Our Press collects information from our website users, subscribers and customers.
we collect and how we use it to provide better services to our customers.
We may collect demographic information (such as job title and purchasing responsibilities,
company information and professional certification). For internal purposes, we use
this information to communicate with users and provide requested services, and,
for our website visitors, to provide a more personalized experience on our sites.
We use aggregate demographic information about our audience to improve our service,
for marketing purposes and/or industry reporting purposes.
Many of our products and services are free to subscribers who meet certain demographic
criteria. Independent auditors may need to certify the eligibility of these subscribers.
In order to do that, we may collect unique identifiers that we disclose to the auditors
strictly for industry reporting and audit verification purposes.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time we invite users to provide information via surveys or contests.
Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user
therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested contact information (such as
name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code or job title).
In addition to other uses set forth in this policy, contact information collected
in connection with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award
prizes, to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the site, and may be shared
with sponsors of such surveys or contests.
We use reasonable precautions to protect our users' personal information and to
store it securely. Sensitive information that is transmitted to us online is encrypted
and is transmitted to us securely. In addition, access to all of our users' information,
not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only employees
who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a billing clerk
or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable
information. Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information
are kept in a secure environment.
users are aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under which circumstances,
if any, we disclose it. Users should check this policy frequently to keep abreast
of any changes.
