INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
- Information Collection.
We collect information from you in several different ways on this Site. One goal in collecting personal information from you is to provide an efficient, meaningful, and customized experience. For example, we can use your personal information to:
- help you quickly find information and services.
- help us create content that is most relevant to you.
- alert you to new information, products, and services that we offer.
(a) Email Addresses. The Site permits you to enter your email address for purposes including but not limited to: to request us to contact you for information and/or services; to sign up for email newsletters and special offers; or to sign up for white papers or resource articles.
(b) Cookies and Other Technology. Like many sites, the Site employs cookies to speed your navigation of the Site, recognize you and your access privileges, and track your Site usage.
(ii) We may use third-party advertising companies to help tailor site content to users or to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ cookies to measure advertising effectiveness (such as which web pages are visited). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies is not linked to any personal information collected by us.
(iii) As an example, Facebook collects certain information via cookies to determine which web pages are visited. Please note that any information collected by Facebook via cookies is not linked to any customer’s personal information collected by us.
(d) Log Files. As is true of most web sites, the Site server automatically recognizes the Internet URL from which you access the Site. We may also log your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, Internet service provider, and date/time stamp for system administration, order verification, internal marketing, and system troubleshooting purposes. (An IP address may indicate the location of your computer on the Internet.)
(e) Age. We respect children’s privacy. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from children under age 13. Elsewhere on the Site, you have represented and warranted that you are either 18 years of age or using the Site with the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any personal information to us, and rely on a parent or guardian to assist you.
- Information Use and Disclosure.
(a) Internal Use. We use your personal information to provide you information into our services. We may internally use your personal information to improve the Sites’ content and layout, to improve outreach and for our own marketing efforts (including marketing our services and products to you), and to determine general marketplace information about visitors to the Site.
(b) Communications with You: We will use your personal information to communicate with you about the Site. Also, we may send you a confirmation email when you email us or sign up for newsletters. We may send you a service-related announcement on the rare occasions when it is necessary. If you submit your email address, we use it to deliver the information to you. We always permit you to unsubscribe or opt out of future emails (see the opt out section, below, for more details).
(c) External Use. We want to provide you with excellent service. We do not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose your specific personal information or financial information to anyone, except that:
(iii) We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page, or the size of an order placed on a certain date) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.
The Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”). We use SSL encryption to protect your personal information online, and we also take several steps to protect your personal information in our facilities. Access to your personal information is restricted. Only employees who need access to your personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. Finally, we rely on third-party service providers for the physical security of some of our computer hardware. We believe that their security procedures are adequate. For example, when you visit the Site, you access servers that are kept in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall.
While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. 100% complete security does not presently exist anywhere online or offline.
Upon your request, we will (a) correct or update your personal information; and/or (b) stop sending emails to your email address. You can make these requests by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do not email your credit-card number or other sensitive information.
