Even if you do not use our site as a member or to search documents, you may still provide us information. For example, when you use the “Contact us” form on the Site or request a quote from us on the Site, we collect any personal information you submit, such as your name, e-mail address and other details that you submit to us in any message. We may use links throughout the Site to provide you with the opportunity to contact us via e-mail to ask questions, request information and materials, or provide comments and suggestions.

Traffic data is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as an identifiable person, we will treat it as personal information.
For members, we track information about the documents you upload and post to the Site. As part of the offering, we associate the member with the document so this information will not remain anonymous. Your name and other limited biographical information (such as job title or organization) may be made public on the Site. Technologies we use on the Site to collect traffic data may include cookies (data files placed on your computer or other devices used to access the Site), mobile analytics software and pixel tags (transparent graphic image, sometimes called a web beacon or tracking beacon, placed on a web page or in an e-mail, which indicates that a page or e-mail has been viewed). We may utilize a short-lived form of cookie when you visit the Site. A cookie is used to identify one unique visitor from another visitor during a particular session. A session is the period of active Site-use while that unique visitor is linked to our server. We may use cookie technology during a session as a tool to carry forward your input information. This enables the visitor to input their information once and have the information appear later. No personal information is stored on the cookie. A pixel tag may tell your browser to get content from another server. We, or our vendors, may place cookies or similar files on your computer or other devices used to access the Site for security purposes, to facilitate Site navigation and to personalize your experience while visiting the Site. To learn how you may be able to reduce the number of cookies you receive from us, or delete cookies that have already been installed in your browser’s cookie folder, please refer to your browser’s help menu or other instructions related to your browser.

Do Not Track Requests; Third Party Tracking. Unless your browser settings are configured to make your online activities and information about your online activities (such as traffic data as described above) invisible to usage analytics tools, we do not presently have the capability to omit you from usage analytics to the extent your browser only sends us a “do not track” message and does not otherwise screen you from tracking without any action on our part. Third parties, other than our vendors (such as our website analytics provider), do not have authorization from us to track which websites you visited prior to and after visiting the Site. Please note, however, that we cannot control third party tracking and there may be some third party tracking that occurs without our knowledge or consent.
