What information of mine do emedia websites collect?
Our goal is to become one of your favorite Internet destinations by providing the information, services, and product offerings that are most relevant to you. To achieve this goal, emedia websites must collect information so we can understand what makes you different from its millions of other unique users. While you are not required to register for all services on emedia websites, some Products and Services may not function properly or may not be accessible unless you do.
Information collected online is usually defined as being either anonymous or personally identifiable
Anonymous information refers to data that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. For example, emedia collects some information each time a visitor comes to an emedia website so we can improve the overall quality of the visitor's online experience. emedia sometimes collects the visitor's IP address (e.g., whether the user is logged on from ibm.com or aol.com), referral data (e.g., the Internet address of the last Web page visited by a user before clicking over to an emedia website), and browser and platform type (e.g., an Internet Explorer browser on a Windows platform). emedia collects this user information for purposes of product monitoring, product improvement, and targeted advertising. You do not have to register with emedia websites before we can collect this anonymous information.
Personally identifiable information refers to data that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name and postal address, which may be collected in addition to the anonymous data described above. emedia collects personal information in the following ways from different parts of its of websites:
When you register to use our ebulletins service, you provide emedia with your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, job title and other information. While not all of this data is required for our services to function, we are better able to customize your experience if you volunteer complete and accurate information. Users who complete the registration process are given a login and can take full advantage of the many offerings across the ebulletins website.
In addition to registration for various services on the emedia, we may ask you for personal information at other times, including when you enter a contest or promotion sponsored by emedia. If you choose not to provide the requested information, emedia websites may not be able to offer you some of the personalized services that depend on this type of information to function
If you contact emedia websites, we may keep a record of that correspondence. We do not collect any email addresses of those who communicate with emedia websites via email. We use the information provided so that we may respond to the email.
What organization is collecting the information?
When you register for an emedia service, that information is generally collected and maintained solely by emedia websites unless specifically stated otherwise at the point of collection. If data is collected and/or maintained by any company other than emedia, (e.g. RapidRequest, RapidResearch etc.) we will tell you at the point of collection. If you do not want to share your information with that company, you can choose not to use that service.
What are "cookies" and how does emedia use them?
In addition to the personally identifiable information that emedia actively collects when you register, we also collect anonymous information passively using cookies. This technology plays an important role in making the Internet work, but there is much confusion among Internet users about what cookies are and how they are used.
A cookie is a small text file containing a unique identification number that is transferred from a Website to the hard drive of your computer so that the site administrator may identify your computer and passively track its activities on the Website. This unique number identifies your Web browser to our computer system whenever you visit one of the sites in emedia websites. A cookie will not allow a Website to learn any personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) that you have not otherwise disclosed.
Prevent others from using your account. On some emedia websites, cookies help us efficiently determine that only one user is logged on under the same login name at a time.
Measure statistics such as audience size and traffic patterns. This information is only collected in aggregate form and will not be linked to your personally identifiable information.
Web beacons, also known as clear GIFs or single-pixel GIFs, are small image files that Emedia may place on Web pages and within Web-based email newsletters that we send. Working in conjunction with cookies, Web beacons allow Emedia to accurately count the number of unique users who have visited a specific page on emedia websites and the number of times those pages are displayed. We can also use Web beacons to let us know how many people opened a Web-based email newsletter. This information is only collected in aggregate form and will not be linked to your personally identifiable information.
Without cookies and Web beacons, it would be difficult for emedia to know which services have a larger audience than others. Tracking audience size helps us to better understand when to launch new services and enhance the current offerings. Keep in mind that any image file on a Web page can act as a Web beacon. Third-party advertising networks for emedia may use Web beacons in their advertisements.
Because Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies, you can prevent our Web beacon from collecting anonymous information by setting your Web browser to refuse all cookies or emedia website cookie's in particular. Web beacons are built into our Web pages, so non-functional Web beacons will continue to appear even if you refuse emedia website cookie's.
How does emedia use the information it collects?
Any personally identifiable information you share with emedia when registering for Products and Services at any of our websites is maintained and accessible only by emedia unless specifically stated otherwise. emedia requests information from its users so that users can enjoy customized experiences across all emedia websites, including personalization services, interactive communications and much more. Most of these Products and Services are available to you at no cost, and emedia displays advertisements so we can continue to provide great content and services free of charge. We can also better prepare future content based on your interests.
The following are examples of how emedia websites may use the information it collects:
emedia uses the information collected (both anonymous and personal) to personalize and enhance the content you see on the emedia websites. In some cases, our Products and Services cannot work unless you have volunteered accurate information.
emedia sometimes collects anonymous data and shares it with third-party advertisers in an aggregate form. We will disclose to those advertisers the numbers of emedia users who have certain demographic characteristics and the number of those people who have seen and "clicked" on a particular display. We will also disclose to those advertisers the overall demographics available regarding who saw and "clicked" on their advertisement. No personally identifiable information will be disclosed as part of this process.
emedia also uses the aggregate data to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our registered users and visitors, to measure user demographics and interests regarding specific areas of emedia website, and to analyse how and where best to use our resources. We do not track what pages individual users are browsing, but rather how well each page performs overall. Without such data, we would not know which parts of emedia websites are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.
emedia sometimes uses an individual registered user's data to "pre-populate" online forms that are displayed for the purpose of collecting additional individual data by emedia websites, selected third-party sites, and/or sponsors and advertisers.
emedia may, from time to time, use your information to contact you about changes or enhancements to Products and Services on emedia websites, issues regarding your account, or emedia websites Terms and Conditions violations or suspensions.

For those who elect to receive such materials directly from selected sponsors or advertisers, emedia will release personally identifiable information to the applicable sponsor or advertiser. Information released includes name, email address, postal address and other information supplied in ebulletins website registration process. emedia may also combine information we have about you with information we obtain about you from third parties for the purpose of providing you with more appropriate products, services, and offerings.
