Since most of the users of our products and Sites are doing so in their capacity as employees or companies, most Business Information we collect will be in that capacity (rather than information about you individually, such as your personal tastes, etc.). For these purposes, we have defined “Business Information” as any information that identifies or may identify a company or an individual contact at a company or that allows others to contact a company or an individual contact at a company. When you visit the Sites, you may be asked to submit information such as e-mail address, company name, address, phone number, your product version and/or areas of interest. We may also ask you where you heard about our company or products, or for other information that will help us understand more about your needs or help us process your requests for information. In addition, we collect credit card and related payment information when you order products, services or support plans online. Our information collection and use practices are described in more detail below.Changes to this Privacy Statement. IIG may change this Privacy Statement at any time by posting the then current policy to the Sites. Your use of the Sites constitutes acceptance of the provisions of this Privacy Statement and your continued usage after such changes are posted constitutes acceptance of each revised Privacy Statement.

Cookies. We may also use Cookies to enhance the user experience, deliver personalized content and collect information about the use of the Sites. “Cookies” are small computer files that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive. Cookies allow us to statistically monitor how many people are using the Sites and for what purposes, how often someone visits the Sites and the length of their stay. This information helps us dynamically generate advertising and information specifically designed for your interests. We also use Cookies to prevent you from having to re-enter your identification and password information each time you visit our Sites. Cookies are not designed to retrieve personal or business data from your hard drive, your e-mail or any other personal information. Most browsers are initially set to accept Cookies, but users can change the setting to refuse Cookies or to be alerted when Cookies are being sent. Although refusal of Cookies will not interfere with the ability to interact with most of the Sites, you will need to accept Cookies in order to access information and use certain functions. For example, Cookies are required to be accepted for access to our Web-based services or desktop products with online features. The Cookies are renewed each time a user logs on to one of the Sites that uses Cookies.

Correcting or Updating Your Business Information and Contacting IIG. You can always update the Business Information that you have provided to us and/or change your preferences with respect to marketing contacts from IIG by contacting the IIG business unit to which you provided your preferences. Please note that it may take up to 4 weeks to be removed from the IIG business unit’s mail lists and 10 days to be removed from e-mail and phone lists.

Customer Profile. We also collect Business Information when you create a customer profile or Passport account on some of the Sites, which is required in order to access certain areas of the Sites, purchase support plans and products, to obtain software downloads and certain online support services and to request information from us about our products and services.. This information includes company name and contact information and other information about your company (for example, size, revenue, and number of employees), the products you may have licensed and other non-IIG products you may currently use. We use this information in accordance with this policy to identify you, process your requests and administer your IIG account(s).

Disclosure of Your Business Information. From time to time, IIG may be required to release Business Information: 1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; 2) to enforce or apply the terms of any of our service or license agreements; or 3) in special cases, such as protecting the rights, property or safety of IIG, our customers or others. We may also provide Business Information to government agencies and to our vendors, suppliers, authorized resellers and other business, development and industry partners (“Partners”) to enable them to: 1) provide us with products and services to better operate and maintain the Sites; 2) provide you with a product or service requested by you; or 3) enable them to market products or services to you. IIG also may provide information about you that does not allow you to be identified to, or contacted by, (“Aggregate Information”) third parties. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of the Sites and the activities they conduct while on the Sites. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge for this Aggregate Information. We may also use this Aggregate Information as part of products or services that we provide to third parties and to improve our products, services and the Sites.

How IIG Protects Your Privacy Internally. IIG wants your Business Information to remain as secure as reasonably possible. We combine industry-standard technical safeguards with a code of conduct for those employees that are permitted to access our customers’ Business Information. When you purchase a product or service online, IIG uses SSL encryption to encrypt your credit card information before it is sent to us in order to ensure the integrity and privacy of the credit card information that you provide to us via the Internet. Many of our Web-based services are hosted on servers that are co-located at a third party facility with whom we have a contract providing for security measures. For example, hosted Services Data is submitted via SSL encryption and stored on a server equipped with industry standard firewalls. Only authorized IIG employees, agents or independent contractors are permitted to access your Business Information, Product Data or Web Services Data. Those employees that violate our Privacy Statement are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination. Despite these security measures, IIG does not represent or warrant that Business Information will be protected against loss, misuse, attacks, or alteration by third parties. Occasionally, an IIG business unit may send you communications to provide you with information or promotions relating to products and services that may be of interest to you, including notification of important product issues and updates. You may opt out of receiving these communications as indicated below. However, please note that any election not to receive future communications applies only to promotional messages of the particular IIG business unit and you may receive promotional messages from other IIG business units until you make an opt out request with that business unit as indicated below. Additionally, we may still send you relationship or transactional messages in order to notify you of important product issues and updates, such as tax and other compliance-related matters, for the renewal of existing subscription services, to resolve specific questions or requests made by you via phone, fax, e-mail or the Web and in response to any activity completed on any of the Sites, including but not limited to, registration, ordering, downloads and requests for information.

IIG E-Mail Promotions. Each e-mail we send will contain instructions on how to unsubscribe in the event that you do not wish to receive future promotional e-mails from the IIG business unit that sent you the e-mail promotion. If you choose to opt-out of receiving promotional e-mail communications from any IIG business unit, we may still periodically communicate with you via mail and telephone. Please allow 10 business days to be removed from the promotional e-mail list of an IIG business unit.
