Protecting your privacy is our paramount concern.

1. Registration and Opting Out.
When you register at any CREATIVE PRO MEDIA owned site, you give your consent and have the option to provide personal information, including your name, business e-mail address, business phone number and other personal information, that is required to begin your registration and receive the document(s) you requested.

2. How is Collected Information Used?
We use the personal information you supply to provide you with valuable information and offers that are relevant to your professional interests. For example, you select any e-mail newsletters you want to receive based on your individual business priorities. Based on information you share with us about your business, such as its location, industry and size, we will also send you updates about editorial content, white papers, research, training materials, templates and software tools that might meet your needs. Our resource centers provide free information, in the form of white papers, web cast announcements, podcasts, blogs and a new suite of social networking capabilities. Some of this will require additional forms to complete. Your information provided at any of the different points with the Creative Pro Media network will adhere to your permission at each level. In addition to using the information we collect about you to fulfill your requests for newsletters, information, and content, we may use the information to customize the content you see when you visit a site in the Creative Pro Media network.
TechPRO may also collect website data about how you interact with our sites and content. This may include analytical, behavioral, and weblog data.
3. Using and Protecting Your Information.
Creative Pro Media is committed to maintaining your trust and we want you to understand when and with whom we may share information collected about you. With your consent, we share your information in the following ways:
A) When you view or download white papers, research reports, webcasts and other sponsored content, the sponsor and/or provider of that content will receive the contact information you currently have on file for your Creative Pro Media, along with the title of the content you are viewing or downloading at that time. At any time, you can opt-out of contact from TechPRO.
B) For our sponsors of the sponsored content such as white papers, we will provide them with your information not limited to your First Name, Last Name, Business Email, Business Phone Number, Business Email, and Business Job Title. We may also provide public company information to our sponsors such as Company Name, Company Industry, Company Employee Size, and Company Annual Revenues. The sponsor and/or provider of this content may also receive your answers to specific questions asked at the time you access the sponsored content, as well as information regarding similar or related content you downloaded or viewed in the past.
C) The sponsor and/or provider of this content may use your information to contact you about products or services related to the content you viewed or downloaded.
D) If you do not wish your information to be provided to the sponsor, please do not register for the content. If you registered for the content but later wish to opt-out, you can do so by contacting us or contacting our sponsor directly. (TechPRO does not assume any responsibility or liability if the sponsor does not opt you out of future communications.)

4. User Submissions.
Where we have specifically invited or requested user submitted content of any kind, we encourage members of the public to submit such content (e.g. comments on the content, postings to forums, audio, video, text, or other materials—collectively, “User Submissions”) to or through the sites. User Submissions remain the intellectual property of the individual user. By posting your content on the Sites, you expressly grant Creative Pro Media a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully sublicenseable license to use, distribute, edit, display, archive, publish, sublicense, perform, reproduce, make available, transmit, broadcast, sell, translate, and create derivative works of those User Submissions, and your name, voice, likeness and other identifying information where part of a User Submission, in any form, media, software, or technology of any kind now known or developed in the future, including, without limitation, for developing, manufacturing, and marketing products. You hereby waive any moral rights you may have in your User Submissions.
We respect your ownership of User Submissions. If you owned a User Submission prior to providing it to us, you will continue owning it after providing it to us, subject to any rights granted in the Terms and any access granted to others. If you delete a User Submission from the Sites, our general license to that User Submission will end after a reasonable period of time required for the deletion to take full effect. However, the User Submission may still exist in our backup copies, which are not publicly available. In addition, if we made use of your User Submission before you deleted it, we will continue to have the right to make, duplicate, redistribute, and sublicense those pre-existing uses, even after you delete the User Submission. Terminating your account on a Site will not automatically delete your User Submission.
You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to grant to Creative Pro Media the license above and that none of your User Submissions are defamatory, violate any rights of third parties (including intellectual property rights or rights of publicity or privacy), or violate applicable law.
We employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect all of our data. Your membership account and information can only be accessed using the correct password, and the servers holding that information are protected by a firewall. We use standard SSL-encryption to ensure your personal information is protected during data transmissions. And for the purpose of business operations, access to your information is limited to authorized employees.
7. Web Beacons.
We may use electronic images known as Web beacons, or clear GIFs, to monitor the use of our Web site and e-mail reports. A Web beacon is a graphic image, often transparent and usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, which works in combination with cookies to track usage of a Web page or e-mail containing it.

8. Redirected URLs.
TechPRO uses redirected URLs to keep track of Web traffic generated by links in our e-mail reports. Redirected URLs route subscribers to Web sites after recording who they are and the links they click. This information helps us personalize the information we provide subscribers by sending them special reports and exclusive offers related to the topics that are most important to them. All subscribers receive special reports, but only those who ask to receive special offers in their subscriber profiles receive this exclusive benefit.

We may retain your Personal Information after you have cancelled your membership if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes between Members, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce this Policy and Terms. We may also retain Personal Information, for a limited period of time, if requested by law enforcement.
To protect your Personal Information, TechPRO has implemented technical, organizational and administrative measures which are generally accepted by the industry and foreign governments. These measures include, but are not limited to the implementation of current security technologies and processes to protect your information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. In particular, our security systems include authenticated access to internal databases, regular audits of processes and procedures, scheduled reviews of overall web security, and the use of restrictions of access to Personal Information in our possession.
