The information we gather and how we use it

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may use non-personally identifiable information collected from you and other users to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics. These aggregated statistics would be used to improve the Site and for product development and marketing purposes generally. We also may provide such aggregated information to advertisers and other third parties for certain purposes, but such statistics contain no personally identifiable information and cannot be used to gather such information.

Other non-personally identifiable information about your visits to the Site, such as the number of times you have viewed an advertisement (but not your name, address or other personal information), also may be used to serve particular advertisements to you on the Site.

Personally Identifiable Information

The personally identifiable information you provide to us when using the Site may be used to provide products and services to you, to enhance your experience at the Site, and, if applicable, to enhance your experience as a subscriber to Thompson's products and services.

The ways in which we use your personally identifiable information will be set forth, and consented to by you, either when you register to use our Site or when you first use the Site.

We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, "Outside Contractors") to provide specific services and products related to BLR and the Site, such as providing credit card processing and fraud screening, order fulfillment and shipment, mailing of BLR or Thompson HR publications and other materials, hosting and maintaining the Site, and developing applications for the Site. These Outside Contractors may sometimes have limited access to information collected from you, including your personally identifiable information, in the course of providing products or services to us. Access to your personally identifiable information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for these Outside Contractors to perform their limited function for us. We also require that these contractors (i) protect the privacy of your personally identifiable information consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (ii) not use or disclose your personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing us with products or services for which we contracted.

We may from time to time use your personally identifiable information to notify you of special offers and new products and services from third parties that we think may be of interest to you. It is possible that we may rent, sell or otherwise transfer to third parties personally identifiable information about you. At any time, you can contact BLR to request that we not share your personally identifiable information with third parties, as set forth in greater detail below.

BLR may merge your information collected on the Site with similar data obtained from third parties. We may use this enhanced personally identifiable information to notify you of special offers, updated information and new products and services from BLR.

Other unique circumstances may arise where we are required to disclose your personal information to third parties, such as in connection with a corporate transaction where all or a portion of our business or assets (including our associated customer lists containing your personal information) are sold or transferred, or if disclosure is required by law or pursuant to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.

You should be aware that if you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information in an email or other communications with third parties listed on the Sites or in other materials, that information, along with any other information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and correlated and used by such third parties and may result in your receiving unsolicited messages from other persons. Such collection, correlation, use and messages are beyond our control.


If you supply BLR with your email address, you may receive periodic electronic mailings from us regarding breaking news, blogs, new products and services, or upcoming events. If you ever wish to stop receiving such mailings please email us at


BLR takes every effort to protect against unauthorized access to individuals' identifiable information. All information is protected by industry standard encryption technologies and is handled securely within BLR.
