Please take a moment to read this Privacy Policy and learn about RAB's general privacy and information security principles. This Privacy Policy applies to RAB's website, www.RAB.com and www.RABmarketing.com (the "Website"), which includes the members-only pages that may be provided to you as one of our registered and valued members or as an employee of an organization that has signed our Membership Application and Agreement (a "Member"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites operated by RAB. Other websites maintained by RAB may be governed by separate agreements.

This Privacy Policy applies to the information collected from you while you are using the Website, as well as e-mail, text and other electronic messages between you and the Website. As you use the Website, we want to be clear about the information we collect about you and how we use that information. Different parts of the Website collect different pieces of information, depending upon which features of the Website you are using and if you are a visitor or a registered user.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by RAB or any third-party; or any third-party that may link to or be accessible from or on the Website (including advertising).

For more information regarding use of the Website, please visit our Website's Terms of Use. The Privacy Policy is incorporated into and made a part of our Terms of Use. As part of the Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy constitutes a legally binding agreement between you and RAB. By accessing and using our Website and/or its services, you agree that you have read, understand and are bound by the terms and conditions set forth herein.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY OR THE TERMS OF USE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE WEBSITE OR ITS SERVICES. This Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of this Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Our Website and services are not directed to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children.

This Privacy Policy explains:


What Information We Collect

In general, you can use and visit our Website without submitting any personal information; however, in order to utilize and access other features, you will need to submit your personal information. We collect information from you when you register on our Website, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey, participate in an online course (which may be part of one of the certification curriculums that we offer to Members) or contact us for customer care or technical support. When using certain features on our Website, you may be required to enter personal information, including, without limitation, your name, e-mail address and phone number, answers to questions posed in our online courses, and other information relating to your business and our services. If you have questions about an RAB offering (e.g., our reports, directories or online courses), we may also collect information related to that offering or your use of that offering. For more information on the foregoing, please visit our Terms of Use for the Website, or contact us at legal@RAB.com.

When you visit or interact with our Website, we or our third-party service providers may use cookies and other types of web technologies to collect technical and usage information such as browsing history, language settings, domain name, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, data and time of each visit, and pages that your web browser has visited. Cookies are small files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the website or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information in order to collect technical and usage information such as browsing history, domain name, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, data and time of each visit, and pages that your web browser has visited.

We use cookies to understand and save your preferences for future visits and to compile aggregate data about Website traffic and Website interactions so that we can offer better user experiences and tools to you in the future.

Most web browsers permit you to set your web browser to block or delete all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it's important to remember that our services may not function properly if you set your browser to reject cookies.

We may use a tool called "Google Analytics" to collect information about use of the Website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit our Website, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our Website. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our Website, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our Website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our Website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to our Website by disabling cookies on your browser. We may also use other third-party service providers to track our visitors, including, for example, "Clicky", a service provided by Roxr Software Ltd., which is restricted by the Clicky Terms of Use.

We reserve the right to transfer any personal information we have about you in the event we transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee use personal information you have provided through this Website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. Further, with respect to our educational courses and certifications, we may verify your certification and completion of coursework to requesting parties.
