Information Collection and Use
You can generally visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, in certain sections of this Site we may invite you to submit questions or comments. Due to the nature of some of these activities, we may ask that you complete and submit an online form with personally identifiable information such as your name, username, password, email address, phone number, and other contact information. We also may collect the foregoing personally identifiable information from our sales department when you have indicated an interest in our services or have requested a test or demonstration. We also may collect your username, email address and domain name through your use of our products and services.
We use your personally identifiable information to deliver certain services, products or information you have requested and to follow up on such requests, verify your authority to enter certain password protected areas of the Site, send you notices and communications for products and/or services that you have used or that may be of interest to you to improve the content and general administration of the Site, or for transactional purposes. This may include newsletters, product updates, event announcements, and promotional offers. Our third party service providers may contact you for the purposes described in this paragraph.
