Collection of your Personal Information

We collect certain Personal Information when you: (a) register to receive software, data, services or products (b) register to attend a training or other event; (c) register to receive newsletters or other information about our products, data, software, services or events; (d) download software, data, a brochure or information from the Site; or (e) submit a specific enquiry to us in respect of which you would like us to answer you.

Depending on the circumstances for collection, Personal Information that we collect is usually any or all of the following: salutation, your name, title, date of birth, address, country or location, employer, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers (including mobile), fax number, language. We may also collect other Personal Information from you when needed to provide data, software, a product, service or other information that you requested. For example, if it is a transaction for which we require payment, such as making an on-line purchase or booking a training course, we will request Personal Information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as name of recipient, delivery address and payment card details.

You are under no obligation to provide this information, but if you don’t, then we may not be able to provide you with certain services or personalise your experience and tailor our services for you.

When you want to use any restricted area of the Site, you may need an email address, a user ID and/or password allocated to or selected by you. This is also Personal Information which we hold about you.

When you install a new software or data product, we may ask you to register your licence electronically. We may keep this registration information on file with any information you've already given us on previous visits to the Site.

Non Personal Information

We may also collect certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times and referring website addresses. You cannot be identified from this information and it is only used to assist us in providing an effective service on the Site.

We may also collect information about which pages you visit within the Site.

Use of your Personal Information

Aside from the uses described above, we may use your Personal Information to: ensure the Site is relevant to your needs; deliver or provide data, software, products, services or events that you request, purchase, license or attend; bill you in respect to orders or bookings; contact you; publish content most relevant to you; and allow you access to limited-entry areas of the Site. Further, we may send you newsletters, publications or other information about the Site or other websites or other companies in our group (or those offering complementary products or services) which we think you may find useful, including information about new ESRI (UK) products and services. If you would like to stop receiving details about our group's events, services, products, software, websites or other information from us, please notify us at the above address setting out what you would like to stop receiving.

We may also use your Personal Information for the purposes of surveys in order to improve our services. We may carry out research on the demographics, interests and behaviour of all our customers so that we may provide more relevant content.

We may occasionally hire other organisations to provide limited services on our behalf, for example to mail out regular communications and newsletters or to promote particular events, software and services, to process event registration and our group's marketing purposes. If at any time you do not wish to receive these details, please contact us in the way set out above. We may also pass on your details to financial organisations for processing your payment card details including using an outside payment card processing business to bill users for data, software, products, services or events. We do not permit these businesses to retain, share, store or use Personal Information for any secondary purposes. We will provide those businesses only the information they need to deliver their service.

We may transfer our databases containing your Personal Information if we transfer our business or part of it.

Other than as set out in this Privacy Statement, we will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties without obtaining your prior consent unless this is necessary to provide any of our services or unless we are required to do so by law or if Esri Ireland believes that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights, property or personal safety of Esri Ireland and the Site, visitors to the Site and customers of our services. We may transfer your Personal Information to any other company in our group which provides any complementary services, products, data, software or events. The Site may contain advertising of third parties or links or frames to other websites. If you visit these sites, you should read their privacy policies.
