The Information We Collect and How We Use It
In the course of operating the Website, we collect or otherwise receive the following types of information:
Your contact information collected on our Website varies depending on the webpage but typically includes some combination of your name, email address, contact type, company information (including address), and any information you provide in messages to us. We use such contact information for purposes such as responding to, and following up regarding, your inquiries, providing you with requested information, sending you email alerts (including marketing emails), or reviewing your job application materials. Depending on the nature of your message (e.g., purchase of products), we may route your information to an appropriate third party, such as a distributor, to better address such message.
Like most websites today, we use web servers that keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. These log files are maintained by our website hosting service and contain data about the nature of such access, including the device’s IP address, user agent string (e.g., operating system and browser type/version), and referral URL (i.e., the external source by which you arrived at our Website, or the pages you’ve clicked on while on our Website). We may wish to use these log files for purposes such as monitoring and troubleshooting errors and incidents, analyzing web traffic, or optimizing the user experience.
We collect information using “cookie” technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive (or other storage medium) so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We use both 1st and 3rd-party session cookies and persistent cookies. Below is a general primer on session and persistent cookies; information collected by cookies depends on its particular purpose. For more information, please see the information regarding analytics providers discussed further below.
- Session Cookies: We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our Website. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser.
- Persistent Cookies: A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive (or other storage medium) for an extended period of time or until you delete them. To the extent we provide a log-in portal or related feature on our Website, persistent cookies can be used to store your passwords so that you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track analytics and target the interests of our Visitors to personalize the experience on our Website. In some cases, we may associate information that you have provided to us (e.g., email address) with the cookies that we use. In addition to facilitating the purposes described above, this is useful in understanding your engagement with other content related to our Website (e.g., email open rates, URL clickthroughs). If you do not want us to place any cookies on your device (or any third-party cookies, if you’d like), you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. You may delete cookies manually too. Please consult your browser’s documentation for information on how to do this. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, certain aspects of the Website may not function properly or as intended.

We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services and the Website to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Disclosure to Public Authorities
We are required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including for the purpose of meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
