In addition, the INPUT iCenter may collect the email addresses and messages of those who communicate with it via email or who enter email addresses in forms. The INPUT iCenter may collect personally identifiable information when a Researcher registers for access to the Collection, including the Researcher’s name and email address.

The INPUT iCenter may use “cookies” to track Users’ activities on the Site and in the Collection. Cookies are small files that a server transfers to the hard drive of someone who visits a site and that the server can access when the person returns to the site.

The primary source of content for the Collection is body of research-based work generated by INPUT analysts and employees spanning the years 1975 through 2000, however the INPUT iCenter reserves the right to expand such sources through acquisition of relevant materials from key industry participants and/or entities.

The INPUT iCenter may disclose any information it collects from Users if the INPUT iCenter believes in good faith that such action is reasonably necessary to enforce its Terms of Use or other policies, to comply with the law, to comply with legal process, to operate its systems properly, or to protect the rights or property of itself, its Users, or others.
