I. Collection of Information

1. Information You Provide to Us

We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, you share information directly with us when you fill out a form, communicate with us via third-party platforms, request customer service and support, register for our events and webinars, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include:

  • Contact information, such as your name, job title, phone number, organization or employer, the state and country where you or your organization is located, job title, work sector, physical address, and e-mail address;
  • Comments, questions, and requests you may make; 
  • Information about your preferences, such as your preferred methods of communication and the types of information in which you are interested; 
  • Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses and phone numbers), if you contact us; and 
  • Any other information you voluntarily provide.

2. Information We Collect Automatically When You Interact with Us

Like most online services, we automatically receive standard technical information when you use the Website. We collect this information through browser cookies, pixel tags, web server logs, web beacons, embedded scripts, and similar technologies. These features enable us to personalize your experience using our Website, understand how you use it, and improve and further develop our Services. We collect this information as follows:

a) Device and Usage Information

We collect information about how you access our Website, including data about the device and network you use, such as your hardware model, operating system version, mobile network, IP address, unique device identifiers, and browser type. We also collect information about your activity on our Website, such as access times, pages viewed, links clicked, and the page you visited before navigating to our Website. Like most standard website servers we also use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are tied to personally identifiable information to enable our web-based service.

b) Information Collected by Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies

We (and those who perform work for us) use tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, and embedded scripts, to collect information about you. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our Website and your experience, see which areas and features of our Website are popular, and count visits. Specifically, we use cookies to authenticate users, personalize your experience when using the Website, analyze which features of the Website you use most frequently, and measure and optimize advertising and promotional effectiveness. To do this, we may use both session cookies, which expire once you close your web browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your computer until you delete them. If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your internet browser’s documentation for information on how to do this. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, certain features of the Website may not be fully available.

Web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are electronic images that we use on our Website and in our emails to help deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage and campaign effectiveness. 

An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Website, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Website, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

c) Geolocation information

We may automatically collect geolocation information from your device, your wireless carrier, or certain third-party service providers (“Geolocation Information”). You may control the collection of Geolocation Information through the user settings on your device. You may decline to allow us to collect such Geolocation Information, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you. 

3. Information We Collect from Other Sources

We obtain information from other sources. For example, we may collect information about you from webinar hosting providers, tradeshow conferences, and advertising partners.

We may collect information from users and visitors of other sites on which you have interacted with us. We will do so in accordance with the terms of use and privacy policies of those sites and applicable law. This includes our social media pages on places like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube. For example, we may collect the information you shared on our social media pages through an application or form, which will have a link to this Privacy Policy. We may also receive personal information when you comment on our social media advertisements, post comments about us, or tag us in a public-facing social media post. 

Personal information may also be collected by the third-party social media sites that host our social media pages. These sites may provide aggregate information and analysis to us about visitors’ use of our social media pages. This allows us to better understand and analyze our user growth, general demographic information about the users of these pages, and interaction with the content that we post. Overall, this information may be used to help us understand the types of visitors and users of our social media pages and use of the content. This Privacy Policy does not cover personal information collected by such third-party social media sites. For more information on their privacy and security practices please review the privacy policies and terms of use on their respective websites.

4. Information we Collect Through Third-Party Data and Analytics Providers

We engage others (including Google Analytics) to provide analytics services and serve advertisements across the web and in mobile apps. These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other technologies to collect information about your use of our Website and other websites and applications, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in mobile apps, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used by Honorlock and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, deliver advertising and content targeted to your interests on other websites, and better understand your online activity. These third-party services may also provide us with information based on inferences to better understand our users (see below). The information used by such services is usually at the aggregate level, but may contain identifiable personal information.
