Privacy Notice: 2. What Data Does Tripwire Interactive Collect?

2.1          General Description

The specific data Tripwire Interactive collects, stores and processes depends on which products you use and how you use them. We collect personal data and non-personal user data and will disclose in this privacy notice the circumstances under which Tripwire Interactive collects either personal data or non-personal data.

For purposes of this Privacy Notice, Tripwire Interactive adopts the definition of personal data set forth in the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") at Article 4(1) which broadly defines personal data as "any information relating to an identified or identifiable person" and includes identifiers such as a name, online identifiers such as an IP address, and email addresses. This is not an exhaustive list, but a few examples aimed at helping you understand what constitutes personal data. Non-personal user data is data that should not identify a person or to allow Tripwire Interactive to contact a specific person. Some examples of non-personal data are information about a user's computer operating system or browser, the number of users that visit Tripwire Interactive's website and the pages of the website which are visited, as well as usage data as to certain features of Tripwire Interactive games that is not connected to any particular user. These are examples and not an exhaustive list of all types of non-personal data.

If you are from the United States, you may be accustomed to the term "personally identifiable information" or "PII" to describe personal data. For purposes of this Privacy Notice, personally identifiable information is personal data as defined in Article 4(1) of the GDPR except as specified under Children.

Where this Privacy Notice describes processing personal data, Tripwire Interactive adopts the definition of "processing" set forth under Article 4(2) of the GDPR: "processing" means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
