Privacy Policy

At TechPubs, we are committed to protecting your privacy.

We collect information about visitors to in several different ways, and we use that information to fulfill your enquiries and analyze the effectiveness of our web site. In this Privacy Policy we provide detailed information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it and how we keep it secure. Our philosophy is centered on permission-based contact. As such, we handle the personal information you entrust us with, with the highest respect.

1. What information do we collect? When you visit, we may collect two different types of information about you: personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information.

1.1 Personally identifiable information Personally identifiable information means any information that may be used to identify you, such as your name, title, phone number, email address, or mailing address. In all circumstances, we only collect personally identifiable information if you choose to give it to us.

You may choose to provide us with personally identifiable information for three main reasons:

    To receive newsletters, announcements, etc. If you choose to subscribe to one of our newsletters, we will need you to register and provide us with at least your email address. If you do so register, you should be aware that, if you open one of our email newsletters or announcements, we may record that event and/or any URLs you click on within the message. This helps us make sure that the newsletters and emails that we send to you are as effective as possible for you and for us.

    To access specific content - some content and activities on our site - for example, to read a white paper, make a sales enquiry, respond to a survey, or register for an event - require more than just your email address. They will require you to create a membership account where we collect additional personal information about you.

    To apply for a job opening - you may voluntarily submit your CV in connection with a job opening at TechPubs that you wish to be considered for.

In all cases, we only request personally identifiable information to the extent required to be able to answer your enquiries, inform you of important company or product news (where you requested to receive such info) or process your job application. We store this personally identifiable information on our own secure servers, and we retain it for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected or further processed or for any additional period as may be required by law. We do not use it for any other purpose than set out in this Privacy Policy nor will we share it with third parties.

If you subscribe to one of our mailing lists you can unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions in the footer of the email messages that you receive.

1.2 Non-Personally Identifiable Information

The non-personally identifiable information we collect is typical of many web sites and is collected purely to help us to understand our web site visitors better, and to learn which sections of our site are most and least popular. This information, which cannot be traced to you, includes the type of browser and processor you are using to view the site, an IP address. We may also track the pages visited within our site. We store this information on our own secure server for a period of 6 months.

2. Do we use cookies? A cookie is a small text file stored by your web browser on your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow us to provide you with a user-friendly registration and log-in process. They help us to retrieve statistical information about your visit to our site (e.g. number of visits, returning visitors, hits per page, navigation paths) and to analyze your site traffic patterns. A cookie cannot give us access to information stored on your computer or to information beyond what you provide to us.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. If you prefer not to receive cookies from our web site, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you choose to disable cookies from our web site, you can still access the restricted content of our web site, but you will be asked to logon every time you visit.

3. How do we protect your information? We record the personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information described above on our own servers. We do not sell, share or rent this information to anyone outside TechPubs, and access to it is restricted to employees of TechPubs who have a specific, job-related need for it. Our servers are protected against unauthorized access by outsiders.

Because TechPubs is a global company, your personal information may be shared with other TechPubs offices or subsidiaries in the US, Europe and elsewhere. However, this Privacy Policy will govern use of your personal information by such offices and subsidiaries.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, you should be aware that the open nature of the Internet is such that data may flow over networks without security measures and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended. If you choose to send any electronic communications to TechPubs by means of the Internet, you do so at your own risk. TechPubs cannot guarantee that such communications will not be intercepted or changed or that they will reach the intended recipient safely.

4. Links contain links to other web sites that we believe may be relevant to our visitors' needs. We do not have any control over these other web sites, and therefore we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information that you provide while visiting those sites. Those sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and if you have questions about how a site uses your information, please consult that site's privacy statement.
