Information We Collect
Information Provided by You. We collect personal and business information that you provide us through the Site or the Services, or through other means such as email or online interactive forums. The information we collect from you will generally include your name, email address, address, phone number, company name, job title, photos, and information about your company, your company’s clients or potential clients, or other business associates. When inviting other persons or businesses to view the content you have provided to the Service, you will share their names and email addresses with us as well. The information you provide may also include certain preferences that may be used to enhance your user experience, such as your preferences regarding products, services, technologies and manufacturers. When you register as a user and pay for the Services, you will provide us with your billing name and address, your credit card number and expiration date, and any other information required to process your payments. You can choose not to provide us with certain personal and company information, but then you may not be able to gain access to or full value of the features and benefits of our Site or Services.
Automatic Collection of Information. Like many Web sites and mobile applications, we automatically track certain information about you as you use our Site and Services to help us manage our systems and deliver optimal user experience. This information may include, your IP address, the URLs and web pages you’ve visited along with frequency and duration of the visits, your geographic location, information accessed, and your browser type, operating system or mobile device information.
We use “cookies” and other similar technologies to collect visitor information. This allows us to provide information which is targeted to your interests and to make your experience more efficient and convenient. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server and stored in your device’s storage system. Most cookies we may use will be “session cookies,” meaning that they will be automatically deleted at the end of a session. You may be able to configure your device or browser to decline the cookies we use if your browser or device permits.
Use of Information
The primary purpose for gathering personal and company information is for authorization and use within the Site and Services. We use information that we collect for the following general purposes: to improve your experience in using our Site and the Services and, in doing so, to enhance your personal and professional productivity; to communicate with you and other users regarding products, services and informational notices that we think may be of interest to you; to fulfill your requests for products and services, to customize the advertising and content you see; to contact you; and for administrative and internal business purposes.
We may use anonymous information for any purpose, including, but not limited to, analyzing trends, providing a better user experience and gathering broad demographic information for aggregate use. We do not use this anonymous data in a manner that would identify you personally.
Through use of our Site and the Services, you may choose to share files, data, photos, usernames, passwords, and other information related to your account with other individuals, companies or users; in doing so, you may disclose sensitive company or personal information contained therein and you do so at your own risk.
Information Sharing with Third Parties
- With our service providers, if the disclosure will enable them to process payments made by you using the Site or Services or otherwise perform a business, professional or technical support function for us or you;
- As necessary, to identify, investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud or other abuse related to the Site; and
- To respond to judicial process and provide information to law enforcement agencies or in connection with an investigation on matters related to public safety, as permitted by law, or otherwise as required by law.
We work closely with certain affiliates and business partners with whom we may share general or aggregated statistical information. This aggregated, non-identifying information may include, usage patterns, trends, preferences and other collective characteristics of our users and serves to help us, our affiliates and others evaluate and tailor our communications, advertisements, products, services and general business practices to provide greater benefit to our clients.
From time to time we share the personal information we collect with trusted affiliates and business partners who work with or on behalf of us. These companies may use your personal information to enhance and personalize your experience with us, to communicate with you about services, products and events that may be of interest to you and for other promotional purposes. Information sharing allows us to introduce new services, products and resources based on your interests and needs. With that in mind, your information may be shared with other select companies whose products and services you may find useful and those select companies will handle, store, retain, use, share and access personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies, and we disclaim any and all liability relating thereto.
Every now and then, we may invite you to take part in surveys and promotions. The information we collect from these surveys and promotions may be matched with individual accounts to improve your overall experience, and may be shared with select third parties.
In addition, we reserve the right to disclose and transfer your information, including your personal information and anonymous information about you: (a) to a subsequent owner, co- owner or operator of the Site; or (b) in connection with a merger, consolidation, restructuring, the sale of substantially all of our equity ownership interests and/or assets or other corporate change, including during the course of any due diligence process.
Opting Out of Information Sharing
We understand and respect that not all of our end users may want to allow us to share their information with other select companies. If you do not want us to share your information, please contact us at the email address referenced in the Contact Us section of this policy, and we will (as soon as reasonably practicable) take steps to ensure that we do not share your information with other companies (other than service providers that assist us in providing the Site and the Service). When contacting us, please clearly state your request, including your name, mailing address, email address and phone number.
However, under the following circumstances, we may still be required to share your personal information:
- If we respond to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, or if we need to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
- If we believe it is necessary to restrict or inhibit any user from using any of our Site, including, without limitation, by means of “hacking” or defacing any portion thereof.
