Information We Collect
Information We Collect from Unregistered Visitors
Visitors to each of our web sites can access the web site’s home page and browse some areas of the site without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We do track information provided to us by your browser, including the web site you came from (known as the “referring URL”), the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you.
We gather information about you that is automatically collected by our web server, such as your IP address and domain name. We will use this information to personalize its offerings and presentations to you, facilitate your movements throughout our web site, provide personalized services, and to communicate to you individually.
Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, web sites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the web site, and some web site functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies.
Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, we may elect to associate your registration information with cookies that our web site places on your computer’s hard drive. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible.
We also may use Web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of our web site as well as your use of special promotions or newsletters. Web beacons are tiny graphic image files, embedded in a web page in GIF, JPG, or HTML format, that provide a presence on the web page and send back to its home server (which can belong to the host site, a network advertiser, or some other third party) information from a user’s browser, such as the IP address, the URL of the page on which the beacon is located, the type of browser that is accessing the site, and the ID number of any cookies on the user’s computer that were previously placed by that server. Web beacons can also be used to place a cookie on the user’s browser. The information collected by Web beacons allows us to statistically monitor (i) how many people are using our web site (ii) how many people open our emails, and (iii) for what purposes these actions are being taken. Our web beacons are not used to track your activity outside of our web site. We do not link non-personally identifiable information from web beacons to personally identifiable information without your permission.
Uses We Make of Information
We create aggregate date about visitors to our web sites for product development and improvement activities. We also use it for market analysis. We may provide information from our web site in aggregate form, with identifying information removed, to third parties. Any third party that receives aggregated data must agree not to attempt to re-identify the people it belongs to. Depending on our agreement with the third parties, we may or may not charge for this information.
We may also personalize our web site based on your interests. For example, you may see different articles in different places on our web site based on information you have shared with us, or information we have gained by observing your previous behavior, or information we may have gained from your interactions with a third party that shares information with us. We use information for our own internal marketing, research, and related purposes.
Third Party Access to Information
Types of Third Party Disclosure
In addition to aggregate information (discussed previously), we may share some kinds of personally identifiable information with third parties as described below.
- Legal Requirements: We may release account and other personal information when we believe release is required to comply with law.
- Consent: We may release personally identifiable information to a third party in accordance with your consent, subject to the purposes and limits that we disclose when we request your consent.
Protection of Information
We have implemented technology and security policies, rules and other measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also protect your information by requiring that those who have access to or as associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.
If we discover that a third party inadvertently disclosed personal information about any of our customers, we will take immediate action to prevent further occurrences.
No Guaranty of Non-Disclosure
We cannot fully ensure that your personal information will not be disclosed to third parties. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
