1. Collection of Personal Information.
2. Use of Personal Information.
3. Sharing of Personal Information.
We share the Personal Information we collect among our affiliates, as well as with certain non-affiliated entities (“Third Parties”) as described below.
Third Party Service Providers.
From time to time, we may enter into relationships with third party service providers to help with certain aspects of our operations, which may require disclosure of your Personal Information to them. For example, we may use a third party to: (a) send information to you or otherwise communicate with you (via telephone, email, or mail) about us or our Sites, such as in our newsletters; (b) help us collect data relating to your use of our Sites; or (c) perform other work that we may need to outsource.
We may disclose your Personal Information in the event that we undergo (or are in discussions regarding) an acquisition, merger, sale, reorganization, consolidation, liquidation, or sale of assets that results in a third party’s acquisition of us or our assets, and your Personal Information may be among the transferred assets in such a transaction.
4. Automatically Collected Usage Information.
We may also collect information (using your IP address, as well as “cookies,” pixel tags, Flash cookies, and similar technologies) relating to the way you use and access our Sites, such as what pages you visit, what type of browser you are using, your IP address, your location, the information for which you search, the domain name of the website from which you came, and, for Sites that are mobile applications, what version of the application you are running and what tablet or mobile device you are using, which in certain cases could also be considered Personal Information. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the internet. A “cookie” is a small data file stored on your computer, not on our Sites, that enables our systems to recognize your browser and store information (such as log-in credentials); you are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but in that case, some portions of our Sites may not operate properly. A Flash cookie (also called a local shared object) is also stored on your computer, not on our Sites, and enables our systems to recognize your computer and store information about your activities and preferences; you can learn more about Flash cookies and how to manage them at www.adobe.com. A pixel tag (also called a web beacon) is an invisible tag on portions of our Sites that, when those portions are accessed, generates a notice with information about the visit, such as the IP address of your computer, the time and date of your visit, and the URL of the website page on which the pixel tag was viewed. We use the information we automatically collect to operate and improve our Sites. For example, we may use anonymous data to identify which Sites especially interest our users as a group, better understand the demographics of our users, or analyze other trends that can help us improve the quality of our Sites. We may share aggregated anonymous data concerning our users with partners or potential partners and others interested in how our Sites are used. By using our Sites, you consent to our automatic collection, use, and sharing of information as described above.
Third parties may collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Sites. If your web browser transmits a “do not track” signal or implements some other mechanism to provide users with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of an individual user’s Personal Information involving online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services, our Sites will not collect such Personal Information from you.
We have implemented reasonable measures to help protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no security system is foolproof and we cannot fully eliminate security risks with respect to your Personal Information. As a result, we cannot ensure that your Personal Information will not be disclosed to Third Parties. You should be mindful of these security limitations when you submit Personal Information to us. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty with respect to your Personal Information, you agree that the standard used to measure our compliance with that duty will be one of intentional misconduct.
6. Other Websites or Applications.
7. Marketing Emails.
8. Updating or Deleting Your Personal Information.
You may update your Personal Information at any time by contacting us at the email address listed in Section 12 below. We will make reasonable efforts to fulfill your request to change or delete your information in a timely manner. We may keep a record of all information that is changed or deleted, and we may determine what may be changed or deleted. For example, if we are required to keep track of certain kinds of transactions, you may be prevented from changing or deleting information relevant for those transactions. Even if we delete or change your information from our live database, it may still be stored on other databases (including those kept for archival purposes). Please note that if you delete certain information, you may not be able to use certain features of our Sites in the future without re-submitting that information. We are not responsible for changing or deleting information about you from the databases of any Third Parties.
9. International Users.
10. Privacy of Children.
Our Sites are not directed at minors. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from, or maintain any Personal Information regarding, persons under the age of 13.
