Personal Data that We Receive From Our Customers

The Company may collect Personal Information from its Users in a variety of ways, such as through the Website, email marketing, paper marketing, advertising, telephone contact and other instances where Users have volunteered this information to the Company (such as a conference or event). This collected information may include:

  • Contact information, such as name, email address, mailing address, phone number;
  • Billing information such as a billing address;
  • Information about a User’s business, such as the company name, address, business type;

The Company does not collect the following types of information from its Users:

  • Personal information specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information specifying the sex life of the individual), ideological views or activities, information on social security measures or administrative or criminal proceedings and sanctions, which are treated outside pending proceedings.

Other Types of Information


When Users interact with the Website, the Company uses “Cookies” to keep track of a User’s preferences and to make the User’s experiences simple and meaningful. A “Cookie” is a small file that is stored on the User’s computer for record keeping purposes. The Company does not link this information to any personally identifiable information that may be submitted by the User on the Website. The Personal Data the Company collects may include the pages on the Website which a User visited or how long such User visited the Website for. The primary purpose of Cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save Users time when the Users revisit the Website. If a User prefers otherwise, each User has the ability to decline Cookies, modify them, or remove them by changing their web browser settings.


The Company uses a third-party provider that employs a software technology called “Clear Gifs” (also known as “web beacons” or “web bugs”), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a web user’s computer hard drive, Clear Gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages or in emails and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. The Company uses Clear Gifs in its HTML-based emails to let it know which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows the Company to gauge the effectiveness of its marketing campaigns. The Company ties the information gathered by Clear Gifs in emails to its Users’ Personal Information. If a User would like to opt-out of these emails, they should contact the Company directly by mail, telephone or email at the contact information provided below, or, at any time, a User may request to opt-out by clicking the ‘unsubscribe’ link located in the footer of all marketing communication.


The Company gathers certain information automatically and this is stored in a log file. This information includes Internet protocol addresses (“IP”), browser type, domain names, access times, referring website, country, pages visited, operating system, date and time stamp and other data about what pages User visited on the Website and how long a User was there. The Company does not link this information to personally identifiable information, it is used purely for analytics purposes to see trends on the use of the Website and to gather information about the visitors to the Website.


The Company uses third-party providers to deliver targeted advertising messages. Cross-device matching: Identifying all devices that are likely to be associated with Users so that ads can be targeted, capped and sequenced across those devices. For example, cross-device matching helps us NOT show you ads for the shoes you were looking at on your phone but that already purchased on your tablet. Instead we’ll try to show you ads for an upcoming triathlon where you can put those shoes to work. It also helps us match devices so we can honor your opt-out choices across all devices we know are connected to the opted-out cookie.


The use of third-party tracking technologies by the Company’s service providers, such as with the various social media features, is not covered by this Privacy Policy and the Company does not have access or control over these third-party tracking technologies.

4. Purposes of Collection and Use

The Company may use the Personal Information it collects to:

  • Send Users requested information about the Company’s products or services;
  • Respond to requests submitted by Users;
  • Administer User accounts;
  • Send Users marketing communications;
  • Respond to User questions and concerns; and
  • Improve the Website and marketing efforts.
