In general, you can visit Hexagon PPM's Website and access information while remaining anonymous and without revealing any personal information. When you enter our Website, we can determine your domain name and what browser and operating system you are using, but we cannot determine any personal information about you. PPM uses this information only to scale technical implementation to match our audience's browser capabilities.
When requesting information from us or entering secure areas of our Website, we do require that you provide some information about yourself by "registering" or completing an online form. Situations in which we will ask you to provide information include but are not limited to:

- When registering for a user forum or to attend an Hexagon PPM-sponsored event
- When participating in contests or surveys
- When registering an PPM product you have purchased
- When entering a limited-access, premium portion of our Website such as our customer support knowledge base, you must "register" to receive a username and password
The information we require is necessary to fulfill your request and to provide you further information about our products, services and support.We may ask additional questions about the primary business and size of your company, your professional role, or what products you currently use so that we can better tailor our Website and communications to your needs. Each online form will clearly specify which information is required and which is optional.
If you choose not to register and provide personal information, you can still use most of the PPM Website. However, you will not be able to access areas or receive services that require registration.
When We Disclose Your Information
Without your consent, Hexagon PPM will not share any personal information you provide online with any third party that is not an PPM agent, distributor, business partner, or affiliate, except to the limited extent necessary to fulfill your request for products, services, or support. PPM reserves the right, however, to disclose information as required by applicable law, in order to protect its rights or property, or in case PPM or a portion of its assets is sold.
Access and Accuracy
Upon request, Hexagon PPM will provide you with reasonable access to your personal information collected online, and will make reasonable efforts to correct, amend or delete such information, as appropriate.
If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend you send non-public personally identifiable information, such as passwords, social security numbers, or bank account information to us by e-mail. Furthermore, we may send you e-mail under the following circumstances:
- If you request a particular service or sign up for a feature that involves e-mail communications

- To otherwise facilitate a transaction between us
In certain instances, we may provide you with tools on the e-mails that will allow you to set your preferences for receiving e-mail communications from us; that is, agree to some communications but not others. You may "opt out" of receiving future commercial e-mail communications from us by clicking the "unsubscribe" link or following the other instructions included at the bottom of the e-mails we send; however, we reserve the right to send you transactional e-mails such as customer service communications.

Alternatively, you may contact us by using the "Contact Us" link on our website or by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide your name, country, and a method to contact you so we may appropriately respond to your request. You may also contact us if you:
- Wish to make corrections to any personally identifiable information you have provided to us
