A. THE TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
 

We collect your Personal Information when you provide it to us. “Personal information” is any information that can be used to identify you or that we can link to you. We may automatically collect certain information when you use, access, or interact with our Platforms. And we may collect information from other sources, such as social media platforms that may share information about how you interact with our social media content.

 

  1. Information you provide to us.  We collect information that you provide to us, including when you communicate with us via email or other channels, including social media; when you sign up for or request that we send you newsletters, alerts, or other materials; when you sign up for a webinar or event; when you respond to our communications or requests for information; when you license or purchase any of our Products or Services; when you provide camera access; video and streaming information. The information you provide may include, but is not limited to your name, your business name, contact information (including both home and work), title, email address, telephone number, and other information about yourself.  Some of our Platforms may require that you enter a password or other information in order to access certain features, and we collect such credentials when you enter them.  If you purchase or license any of our Products or Services, we will also collect credit card information.  We may also collect information if you provide it to us through the use of forms that you download from our Platforms, complete and send in to us.
     

  2. Information we may collect automatically.  We use browser cookies and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies”) to collect and store certain information when you use, access, or interact with our Platforms. We may use pixels to track usage.  We may, for example, collect information about the type of device you use to access the Platforms, the operating system and version, your IP address, your general geographic location as indicated by your IP address, your browser type, the content you view and features you access on the Platforms, the web pages you view immediately before and after you access the Platforms, whether and how you interact with content available on the Platforms, and the search terms you enter on the Platforms. 

    Please note that we do not currently respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that may allow you to opt out of the collection of information across networks of websites and online services as there is no standard for how online services should respond to such signals. As standards develop, we may, but do not guarantee that we will, develop policies for responding to do-not-track signals that we will describe in this Policy.
     

  3. Information we collect from other sources.  We may receive information about you from other sources, including third parties that help us: update, expand, and analyze our records; identify new customers; or prevent or detect fraud. We may also receive information about you from social media platforms including but not limited to when you interact with us on those platforms or access our social media content. The information we may receive is governed by the privacy settings, policies, and/or procedures of the applicable social media platform, and we encourage you to review them.
     

  4. Precise location information. When you access the Platforms via a mobile device or other location-enabled method, we may collect precise location information if you permit the Platforms to access such information. We may use this information to provide you with content based on your location.
