We, our affiliated entities, and our marketing partners may use automated means to collect various types of information about you, your computer or other device used to access this site, its services, related Web applications, and downloadable software. This information is based on your usage of this site and may be based on your visitation to other websites.

Usage Data is essentially anonymous when collected, but could be used indirectly to identify a person.

The PII and Usage Data which Articulate collects is used in a variety of ways: to provide you with our personalized or enhanced service, for internal review; to improve the content of the site, thus making your user experience more valuable; to notify you about updates; to provide you with information you have requested; and to let you know about our products and services.
We may make full, unrestricted use of Usage Data for any purpose in our sole discretion, including without limitation, to customize or personalize ads or re-marketing ads, offers and content made available to you based on your visits to and/or usage of this site or its services, and to analyze the performance of those ads, offers and content, as well as your interaction with them. (See also the Section titled "Re-marketing" below).

We are committed to preserving online privacy for all of its website visitors, including children. This site is a general audience site. Consistent with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we will not knowingly collect any information from, or sell to, children under the age of 13.

Do Not Track Requests
Some Web browsers incorporate a "Do Not Track" feature that signals to websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Each browser communicates "Do Not Track" signals to websites differently, making it unworkable to honor each and every request correctly. In order to alleviate any communication error between browsers and website, we do not respond to "Do Not Track" signals at this time. As the technology and communication between browser and website improves, we will reevaluate the ability to honor "Do Not Track" signals and may make changes to our policy.
In an effort to best serve you, your trial download or contact request may be routed to an authorized Articulate partner in your area.
