It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities. If you elect to engage in these activities, however, SoftAtHome may ask that you provide us personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), e-mail address, telephone and facsimile numbers, and other personal information. When ordering products or services on the Website, you may be asked to provide a credit card number. Depending upon the activity, some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary.

Without expressly informing you in each particular circumstance, we do not match such information with any of your personal information. When you submit personal information to SoftAtHome through the Website, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in any of the countries in which SoftAtHome and its affiliates and subsidiaries maintain offices, including without limitation, France and Belgium.

The Website may contain links to websites maintained by third parties who may request and collect your personal information. Unless expressly provided to the contrary, personal information that you provide while you are visiting such a website will be subject to the privacy policy posted on such other website. In order to reduce errors in our database, authenticate our users and prevent abuse of our system we may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit to us with information from third party sources.
