Internet Privacy Policy
Technology and new marketing practices have increased the amount of customer information collected and shared in today’s marketplace. The Marcus Buckingham Company maintains a firm commitment to protect the privacy of the information you share with us; the following document will disclose the privacy principles and practices we follow.
This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date set forth above and is only applicable to the website where this Privacy Policy is posted (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy is not applicable to any other website that you may be able to access from the Site, including the StandOut web site, which may have its own data collection and use practices and policies. By visiting the Site, you consent to the collection, use, storage, deletion and disclosure of information relating to you as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected
The Marcus Buckingham Company, as a part of offering services on this Site, collects certain information. Information is collected in two ways: (1) automatically via the operation of the Site’s servers, software, and the web browser you use to connect to these services, and (2) voluntarily when you directly share your information with us via input from you to forms and other features of the Site. The information we collect is limited to such information as is necessary to provide you with the highest level of customer service, and with access to those services you have chosen to utilize on the Site.

Automatically collected information includes your “IP Address”, the physical location from which you accessed our Site, and certificate information from your browser, which is used by secure areas of our Site. We do not associate any such information with records containing any personal information submitted to us, so you remain anonymous when you browse our Site. Anonymous browsing information may be used to gather broad demographic information. This information may be aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent, page views, and other statistics about users of our Site. We also may use this data to monitor our Site’s performance, to analyze how users use the Site and to make our Site easier and more convenient to use.

Voluntary information collected may include information you provide to us when you use any of our online tools, including signing up for a webinar or demo, when you send us email or use the “Contact Us” form, when you make a purchase, or when you use future products and tools such as may be offered from time to time. We may collect personal information such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, company name, zip code and state. If you make a purchase, we will also collect billing information, such as billing name, address, phone number and credit/debit card information.

Google Analytics
The Site uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits the Site and what pages are being viewed.

Use of Collected Information
We employ cookies in certain areas of the Site to allow us to provide information to make your online experience more convenient. For example, when you return to the Site after logging in, cookies provide information to the Site so that the Site will remember who you are on subsequent visits, speeding up or enhancing your experience of the Site by, for instance, tailoring content to you. Cookies also prevent items placed in a shopping basket from disappearing by the time you checkout.

We also employ web beacons to capture statistical usage information. We do not use web beacons to collect personal information about you. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on our web pages.

Voluntarily provided information is used to provide you with the products and services you request. We also may use contact information we collect to communicate with you, to respond to your questions and requests, and to send you information about our company or promotional materials concerning our partners.

Identification information, such as account numbers, user ids, and passwords, may be used to positively identify you to our computer systems and to customize your experience of the Site to your individual preferences.
We will share personal information if we have a good faith belief that (i) access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, such as a court order or subpoena, or a request by law enforcement or governmental authorities, (ii) such action is appropriate to enforce our Terms of Use our Site, including any investigation of potential violations thereof, (iii) such action is necessary to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues associated with our Site, or (iv) such action is appropriate to protect the rights, property or safety of The Marcus Buckingham Company, its employees, users of our Site or others.

If we become involved in a merger, acquisition or other transaction involving the sale of some or all of our assets, user information, including personal information collected from you through your use of the our Site, could be included in the transferred assets. Should such an event occur, we will use reasonable means to notify you through email and/or a prominent notice on the Site.

We may share your personal information with service providers that we engage for the purpose of processing information on our and your behalf. For example, we may partner with other companies to process payments for the online store. Additionally, we may partner with other companies to process, analyze, and/or store data. While providing services for us, these companies may access your personal information. To the extent applicable, we require these entities to comply with this Privacy Policy and appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

Except as set forth in this Privacy Policy, The Marcus Buckingham Company does not share the personal information collected online with any person or entity other than those affiliated with The Marcus Buckingham Company.

Access to Information
Only those employees who need and require customer information to perform their duties are authorized to access customer information. Information shared with business partners is limited to only that information necessary to allow them to provide you with information regarding services and products in which you may have an interest. Additionally, we require that companies we select as business partners honor our privacy requirements in the handling of customer information we provide to them.

Occasionally, we may be compelled by law to provide information to requesting legal entities or agencies. If we receive a subpoena or similar legal process demanding release of any information about you, we will generally attempt to notify you before we comply with the request (when practicable or unless we believe we are prohibited from doing so). Except as required by law or as described above, we do not share information with requesting outside parties, including government agencies.

Protecting Your Information
We take our responsibility to protect the privacy and confidentiality of customer information very seriously. The personal information that you provide to us is stored on servers, which are located in secured facilities and protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the security of such information. We have procedures in place and observe strict security practices that limit employee access to your personal information to those employees with a specific business reason to know this information.
However, no server, computer or communications network or system, or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through the use of our Site and you acknowledge and agree that you provide such information and engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will endeavor to maintain its security on our systems.
