Privacy Statement

Planet Data is committed to protecting the privacy and security of the information it holds. This Privacy Statement explains how Planet Data safeguards information we collect about our customers and website visitors.

Data We Collect

Information You Provide

You may browse our website without providing any personal information. You may choose to provide personal information such as name, affiliation, and contact information in order to register for information or services from us. For example, you may choose to register for webinars or request marketing information. To better address your interests and to keep the information we have about you up-to-date, we may correct or supplement the personal information you provide online with information we receive from other sources.

Automatically Collected Information – Cookies and Web Beacons

Like most websites, we use cookies, web beacons, web server logs, and other technologies to collect information that improves our user experience, measures the effectiveness of our services, and enhances our products. (Cookies are small bits of data placed on your computer that identify your browser to our server. Web beacons, also known as clear gif tags, are electronic images, data, or code embedded in web pages or emails to track and measure usage and activity.)

For all website visitors, we will collect standard web-based data, such as IP (Internet Protocol) address, browser type, referring pages, and ISP (Internet Service Provider). We do not seek to identify users through such data.

How We Use Data

We will use your personally identifiable information to provide information and services to you, as explained here or on the web pages where you submit your information to us and request a response. We may also use that information to provide you with materials about products and services offered by us or our co-promotion partners, such as a co-sponsor of a webinar you choose to attend. Any co-sponsors agree to adhere to these terms in this privacy statement.

We may use customer information that has had names and personally identifiable information removed to understand the effectiveness of our operations or improve our future services.

Your Choices

You have several choices regarding your information. You can choose to visit our website without disclosing personal information. If you subscribe to particular services or communications such as email updates about our services or legal developments affecting e-discovery, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions in the email you receive. If you wish to block our use of cookies, you may do so by following your browser’s instructions regarding cookies, although please note that some portions of our website may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

Disclosure of Your Information

We may share your personal information with co-sponsors of webinars that you choose to register for. We will not otherwise share your personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes, unless you explicitly consent.

We may share personal information with third parties that provide services to help us operate our business, subject to strict contractual requirements that they protect your information. We may also disclose personal information to defend or assert legal rights, in response to law enforcement requests, or where required by law, including subpoenas or court orders.

If we transfer assets or operations in connection with a merger, sale, bankruptcy, or other transaction, we may transfer your information to the acquiring or merging entity.

We will disclose your information only as described here.

Information Security

We use appropriate technologies and controls that help prevent your personal information from inappropriate access, use, loss, or disclosure. If we share your information with companies that help us operate our business, we impose strict contractual requirements on them to protect your information. If we collect or transmit sensitive personal information, such as government identification numbers, via the website, we will encrypt the data.

There is always some risk that unauthorized or illegal access to your information could occur or that transmissions over the Internet could be intercepted.

Information Access

If you would like to access or modify any personal information we may have about you, please notify us and we will make commercially reasonable efforts to make it available to you.


We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18.

Links to Other Websites

If our website contains links to other websites, we are not responsible for the other sites or their information practices.

Updates to this Privacy Statement

We reserve the right to update or modify this Privacy Statement, and any new versions will be posted here. Even if we update this Statement, we will continue to protect your personal information.

Effective Date

This Privacy Statement is effective September 25, 2009.
