Website Terms of Use / Privacy Policy

WEBSITE TERMS OF USE

LF Search, LLC (the “Company”) is a boutique retained executive and professional search firm. The Company provides website features and services through its website, LFSearch.com (the “Site”), subject to the following terms and conditions (the “Terms of Use”):

1. Privacy Policy

The Company gathers certain information (“Candidate Information”) submitted by users through the Site at www.lfsearch.com/candidates.

Candidate Information gathered in this way is stored in encrypted format by Zoho Corporation (“Zoho”), which provides the Company with business software to manage its website and candidate database. You can learn more about the privacy policy of Zoho at https://www.zoho.com/privacy.html (external link). Pursuant to the consent and agreement (located on the Candidate page, here) accepted by all users submitting Candidate Information, the Company may communicate this information to prospective employers for the purpose of procuring potential employees, and the Company may earn fees in connection with using the Candidate Information in this way. The Company will not otherwise sell or share any of the Candidate Information, except as required by law. Any user who has submitted Candidate Information may withdraw consent at any time for the Company to share that information by emailing a request to info@lfsearch.com

The Company also receives emails through a form on its Site marked “Get in touch with us today,” whereby users may submit their name, email address, and message to the Company, which are stored by Microsoft Outlook (the “Emailed Information”). The Company will not sell or share the Emailed Information with any third party, except as required by law. The Candidate Information and the Emailed Information are the only private information that the Company collects through the Site.

This Privacy Policy covers only data that the Company collects through the Site, and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, the data collection practices of any affiliate or other third party, including any third-party operators of web pages to which the Site links, and any information that the Company collects offline or through any websites, products, or services that do not display a direct link to this Privacy Policy.

The effective date of this Privacy Policy is September 19, 2018. The Company may modify this Privacy Policy at any time upon posting a service announcement to this Site or by sending an email to your primary email address (if you are a registered user who has submitted Private Information). Your continued use of the Site after the effective date of changes to the Privacy Policy will be deemed to be your agreement to the modified Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or any other Terms of Use, you may contact us at info@lfsearch.com

2. Cookies

In addition, the Site utilizes features from two third-party sources: 1. Zoho and 2. blog and website hosting platform WordPress.com (“WordPress”). These third-parties may use small text files known as “cookies” to gather certain analytical information and save certain user preferences. The Site does not store the Candidate Information or the Emailed Information in cookies. Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their ‘settings’ preferences. However, this is your responsibility, not the Company’s, to do so. You can learn more about the privacy and cookie policies of Zoho and WordPress through the following links (external links):
