What Information Do We Collect and How Do We Collect It?

When you visit our website, download our app or use our other Services, you may provide us with two types of information: information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis, and website use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our website or use our app or our other Services.

  • Information You Choose to Provide

We collect information about you, your firm, your company, and your practices when you register to use our website or app, register for our Services, buy our Services, or register for our email newsletters and alerts. The information we collect includes which may identify you personally such as your name, phone number, email address, address, employer, job title, and any other personal information you choose to provide through your interactions with our company or our affiliates, or our Services (“personal information”). If you choose to correspond with us through email, we will retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We also collect information you provide by filling in forms on our website or our other Services, details of transactions you carry out on our website or through our other Services, your search queries on our website or our other Services, and any other type of information you provide using our website or our other Services, including information to be published, displayed, or posted on public areas of the website or transmitted to other users (“User Contributions”). Your User Contributions are published and transmitted on our website or our other Services at our own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the website or our other Services with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

We collect this information directly from you when you provide it to us when you register to use our website or app, register for our Services, buy our Services, register for our email newsletters and alerts, or interact with our company or our affiliates through our website, our app, our other Services, or by email.

  • Website Use Information

As you navigate through and interact with our website, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect information about how our website is used, including the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited before and after visiting our website, using a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server logs. We also collect information about which advertisements and promotions users have seen and how users responded to them using small pieces of code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs,” which are small electronic files that permit us to count users who have visited pages on our website or opened our emails and other website-related statistics.

We collect this information automatically as you navigate our website. Information collected automatically may include usage details, IP addresses, information about your internet connection, equipment, operating system and browser type, and information collected through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies. The information we collect automatically is only statistical data and does not include personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways to improve our website and to deliver a better and more personalized service.

  • App Use Information

When you download, register with, access, or use the app, collect information you provide directly, such as personal information or User Contributions. We may also automatically collect certain details of your access and use of the app, including traffic data, location data, logs, and other communication data and the resources you access and use through the app. We may also collect information about your mobile device and internet connection, including your IP address, operating system, browser type, mobile network information, and the device’s telephone number. The app may also access metadata and other information associated with files stored on your device, which may include photographs, audio and video clips, personal contacts and address book information, and other files.

We collect this information automatically as you use the app. If you do not want us to collect this information, you may delete the app at any time. You may also have the option to opt out of data collection or sharing via your device’s settings, although this may disable some of the app’s features.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not generally store any personal information that you provided to us in your cookies.

How Do We Use Cookies?

We use the information we collect from cookies and web server logs to differentiate you from other users, to customize your experience while using our website, and to calculate the aggregate number of visitors to our website and determine which pages are most popular in order to improve our website and better serve our customers and potential customers. In some cases, we also use cookies to prevent you from seeing unnecessary advertisements or requiring you to log in more than is necessary for security.

How To Manage Cookies

You can set your browser to accept cookies or enable a Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature on your web browser or through your mobile device’s settings to request that websites and apps do not track your browsing activities. If you do not want your browsing activities to be tracked, you can enable Do Not Track signals by visiting the settings or preferences page of your web browser, although many web sites do not respond to DNT requests. Our website does not respond to DNT requests, and we may enter into alliances, partnerships, or other business arrangements with third parties who may also keep track of your browsing activities, including but not limited to cookies, information about your computer and internet connection, operating system, and browser type, and information you provide through your interactions with our website, such as registration information, search queries, and page visits. Such information may be used to improve our website, such as by estimating our audience size and usage patterns, speeding up searches, and customizing our website according to individual interests.

Analytics Tools

Our website and/or other Services use analytic tools to collect information about use of the website and/or other Services. These tools collect information such as how often users visit the website and/or other Services, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other websites they used prior to coming to the website and/or other Services. We use the information we get from these tools to maintain and improve the website and our other Services. We do not combine the information collected through the use of these tools with personally identifiable information.

The tools we are using are: Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, HotJar, Facebook Pixel, and Dynamics 365 Marketing.

How Do We Use Your Information?

Broadly speaking, we use your personal information to present our website and its contents to you, to provide our app and our other Services and their contents to you, provide you with information, products, or services that you request from us, to notify you of changes to our Services or any other products or services we offer through it, to administer and expand our business activities, and to provide customer service.

As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or any dissolution.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

How Do We Secure Information Transmissions? — Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason, we request that you do not send private information to us by email. Some of the information you may enter on our website may be transmitted securely via Secure Sockets Layer SSL, 128-bit encryption services, which are enabled by a reputable SSL certificate provider (Thawte OR Verisign). Pages utilizing this technology will have URLs that start with HTTPS instead of HTTP. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.

Certain Disclosures — We may disclosure your personal information if required to do so by law or subpoena or if we believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law or comply with legal process served on us or our affiliates; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, our Services, the users of the Services, and/or our affiliates; (c) act under circumstances to protect the safety of users of the Services, us, or third parties.

Marketing

Occasionally, we use your personal information to notify you about important changes to our website, app, Services and new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may notify us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at [email protected].

Accessing and Correcting Your Information

You may also send us an email at [email protected] to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

If you delete your User Contributions from the website or other Services, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other users of our Services. Proper access and use of information provided on the website, including User Contributions, is governed by our terms of use.

Residents of certain states, such as California and other states and countries may have additional personal information rights and choices. Please see What Are Your Data Protection Rights? for more information.
