Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with the best and most useful content and services. Several of the services and features that we offer on our Website request information from the User as a condition of usage. We collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, company name, email addresses, phone numbers, and mobile numbers. Users may also provide, on a voluntary basis, your current job title, race, gender, disability or veteran status. Passwords are encrypted and not stored directly. We may also receive information about you and your organization from other sources and add it to the information you provided to us.
“Cookies” store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to our Website. Cookies are active in some portions, but not all portions, or our Website. Cookies by themselves do not tell us anything about you. We need to combine them with the personally identifiable information you give us. We then use this information to improve our services. You can choose to prevent us from obtaining cookies by adjusting your settings on your browser.
We may also use other technologies that allow us to track general user-traffic patterns and/or automatically receive and record information from our servers and from your browser, including your IP address, the time of your visit to pages on our Website, and information about pages you visited. Even if you have registered for one of our products or services, the information we gather through the use of tracking technologies cannot be matched with any personally identifiable information about you.
We may use the information we gather for four general purposes: (1) to customize the advertising and the content you see; (2) to enhance the User experience; (3) to fulfill your requests for certain products and services and (4) to send you information you agreed to receive about topics we think will be of interest to you.
