Information Collection and Use

Referenceglobe is the sole owner of the information collected on this website. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Referenceglobe will not provide any personally identifying information on individual members to any third party, except in connection with possible employment, with the business' consent, as explained below.

All registered Referenceglobe members click the "SIGN-UP/SUBMIT" in the Registration form to agree to the Referenceglobe Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. Registered businesses on Referenceglobe agree that some profile information is made accessible to customers who conduct searches of the Referenceglobe database. This information includes businesses skills, experience, education level, compensation, work availability, region, self-evaluation, and statistics. Such information does not identify the specificity of the individual member.



Cookies are text files that websites use to capture information about the members using their sites. Referenceglobe uses cookies to recognize the information registered businesses and customers provide on the Web Site. (For example, a registered member logs out of the Web Site. The member returns to Referenceglobe to log into the Web Site. The member's username already appears in the login form, and the member is only required to enter their password to login.) Referenceglobe members must have cookies enabled on their browser(s). Cookie preferences are set within each browser's Internet options/preferences.

Should Referenceglobe allow advertisers on the Web Site, some of these advertisers may use cookies. Referenceglobe will have no access to or control over these cookies.

Log Files

Referenceglobe logs IP addresses for system administration purposes. This information is used to diagnose server problems, monitor traffic patterns, analyze trends, administer the website, track member user patterns, and identify the most popular areas of the website to deliver content most relevant to registered members. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information and are only used to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use, except in the case of fraud.


Should Referenceglobe share aggregated demographic information with partners and/or advertisers, such information will not be linked to personal information that identifies individual members.


Referenceglobe contains links to other websites and is not responsible for the privacy practices of such websites. Referenceglobe encourages its members to read the privacy policies of all websites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Referenceglobe.


Referenceglobe takes every precaution to protect registered member information. When businesses and customers submit sensitive information via the website, their information is protected both online and offline. Referenceglobe is a VeriSign Secure Site. All transactions performed through Referenceglobe are conducted in a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) session. The Secure Socket Layer encrypts all transaction data for transmittal in a format that prevents data theft. This process protects all private information from being disclosed to third parties. While on a secure page, the lock icon at the bottom of a Web browser (i.e. Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer) becomes locked. While Referenceglobe uses encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect member information offline. All member information is restricted within our offices. Servers used to store personally identifiable information are housed in a secure, supervised environment. In addition, only Referenceglobe employees who need specific information to perform a task are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are current with our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, employees are notified and reminded about the importance of privacy, and what they can do to ensure the protection of sensitive member information.
