This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected online from the users of the compumark.thomson.com, saegis.com, serioninfo.com and thenewsaegis.com websites. Unless expressly stated, this Privacy Statement does not apply to any other website and does not apply to information we may collect in any other way, including offline.

What Personal Information does Thomson CompuMark collect?
We collect information about our users in three ways: 1) directly from the user, 2) from our Web server logs and 3) through cookies. We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources and services that are most relevant and helpful to you.
When you register for our services, we ask you to provide some personal information (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and certain additional categories of information). We keep this information in a contact database for future reference, as needed. We may use the information you provide to offer you Thomson CompuMark's as well as our affiliates' products and services that we believe may be of interest to you. If you do not want to receive such offers, you may opt out (unsubscribe) as described below.
If you contact us for customer support (including through "Live Chat"), we may ask you to provide information about your computer or about the technical or search issues you are trying to resolve. This information is necessary to help us answer your questions. We may record your requests and our responses for quality control purposes.
Web server logs:

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. However, if you prefer, you can set your browser to either notify you when you have received a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. You should understand that some features of many sites may not function properly if you don't accept cookies.
How does Thomson Compumark use the information?
We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. The information we collect helps us administer the site, analyze its usage and to improve its content as well as its functionality. The information is also used for product development purposes and to determine "charge events" and use of certain fee based services (e.g. SAEGIS Custom Search) and to track orders placed by individuals.
How does Thomson Compumark protect the personal information that it collects?
We have implemented certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that such security measures will always be successful.
Who has access to the information?
We will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other customer data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows:
- to agents and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their relationship with us (for example, we may use third parties to help us with promotional campaigns);
- and as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of our business assets, or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.
We rely on some of our affiliates for support of the products and services we offer, and we share some of our back-office functions with other Thomson Reuters companies. Our affiliates are all required to preserve the confidentiality of any personal information they may access.
Your access to some of our services and content is password protected. We recommend that you refrain from disclosing your password to anyone. To prevent unauthorized use, we also recommend that you sign out of your account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work, especially if you share a computer with someone else or if you are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
Consent to Transfer
Our Websites and servers are located in various parts of the world. Therefore Thomson CompuMark may store and process your personal information in systems located outside of your home country. By using our site(s), you consent to such transfer of information. All reasonable care will be taken to ensure data security and adherence to these privacy practices DATA SECURITY We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
