INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT FROM YOU
We may collect and process the following data about you:
Information you give us. You may give us information about you by filling in forms on our Site or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise. This includes information you provide when you register to use our Site, Services or Solutions, apps, subscribe to our services or newsletter, place an order on our Site, enter a competition, participate in discussion boards or other social media functions on our Site, promotion or survey, events and seminars and when you report a problem with our Site. The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and phone number, financial and credit card information, personal description and photograph, country of residence, employer, job title, department and work telephone and fax numbers and answers to personal security questions to enable multi-factor authentication.
Information we collect about you. With regard to each of your visits to our Site or use of our Solutions and Services we may automatically collect the following information:
- technical information, including the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your login information, browser type and version, CPU speed, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform, service provider, screen resolution, location and language;
- information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our Site (including date and time); products you viewed or searched for; page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from or to the page, any phone number used to call our customer service number, a Session ID (a unique identifier assigned to the browser in connection to the Site.
Information we receive from other sources. We may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide. In this case we will have informed you when we collected that data that it may be shared internally and combined with data collected on this Site. We are also working closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers, credit reference agencies) and may receive information about you from them.
TRACKING, WEB BEACONS AND SIMILAR DEVICES
In order to improve our Solutions, Services and the Site and provide more convenient, relevant experiences to you, we and our vendors and agents may use web beacons, and similar devices to track your activities. A web beacon is a small transparent gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. A similar device may be used by which a Solution or Service may send data to a server when a set of user-initiated events occur such as the “Add Subscription” button is clicked. This device is similar to a cookie in that it tracks your visit and the data can only be read by the server that receives the data. It is different from a cookie in that it is not browser-based, may not function as an identification card, and does not store any data on your computer.
While we track your use of the Site and the Solutions and Services (such as the number of downloads, types of Solutions and Services used and downloaded, how many users we receive daily, the Site pages visited), and web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, we do not generally use this information to identify you personally, If you expressly provide consent for the Site or the Solutions and Services to “remember” the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the Site or the Solutions and Services, that unique identifier will be stored on a persistent cookie on your computer and that unique identifier will be linked to your registration information. As a result, your navigation path around the Site and the Solutions and Services will be tracked in identifiable form.
Some Solutions and Services require activation, which tracks information including installation rights and number of installations.
Personal data that users provide about other individuals for tell-a-friend or other referral features on the Site or within Solutions and Services are used by us to send an initial communication to the person whose details you have provided, and are retained in our systems for 30 days in order for us to contact such third parties. If you are invited by someone else to participate in shared editing or viewing of documents, photos, websites or other content, you will typically be required to contact the person who invited you to update, correct or delete the personal data they provided about you. In general, even though we may delete an account you hold with us in these types of shared editing or viewing areas, we may continue to retain information regarding your past actions with respect to content reviews or sharing initiated by others.
We may also ask you to provide information about others such as when reporting suspected piracy. In this instance, we will ask for the person’s or company’s name and contact information so that we may investigate. Personal data supplied in these instances will only be used for the purpose being submitted and the duration of the investigation.
We hire other companies to place our banner ads on other websites. Such companies perform tracking and reporting activities on ads served and user reaction (“third-party advertisement servers”). They do not collect any information other than IP addresses and behaviours associated with those IP addresses on our behalf, and we do not give any personal data to them. Third-party advertisement servers are subject to their own privacy policies. We may also allow other companies to display advertisements on certain pages of the Site or within the Solutions and Services. If you click on these advertisements these companies may place a persistent cookie on your computer which may allow them to display further advertisements to you. It is our policy to require these companies to provide accessible methods for you to disable these cookies. Should you have any complaints about the practices of any of these companies you should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
