Privacy Policy



Last updated: July 2020


Exponent has created this Privacy Policy in compliance with applicable law and to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. This Privacy Policy discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the Exponent website, (the “Site”). The terms “we” and “our” refer to Exponent and its affiliates.



This Site is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting this Site from outside of the United States, please note that by providing your information it is being transferred to, stored or processed in the United States, where our data center and servers are located and operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country of residence. By using our Site, you understand that your information will be transferred to our data center and servers in the United States and to third parties with whom we may share your personal information. If you are visiting this Site from outside the United States and do not wish to allow the transfer of your personal information to the United States, you should not use this Site and opt-out of the use of cookies.

We take your privacy and the protection of your personal information seriously. We will only store, process, and disclose your personal information where we have your consent or a legitimate interest and in accordance with applicable law. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it. We do our best to protect your privacy through the appropriate use of information security measures.



We (and our affiliates and authorized service providers) may collect, store, and use any information you provide to us if you correspond with us. 

We also use outside services such as Google Analytics to gather data about our Site visitors. We may sometimes permit our authorized service providers to have access to aggregate statistics about our clients, Site traffic patterns, usage, and related information. Except where you fill out an online form, the information from your site visit does not allow us to identify you (or your household) specifically.

We may share your personal information with Exponent’s successor-in-interest, in the event of the sale, assignment, merger, or other transfer of all or a portion of Exponent or its assets to such entity (including due to a sale in connection with a bankruptcy or dissolution). We will require any such purchaser, assignee, or other successor to honor the terms of this privacy statement.

We do not allow third-parties to collect personally identifiable data about your online or mobile activities over time and across different web sites or mobile devices when you use the Site. 

We also will not sell your personal information.

Where required by applicable law, we will rely on your consent for collecting your personal information.



The Site contains links to other sites. Exponent is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such other websites, including any sites that may indicate a special relationship or partnership with us (such as an Exponent partner or sponsor). We do not share information we gather with other websites or any other entities or individuals unless such sharing is approved in advance by you. Other linked websites, however, may collect personal information from you that is not subject to our control. To ensure the protection of your privacy, always review the privacy policy of the websites you may visit by linking from the Site. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to the Site, and not to other companies’ or organizations’ websites to which we link.

For instance, information collected through Google Analytics is shared with Google and its partners who may combine it with other information you’ve provided to them or they’ve collected from your use of their services. This information will be stored in Google’s servers in the United States of America according to Google’s privacy practices and policies.



If you share material from the Site on social media, you are advised that we do not control how your personal information is collected, stored or used by such third-party social media platforms or websites, or to whom it is disclosed. You should review the privacy policies and settings on any social networking platform or website that you subscribe to so that you understand the information they may be collecting and sharing. If you do not want your social networking sites to share information about you, you must contact that particular social media platform website and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt-out of sharing such information. Exponent is not responsible for how these third-party social media platforms or websites may use information collected from or about you.



Exponent may disclose personal information when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating any agreement with Exponent, or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose information in response to a subpoena, search warrant, in connection with judicial proceedings, or pursuant to court orders, legal process, or other law enforcement measures. Exponent may disclose or access personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, to establish our legal rights or to defend against legal claims, and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.



Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Because uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not yet been adopted, Exponent does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.



The U.S. federal Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (“COPPA”) regulates online collection of information from persons under the age of 13. It is our policy to refrain from knowingly collecting or maintaining personally identifiable data relating to any person under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not supply any personally identifiable data through the Site. If you are under the age of 18 and have already provided personally identifiable data through the Site, please have your parent or guardian contact us immediately at so we can remove such information from our files.



We only collect the personal information necessary to fulfill the purposes identified to you prior to or at the time of collection, or any other reasonable and legitimate purposes or as required by applicable law.

We do not use or disclose your personal information, except for the purposes for which it was collected, new purposes to which you have consented, or as required or permitted by applicable law.

We do not, as a condition of providing services to you or on your behalf, or as an administrative or management requirement, require consent to the collection, use or disclosure of personal information beyond that reasonably required for such purposes or to comply with our obligations under applicable law.



We may keep a record of your personal information, including correspondence or comments, in the applicable file specific to you. We will utilize, disclose, or retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and for legal or business requirements. When personal information is retained to make a decision about you, we will retain such information for the period required in order to comply with our internal compliance and data retention policies.



Personal information is generally located at our offices in the United States. A list of affiliates to which this Privacy Policy applies is available upon request. Please direct all questions, inquiries, or complaints regarding personal information, the Privacy Policy, and the Cookies Policy to



Exponent may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time as we add new features and services, as laws change, and as industry privacy and security best practices evolve. We display an effective date on this Privacy Policy at the top of this Privacy Policy so it will be easier for you to know when there has been a change. Changes will apply to information collected after the change is effective. Please check this Privacy Policy periodically for changes. Small changes or changes that do not significantly affect individual privacy interests may be made at any time and without prior notice. Your use of the Site constitutes acceptance of the provisions of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service, and your continued usage after such changes are posted constitutes acceptance of each revised Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or any revised Privacy Policy, please exit the Site immediately.
