The Information We Collect About You
We may collect information about you directly from you and from third parties, as well as automatically through your use of our Website or Services. The type of information that we collect about you varies based on your interaction with our Website and our Services.
As part of your user profile, you may (but are not required) to submit additional information, including, for example, your picture, a “headline” describing you, name, country, city, state, industry, job type, department, expertise, or other demographic data.
When you post a review, you have the option to mark it “Anonymous.” If you do so, then other users will see your role, department, industry, and the size of your company. You may update your choice at any time, but please note that third parties and other users of the Website already may have had access to your review and that there might be cached copies and static content of the Website. As such, complete copies of your review may exist even if we make your review Anonymous on our Website. Please note that you will need to exercise your choice for each review that you post.

Disabling Cookies. Our Website will not function properly without cookies enabled. At a minimum, session cookies must be allowed in order to preserve your identity as you navigate the Website. If you wish, you can logoff from the Website once you are done and then delete any persistent cookies that remain.
Web Beacons, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies. We use web beacons, such as clear GIFs, web bugs or pixel tags, which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs in connection with our Website to, among other things, track the activities of website visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about website usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, measure the success of our marketing campaigns, identify when our e-mails are viewed and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
Third Party Analytics
We use automated devices and applications to evaluate usage of our Website. We also may use other analytic means to evaluate our Services. We use these tools to help us improve our Services, performance and user experiences. We may combine this information with other information we collect from our users.
Do Not Track
Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt-out of targeted advertising by contacting us directly by email.
Third-Party Ad Networks
Our Website and Services may contain links to third-party websites. For example, occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our Website.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

You may log into your account at any time to update your profile information. Please note that copies of information that you have updated, modified or deleted may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Website for a period of time and may have been shared with third parties prior to your update, modification, or deletion of the information.
