INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We rely on the information you provide to us as you visit us, contact us, participate in content contribution, surveys, post comments to public areas of and interact with the Sites, respond to our email campaigns, and participate in online events. We may also add data from external sources extracted from third party websites. We will add information about how you interact with our offerings, your subscriptions, the events you attend, the content you download or read, and the like.
We and third-party service providers may use such usage data for a variety of purposes including to diagnose problems with our servers and any software and related services, to administer the services offered on the Sites, to gather demographic information and traffic patterns and to target advertising to you on the Sites and elsewhere online. Accordingly, our third-party advertising networks and ad servers will also provide us with information, including reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked on the Sites in a manner that does not identify personally any specific individual. The usage data we collect is generally non-identifying, but if we associate it with you as a specific and identifiable person, we will treat it as personal information.
If you choose not to submit personally identifiable information when requested, you may not be able to access certain areas of the Sites and you may considerably limit the services we can provide you. However, to simply access the Sites you do not need to give us any personally identifiable information.
We care about the integrity and security of your personal information. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat our security measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. You acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13
The Sites are not directed to children. Streamline does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age you should not use the Sites, and under no circumstances should you send information about yourself to Streamline. If Streamline discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided Streamline with personally identifiable information, Streamline will immediately delete that child’s personally identifiable information from the Sites and preclude the child from further access.
We gather date, time, certain information about a user’s browser and system or device configuration and capabilities, navigation history and IP address for all visitors to the Sites. We use this information for our internal security audit log, for trend analysis and system administration and to gather broad information about our audiences and their geographic locations.
COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
You will know when personally identifiable information is collected because you will be asked to fill out a form. However, we may collect some information about you by using data collection technology while it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to the Sites, your IP address is collected so that we know where to send the information you are requesting. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to enable your computer to communicate on the internet. A “cookie” is a small file or record-keeping device that websites often store on a user’s computer. (You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being created on your computer. If you do so you will not take advantage of the full services of the Sites. To ensure the highest standards of privacy and security, we do not store personally identifiable information within cookies.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We do not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent unless:
- doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request;
- we believe it is needed to enforce the Terms;
- we believe we are required to do so by law or to comply with legal processes;
- we believe it is needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues;
- to protect our property, legal rights, or that of others.
From time to time, we may employ and share your personal information with vendors under our control who use it solely to provide support for the internal operations of the Sites (e.g., technical support and network delivery). These entities will not use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose, and have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us.
THIRD PARTY CONTENT
When you are using the Sites, certain content may be created or hosted by a third party. Such third parties may place cookies and/or use web beacons, which may be used to identify some of your preferences or to recognize you if you have previously had contact with them. We do not control the use of such technology by third parties, the information they collect, or how they use such information. Streamline does not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties serving ads or other content on the Sites.
