Cookie Policy

Last updated: 23 May 2018

We use cookies to keep our sites reliable, secure and to enhance your experience. When you accept cookies, this helps the site remember your preferences, registration, collect traffic statistics, take payments for events and provide links to share content via social media.

This policy applies to all websites and web applications which link to this policy and are published by Information Services Group, Inc.

This policy should be read alongside our privacy policy, which explains how we use personal information.

The law states that we can store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other types of cookies we need your permission.

By using our websites (through any device) you agree that this Cookies Policy applies to that use in addition to any other terms and conditions which may apply.

Your current state: Allow all cookies (Necessary, Preferences, Statistics, Marketing). 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may place on your computer or device when you visit a site. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons, pixels or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our Sites are performing and provide statistics on how users navigate our sites.

You can find more information about cookies by clicking here.

What type of cookies do we use?

We use first and third party cookies to provide our services. Whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that you are visiting at the time (e.g., cookies placed by isg-one.com while visiting isg-one.com). Certain cookies are set by a domain other than that of the website you are currently visiting. If you visit a website or we embed functionality into our website from a third party - that entity sets its cookie or reads its cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie (e.g., cookies placed by google.com while visiting isg-one.com).

The cookie options displayed in the consent banner apply to non essential cookies that have been added by us. For example, Stripe and FoxyCart are marked as 'necessary' for our sites as they help process credit card payments. As a third party they are not under our control. They may require cookies in order to function and may also add cookies for their own reporting and include cookies placed by advertising networks (which may change over time). They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as media publishers. For more help and guidance to Opt-out of this type of advertising click here.

Therefore, we advise you to consult the privacy policy and terms of conditions for each of these providers. Below are a list of links (subject to change) to third parties that are used directly by our sites, so you can review their cookie policies and opt-out options.

Bizzabo (Necessary: provides event functionality)

FoxyCart (Necessary: provides payment cart)

Google Analytics/Google Tag Manager (Statistics: provides reports on web usage)

HotJar (Statistics: provides reports on web usage)

LinkedIn (Necessary: to enable receipt of payments to LinkedIn)

ShareThis (Necessary: provides social media sharing of articles - with explicit consent. See use of Social Plugins below)

Stripe (Necessary: provides payment services)

YouTube (Necessary: provides non-targeted videos by ISG.)

Below are a sample list of third party marketing providers that have been incorporated by the above.

MixPanel

Rapleaf

Rocket Fuel

Scorecard Research

SlideShare

Semasio

Please note that the names of cookies and other technologies may change over time. We are not responsible for, and do not accept any liability for, losses or liabilities arising out of or in connection with third party platforms. Your use of third party platforms is subject to the terms and conditions of the third party platform operators.

Use of Social Plugins

Our sites offer you the possibility to use third party social plugins. In order to protect your data, the Social Plugins have been integrated on the website only as a graphic, which in turn contains a link to the corresponding website of the owner of the respective Social Plugin. Clicking on the graphic sends data to the respective provider. If you do not click on the graphic, there will be no exchange between you and the providers of the Social Plugin.

We also have integrated many more social plugins within the Investor microsite of the Homepage:

Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA;

Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA;
