    Web Beacons

    Legal & Financial Media uses Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and Visitors' usage of the Company's websites and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Web site tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, Legal & Financial Media may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company's websites. Legal & Financial Media uses Web beacons to operate and improve the Company's websites and email communications.

    IP Addresses

    When you visit Legal & Financial Media's websites, the Company collects your Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information.

    Legal & Financial Media also collects IP addresses from Customers whey they log into the Services as part of the Company's "Identity Confirmation" and "IP Range Restrictions" security features.

    Social Media Features

    The Company's websites may use social media features, such as the Facebook 'like' button ("Social Media Features").

Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the relevant Social Media Features.

    Do Not Track

    Currently, various browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari offer a "do not track" or "DNT" option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to websites' visited by the user about the user's browser DNT preference setting. Legal & Financial Media does not currently commit to responding to browsers' DNT signals with respect to the Company's websites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. Legal & Financial Media takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.

  5. Public forums, refer a friend, and customer testimonials

    Without limiting the generality of this Privacy Statement, in addition to information gathered through its websites or submitted to its Services, Legal & Financial Media may obtain information through applications ("Mobile Applications") that Customers or their authorized individuals ("Users") download to, and run on, their mobile devices ("Devices"). Mobile Applications provided by Legal & Financial Media may obtain information from, or access data stored on, Users' Devices to provide services related to the relevant Mobile Application. For example, a Mobile Application may: access a camera on a User's Device to enable the User to upload photographs to the Services; access the call history on a User's Device to enable the User to upload that information to the Services; access calendar information on a User's Device to enable the User to match meeting attendees with contacts submitted by the User to the Services; access the geographic location of a User's Device to enable the User to identify contacts submitted by the User to the Services who are nearby; or access contact information on a User's Device to enable the User to sync contact information between the information that is stored on the User's Device and the information that is submitted to the Services. Information obtained to provide Mobile Application services may include information obtained in preparation for anticipated updates to those services. Mobile Applications may transmit information to and from Devices to provide the Mobile Application services.

    Mobile Applications may provide Legal & Financial Media with information related to Users' use of the Mobile Application services, information regarding Users' computer systems, and information regarding Users' interaction with Mobile Applications, which Legal & Financial Media may use to provide and improve the Mobile Application services. For example, all actions taken in a Mobile Application may be logged, along with associated information (such as the time of day when each action was taken). Legal & Financial Media may also share anonymous data about these actions with third party providers of analytics services. In addition, if a User downloads a Legal & Financial Media Mobile Application after clicking on a third-party mobile advertisement for the Mobile Application or for Legal & Financial Media, the third-party advertiser may provide Legal & Financial Media with certain information, such as the User's Device identification information, which Legal & Financial Media may use to track the performance of its advertising campaigns.

    Customers may configure Legal & Financial Media Mobile Application services, and the information accessed or obtained by the Mobile Application on a User's Device may be affected by the Customer's configuration. In addition, if a Customer purchases more than one Service from Legal & Financial Media and its affiliates, a Mobile Application may be designed to interoperate with those Services; for instance, to provide a User with access to information from any or all of those Services or to provide information from a User's Device to any or all of those Services. Information accessed or obtained by the Mobile Application on a User's Device may be accessible to the Customer and its organization, depending on the intended functionality of the Mobile Application.

    In addition to Mobile Applications offered by Legal & Financial Media, the Company may offer platforms for the creation of third-party Mobile Applications, including but not limited to the Salesforce1 platform. Third parties may obtain information from, or access data stored on, Users' Devices to provide services associated with any third-party Mobile Applications that Users download, install, use, or otherwise interact with over a Legal & Financial Media platform. Legal & Financial Media's Mobile Applications may also contain links or integrations to other Mobile Applications provided by third parties. Third parties' use of information collected through third-party Mobile Applications is governed by the privacy statements of such third parties. The Company encourages you to review the privacy statements of third-party providers of Mobile Applications to understand their information practices.

    Notices and contractual terms related to a particular Mobile Application may be found in the End User License Agreement or relevant terms of service for that application. The Company encourages you to review the End User License Agreement or relevant terms of service related to any Mobile Applications you download, install, use, or otherwise interact with to understand that Mobile Application's information practices. The Mobile Application's access to information through a User's Device does not cause that information to be "Customer Data" under Legal & Financial Media's Master Subscription Agreement with the Customer or under this Privacy Statement, except as follows: To the extent that a User uses a Mobile Application to submit electronic data and information to a Customer account on our Services pursuant to the Customer's Master Subscription Agreement with Legal & Financial Media (or a similar agreement that governs the Customer's subscription(s) to Legal & Financial Media's Services), that information constitutes "Customer Data" as defined in such agreement, and the provisions of that agreement with respect to privacy and security of such data will apply. Additional information about the Company's privacy and security practices with respect to Customer Data is available here.
