What identifying information do we collect?

DP collects personally identifiable information that you provide to us, knowingly, through any Day Pitney Site. "Personally identifiable information" refers to information that directly identifies you, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, employer name, title, department, and telephone number. DP collects personally identifiable information only when knowingly provided by you in online forms or registration forms. For example, you may voluntarily may supply us your Personal Data when you take an action such as registering for participation in an educational program offered by DP, requesting information regarding services offered by DP, submitting materials for publication on a blog hosted by DP, or otherwise enter your Personal Data on any online form hosted on a Day Pitney Site.

Also, DP may collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit a Day Pitney Site. "Non-personally identifiable information" refers to information that does not identify you but which can be used to track certain Internet conduct. For instance, your computer's IP address, your web browser's identity, the date and time you accessed the website, the page or pages you visited and images you accessed, the website you arrived to the Day Pitney Site from and the website that you depart to as well as the IP address of the computer being used to access the Day Pitney Site, may be all collected without any action on your part.

When a user performs a search within a Day Pitney Site, DP may record information identifying the user or linking the user to the search performed. DP may also record limited information associated with search requests made by a user and use that information to, among other things, solve technical problems with a Day Pitney Site and to calculate overall usage statistics.

What do we do with the identifying information we collect?
DP uses your personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information in the following ways:

Non-personally identifiable information. Day Pitney may use your non-personally identifiable information for any legal purpose. Generally, we track non-personally identifiable information for internal purposes and to help us interact with visitors to the Day Pitney Sites. While we do not generally do so, we may correlate non-personally identifiable information to particular individuals to investigate possible illegal conduct or violations of the Terms of Use governing your use of the Day Pitney Sites, to comply with legal process (e.g. subpoenas), and to assist law enforcement agencies, or as otherwise required by law.

Personally identifiable information. Day Pitney may use and disclose your personally identifiable information for any legal purpose. Generally, we use this information to contact you directly in response to your website interaction and continue to provide educational and advertising materials to you. In addition, DP may use your personally identifiable information to investigate possible illegal conduct or violations of the Terms of Use governing your use of the Day Pitney Sites, to comply with legal process (e.g. subpoenas), and to assist law enforcement agencies, or as otherwise required by law.

Do we share the information we collect with third parties?
DP may share with third parties your personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information for any legal purpose. For example, we may share your information with third parties that assist us in providing our services or products or otherwise responding to your requests or orders. Further, we may share information with third parties for market and industry research purposes, for advertising and marketing purposes, and potentially other reasons.

Without limiting the foregoing, DP may transfer any information in its databases, including but not limited to personally identifiable information, to a third party as part of a transfer of business assets. Also, DP may release personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information in order to comply with requests from law enforcement and government agencies, to enforce the Terms of Use and other agreements, and to protect clients and others. We will do so when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is otherwise necessary or advisable, including, for instance, to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with the rights or property of DP, another user or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

Do we use cookies, pixel tags and other tracking technologies?
Yes, we may use cookies, pixel tags and other passive tracking technologies to collect non-personally identifiable information.

Cookies are pieces of information generated by web servers and stored in your computer for future access. We use them to study visitors' use of the Day Pitney Sites and to improve your navigation of it. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard. You can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do so, it is possible that some areas of web sites that use cookies will not function properly when you view them.

Pixel tags (also called "web beacons" or "clear gifs") may also be used on the Day Pitney Sites.  Pixel tags help us analyze online behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Day Pitney Sites.  Pixel tags on the Day Pitney Sites may be used to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the Day Pitney Sites.

Information collected using cookies, pixel tags and other passive tracking technologies may include, for example, your computer's IP address, your browser type and version, your operating system, date and time information, and other technical information about your computer. We may also track certain information about the identity of the websites you visited before coming to any Day Pitney Site.

We also may use pixel tags in our emails to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us.

We may work with third party vendors and agents ("Service Providers") that help us track, collect, and analyze information about online behavior. We may leverage Adobe Analytics, Google Analytics, and similar analytics and/or internet-based advertising tools in this process. You can learn more about how Google uses data when you use their partners' sites or apps here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. For example, we may use the following features in conjunction with Google Analytics for Display Advertisers: Remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, DoubleClick Platform integrations, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting.  You may locate Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

What about Third Party Links?
Although the Day Pitney Sites provide links to third-party web sites, they are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Day Pitney assumes no responsibility for the privacy or security of information you provide to any third party through linked web sites or any other means. We urge you to review the privacy policy and terms of use of any web site that you visit.

Security
While Day Pitney strives to protect your personally-identifiable information and user privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. This Privacy Policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond DP's control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information collected through the Day Pitney Sites, DP cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from a Day Pitney Site, and you do so at your own risk.

Children
The Day Pitney Sites are not intended for children under the age of 18, and Day Pitney does not intentionally collect personally-identifiable information from children under 18. If you have reason to believe that we have collected personally-identifiable information from someone under 18 years of age, please let us know.

Choice
You will have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving unsolicited e-mail communications from us when we first collect your personally-identifiable information through any Day Pitney Site.
