Information That We Collect Automatically

When you use our websites, we may collect certain information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, web server logs, tracking pixels and JavaScript.

The technologies we use on our websites may log information such as your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located.  The logs may also record information such as the address of the web page that referred you to our website and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.  They may also log information about your interaction with the websites, such as which pages you visit.  Our websites collect information by automated means by placing tags called “tracking pixels” — small files that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies.  We use this information in conjunction with data gathered from forms and emails to help us understand and respond to your needs.

 Social Media Widgets

The websites may include social media functions, such as the Blog, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook widgets. These widgets collect information about which pages you visit on the websites and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.  The widgets may also set a cookie to ensure the features are functioning properly.

Social media functions and widgets are hosted either by a third party or directly on the websites.  Your interactions with the social media functions and widgets located on the websites are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.  If you use any of the social media functions or widgets on our Sites, we strongly suggest you review the privacy policies of the companies that provide those functions and features.

LinkedIn

If you are a LinkedIn member and you visit our websites from LinkedIn, our websites may use tracking pixels — transparent graphic images placed on web pages — which, in combination with cookies, collect information contained within your LinkedIn profile as well as your access of and interaction with the web pages that contain the pixels.

Third Party Web Analytics Services

We use third-party web analytics services on our websites, including Google Analytics and Salesforce Pardot.  These service providers help us analyze how users use our websites.  The information collected for this purpose (including IP addresses and other information collected by automated means) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these services.  To learn more about these third-party web analytic service provider activities, please go to the relevant sites.

Salesforce Pardot is a web marketing automation software suite.  We use Pardot’s suite to gather information about visitors to our websites.  Personal data is stored in Pardot if you complete a form, such as for registration to events, contact/request forms or for subscription to our email communications.  Information such as IP address, operating system, web browser, and pages visited is gathered by Pardot.  Pardot’s privacy policy is available here.

Google Analytics tracks your interaction with our websites and stores non-personal data about the IP address, operating system, web browser, and pages visited.  Also collected is information about your demographics, the device used, and where the visit originated.  Google Cookie and Privacy Policy is available here.

We use a third party service provider to collect information from job applicants.  Information collected includes name, address, email address, phone number, and other information to evaluate the applicant’s credentials and authorization to work.  As part of their contractual obligations, such third party service providers are not permitted to use the personal data for purposes other than fulfilling those services or to further disclose your personal data.
