When you enter and browse the Site, we may collect two different types of information about you: information you provide to us, and information we collect through technology.
Information You Provide to Us
In order to view the publicly accessible portions of the Site, you do not have to provide any personal information to us. If you do provide any information to us through the Site, including through our Business Introduction Form or other contact forms or to register for access to protected content or services, , we will collect and store such information in a way that allows us to relate it to you personally. Such information may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, facsimile number, the type of company you are representing as well as the industry that you are involved with. We refer to such information as personally identifiable information. Additionally, we may collect and retain a record of all communications with you.
Information We Collect Through Technology
We may collect information about you through technology. For example, we may collect your IP address or other unique device identifier each time you request a page during a visit to the Site. At times, we may also use IP addresses or other device identifiers to collect information regarding the frequency with which users browse various parts of the Site. We may use this information to troubleshoot issues with access or use of our Site. We may associate your device identifier with your personal information.
The Site may also use other technical methods to track and analyze the traffic patterns on the Site, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the Site. These technical methods may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party authorized by us to collect information on our behalf. We may also use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send our Site users to determine whether such users have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. We may collect the information from use of these technical methods in a form that is personally identifiable.
