PRIVACY POLICY

Effective September 14, 2018

When you visit our website or use our services, you have a level of expectation and trust about how we will use and protect your “personally identifiable information” (PII). We take that responsibility seriously, and this privacy policy details how we collect, use, protect, or otherwise handle your PII.

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY. By accessing or otherwise using this website, www.proresource.com, you agree to be bound contractually by this privacy policy.

We may modify this privacy policy at any time, and without prior notice, by posting an amended privacy policy that is always accessible by clicking on the “Privacy Policy” link on the site. Your continued use of this site indicates your acceptance of the amended privacy policy.

Information We Collect

We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our services.

Personal Data

When you visit our website, download resources, or sign up for an event, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information that can be used to contact or identify you, which may include, but is not limited to your first and last name and your email address.

Usage Data

We use marketing automation software and may also collect information about how you accessed and used our website or services. This usage data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, browser version, pages of our website that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages, unique device identifiers, and other diagnostic data. You can opt-out by turning off cookies in your browser settings, but by doing so, may find that certain functions of our website may not work as you expect.

Tracking Data

The LinkedIn Insight Tag is a piece of lightweight JavaScript code that we have added to our websites to enable in-depth campaign reporting and to help us unlock valuable insights about our website visitors. We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag to track conversions, retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about members interacting with our LinkedIn advertising.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP address information, timestamp, and events such as page views. All data is encrypted. The LinkedIn browser cookie is stored in a visitor’s browser until they delete the cookie or the cookie expires (there’s a rolling six-month expiration from the last time the visitor’s browser loaded the Insight Tag).

You can opt out of cookies from LinkedIn on your LinkedIn settings page, and we recommend you read their Cookie Policy for more information.

Our website also uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described in Google’s Privacy Policy- external site and for the purposes set out above. You can opt out of Google Analytics if you disable or refuse the cookie, disable JavaScript, or use the opt-out service provided by Google- external site.

Third-Party Providers

Analytics

We may use third-party providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

As of the effective date of this privacy policy, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic.
