Scope of this Policy
This Policy only applies to information we collect through the Site and related websites or mobile platforms, if any, that contain a link to this Policy (each, a “Service”). A Service may also have supplemental terms, including those relating to privacy, which will be provided in additional notices. This Policy does not apply to services that are not provided through the Site, to other websites, applications, or platforms that are not linked to the Site or which are maintained or operated by third parties, such as social media features, or to information we collect from third party sources outside the Site.
The information we collect about you on the Site is either gathered automatically when you access and use the Site or is voluntarily provided by you, such as when you register for a webinar.
Information is automatically collected through a variety of technologies, such as cookies, log files, web beacons, pixel tags, server logs, and customer relationship management tools. This includes, for example:
- Pages you view on the Site;
- Your Computer connection, device information, and IP address;
- Emails from us that you open or forward; and
- Links you click on or connect to.
Additionally, we collect information, including information that may identify you (“Personal Information”), when you provide it through the Site. This includes, for example:
- Contact information, such as name, email address, postal address, and phone number;
- Service and communication preferences and interests;
- Feedback in response to surveys or studies;
- User name and password; and
- Background information, such as employer, job title, education, and professional history,

If you provide us with your email or mailing address, you may receive marketing messages and materials from us, our affiliates or our partners. You may choose not to receive marketing communications. However, we will continue to communicate with you as needed to respond to your inquiries. You can manage communications preferences by using the “opt-out” or unsubscribe mechanism provided within the communications that you receive. You may update your contact information or request changes to your communications preferences by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How We Share Your Information
We may share your information to accomplish any of the purposes above or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. This includes engaging third party service providers to assist us with Site analytics. These vendors may change from time to time, and the type of information that we share varies by vendor. We may share information about the use of the Site, such as pages viewed, IP address, time of day of viewings, and similar Site statistics.
Additionally, we may share Personal Information with our affiliates or partners for a variety of reasons, including:
- Marketing, advertising, analytics, and other customer service purposes;
- The sale, purchase, merger, or reorganization of IDA or acquisition or purchase of another entity, including any bankruptcy proceeding;
- Operating our business, as well as marketing, promotion and communications;
- In response to or in compliance with any law, regulation, subpoena, or court order; and
- To investigate misconduct or a crime, security threat, fraud, or to protect our rights, property, or safety. We do not share your information with non-affiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.
We may use or share aggregate or de-identified information for various purposes, including for marketing, advertising, and research purposes, and as otherwise permitted by law.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
We currently do not honor browser requests not to be tracked; however, you may limit certain tracking (e.g., through cookies) as described below.
- Administering, customizing, and improving the Site;
- Personalizing the browsing experience;
- Advertising, promotions, and surveys; and
- Tracking and analyzing user preferences and trends.
There are a number of ways to manage cookies. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. Please note that if you block cookies, you may not be able to register, login, or make full use of the Site. Additionally, we may still collect information about your use of our services and Site.
Web Beacons / Gifs
We also employ clear gifs (either directly or through one of our third party advertising partners) for Site content analytics. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier used to track the online movements of Web users. Clear gifs, unlike cookies, are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
We also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications, including our marketing campaigns.
Third Party Ad Networks
You may, however, opt-out of many third-party ad networks, including those operated by members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”). For more information regarding this practice by NAI members and DAA members, and your choices regarding having this information used by these companies, including how to opt-out of third-party ad networks operated by NAI and DAA members, please visit their respective websites: www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp (NAI) and www.aboutads.info/choices (DAA).
Opting out of one or more NAI member or DAA member networks, many of which will be the same, only means that those members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on the Site or other websites. For example, you may continue to receive advertisements based on the particular website that you are viewing. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit this opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer, or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt-out may no longer be effective. Additional information is available on NAI’s and DAA’s websites, listed above.
How We Protect Your Information
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we enacted a variety of technical, physical, and procedural measures to help secure it. Despite our mutual efforts, you understand and agree that perfect security does not exist and understand that there is an inherent risk in providing and receiving services over the internet. If you have questions about our security you may contact us at DL-IDA-Info-Sec@symantec.com.
