INFORMATION COLLECTED BY ADT – GENERAL USERS
In general, you can visit this Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. ADT’s web servers may collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This data helps us determine what is most beneficial for our users and how to continually create a better overall experience for them. This data does not include personally identifying information.
ADT may gather Personal Information so that we can improve and personalize your experience with ADT. Information that we collect falls into the following primary categories. We may receive Personal Information that you enter into the Site, provide in an online form, or provided by you in any other way. You can choose not to provide some or all of the Personal Information we ask for, but this may prevent you from using some of our Site’s services and/or features.
In addition to the preceding categories of Personal Information, ADT also collects certain non-identifiable information (the “Non-Identifiable Information”). Whenever you interact with ADT, we receive and store certain types of Non-Identifiable Information. For example, we may use “cookies” to obtain information when your web browser accesses this Site. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier which we transfer to your computer via your Web browser and store on your computer’s hard drive. The cookie file allows us to recognize your computer when you visit our Site. On most web browsers you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie, and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they may enable you to take advantage of some of our Site’s best features.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND OTHER NON-IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
ADT uses the Personal Information you provide to us through this Site in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement. If you provide Personal Information for a certain reason, we may use it in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by e-mail, we may use the Personal Information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. If you contact us about a job listing, we may use your Personal Information to consider you for the position. ADT also with your due request and consent uses your Personal Information and other Non-Identifiable Information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. ADT may also use your Personal Information to contact you, electronically or otherwise, in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you or to make it easier for you to use our site. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications.
INFORMATION COLLECTED BY ADT – CUSTOMERS

Each of these companies has its own policies with regard to the collection and use of Personal Information and this website is not responsible for their use of your information.
Agents: ADT, like many companies, may hire other companies to perform certain functions, such as mailing communications, sending e-mail and managing databases. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the Personal Information they need to complete the task and we endeavor to prohibit them from using that Personal Information for any other purpose.
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In transactions such as these, Personal Information may be one of the transferred business assets.

The requested information typically includes contact information such as name and shipping address, and demographic information such as zip code. If you choose to participate in any survey or contest, the information you provide will be shared with the contest/survey sponsors to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this Site.
