Your privacy is important to Thomson Reuters, and we go to great lengths to protect it. This Privacy Statement applies to the online collection of personal information via the Thomson Reuters Expert Witness Services websites and mobile applications operated by Thomson Reuters and its worldwide affiliated companies and subsidiaries. This Statement does not apply to information collected in any other way, including offline.
This website may contain links to sites maintained by others. This Privacy Statement does not reflect the privacy practices of those sites.
We collect information about our users in three ways: directly from the user, from our web server logs, and through cookies. We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. We don’t share any of the information you provide with others, unless we say so in this Privacy Statement, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
When you register for our services or order products via our site, we ask you to provide some personal information, for example, your name, address, phone number, email address, payment card information, employment information and work history and/or certain additional categories of information resulting from use of our websites and services that will assist us in finding a consulting or speaking engagement for you, or providing you with an expert in response to your request. We keep this information in a contact database for future reference, as needed. In an effort to present consulting or speaking engagements to registered experts, we may present the information you submit to those seeking an expert for their business purposes and as may otherwise be described in this policy, other applicable agreements, or at the time we collect the information from you.
Information you submit (including personal information, work history, experience, education, and the like) and content (CV, personal image) can be shared with third parties, in particular entities seeking experts in your field. By registering on the Thomson Reuters Expert Witness Services site, your information will automatically be entered into our database which is made available to select third parties. If you do not wish to have your information made available and shared with third parties, you should not register or submit content on this site.
If you contact us for customer support, we may ask you to provide information about your computer or about the issues you are trying to resolve. This information is necessary to help us answer your questions. We may record your requests and our responses for quality control purposes.
Some Thomson Reuters’ websites make chat rooms, forums, message boards, or news groups available to you. Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas is public. You should exercise caution when disclosing personal information in these areas. Don’t disclose information in these public forums that might be considered confidential.
When you visit our website, we may track information about your visit and store that information in web server logs, which are records of the activities on our sites. Our servers automatically capture and save the information electronically. Examples of the information we may collect include:
The information we collect in web server logs helps us administer the site, analyze its usage, protect the website and its content from inappropriate use, and improve the user’s experience.
We have implemented certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, some of our websites are protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Also, we store the information about you in a data center with restricted access and appropriate monitoring, and we use a variety of technical security measures to secure your data. In addition, we use intrusion detection and virus protection software. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.
Also, please note that we may store and process your personal information in systems located outside of your home country. However, regardless of where storage and processing may occur, we take appropriate steps to ensure that your information is protected, consistent with the principles set forth under this statement.
We will not sell, rent, or lease mailing lists or other customer data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties, except as follows:
We also rely on some of our affiliates for support of the products and services we offer, and we share some of our back-office functions with other Thomson Reuters companies. Our affiliates are all required to preserve the confidentiality of any personal information they may access.
We may also use statistics regarding usage for product development purposes, but we only use those statistics in the aggregate and they don’t include any personally identifiable information about individual users.
Your access to some of our services and content may be password protected, such as via OnePass. We recommend that you refrain from disclosing your username(s) and password(s) to anyone. We also recommend that you sign out of your account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work, especially if you share a computer with someone else or if you are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
You may cancel your registration or update your preferences at any time. If you don’t want to receive information about our products or services, please update your account preferences (where available), check the appropriate box when registering, and/or utilize the “unsubscribe” mechanism within the communications that you receive from us.
If you have any additional questions or concerns related to this statement and/or our practices, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail your request to Online Marketing at 610 Opperman Drive, D5-N884, Eagan, MN 55123-1396.
