Intersolve is able to acquire your e-mail address in various ways, for example by retrieving information via the site. In addition, anonymous data can be obtained that are linked to your Internet Protocol address (IP address). When you call up a web page the web server needs to know where the page has to be sent. Your IP address is used for this. The IP address is a series of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet provider every time that you login to the Internet in order for your computer to be identified. It is not possible for us to use your IP address alone to find out your identity unless you have personally notified us of this. We are only able to determine that the receiving computer is located in a specific area of the country. The information linked to the IP address, such as search terms and websites that you have visited cannot, therefore, in principle be tracked back to you. These anonymous data can provide us with a picture of the behaviour and interests of people who visit our websites.
We only use your personal data to execute the agreement that we have entered into with you. We would also like to use your personal data to notify you about new services or products offered by Intersolve. If you do not (or no longer) appreciate receiving this information you can notify us accordingly via our e-mail address. Immediately after receiving your request we will stop sending you marketing information.
We do not issue personal data to third parties unless we are obliged to do so under law or if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement that Intersolve has concluded with you.
We also use what are known as cookies in order to ensure that our websites, products and services better meet your wishes and preferences. A cookie is a simple small file that is sent with pages from this website [and/or Flash applications] and which is stored on the hard disk of your computer by your browser.
