OFFLINE CONTACT INFORMATION

You may provide us with your contact information, such as name, title, email address, company name, phone number, general location, and circumstances of collection, in a variety of ways, such as via a business card, through a lead page at a presentation, or at a conference. We may store and use that contact information to contact you or your organization for marketing, send you or our organization support information, product and service announcements, and other business communications, to service our Site and as necessary to perform services for you or your organization once you or your organization becomes a customer. Your contact information may be combined with contact information we collect through our Site and otherwise will be held in the same manner as contact information we collect through our Site, as further described below.

Our intent is only to use your information in compliance with applicable law, and that includes giving you choice on how and if your personal information is used. You may have options about how the personal information that you provide us may be used. You may choose the types of communications you want to receive from us by going to our Communications Page or as may be indicated in the email or other communication you have received.

We have agreements with these companies that contain protections regarding use of your information.

We do not sell personally identifiable information collected via the Site to third party marketers.

However, when you unsubscribe from marketing communications, we may keep your email address to ensure that we do not send you any more marketing communications.

Updates
As noted above, we may periodically update this Privacy Policy. For example, we may update this policy in order to describe how new Web features may affect our use of your information and to let you know of new controls and features that we may provide you. We will not apply changes to this policy retroactively to information we have previously collected unless it offers you greater protection or choice.
