We collect information from visitors to the Site and from those who create an account, purchase a subscription, or otherwise use or access the Services. The nature and type of information We collect from You depends on the type of service, support, or sale inquiry or other interaction We have with You. We collect some information by commonly used automatic information gathering tools, such as “cookies” and/or web beacons. We also collect information that You deliberately provide to Us, such as information that You provide when setting up an account, purchasing a subscription, or communicating with Us regarding a Service request. Examples of types of information that We may collect from You are identified below.

Identification and Contact Information. We may collect identification and contact information from You, including Your personal and company name, street address, telephone number, fax number, email address, or other contact information.

We may collect information regarding Your use of the Site, the Services that You request or show an interest in, or that We provide to You, including the type, nature, amount, time, and dates of Services or subscriptions that You request, purchase, or inquire about, or that We offer, provide, or deny to You.

Automatic Data Collection Tools

We employ commonly-used automatic data collection tools, which may include cookies, browser storage, and web beacons, which gather data from visitors to the Site, in order to improve user experience and better understand how visitors use the Site. A cookie is a small text file, which is stored on Your computer, phone, or other computing device (“Device”) by the Site in order to recognize Your Device at recurring visits. A cookie may transmit information via Your browser with a purpose of authenticating or identifying the Device (via, e.g., the IP address) or the user. Cookies may contain information such as registration data and user preferences. When a server receives a request from a Device that stores a cookie from the Site, the server is able to use the information stored in the cookie in combination with the information stored on the server. Browser storage enables You to store data regarding the Site and Your use of the Site in a browser on Your Device. When used in “local storage” mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data are retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened). A web beacon is an electronic file that signals when a webpage, advertisement, video, other content, an email, or a newsletter has been viewed. When using the Site, third parties (e.g., Google Analytics) may collect personally identifiable information about Your online activities over time and across different Web sites.

Your web browser may allow You reject and/or delete some of the automatic data collection tools that We employ through the Site. However, this may degrade the functionality and/or performance of the Site and/or Services. We do not currently modify any data collection activities based on the presence or absence of any “do not track” signal from a user’s web browser.
