Privacy Policy

Last updated February 12, 2016

Your privacy is our priority. Nexant understands that information protection is important to you, especially in today’s online environment. With Nexant's Privacy Policy, we want to emphasize our commitment to privacy and let you know that we use any personal information provided to us responsibly to provide you with the services you request.

This Privacy Policy applies to personal information we obtain from individuals interacting with Nexant and its websites (including NexantThinking® Online).  This Policy does not apply to personal information we obtain in our capacity as an employer.

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we post changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy.  We recommend that you check our website from time to time for any changes in this Privacy Policy.  By using this website, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy and to the collection and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Information Collected on our Websites. We use your personal information to build and maintain a relationship with you. We do not sell your personal information. In general, you can visit this website without telling us who you are or providing any personal information about yourself.  In a few areas on our site, we ask you to provide information to enable us to contact and communicate with you, and tailor the content we provide to you.  The information we collect includes your name, address, email address, your company’s name and its type of business, and your title. It is completely optional for you to participate.

When you subscribe to NexantThinking® Online, a user account name and password will be created by us once you have provided your name, company name, title, and email address.  This user account enables us to provide you with online access to subscription reports that you have purchased from us.

Use & Sharing of Information. We will keep your personal information confidential and will only use it to respond to your requests for information, to help you quickly find information on our site, and to otherwise communicate with you about our products, events, and services. Agents, contractors, and third party service providers of Nexant who have access to your personal information and prospect information are required to keep the information confidential and not use it for any other purpose than to carry out the services they are performing for Nexant. We may enhance or merge your information collected at our site with data from third parties for purposes of tailoring the information we communicate to you.

We will not give or sell your personal information to any outside organization (other than our third party service providers in connection with services provided to Nexant – see below) without your consent.

We may be required to disclose personal information, as well as information collected via cookies or web beacons as described below, in connection with law enforcement, fraud prevention, regulation, and other legal action, or if we reasonably believe it is necessary to do so to protect Nexant, its customers, or the public; in those cases, we will comply with such requirements.

Communicate with You about a Conference or Event. Nexant may collect personal information from you at a conference or event such as email addresses, first and last name, company name, and phone number.  This is information you voluntarily provide to Nexant, typically in the form of a business card.  Nexant may share this information internally for marketing purposes.  In turn, Nexant may communicate with you about a conference or event Nexant attended, hosted, or co-sponsored. This may include information about the event's content, logistics, payment, updates, and any additional meetings, special demonstrations or other customer facilitation that we may provide related to your event registration

Opt-out & Unsubscribe. Periodically, we may send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. If you do not want to be included on our marketing list, you can opt-out through the unsubscribe link contained in our emails or other instructions in our marketing materials, or by contacting us in accordance with the “How To Contact Nexant” section below.  .

Nexant is not responsible for the privacy practices of the websites that it does not operate. These third-party websites may independently solicit and collect personal and non-identifying information from you and, in some instances, provide us with information about your activities on those sites. We recommend that you consult the privacy statements of all third-party websites you visit to understand their practices with regards to privacy.
