NORTON MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE SITE, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS AND/OR PRODUCTS INCLUDED ON THIS SITE. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, NORTON DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND/OR NONINFRINGMENT.

Norton hereby authorizes you to copy documents published on this Site for non-commercial use within your organization only. In consideration of this authorization, you agree that any copy of these documents that you make shall retain all copyright and other proprietary notices contained herein.
Each individual document published by Norton on the Site may contain other proprietary notices and copyright information relating to that individual document. Nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring by implication, estoppel or otherwise any license or right under any patent or trademark of Norton or any third party. Except as expressly provided above nothing contained herein shall be construed as conferring any license or right under any Norton copyright.
Note that any product, process, or technology used or displayed on this Site may be the subject of other intellectual property rights reserved by Norton, and may not be licensed hereunder.
Any feedback or other information collected from users or customers of the Site, such as comments, suggestions, or the like regarding the content of the Site, shall be deemed to be non-confidential and Norton shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such information and shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute the information to others without limitation. Further, Norton shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in such information for any purpose whatsoever including but not limited to developing, producing and marketing products incorporating such information.
All trademarks used on the Site are trademarks of Norton unless otherwise indicated.
Norton may provide hyperlinks to other Internet sites. Norton is not responsible for the availability of such other sites and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, products or other materials available on such other sites.
This Site takes every precaution to protect user information. When users submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just “surfing”.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
Information Collection and Use
Norton is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site. Norton will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Norton collects information from our users at several different points on our Site.
Certain transactional information must be supplied to Norton to place an order. This information includes contact information (e.g., personal name, Company name, shipping address and email address) and financial information (e.g., credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for solely for billing and collection purposes. The contact information may also be used by us in connection with certain marketing activities such as a promotion or new product announcements. Norton will refrain from making these types of communications to customers who have opted out of these programs as described further below.
Norton may also collect other information from customers and visitors to the Site such as the user’s IP address, domain name, length of time spent on the Site, and the pages accessed during each visit to the Site. Norton uses this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. Norton may also employ the use of “cookies” to facilitate the administration of the Site or enhance our customers’ use of the Site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our Site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our Site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our Site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site.
Sharing of Information
Norton reserves the right to share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. Norton also uses independent distributors to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
This Site may contain links to other web sites. Please be aware that Norton is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. Norton encourages our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.
Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, Norton will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us. This can usually be done at the member information page or by emailing our Customer Support.
Our users are given the opportunity to “opt-out” of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected by any outside parties. Norton does this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether they should proceed with services that require an outside party, or not.
