Automatically Collected Information
When You access a REISCOUT Platform or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from You or Your system by using different types of tracking technology, including server logs. This "automatically" information may include Internet Protocol address ("IP Address"), a unique device or user ID, version of software installed, system type, browser used, the Content and pages that You access on or through a REISCOUT Platform, the dates and times that You visit a REISCOUT Platform, documents and other Content that You searched for, viewed, uploaded, downloaded, printed, emailed, saved, the Content You have started to complete or, messages sent to and received from REISCOUT and other REISCOUT users using the REISCOUT messaging system, as well as advertisements that You moused over or clicked on, and information from Your Facebook account that You make publicly available, which is provided to us by Facebook via the Facebook application programming interface (“API”). Like most websites, our servers automatically record the page requests made when You visit our REISCOUT Platform sites. These "server logs" typically include Your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of Your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify Your browser.
A REISCOUT Platform may track the total number of visitors to a REISCOUT Platform, the number of visitors to each page of a REISCOUT Platform, browser or device type, and IP addresses, and we may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be maintained, used, and disclosed in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable information. We may use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer a REISCOUT Platform, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
We may provide Your personally identifiable information and the data generated by cookies, web beacons, logs, and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing our Platforms, Services, advertising, and any other product and/or service to You. Such third-party entities may be obligated to use Your personally identifiable information to provide the services to us. We will disclose Your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or in cooperation with any governmental investigation, including upon receipt of what we believe may be a valid subpoena, whether issued by a Court that has jurisdiction over REISCOUT or not. (Please note that REISCOUT reserves the absolute right to assert that only the Federal District Court of the Northern District of Georgia, and the Flint Superior Court have jurisdiction over REISCOUT, and subpoenas from outside these two jurisdictions must be "domesticated," though we are not obligated to do so.) We will not sell Your personally identifiable information to any company or organization, however, we may transfer Your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation, or other corporate reorganization in which REISCOUT participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of REISCOUT's assets to which a REISCOUT Platform or Service relates.
Disclosure of Documents Viewed, Downloaded or Printed, REISCOUT Account Information, and other Information
Under certain circumstances We may disclose the Content (documents) viewed, downloaded, or printed, REISCOUT Account information, and other information. Typically those circumstances include when someone questions or disputes a charge, transaction, or having subscribed to a REISCOUT Platform or Service. If a credit card or PayPal account holder questions or disputes a charge we may disclose the history of Content (documents) viewed, downloaded, or printed, as well as the internet protocol (IP) addresses the purported credit card or PayPal account holder logged in to a REISCOUT Platform from, and dates and times of logging in, and certain information pertaining to the REISCOUT account, such as the email address provided by the REISCOUT account holder. We may disclose this information to: the REISCOUT or credit card or PayPal account holder, if such person provides us with sufficient information for us to reasonably verify that such person is one of the actual REISCOUT or credit card or PayPal account holders; someone acting on behalf of the actual REISCOUT or credit card or PayPal account holder(s), if such person provides us with sufficient information for us to reasonably verify that such person is acting on behalf of the actual REISCOUT or credit card or PayPal account holder(s); or Our transaction and payment processors and any service that facilitates Our transaction and payment processing.

Links to Third-Party Sites/Opt-Out for Non-PII Collection for Network Services
We use third-party advertising companies and advertising networks to serve advertisements to You on our behalf when You visit our Website, and to optimize advertisements. These, and other companies may use information (typically not including Your name, address, email address, or telephone number, but sometimes including Your company name and job title gathered from Your REISCOUT profile information) about Your visits to a REISCOUT Platform and other Websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to You, as well as to provide us with information that is intended to make our Platforms and Services better, and for other business reasons. They, or we, may do this by using cookies, pixels, and web beacons, among other things (see, e.g., Web Beacon).
Although we may attempt to contractually limit what third-party advertising companies and networks do, we have no ability to monitor or control what they do. In the past, some advertising companies and networks have been sued for allegedly using what are called “local shared objects” or “re-spawning cookies” (including by using Adobe® flash cookies). Although we attempt to contractually require that these companies shall always allow the end-user (You) to easily and completely uninstall any means of tracking the end-user without regenerating the means of such tracking, we cannot assure that this will occur and, therefore, You consent to these types of practices. If You would like more information about what many advertising companies and advertising networks do and to know some of Your choices about not having this information used by the companies that are member of the Network Advertising Initiative, please visit Network Advertising Initiative. We cannot assure that all of our third-party advertising companies and advertising networks are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, or that they comply with the policies of the Network Advertising Initiative.
We may employ procedural and technological security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect Your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. REISCOUT may use encryption, password protection, and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to Your personally identifiable information. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF YOUR UNIQUE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES. WE CANNOT, HOWEVER, ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO US, AND YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. ONCE WE RECEIVE YOUR TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION, WE MAKE COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE EFFORTS TO ENSURE THE SECURITY OF OUR SYSTEMS. HOWEVER, PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A GUARANTEE THAT SUCH INFORMATION MAY NOT BE ACCESSED, DISCLOSED, ALTERED, OR DESTROYED BY BREACH OF ANY OF OUR PHYSICAL, TECHNICAL, OR MANAGERIAL SAFEGUARDS. IF WE LEARN OF A SECURITY SYSTEMS BREACH, THEN WE MAY ATTEMPT TO NOTIFY YOU ELECTRONICALLY SO THAT YOU CAN TAKE APPROPRIATE PROTECTIVE STEPS. WE MAY POST A NOTICE ON A REISCOUT PLATFORM IF A SECURITY BREACH OCCURS. DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE, YOU MAY HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO RECEIVE NOTICE OF A SECURITY BREACH IN WRITING.
