What are cookies?
A cookie is a small data text file that a web site sends to your browser, which is then stored on your computer. The cookie
is unique to the computer you are using and can only be read by the web site that placed the cookie on your computer.
We cannot access cookies sent by other web sites or the information contained therein. Additionally, we cannot learn
your email address or any other information about you using a cookie. The only way we would learn such information
is if you specifically and voluntarily submit that information to us, for example, through a registration system,
or by entering a sweepstakes or promotion.
We could use an advertising server developed by a third party to display ads on the Site. Some of these ads may contain
cookies that are sent by third parties (e.g., advertising agencies or advertising clients). We do not have access
to these cookies or any information that they contain. We encourage you to contact the advertiser or its privacy
policy for more information on these cookies. Links from other web sites that appear on the Site may also send cookies;
but we do not control such activities. If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising, click here and here
(if located in the European Union, also click here). Please note you will continue to receive generic ads.

retyping your email address and password each time you access the Site.
May I decline to accept a cookie? You may decline to accept persistent cookies sent by the Site by selecting
an option on your browser to reject cookies. You may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive
information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You should always allow session cookies. If you do not
allow session cookies, many areas of the Site will not be accessible to you. Session cookies enable us to send your
request to the appropriate server, and allow that server to present your personalized content.
What analytics information do we collect? As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically.
This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit
pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or
clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site.
We believe in protecting your privacy, and will not share your Personal Information with third parties outside of OSIsoft,
and services with the information you share with us.
We use Personal Information about you for a variety of purposes, such as to:
As part of your experience on our Site, you may receive communications from us related to products and services that might
interest you. While we believe these services will enhance your experience at our Site, you will at all times be
able to opt out from receiving these communications, either by specifically opting out of these services or by deleting
your profile from our database. Please refer to “Opting-Out” for further reference.
We have today, and will in the future have, arrangements with third party service providers, such as credit card processors,
shipping companies and fulfillment services. When you sign up for a service we offer on the Site, we may be required
to share Personal Information with that service provider in order to provide the service. These third party providers
are required to comply with this policy and protect your information in the same way we do. They are not permitted
to retain or use Personal Information for any purpose unrelated to providing the service.
We may share your information with third-party business partners for such purposes as enhancing our products and services,
or so that they can market their products or services to you. If you do not want us to share your Personal Information
with these companies, please contact us at email@example.com.
We may receive information about you from other sources, including publicly available databases or third parties from whom
we have purchased data, and combine this data with information we already have about you. This helps us to update,
expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and provide products and services that may be of interest
to you. If you provide us Personal Information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only
use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us. Examples of the types of information
that may be obtained from public sources or purchased from third parties may include company name or industry.
We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to potential advertisers, partners, other
third parties, our affiliate companies, and for other lawful purposes. We reserve the right to disclose Personal
Information when needed to comply with the law or a legal process; respond to lawful requests by public authorities,
including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; cooperate with investigations of purported unlawful
activities; identify persons violating the law; or in connection with the sale of part or all of OSIsoft’s or its
affiliates’ stock or assets.
The Site may offer forums, blogs, message boards, or chat rooms as one of the services on the Site. If you disclose Personal
Information in one of these forums, this information can be viewed, collected, and used by others. OSIsoft is not
responsible for the use of information you disclose in these forums. We encourage you to consult the Forum Rules
regarding the policies and procedures that apply to that portion of the Site.

on which you may voluntarily choose to provide Personal Information directly to our partners. OSIsoft PI Developers
Club and other services may also enable you to purchase, subscribe to, or use services, software, and content from
companies other than OSIsoft (“Third-Party Offerings”). If you choose to purchase, subscribe to, or use a Third-Party
Offering, we may provide the third party with your contact information and other Personal Information to enable the
third party to provide its offering to you (and with your consent, send you promotional communications). In addition,
other sites may use the Site’s or OSIsoft’s name.
Since OSIsoft does not control the privacy policies of third parties, you are subject to the privacy customs and policies,
if any, of such third parties, and OSIsoft shall not be responsible for the use or dissemination of your Personal
Information by such parties. Therefore, we encourage you to ask questions and review those parties’ privacy policies
before you disclose your Personal Information to others. If you wish to withdraw a prior consent allowing us to provide
your Personal Information to a third party, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
