Personal information

At Intro Ops, we intend to give you as much control as possible over your personal information.

There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name and contact information. It is our intent to let you know before we collect personal information from you on the Internet.

If you choose to give us personal information via the Internet that we or our business partners may need — to correspond with you, process an order or provide you with personalized information services, for example — it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.

We analyze this data for trends and statistics, and then we discard it. We do not sell any contact data, web traffic data or web traffic analysis.

We have implemented these practices for the Intro Ops web site — we are also instructing our employees around the world to include information on privacy practices everywhere information is collected on the Intro Ops web, tailored to what that portion of the site does and reflecting the practices outlined here.

The Intro Ops site contains links to other web sites. Intro Ops is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such web sites.

We do use “cookie” technology – this is used to provide you with tailored information from our web site. A cookie is a small text-only file that is stored on your system. By definition, it cannot execute any malicious code or cause any damage to your system. Some pages on our web site use cookies so that we can better serve you when you return to our site – for example, it can “remember” your email address to save you having to enter it manually upon your return.

You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. For more information, please see how to work with cookies.

Working with cookies

A cookie is a very small text file placed on your hard drive by a web page server. It is essentially your identification card, and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. It is uniquely yours and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. A cookie’s purpose is to tell the server that you returned to that web page. A cookie saves you time. If you personalize pages, or register for products or services, a cookie helps MicroStrategy remember who you are. Next time you return, we know to show you the information you requested. Of course, if you never register or leave personal information with MicroStrategy, then the server only knows that someone with your cookie has returned to the web site. You are in charge of deciding whether we know anything about you. But the more you tell us about yourself, the more we can help you find information or products you want.

You can control which cookies you accept. You can order your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered. Then you can decide whether to accept one or not. Here is how to set your cookie preferences:
