When you use our website or services, we collect certain information that is automatically generated by the fact that your browser is communicating with our server, such as:   your internet protocol address, browser type and version, device type and version (i.e. mobile device, mobile operating system), browser capability (i.e. whether it is touch capable, screen size, whether it can perform certain actions), from which site you were referred, and to which site or page you then visit, and other similar information generated by the communication between your computer and our server (collectively “Meta Data”).

Cookies
We use “cookies” on some pages of our site to track what pages you have visited, and to measure your activity on our sites and services.   A cookie is a small file stored on your device that contains a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. A cookie can be used to store information such as a unique identifier related to your browser session so that we can detect whether you are logged in, whether you have returned to our site or service, and it can make your experience on the site or service more customized.   A cookie can contain any information, although we do not use it to store any sensitive information such as your password.   You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies or notify you when a cookie is set. If you set your browser to turn off cookies, your access to some areas of our site might be limited or not function correctly.

Third party tools and automated data collection
Our website and services use tools and functionality provided by third parties described below, which collect certain information about your use of our site and services:

Social Media
We provide links to our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube pages (“Social Media Sites”), which are pages hosted on those respective services which we do not control.  When you click on those links, we retain information that you have clicked on those links, and then when you arrive on those pages at the applicable Social Media Site, those services may track your activity that was referred from us.  We are able to track your use of our pages on those Social Media Sites.  These Social Media Sites may allow you to post comments or submit content for others to see, or to communicate with us.  Sometimes you might be able to limit who can see what you share, but some of the Social Media Sites either limit your ability to restrict access, or allow access to the general public or other members, of that Social Media Site. To remove content you have shared on these Social Media Sites, please consult with the Social Media Site documentation.  WE DO NOT CONTROL THE DATA COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE POLICIES OF SOCIAL MEDIA SITES.  If you choose to use Social Media Sites, please review their privacy policies. If you do not agree with their policies, please do not use those Social Media Sites.

Customer relationship management tools
We currently use the following third-party customer engagement, relationship and management tools:

adroll.com – provides targeted advertising and marketing services which permits us to more effectively determine your needs and get you faster more accurate responses.

googletagmanager.com, google.com and doubleclick.net – allows us to easily tag pages and resources to track what pages you have visited both on our site, and on our social media pages listed above.

marketo.net – a service that allows us to track user preferences through communications with us, such as by email, messaging services and mobile engagement

The above tools (collectively, the “Customer Engagement Tools”) include scripts and other technology that allows us to track your use of our services, sites and content.  Each of the Customer Engagement Tools collects certain automated data about you based on your visit to our sites and services and to pages we manage on the Social Media Sites.
