We may participate in interest-based advertising and use third party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your browsing history. We permit third party online advertising networks, social media companies and other third-party services, to collect information about your use of our online services over time so that they may play or display ads on our Services, on other websites or services you may use, and on other devices you may use. Typically, though not always, the information used for interest-based advertising is collected through tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, and similar technology, which recognize the device you are using and collect information, including click stream information, browser type, time and date you visited the Sites, AdID, precise geolocation and other information. We may share a common account identifier (such as a hashed email address or user ID) with our third-party advertising partners to help identify you across devices. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics and market research. We may also use services provided by third parties (such as social media platforms) to serve targeted ads to you and others on such platforms. We may do this by providing a hashed version of your email address or other information to the platform provider.
To learn more about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of some of this advertising, you may wish to visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (DAA) resources and/or the Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) online resources, at www.aboutads.info/choices or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. You may also be able to limit interest-based advertising through the settings menu on your mobile device by selecting “limit ad tracking” (iOS) or “opt-out of interest-based ads” (Android). You may also manage your preferences through the cookie consent banner on our Website, and may be able to opt-out of some — but not all — interest-based advertising served by mobile ad networks by visiting http://youradchoices.com/appchoices and downloading the mobile AppChoices app.

We will usually store the personal information we collect about you for no longer than necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, and in accordance with our legitimate business interests and applicable law. However, if necessary, we may retain personal data for longer periods of time, until set retention periods and deadlines expire, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements set by a legislature, regulator or other government authority.
To determine the appropriate duration of the retention of personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of personal data and if we can attain our objectives by other means, as well as our legal, regulatory, tax, accounting and other applicable obligations.

Your California Privacy Rights
If you are a resident of California you have the following rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”):
- THE RIGHT TO NON-DISCRIMINATION for exercising your CCPA rights;
- THE RIGHT TO KNOW about the personal information a business collects about you and how it is used and shared;
- THE RIGHT TO DELETE personal information we collect from you (with some exceptions); and
- THE RIGHT TO OPT-OUT OF SALES of your personal information for monetary or other valuable consideration.
- The Right to Opt Out of the SHARING of your personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes (targeted advertising).
To submit a request, please see the sections below for more information. When you submit a request, we may need additional information about you in order to sufficiently verify your request. Depending on the request, verification may require your legal name, email address, zip code, company, or phone number. If a third party is making the request on your behalf we will require proof that the third party is authorized to act on your behalf, in compliance with the CCPA. By sharing this information with us, you consent to us contacting you to fulfill your request.
The Right to Non-Discrimination
We understand privacy is important and we will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
The Right to Know & The Right to Delete
To exercise the rights to know and delete, you can contact us at [email protected] or write to us at the address in the Contact Us section. Please note that in certain instances we may not be able to fulfill your request. This may be for reasons including not having information about you, not being able to verify your request, or because we have to maintain your information to meet legal requirements. If we are unable to comply with all or a portion of your request, we will explain the reasons for declining to comply with the request.
The Right to Opt-Out of Sale of Sharing for Targeted Advertising
For California residents, we may share your information with our business partners, which may qualify as a “sale” under California law. A sale of information under the CCPA is broader than how you might commonly understand the term. Under the CCPA, “sale” includes the traditional exchange of money but it also includes any sort of benefit we may receive in exchange for your personal information. This means a CCPA sale may include instances where we co-host a webinar with a business partner and share the attendee list between hosting entities. We also share your personal information with AdTech providers. As a result, we provide the right to opt-out to comply with the CCPA and its definition of “sale” of personal information. In addition, we “share” your personal information with third parties for cross-context behavioral advertising purposes (targeted advertising). The third parties to whom we sell or share personal information may use such information for their own purposes in accordance with their own privacy policies.
