1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT 

We collect information about users of the Site directly, automatically when you visit the Site, and sometimes from third parties. Some of this information may be considered “personal information” under various applicable laws. We consider information that identifies you as a specific, identified individual (such as a user’s name, email address, or phone number) to be personal information. We will also treat additional information, including IP addresses and cookie identifiers, as “personal information” where required by applicable law.  Note that we may de-identify personal information so that it is non-personal, such as aggregating or converting it to a code, sometimes using a function commonly known as “hash”. We will treat de-identified information as non-personal to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law. If we combine non-personal information with personal information, then we will treat the combined information as personal information under this Privacy Policy.  

1.1 Information that you Provide Directly

You may provide information to us in connection with the Client Services, your use of the Site and when you otherwise interact with or contact us, including name, phone number, e-mail address, and the company you are affiliated with. We may also collect other types of information, such as demographic information and information you choose to provide in connection with a feature or promotion we offer, such as an online forum or a sweepstakes or survey.  

1.2 Information We Collect Automatically 

We and our third party business partners (including any third party service providers or third party content, advertising, and analytics providers) may use a variety of technologies, including cookies and web beacons, that automatically or passively collect information whenever you access, use, or otherwise interact with the Site (“Usage Information”). Usage Information includes the hardware model, browser and operating system you are using, the URL or advertisement that referred you to our Site, any search terms you entered into a search engine that led you to our Site, the areas within our Site that you visited, and the time of day you visited our Site, your time zone, location information, and mobile network (if applicable), among other information. We may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier for any computer, mobile phone, or other device used to access our Site.

Web Beacons: Additionally, we may use, and may allow third parties to use, web beacons on the Site to monitor the effectiveness of advertising or for other legitimate purposes. Web beacons, also known as “Web bugs” “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs” are small, graphic images on web pages or web-based documents or in email messages that allow us or third parties to monitor who is visiting the Site. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email can act as a web beacon. Web beacons collect the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the web beacon comes from and the time it was viewed. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Site, to monitor how users navigate the Site, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular links were actually viewed. Web beacons may be linked to your personal information. 

Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

Portability: You have the right, in certain circumstances, to request that we provide your personal information to you in a format that can be transferred to another entity.

Automated Decisionmaking: You have the right to request information about a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, and request a review of such decisions.

Verification Procedures: We must verify your identity for everyone’s protection, so we may require you to provide us with verification information prior to accessing any records containing personal information about you. We do this by:

Asking you to provide personal identifiers we can match against information we may have collected from you previously and confirm your request using the email or telephone account stated in the request; or

Having you submit your request through your account page, which will automatically verify your identity and will result in faster processing of your request.

We will use the information you provide for verification only for the purpose of verification. We may have a reason under the law why we do not have to respond to your request or respond to it in a more limited way than you anticipated. If we do, we will explain that to you in our response.
