My Research Lab Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to all websites under the My Research domain, including the mobile optimized versions of these websites, collectively known as Sites. Except where otherwise noted, statements in this Privacy Policy with respect to the Sites also apply to the My Research Lab Device Applications (Apps) for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices which include My Research Lab Mobile. The Sites and Apps are referred as the My Research Lab Network. References to “we”, “us”, “our”, refer to My Research Lab.

This Privacy Policy describes how we may collect, use, and disclose information about users of the Services. The Services for the purposes of this Privacy Policy means the Sites, Apps, and all information and Services provided to you in connection with your use of the Sites and Apps including, but not limited to, news, reference content, tools, applications, sponsored programs, advertising, email and SMS communications, email, SMS or in-app notifications, as well as your posts on any My Research Lab sponsored forum and/or Social Media sites. We may share information collected under this Privacy Policy among the respective Sites and Apps that we each own or control, but information collected under this Privacy Policy is always protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Information That We Collect

In this section of our Privacy Policy, we discuss the information we may collect about you in connection with your use of the Services, which can include “Business Information” (i.e. information that we can use to identify your business, such as business name, address or emails address), "Personal Information" (i.e., information that we can use to identify you, such as your name or email address) and "Non-Personal Information" (i.e., information that we do not use to identify you). As described below, we may associate Non-Personal Information with Personal Information and upon doing so such information will become Personal Information.

We use web beacons and cookies to: (i) track usage of the Services; (ii) help us deliver more relevant advertising and content to users of the Services; (iii) assess which Services our users access; and (iv) track who has opened our emails or read our notifications.

Third parties under contract with My Research Lab may use cookies or web beacons to help My Research Lab deliver advertising to you on properties within the My Research Lab Network and on properties outside of the My Research Lab Network. Advertisers that market to you through the Services may use their own cookies, web beacons or other online tracking technologies in the sponsored content served to you, including, but not limited to, banner advertisements, sponsored links, emails and pages on the Site ("Brand Pages") that consist solely of advertisements or other content from our advertisers. Some advertisers use companies other than My Research Lab to serve their sponsored content on their behalf and to monitor users' responses to this content. These companies ("Ad Servers") may also collect Non-Personal Information through the use of cookies or web beacons. Additionally, an advertiser may include tracking technology in its advertising content delivered on the My Research Lab Network that would enable the advertiser to obtain Personal Information about you, including the fact that you saw the advertisement, to the extent that you have separately provided consent to the advertiser or to the third party providing the tracking technology. While we generally permit the use of these third party cookies on the assumption that they comply with our Advertising Policy and we assist our advertisers with the placement of cookies or beacons on Brand Pages, we do not have control over these third parties' use of cookies or web beacons or how they manage the Non-Personal Information they gather through them and we may be unable to verify compliance with our Advertising Policy.

How We May Use Your Information

In this section of our Privacy Policy, we discuss how we may use the Personal Information and Non-Personal Information that we collect about you.

Disclosure of Your Information to Third Parties

Security of Information

We have implemented technology and security policies and other measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We also require that all of our employees and others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.

We use security methods to determine the identity of registered users, so that appropriate rights and restrictions can be enforced for that user. Reliable verification of user identity is called authentication. We use both passwords and usernames to authenticate users. Users are responsible for maintaining the security of their My Research Lab login credentials.

Access to Information and Choices

Note to Users Outside of the United States

My Research Lab Network sites are located in the United States. We will collect, store, and process your information that we obtain from the use of the Services in the United States and these activities shall be governed by applicable United States laws and regulations and this Privacy Policy. The information may be available to the United States government or its agencies under legal process made in the United States. In addition, we may transfer your information outside the United States to service providers and customers with operations in other countries. By using the Services, you consent to such collection, storage and processing in the United States and elsewhere, though the United States and other jurisdictions may not afford the same level of data protection as considered adequate in your own country. We will take reasonable steps to protect your information.

Children's Privacy

The My Research Lab Network and the Services are designed and intended for use by adults, and are not intended for nor designed to be used by children under the age of 18. We do not collect Personal Information from any person we know is under the age of 18.

Privacy Policy Changes

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time and any changes will be effective upon posting of the modified Policy unless we advise otherwise. If we make any material changes to this Policy we will notify you by email (sent to the email address included in your account profile) and/or by means of a notice on the My Research Lab Network at the time that the change becomes effective. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy for the latest information on our privacy practices. If you do not accept the terms of this Privacy Policy, we ask that you do not register with us and that you do not use the Services.
