Pimcore takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we store what data and how we use it. Find out about the choices you have regarding our collection of your information. This policy covers the pimcore.com website and all *.pimcore.com/org subsites (called collectively "Website").

What Information We Collect
We collect non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII") from and about you:
- Demographic information about you
- Information about your computer system or device, your preferences, your online activity, and your location information
Non-PII, by itself, does not identify you, but it can be combined with other information in way that allows you to be identified. If this happens, we will treat the combined information as PII.
How We Collect Information
We collect information from or about you in the following ways:

We collect information provided by you when you (1) communicate with us or request information about or from us by e-mail or other means; (2) participate in our online forums, (3) fill out forms or fields on this Website; (4) sign-up for any of our newsletters, materials or our services on this Website or other sites; or (5) participate in our online surveys or questionnaires.
- Automatic Information Collection. We also use automatic data collection technologies to collect and store certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns when you interact with this Website through your computer or mobile device.
