What information do we gather?

Information on Adaptive is gathered in two ways:

When you visit our site, our software automatically collects some information from your computer. The information includes the unique Internet address assigned to your computer, your Internet service provider, your browser type and version, and your operating system.

We also collect information when you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, if you ask for more information on the services that Adaptive provides, we may store and use the information you provide for marketing purposes. If you submit a technical question to us, we may store your question and we may contact you if we need clarification on the question. Also, we may post your question along with our answer on our site. However, we will not include your last name or email address if we post an answer to your question.

Similarly, if you contact us through our site to inquire about employment opportunities with Adaptive, we may collect and store the information you provide for recruiting purposes. On the recruiting site, you will be asked for information necessary for the recruiting process such as your name, contact information and technical experience. When applying for job positions in Adaptive you provide your consent to the following uses of your CV/Resume by Adaptive:
(1) Adaptive, its affiliates, and agents will store, access, and use the information in any jurisdiction, including jurisdictions whose privacy laws may be different and less protective than those of your home jurisdiction; and
