Information about website visits
We may collect information about your computer and your visits to our group websites such as your IP address, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information in the administration of our group websites, to improve the group website’s usability, and for marketing purposes.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.)

Information You Voluntarily Provide
If you provide us with personally identifiable information, for example by sending an e-mail or by filling out a form and submitting it through our website, we use that information to respond to your message, to help us provide you with the information and services you request, as well as provide you with relevant information in the future.
We do not collect or use information gathered for third party marketing.
Publicly available information
We may gather publicly available information about you (on websites such as Linkedin, Facebook, phone directories etc.) which will assist us in enhancing the knowledge profile. We may combine this information with other data that we collect, and use such combined data for our commercial purposes.
How We Use Information
We use any information that we receive in order to provide our clients with our services. In addition, we use the information we collect for a variety of purposes (e.g., to respond to requests for information about our products and services analytics, marketing strategies, product development etc). We may use any information that you provide or that we collect to provide you with promotional messages in which we believe that you will be interested. You can remove your personal information from our mailing list and stop receiving future communication from us by following the unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each communication or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that we reserve the right to send you service related communications, including service announcements and administrative messages, relating either to your account or to your transactions on this site, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them unless you cancel your account.
By analyzing all information we receive, we may compile statistical information across a variety of users (“Statistical Information”).

We will share Statistical Information with our partners, pursuant to commercial terms that we determine in our sole discretion.
Retention of Information
Data gathered on our system is maintained in a secure environment for an unlimited period of time, and is not shared with third parties outside of our group, provided however that information collected on behalf of our clients will be shared with the clients.

We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We also distribute news releases and other targeted information through Constant Contact, and any member of the public has the option to subscribe. Constant Contact allows subscribers to manage which updates they receive, and to easily unsubscribe.
Security of your personal data

For example, we may send your information to any countries outside the United States or the European Economic Area. All our subcontractors will be subject to non-disclosure and non-use obligations. Nevertheless, some countries may have levels of protection of personal and other information which are not as high as in your country of residence or business.
We may disclose or transfer data and information in connection with a sale of all or part of our business, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets. By providing such information, you expressly consent to such transfer and use, including transfers outside of the country of your residence.
