5. Notice of Information We Collect and How We Use It. McAllister collects certain information from and about Users in two ways: with “cookies” and from the User.

In many cases, the data we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable way, without any reference to Personal Information. However, under some privacy and data protection laws, this data could be considered Personal Information. This Privacy Policy governs how we use this data when it is considered your Personal Information.

We define Personal Information as information that can (directly or indirectly) identify, locate, or be used to contact you or communicate with you, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, characteristics, or descriptions (such as gender and date of birth), and other similar and associated information (“Personal Information”).


McAllister may use “cookies” to personalize or enhance your user experience. A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a website, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and log-in information as well as providing personalized functionality.

More specifically, our jobs site uses essential cookies, and our file sharing site uses cookies to track e-mail, first name, last name, and company.

McAllister reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our Website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging a site that relies on third-party cookies into our Website).

Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings, then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on this Website.
