Coverity collects various types of information from you to better meet your needs and to provide you with a more relevant user experience. Some of this information is collected automatically through cookies (a small text file placed on your computer) or other Internet tracking technologies. The type of information your browser or Internet session may automatically provide us with can include the browser you are using, your Internet domain, the operating system on your computer, your IP address and the URL you saw just before coming to the Coverity site, the pages of the site you visited and the URL of the page you visited upon leaving the site.

In addition, at some of the Coverity web sites, we collect information that you may choose to provide to us when requesting additional information from us. Examples of personally identifiable data that you may provide to us include name, address, and email address. If you provide personally identifiable data to us, you may later elect to have your information deleted from our files, or kept from being used for purposes other than for the service requested, by following the opt-out procedures set forth below.

How Collected Information is Used

The non-personally identifiable information that Coverity collects is used for marketing and sales efforts to better target advertisements and other content in an effort to create a more personally relevant experience.

If you elect to provide Coverity with personally identifiable information, we may utilize such information for marketing purposes, and this use may result in follow-up communications from Coverity. In addition, that information may be combined with information collected from other sources to assist with targeting ads to your preferences and behaviors, and for other Coverity sales and marketing efforts.
