Personal Information Collected Via Technology

As you navigate our Website, certain passive information may also be collected, including your Internet protocol address, browser type, domain names, access times, and operating system. Like many other companies we also use Cookies and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and the solutions and information for which you searched and which you viewed. This type of information is collected to make our website, services and solutions more useful to you.

An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. We track IP Addresses solely in conjunction with session cookies to analyze our web page flow.

“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a web site sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing a web site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the Website. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions. If you choose to disable Cookies, some areas of the Website may not work properly.

In general, Personal Information you submit to us is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better. We may also use your Personal Information to provide you with The Wisdom of Others surveys, or promotional emails regarding changes and upgrades to our website, products and services and for other marketing purposes of The Wisdom of Others.

We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may use this Anonymous Information to analyze request patterns and usage patterns so that we may enhance our website, products and services. The Wisdom of Others reserves the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in its discretion.


If you provide feedback on our website or any of our products to us, we may use such feedback for any purpose, provided we will not associate such feedback with your Personal Information.
