Effective December 19, 2008
This website (the "Site") is operated and maintained by the Palo Alto Research Center Incorporated ("PARC"€ť).
At PARC, privacy on the Site means that
It is not necessary to provide any personally identifiable information when you visit the PARC Site.
In general, the Site automatically gathers certain usage information on PARCâ€™s server logs including your IP address; what web page you've last visited; computer and connection information such as browser type and version, operating system and platform; and the frequency of your visits to the Site. If you register on the Site, PARC may ask for your name, email address, company name, mailing address, and information about your interests and preferences. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to PARC.
PARC may use this personal information to help customize the content that you see and to contact you.
PARC may send you unsolicited information, including email, unless you advise PARC during the registration process that you do not want to receive these types of correspondence from PARC.
A cookie is a small file that a website puts on a user's hard drive. This file identifies specific information about previous visits to the site.
The cookie information that PARC collects helps PARC track the number of visitors to the Site over time and determine whether these were new or repeat visits.
Most browser applications allow you to block or
the features on the Site.
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, PARC has put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information PARC collects online.
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, PARC never collects or maintains information at the Site from those PARC actually knows are under 13, and no part of the Site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Under California law,
California residents can now ask companies with whom they have an established
business relationship to provide certain information about the companies'
sharing of personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes
during the past year.
PARC's policy is to share your personal information for direct marketing purposes only with your informed consent. With your consent, from time to time, PARC may provide its partners with your personal information for purposes of marketing relevant services, products and programs to you. If you previously provided such consent but no longer wish your personal information to be shared, please contact us and you can change your preference and opt out without charge.
