Usage of Personal Information
We will always identify the purposes for which we collect and use your Personal Information at the time we collect it, such as when you complete a registration form and we collect such information from you. Your completion of the registration form constitutes you consent to receiving email news about and from InfoVista. When you receive such email notification, you will always have the option to unsubscribe to such notices in the future. We collect your Personal Information primarily to satisfy ongoing service requirements, develop new products, build brand loyalty and enhance our relationships with customers. We do not sell customer lists or other Personal Information. We may also use your Personal Information as otherwise permitted by law.

Distribution of Personal Information
We identify to whom, and for what purposes, we disclose your Personal Information, at the time we collect such information from you and obtain your consent to such disclosure. For example, we may disclose your Personal Information:
  1. to InfoVista for the purpose of assisting in conducting its business and serving its customers and employees worldwide.
  2. to third party service providers with whom we have a contractual agreement, which have comparable levels of privacy protection, for the purpose of (i) performing IT services such as data processing, database services or information technology support; (ii) marketing or providing any of our products; and (iii) storage.
  3. to InfoVista partners when those partners assist InfoVista in satisfying ongoing service requirements, evaluating the potential development of new products, building brand loyalty and enhancing InfoVista’s relationships with customers.

  5. as otherwise permitted by law.
InfoVista does not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. The information practices of Web sites linked to the InfoVista Web site are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

When and How Consent is Obtained
Except when otherwise permitted by law, we obtain your consent prior to collecting and, in any case, prior to using or disclosing your Personal Information for any purpose. You may provide your consent either to us orally or in writing. Your consent may also be intrinsic to the circumstances such as in the case where you provide our representatives with your phone number so that we can contact you. Except when otherwise permitted by law, we will only use the information for the purpose for which it was given. From time to time, we may collect, utilize or disclose your Personal Information based on your consent and as otherwise permitted by law.

You can withdraw consent at any time (unless withdrawing the consent would frustrate the performance of legal obligations) and upon providing us with thirty (30) days notice. However, the withdrawal of your consent may impact on our ability to serve you and to maintain our relationship. In any marketing communications sent to you, we will include any easily exercisable “opt out” function.

In certain circumstances, as permitted or required by law, we may collect, use or disclose Personal Information without your knowledge or consent. These circumstances include, where applicable, Personal Information which is subject to attorney-client privilege or is publicly available, where collection or use is clearly in the interests of the individual and consent cannot be obtained in a timely way, to investigate a breach of any agreement or a contravention of law, to comply with a subpoena, warrant, court order or as otherwise required by law.

Ensuring the Privacy of Personal Information
We remain responsible for all Personal Information to third parties for processing. As such, we ensure that InfoVista and all affiliates and other third parties which are engaged to perform services on our behalf and are provided with Personal Information are required to observe the intent of this Privacy Statement by having comparable levels of security protection and assuring us that they will not use or disclose the Personal Information for any other purpose.
