Information That We Collect: We collect personal information from you when you register to access content and downloads on the Owen Group Sites and when you request information from us about product and services. Examples of personal information are name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, company name, and so on. We collect personal data about those who communicate with us such as e-mail address, user-specific information on what pages visitors access or visit, and information volunteered by the visitor, such as survey information and site registrations. This information is used to personalize our communications with you about products and services that are specific to your needs and interests. Rather than burden you with information that is not relevant or of interest to you, we try to target information that is specifically important to you. At any time, even after you have given authorization, you can opt out of receiving these communications by contacting us at info@owengroup.com. We use the information that we collect to improve the content of our Web pages by incorporating information that is relevant to our clients, to notify customers about updates to our products and services and the Owen Group Sites, and to contact customers for marketing purposes that are related specifically to their needs and interests. From time to time we partner with third-party entities to provide specific services (webinars, events, technical paper distribution). When you sign up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third-party to provide these services.

These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services. Owen Group supplements the data it collects with additional data received from third-party sources, by using data append services. The additional supplemental data consists of contact, company, and industry data, as well as title, department, address, phone number, and updated e-mail addresses. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us send an email to info@owengroup.com with "unsubscribe" as the subject and the e-mail address(es) you would like to unsubscribe.
If you supply us with your postal address online, as well as your consent, you may receive periodic mailings from us with information about new products and services or upcoming events. If you do not want to receive such mailings at any point after your consent has been given, let us know by e-mailing info@owengroup.com. Send us your name and address and we will remove your name from all lists that we use internally and/or share with other noncommercial organizations.

Customers and applicants can prevent their information from being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected and for which consent was given by contacting us at info@owengroup.com. Upon request, Owen Group offers visitors the ability to have their information deleted or corrected for inaccuracies. To have your information corrected, contact us at info@owengroup.com. We will respond to your request within the country-specific time frames, which can range from 5 to 30 business days.

This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date and time stamp, and clickstream data. This data is not considered personal data because it does not identify individual users. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users' movements around the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Legal Disclaimer: We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our legal rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
