TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

In order to better provide you with online, networking, contact and other professional services we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Aggregate Information. We are the sole owners of the information collected on the Site. We only have access to collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you.  We may sell or rent this information.

Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities on the Site, such as registering for an account, downloading or purchasing Services, submitting content and/or posting content in the user forums, or sending us feedback, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself.  Examples of PII may include your first and last name, email address, mailing address, employer, job title and department, telephone and facsimile numbers, credit card and payment information and other identifying information necessary to provide Services. We may share PII with our Service Partners.

Aggregate Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Site and what other sites may have directed you to us. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include, but is not limited to, the Website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Site, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.  We may share aggregated information with our Service Partners.

How We Collect and Use Information

We do not collect any PII about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain PII to us when you elect to use certain products or Services available on the Site. These may include: (a) registering for an account on our Site; (b) signing up for special offers from selected third parties; (c) sending us an email message; (d) submitting a form or transmitting other information by telephone or letter; or (e) submitting your credit card or other payment information when ordering and purchasing products and Services on our Site.

We will primarily use your PII to provide product or Services offerings to you. We will also use certain forms of PII to enhance the operation of our Site, improve our internal and external marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Site use, improve our product and service offerings, and customize our Site’s content, layout, and services. We may use PII to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices. Finally, we may use your PII to resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems and enforce our agreements with you, including our Site Terms of Use Agreement, and this Policy.

We may, from time to time, contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

4. Release of Information

We do provide some of our product and Services offerings through contractual arrangements made with affiliates, service providers, advertisers, partners and other third parties (“Service Partners”). We and our Service Partners may need to use PII in order to perform tasks between our respective sites, or to deliver or offer products or services to you. For example, PII will be used to process credit and other payments.  We, or our Service Partners may also collect PII and/or Aggregate Information to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our Site and to gather demographic information.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.

Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities. In such cases, we will disclose PII upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to otherwise cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal or inappropriate activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.
