HOW THIS INFORMATION IS USED AND MANAGED
We collect the minimum amount of information necessary to successfully deliver our services and all information collected is used to improve the content of our web site and services, to permit customization of content and/or layout for each individual member, and for aggregate customer analysis. Information is retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, for the period specified at the service (e.g. for retention of resumes), or as required by law.
When services are provided by our business partners, contact information from the order form is shared with that partner. No individual client information is otherwise shared with or furnished to any third party.
ROCG uses client contact information to provide services, send news about our company and deliver promotional material from our partners. Clients may choose not to receive these communications by contacting us via email, telephone or fax.
Financial information is used only to bill a member for products and services purchased from us and for aggregate customer analysis, as described in the Security section below.
Client data collected by ROCG may be transferred between ROCG companies where it is necessary to meet the purpose for which information has been submitted. By submitting data on the ROCG website you are providing explicit consent to inter-regional transmission of such data.

Respondent confidentiality includes the following principles:
- ROCG uses respondents’ personally-identifiable information only for internal research purposes.
- ROCG makes its consultants and subcontractors aware of our confidentiality principles, and they agree to maintain and respect respondents’ confidentiality.
