SECURITY

We respect the privacy and security of your personal information.  We have implemented commercially-reasonable measures that are intended to keep your personal information safe from unintended disclosure.  Despite our efforts, however, factors beyond our reasonable control, such as a malicious attack by sophisticated hackers, could result in disclosure of your personal information.  Accordingly, we are not in a position to guarantee that your information will be secure under all circumstances and we can offer no warranties or representations with regard to the maintenance or non-disclosure of your information.

You must immediately notify us if you have any suspicion that an unauthorized party is accessing your Subscriber information.  We will never ask for your personal information in an unsolicited phone call, email message, or other communication.  If someone claiming to be us calls you or sends you an email message requesting your personal information, that person is not authorized by us to do so, and you should decline to disclose the information and then contact us immediately.  You are solely responsible for all activity, whether or not authorized by you, which occurs in connection with your activities as a Subscriber.

We collect non-personally identifiable information from Users of the Website.  In order to provide a responsive and useful service, when you visit our Website, we collect certain non-personally identifiable information including the name of your Internet service provider, your IP address, the website from which you came to our Website, the web pages you visit within our Website, the time and length of your visit, and other information important to our marketing analysis and research.  We may use active components (for example, JavaScript components) to collect aggregate information about the preferences of our visitors and optimize our Website accordingly.  We may collect this non-personally identifiable information without providing further notice to you.  

We may use cookies and other tools to collect and store your preferences, usage habits, and record session information.  A "cookie" is a small data file that is transferred to your hard drive and used for record-keeping purposes.  A cookie file can collect information such as the URL, computer IP address, domain type, browser type, the country, state, and telephone area code where your server is located, the pages of the Website viewed, and any search terms entered on the Website.  Cookies and similar tools allow us and third parties to collect information about a user’s online activities over time and across different websites.  These cookies allow us to customize the Website content to your preferences, profile, and/or demographic information.  As technology changes, the use and function of cookies may change, and they may be replaced by other technologies.  You may configure your internet browser or other settings to accept or reject all or some cookies, or notify you when a cookie is sent; however, you may be required to set your browser to enable cookies from us in order to use some functions on the Website.  Even if your browser's settings are set to send “do not track” signals or other mechanisms to prevent tracking by cookies and similar tools, we may collect information about you and your activity.  
 

INFORMATION WE COLLECT — INQUIRIES

In addition to the information we collect from all Users, we collect both personally identifiable information and other information that is not personally identifiable from those who submit their information to use using the form on the webpage captioned "Contact Us."  Those persons are asked to give us personally identifiable information such as name, geographic location, telephone number, company name, and other information.  It is your option to provide the information requested.

We also collect personally identifiable information and other information that is not personally identifiable from those who choose to participate in our online survey via registration as a Subscriber.  Those persons are asked a series of general questions including their company, their industry, their job description and responsibilities, their security needs and preferences, and other questions.  It is your option to become a Subscriber and participate in any online surveys.
