  1. Infor­ma­tion Collected Auto­mat­i­cally — Cookies

Like many websites, we and our third-party service providers, such as adver­tis­ing and analyt­ics providers, use cookies, web beacons and other data tech­nolo­gies to receive and store certain types of infor­ma­tion when you inter­act with us through your computer or mobile device.  Using these tech­nolo­gies helps us recog­nize you, customize your expe­ri­ence and make rele­vant market­ing messages.  Here are some of the types of infor­ma­tion we collect and the types of Cookies we use to do it:

  • Strictly Neces­sary Cookies:  These are cookies without which you would not be able to use this Site. For example, Strictly Neces­sary Cookies adjust the Site data trans­mit­ted to match your Inter­net connec­tion, get you to the secure versions of the Site, and help provide services you specif­i­cally request.  If you set your browser to block these cookies, some parts of the Site will not work. Strictly Neces­sary Cookies do not store any Personal Infor­ma­tion.
  • Perfor­mance Cookies: We use these cookies to count visits and traffic sources, to measure and improve Site perfor­mance. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visi­tors move around the site.  Perfor­mance Cookies do not store any Personal Infor­ma­tion. This log data may include your web address you came from or are going to, your device model, oper­at­ing system, browser type, unique device iden­ti­fier, IP address, mobile network carrier, and time zone or loca­tion. Our third-party service providers may provide us infor­ma­tion that tells us how our market­ing ads, often placed on third party sites, performed and who clicked on them. This infor­ma­tion does not iden­tify any specific indi­vid­ual and is gener­ally non-iden­ti­fy­ing.  If we were to asso­ciate it with you we would treat it as personal data.  
  • Func­tional cookies: These cookies allow the Site to remem­ber choices you make and provide enhanced func­tion­al­ity and more person­al­ized features. Depend­ing on context, Func­tional Cookies may store certain types of Personal Infor­ma­tion as needed to provide func­tion­al­ity.
  • Target­ing Cookies: Target­ing cookies help us manage and display our adver­tise­ments, based on your activ­ity on the Site and other sites; this is known as inter­est-based adver­tis­ing. Target­ing cookies mainly rely on uniquely iden­ti­fy­ing your browser and inter­net device. To better serve users’ pref­er­ences, we have part­nered with the Digital Adver­tis­ing Alliance (http://youradchoices.com), by visit­ing their website you can learn more about their members who deliver tailored online ads and your choices to opt-out of receiv­ing them. Opting out of inter­est-based adver­tis­ing does not mean you will no longer see adver­tis­ing online, but it does mean that the compa­nies from which you opt out will no longer show ads that have been tailored to your inter­ests.   We work with Termi­nus as a third-party vendor that uses cookies to serve ads on our site. Google’s use of the DoubleClick cookie enables it and its part­ners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our Service or other websites on the Inter­net. You may opt out of the use of the DoubleClick Cookie for inter­est-based adver­tis­ing by visit­ing the Google Ads Settings web page: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/

We specif­i­cally use third party services, Google Analyt­ics, Pardot, Adobe Audi­ence Manager, and Adobe Analyt­ics, to collect stan­dard inter­net log infor­ma­tion, details of visitor behav­ior patterns, and, in some cases, to more effec­tively market our prod­ucts and services through other media plat­forms and channel. We do this to find out things such as the number of visi­tors to the various parts of the site. If you would like to opt-out of these 3rd party services, please follow these links :

  1. How We Use Your Personal Infor­ma­tion and Other Data

We will make it clear when we collect personal infor­ma­tion and will explain what we intend to do with it. We may use the infor­ma­tion we collect about you for various purposes, includ­ing:

  1. Lawful Basis of Process­ing

We may process your data based on one of three main legal grounds: (1) our legit­i­mate interests/provide services; (2) any contract between you and us; and (3) your consent. 

 

  • Provide Services: To provide you with infor­ma­tion requested from us relat­ing to our prod­ucts or services and to provide infor­ma­tion on other prod­ucts which we feel may be of inter­est to you if you have consented to receive such infor­ma­tion, which are legit­i­mate busi­ness inter­ests. To notify you about any changes to our Website, such as improve­ments or service/product changes, that may affect our service. If you are an exist­ing customer, we may contact you with infor­ma­tion about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previ­ous sale to you. If you do not provide the data that we request, or prohibit us from collect­ing such data, we may not be able to provide the requested Services.
  • Perfor­mance of Contract: We will use Personal Data and Other Data to commu­ni­cate with you with your consent, to manage our contrac­tual rela­tion­ship with you and/or because we have a legit­i­mate inter­est to do so.
  • User Consent: If you are a new customer, we will only contact you or allow third parties to contact you only when you have provided consent and only by those means you provided consent for. We may use your data, or permit selected third parties to use your data, so that you can be provided with infor­ma­tion about unre­lated goods and services which we consider may be of inter­est to you. We or they may contact you about these goods and services by any of the methods that you consented to at the time your infor­ma­tion was collected. If you do not want us to use your data for ourselves or third-parties, you will have the oppor­tu­nity to with­hold your consent to this when you provide your details to us on the form on which we collect your data.
  • Please be advised that we do not reveal infor­ma­tion about iden­ti­fi­able indi­vid­u­als to our adver­tis­ers, but we may, on occa­sion, provide them with aggre­gate statis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion about our visi­tors such as your area of resi­dence or age group.
  1. Sharing and Disclo­sure

We do not share your personal infor­ma­tion with others except as indi­cated within this policy or when we inform you and give you an oppor­tu­nity to opt out of having your personal infor­ma­tion shared.

We share your infor­ma­tion in the follow­ing ways.

  • With third party service providers, agents, or contrac­tors.  We use other compa­nies, agents or contrac­tors (“Service Providers”) to perform services on our behalf or to assist us with provid­ing services to you. For example, we may engage Service Providers to process credit card trans­ac­tions or other payment methods.  Or, we may engage Service Providers to provide services such as market­ing, adver­tis­ing, commu­ni­ca­tions, infra­struc­ture and IT services, to provide customer service, to collect debts, and to analyze and enhance data (includ­ing data about users’ inter­ac­tions with our service). These Service Providers may have access to your personal or other infor­ma­tion in order to provide these func­tions. In addi­tion, some of the infor­ma­tion we request may be collected by third party providers on our behalf. We do not autho­rize them to use or disclose your personal infor­ma­tion except in connec­tion with provid­ing their services.
  • Analyt­ics.  Specif­i­cally, for analyt­ics providers, we use Google Analyt­ics and Adobe Analyt­ics.  These are web analyt­ics service offered by Google and Adobe that track and report website traffic. Each uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google and Adobe services. Google may use the collected data to contex­tu­al­ize and person­al­ize the ads of its own adver­tis­ing network. Adobe tracks you across all of your devices and creates websites, apps and ads that are customized for you, across your devices without collect­ing infor­ma­tion that directly iden­ti­fies the indi­vid­ual person.

You can opt-out of having made your activ­ity on the Service avail­able to Google Analyt­ics by installing the Google Analyt­ics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analyt­ics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing infor­ma­tion with Google Analyt­ics about visits activ­ity. For more infor­ma­tion on the privacy prac­tices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/  Google also recom­mends installing the Google Analyt­ics Opt-out Browser Add-on — https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout — for your web browser. Google Analyt­ics Opt-out Browser Add-on provides visi­tors with the ability to prevent their data from being collected and used by Google Analyt­ics.

You can customize and manage what devices are linked to you by Adobe by visit­ing this link or control all your data pref­er­ences with Adobe by visit­ing here.

  • Adver­tis­ing.  We may use third-party Service Providers to show adver­tise­ments, which may include targeted adver­tise­ments on a third-party site after you have visited our website.  We and the third-party service providers use cookies to inform, opti­mize, measure perfor­mance serve ads based on your previ­ous visits to our site.  Any track­ing that a third party performs is subject to their own privacy notice.

Please note at this time, we do not recog­nize auto­mated browser signals regard­ing track­ing mech­a­nisms, which may include “do not track” instruc­tions.

We work with Termi­nus as a third-party vendor, who uses cookies to serve ads on our site. The cookie enables Termi­nus and its part­ners to serve ads to our users based on their visit to our Service or other websites on the Inter­net. You may opt out of the use of their cookie for inter­est-based adver­tis­ing by visit­ing this page.

  • To comply with legal process or to protect us.  If we believe that disclo­sure is reason­ably neces­sary to comply with a law, regu­la­tion, legal or govern­men­tal request; to enforce applic­a­ble terms of use, includ­ing inves­ti­ga­tion of poten­tial viola­tions thereof; to protect the safety, rights, or prop­erty of the public, any person, or Search Discovery, as required by law; or to detect, prevent, or other­wise address, secu­rity or tech­ni­cal issues or illegal or suspected illegal activ­i­ties (includ­ing fraud).
  • Busi­ness Trans­fers. We may engage in a merger, acqui­si­tion, bank­ruptcy, disso­lu­tion, reor­ga­ni­za­tion, or similar trans­ac­tion or proceed­ing that involves the trans­fer of the infor­ma­tion described in this Policy.  In such tran­si­tions, customer infor­ma­tion is typi­cally one of the busi­ness assets that is trans­ferred or acquired by a third party. In the unlikely event that we or substan­tially all of our assets are acquired or enter a court proceed­ing, you acknowl­edge that such trans­fers may occur and that your personal infor­ma­tion can continue to be used as set forth in this privacy policy.
  1. Storing your personal data/Transfer of Data

Search Discovery admin­is­ters and oper­ates the Site from its loca­tion in Atlanta, GA, USA. If you are located in another juris­dic­tion, please know that your infor­ma­tion will be trans­ferred to, stored, and processed in the United States.

For example, such staff may be engaged in the process­ing and conclud­ing of your order, the process­ing of your payment details and the provi­sion of support services. By submit­ting your personal data, you agree to this trans­fer, storing or process­ing. We will take all reason­able steps to make sure that your data is treated securely and in agree­ment with this privacy policy.

  • The trans­mis­sion of infor­ma­tion via the inter­net is not completely secure and there­fore we cannot guar­an­tee the secu­rity of data sent to us elec­tron­i­cally and the trans­mis­sion of such data is entirely at your own risk. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a pass­word so that you can access certain areas of our site, you are respon­si­ble for keeping this pass­word confi­den­tial.

You will need to make your own inde­pen­dent judg­ment regard­ing your inter­ac­tion with these Linked Sites.
