Our Web servers collect and track IP addresses and resolves them to a domain name, but we do not collect personally identifiable information unless we explicitly ask you to provide it. Some pages in our Web sites ask you to provide personal information to order a product or service, or to take advantage of other opportunities (e.g., download a white paper). When this information is requested, you will be asked to complete a form and return it to us. The type of information we ask you to provide will vary according to the product or service that you request. The choice to share this information is always yours, but if you choose to withhold it, you will not be able to access certain resources. In addition, we sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Web sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we make it possible for users to define usage preferences (“remember settings”) to speed requests such as search queries in future visits.
Occasionally, we give our subscribers an option to receive updates and product information. If you would prefer not to receive such notifications, you can opt-out by selecting the appropriate box.
