(h) Providing Personalized Services to You
1. We store information that we collect through Profile Information, Listed Technologies, Calls for Research, Payment Information, and Session Information to create a “profile” of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information to information in the profile, in order to improve the content of the site for you and occasionally to provide you promotions and marketing offers. We use cookies and pixel tags to identify you as a return visitor and optimize and track your use of REX. Doing so helps us provide new and enhanced features, promotions, functionality, services, content, advertising, and helps to improve the quality of our searching technology.
2. We use pixel tags in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We also 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. If you would like to opt-out of marketing campaign emails, you can do so in the “Account Settings” area.
3. We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
4. Some of our business partners (e.g., advertisers) use cookies on our site. We have no access to, or control over, these cookies, and their use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, not the Company’s Privacy Policy.
(i) Business Transfers: To improve the offerings and selection of REX, we may occasionally acquire subsidiaries or particular business units may be bought by or merged with another entity, entities, or individuals. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy notice(s) (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the event that the Company or substantially all of the Company’s or REX’s assets are acquired, all customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets. The Company reserves the right to transfer personal information to a successor in interest that acquires rights to that information as a result of the sale of the Company or substantially all of its or REX’s assets to that successor in interest.
(j) Aggregate Information (non-personally identifiable): We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our business partners (including our advertisers), Users, and potential users. When sharing this information, we do not identify individual Users.
(k) Law Enforcement; Protection of the Company and Others: It is sometimes necessary to release account and other information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, our Users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Under no circumstances, however, does this include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from clients for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this privacy policy. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or (1) to conform to legal requirements or to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other legal process received by the Company, whether or not a response is required by applicable law; (2) to enforce the Company’s TERMS OF USE or to protect our rights; or (3) to protect the safety of members of the public and users of the service.

3. This privacy statement applies only to information collected by REX.
(b) Co-Branded Sites: This Website may contain links to other sites that are co-branded together with a third party. In such cases, the Company may or may not be responsible for the privacy practices of such co-branded sites. If the Company is responsible for the privacy practices, then this Privacy Policy will apply. If the Company is not responsible for the privacy practices and if the third party is not Company’s agent or service provider covered under this Privacy Policy, then the Company is not responsible for the privacy practices of such site. Again, we encourage you to be aware when you leave REX and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
(c) Chat Rooms, Journals and Blogs, Message Boards, Classifieds and Public Forums: Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post information to chat rooms, journals, blogs, message boards, classifieds or any other public forums (collectively, “Forums”), that information can be accessed by the public and can, in turn be used by those people to send you unsolicited communications. Further, you may have the ability to start or join private Forums. It is important to understand that even within private Forums, information may be used by other attendees to send you unsolicited communications. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
(d) Security: The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it including internal review of data collection, storage and processing practices, and security measures, including physical security to prevent unauthorized access to your information. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use the best commercially available means to protect your information, because of the nature of electronic data and interconnected computer systems, WE CANNOT UNEQUIVOCALLY GUARANTEE YOUR PROFILE INFORMATION, LISTED TECHNOLOGY, CALLS FOR RESEARCH, PAYMENT INFORMATION, OR SESSION INFORMATION IS ABSOLUTELY SECURE. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of any and all information at any time.

All such information shall be governed by the terms of this Privacy Policy.
(c) Customer Communication: If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us (other than required service-related announcements described above), then please adjust your account setting regarding email contact preferences (please see your account’s “Account Settings” area).

(d) Cookie Choices: All Web browsers have the ability to accept cookies, reject cookies, or to prompt the user before accepting them. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, COOKIES ARE REQUIRED TO ACCESS REX.
(e) Changes in this Privacy Policy
1. If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will post the modified Privacy Policy on REX to make users aware of what the changes are so users will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and when we may disclose it.
