The trueinfluence.com website may also collect a recipient’s email address to help you to initiate and email the recipient you have selected.

Cookies / Tracking Technologies

We and our publishing partners, affiliates, or analytics or service providers, use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts, to analyze trends, administer the website, tracking users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregated basis.  As to information submitted to, through or on our website, we may likewise use service providers to host content, host or implement blogs and forums, or conduct data and marketing analytics with respect to information captured.

True Influence may use a variety of technologies, including “cookies” that automatically or passively collect information from your computer, mobile device or other technology when you are visiting a True Influence or partner website or on a 3rd party’s behalf when we serve advertisements and store it in log files. Information collected may include data such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, your responses to advertisements delivered by us, date and time, referring URLs and other information normally transmitted in HTTP requests (“Usage Information”). This information may be associated with business profile information about you, such as your industry, company size, and job title. The purpose of this information is to keep the Service updated and interesting to our users and tailor content to each individual’s interests.

A cookie is a small text file stored on a user’s device containing information about the user. We may use cookies to reduce registration fields so that you can receive free content more easily, deliver targeted advertising, or understand your interests and focus areas of research. We believe this enables us to provide users with a more meaningful online experience.

We use Local Storage Objects (LSOs) such as Flash to store content information and preferences. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LSOs. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity use LSOs such as HTML 5 and Flash to collect and store information.

Advertising / Behavioral Targeting; How to Opt-Out

We may use third party vendors to enhance the Service (e.g. for purposes of retargeting).  When you opt out of the Service, True Influence will no longer use or share any of your Personal or anonymous Usage Information, unless you recently submitted Personal Information (within last 30 days) in order to access free content, in which case only the Content Provider associated with the content you recently acquired will have access to your information.

When you opt out of the Service, we place a cookie on or otherwise identify your browser or device (and/or employ similar technology) to prevent future collection of Usage Information. Opting out of the Service is not the same as blocking cookies. When you opt out of True Influence’s Service, we will place a special True Influence cookie on (or otherwise identify) your device or browser in a way that informs our systems not to record information related to your business research activities. If you browse the web from multiple devices or browsers, you will need to opt out from each device or browser to ensure that we prevent personalization tracking on all of them. For the same reason, if you procure a new device, change browsers or delete the True Influence opt out cookie (or clear all cookies), you will need to perform this opt-out task again.

Disabling Cookies

If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can:

  • change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; or
  • set your browser to automatically not accept any cookies

Please note, however, that cookies are used for a variety of reasons, not just marketing-related, so this may adversely impact your online experience.

We may engage companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as our blog and career pages. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.

Sharing of Information
