Revised April 15, 2018
At Officeinsight, we collect different types of information about our users for four main reasons:
- To provide personalized services unique to individual users.
- To help us to monitor and improve the services we offer.
- To sell advertising space on the site.
- If we have permission from the user, or where otherwise allowed by law, to market services to them.
There may be other privacy policies that apply to certain services we provide. Please read these when you register or subscribe for these services on the Site.
Information We Collect
When you visit the Site, server logs may capture non-personal information such as your IP address, browser, and operating system. Officeinsight may also capture additional information such as the paths taken as you move from page to page on the website, video statistics, downloads, browser usage, actions you perform, and devices used for access.
To the extent you fill in forms, login, or otherwise provide personal information to the Site, we retain and use that information. (See additional details regarding personal information below.)
When you email to Officeinsight, we may use your email address to contact you regarding the subject of your email, including your comments or to reply to your inquiries. We store your email and our reply if we need to continue corresponding. When you request information, we use your email address and any other information you voluntarily disclose to provide you with the information related to your request. Recurring communications we distribute contain the ability to unsubscribe by using the “unsubscribe” instructions provided within each email. Certain onetime responses may not contain the “unsubscribe” instructions because of their onetime nature.
When you post content or use our forums, blogs, and other website community features, your name (or user name, if applicable) and profile information is available to others. If you post this information, we want you to know that other users of these areas or the public may capture, modify, transmit and otherwise use this information for their purposes. We are not responsible for the information you submit to these areas.
Officeinsight only collects personal information you provide voluntarily. While you can browse our Site without providing personal information, you must input certain personal information as indicated on specific pages of our Site to take advantage of certain features.
“Personal information” that we collect includes information that can identify you, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, log-in information and credit/debit card information.
A visit to a page on the Site may generate these types of cookie:
- Site performance cookies
- Anonymous analytics cookies
- Geotargeting cookies
- Registration cookies
- Advertising cookies
- Third party advertising cookies
Site performance cookies
This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the Site, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:
– Volume settings for our video player
– Whether you see the latest or the oldest article comments first
– Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser
Anonymous analytics cookies:
Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organization generates an “anonymous analytics cookie”.
These cookies can tell us whether you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Unless you are signed in to the Site, we cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.
These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content – such as whether you see our US or other home page – and advertising.
When you register with the Site, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not.
Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post with your username.
If you have not selected “keep me signed in”, your cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer.
While you are signed into the Site, we combine information from your registration cookies with analytics cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen on the Site.
These cookies allow us to know whether you’ve seen an advertisement and how long it is since you’ve seen it.
We also set anonymous cookies on certain other sites we advertise on. If you receive one of those cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit the Site. We can then target our advertising based on this information.
Third party advertising cookies
A lot of the advertisements you see on the Site are provided by other organizations. Some organizations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen an ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These organizations may use their cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to the Site.
Other third-party cookies
On some pages of our Site, other organizations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customize the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organization access the data in cookies we use on our website.
For example, when you share an article using a social-media sharing button (for example, Facebook) on the Site, the social network that has created the button will record you have done this.
How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you could not post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser, or you can use the Help option in your browser for more details.
Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data
As required by the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) Article 6, we advise that the legal basis for Officeinsight collecting, processing and storing a user’s data is either by user consent or the data is required for the performance of a contract.
Transferring, Processing and Storing Personal Information
Officeinsight may transfer your personal information elsewhere in the United States or worldwide to process or storage. Your personal information may be transferred and stored outside of your country of residence where data protection standards may be different.
Users of the Site who are residents of the European Union have the right to make a “subject access request” to inquire what information about them is stored.
If Officeinsight is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your personal information, anonymous or aggregated information we collected from or about you, and any other information we have collected on our websites may be transferred to an acquiring third party as part of our business assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered one of our assets and may be sold or transferred to third parties.
Legal Obligations to Disclose Personal Information
While we do not anticipate such requests, we may have to share your personal information with third parties if required to do so by law.
Because we hold the security of your personal information with high importance, we take reasonable steps to protect the information we collect. While we cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information, we and our vendors use firewalls and employ many security techniques to protect against data loss, misuse, alteration and unauthorized access.
