Personal Data We Collect

ALTEX collects data to provide you the best experiences with our organizations and products. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create an ALTEX account, administer your organization’s licensing account, submit a search query, register for an event, upload a document to our sites, or contact us for support. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our sites or products, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also obtain data from third parties.

  • When you engage with an ALTEX sales representative, we collect the name and contact data, along with information about the customer’s organization, to support that engagement.
  • When you interact with an ALTEX support professional, we may collect Device and Usage data or error reports to diagnose and resolve problems.
  • When you pay for products, we collect contact and payment data to process the payment.
  • When you visit our websites, we collect data via Google Analytics.
  • When a customer receives communications from you, we use data to personalize the content of the communication.
