Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 8, 2012

Action Target, Inc. understands the importance of protecting private information, and we appreciate your trust that we will protect your information in a careful and sensitive matter. By visiting our websites – www.actiontarget.com, www.shopactiontarget.com, and all subdirectories contained therein – you accept the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

Personal Information

  • In order for us to personalize your experience and deliver content and support best suited to your needs, we collect some information from you when you visit our site. The types of information that we gather include:
  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, improving our site, giving you materials and support suited to your needs, and communicating with you.  By providing your email address, you indicate your willingness to receive e-mail correspondence from us. You may opt-out at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link of any email or by contacting us at support@actiontarget.com.
  • Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses.
  • E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please email us at support@actiontarget.com, and we will ensure you are removed from our lists.

Cookies

  • Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as exclusive web content, customer support, downloadable content (such as whitepapers), videos, and other material that is only available to subscribers of our site.
  • The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our site’s essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to access any Action Target Journal published articles, customer support, downloadable content (such as whitepapers), videos, make online purchases, and other materials that are only available to subscribers of our site.

Information Sharing

  • Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.
  • Third-Party Service Providers: We sometimes employ other companies and/or sub-contractors to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing web development, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
  • Protection of Action Target, Inc. and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Action Target, Inc., our users, or others. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
  • With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

Security

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.

Your Choices

  • As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to access most of our exclusive content.
  • If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please contact us at support@actiontarget.com and we will remove you from our mailing lists.
  • The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of Action Target’s essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to access any Action Target Journal published articles, customer support, downloadable content (such as whitepapers), videos, make online purchases, and other materials that are only available to subscribers of our site.

Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions

  • If you choose to visit our websites, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the state of Utah. If you have any concern about privacy at our websites, please contact us at support@actiontarget.com with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Our business is constantly being updated and improved, and our Privacy Notice will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
