CadLine may collect both Aggregate Information and Personally Identifiable Information on the Site. "Aggregate Information" is information that describes the habits and other behavioural traits of the users of the Site as a group but does not indicate the identity of a particular user. Generally, this information is collected through "traffic data" and may entail the use of "Cookies", "IP addresses" or other numeric codes used to identify a computer. The use of "Cookies" on the site is explained in more detail below in the IP Address and Cookies section.
Personally Identifiable Information
• Other information you upload or provide to us.
USE OF AGGREGATE INFORMATION
CadLine may use Aggregate Information to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behaviour of our registered users and visitors, to measure user behaviour regarding specific areas of the Site and to analyse how and where best to use our resources. Without such data, we would not know which parts of the Site are the most popular, and we would not be able to change and update the content and services appropriately.
We may use Aggregate Information to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Site, and for product monitoring and improvement.
CadLine also may use the Aggregate Information collected to let our partners know the number of people who have certain browser characteristics and the number of those people who have seen and/or "clicked" on individual advertisement(s). No Personally Identifiable Information will be disclosed to these partners as part of this process.
USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
CadLine does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about you except when you specifically provide such information on a voluntary basis, as prompted by the Site in the circumstances described below.
(b) E-Mail Promotions: If you choose to receive promotional e-mails from CadLine, we will ask you to provide CadLine with your e-mail address. If at any time after you subscribe to receive e-mail promotions, you may unsubscribe by replying to CadLine with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject heading of your e-mail.
(c) Contests: We may ask you for Personally Identifiable Information when you enter a contest sponsored by CadLine. If you enter a contest on the Site, we will use the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to contact you in the event that you win.
(d) To follow-up on product trial download requests. When requesting product information or a trial of our software, you may be asked to provide your Personally Identifiable Information and whether you would like to request a product demonstration. CadLine uses this personal information to send you the download link of the product(s) requested via email and to engage with you regarding product information, pricing and subscription information, order details, as well as to send you information regarding event participation and other marketing related activities. By providing this information, you are agreeing that CadLine can contact you, send you important information about our products, including new product updates and releases. You may opt out of our email communication at any time.
Product and Service Purchases/Enquiries: We ask for Personally Identifiable Information when you purchase a product or service through CadLine's E-Store, or if you wish to become a licensed user of a CadLine product, such as ARCHLine.XP. When you purchase a product or service, CadLine will collect your credit card and shipping information for billing purposes. CadLine does not store, use or share your credit card information for any other purpose. CadLine uses security techniques, including encryption and secure servers, to help protect against unauthorized access to transmitted information used for billing purposes.
CadLine will collect Personally Identifiable Information from you when you request additional information about a particular product or service listed on the Site, so that a CadLine sales representative or local partner is able to contact you to provide the information you have requested.
(e) Service/Support Related Correspondence: If you register to use a CadLine product or otherwise purchase a product from this Site, CadLine may use your e-mail contact information to deliver technical support-related service information, as applicable. We will not send you unrelated promotional e-mails unless you have specifically asked to receive them. If you register to use a CadLine product or otherwise purchase a product from this Site, you will not be able to unsubscribe from receiving technical support-related service e-mails (unless your license rights expire or are terminated), as these e-mails are considered part of the service you have chosen.
(f) Correspondence: If you contact CadLine, we may keep a record of that correspondence. If you communicate with CadLine via e-mail, we may keep a record of your e-mail address, but we will not disclose your e-mail address except as permitted under this Privacy Statement.
(g) To assess usage of our Services. CadLine may track your usage of our Services (e.g., ARCHLine.XP) to determine your level of usage, and those usage statistics may be made available to CadLine hosting provider and your company or institution.
SHARING OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

DATA STORAGE AND SECURITY
Information collected by CadLine is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. All of our employees are dedicated to maintaining and upholding your privacy and security and are aware of our privacy and security policies.
While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that data, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others.
How long we keep information. How long we keep information we collect about you depends on the type of information, as described in further detail below. After such time, we will either delete or anonymize your information or, if this is not possible (for example, because the information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your information and isolate it from any further use until deletion is possible.
Account information. We retain your account information for as long as your account is active and a reasonable period thereafter in case you decide to re-activate cloud services.
Managed accounts. If CadLine is made available to you through an organization (e.g., your employer), we retain your information as long as required by the administrator of your account.
