Scope of this Policy
Collecting your Personal Information
Personal information is information that identifies you individually, such as your name, address, email address, company name, phone number, or other identifying information that is specific to you.
Personal information is collected by Qlik on our websites, for example when you register for such items as events, newsletters, reports, software or documentation downloads, or discussion groups. Personal information collected by Qlik often is limited to your name, email address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested or to support your use of our products. Qlik may also obtain personal data from third-parties.
Qlik also operates a public forum, Qlik Community. The purpose of this forum is to discuss our products and services; any personal information you choose to post in Qlik Community may be read, collected or used by other visitors (for example, to send to you unsolicited messages). Qlik is not responsible for any personal information you may choose to provide in Qlik Community.

We may also collect information about how your device has interacted with our website, including use of a website recording service which may record mouse clicks, mouse movements, and page scrolling. Anonymized information we collect about you may become associated with you once you provide your personal information by submitting a form. In such cases, we will treat all such information as personal information.
