INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
We collect Personal Information from you, such as first and last name, email and mailing addresses, telephone number, professional title, company name, and password. Our site gives users the ability to provide information, or have information provided on their behalf, including personal or confidential information, about the user, its employees and vendors. Examples of Personal Information may include contact information (such as name, email, or postal address), unique identifiers (such as username, password, identification number or social security number), demographic information (such as zip code), compliance information (such as corporate policies or accident reports) and other personal or confidential information. In addition, we (or our third-party credit card or payment processor on our behalf) will collect Personal Information including your credit card number or account information. If you provide us feedback or contact us via email, we will collect your name and email address, IP address, as well as any other content included in the email. If we conduct a survey in which you participate, we may collect additional profile information. Such Personal Information is collected within the Site to verify the user’s identity, allow for database linkage, provide reporting capability, improve our Site, personalize your experience, allow for record keeping and tracking of data, share with other users, for use as account information in our system, and for other similar purposes appropriate to the operation of the Site.
We may share your Personal Information with partner companies to provide technical support or to provide specific services, such as hosting of your applications, maintenance services, database management or payment processing for purchases. Partner companies will have access to your Personal Information only to perform these services on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose. We may transfer Personal Information to companies that help us provide our service. This includes trusted third parties who assist us in operating our websites, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law (such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process), enforce our Site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety. Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
The Site contains links and connections to other sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of such web sites that are not created and maintained by us. Furthermore, we do not intentionally gather Personal Information about visitors who are under the age of 13.
