The personal data we collect depends on how you interact with us, the services you use, and the choices you make.

As further described in the Cookies, Mobile IDs, and Similar Technologies section below, our websites and online services store and retrieve cookie identifiers, mobile IDs, and other data.
• Geolocation data. Depending on your device and app settings, we collect precise geolocation data when you use our online services.

We automatically log your activity on our websites and other online services, including the URL of the website from which you came to our sites, pages you viewed, how long you spent on a page, access times, and other details about your use of and actions on our website.

COOKIES, MOBILE IDs AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are small text files placed by a website and stored by your browser on your device. A cookie can later be read when your browser connects to a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. The text in a cookie contains a string of numbers and letters that may uniquely identify your device and can contain other information as well. This allows the web server to recognize your browser over time, each time it connects to that web server.
We, and our analytics and advertising partners, use these technologies in our websites and online services to collect personal data (such as the pages you visit, the links you click on, and similar usage information) when you use our services, including personal data about your online activities over time.
This information is used to store your preferences and settings, enable you to sign-in, analyze how our websites perform, track your interaction with the site or app, develop inferences, deliver, and tailor interest-based advertising, combat fraud, and fulfill other legitimate purposes. We and/or our partners also share the information we collect or infer with third parties for these purposes. The Disclosure section of this Policy provides additional details about the third-party analytics and advertising providers we use on our websites.
Our advertising and analytics partners may participate in associations that provide simple ways to opt out of analytics and ad targeting, which you can access at:
- United States: NAI (http://optout.networkadvertising.org) and DAA (http://optout.aboutads.info/)
These choices are specific to the browser you are using, so if you access our services from other devices or browsers, also visit these links from those to ensure your choices apply to the data collected when you use those devices or browsers.
Browser cookie controls.
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can go to your browser settings to learn how to delete or reject cookies. If you choose to delete or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our website. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and may need to be recreated.
Mobile advertising ID controls.
iOS and Android operating systems provide options to limit tracking and/or reset the advertising IDs.
Email Web Beacons
Most email clients have settings which allow you to prevent the automatic downloading of images, which prevents the automatic connection to the web servers that host those images.
Do Not Track and opt-out preference signals.
Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, our websites do not currently respond to browser DNT signals. Instead, you can use the range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the cookie controls and advertising controls described above.
OUR USE OF PERSONAL DATA
We may combine data we collect from different sources to achieve these purposes and to give you a more seamless, consistent, and personalized experience across our services.
Third-party analytics and advertising companies also collect personal data through our websites and apps, including geolocation data, usage data, and inferences associated with identifiers and device information (such as cookie IDs, device IDs, and IP address) as described in the Cookies section of this Policy. For example, we use Google Analytics on some of our websites to help us understand how users interact with our website; you can learn how Google collects and uses information at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners.
RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA
We retain personal data for as long as necessary to provide the services and fulfill the transactions you have requested, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and other legitimate and lawful business purposes. Because these needs can vary for different data types in the context of different services, actual retention periods can vary significantly based on criteria such as user expectations or consent, the sensitivity of the data, and our legal or contractual obligations.
SECURITY OF PERSONAL DATA
We have implemented appropriate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to help protect personal data from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, no data transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so you should take care in deciding what information you send us in this way.
CHILDREN’S PERSONAL DATA
The services are not intended for use by individuals under the age of 13 (a “child”), and Acclara does not knowingly collect personal data from children. Consistent with the requirements of applicable law, if we learn that a child has improperly provided us with personal data, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or the child’s parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he or she cannot use the services and that we will subsequently delete that information.
