INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
In order to download certain materials, site visitors may be required to complete a registration form. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to keep you informed via email of user experience trends and to alert you when we release new research that is in your industry. You can opt out of email communication from us at any time by clicking on a link at the bottom of the email we send.
We will not share or sell your name, email address, company, or phone number with any other party.
Once you have completed our registration form, we send you an email at the email address you provided on the membership registration form. The email contains a link that validates that you have received the email. When you click on this link you are immediately taken to the document you requested. We send this email to verify that your email address is valid and to ensure that you indeed are able to receive email at this address. This also helps to protect your email address from unauthorized use on our site.
Membership information you provide is transmitted via secure socket layer encryption or SSL.
If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information (such as name and email) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date).
We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. Your credit card number and expiration date are not stored in our database and are sent to a third party payment gateway for processing via SSL encryption.
All order and payment information you provide is transmitted via SSL encryption.
When you download a document (a report you purchase, an industry fact sheet, etc.) subjects associated with the documents are associated with your username and are saved in our database. We use this information to help ensure that the communications we send to you are relevant to your interests.
