Website info gathering and beyond
Topic Consulting Services, LLC respects your privacy and will never do anything to betray your trust. We are completely committed to ensuring the privacy of your information. The following statement addresses relevant privacy issues for Topic Consulting Services, LLC - No matter what information we collect, we never sell personal information to third parties without your express written permission (in instances where you want us to liaison on your behalf with another service provider).
Why We Collect Information
Like most companies, our web site is used for marketing purposes. Encouraging visitors who may be interested in our services to visit the web site is crucial to our marketing efforts. And, in order to know how well our marketing efforts are working, we track the response rates of each marketing campaign.
When we do know who we are campaigning to, such as when you ask for more information, or respond to an email campaign offer, we want to do an effective job of communicating with you.
We believe that the best way to communicate with potential clients is to request their permission to be an "opt-in" recipient of information. Permission marketing requires you to register with us, in order to receive newsletters or email offers, for example. Regardless, only Topic Consulting Services' staff and authorized representatives (such as alliance partners working closely with us) will ever contact you using the information we have collected.
For some activities, such as receiving a white paper, we may ask you to register with us. These are not explicit marketing activities, and in such cases we require your contact information in order to send you the information. You may always indicate a preference to opt out of marketing communications.
We use an automated system for managing unsubscribe requests. If you choose to unsubscribe or otherwise remove your information from our list, simply by clicking the link at the bottom of the email and following the unsubscribe instructions, our system ensures that you are truly opted-out.
What Information We Collect
For each visitor to our web site, our web server collects the following type of information for statistical purposes:
- Number of users who visit the website
- Date and time of visits
- Number of pages viewed
- Traffic patterns
- Web brower versions
- Originating IP (Internet Protocol) address and ISP (Internet Service Provider)
This is anonymous statistical data and no attempt will be made to identify users or their browsing activities. We use this data to evaluate our website performance and to improve the content we display to you.
You may fill out a contact form on our web site or can subscribe to our newletter at the bottom of every page.
We may also ask you for subscription preferences so that we may send you information that suits your interests, at the notification frequency that you have selected.
Our web site also tracks visitors to specific pages, so that we can see which pages are most popular and what the click-paths are through our site. Anonymous tracking IDs, called cookies, are used to separate out the traffic patterns of individual visitors. A cookie is a small line of text that is stored with your web browser for just this purpose. We cannot identify you from these cookies. However, if you visit the site from a promotional campaign or register on our web site, you may be identifying yourself, and the pages you visit, through contact information that is already in our database.
Through these means, we may try to determine individual traffic patterns in order to identify interest in various services and materials, and in some cases to identify qualified sales leads. We do not use our technology to discover personal information about you that we did not already have, other than your path through our web site.
How We Collect Information
Our web site recognizes you by placing a file (cookie) that contains only enough information to identify you upon return visits. Your web browser may have options to accept, reject, or provide you with notice when a cookie is saved on your computer.
