TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may automatically track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our site:
- IP addresses
- Domain servers
- Types of computers accessing the site
- Web browsers used to access the site
Traffic data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you. We also use “cookies” to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store your password (if applicable) so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the site. Octagon uses log files to analyze and administer our site. You remain anonymous in these Web site log files unless you have created a password or other information to access specific portion of the site.
To let you access certain parts of our site, such as signing up for our newsletters or to receive digital editions of the magazine, we require you to provide us with certain information that personally identifies you. This includes first and last name, e-mail address, other contact information, title, occupation, industry, place of employment, and other information necessary to provide a service that you requested. If you communicate with us by e-mail or otherwise complete online forms, any information provided in such communication may be collected as personal information.
Octagon maintains e-mail lists to keep registered persons informed about our company, and we use it to fulfill your requests or to contact you when necessary. We may also use your personal information to send you information that you requested, or to confirm service request submissions.
We may use your e-mail address to keep you informed about events or other items of interest, to notify you of recent updates to our site, or to provide you with other information. You may opt-out from our mailing lists by replying to the email message. This opt-out procedure may not be available for transactional or relationship messages, such as e-mails that are necessary to provide you with confirmation of a request or to provide notification of changes of terms of service. We may use your mailing address or telephone number to send you periodic mailings or telephone you to inform you of new products, services, or events. If you do not wish to receive such calls, you may request to be removed from the call list at the time of the call.
If you do not wish to provide us with your personal information, you will still be able to access and use the entire site except where personal information is required. If you do not wish to receive information and promotional material from us or from any third parties, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will keep your personal information private and will not share it with third parties unless we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with relevant law or to respond to a court order or other legal process served on Octagon or to protect and defend our rights or property.
Your personal information is stored on secure servers that are not accessible by third parties. Any information you transmit to us is via secured and encrypted channels if you use a similarly-equipped web browser.
You must promptly notify us if your user name or password is lost, stolen, or used without permission. In such an event, we will remove that user name or password from your account and update our records accordingly.
