Providing any information to us is optional. We will still do our best to fill your needs; it is just much easier to help you if we know what is important to you and have a way to contact you.
Throughout this document, we may use certain words or phrases, and it is important that you understand the meaning of them. The following is a non-exhaustive list of definitions of words and phrases found in this document:
Whenever you visit our Site, we may collect non-identifying information from you, such as your IP address, referring URL, browser, operating system, cookie information, and Internet Service Provider. Without a subpoena, voluntary compliance on the part of your Internet Service Provider, or additional records from a third party, this information alone cannot usually be used to identify you.
Some Programs and their Installers send anonymous information to McNeel servers. This anonymous information includes a randomly generated globally unique identifier (GUID) that is stored on your computer. This allows us to differentiate between one person experiencing a problem one hundred times, and one hundred people experiencing a problem one time each. Each product and installer provides an option to opt-out of sending anonymous usage statistics. See documentation for your product for details.

McNeel may post links to third-party websites on its Site or within its Programs. These third-party websites are not screened for privacy or security issues by McNeel, and you release us from any liability for the conduct of these third-party websites.
Although you are entering into an Agreement with McNeel to disclose your information to us, we do use third-party individuals or organizations to assist us, including contractors, web hosts, or others.
Throughout the course of our provision of our Service to you, we may delegate our authority to collect, access, use, and disseminate your information. For example, our web host stores the information that you provide to us, and we may hire outside contractors to perform maintenance or assist us in securing our Site.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you authorize us to collect, share, store, exchange, analyze, and otherwise use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics, Google BigQuery, Google Drive, Apple Inc., Dropbox, Flurry Analytics, and others.
At times it may become necessary to release your information in response to a request from a government agency or a private litigant. You agree that we may disclose your information to a third party where we believe, in good faith, that it is desirable to do so for a civil action, criminal investigation, or other legal matter. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you and release your information to third parties where we believe that it is prudent to do so for legal reasons, such as our belief that you have engaged in fraudulent activities. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.
We take certain measures to enhance the security of our Site and Service, as it is in our interest to do so. However, we make no representations as to the security or privacy of your information. It is in our interest to keep our websites secure, but we recommend that you use anti-virus software, firewalls, and other precautions to protect yourself from security threats.
