WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE GATHER FROM THOSE WHO VISIT OUR SITE?
When you visit our web site, you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose, and information that we automatically collect as you browse our web site.
Information You Voluntarily Submit. We collect and store any information you enter on our web site or provide to us in offline contacts we have with you. Information is collected from visitors to the web site in the following areas:
REGISTRATION FORMS - You may register for electronic newsletters and to attend seminars and/or webcasts on various areas of the web site. This information will generally contain contact information and preferences regarding the event or material for which you desire to register.

EMAIL - On every screen of our site you have an opportunity to communicate with us by e-mail. You may also choose to provide your e-mail address to receive communications from us.
Information Collected and Stored Automatically. When you browse our web site, you do so anonymously. We do automatically log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer), the web pages you visit and the time of your visit, but we do not link this information to anything that could identify you personally. The only other type of information automatically provided to us is the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your browser, which we use to improve the performance of our site.
We may also place small data files, called "cookies," in the browser file of your computer's hard drive. These cookies automatically identify your browser to our server whenever you interact with the web site. We use the cookies to record web site statistics. Most browsers automatically accept the cookies, but you usually can change your browser setting to prevent the acceptance of cookies. Certain web pages may not function properly if you choose not to accept cookies.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE WITH US ABOUT YOUR SPECIFIC LEGAL ISSUE, EVEN IN AN EMERGENCY, THROUGH THIS WEB SITE. WE DO NOT MONITOR YOUR COMMUNICATIONS TO US THROUGH THIS WEB SITE FOR THESE PURPOSES AND WE WILL NOT RESPOND TO YOUR COMMUNICATION.
HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Information You Voluntarily Submit. We use your personal information to process your information requests. Unless otherwise noted, this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent. We may also communicate with you, if and when necessary, in connection with your use of our web site, to respond to your questions, or to send you material and information you request. Be assured that we do not create individual profiles with the e-mail information you provide, nor will it be correlated or linked to the material that is automatically collected as described above. We will use your information to:
- Process your request for materials if you make one
- Possibly respond directly to you for clarification
- Register you for a newsletter or to attend a seminar and/or webcast, if you request it
- Provide you with information regarding new services and general information about our services. (NOTE: You may elect not to receive these communications, either when you initially register at our site, or at any time thereafter. See the section of this Privacy Statement called "Choice/Opt Out.")
Information Collected and Stored Automatically. We may use your web site information to help diagnose problems with our site. We may use all information we collect to analyze statistical use patterns and demographic data (basically, where our visitors come from and what demographic characteristics they have) and to improve our site to better serve our customers. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our web site. Your IP address is used to help identify you as a new or returning visitor and to gather broad demographic information. We may also prepare and keep statistical records and other data about you and other users of our site, but we do that in a way that does not identify you or any other user personally. We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data, and we may share such statistical data with third parties. Again, such statistical data will not specifically identify you or any other user. We use this information to help us make our web site more useful to visitors - to learn about the number of visitors to our web site, what part of the web site they are interested in, how long they use the web site, and the types of technology our visitors use.
DISCLOSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO OTHERS
Except in the limited circumstances stated in this paragraph, we do not sell, rent, license, trade or otherwise disclose the personal information of our web site visitors to unaffiliated third parties. We may share such information among our affiliates as necessary to provide you with the information and services you request. We may disclose information about you if and when we believe it is necessary to comply with any law, rule, court order, or subpoena, or to enforce our legal rights or the rules of this web site, or to protect our business, property and operations, or in connection with a sale, acquisition, merger or other business combination of our business with a third party.
Some areas of the web site may allow you to conduct e-commerce transactions (such as registration or a product or service request). In connection with these transactions, we collect data necessary to complete the transaction. This information may be furnished to a third party in order to facilitate the transaction.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Since we are committed to your privacy and security, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. We will maintain and upgrade our security measures by implementing improved technologies as we deem reasonably necessary to maintain the foregoing procedures. However, please remember that no transmission of data over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us or from us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use our best efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
