Identifying Information, Transactional Information, Site Information and Information You Provide: When you use any of the Sites or communicate with the CX Centers, you may provide to us (and, if so, we will collect) information that will identify you or make you identifiable, including your name, e-mail address, telephone number, Site access credentials, the country in which you are located, your company name, and your job level. We also may collect information regarding any transactions or purchases you make through the Sites (e.g., products purchased, frequency of purchases, etc.); information regarding your use of the Sites; and any other information that you provide or otherwise make available to us in connection with the Sites. We may record conversations that you have with our CX Center representatives. You may choose not to provide certain information to us, but as a result you may not be able to take advantage of some of the features of the Sites or access or receive certain of our products or services.
Cookies & Automatically Collected Information: When you visit our Sites, we use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to collect certain information about you. Cookies are small files that websites and email servers place and access on your computer or other Internet-connected devices to uniquely identify your browser or device or to store information or settings in your device. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict, disable or delete certain cookies. Please note, however, that without certain cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of our Sites.
Our web servers log information such as your device and operating system type, browser type, domain, device ID, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located. The web server also logs information such as the address of the web page that referred you to our Site and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.
To control which web servers place and access cookies and collect information automatically, we place tags on our webpages called “web beacons”, which are small files that allow us to understand the actions of visitors to our Sites. We use similar technology in marketing emails we send, which may enable the placing or accessing of cookies, and also enable us to know if you received the email, if the email was opened and if you clicked on any links included in the email.
Third-parties also collect information about your online activities over time and across different sites when you use our Sites. For example, third-party providers of certain embedded content and tools on our Sites (such as an embedded Twitter or Facebook feed, or an embedded blog commenting system, or any social network that you can use to log in to our Site or to submit information to our Site) collect information directly from you in connection with your interaction with such content and tools. You may review your privacy settings for your accounts with such third-party providers through their respective websites.
Information about your activities on our Sites is collected for use in providing advertising tailored to your individual interests on other websites and online services. You may choose whether to have your information collected for that purpose. We participate in advertising services administered by third-parties. These ad services track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of the automated technologies described above, and such ad services may use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests and/or based on prior visits to our Sites. We and our third-party service providers use first-party cookies and third-party cookies alone or together, as well as other automated means, and the data collected through such means and from other sources to: (i) inform, optimize, and serve ads (including ads based on past visits to our Sites), and (ii) report on our ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services (including how they are related to visits to our Sites).
We use the information we obtain about you when you visit the Sites or contact the CX Centers to:
We retain information only for so long as it is necessary or relevant to fulfill the above-mentioned purposes or comply with applicable law, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems or assist with investigations. After it is no longer necessary for us to retain your information, we dispose of it in accordance with our data retention and disposal policies.
As Required by Law: Subject to applicable law, we disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process, such as a subpoena; (ii) in response to requests by government entities, such as law enforcement authorities; (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical, financial or other harm, injury or loss; or (iv) in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual unlawful activity.
If you would like to update or modify your information or subscription preferences, you may contact us as described in the Contact Us section below. You also may unsubscribe from any of our promotional emails by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any promotional email you receive from us. Changes made to your profile will be effective once saved into our systems in accordance with our standard procedures for implementing user questions regarding your Personal Information.
You have access to your information through your user account on our Sites. You can correct and update this information using this access. You may obtain a copy of your information or have it corrected, if it is incorrect, by sending us a written request by e-mail.
No request for access, rectification or deletion may be considered unless it is made in writing by you when you prove that you are the individual concerned (or the representative, heir or successor of that individual, or the liquidator of the succession, a beneficiary of life insurance or of a death benefit).
When we receive a request for access, rectification, or removal, we will attempt to respond within a reasonable timeframe after receipt of the request.
In certain situations, we may not be able to provide access to all the information we hold about you. Exceptions to the access requirement are meant to be limited and specific. The reasons for denying access will be provided to you upon request.
Exceptions may include information that is prohibitively costly to provide, information that contains references to other individuals, information that cannot be disclosed for legal, security or commercial proprietary reasons and information that is subject to solicitor-client or litigation privilege.
A reasonable fee may be charged for the transcription, reproduction, or transmission of your information.
We use commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard and protect the security of all data, inclusive of any information collected by us from you through the Sites and the CX Centers. It is also important for you to comply with the access controls (e.g., username/password management) and other applicable provisions of the Terms to protect against unauthorized access to the devices you use to access the Sites.
Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to guarantee the absolute security of all information collected or transmitted through our Sites or the CX Centers.
You therefore understand and agree that (i) there are limits to the security and confidentiality of the information we collect that are beyond our control; (ii) the security, integrity and confidentiality of all information and data exchanged between you and us through our Sites and at our CX Centers cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) such information may be viewed or altered by a third party at the time of transfer. For these reasons, we cannot be held responsible for any loss, capture or alteration of such information.
Our Sites may provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. Those linked websites may be operated by companies not affiliated with us and we do not control or endorse any such websites. Linked websites may have their own privacy policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. You agree that your use of a linked website is at your own risk and that we are not responsible for the content of any linked websites that are not affiliated with us, any use of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites.
