Protecting your privacy is important to us. And it must be important to you because you have found Ragan Consulting Group’s Privacy Policy.

And because you looking for the Privacy Policy, you must be expecting some legalese. We don’t want to disappoint. Below are statements from lawyers, lightly edited.

Information Collection
When you browse raganconsulting.com and have not registered for any online service from RCG, you browse anonymously. Personal information—such as your name, address, phone number or email address—is not collected by RCG as you browse. RCG may, however, use “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used. Information, such as the server your computer is logged onto, your browser type (for example, Chrome or Internet Explorer), and whether you responded to a RCG banner ad or email may be collected and tracked in aggregate. This information is used for the purpose of measuring response rates to banner ads and email offers.

Registration for Online Reports, Products and Services

In order to provide you with a particular report or other information, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with some personal or company information, including your email address, for purposes such as correspondence, site registration, or participating in online surveys. If you are registered user, we may combine information about your use of raganconsulting.com with certain other information we have about you as an RCG client, information you have provided to us, as well as information available from external sources, in order to customize your online experience and present you with relevant offers and updates. We also may use a “cookie” to enable our server to recognize you as a registered raganconsulting.com user.

Information Use
We may use information you have given us or a company we partner with to, for example, provide a service, measure consumer interest in our various services and inform you about products and services. If you have provided your email address to us, or to a company we’ve partnered with, to make their products and services available to you, you consent to receiving marketing and promotional emails and offers. We may also send you email offers if you have provided your email address to a third party and have actively chosen or requested, on an opt-in basis, to receive email offers from other parties.

These offers may be based on information you provided to us, as well as information available from external sources. These email offers come directly from RCG. You can opt out from receiving email offers from RCG as described below in the section, Declining email offers. When we send emails to you, we may be able to identify information about your email address, such as whether you can read graphic-rich HTML emails. If your email address is HTML-enabled, we may choose to send you graphic-rich HTML emails.

Please note that we do not provide your email address to RCG business partners. However, we may send you offers on behalf of our RCG business partners. Keep in mind that if you take advantage of an offer from a RCG business partner and become their customer, they may independently wish to send offers to you. In this case, you will need to inform them separately if you wish to decline receiving offers from them.

Declining Email Offers
RCG provides customers with an easy means to decline receiving marketing and promotional emails and offers. Although some customers will appreciate receiving notice of these carefully designed opportunities, we recognize the importance of providing you with choices. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these offers from us by unsubscribing through the link provided at the bottom of each marketing email. If you are a free Newsletter subscriber, you will need to unsubscribe through the link provided at the bottom of each Newsletter. All email offers that you received from RCG will inform you of how to decline receiving further email offers.
