1. What Types of Personal Data Do We Collect Over the Internet?
The data we collect depends on what you do when you visit our site. Generally, we will collect no personal data about you when you visit our site unless you voluntarily choose to provide that data to us. Examples include: entering data in a voluntary online form; sending us an e-mail; registering for an online subscription, survey, offer, contest or other promotional event; performing an online service transaction using an assigned user ID and password; or, if you choose to send us your résumé, data included in your résumé.
If you visit our site to browse, read pages, or download data, we may gather and store certain data about your visit transmitted to us automatically by your web browser. This data includes:
- An Internet Protocol address (“IP address”): An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet and if associated with other personally identifiable data could be considered personal data. We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our site. Your IP address may also be used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic data, some of which may be aggregated and then shared as discussed in Section 2 below. We may also keep track of the data you have seen on our site; the type of web browser and operating system used to access the site; the date and time you access the site; the pages you visit, including graphics loaded from each page and other documents you download, such as PDF (Portable Document Format) files and word processing documents; and, if you linked to the site from another site, the address of that site.
Depending on the use that you make of our site and whether you choose to identify yourself by sending an e-mail or by using our online forms or portals, we may also require and collect additional personal data. We need certain personal data to provide our products and services to our customers and end users. The data collected may include company name, company size and sector, individual contact names and job titles, postal address, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, or when performing an online service transaction through a business portal, an assigned user ID and password. From time to time, we may conduct surveys or offer contests or other promotional events and gather additional data in connection with those events. When you receive newsletters or promotional e-mail from us, we may use customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the e-mail has been opened and which links you click in order to provide more focused e-mail communications or other information. We may also employ these technologies to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.
You have the option of whether to perform the transaction and to provide this data. You also have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving future communications from us and to change or modify data previously provided to us. For more information on your options, refer to the Contact Details section below. Please understand, however, that if you choose not to provide us with your personal data, we may be unable to respond to your inquiries. Furthermore, your ability to navigate this site may be curtailed.
2. How Do We Use The Personal Data We Collect Over the Internet?
Most of the personal data collected is necessary to enable us to provide a service to our customers and end users. We may also use this data to improve on the level and type of service we offer to our customers. As part of this interest in improving the service provided, we may process personal data for the purpose of statistical analysis. We may share personal data among our related companies and divisions and within our internal departments in order to fulfill sales and support obligations as well as to our finance and legal departments. In addition, we may need to share personal data with third parties to provide the product or service our customers have requested. For instance, we may enter into marketing agreements, strategic alliances and other relationships with third parties to offer or provide products and services to our customers on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing customer support, hosting websites, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis. When the disclosure of such data is necessary for the provision of products or services, we use reasonable efforts to ensure only that data that is generally necessary to deliver such product or service will be disclosed within the limits of, and in accordance with, the purposes for which the data was originally collected. From time to time, we may also provide third parties with aggregated data that is not linked to any particular customer or individual. We will also provide data if compelled to do so by an appropriately empowered governmental or legal authority, or, as necessary, to protect our rights or the rights of third parties.
3. Do We Transfer Data Overseas?
The Internet is made up of a large variety of international connections and these various connections may result in the transfer of data across international boundaries. We are a global organization with local operations and operating companies in a number of countries worldwide. To fulfill our customer service obligations it may be necessary for us to transfer and process personal data outside the country in which the personal data is collected. We use reasonable efforts to protect personal data even if the country to which the data is to be transferred does not require the same level of data protection. By using our site or by communicating electronically with us you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
4. How Do We Protect The Personal Data We Collect Over The Internet?
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal data, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any data that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the data under our control.
5. Disclaimer Of Responsibility For Privacy And Content At Linked Sites
From time to time, our site may provide you with links to other sites not affiliated with us. While we provide these links as a service to our visitors, we are not responsible for those sites and cannot control the use of data that you submit once you reach those sites, nor can we control the content of what is offered on those sites or on links from those sites.
