CompanyWeek, a Colorado corporation, ("CompanyWeek", “we”, “us” or “our”) may revise and update these Terms of Use at any time. The date these Terms of Use were last updated is set forth on the top of this page. Your continued usage of the  Site or any of the services available on the Site, including all levels of subscription data access services, (collectively, the “Services”) will mean you acknowledge and accept those changes. These Terms of Use also governs the sale of CompanyWeek Digital Products (the “Digital Products”), described below.

SITE ACCESS AND USE

Subject to these Terms of Use, CompanyWeek grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to access the Site and use the Services, including any graphics, text, instructions, images, audio files, and/or other sounds, videos, and other materials you may view on, access through, or are otherwise related to the Services (collectively, the “Content”) for your personal, non-commercial use. When using the Site, you agree to comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws including, without limitation, copyright law. Except as expressly permitted in these Terms of Use, you may not use, reproduce, distribute, create derivative works based upon, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, transmit, or otherwise exploit the Content for any purpose whatsoever without obtaining prior written consent from us or, in the case of third-party Content, its respective owner. In certain instances, we may permit you to download or print the Content or both. In such a case, you may download or print (as applicable) one copy of the Content for your personal, non-commercial use only.

You agree not to:

  • collect information from the Services using an automated software tool or manually on a mass basis;
  • use automated means to access the Services, or gain unauthorized access to the Services or to any account or computer system connected to the Services;
  • obtain, or attempt to obtain, access to areas of the Site or our systems that are not intended for access by you;
  • “flood” the Services with requests or otherwise overburden, disrupt, or harm the Services or our systems;
  • restrict or inhibit other users from accessing or using the Services; or
  • modify or delete any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary rights notices that appear on the Site or in the Content.

DIGITAL PRODUCTS

1.  Digital Products

The Digital Products include the website (www.companyweek.com) and certain data products sold as part of certain subscription packages. You are not necessarily required to purchase anything to use the Site. If you do not purchase a subscription or product, however, your access to the Digital Products will be limited. We reserve the right to modify the content, type and availability of any Digital Product at any time.

2.  Subscription

a.  Auto-renewing Subscription. Your Digital Products subscription, which may start with a promotional rate, will auto-renew at the end of the cycle stated at the time of your order (“Billing Period”) unless and until you cancel your subscription or we terminate it. You can view the date of your next scheduled payment by visiting our website and clicking on the “My Account” link. You will not receive a notice from us that your promotional period has ended or that your subscription has auto-renewed.

b.  Differing Subscriptions/Promotions. We offer a number of types of subscriptions, including subscriptions to different Digital Products. You can view CompanyWeek’s subscription packages at www.companyweek.com.  You can find specific details regarding your current subscription by clicking on the Login on the Site. We reserve the right to change or terminate any offered subscriptions or promotions at any time.

3.         Billing

a.  Payment Method. You can pay for your subscription with a major credit card or company check after invoicing. Only credit cards checks are eligible for payment. Do not sign up for a subscription by identifying a debit card in the credit card option. A debit card may also be known as a “check” or “ATM” card and typically has the word “debit” on it. You may edit your Payment Method information by visiting the Site and clicking on the “My Account” link. If your payment is unsuccessful by reason of insufficient funds, expiration, or otherwise, you remain responsible for any uncollected amount.

b.  Recurring Billing. By placing an order for a subscription, you authorize us to charge you the subscription fee then in effect at the beginning of each Billing Period, plus applicable taxes (if any), to your Payment Method. You acknowledge that the amount charged each Billing Period may vary for reasons that may include price changes, changing your subscription, or changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your Payment Method for such varying amount each Billing Period. Applicable taxes may vary. For example, you authorize us to charge your Payment Method the promotional rate disclosed on the subscription screen in the initial Billing Period (if applicable) and the regular subscription rate in subsequent Billing Periods, each with applicable taxes. We automatically charge your Payment Method on the first day of each Billing Period. We reserve the right to change the timing of our billing, in particular, in the event your Payment Method has not successfully settled. If your Payment Method is declined for a recurring payment of your subscription fee, you have five (5) days to provide us a new Payment Method or your subscription will be canceled.

c.  Price Changes. We reserve the right to change subscription fees for any of our subscriptions or Digital Products at any time. We will notify you of any changes if the regular fee for your subscription or Digital Product changes from what was stated at the time of your initial order. You will have an opportunity to cancel your subscription at that time. If you do not cancel your subscription, you will be charged the new subscription fee at your next Billing Period.

d.  Billing Period. We will charge the subscription fee at the commencement of your subscription or, if applicable, at the end of your free trial period, and automatically on the first calendar day of each Billing Period thereafter unless and until your subscription is cancelled.

4.         Cancellation, and Refund

a.  Cancellations. You can cancel your subscription at any time by going to the My Account page. You must cancel your subscription before it renews for a new Billing Period to avoid billing of the next Billing Period’s subscription fees to your Payment Method. That is, when you cancel your subscription, you cancel only future charges associated with your subscription, and you will not receive a refund for the current Billing Period. Your cancellation will become effective at the end of your current Billing Period, and you will continue to have access to your subscription and Digital Products for the balance of the Billing Period.

b. Refunds. Payments are non-refundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used Billing Periods. We reserve the right, however, to issue refunds or credits at our sole discretion. If we issue a refund or credit in one instance, we are under no obligation to issue the same refund or credit in the future.

PRIVACY POLICY

WELCOME

Welcome to www.companyweek.com. This site (“Site”) is owned and operated by CompanyWeek, a Colorado corporation, ("CompanyWeek", “we”, “us” or “our”) and is operated by and on behalf of CompanyWeek. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use and disclosure of information that we may collect from and about you. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this Site.

YOUR CONSENT

By using this Site, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this Site, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use, which are incorporated herein by reference, and any specific provisions of this Site that may be presented at the time information is collected. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, do not use this Site or provide any information.

ABOUT CHILDREN

The Site is a general audience site. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of thirteen on the Site. If in the future, we collect personally identifiable information from children, we will do so in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (15 U.S.C. 6501 et seq.). The Internet offers children wonderful educational and entertainment resources. Your guidance and involvement are essential to help ensure that children have a safe and rewarding online experience. We encourage you to visit the Direct Marketing Association’s Web site (www.the-dma.org) and explore the Get CyberSavvy!

ACTIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

Like many Web sites, this Site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking them specific questions and by permitting them to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forums, chat rooms, blogs and so forth. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number and so on).

Some areas of this Site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features or activities (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, order processing, business opportunities, facilitating business to business networking, information on manufacturers and their products, information on business services and so forth). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

As you navigate through this Site and/or receive emails in connection with this Site, certain information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, including, without limitation, those described below:

COOKIES

As with many websites, this Site uses standard technology called “cookies,” which are small data files that are transferred to your computer when you allow your browser to accept cookies. Cookies automatically identify your Web browser to the Site whenever you visit the Site, and make your using the Site easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, tracking business preferences, product and services preferences and so forth. By tracking how and when you use the Site, cookies help us determine which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the Site are based on data obtained from cookies.

Accepting cookies allows you, among other things, to personalize your experience on the Site. Cookies may also allow the Site to present to you information which may be of interest to you. If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, you generally can opt out of providing this information by turning the cookies off in your browser; however, some areas of the Site may not provide you with a personalized experience if you have disabled the use of cookies.

IP ADDRESSES AND AUTOMATIC INFORMATION

We may collect IP addresses and/or automatic information for purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers and sponsors. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. Our computers identify your computer by its IP address. When you request web pages from the Site, our computers log your IP address.

Automatic information is information collected by our computers when you request web pages from the Site. Automatic information may include such information as the page served, the time, the source of the request, the type of browser making the request, the preceding page view and other such information. When analyzed, this data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the Site, what type of content is most popular, what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising, business interest, networking potential, information capture and areas of interest for tracking purposes, business preferences, networking preferences, activity preferences or the like.

INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES

From time to time we, and/or our operational partners may receive information about you from other sources and add it to the data previously collected about you.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

In general, we protect personally identifiable information collected and except as otherwise stated, CompanyWeek may use information you provide to improve the content of our Site, to customize the display of the Site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, for tracking business preferences, for tracking product and service preferences and for other purposes specified and identified in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this Site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless specified otherwise at the point of collection on this Site. We may combine personally identifiable information with passively collected information.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information:

            i.          to third parties located in Rocky Mountain region, the United States and/or any   other country;

ii.         to our affiliates;

iii.        to our sponsors;

iv.        to Rocky Mountain business and manufacturing organizations;

v.         to select companies or organizations which we believe may offer products, services, materials or information of interest to visitors to this Site;

vi.        to third parties we use to support our business (including fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, chat service providers, email service providers, forum service providers, advertisement sales and management services and financial institutions);

vii.       in connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of the business of this Site to which the information relates;

viii.       in connection with tracking business, product or service interests; or

ix.        where required by applicable laws, court orders or government regulations.

In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this Site that is not in personally identifiable form.

THIRD-PARTY AD SERVING & AUDIENCE AND TRAFFIC MEASUREMENT SERVICES

The Site may use third- party network advertisers to serve the advertisements on the Site or may use a traffic measurement service to analyze the traffic on the Site. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to this Site and other web sites you have visited. Third-party advertisement servers enable us to target advertisements to you for products or web sites in which you might be interested. Although advertisers or other companies do not have access to the Site cookies, the Site’s advertisers, sponsors, and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access their own cookies on your computer if you choose to have your cookies enabled in your browser. Cookies allow third- party advertisers to show you advertisements or content in which you might be interested. Other companies' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.  We assume no liability or responsibility for such other companies.

Visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp in order to learn more about the information collection practices and "opt-out" procedures of third- party ad servers we may use.

ACCESS AND CORRECTION

To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this Site.

SECURITY

We will take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, usernames, ID numbers or other special access features on this Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them and we assume no liability or responsibility therefor.

LINKS TO OTHER WEB SITES

You should be aware that when you are on this Site, you could be directed to other sites beyond our control. For example, if you "click" on a banner advertisement, the "click" may take you off the Site onto a different web site. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and partners that may use the Site’s logo as part of a co-branding agreement. These other web sites may send their own cookies to you, independently collect data or solicit personal information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. If you visit a web site that is linked to our Site, you should consult that site’s privacy policy before providing any personal information. Please note that CompanyWeek is not responsible or liable for the privacy practices of third parties.

OTHER TERMS

Your use of this Site is subject to the Terms of Use. If you choose to use this Site, your visit and any dispute over privacy and data collection is subject to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use including limitations on damages and application of the law, which in this case are the laws of the State of Colorado in connection with governing, construing and enforcing rights and obligations hereunder, regardless of the applicability of any laws that might otherwise govern under the applicable conflicts of law provisions or principles.
