Trial Privacy Notice
I agree that Autodesk may send me communications (by email, phone, in-product, and/or on the Autodesk website), including personalized content about new products and special promotions, and that Autodesk may collect, analyze, and use information about my trial evaluation, including trial product usage and information gathered on Autodesk websites though cookies. This Privacy Notice provides additional detail about the information we collect through this product trial.
Autodesk is offering this trial period to learn more about how users interact with our products and to provide users with more personalized information about our offerings. We handle personal information received through this trial period in accordance with the Autodesk Privacy Statement.
Autodesk may use in-product tools to collect information related to your use of our trial product (for example: which features are used, time using the product). 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
This product usage information collection will end after the trial period.
In addition, Autodesk may combine this product usage information with information available on other Autodesk systems (such as past purchase and evaluation information, industry, company size) and your accessing or downloading marketing materials on Autodesk websites (like webcasts, white papers, videos, participation in discussion forums, and other materials related to your product evaluation). When visiting Autodesk.com and related web pages, a cookie (ID) to uniquely identify a computer (as proxy for a “visitor”) will be created and maintained on that visitor’s computer. This ID will permit tracking the Autodesk web usage/activity of a “visitor” across multiple visits for as long as the cookie is maintained on the visitor’s computer. This ID will not collect information about activity on non-Autodesk websites.
In return for providing you access to a fully functional product, Autodesk may communicate with you. These communications may include: in-product screens, emails, telephone contact, and content displayed to you on Autodesk websites.
To create a more personalized, engaging evaluation experience, Autodesk may use data we collect about you to determine which communications will be most relevant. For example, if you indicate that you are involved in civil engineering, we may communicate information that we have found to be relevant to civil engineers. In another example, if you indicate that you are an experienced (vs. new) user, we may communicate information to you that is designed to be relevant to experienced users.
