With respect to General Usage Information, RMS may use this information to monitor, protect, maintain and improve its website.

RMS does not sell your Personal Information or General Usage Information to anyone. Nor do we provide this information to non-RMS parties to market non-RMS products to you. RMS may share your Personal Information and General Usage Information with:

4. How does RMS protect your Personal Information?

RMS protects your Personal Information by maintaining up-to-date physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. For example, we use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption. In addition, we only allow employees to access Personal Information only when required to fulfill their job responsibilities.

5. Cookies

Like many websites, RMS uses “cookies” to collect information about how our website is used. A cookie is a small data text file which a website stores on your computer’s hard drive, if permitted by your web browser. A cookie can later be retrieved to identify you to us. For example, cookies can securely store a user’s password, identify which parts of a site have been visited, and keep track of past selections.

We use cookies for the limited purposes of enhancing your visit to our website and to enable us to track usage so that we can improve the website and our offerings to you.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to notify you when you have received a cookie, or alternatively, to refuse to accept cookies. However, you may not be able to use certain features on our website if you choose not to accept cookies.

6. Do Not Track

Some web browsers give the ability to prevent tracking of your online activity by setting a preference in your browser alerting websites you visit that you do not want them to track your online activities. This is referred to as a Do Not Track (“DNT”) signal. This is different than blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with an enabled DNT Signal may still accept cookies.

Please note that our websites may not recognize or take action in response to DNT signals from your browser. Currently, there is no accepted industry standard for what a company should do when a DNT signal is detected. In the event a final standard is established, we will assess how to appropriately respond to these signals and we will update this Privacy Policy accordingly. For more information about DNT signals please visit http://allaboutdnt.com .

7. Social Media Features and Widgets

Our website includes social media features and widgets which allow you share articles from our website, etc. These features are usually recognizable by their third party brand or logo and may collect your IP address, and set a cookie to enable the feature to work properly. These social media features and widgets are hosted by a third party and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

8. How can you contact RMS about your Personal Information?

From time-to-time you may receive an e-mail or other communication from us regarding RMS products, services or information which we believe to be of interest to you. If you are not interested in receiving this information, you may follow the instructions on the communication explaining how you may be removed from our distribution list. Alternatively, or if there are no instructions on the communication, you may send an e-mail to info@rms.com requesting removal from our distribution list.
