Privacy Policy


Last Updated: March 2014

Verint Systems Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Verint") are concerned about privacy issues and wants you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information that we collect through the website owned and controlled by us from which you are accessing this Privacy Policy (the "Site") as well as certain information we collect from offline sources, as explained in more detail below. By providing Personal Information to us, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

If you apply for a job through the Site, our use of the Personal Information you provide through our Career Center is governed by a separate privacy policy, not this Privacy Policy. Please click here to review our privacy policy for job seekers who apply for jobs through the Site.

Verint complies with the U.S. – E.U. and US - Swiss Safe Harbor framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union and Switzerland. Information regarding the E.U. and Swiss Safe Harbor Frameworks can be found at: http://export.gov/safeharbor. A copy of Verint’s Safe Harbor policy can be found here.

Personal Information

Personal Information We Collect

"Personal Information" is information that identifies you as an individual, such as:

  • Name
  • Postal address (including billing and shipping addresses)
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Organization and job title or function
  • Login ID, PIN or other Password for access to certain content on the Site

We may merge Personal Information collected through the Site with Personal Information that we collect about you offline, such as business contact information that we receive in connection with sales presentations, your e-mails to us or your purchases from us, information gathered when you attend a trade show, seminar or other business event, or information provided by your employer if your company enrolls you in a training event. All such merged Personal Information will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We use third-party payment services ("Payment Service") to collect payments for purchases made through the Site. If you wish to make a payment through the Site, you will be directed to a webpage that is hosted by the Payment Service (or the Payment Service's service providers) and not by Verint. Any Personal Information that you provide through the Payment Service’s webpage will be collected by Payment Service and not by us, and will be subject to Payment Service's privacy policy, rather than this Privacy Policy. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION BY SUCH PAYMENT SERVICES.

How We Use Personal Information

We may use Personal Information:

  • To respond to your inquiries and fulfill your requests, such as to send you e-mail alerts, white papers or information about our company, products and services.
  • To send you important information regarding the Site, changes to our terms, conditions, and policies and/or other administrative information.
  • To complete and fulfill your purchase, for example, to have your order delivered to you, to provide you with the products and services you request, to communicate with you regarding your purchase and provide you with related customer service.

For Online Chat or RA, you may end a session at any time of your choosing. We use Support Data (as hereinafter defined) in the same way as we use your information, as described in this privacy statement. Additionally, we use it to resolve your support incident and for training purposes. Support Data is the information we collect when you submit a support request or run an automated troubleshooter, including information about hardware, software, and other details related to the support incident, such as: contact or authentication information, chat session personalization, information about the condition of the computer and the application when the fault occurred and during diagnostics, system and registry data about software installations and hardware configurations, and error-tracking files.

Other Information

Other Information We Collect

"Other Information" is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual, such as:

  • Browser information
  • Information collected through cookies, pixel tags and other technologies
  • Demographic information and other information provided by you
  • Aggregated information

How We Collect Other Information

We and our third party service providers may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

  • Through your browser: Certain information is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version and Internet browser type and version. We use this information to ensure that our Site functions properly.

Using cookies and web beacons: Please see our Cookie Policy which explains how we use cookies.

  • Usage data: We may use statistical data, analytics, trends and usage information derived from your use of services (“usage data”) through pixel tags and other similar technologies. Usage data includes, for example, aggregated quantitative information about active users, activity, topics, and groups. Some ways we use the usage data include operating, improving and personalizing the services and our offerings, as well as other Verint products and services.
  • IP Address: Your "IP Address" is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Site usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Site.
  • From you: Information such as your location, as well as other information, such as your preferred means of communication or areas of interest, is collected when you voluntarily provide this information. Unless combined with Personal Information, this information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site.
  • By aggregating information: Aggregated Personal Information does not personally identify you or any other user of the Site, (for example, we may aggregated Personal Information to calculate the percentage of our users who have a particular telephone area code).

How We Use and Disclose Other Information

Please note that we may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then, in addition to the uses listed in the "How We Collect Other Information" section above, we may use and disclose Other Information for all the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information.

In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information (such as combining your name with your geographical location). If we combine any Other Information with Personal Information, the combined information will be treated by us as Personal Information as long as it is combined.

Data Collected in Connection with Ad Serving and Targeting. Our goal at Verint is to provide you with ads that are relevant to you. We use the services of reputable third parties to provide us with data collection, reporting, ad response measurement, and site analytics, as well as to assist with delivery of relevant marketing messages and advertisements. These third parties may view, edit or set their own cookies. We, our third party service providers, advertisers, advertising networks and platforms, agencies and/or partners may also place web beacons for these third parties. The use of these technologies by these third parties is subject to their own privacy policies and is not covered by this privacy statement.

Often our ads are based on the content of pages you are viewing, but we also provide ads tailored to your interests. Our hope is that by presenting ads tailored to your interests, we will enhance your experience across Verint’s websites.

For example, if you often visit content on the Verint network about Enterprise Workforce Optimization, we or our service providers may use “web beacons” to infer your possible interest in WFO and may deliver an ad to you related to that interest when you are on the Site or on a third-party site. It's important to understand that these technologies use anonymous identifiers within the “cookies” stored in your browser. We offer you choices with regard to interest-based ads. To learn more about interest-based ads and the choices available to you, please visit our AdChoices page.

Verint’s Adherence to Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising. Verint adheres to the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising of the Digital Advertising Alliance. To learn more about the Principles and your choices when it comes to the use of online behavioral advertising data by advertisers and ad servers across the Internet, visit aboutads.info.

Third Party Sites

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site to which this Site contains a link. The inclusion of a link on the Site does not imply endorsement of the linked site by us or by our affiliates.

Security

We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information under our control. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the "Contacting Us" section below.

Your choices regarding our use and disclosure of your Personal Information

We give you many choices regarding our use and disclosure of your Personal Information for marketing purposes. You may opt-out from:

You should review the customer’s privacy policy or contact the customer directly to understand how they will use the data you submit to them.
