Protecting your privacy is important to Autodesk. This Privacy Statement explains our global practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal data, through the use of all of our websites, products and services (applications).

Some of our applications may display supplemental privacy notices that we share so you can make informed choices at the time you review the notices. For example, you may see a notice explaining a data collection program in an application, and your choices for participating.

We collect information that identifies you, including your name, surname, and contact information, such as your address, email address and telephone number, when you:

We collect additional information to inform your specific use of our applications. This includes your language preferences, the date of your birth, the name of your employer and your job title.

After you have created an account or registered for an application, we collect additional information, which may include:

Your subscription plans and payment information

Details about the applications that you purchased or have expressed interest in

Records of our interaction with you, where appropriate, such as service records, correspondence, details of complaints and their resolution

Content you submitted to us, such as comments you posted in our forums

When you make purchases through our websites, we use payment processors (Digital RiverBlueSnapPayPalStripe) and do not store credit card or other financial information (other than confirmation that payment in a certain amount has been made). We collect contact information from you that we pass through to the payment processor to facilitate the transaction. For more information you can contact our providers as set forth in their privacy notices.

Information we obtain from your use of our applications:

We collect information about the applications that you use and how you use them. We use this information to support our legitimate interest in improving your experience, and building better online, mobile, and desktop applications.

We collect device-specific information, like unique device identifiers, operating system, and the type of device you use.

We collect information about how you use our applications. This includes your product ID, license information, which applications you use and for how long, your city and country from your IP address, and information about your browser.

We have pages on social networking platforms, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter, where you can visit and communicate with us.

Our applications also include buttons, tools, or content that links to another companys services. We collect information about your use of these features through Autodesk Analytics tools and third-party analytics tools.

If you use an Autodesk application that contains plugins, information can be transferred directly from your device to the social networking provider. We have no influence on the data collected by the plugin. If you are logged in to the social network, a link can be established between your user account there and the use of our application.

If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on Like, Follow or Share, or by writing a comment, this information may automatically appear in your profile on the social network. Even if you are not logged in, the plugins may send your IP address to social network providers. Please note this when using our applications.

When you connect to a social networking service on a device that is also used by others, these other users are able to see information that is stored or displayed in connection with your profile on the social networking service page.

We collect and track data on technical errors that may occur when you use our applications, if you choose to send the relevant report to us in each case. Before the report is sent to us, you will be told what information will be collected and how it will be sent to us.

We collect information that may identify you to your system administrator in connection with the automatic update process, to help your administrator determine what updates you need. This information includes your user login name, and your computers name or description.

Autodesk uses cookies (small text files stored by your web browser when you use websites) and related technologies, such as pixels and beacons (Cookies) to collect and store information when you visit our websites and use our applications.

We also use Autodesk Analytics programs and third-party analytics tools, such asGoogle Analytics, to help us understand how you use our website and applications.

To learn more about analytics within our websites and applications, see ourCookie Statement.

With the exception of information essential to operate our services as described in our Cookie Statement, whether we collect this data is up to you. You can change your mind at any time by going into your Settings within the application, as well as here. Please keep in mind that you may also need to clear your Cookies on each browser on each device.

We associate any data we collect as set forth above with your personal account.

Information we collect from other parties:

To help keep our databases current, and to provide you with more relevant content, experiences and offerings, we combine your personal data, as described above, with information from public sources and other companies (such as our channel partners [resellers], business contact databases, and enrichment service providers), in accordance with applicable law.

These sources can tell us about the company size and industry of our business customers and also help us maintain the accuracy of our databases.

We use your personal data mindfully, and in useful ways, including:

To validate your identity, to the extent necessary to perform our contract with you

To deliver you services, products, support, or information you have requested about your application, to the extent necessary to perform our contract with you

To send you important information within the scope of our contract with you

To send you other information you requested, like when someone has liked one of your posts, to the extent necessary to perform our contract with you

To send you other special offers, promotions, newsletters, surveys, or other information that you have consented to receive, as long as you want them

To support our legitimate interest in using automated systems to analyze your data using machine learning and advanced analytics to improve our applications

To pursue our legitimate interest in preventing and reducing fraud and software piracy

As further described in your applications, such as in a supplemental notice, or in our About Boxes (available via Settings in your application)

Unless otherwise indicated, there is no statutory or contractual requirement for you to provide this data. If you do not provide this data, we might not be able to provide our services to you.

To provide you the best services we can, we work with other service providers. These companies are located all over the world, and we require them to protect your privacy. They are not authorized by us to use your personal data for their own purposes. Our service providers include companies we use for:

We may disclose your data in the following circumstances:

To our service providers for the purposes indicated in this Privacy Statement. We do not disclose your personal data to them for their own purposes.

To our channel partners (resellers), who are not service providers, for the purposes indicated in this Privacy Statement

When we are required to do so by law, such as to respond to a subpoena or a court order

When we have a good faith belief that the disclosure is necessary to prevent or respond to fraud or software piracy, defend ourselves against attacks, or protect the rights, property, and safety of Autodesk, our customers, and the public

If we merge with another company, or if we sell or reorganize part of, or all of our business, assets, or stock (including, if we file for bankruptcy). If this happens, your data will likely be transferred to the other company.

When the data can no longer identify you. This can happen through aggregation, where your data is combined with other data to become a statistic.

We use a combination of reasonable physical, administrative, and technological controls to protect your data from unauthorized access or malicious actions. For more information about our security practices, please visit theTrust Center.

We limit the access employees, contractors, and agents of Autodesk have to your personal data to those who need to know this data to perform their assigned functions and develop or improve our products and services.

We have processes in place to maintain accurate, complete and up to date data. You have the right to access, update, delete, receive a copy of, or restrict our use of your personal data. When we process personal data based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw consent any time.

We store your personal data and content on our servers, and the servers of our service providers. Because we and our service providers maintain servers in global locations, your personal data may be transferred across national borders and stored outside of the United States.

We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary to provide you with the applications you are using, and as needed to comply with our legal obligations.

Because we are a global company, we transfer your personal data across national borders to other countries, in compliance with the laws that apply to that data.

When your data is transferred from one of our entities in the European Economic Area (EEA) to the United States, or another country outside of the EEA, we rely on one or more of the following legal mechanisms which provide appropriate safeguards for the transfers: the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, and Standard Contractual Clauses.

Our websites and applications may feature ads for other companies products and services, as well as ads for our own applications.

We work with one or more advertising networks, which are our Ad Partners, who use Cookies or other technologies to collect information in order to serve you ads and help us track results. Such information may include the websites you visit, the mobile apps you use, the preferences you may provide us as your application provider, your IP address, your device ID, and information about your browser.

At Autodesk, we care deeply about childrens privacy and protecting their data.

Many of our applications, and features are made for the general public, and are designed for adult users. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children in connection with those websites, products, services, and features that are made for the general public.

Other applications and features are appropriate for use by children, and ourChildrens Privacy Statementapplies to the personal data collected from those applications.

You can tell us how we can use your information by clicking on the links below:

If you live in the EU, you have certain personal data rights, including to access what personal information we have about you, make corrections or updates to it, tell us to delete that data, or receive a portable copy of that information. These rights dont apply in all situations. Please click the links below to:

We collect information about you in many ways from many places. Some of the information we collect may include personal information that can be used to identify you; for example, your name, email address, telephone number, or postal address. In some countries like those in the EU, things like IP address or cookie and mobile device identifiers may also be considered personal information.

Please note: We may combine all of the information we collect about you to give you better products, services, and user experiences.

you provide it to us.You give us your information when signing up for an account on our websites or in mobile apps or by calling or emailing us. We may ask for things like your name, email or home address, date of birth, payment information, your age, gender, the number of people in your family, and the way you want us to send you information about our products and servicesfor example, to your home address, email address, or by texting you.

from sites and emails.We may use technologies that automatically collect information when you visit our sites, view our advertisements, or use our products or services. For example, we use cookies (a tiny file stored on your computers browser) to tell us what browser and operating system you are using, your IP address, web pages you visit, links you click, or whether you have or have not opened an email from us.

from mobile applications and internet connected devices.To give you the best possible user experience, we may use technologies that collect information from your phone when you use our mobile apps or from smart devices in your home. You consent to do this when downloading the app or installing household internet connected devices. This information could include your mobile phone or other device advertising ID, information about your phones operating system, how you use the app or device, and your physical location. You will get a pop up notice on your phone or device that gives you the option to accept or reject allowing us to know your precise geolocation (exactly where you are standing or where you are accessing the internet).

from other places.We may get information that other companies share with or sell to us. For example, you may have given consent for another company to share your personal information with us when you signed up for telecom services or a retailer loyalty points program. We may also collect information from places that you know everyone can see, such as from internet postings, blog entries, videos, or social media sites. We may also receive information from other companies who are in the business of collecting or aggregating information about you sourced from publicly available databases or from consent you have given to their use and subsequently our use of your information. This might be information about your income level, age, gender, number of people in your family, and products you have bought on the internet or from stores in your neighborhood.

We use your information to help us meet our purpose of touching and improving the lives of people like you every day around the world. We use your information to respond to your questions or requests for information, send you products or samples you have requested, help you manage your P&G site or app preferences, allow you to enter our contests or sweepstakes, or process your payment for the products you buy from us. We may also use your non-personal information (e.g., purchase data, sample requests, etc.) in consumer research or analytics (or personal information when you have consented to participate in such research) to learn more about what consumers want so that we can make new products or improve the ones we already have.

Another way we use your information is to make sure that what you hear from us is relevant and useful to you as an individual. For example, we may send you information about Gillette® products if you have shown interest in our shaving products by visiting . When we do this, we will use your information a cookie ID or device ID — to limit the number of times you see the same advertisement from Gillette. We want you to hear from us about the products you use and love without you hearing the same message over and over again.

We may also use aggregate information from many people without identifying any individuals to better understand how our websites are being used or to study consumer habits so that we can make products and offer services that meet the needs of all consumers sharing some of the same things in common. For example, we can learn a lot about consumers who are new parents reading our baby product websites, so that we can better serve new parents everywhere with the products and services they want. Use of such non-personal information in this way helps to safeguard your privacy. We will always try to use non-personal information whenever possible for this reason.

To further protect your privacy, we will also use the least amount of information we can to accomplish the task at hand, put measures in place to prevent mixing information in ways that would allow cookie and device IDs to specifically and directly identify you (e.g., by name), and delete your information when we no longer need it for our business purposes.

We respect your personal information and take steps to protect it from loss, misuse, or alteration. Where appropriate, these steps can include technical measures like firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, unique and complex passwords, and encryption. We also use organizational and physical measures such as training staff on data processing obligations, identification of data incidents and risks, restricting staff access to your personal information, and ensuring physical security including appropriately securing documents when not being used

with other companies.When we have your consent, we may share your information with select partners so they can send you offers, promotions, or ads about products or services we believe you may be interested in. For example, people who receive P&G emails from our diaper brands such as Pampers® may also consent to hear about baby formulas made by other companies. We do not sell your personal information to marketers outside of P&G. We may share information that does not personally identify you with other companies for any purpose.

with service providers.We may need to share your information with companies who help us run our business, including hosting our sites, delivering our emails to you, analyzing the data we collect, and sending you the products and services you requested. We share only the personal information needed for these companies to complete the tasks we request. They are required to protect your information in the same way we do and will not share it or use it for any other purpose.other situations.If a brand or one of our businesses with which youve shared personal data is sold to another company, your data will be shared with that company. As a result, your account and the personal data in it will not be deleted unless you tell the brand or new company that you want it deleted. We may also share your information with companies who help us protect our rights and property, or when required by law or government authorities.

marketingYou can tell us to stop sending you email and text messages by following the opt-out instructions sent with these communications. You can also choose to stop receiving marketing email, SMS, or postal mailings byclicking here. While we will honor your choices, we may need to keep information to do so.

If not, you canclick hereto make a request.

european union residents.If you live in the EU, you may access the personal data we hold about you, request that inaccurate, outdated, or no longer necessary information be corrected, erased, or restricted, and ask us to provide your data in a format that allows you to transfer it to another service provider. You also may withdraw your consent at any time where we are relying on your consent for the processing of your personal data. And you may object to our processing of your personal data (this means ask us to stop using it) where that processing is based on our legitimate interest (this means we have a reason for using the data). If you would like more information about data protection and your personal data rights in general, please visit the European Data Protection Supervisors site at If you are not happy with our response to your requests, you may lodge a complaint with the data protection authority in your country.

Cookies are small files sent to your computer as you surf the web.  They store useful information about how you interact with the websites you visit.  Cookies do not collect any information stored on your computer or device or in your files.  Cookies do not contain any information that would directly identify you as a person.  Cookies show your computer and device only as randomly assigned numbers and letters (e.g., cookie ID ABC12345) and never as, for example, John E. Smith.

We use cookies for a number of reasons, such as:

to serve you with relevant advertising

to learn more about the way you interact with P&G content

help us improve your experience when visiting our websites

to remember your preferences, such as a language or a region, so there is no need for you to customize the website on each visit

to identify errors and resolve them

to analyze how well our websites are performing

These are the types of cookies we use:

Webpages have no memory. Session cookies remember you (using a randomly generated ID like: ABC12345) as you move from page to page so that you dont get asked to provide the same information youve already given on the site. For example, session cookies are extremely helpful when shopping onlinewithout them the items you place in your shopping cart would disappear by the time you reach the checkout! These cookies are deleted as soon as you leave our site or close your browser.

Persistent cookies allow sites to remember what you prefer when you come back again. For example, if you choose to read the site in French on your first visit, the next time you come back the site will appear automatically in French. Not having to select a language preference every time makes it more convenient, more efficient, and user-friendly for you.

These cookies can be used to learn about what interests you generally might have, based, for example, on the websites you visit and the products you buy. This can also help us infer things about you such your age, marital status, and how many kids you may have. That data allows us to send you ads for products and services that better fit the things you like or need. It also allows us to limit the number of times you see the same advertisement.

These cookies tell us how our websites are working. In many cases, we use Google analytics cookies to monitor the performance of our sites. Our ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our sites is restricted by theGoogle Analytics Terms of Useand theGoogle Privacy Policy.

How you can control cookies.You can set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent to your computer. However, this may prevent our sites or services from working properly. You can also set your browser to delete cookies every time you finish browsing.

Beacons send one-way signals to mobile apps you install on your phone over very short distances to tell you, for example, what products are on-sale as you walk through a store. Beacons only talk to your device when you get close enough and after you have given consent within the mobile application associated with a particular beacon. In turn, apps may provide us location information to help customize advertising and offers to you. For example, when you are near a beacon in the skin care section of a supermarket, we may send you a $4 off coupon.

These are small objects embedded into a web page, but are not visible. They are also known as tags, web bugs, or pixel gifs. We use pixels to deliver cookies to your computer, monitor our website activity, make logging into our sites easier, and for online marketing activity. We also include pixels in our promotional email messages or newsletters to determine whether you open and act on them.

mobile device identifiers and SDKs.

We use software code in our mobile apps to collect information similar to what cookies collect on the internet. This will be information like your mobile phone identifiers (iOS IDFAs and Android Advertising IDs) and the way you use our apps. Similar to cookies, the device information we collect automatically as you use our apps will never identify you as a person. We only know a mobile device as randomly assigned numbers and letters (e.g., advertising ID EFG4567) and never as, for example, John E. Smith.

We may receive information about your exact location from things like global positioning system (GPS) coordinates (longitude and latitude) when you use our mobile apps. You will always get a pop-up notice on your phone or device asking for you to accept or reject allowing us to know exactly where you are in the world. You should understand that we will not always ask for consent to know generally that you are in a broader city, postal code, or province. For example, we do not consider it to be precise location if all we know is that you are somewhere in Manila, Philippines.

When you visit our partner sites, we can show you ads or other content we believe you would like to see. For example, you may receive advertisements for Tide® laundry detergent if we notice that you are visiting sites that sell childrens clothing or school supplies. And from that information we may conclude that you have children and therefore could well be interested in a powerful laundry-cleaning product. In this way, we intend to send you relevant information about our products that might be of benefit to you.

we learn from groups of consumers sharing similar interests.We may place you into a particular group of consumers who show the same interests. For example, we may put you in the group of razor aficionados if we see you frequently purchase razors online or you could be a bargain-shopper if we notice you use online coupons or look for discounts or sales. We notice these things about you as you look at web pages, links you click on our websites and other websites you visit, mobile applications you use, or our brand emails you view and links you click in the emails. We group together cookie and device IDs to help us learn about general trends, habits, or characteristics from a group of consumers who all act similarly online and/or offline. By doing this, we can find and serve many others who look like those already in the group and thereby send them what we believe will be relevant and beneficial product offers and information.

we link other information to your cookie and device IDs.Your cookie and device IDs may be supplemented with other information, such as information about the products you buy offline or information that you provide directly to us when creating an account on our sites. We generally do this in ways that will not directly personally identify you. For example, we could know that cookie ID ABC12345 belongs to the razor aficionado group based on persons web site visits, age, gender, and shopping habits, but we would not know that persons name or address or other information that would identify him or her as a person. Should we ever want to personally identify your cookie or device information (web and app viewing history), we will always ask you before doing so.

we may know you across all of your computers, tablets, phones, and devices.We may know that cookie ID ABC12345 is from a computer that that may be connected to the same person or household owning the mobile phone with device ID EFG15647. This means that you may search for diapers on your laptop, click on a Google search result link which we have sponsored, and then later see an ad for our Pampers® brand diapers on your mobile phone. We might assume or deduce that the same person owns the computer and phone because, for example, they sign on to the same WiFi network every day at the same time. Understanding what devices seem to be used by a person or household helps us limit the number of times you see the same ad across all of your devices. And this is important because that way you dont get annoyed at us for spamming you with the same ad and we dont pay for such repetitive ads that we dont want you to receive.

how you can stop receiving interest-based ads.To stop receiving P&G interest-based advertising, you canclick hereor click on the WebChoices or AppChoices icons on one of our sites or in one of our mobile applications.You can also prevent getting interest-based ads on websites by declining cookies in your browser(s), declining the access to data requests that apps usually present when you install them, or by adjusting the ad tracking settings on your device.

you will still see contextual ads even if you opt out of interest-based ads.Even if we stop sending you interest-based ads, you will still get ads from our brands on your computer or mobile devices. These ads, however, are based on the context of the sites you visit and are called contextual ads. Unlike interest-based ads which are based on pages you visit on your mobile phone or computer viewing activities, contextual ads are ads shown to you based on the context of the specific site you are visiting. For example, you still may see an ad for one of our baby care brands while looking at nursery products online because these sites traditionally have had mostly new or expecting parents as visitors. You should also know that we may still collect information from your computer or devices and use it for other purposes like evaluating how our websites work, for consumer research, or detecting fraud.

deleting cookies also deletes your opt out.When you opt out of interest-based advertising, we send an opt-out cookie to your browser that tells us that you no longer want to receive interest-based ads from us. Your opt-out cookie will be deleted if you decide to deleteallcookies. This means that you will need to opt-out again if you still do not want to receive interest-based ads.

This section applies only to our processing of personal data of EU country residents. It aims to provide increased transparency into our processing, retention, and transfer of EU resident personal data that is in line with the letter and spirit of the General Data Protection Regulation.

entities.Different P&G entities may be the controller of your personal data. A data controller is the entity which directs the processing activity and is principally responsible for the data. The chart below identifies our data controllers for EU country data.

Roblox Privacy and Cookie Policy

Roblox is an imagination platform, where users are encouraged to design, create, and interact with whatever they can imagine. As a user of the Roblox platform, you and your friends can collaborate on building or just gather and explore other users creations. Your privacy is important to us; this is why we created this Privacy Policy so that you are aware of what information is collected, how we use it, and who we share it with.

This Privacy Policy covers our websites on the domain, our Roblox mobile and Xbox apps, the Roblox Player, the Roblox Studio, and our other websites, products, software, applications, content, data feeds and other services (Service) on which an authorized link to this privacy policy is posted. This Policy covers our practices with regard to Roblox users of all ages, including a unique set of practices for those under the age of 13 (children). The Service is operated by or on behalf of Roblox Corporation.

If you are an EU resident, this whole Policy applies to you.  However, EU residents should see Section 14 below, which will inform you in detail about the personal data we process, how we process it, for which purposes we process it, with whom we share it, on what legal basis we process and transfer your personal data and which rights you have regarding the processing of your personal data.

Roblox is also committed to protecting the privacy of our users, including children. Please see theChildrens Privacy and Parental Controlssection below for more information about your rights as a parent or legal guardian of our children users and the measures we take to afford children users with additional protections and comply with the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Processingmeans any operation which is performed on personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or any kind of disclosure or other use.

Any other capitalized term that is not defined in this Policy is defined (and has the meaning) set out in ourTerms of Use.

Please note that our Corporate Websites (which may include corp.roblox.com, blog.roblox.com, and their subdomains) are general audience websites. On these sites, we may provide information regarding the corporate side of Roblox, press information, career information, and other general audience information. We may also ask for your name, email address, employment details if you send us a CV, resume or other details of your employment history in connection with an advertised job vacancy or a general inquiry regarding employment opportunities with us and other information so that we can provide corporate-related information to you or respond to your job application.

A user creates a username and a virtual character that is his or her identity in the Roblox world.

Registered users interact with other users through in-game or website chat, personal messaging (within the Roblox environment), user forums, groups, and other similar features, with available privacy settings designed to allow users to restrict or disable communications with other users.

Each user is given one or more pieces of virtual real estate on which they can build houses, cars, machines, roller coasters, or anything else you can imagine with building blocks and code; these places are called games.

Users search for, find, and play games made by other users; they play these games with other users from around the world, and are identified only by their username.

The Roblox world includes a virtual currency known as Robux; users can earn or purchase Robux in a variety of ways, and use them to buy or sell items for their characters, for in-game items, and other uses.

Users who earn a large amount of Robux virtual currency are allowed to sell that currency back to Roblox subject to certain participation requirements, including having to be 13 years old or older. See ourDevEx Terms of Servicefor more information.

Users can purchase premium services, including monthly or yearly subscriptions.

For more information on how our service works, please see ourTerms of Service.

Roblox users may play as guests without creating a Roblox account; in guest mode, users remain anonymous in their interactions within the Service and games, and do not have access to chat features, cannot use the personal messaging platform, cannot post to the forums or groups, and are subject to other restrictions (a) determined by Roblox from time to time and (b) designed to prevent users from sharing personal data, whether intentionally or otherwise. As guests, users are unable to save play statistics, accumulate points, share models, create games, or participate in the Roblox virtual economy.

Users who want to save play statistics, share models, create games, and participate in the Roblox virtual economy must create an account on Roblox. To create a Roblox account, we will ask you to create a unique username and password (so you can log in to your account), and to provide other demographic information such as your age or date of birth, gender, country or language preference (so we can customize your experience on Roblox).

Users must not create a username that reflects their own name or other personal data. Users should also not pick a password that is easy to guess, and should not share their password. For security reasons, we store passwords in encrypted form.

Usernames are used for participating in Service features and we do not use them to identify individual users outside of their activities on our Service. Usernames are not passed along to third-party companies except for our third-party service providers who use or process the usernames for purposes of helping operate our Service, such as effectuating payments and website hosting.

Users may be asked to provide or may choose to add an email address to their account for added verification and/or to enable certain features. The primary purpose for this email address is to provide account security, as this is the only way for Roblox to check the authenticity of an account owner. In this circumstance, users under the age of 13 are asked to provide a parent email address. Users may change the email address associated with their account at any time; however, a notification will be sent to the previously provided email address upon making that change.

In addition to account setup on Roblox, we may collect and process information from you in connection with the following features and activities (as applicable):

When you make purchases on the Service

. Users can purchase virtual currency or premium subscriptions, for example, in the form of Robux, Builders Club membership, etc., and use a variety of payment methods. When making purchases, users or their parents may be required to enter billing information, including name, billing address, credit card or other payment information, and billing email. Roblox may also retain your billing information, transaction details, and purchase history to resolve subsequent billing disputes and inquiries. Roblox does not retain the full credit card numbers of our users.

When you post or otherwise transmit comments or messages on Roblox via community features such as public chat or private chat, forums, group walls, personal posts, etc.

we may collect these comments and messages, and they may be monitored, filtered and moderated for purposes such as removal of profanity, personal data, and other inappropriate conversations. We may use pre-filtered chat, comments and messages (of EU and US users over 13) for purposes such as training and improving our filter technology, except that we will not engage in these activities with private chat, comments, and messages of EU users.

When you participate in our Roblox Developer Exchange Program

, we require you to provide us with an IRS W-9 form (for U.S. taxpayers) or W-8 form (for non-U.S. taxpayers).

When you agree to use our find a friend feature

, we may ask your permission to access and collect information about your contacts in your address book on your mobile phone, either at the time you register for our Service or otherwise. We do so to help you connect with your friends on our Service. As part of our find a friend feature, we will automatically access and collect information in your address book from time to time in order to sync your contacts.

When you provide us with your phone number

, we may use it to connect you on Roblox with your friends. If you do not want us to use your phone number to find your friends on Roblox, please adjust your privacy settings on the Service. Please note that our find a friend feature may not be available in certain locations. In particular, we take steps to not provide the feature to users we have classified as residents of the European Union.

When you contact or send communications to Roblox

, for example when you contact customer support, report a problem, or submit questions, concerns, or comments regarding our Service or its content, in which case we may collect contact information such as your email address and other important information about your inquiry or concern. This information is used to respond to your communications, fulfill your requests, or provide other customer support.

When you use or interact with third-party plug-ins that may be available on the Service for users 13 and older

, such as third-party social media widgets, share buttons, and/or login mechanisms. These features may include social plugins from Google, Facebook, Twitter or other platforms, and may be subject to the privacy policies of these other companies as posted on their respective websites. When you use these features, certain information from your social media accounts may be accessed by or shared with Roblox, and likewise, certain information about your use of Roblox may be posted to your profile on those platforms.

When you participate in contests, competitions, sweepstakes, giveaways, prize draws or other promotions

that we may run on our Service or sponsor from time to time. These promotions may involve the collection and use of certain contact information (such as your name, email address, and/or phone number) for prize fulfillment purposes, as well as other information or content needed for the specific promotion.

When you respond to or participate in voluntary surveys

, which we may offer on our Service from time to time to conduct research or demographic studies. These surveys may collect anonymous information about your likes and dislikes, game play interests and habits, general hobbies and interests, and other lifestyle information or preferences. These surveys will not collect personal data about you.

When you request or agree to location-based services from Roblox, which may be available to our users ages 13 and older

. We may collect or track real-time or precise geolocation information to provide services such as tagging, check-in and content delivery, targeted or geo-based advertising, or other services that are dependent on knowing where you are. This information may be collected in combination with an identifier associated with your device to enable us to recognize your mobile browser or device when you return to the Service. You can always stop the collection of location information by updating your device settings, stopping to use the Service, and/or un-installing our mobile applications.

When you subscribe to other features or activities

that we may offer from time to time on the Service and submit or upload information in connection with such features. The data being collected for such features and their intended uses will be evident at the time of data collection.

When you browse, navigate, or otherwise interact with the Service

, as outlined in the Cookies and Similar Technologies section below.

You are under no obligation to provide personal data to Roblox when requested. However, if you choose to withhold any requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services and features.

Session cookie which is erased when the user closes the browser; or

Persistent cookie which remains on the users computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

First-party cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain (in this case roblox.com domain); or

Third-party cookies stored by a different domain to the visited pages domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain.

These same technologies (or a combination of them) may also be used to help us:

Capture and store users preferences, account settings, and certain login information (mainly for convenience, user verification, and account security);

Compile statistics and analytics about your use of and interaction with the Service, including details about how and where our Service is downloaded from or accessed, how often a user visits or uses the Service, the date and time of user visits to, and actions on, the Service, which areas of the Service are visited and for how long, information regarding in-game activities, and other similar traffic, usage, and trend data;

Mobile analytic tools to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your device and gain insights about how mobile software is used;

Gather demographic information about our user base; and;

We will not use cookies or similar technology other than for the purposes stated in this Cookie Policy.

Third party advertising and ad networks

Roblox partners with third-party advertisers, ad server companies, and ad networks (third party advertising companies) that use cookies, beacons, tags, tracking pixels and scripts and other tracking technologies in order to collect data such as IP address, device ID, and other information about your computer or device, as well as Internet and online usage information and information about certain activities on the Service, including purchases and in-game information. We or our service providers also may provide such information to these third party advertising companies. For our users that are 13 years old or older, these third party advertising companies may use such information and information about your visits to the Service and other websites and services in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you, often referred to as behaviorally-targeted or re-targeted advertisements. Some of our advertising partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA), which you can learn more about at these links:

If you do not wish to receive our personalized ads, please visit their opt-out pages at the above links to learn about how you may opt out of receiving personalized ads from member companies. For our users that are under the age of 13, Roblox partners with third-party advertising companies to serve contextual advertising, cap the frequency of advertising, and related uses permitted by COPPA. Roblox does not show behaviorally-targeted or retargeted ads to users under the age of 13 or track such users for targeted advertising purposes.

Roblox may share your information as set forth below. Please note that Roblox does not sell personal data about you to third-party companies for their marketing purposes.

Roblox may share users information, including personal data like billing information or usernames, with our third-party agents, contractors, or service providers who are hired to perform services on Robloxs behalf. These providers may operate or support certain functions of the Service. Below is an illustrative list of functions for which we may use third-party service providers and the names of the providers we may use to perform these functions:

Analytics services (e.g., Google Inc, comScore, Flurry Analytics);

Advertising services (e.g., AppsFlyer);

Community filtering and moderation services (e.g., CommunitySift);

Customer support services (e.g., Zendesk);

Surveys and promotions (e.g., Magid);

Billing services and payment gateway providers (e.g., Kount, SiftScience, PayPal, Vantiv, Incomm, Rixty, Google, Apple, Amazon, Windows Store); and

Hosting and content delivery network services (e.g., AWS, Equinix, CenturyLink).

These agents and contractors are only allowed to use the information shared with them only for the specific tasks theyve been hired to do and consistent with this Privacy Policy, and for no other purposes. Roblox takes steps to ensure that all service providers with access to personal data are capable of protecting the information we share with them.

We offer users the ability to use forums and similar means of public discussion. If you use any messaging, posting, or chat functions on Roblox, you should be aware that any personal data submitted there will be available to anyone who has access to that content, including other users, and can be read, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to send unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for how other individuals use the information posted in this manner.

We may disclose personal data about you as required or permitted by law and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Service. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose personal data about you in response to a request from law enforcement agencies, regulators, or other public agencies (including schools or children services) or if such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of a child using our Service, protect the security or integrity of our Service, or enable us to take precautions against liability or to protect our rights.

Information about our users, including personal data, may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, sale of assets, or similar transaction, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets. Where necessary, we will inform you of such disclosure and obtain your consent.

We share aggregated, automatically-collected, or otherwise non-personal data with third parties for various purposes, including (i) compliance with reporting obligations; (ii) for business or marketing purposes; (iii) to assist us and other parties in understanding our users interests, habits and usage patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions and/or functionality available through the Services. We do not share personal data about you in this case.

The security of your personal data is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on our order forms, Roblox (or the service provider operating the function on our behalf) will encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) or similar technologies. We have security measures in place to attempt to protect the personal or other sensitive information submitted to us against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal data under our control. While we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information will never occur, we use reasonable efforts to prevent it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

Roblox may retain users account data internally for the following purposes:

Billing information and transaction histories are retained to resolve subsequent billing disputes and inquiries;

Publicly shared content and game items are retained for use by the community (e.g., a user-created virtual shirt sold to another user is kept in the system because the recipient now owns a copy of that item);

User account history is retained to support subsequent customer service inquiries and to provide, improve and develop the Services;

To promote safety and security on and for the Services; and

We may retain your information for as long as is necessary and relevant to your use of the Service and our operations, which may include retaining your information beyond the end of your use of the Service.

Our Service may, from time to time, contain links to external sites or applications. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of such sites or applications. To make clear when you are linking to a third-party site or application, we may display a warning message informing you when you are leaving our Service.

We recognize that children deserve added protections with regard to their personal data and privacy online. For this reason, when users under the age of 13 register for the Service, their account is automatically set to Privacy Mode. This means that children users will not have access to certain features, such as social media plug-ins, some forms of third-party advertising, and certain types of notification alerts.

When a child creates an account on Roblox, we may collect a username, password, birthdate, and parent email address. This information is used to give the child access to the Service (with certain default settings) and to communicate with the parent about the childs account. For example, we may use the parents email to send an email notification about the childs account creation and an invitation for the parent to review, update settings, and approve of their childs account. We may use the birthdate the child provides when signing up for the Service to determine which features on Roblox the child should have access to and to determine when the child will turn 13 years old and can be given broader access to features on our Service. In general, we will not use or share account information (including personal data) from your childs account, except for the permissible purposes stated in this Privacy Policy, and, if required by law, only with the prior verifiable consent of a parent or legal guardian.

To make any requests for changes to your childs account or requests for the removal of personal data collected about you or your child from our Service (as applicable), or to request that we stop the further collection or use of your or your childs personal data in connection with the Service (as applicable), please complete the online help form at

We offer all accounts, including children accounts, the ability to modify chat/communication settings (for example, limiting interaction to just friends or no one), as well as a special Restricted Account Mode which turns off all forms of chat and public commenting and which allows the user to access only a selection of filtered games on Roblox. We recommend that parents familiarize themselves with all of the safety features and parental controls available in the Settings area of the Service (a description of which can be foundhere) and to accompany their children when they are playing online.

We proactively filter all public and comment areas of the Service (such as chat, forums, group walls, personal posts, etc.) to remove references to addresses, emails, phone numbers, or other personal data regardless of security and privacy settings. All text is also filtered for profanity, phishing, and adult or suggestive content. Our system uses a combination of human and automated processes. However, like all filtering technology, our systems are not 100% effective.

In general, if you are under the age of 13, it is a good idea to talk to and ask your parent(s) or guardian(s) for permission before using or playing on the Service. If you do not get such permission, you should not use our Service. Parents should contact Roblox immediately if they have any concerns regarding the Service. Please see the Contact Information section below for further details.

If personal data about you changes, or if you no longer desire to use our Service, you may correct, update, amend, or deactivate your account under your account settings or by contacting Roblox using the information set out above in Sec. 1. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe. For children under the age of 13, please see theChildrens Privacy and Parental Controlssection above.

Roblox is based in the U.S. Your personal data which we collect are sent to and stored on secure servers located in the United States of America. Such storage is necessary in order to process the information.

Roblox operates globally and we may transfer the personal data that we collect from you to our other offices and/or to the third parties mentioned in the circumstances described above (seeInformation Sharing), which may be situated outside of your country or regional area, and may be processed by staff operating outside your country or regional area. In particular, information provided to us or collected by us likely will be transferred to and processed in the United States by us or our agents and contractors. The data protection laws of the United States or other countries may not be as comprehensive or equivalent to those i

Lead Forensics Marketing and Sales Data

As an organisation that processes business related data, Lead Forensics has assessed all six grounds for lawful processing of personal data and has selected Legitimate Interests as the most suitable lawful ground for the processing of data for the purposes of Lead Forensics marketing and sales

Lead Forensics collects, processes and stores data relating to businesses and decision makers.  We believe that the individuals that we process the data of, are likely to have an interest in the Lead Forensics product.  Deemed as Legitimate Interest this is based upon specific criteria including the business industry sector, size of organisation as well as the individuals job function within the organisation.  Our typical segmentation includes those within marketing, sales, business development, MD and owner related job functions, although this list is not exhaustive and other variables may apply.

We will only ever collect, process and store the essential information required for making contact with the data subjects within a business environment.  The personal data we collect is limited to first name, last name, email address, social profiles (limited to LinkedIN) as well as business IP address.  Other business related data may also be processed including business name, job function, turnover and business address, however we will never collect further personal data such as those classed under Sensitive Personal Data.

The data collected will be used to communicate marketing and sales messages relating to the Lead Forensics product, based upon the job function held by the data subject.  Lead Forensics specifically only sends messages to those we believe are likely to be interested in the Lead Forensics product based upon the organisation they are employed by and based upon their job function within that organisation.  Messages from Lead Forensics could be delivered via email, social media, via telephone or any other business to business (B2B) marketing methods that may be relevant.

When you send Lead Forensics an enquiry or booking form via our website or one of our micro sites you will be asked to provide your contact details. We will use the data you provide to process your request and may use it to inform you by email, telephone or mail about other Lead Forensics products and services that we feel may be of interest to you, it is deemed that as you have visited the Lead Forensics website and provided us with your contact information that you are legitimately interested in our products and services.  You have the right to object from any method of correspondence at any time, using the unsubscribe button on an email, by informing the telephone operator or by contacting us via any of the methods below.

Someone has sent us your e-mail address requesting information about our articles and/or services be sent to you

You or someone else has expressly shared your contact details with us for the purpose of receiving information now and/or in the future

We have previously met at an event and your business card or contact details were handed to us willingly

You have previously connected with a member of our team via the LinkedIN and discussed our services

Your data has been purchased by a registered third party data supplier, which will have been segmented by industry, organisation size and job function based upon our typical customer profiles. (Due diligence checks around GDPR compliance will have been conducted accordingly)

Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA)

Lead Forensics has carried out a Legitimate Interest Assessment (LIA) as advised by the ICO.  Based upon that assessment it is deemed that the rights and freedoms of the data subjects would not be overridden in our correspondence regarding Lead Forensics and that in no way would a data subject be caused harm by our correspondence. Based upon our segmentation by organisation and by specific job function, coupled with our processing of personal data within the context of a business environment, we believe that any individual that receives correspondence from Lead Forensics in a direct marketing or sales capacity, could be legitimately interested in the Lead Forensics solution.  It is also deemed that direct marketing and sales is necessary in the context of promoting Lead Forensics to professionals in business in order to increase awareness of our SaaS solution in the marketplace.

Per the ICO guidance, Lead Forensics can confirm:

We have checked that legitimate interests is the most appropriate basis

We understand our responsibility to protect the individuals interests

We have conducted a legitimate interests assessment (LIA) and kept a record of it, to ensure that we can justify our decision

We have identified the relevant legitimate interests

We have checked that the processing is necessary and there is no less intrusive way to achieve the same result

We have done a balancing test, and are confident that the individuals interests do not override those legitimate interests

We only use individuals data in ways they would reasonably expect

We are not using peoples data in ways they would find intrusive or which could cause them harm

We do not process the data of children

We have considered safeguards to reduce the impact where possible

We will always ensure there is an opt-out / ability to object

Our LIA did not identify a significant privacy impact, and therefore we do not require a DPIA

We keep our LIA under review every six months, and will repeat it if circumstances change

We include information about our legitimate interests in our privacy notice

Cookies are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individuals hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes. Cookies allow the Site to remember important information that will make your use of the site more convenient. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the lifetime of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value.

Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Site, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data). We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the Site to help customize your Indeed web experience. We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances.

Like most websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes in order to improve your online experience, for analytics and for marketing, but specifically we use Cookies on the Site for the following purposes:

We use cookies to analyze user activity in order to improve the Site. For example, we can use cookies to look at aggregate patterns like the average number of job searches that users perform. We can use such analysis to gain insights about how to improve the functionality and user experience of the Site.

We use cookies to gather certain information about users, such as browser type, server, language preference, and country setting, in order to store user preferences on our Site to make your user experience more consistent and convenient.

Indeed does not and cannot collect any of the job seekers personally identifiable information and does not have access to the cookies in the employers domain.

Indeed may also collect information about web sites and web pages you visit through our mobile software or while using Indeed for Chrome, and this may include third-party sites and web pages. We only do this in order to allow a Job Seeker to keep a record of particular Job Listings of interest, to detect a job application form on a third-party website to give a Job Seeker the option to auto-fill parts of the form using Indeed Resume, or to confirm an application.

When You Log In or Use Indeed from Some Third-Party Sites

You may also create an account or log in to your Indeed account using third-party websites including, but not limited to, Facebook or Google. If you do not already have an Indeed account but log in to Indeed using your Facebook or Google account, this creates an Indeed account using the same email address used in your Facebook or Google account.

In particular, Indeed shall not retain Personal Data for any longer than necessary for the purposes of performing the processing outlined in this Privacy Policy.

If you create an Indeed account, your information may be collected and stored in a manner that connects to your account email address. Indeed may also create and assign to your device an identifier that is similar to an account number. We may collect the name you have associated with your device, device type, telephone number, country, and any other information you choose to provide, such as user name, email address, or zip code. For example, while using a mobile device to access Indeed, Indeed may provide a Job Seeker with relevant job postings that are located within the same zip code as where this activity is taking place. The collection of this data is solely used in accordance with the purposes outlined in sections 4, 5 and 9 of this Privacy Policy, to the extent applicable.

Indeed may also store the information detailed in this section 2 of the Privacy Policy on its equipment or the equipment of third parties that Indeed has a relationship with. Such storage services will be governed by appropriate protections, as required by applicable rules.

Indeed will indicate to you at the point of provision as to whether or not particular Personal Data provided by you is required in order to provide particular Indeed services or features to you. Where Personal Data that is required is not provided by you then the particular feature or service may not be available to you.

2.6 The Legal Basis on Which Indeed Collects Your Personal Data

Indeed collects and processes your Personal Data on the basis of different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the Personal Data being provided and the type of processing involved. More information is provided on this here.

Most of the Personal Data processed by Indeed is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement. An example of this would be where Indeed matches Job Seekers with Employers.

A second ground relied upon by Indeed for other types of processing of your Personal Data is that it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by Indeed. Such legitimate interests will include where Indeed sends you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, or where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention. Indeed will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.

Compliance with a Legal Obligation

A third ground relied upon for certain types of processing is that it is necessary in order to allow Indeed comply with a legal obligation. An example of this would be where Indeed is required to retain business records for fixed periods of time in order to comply with local legal requirements.

Finally, in certain limited situations, Indeed relies on your consent in order to process your Personal Data. Where Indeed requires your consent in order to collect and process certain Personal Data, we seek your consent at the time of provision, and such processing will only be performed where consent is secured. For example, your consent will be sought where you provide your location when you use Indeeds Job Spotter, or in certain instances where you initiate a job alert with Indeed (detailed in section 4 of this Privacy Policy).

3.1 Where a Job Seeker Wants to Close an Account

When a Job Seeker closes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data we make available under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data from a previous account will not become available to the Job Seeker again.Please also note that closing your Job Seeker account may result in you losing access to all Indeed products and the ability to utilize the Log in with Indeed feature found on certain third party sites.

Indeed reserves the right to keep any materials in a closed account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights to the extent permitted by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, if requested to retain by law enforcement). A closed account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the Indeed systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seekers original account name. When the Job Seeker presses the close account button on the dashboard, Indeed will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days.

If a Job Seeker wishes to access or delete their Personal Data held by Indeed, they should follow the steps listed in section 10 of this Privacy Policy, and such a request will be processed in accordance with applicable rules.

3.2 Where an Employer Wants to Close an Employer Account

Employers may close an account at any time by contactingIndeed Customer Support. Please note that Indeed must preserve business records pertaining to that account to comply with its obligations under law. Alternatively, if an Employer agent wishes to access or delete their Personal Data held by Indeed, they should follow the steps listed in section 10 of this Privacy Policy, and such a request will be processed in accordance with applicable rules.

3.3 Where a Job Seeker Wants to Delete a Job Application

If a Job Seeker wants to delete a job application performed on Indeeds Site, they are advised to contact the prospective Employer directly to request deletion of their application. For job applications which you, the Job Seeker submit through Indeed (including the use of an Indeed Apply button) to an Employer, (with related materials submitted), please note: 1) that your applications and materials may be controlled by an Employer; 2) we may direct you to that Employer for Personal Data deletion requests where that Personal Data is held by that Employer; and 3) Indeed depends on the Employer or the Employers agent to provide Indeed with the correct destination for all applications.

3.4 Where the Employer Contact Details Provided to Indeed Are Incorrect

In the event that the electronic destination provided to Indeed is incorrect, your application materials will not be sent to the intended recipient of the application. Indeed has no liability for such applications. If you do not wish to send your application materials in this manner, you should send them directly to the Employer.

When communicating through Indeeds message relay system, you will see an email address with an @indeedemail.com or @indeedmail.com ending. You understand that you retain no ownership rights in these email addresses, which are specific to Employers Job Listings, but are owned by Indeed. However, Indeeds relay system will show the name associated with your account or job application in the To: or From: field.

Please also note that since these message proxy and relay services depend on the functionality of third-party providers, there may be technical delays on the part of those email service providers.

Indeed may use third-party partners to perform these activities on Indeeds behalf.

If appropriate, in these circumstances we will either notify you of our sources or seek your consent to their use.

2. How we use your personal information and the basis on which we use it

We use your personal information to:

(a) to provide our services and fulfil our contractual obligations to you and other third parties

(b) to review, process and manage claims

(i) to exercise, defend and protect our legal rights or the rights of third parties

(j) to comply with legal obligations and to cooperate with regulatory bodies to which we are subject

(k) for research and development of new insurance products

We must have a legal basis to process your personal information. In most cases the legal basis will be one of the following:

(a) to complete necessary pre-contractual checks to ensure that we can assess your suitability for the insurance products we offer

(b) to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, for example to provide the services you request and to ensure that invoices are paid correctly. Failure to provide this information may prevent or delay the fulfilment of these contractual obligations

We encourage you to contact us to update or correct your information if it changes or if the personal information we hold about you is inaccurate. We will contact you if we need additional information from you in order to honour your requests.

The way we analyse personal information for the purposes of e.g. risk assessment or fraud prevention may involve profiling, which means that we may process your personal information using software that is able to evaluate your personal aspects and predict risks or outcomes. We may also use profiling, or otherwise employ solely automated means, to make decisions about you that relate to the basis on which we provide insurance to you. This is known as automated decision-making and is only permitted when we have a legal basis for this type of decision-making.

We may make automated decisions about you:

Where such decisions are necessary for entering into a contract. For example, we may decide not to offer insurance to you, or we may decide on the types of insurance that are suitable for you, or how much to charge you for our products based on your credit history and other financial information we have collected about you
