Information Collection and Use
We collect personal information that you provide primarily to provide you with or contact you about the services or other matters described on this site.
Personal information may also be collected and used on our behalf by, or shared with, service providers who assist us in the administration, hosting, operation, maintenance and/or technical support of this site or by other third party contractors we retain to assist us in the operation of our business.
We may also collect and aggregate non-personal information (information that does not personally identify you) from users of this site to analyze web site traffic, e.g., determine which web site pages are visited most frequently or what features are most attractive to users or for other reasons, and take action based on the analysis, e.g., improve the site.
At any time, if you do not wish to receive e-mails from us or you do not wish us to use your personal information, you may “opt out” by following the instructions in any promotional e-mail that you receive from us or by contacting us as described below in the section entitled, “Right to Access, Amend, Opt Out.”
How We Gather Information
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
We may use your personal information and interaction information to provide you with targeted advertisements or marketing communications we believe may be of interest to you. For more information about how targeted advertising works, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (“NAI”) educational page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/understanding-online-advertising/how-does-it-work.
You can opt out of targeted advertising by using the links below:
– Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads
– LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/mypreferences/d/categories/ads
– Google: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/anonymous
– Bing: https://advertise.bingads.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/policies/personalized-ads
Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/.
Do Not Track Protocols
The major browsers have attempted to implement the draft “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (“W3C”) in their latest releases. As this standard has not been finalized, the web site is not compatible with DNT and so we do not recognize DNT settings.
Social Media Plugins

To the extent that this site contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Reputation Partners, please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those other web sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave this site and to read the privacy statements and policies of each and every web site that collects personal information.
We follow generally accepted industry standards designed to protect the personal information we receive from unauthorized access or disclosure. No method of electronic transmission, storage or security is 100% reliable.

Category of Personal Information

Purpose of Collection

In addition, the rights you may have under applicable state laws may include, among others, the “right to know”, the “right to delete”, the “right to correct”, and the “right to opt out”.
Right to Know. You may request that RP provides you the specific pieces of personal information that RP has about you; categories of personal information the agency has collected about you; categories of sources from which the personal information is collected; categories of personal information that RP sold or disclosed for a business purpose about you; categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold or disclosed for a business purpose; and the business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
Right to Delete. Certain state laws give residents a limited right to request deletion of their personal information. However, this right is limited by a number of exceptions. Fundamentally, if RP has a permissible need to retain personal information, we are not under an obligation to delete such information, even when requested. Generally, we retain personal information so we may provide a good or service requested by you, or reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform a contract between us and you; detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; or prosecute those responsible for that activity; enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with your expectations based on your relationship with RP; comply with a legal obligation; or otherwise use your personal information, internally, in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information. As such, we generally do not accept requests to delete personal information in its entirety. However, we will respond to requests to remove personal information from some of our systems as a part of a request to close or otherwise disable a membership account.
Right to Correct. Certain state laws give residents the right to request correction of any inaccurate personal information we maintain about you.
Right to Opt Out. You may choose to opt out of the sharing of your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes at any time by submitting a request in writing to our contact address below or using one of the Opt Out tools noted in the “Behavioral Advertising” Section above. Please note that this opt out does not prohibit disclosure made for non-behavioral advertising purposes.
Designating an Authorized Agent. Certain state laws permit residents to designate an agent to manage their rights under those laws. If you would like to designate an agent to manage your privacy preferences, you may do so using the mechanisms noted below under “Exercising state privacy rights”.
Non-discrimination. Certain state laws do not permit RP to discriminate against you because you exercised any of your rights under this section, including, but not limited to, by: denying you access to our services; charging different prices or rates for our services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or imposing penalties; providing a different level or quality of our services; or suggesting that you will receive a different price or rate for our services or a different level or quality of services.
Exercising state privacy rights. If you are a resident of any state affording you the rights described in this section and would like to exercise any of your rights, you may do so by emailing us at [email protected] or 312.222.9939. You may also contact us at the mailing address set forth above. Please note that with respect to any request we reserve the right to seek additional personal information in order to verify your identity and your or your agent’s rights to the data subject to your request.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from any child under 16 years of age. If you believe that a child under the age of 16 has provided us with personal information, please contact us at the address listed below so that we may take appropriate action.
