Personally Identifiable Information
Throughout our website, you will have opportunities to submit personally identifiable information to us voluntarily. For example, we collect the personally identifiable information you provide us if you subscribe to any of our publications. You might also choose to provide personally identifiable information by submitting a resume or through contacting us through an email link on our website. The personally identifiable information that you provide to us may include, for example, your name, business, position, email address, physical address and phone number. You may also browse our website without sharing any personally identifiable information.
Where Your Personally Identifiable Information Is Stored
Our website resides on computers located in the United States. Your personally identifiable information will be used and stored in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may differ from those in other parts of the world.
How We Use Your Personally Identifiable Information
We respect your privacy and are committed to using responsible practices in the use of your personally identifiable information. If you choose to submit Personally Identifiable Information to us, we will use the information for the purpose you requested. We do not sell or share your personally identifiable information to third parties.
If you choose to correspond with us by email or other methods, we may retain such correspondence and the information contained within it and use it to respond to your inquiry.
We may also keep your information and use it to provide you with additional information in the future that we deem to be of interest to you. If you do not wish us to use your personally identifiable information in this manner, please do not submit it to us.
We may disclose personally identifiable information about you if we believe in good faith that the law requires it (such as a subpoena, court order or a law enforcement request), or if we reasonably believe it is necessary to protect our legal interests.
How Long We Keep Your Personally Identifiable Information
This depends on whether you or your company or organization are an existing client, have responded to recent mailings or bulletins or have attended recent events. Unless you request us to delete your personally identifiable information, you may reasonably expect us to retain it as long as we have an ongoing relationship with you.
Laws may require us to hold certain personally identifiable information for specific periods. Again, if you do not wish us to handle your personally identifiable information in this manner, please do not submit it to us.

The data Google tracks for us does not identify you personally.
