ShareRight, a program of IHS (“ShareRight") is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy (“Statement”) applies to the ShareRight website (the “Site”) and governs data collection and usage. By using the site, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.


ShareRight collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. ShareRight also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by ShareRight. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by ShareRight for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through ShareRight public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: ShareRight does not read any of your private online communications.

ShareRight encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from ShareRight so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. ShareRight is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the ShareRight family of websites.


ShareRight collects and uses your personal information to operate the Site and deliver the services you have requested. ShareRight also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from ShareRight and its affiliates. ShareRight may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

ShareRight does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. ShareRight may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, ShareRight may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to ShareRight, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

ShareRight does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

ShareRight tracks the websites and pages our customers visit within ShareRight, in order to determine what ShareRight services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ShareRight to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

ShareRight will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ShareRight or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ShareRight; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ShareRight, or the public.


The Site uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a webpage server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Site pages, or register with the Site or the services offered, a cookie helps ShareRight recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ShareRight website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Site features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most website browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ShareRight services or the websites you visit.


ShareRight secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. ShareRight secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.


ShareRight will occasionally update this Statement to reflect company and customer feedback. ShareRight encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how ShareRight is protecting your information.


ShareRight welcomes your comments regarding this Statement. If you believe that ShareRight has not adhered to this Statement, please contact ShareRight at We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
