Terms of Use

Your privacy is very important to us. At MarketLogic, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, produce our services, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.

Disclaimer

Any business relationship arising out of your contact with us initiated through this website [or that you became aware of our services through this website] will be the subject of a separate written binding agreement or engagement letter. There will be no duty imposed on either you or us, and no other obligations shall exist, unless and until a separate acceptable written agreement or engagement letter for services is entered into by you and us.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, MarketLogic collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. MarketLogic’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how MarketLogic visitors use our website. From time to time, MarketLogic may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

MarketLogic also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. MarktLogic only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to MarketLogic’s website choose to interact with MarketLogic in ways that require MarketLogic to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that MarketLogic gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who visit our Contact Us page to provide an email address. In this case, MarketLogic collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with MarketLogic. MarketLogic does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

MarketLogic may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, MarketLogic may monitor the most popular pages on the site. MarketLogic may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, MarketLogic does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

MarketLogic discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on MarketLogic’s behalf or to provide services requested, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using MarketLogic’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. MarketLogic will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, MarketLogic discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when MarketLogic believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of MarketLogic, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the MarketLogic website and have supplied your email address, MarketLogic may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with MarketLogic and our services. We primarily use our various blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a direct email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. MarketLogic takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of MarketLogic may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
