Section A. Online Privacy/ Marketing Contacts and Privacy/ License Activation and/or License Registration and Privacy Information Collected from Online Visitors
Information Collected via Marketing Activities
Constructivity will be conducting many different marketing activities by which it may collect your personal information. For example, we may collect contact information at trade shows or seminars, we will rent email and physical mail addresses for marketing campaigns, we may invite the public to download free software from our website in return for providing us contact information, and we do obtain addresses from publications that target the industries from which we hope to attract customers. When we rent lists of names and addresses, we rent them from entities that provide only names of individuals who have “opted in” to receive communications from companies such as Constructivity and we typically do not receive the actual contact information but only the ability to send an email or mailing to the contact from a bonded intermediary mailing house.
Information Collected via License Activation and/or License Registration
At the time customers register or activate their license of Constructivity software, Constructivity collects information such as Company name, shipping address, contact name, contact email address, telephone number, title, role, projects being designed, primary software applications in use and industry sector. Constructivity requests this information because it believes it is important to understand who its customers are and how to contact them with relevant product information. In some circumstances, Constructivity may be obligated to make this information available to third parties who license to Constructivity technology that is included in the products being activated. Such third parties are required to keep such information confidential and are prohibited from using that information for any purpose other than as authorized by us.
