The data we collect and how we use it:
To provide future service and support. Information collected for this purpose is both contact information and information related to products and service/support requested. This information is also used to provide service, product update, and similar notices.
As a result of product download. Users who download products under trial licenses and purchasers of products will be contacted to confirm they did not experience problems in the download process and will also be alerted at the end of the license period. These communications are not subject to the general opt-out of marketing notices.
To select content. Information may be collected to help create Website content and navigation that is most relevant and user-friendly. This includes information collected as a result of site navigation as well as information provided in forms.
To respond to user inquiries and requests for information. This information includes registrations for newsletters and specific requests for further information.
To provide various OptiPro communities, such as partners, with relevant product alerts and updates. Updates are related to product releases, prices, terms and special offers. These updates are only sent out as a result of the customer signing-up for the relevant program or online account.
To better respond to requests for service or quotes for product and equipment purchase. OptiPro will pass contact information to the appropriate OptiPro sales person, distributor or consultant for follow-up related to your request.
To address performance and fix issues. On occasion, patches and other fixes to software, such as security patches addressing newly discovered vulnerabilities, are developed by OptiPro. We may communicate the availability of these patches or fixes to registered owners of software and parties who have identified themselves to us as users or developers. These communications will not contain marketing messages and will not be subject to general opt-out elections, due to the potential importance of these patches and fixes.
As a result of legal requirements. OptiPro may be required to provide personally identifiable information to comply with legally-mandated reporting, disclosure or other legal process requirements.
OptiPro has provided you with the ability to create an account or profile of information. We maintain the information and allow you to update it at any time. To change this information, please log in as usual and follow the prompts to “update my profile.” We continue to work on these methods to increase the scope of information that you may access and update.
While the majority of questions and issues related to access can be handled quickly, a few complex requests may take more research and time. In such cases, access issues will either be addressed within thirty days or you will be contacted as to the nature of the problem and appropriate next steps.
OptiPro is concerned with the security of the personally identifiable information we have collected and has in place reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access to that information. These measures include policies, procedures, and technical elements relating to data access controls. In addition, OptiPro uses standard security protocols and mechanisms to exchange the transmission of sensitive data such as credit card details.
If we are going to use your personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our Website notifying users of the change. In some cases, where we post the notice we will also send email notifications to those users who have opted to receive communications from us notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
