2. Personal Information
Personal information is information that identifies an individual personally, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, e-mail address, personal characteristics, and financial information. You can visit many Imation Web sites without disclosing any personal information; however, in some instances, you will be required to provide personal information in order to complete a transaction or take advantage of the online resources made available by Imation. Imation will only collect the personal information reasonably necessary to accomplish the purpose for which it is collected, and will retain it only as long as is reasonably necessary. Personal information collected online by Imation may be combined with information you provide through other sources such as product registration, customer service call centers, or other methods.

4. Children and Privacy
Imation is committed to protecting the online privacy of children. Imation does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from or about children under the age of 13, and Imation does not target its web sites to children under 13. Additionally, Imation does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from or about children above the age of 13, without their parent's or guardian's consent. If Imation ever includes children above 13 as part of our intended Web site audience, those specific Web site pages will be clearly identified and provide an express privacy notice for children above 13, as well as processes to obtain parental approval and allow parental access to request removal of their children's personal information. Imation encourages parents and guardians to spend time with their children online and participate in their interactive activities and interests.
5. How We Use Your Information
Imation collects personal information to enable us to provide products, services and information to our customers, potential customers, and business partners. We intend to let you know how we will use the information you provide before we collect it from you; and we intend to limit our use of that information to those purposes for which you give us permission. For example, Imation may collect financial information to facilitate the purchase of products or services online, and postal or e-mail addresses to provide information in response to your request or to allow you to participate in promotions. We do not sell, trade or lease your information to others. Imation will not share your information with third parties except in responding to your requests for products, services or other Imation information or with those persons or companies who help us manage our business. When we do so, we require them to use that information only for the purposes for which we provided it. We might use your information to develop aggregate statistics about our sales, customers, users, and site visitors, but these statistics will not include any personally identifiable information.
6. Protecting Your Information
Imation uses procedural, manual and electronic security controls to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of personal information in our possession, and guard against its unauthorized access or use. We are responsible for providing an adequate level of protection for that information, and for limiting or granting access as required by applicable law. Imation employees may have access to your personal information as part of their job. Such employees are expected to keep that information in confidence and share it only with those Imation employees who have a business reason to know. Unauthorized disclosures or uses are strictly prohibited, and employees who violate our policies may be subject to disciplinary action.
7. Communications from Us
If you provide us with your email address, we may occasionally send you, in accordance with relevant regulations, email with information or special offers about Imation products and services that may be of interest to you. This applies to promotional email only, as Imation may find it necessary to email you relating to your customer account or order. All promotional email that you receive from Imation will tell you how to decline receiving future promotional email. You may also use the methods described in Section 13 of this policy.
8. Access to and Accuracy of Your Information
Imation strives to keep your personal information accurate. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to maintain data accuracy. Where practical, we will provide you online access to your information and the ability to correct it. Otherwise, you can request access to your personal information by contacting Imation, as described below. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable precautions to verify your identity before granting access to your information. Certain areas of Imation's Web sites may limit access to users with a user id and password.
