When no login is required, no cookies (session or persistent) are used on any Arbor Research-managed website. Arbor Research-managed websites set cookies only when user authentication (login/password) is used. For user-authenticated sessions, our websites set session cookies to facilitate authentication functionality and enhance the user experience. These cookies are set in memory on our internet servers, are not stored permanently, and are automatically removed from memory within 24 hours. No persistent cookies are used.

We do not partner with or have special relationships with any advertising or ad-server companies. We do not sell advertising space.

We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site, and we utilize industry-standard encryption techniques where appropriate.

Unanticipated Uses

From time to time, we may use visitor information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in this privacy policy. If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.
