This enables us to provide you with a better service - for example, if we detect you are using a device with a small screen, our website will change layout to better suit your device. We use your IP address and/or selected preferences to very roughly approximate your location, providing you with a better experience - for example, if we detect you are in France, we will display pricing in Euros.

- Information from third parties: We have a global network of partners who market and resell our products and services. When you purchase our products and services through our partners, we receive information from these partners, such as your company name, what country you are in, what products and services you may wish to purchase, and technical contact information.
How we use collected information:
