Sites Covered by This Policy
Personal Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect personal information at various times when you use our Products and Services. Your participation is completely voluntary and you have the choice not to disclose any information that we request by choosing not to participate in an offer or by uninstalling our Products and Services.
We provide products that enhance the security of your computer and protect users against viruses. In order to personalize your experience and adequately protect your computer's security, we collect personally identifying information about you and your computer behavior that helps us determine what is a potential threat to your security and what is a legitimate file or program.
When you you pay to subscribe to an Immunet licensed product, we will obtain your name, email address, billing and credit card information (we collect credit card information using a Secure Socket Layer or "SSL" connection). Your payment information is not shared with any outside parties and is only used for the purposes of billing your subscription. Your payment information is securely stored using a secure billing process that is fully PCI compliant (compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
During installation, we may collect information from you regarding current antivirus and other applications you may be running in order to ensure compatibility with Immunet products. We do not share the information with any outside parties.
Immunet Registered Users
If you register as an Immunet Plus user, we collect information such as your name, email address, and password. We do so to provide you with email support, provide relevant product and company updates, provide an email newsletter to product users, offer chances to win Immunet prizes, free Immunet subscriptions, and partner-related products and services. You may opt-out of registration at any time and either use the service anonymously, or remove your email address from our database using the unsubscribe link within the email sent to you. You may also request to opt-out anytime by emailing email@example.com from the email address you wish to unsubscribe from.
Immunet Community Invitations
As a registered Immunet user, you have the ability to invite your contacts to download and install Immunet products for free. We will use the personally identifying information you provide (e.g., your name and email address) to allow you invite other registered users into your Immunet Community. When you invite a user to install an Immunet product, you provide us with their email address, which allows Immunet to send an email to that user on your behalf. We do not share any emails with outside parties.
Immunet Virus Detection
In order to detect viruses on your computer and to minimize the risk that new files you download from the Internet will infect your computer with viruses, we collect information about the files on your computer when your computer connects with the Immunet Cloud. After you install our products, we continue to collect information on new files that appear on your computer and those files which you attempt to execute (also known as Application Files). We do this in order to review whether these files are safe or not safe, and if not safe we notify you through the product that a file is deemed unsafe by Immunet. We also collect copies of suspected viruses from your computer if we do not already have knowledge of them in the Immunet Cloud. We limit our collection to executable files that are most likely to be malicious code threats. Further, in the event of a malfunction or crash in our software we transmit error log data to our cloud in order to analyze it and fix in-field bugs. These files do not typically contain private information. We do not collect documents or other files from your computer, and this collection is done purely in an effort to protect you better. The two protocols we use for these communications are DNS and HTTP.
Immunet Threats Blocked by You
We provide you with an updated number of the number of threats that you have detected and blocked directly on the computers that have installed Immunet Plus and are actively connected to the Immunet Cloud at any given time. We provide this threat count number to you and also to any community members you have invited into your Community. Your name, country of origin, and number of threats blocked data will appear in the Community page for any contacts that you have added to your community. Your contacts will not be able to communicate with you via Immunet Plus and your email address will be kept completely confidential.
Immunet Threats Blocked by Your Community
We provide you with an updated number of total threats blocked by all the people within your community and also by all the people within your country of origin.
Customer Support Information
To provide you with customer support and in order to better respond to your needs, we may also gather additional information from you with your consent, which may include your name, telephone number, email address, and mailing address. We will not disclose any personally identifying information with any outside parties other than our Immunet customer service representatives without your explicit written agreement.
Immunet Customer Surveys
We use information submitted through our Web site or collected through email or online user surveys to analyze the characteristics of our customers and improve our services. We will occasionally provide anonymous, aggregated statistics about our users in reports made available to third parties, or to the general public. These reports will not identify individual Immunet users nor contain any personally identifiable information.
Third Party Partner Offers
If you sign up for Immunet newsletters, join Immunet contests, or send us direct emails, we will collect your contact information to fulfill your request. To unsubscribe, follow the unsubscribe link that appears at the end of each communication.
Immunet Community Support Forum
If you post a comment or question to the Immunet Community Support Forum, or other public forums run by Immunet such as the Immunet Blog or Immunet Facebook Fan Page, your comments and name will appear publicly at your own consent.
Aggregate Information We Collect
When you use our Services, we may collect tracking information such as your IP address, browser type, the type of operating system you use, details about your computer hardware, the applications you have installed on your PC, the domain name of your Internet service provider, and pages you visited on our Sites. None of the information identifies you personally and we do not link aggregate information to Personally Identifiable Information.
Global Unique Identifiers
A GUID (global unique identifier) is a randomly generated alphanumeric identifier used to indicate a unique installation of our Products or Services. We may create a GUID when you install our Products or Services. We use GUIDs to track installations and to enable features and functionality for specific customers who subscribe to our Products and Services.
We employ a technology that allows us to determine the operating systems you are using and to view your computer's registry. Software installed on your computer has unique registry keys. By viewing your registry, we are able to detect whether you have a compatible operating system. We use your registry information to determine whether our software offers are compatible with software already present on your PC. We do not tie registry information gathered to our customers' Personally Identifiable Information.
Third-Party Advertisements and Software
We may also disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our policies or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights, property, users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain service, and improve our Products and Services.
