May 12, 2016


You can visit without revealing who you are or any information about yourself. There are times, however, when the Eclipse Foundation or its Members ("We" or "Us") may need information from you. You may choose to give personal information, such as your name and address or e-mail id that may be needed, for example, to correspond with you. We intend to let you know how such information will be used before it is collected from you on the Internet. If you tell Us that you do not want Us to use this information as a basis for further contact with you, We will respect your wishes.

Information Security and Quality

We intend to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We have tried to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as using encryption for transmission of certain forms of information, to help keep that information secure, accurate, current, and complete.

We will make a sincere effort to respond in a timely manner to your requests to correct inaccuracies in your personal information. To correct inaccuracies in your personal information please return the message containing the inaccuracies to the sender with details of the correction requested.

We offer as a service to our community the ability for users of Eclipse software to store data on Eclipse Foundation servers through services including but not limited to the User Storage Service and the Automated Error Reporting Initiative. Any data stored through these services will be publicly available on the Internet in unencrypted form and without access restriction. Therefore you should not use this service to store passwords, any personally identifiable information, any confidential business information, or anything else that you do not want to be generally and publicly available.

Clickstream Data and Cookies

We sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to this Web site to help provide better service. For example, We keep track of the domains from which people visit and We also measure visitor activity on, but in ways that keep the information anonymous. This anonymous information is sometimes known as "clickstream data." We may use this data to analyze trends and statistics and to help us tailor the Web site to better serve Eclipse participants.

Also, when personal data is collected from you in connection with a transaction (such as contribution of code or posting to newsgroups) We may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level to help Us understand trends and patterns.

Some pages use cookies to better serve you when you return to the site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of some sites may not function properly.

To the extent Contributions and other Material (as defined in the Terms of Use) contain personal information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, we have the right to provide that information to others pursuant to the Term of Use.
