This Privacy Policy lets you know how we collect and use data about you as individuals in your business and professional roles. The Policy covers information which you give us about yourself in a business or professional role as you:

  • register for or attend events that take place in the United States;
  • subscribe to any of our print publications or access digital editions of those publications, or

When registering for our trade shows, using our website, ordering products and signing up for certain selected services (such as free subscriptions), you may be asked for information about yourself, including but not limited to contact information (such as name, e-mail address, mailing address and phone number) or demographic information (such as job title and purchasing responsibilities, company information and professional certification).

From time to time we may invite you to provide information via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and therefore you have a choice whether to disclose requested contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code or job title).
