1. What information do we collect from you?
In order to provide you with various services on our Site, we collect two types of information about our users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that allows us to know who you are. When you engage in an activity or submit a request for Site content from our site, such as, for example, downloading a Top 10 Report, white paper, or software demo, we will ask you to provide information that identifies you. It is completely optional for you to engage in those activities. If you choose to engage in a particular activity on our Site, we will ask that you provide limited personal information which may include your first and last name, work email address, telephone number, name of your company, country location and your interest in particular products or services.
Non-Personally Identifiable 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 in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Web site’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”) that you just came from, which URL you go to next, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. An URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (“TCP/IP”) network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet. Even if you don’t register at our Site, we will still collect your Non-Personally Identifiable Information upon your visit to our Site.
2. Where do we collect information from you and how do we use it?
We collect Personally Identifiable Information about you when you voluntarily provide us with your Personally Identifiable Information to participate in online activities on our Site.
In addition, we may also collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. We may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our site and to gather demographic information.
3. With whom do we share your information?
We may share or transfer your Personally Identifiable Information in connection with, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business to another company.
We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with our affiliates. Affiliates may include our parent company and any other subsidiaries, joint venture partners or other companies that we control or that are under common control with us.
We may share your Personally Identifiable Information to third-party sponsors or vendors for commercial purposes. When you choose to engage in an online activity on our Site by providing your Personally Identifiable Information, you are giving us your express consent for us to share your Personal Identifiable Information with certain third-party sponsors or vendors with products or services targeted to your interest from the online activity of your choice. The sharing of your Personally Identifiable Information may result in follow-up communications from those third- party sponsors or vendors regarding their products or services for marketing or promotional purposes.
Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. We will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

We implement reasonable security procedures intended to reduce the risk of accidental destruction or loss, or the unauthorized disclosure of or access to your Personally Identifiable Information reasonably appropriate to the level of the data concerned. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

6. Do we use “cookies”?
When you use our site we will store cookies on your computer in order to facilitate and customize your use of our site. A cookie is a small data text file, which a Web site stores on your computer’s hard drive (if your Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. Our cookies store randomly assigned user identification numbers, the country where you are located, and your first name to welcome you back to our site. The cookies make your use of the site easier, make the site run more smoothly and help us to maintain a secure site. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site may not work properly in that case.
We may use an outside ad serving company to display banner advertisements on our site. As part of their service, they will place a separate cookie on your computer. We will not provide any third-party ad server with any of your Personally Identifiable Information or information about your purchases, if provided by Site. We and our third party ad server may collect and use Non- Personally Identifiable Information about you, such as your IP address, browser type, the server your computer is logged onto, the area code and zip code associated with your server and whether you responded to a particular ad.
