The length of time a cookie will remain on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a persistent or session cookie. Session cookies will only remain on your computer or mobile device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
Clear GIFs: Clear GIFs are small graphic images (in GIF or other image format) placed on a webpage, web-based document, or in an email message. Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (e.g., only 1-by-1 pixel) and either transparent or the same color as the background of the webpage, document or email message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect Personal Information about you. We may, however, use clear GIFs to capture non-Personal Information, such as statistical usage information for pages, features or other elements on the Channels or through EFI email messages that are delivered to you. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on the Channels or in our emails.
Website Logs: EFI may collect information in the form of website logs (collectively “Logs”). These Logs are files that record activity on the Channels and gather statistics about users’ activities, such as how many users have visited the Channels, how often, how many “hits” a particular webpage has received, type and quality of the user’s Internet connection to the Channels, and identification of the user’s hardware and software. The entries comprising the Logs may contain IP addresses, user IDs, and identification of the Internet service provider that provides your connection to the Internet. Generally, we use the Logs to operate and improve the Channels, to identify the popularity of certain features, to assist with internal marketing and demographic studies, and to enable us to assess overall efficiency and activity on the Channels.
Communications Within the Channels: EFI may collect information that you submit when posting messages through a Channel forum. Any user communications within the Channels, such as on the forums, should not be considered private and such communications may be viewed and saved by others. EFI is under no obligation to monitor user communications but reserves the right to act on reports of misconduct or abuse of communications privileges. Because communications may be widely viewed and/or heard, we caution users to avoid revealing any Personal Information on the Channel forums.

Examples include, but are not limited to: (i) companies that host or help to administer the Channels; (ii) companies that help to process an order for a product, which may include completing the order, obtaining export clearance, or arranging for shipping and handling; (iii) companies that provide payment and billing services; (iv) companies that conduct surveys or assist EFI in its promotional activities such as contacting you by email or over the telephone; (v) shipping companies that deliver products, third party advertisers or promotional partners who provide a product or service to you; (vi) customer support specialists; (vii) web hosting and Internet service providers; and (viii) data analysis firms.

EFI requires that any such third parties protect the confidentiality of Personal Information they collect or have access to in the course of their engagement with EFI.
Marketing Materials: From time to time, EFI may share your Personal Information with other companies, so that these third parties may provide you with a special offer or promotion that we think you may find valuable. Unless you specifically tell us that you do not want to receive these special offers, we may share your Personal Information. See how you can opt-out below, to tell us that you do not want us to share your Personal Information for these purposes.
Sale or Transfer of Information: In the event of a merger, acquisition, spin-off or other transaction related to EFI, an EFI business unit or a portion of EFI’s assets, EFI may transfer the information collected from you, including Personal Information, to the surviving party, acquiring party or other party related to the transaction.
Compliance with Law and Fraud Protection: EFI reserves the right to disclose the information it collects from you if EFI believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law or a legal process, to avoid liability for EFI and/or its agents and partners, and/or to protect the rights and property (including intellectual property) of EFI and others, including EFI’s agents, partners and customers. Further, EFI may disclose the information it collects if EFI suspects that an individual or entity has provided fraudulent or illegal information, has committed an illegal, fraudulent or wrongful act or omission, has attempted to pose as someone else, or has attempted an unauthorized use or access of any computer system or website.
Accountability for Onward Transfers: EFI will acquire assurances from partners, service providers and third parties to ensure that they apply the same level of safeguards to protect Personal Information consistent with this Privacy Statement. EFI complies with the Privacy Shield Principles regarding liability for onward transfers.
How You Can Opt-Out
You have choices about how your Personal Information is used by EFI and shared with third parties. For any commercial emails that you receive from EFI, you have the option to unsubscribe from those messages by following the instructions in the applicable email. You may also opt-out by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by including in the subject line of your message, “Remove EFI”. Please note that if you unsubscribe, but later request to receive commercial emails from EFI, you will receive these commercial emails and be subject to this Privacy Statement, but will continue to have the right to unsubscribe again if you desire.
If you do not want EFI to share your Personal Information with third parties so that they may send you information concerning products or services that we believe may be of interest, you may opt-out by sending an email to email@example.com by including in the subject line of your message, “Remove Third Parties”.
Please note that your opt-out rights only apply as described above. EFI may still process and disclose your information as described in this Privacy Statement. In addition, if your information already has been shared with a third party, like an EFI partner, and you no longer wish to receive commercial emails from that party, you must follow the unsubscribe instructions from the applicable third party. Please reference the section titled, Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties above for more information.
Our Commitment to Child’s Data
Protecting the privacy of the young is especially important. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information through the Channels from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of the Channels are structured to attract anyone under 13. If EFI becomes aware that any person submitting Personal Information to us is under the age of 13, we will delete that Personal Information.
While EFI cannot guarantee complete security of the information we collect from you, we have implemented technical and organizational measures to aid in the prevention of unauthorized access to, and improper use of, loss, disclosure, alteration or destruction of the information we collect from you and to aid in the accurate maintenance of this information. You should be aware, however, that EFI has no control over the security of other websites or services on the Internet that you might visit even when a link may appear to direct you to websites and services from EFI. We want you to feel confident using the Channels; however, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information, other communications or content always will remain secure.
Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
EFI will use Personal Information only for the purpose in which it was collected from you. EFI will have steps in place to ensure that the Personal Information is used for its intended use, and is accurate, complete and up to date. EFI will also ensure that the Personal Information is only stored for the time needed to fulfil its purpose. This obligation does not prevent EFI from processing Personal Information for longer periods for the time and to the extent such processing reasonably serves the purposes of archiving in the public interest, journalism, literature and art, scientific or historical research, and statistical analysis. In these cases, such processing shall be subject to the other Principles and provisions of the Privacy Shield Framework.
The information that EFI collects from you may be collected, transferred to, stored and processed in the United States and any other country in which EFI and its agents and partners maintain facilities.
Where required by law, EFI will grant individuals access to their Personal Information and/or amend, delete, correct or provide access their Personal Information if it is inaccurate or being processed in violation of law. If you would like to contact EFI to make a request please contact us at the following:
Electronics For Imaging, Inc.
6750 Dumbarton Circle
Fremont, CA 94555
You may correct factual errors in your Personal Information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. EFI reserves the right to verify your identity before granting access to Personal Information or making corrections and reserves the right to deny access to anyone who does not confirm their identity to EFI’s satisfaction.
