Description of Users and Acceptance of Terms

This Privacy Policy applies to visitors to the Website (“Visitors,” “you,” or “your”).

By accessing the Website, Visitors are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

The Information We Collect and How We Use It

In the course of operating the Website, we may collect or otherwise receive the following types of information:

Contact Information

The contact information collected on the Website varies depending on the webpage but typically includes some combination of your name, email address, contact type, company information (including address), and any information you provide in messages to us. We use such contact information for purposes such as responding to, and following up regarding, your inquiries, providing you with requested information, sending you email alerts (including marketing emails), or reviewing your job application materials. Depending on the nature of your message, we may route your information to an appropriate third party to better address such message.

In some cases, such as when you sign up for a webcast, presentation or other event/service, we may receive your contact information from a third-party website. When we collect such contact information, our use of such contact information shall be pursuant to this Privacy Policy. In addition, please see Links to External Websites below for more information on submission of information to third-party websites.

Server Logs

Like most websites today, we use web servers that keep log files that record data each time a device accesses those servers. These log files are maintained by our website hosting service and contain data about the nature of such access, including the device’s IP address, user agent string (e.g., operating system and browser type/version), and referral URL (i.e., the external source by which you arrived at the Website, or the pages you’ve clicked on while on the Website). We may wish to use these log files for purposes such as monitoring and troubleshooting errors and incidents, analyzing web traffic or optimizing the user experience.


We collect information using “cookie” technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive (or other storage medium) so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We use both first- and third-party session cookies and persistent cookies. Below is a general primer on session and persistent cookies; information collected by cookies depends on its particular purpose. For more information, please see the information regarding analytics providers discussed further below.

  • Session Cookies: We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Website. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser.
  • Persistent Cookies: A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive (or other storage medium) for an extended period of time or until you delete it. To the extent we provide a log-in portal or related feature on the Website, persistent cookies can be used to store your password so that you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track analytics and target the interests of our Visitors to personalize the experience on the Website.

In some cases, we may associate information that you have provided to us (e.g., email address) with the cookies that we use. In addition to facilitating the purposes described above, this is useful in understanding your engagement with other content related to the Website (e.g., email open rates, URL clickthroughs).

The following table lists the different types of cookies that we and our service providers may use on the Website, examples of who serves those cookies, and links to the privacy notices and opt-out information of those cookie servers. Please note that cookie practices may differ over time and across specific pages on the Website. The below list provides illustrative examples, but it should not be considered an exhaustive list of each cookie used on each webpage.

We do not use analytical tools in a manner that discloses to third parties that a specific person viewed specific video materials.

If you do not want us to place any cookies on your device (or any third-party cookies, if you’d like), you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your browser’s documentation for information on how to do this. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, certain aspects of the Website may not function properly or as intended. You can find out more about cookies and how to manage them by visiting:
