How We Use Personal Data
The data we collect is used for three basic purposes, described in more detail below: (1) to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the products we offer, (2) to send communications, including promotional communications, and (3) for some products, to show advertising.
In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we have built-in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations.
Providing and improving our products. We use data to provide and improve the products we offer. This includes operating the products, maintaining and improving the performance of the products, including developing new features, research, and providing customer support. Examples of such uses include the following:
- Providing the Products. We use data to carry out your transactions with us and to provide our products to you. Often, those products include personalized features and recommendations that enhance your productivity and enjoyment, and automatically tailor your product experiences based on the data we have about your activities, interests and location.
- Customer support. We use data to diagnose product problems, repair customers’ devices, and provide other customer care and support services.
- Product activation. We use data – including device and application type, location, and unique device, application, network and subscription identifiers – to activate software and devices that require activation.
- Product Improvement. We use data to continually improve our products, including adding new features or capabilities, such as using error reports to improve security features.
- Security, Safety and Dispute Resolution. We use data to protect the security and safety of our products and our customers, to detect and prevent fraud, to confirm the validity of software licenses, to resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Communications. We use data we collect to deliver and personalize our communications with you. For example, we may contact you by email or other means to inform you when a subscription is ending, let you know when security updates are available, notify you about new releases, update you or inquire about a service or repair request, invite you to participate in a survey.
Reasons We Share Personal Data
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any product you have logged in. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so, such as when you send an email to a friend, share photos and documents on OneDrive, or link accounts with another service. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction.
