We collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
By “personally identifiable information”, we mean any information about you that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as your name, phone number, email address and your job title. Such information will be provided by you when you register on our site, subscribe to a newsletter, register to a webinar, respond to a survey, leave comments or fill out a form on our site.
By “non-personally identifiable information”, we mean statistical information about your visit to our website. We collect: (i) information about your computer, including your IP address, the type of operating system and browser you use, and your computer’s location; (ii) what pages you visit and what links you click on and (iii) what other sites you’ve visited recently.
We collect personally identifiable information so that we can provide you with the services which are requested or permitted by you. This includes:
We also collect personally identifiable information for the legitimate interest of our business. Specifically, collected personally identifiable information will be automatedly processed to help our sales department decide whom it will approach to.
We keep the collected information about you as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes described in this policy. Your information will be removed from our systems when we will no longer deem it necessary to use it for the purposes described in this policy or if we deem the information as unnecessary for us to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations.
We pledge to protect your information with technical and organizational measures against the loss, misuse, and alteration of any information we receive from you.
Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. We regularly conduct malware scanning on our system to detect a malicious attack. We encrypt all information that you submit using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol. In case we detect a breach to your information which is likely to result in a high risk to your rights, we will notify you without undue delay regarding and communicate with you the nature and consequences of the data breach and measures we have taken or propose to take to address the data breach.
While visiting our website, your information will only be collected by third parties when you agree and opt-in the following circumstances:
When the third parties collect your information on their own behalf, we do not have access to the said information, and we do not ask for sharing of the said information with us without your explicit permission.
We do not sell, trade, transfer or share your information with third-parties, except in the following circumstances:
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser. They enable the website to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information, like your preferences, based on previous or current site activities. When you come back, the cookies allow the website to recognize you and respond appropriately.
This type of cookies allows the website you are visiting to keep track of your movement as you view different pages so that you don’t get asked for the same information you have already provided to the site. Session cookies expire and delete themselves automatically when you close your web browser.
This type of cookies allows websites to remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future so to speed up or enhance your experience of services or functions of the website. Persistent cookies are stored on your browser cache or mobile device until you choose the delete them, and otherwise delete themselves at expiration.
This type of cookies is placed by our third-party partners such as Google Analytics. They gather browsing activity across multiple websites and across multiple sessions. They are usually persistent cookies and are stored until you delete them or they expire based on the time period set in each third-party cookie.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. The following links are provided for you to understand these settings:

For cookies generated by advertisers, in particular, cookies used by Google AdSense which serves ads on our site, you can turn off by setting preferences in the Google Ad Settings page. You can do this by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt-Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
We use web beacons. Web beacons are clear electronic images that are used to keep track of your navigation through a single website or a series of websites.

Some third-party service providers may provide information like demographics, cross-device information, or interest categories from a combination of sources that, while not identifying you personally, permit us to provide you with more relevant and useful advertising.
These technologies allow a partner to recognize your computer or mobile device each time you visit our website based on data like a cookie, your IP address, or device ID, but do not allow access to other personal information from Hitachi Systems Security. These third parties have their own privacy policies and are required to follow applicable laws and self-regulatory programs.
