Some services provided by Mathematica require
Mathematica to access our servers through the internet. When this
occurs, our servers
receive information similar to the information that would be received if
you were browsing a website, together with your Mathematica
or Mathematica Activation Key and Mathematica machine
ID. Utilization of the Wolfram|Alpha functionality will trigger the
collection of information about the specific query. Additionally, some
queries may require an expanded set of information collection that can
include session information covering the history of Mathematica
evaluations or the content of Mathematica notebooks containing the
Wolfram|Alpha query. You will be given an opt-in prompt on a per-session
basis about this expanded Wolfram|Alpha information collection feature.
Certain functionality in Mathematica allows integration with Third-Party Sites (TPS), including but not limited to social networking sites such as Facebook.
Should you utilize such functionality, we may collect personally identifiable information about you from the profile you have established at the TPS. By authorizing
information that your privacy settings at the TPS allow Mathematica to access through the TPS application programming interface (API). The personally
identifiable information that Mathematica is allowed to access is affected by the privacy settings you have established at the TPS. Because the linkage
between any TPS and Mathematica is completely voluntary, and our ability to access your information at the TPS requires that linkage, you have a choice
whether or not to disclose such information.
You can choose to prevent Mathematica from accessing our servers by disconnecting from the internet, or by telling Mathematica not to connect to the
internet by using the Internet Connectivity item in the Help menu. If you choose not to allow Mathematica to access our servers, Mathematica will not
be able to perform certain functions.
Wolfram Research understands your concerns about how personally identifying information is used, and we endeavor to use such information carefully and sensibly.
We collect information on accesses to our servers by Mathematica in order to enhance and refine our service and content, and to prevent abuse and non-licensed use.
Under normal circumstances, we will never release information on accesses to our servers by Mathematica. We may, however, do so when we believe release is
appropriate in order to: comply with law; enforce our License and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Wolfram Research, our users,
data providers, or others. When you visit our website, we, like most websites, send one or more cookies—small anonymous identifiers—to your computer that uniquely
