Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy (as of 05/07/2020)

The Digital Report, LLC is committed to protecting the privacy of the information you share with us when you access any of our services (“Services”) which can include but are not limited to our website(s), application(s), product(s), event(s) and other offerings. This policy describes how we collect, utilize, and share any personally identifiable information (PII) you provide to us when you access or use any of our Services.

This policy may be supplemented by additional privacy terms or notices disclosed to you in connection with your registration for or receipt of Services.

Collection of Information

We may collect PII and/or anonymous information from you when you access our Services. This includes information you provide to us via subscription or registration for any of our digital, in-person or printed services (e.g. sign up for newsletters or promotions; participate in a survey; purchase a product or service; use one of our mobile applications; post comments; and/or otherwise communicate with us or interact with our Services).

Once you have interacted with our Services, we create a profile for you. We keep your profile up to date by adding information about your various interactions with our services. This allows us to offer a consistent and personalized experience in your interactions with us.  Information gathered through one Service may be combined with information obtained through other company services.

We may also receive information about you from external sources that are not affiliated with The Digital Report, LLC and may add that to the information you have provided to us. This information may be public information or data you provided to others with authorizations to share it with third parties.

Cookies and Technology

We use cookies (small data files stored on your computer by your web browser upon visiting a website) to operate our Services efficiently and as intended. Through these technologies we gather information about you, such as your browser type, operating system, IP address, mobile device identification number, and navigation history. We may also use these technologies to gather information about your interactions with our Services, such as the time and date when you viewed or used a page or item of content or functionality, which advertisements you have clicked on and whether you filled out an online form. When you receive newsletters or promotional emails from The Digital Report, LLC, we use customized links or similar technologies to determine whether the email has been opened and which links you click, in order to refine future email communications or other information.

We use information gathered through these tools for our internal security audit log, for trend analysis and system administration, to gather broad information about our audiences and their geographic locations, and to otherwise improve our Services. By allowing us to understand how you use our Services, these tools can help us provide you with a more relevant, enhanced online experience. In addition, we may work with third-party advertising companies to target and serve advertising you see on the Services or on third-party sites based on preferences gathered from technologies used.

You may set your browser to block cookies, including those from The Digital Report, LLC, while using our Services (in which case some aspects of the Services may not function properly), or you may set your browser to block third-party cookies and allow first-party cookies, which would allow us to exclusively collect such information (without third party involvement). Please refer to your browser’s documentation if you wish to block some or all cookies and/or similar tools.

We reserve the right to utilize updated or new technologies, if needed, to gather additional, relevant information from our users and improve our Services and your experience of them.

How We Use Your Information

We may use information about you to:  1) provide you with Services and information that you have requested from us or that we think may be of interest to you; 2) to send account notices, manage your account, respond to requests, inquiries, comments or concerns; 3) to offer you customized content and individualized personalization of the Services to make them more relevant to your interests; 4) to ask for your input to help in research about our Services; 4) to contact you with information about, and provide invitations for, products, services, events and research opportunities directed at your interests.

Visitor Consent

By using/accessing The Digital Report, LLC Services, you consent to our collection, use and sharing of your PII as described in this policy. In some cases, particularly if you reside in a country governed by a data protection regulation, we may ask you to provide explicit consent to receive information before we are able to send it to you.

Email Opt-Out

You may opt-out of our email marketing lists by following the directions to unsubscribe at the bottom of our emails.

If you believe that the information we have about you requires an update, please contact us so we can keep your information accurate.

If at any point you wish for The Digital Report, LLC to delete information about you, you can simply contact us here.

You may receive email marketing messages from us about other companies’ offerings as part of any business partner marketing program we have in place. To opt-out of any business partner marketing program, you may follow the instructions at the bottom of any email we send you as part of the program.

You may also receive personalized ads for our products/events while browsing the internet. To opt out of receiving these personalized ads, the following third-party opt-out tools can be used for that purpose:

—DAA:  http://www.aboutads.info/

—NAI:  http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1

Please note that this “opt-out” function is browser-specific and relies on an “opt-out cookie”, thus, if you delete your cookies or upgrade your browser after having opted out, you will need to opt-out again.

Please note that opting-out of promotional mailings will not affect delivery of your subscription-based products.

Access to Your Information

You have the right to request access to the information we have about you. Simply contact us here. In order to comply with your request, we may ask you to verify your identity in the process. We will fulfill your request by sending your copy electronically unless the request expressly specifies a different method. For any access request outside of electric delivery, we may charge you an administrative/delivery fee.

Information Disclosure

The Digital Report, LLC contracts with other companies to provide certain services on our behalf, including customer service, credit card and billing processing, shipping, subscription fulfillment, research, analytics, list cleansing, postal mailings, email and fax deployment, telemarketing, and other information and business services. We only provide these companies with the relevant information required to perform their services and they are explicitly restricted from using any data received from us for their own marketing purposes.

We may also provide your information to third parties for marketing and/or analytical purposes as further described below:

Sponsors and Gated Resources

From time to time our sponsors wish to contact our subscribers and customers who have indicated an interest in their products, services or events. If you register for or access Services offered by these vendors, you choose to share your name and contact details directly with those vendors so that they may contact you. For example, if you register for a vendor-branded (or co-branded with us) resource, we will collect your registration information on behalf of that vendor for its own use. We may also keep a copy of that data for our own use, consistent with this privacy policy. We may provide a link to the vendor’s privacy policy (as well as to this policy) on the registration page.

Similarly, if you access third-party resources in certain registration-only, or “gated” websites, resource centers, or directory services on our websites, we may share your registration information when you access or click on a link to technical resources provided or sponsored by another company. This includes third-party resources sold through our online stores. In addition, we may share your contact information with sponsors of a e-newsletter if you click on their information or offerings. If you do not wish to have your information shared, you will be given an opportunity within the e-newsletter to opt-out.

When you register for an in-person or digital event, we will provide your registration information to the sponsor(s) of such event. We may also provide your information to sponsors of special sessions within the larger event.

Correcting and/or Updating Your Information

If you are a registered user, you can access your account information and make corrections or updates upon log-in. The accuracy of such information is solely your responsibility. You may also separately contact us to request access to other PII about you which is in our possession. If you request to deactivate your account or delete your PII, we will endeavor to fulfill your request but some PII may persist in backup copies for a certain period of time and may be retained as necessary for legitimate business purposes or to comply with our legal obligations.

Information Security

We use a variety of technical, physical, and administrative security measures to secure the confidentiality of your PII and to protect it from loss, misuse, alteration, and destruction. However, due to the design of the Internet and other factors outside our control, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties or by government agencies. You remain responsible for protecting any username(s) and password(s) and for the security of information in transit to us via digital means.

Other Important Information

The Digital Report, LLC reserves the right to access and disclose PII to comply with applicable laws, government requests, court orders and other legal requirements, or to investigate alleged or suspected fraud or violations of the terms and conditions governing our Services.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

As new products and services are offered or as existing products and services are improved, we may need to update this policy. When we do so we will post the changes here. We encourage you to review this policy from time to time to stay informed about how we are protecting the PII you provide. Your continued use of our Services covered by this policy constitutes your consent to the practices in place at the time of your use.
