If you are in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, and/or Australia, as part of your trial we will collect product usage information and use it to send you personalized marketing communications. We also set a cookie that tracks your activities on our websites. Please read further for details. If you are in another country, this program will not apply to you.
Why we collect this information
We offer this trial period so we can learn more about how users like you work with our products. This helps us to improve them, and to provide you with more useful and personalized information about our products and services.
Product usage information
We may use in-product tools to collect information about your use of our trial product (for example: which features are used, time spent using the product). We stop collecting this product usage information when the trial period ends.
Here is a list of information we may collect, which is sent to our servers once a day in encrypted form:
· Operating system name and version
· System configuration information, such as processor, memory, and graphics card
· Autodesk product commands and operations used
· Aggregate time using the product
· Name, serial number, and version of Autodesk products on your system
· Error conditions
· Format and source of data imported or exported from Autodesk products
· IP address
We will set a cookie on your browser that will uniquely identify you as a visitor to www.autodesk.com (and subdomains like store.autodesk.com). This cookie will help us understand your activity on our website (for example, if you view certain pages, view a webcast, or participate in a discussion forum). However, this cookie will not collect information about your activities on other websites. You can delete this cookie using your browser settings.
In return for providing you access to a fully functional product, we may communicate with you by email, phone, in-product and/or content we display on the www.autodesk.com website. We want to give you a useful, personalized, and engaging evaluation experience. We will use the information we have collected about your trial product usage and website activity, and other information you might share with us, to help us decide what information will be most relevant and interesting to you. For example, if you indicate that you are involved in civil engineering, we may share information that we have found to be relevant to civil engineers. If you indicate that you are an experienced user or a newer user, we may communicate information to you that is designed to be relevant to your experience level.
