I.             What Information Does the Website Collect?

A.           Information You Provide to Us.  We may ask you to provide to us via the Website (or you may choose to submit or post) certain categories of information such as: (1) personally identifiable information, which is information that identifies you personally, such as your name and e-mail address (“Personal Information”); and (2) demographic information, e.g., your title, type of business and business location (“Demographic Information”).  We may collect this information through various forms and in various places on the Website, including account registration forms, “contact us” forms, or when you otherwise interact with the Website.  To the extent we combine Demographic Information with your Personal Information we collect directly from you on the Website, we will treat the combined data as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

B.           Information We Collect or Store as You Access and Use the Website.  In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to us via the Website, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically (or passively) store or collect certain information whenever you visit or interact with the Website (“Usage Information”).  This Usage Information may be stored or accessed using a variety of technologies that may be downloaded to your personal computer, browser, laptop, tablet, mobile phone or other device (a “Device”) whenever you visit or interact with the Website.  To the extent we associate Usage Information with your Personal Information we collect directly from you on the Website, we will treat it as Personal Information.

This Usage Information may include:

§  Your IP address, UDID or other unique identifier (“Device Identifier”).  A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device used to access the Website, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier;

§  Your Device functionality (including browser, operating system, hardware, mobile network information);

§  The URL that referred you to our Site;

§  The areas within our Website that you visit and your activities there, including remembering you and your preferences;

§  Your Device location;

§  Your Device characteristics; and

§  Certain other Device data, including the time of day, among other information.

We may use various methods and technologies to store or collect Usage Information (“Tracking Technologies”).  Tracking Technologies may set, change, alter or modify settings or configurations on your Device.  A few of the Tracking Technologies include, without limitation, the following (and subsequent technology and methods later developed):

Cookies.  A cookie is a data file placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Website.  A Flash cookie (or locally shared object) is a data file placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built-in to or downloaded by you to your Device. HTML5 cookies can be programmed through HTML5 local storage.  Unlike Flash cookies, HTML5 cookies do not require a plug-in.  Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some but not all instances can be blocked in the future by selecting certain settings.  Each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard.  Also, these tools may not be effective with regard to Flash cookies or HTML5 cookies.  For information on disabling Flash cookies go to Adobe’s web site www.adobe.com.  Please be aware that if you disable or remove cookies, Flash cookies, or HTML5 cookies on your Device, some parts of the Website may not function properly, and that when you revisit the Website your ability to limit cookies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.

Web Beacons.  Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1x1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in the Website’s pages and messages.  Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon.  Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Website, to monitor how users navigate the Website, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.

Embedded Scripts.  An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Website, 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 Website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

ETag, or entity tag.  A feature of the cache in browsers.  It is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL.  If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned.  Used in this manner ETags are a form of Device Identifier.  ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.

We may use Tracking Technologies for a variety of purposes, including:

Strictly Necessary.  We may use cookies or other Tracking Technologies that we consider are strictly necessary to allow you to use and access the Website, including cookies required to prevent fraudulent activity, improve security or allow you to make use of shoppingâ??cart functionality.

Performanceâ??Related.  We may use cookies or other Tracking Technologies that are useful in order to assess the performance of the Website, including as part of our analytic practices or otherwise to improve the content, products or services offered through the Website.

Functionalityâ??Related.  We may use cookies or other Tracking Technologies that are required to offer you enhanced functionality when accessing the Website, including identifying you when you signâ??in to the Website or keeping track of our specified preferences, including in terms of the presentation of content on the Website.  

We obtain your consent to our information storage or collection Tracking Technologies by providing you with transparent information in our Privacy Policy and providing you with the opportunity to make a choice to disable cookies as set forth above.  Please note that we are not required to obtain your consent to the information collection Tracking Technologies identified above that are strictly necessary.  You have the right to object to the use of other information storage or collection technologies.  There may be other Tracking Technologies now and later devised and used by us in connection with the Website.
