Information we Collect
We collect Personal Information from Users when they register to access the Commons, including name, e-mail address and other work-related contact information that they voluntarily provide to us (e.g., work address, phone number and job title). In addition, Users or their Partner Administrators may post Personal Information relating to the User to the Partner Directory portion of the Commons, including name, work address, email address and phone number, and job title. By utilizing the Commons, Users agree to provide, or allow their Partner Administrator to provide, this information to us for inclusion in the Partner Directory. Users who do not wish to be listed in the Partner Directory may send a written request to firstname.lastname@example.org to remove their information from the Partner Directory.
Technologies such as: cookies or similar technologies are used by RPC and our marketing partners, affiliates, and analytics providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking Users' movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.
As is true of most websites, we also gather certain information regarding a User's visit automatically and store it in log files in order to understand traffic patterns and compile aggregated data about Commons usage. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), the duration of session, the URL of Commons pages visited and referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you and to improve marketing, analytics, and site functionality. The collected information is not used for any other purpose.
We partner with third-party providers to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third-party providers may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this website and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. The cookies generated from the advertisements do not contain Personal Information and may remain on your hard drive three or more years unless you delete them. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you interest-based ads, you may opt-out by clicking here [http://preferences-mgr.truste.com/](or if located in the European Union click here [http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/]). Please note this does not opt you out of being served ads; you will continue to receive generic ads. Where we use third parties to provide advertising, email marketing or similar services, each such third party will have its own opt-out process, which it will manage and control. You will need to follow those procedures to opt out of the services they provide.
When you register as a User of the Commons you have the opportunity to create a profile. By doing so you are specifically consenting to our collection and use of any Personal Information you provide to us, the terms of this Policy and our Terms.
Also, when you register as a User you may be given a choice to receive email messages and/or newsletters about product updates, improvements, or partner events. We use third-party service providers to send our partner communications and marketing email. There are no cookies in the email; however, they contain e-tags which permit you to share the email via social sites to which you subscribe. In addition, when you click on a link to the Commons included in the email, a persistent cookie is placed on your computer. This cookie is used to measure the effectiveness of our email marketing efforts, better understand how our users navigate through the Commons, and enhance the user experience. To that end, we collect a variety of information about how you interact with our email communications, including how many times the email is opened and/or clicked, the browser type used, operating system, user email program, etc. The cookie sent by our service providers will remain on your hard drive for 30 days after the last time you clicked on the coded link in the email or until you delete it.
At any time you can choose to no longer receive commercial or promotional emails or newsletters from us by using the email address associated with your account to send an email to email@example.com with the word 'Unsubscribe' in the subject line or following the opt-out process below. You also will be given the opportunity, in any commercial email that we send to you, to opt out of receiving such messages in the future. It may take up to ten (10) days for us to process an opt-out request. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship email communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Please note that changing information in your account or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us.

The recipient of Personal Information following such actions may have privacy policies that differ from those in this policy.
Security and Integrity
We will take reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information collected from Users from loss and unauthorized access or disclosure. The Commons is password protected and Partner Administrators have the ability to add additional permission layers to limit the content within the Commons that their Users can access. When you enter Personal Information on our registration forms or within your Account, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We, and the service providers maintaining or otherwise handling such Personal Information on our behalf, have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction. For example, electronically stored Personal Information is stored on a secure network with firewall protection, and access to our electronic information systems requires user authentication via password or similar means. We also employ access restrictions, limiting the scope of employees who have access to Personal Information. Nevertheless, any information transmitted over the Internet may be subject to breaches of security and we cannot guarantee the security of information you send to or receive from us. Any electronic transmissions that you submit or accept are at your own risk. If you have any questions about security on our Commons, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Commons offers privately accessible blogs and community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.
