When a Member accesses Content, we or our service providers may collect Personal Information (information that could reasonably be used to contact or to identify the Member personally) such as name, e-mail address, and telephone number.
Usage Information. RPOA, as well as our service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Content is accessed and used (“ Usage Information ”). Usage Information may include, in part, browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, and the preceding page views. These statistical data provides us with information about the use of the Content, such as how many visitors visit a specific page of the Content, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. This information helps us keep our Content fresh and interesting to Members and to tailor Content to a Member’s interests.
Device Identifiers. RPOA may also automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier (“ Device Identifier ”) for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, “ Device ”) that a Member uses to access Content. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to a Device when it accesses a web site or its servers, and our computers identify the Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Content, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track Members’ web page movements, help identify, and gather broad demographic or firmographic information for aggregate use.
Cookies; Pixel Tags. The technologies that we use to collect Usage Information, including Device Identifiers, may include but are not limited to: cookies (data files placed on a Device when it is used to visit the Site), mobile analytics software and pixel tags (transparent graphic image, sometimes called a web beacon or tracking beacon, placed on a web page or in an email, which indicates that a page or email has been viewed). Cookies may also be used to associate and Member with social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and, if the Member so chooses, enable interaction between your activities accessing Content and your activities on such social networking sites. We, or our vendors, may place cookies or similar files on a Device for security purposes, to facilitate site navigation and to personalize a Member’s experience while accessing Content (such as allowing us to select which Content, ads or offers are most likely to appeal to a Member, based on a Member’ interests, preferences, location, or demographic or firmographic information). A pixel tag may tell a browser to get content from another server.
Similarly, we may use Google Analytics to help us track and analyze usage of our Content, using cookies, pixels and other tracking technologies.
A browser’s help menu or other browser instructions explains how to reduce the number of cookies received from us, or to delete cookies that have already been installed. A Member that disables or opts out of receiving cookies should be aware that some features and services that we provide may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize and associate a Member with the Member’s account(s). Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that can tell websites that a Member does not want to have online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so our systems may not be configured to recognize Do Not Track headers or signals from some or all browsers.
Members can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different types of browser.
Any information a Member submits to us when accessing Content or allows us to obtain will be used for a variety of business purposes, including for example, to: respond to questions and requests; provide access to certain areas and features of Content; verify a Member’s identity; communicate with Members about how they access and use Content; tailor Content, advertisements, and offers we serve to Members; market research, web server analytics and operations; improve our web servers and for other internal purposes; and for purposes disclosed at the time that a Member provides or otherwise allows us to obtain Personal Information.
Corporate Members. We may share a Member’s Personal Information with some of our Corporate Members with the understanding that our Corporate Members have the Member's consent in receiving educational resources, information on services or products, and other offers that might be of interest to the Member.
Other Third Parties. To carry out a Member’s requests, to make Content and various features, services and materials available, and to respond to Member inquiries, we may share Personal Information with third parties that perform functions on our behalf, such as companies or individuals that: host or operate our web servers; analyze data; or provide customer service.
Business Transfers. Personal Information may also be used by us or shared with our subsidiaries or affiliates, for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes. As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or all or substantially all of our assets, Personal Information, Usage Information, and any other information that we have collected may be disclosed to such entity as part of the due diligence process and will be transferred to such entity as one of the transferred assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
