When you subscribe, register, participate in conferences or webinars, use online applications, or participate in social networking or surveys, we collect and store personally identifiable information from you that may include your name, postal and e-mail addresses, company, job title, job responsibilities and phone and fax numbers.

No information is ever disclosed to a third-party.

Information from Third Parties. We may from time to time obtain data about you from third-parties. If you use your login credentials from a social networking site (“SNS”) to use a PPMP Product, we may receive information from a SNS in accordance with the terms and conditions of the SNS.  We may use any data from a third party to include you in our database(s) or append it to existing user data to add more detail to the information we have about you.

We may log Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We use this information in an aggregate fashion to track access to the Web site. Our email alerts utilize tracking technology that allows us to see how many newsletter e-mails are opened and the e-mail address of users who have clicked on a given story, feature or advertisement. We use this information for internal purposes to measure the aggregate number of people who view a given newsletter item.

Other Disclosures of Your Information.
