Privacy Policy

Five Star Staffing shares your concern regarding how your information is used, and we take this concern seriously. Our practice is to carefully and sensibly manage your information in order to maintain your trust. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting fivestarstaffing.com you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

Personal Information About Customers
The information we gather from customers helps us personalize and continually improve the customer experience at Five Star Staffing. We use the information that you provide in order to respond to your requests, provide requested services to you, customize future transactions, and improving our communication with you.  We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies” to obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses Five Star Staffing and other content served by or on behalf of Five Star Staffing on other Web sites. Emails are the primary form of communication. To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from Five Star Staffing if your computer supports such capabilities and we make an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.

Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and provide features to facilitate purchases, maintain your profile, and organize your history. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the settings or visiting the Website of its manufacturer. However, please note, that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of all of our sites’ features. In addition, disabling cookies may cancel opt-outs that rely on cookies, such as web analytics or targeted advertising opt-outs. Hence, we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you may have difficulty being selected for jobs on our site.

Web Beacons
We also use “web beacons,” “pixel tags,” “clear GIFs” or similar means (individually or collectively “Web Beacons“) on our Site. A Web Beacon is an electronic image, often a single pixel, embedded on web pages. Web Beacons are ordinarily not visible to users. Web Beacons allow us to count the number of users who have visited certain pages of the Site, to deliver branded services and to generate statistics about how our Site is used. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your personally identifiable information. The use of cookies by our third party tracking partners is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners may use session ID cookies to support our site functionality such as web analytics reporting.

Information Sharing
Information about our site patrons is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below and with subsidiaries Five Star Staffing controls that either are subject to this Privacy Notice or follow practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Notice.  We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as e-mails, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results and links (including paid listings and links), providing customer service, and fulfilling orders. These companies may be granted access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but are forbidden to use this information outside of their specific Five Star Staffing functions.

Transfers of Information
As part of our international operations, we may transfer information about you to any jurisdiction where we do business. Even if those jurisdictions do not have the same privacy laws as the jurisdiction where you reside, we will treat your information as subject to the protections described in this Privacy Notice. When you use our websites or services, you agree that we may transfer information about you as described here. Additionally, we reserve the right to transfer information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.

Protection of Five Star Staffing and Others
We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Five Star Staffing, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Five Star Staffing will not sell, rent, share, or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.

Security of Information
We are committed to ensuring data security across our entire website. To this end, we work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you provide. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when you finish using a shared computer. Five Star Staffing follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and upon receipt. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, Five Star Staffing cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on the Site, you can email us at info@fivestarstaffing.com.

Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites
Our site may include third-party advertising and links to other Web sites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party Web sites. These third-party Web sites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or “serve”) the advertisements that appear on our Web site directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party Web sites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.  You may also find that the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies (also called “ad networks” or “network advertisers”), including information about how to opt-out of their information collection.

Accessible Information
Five Star Staffing gives you access to information about your account and your interactions with Five Star Staffing for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. You can add or update certain information on pages where it is allowed for input. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, you may unsubscribe with a single click. If you do not want to receive Terms of Service and other legal notices from us those notices will still govern your use of Five Star Staffing, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes.

Examples of the information we collect and analyze include the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; e-mail address; password; computer and connection information such as browser type, version, and time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system, and platform; purchase history, which we sometimes aggregate with similar information from other customers; the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through, and from our Web site, including date and time; cookie number; and deals you viewed or searched for. We may also use browser data such as cookies, Flash cookies (also known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our Web site for fraud prevention and other purposes. During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page.

Information You Can Access
Examples of information you can access easily at Five Star Staffing include your account details, up-to-date information regarding recent orders that contain personally identifiable information (including name, e-mail, password) as well as payment settings (including credit card information and gift certificates, gift card, and check balances); email notification settings; recommendations (including recent product view history, prior order history, and general usage).

Conditions of Use 
If you choose to visit Five Star Staffing, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms of Service, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of North Carolina. If you have any concern about privacy at Five Star Staffing, please contact us at privacy@fivestarstaffing.com with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the Terms of Service will change as well. We may email periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
