Web Site Navigational Information

Salesforce.com uses commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information from your computer or mobile device as you navigate the Company’s Web sites, interact with e-mails sent by the Company on its own behalf, or use the Services ("Web Site Navigational Information"). This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information used on the Company’s Web sites and in connection with the Services, and how this information may be used.

Web Beacons 

Salesforce.com, or third parties with whom we contract, may use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and Web Site Visitors’ usage of the Company’s Web sites and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Web site tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, salesforce.com may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company’s Web sites. Salesforce.com uses Web beacons to operate and improve the Company’s Web sites and email communications and track the clicking of links or opening of emails.

IP Addresses and URLs

Due to Internet communications standards, when you visit or use the Company’s Web sites, we automatically receive the URL of the Web site from which you came and the Web site to which you go when you leave the Company’s Web site. We also receive your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system, the type of Web browser you are using, and your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This information is used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Service and to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, salesforce.com uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Customers and Web Site Visitors navigate the Company’s Web sites.

Social Media Features

The Company’s Web sites may use social media features, such as the Facebook ‘like’ button ("Social Media Features"). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on the Company’s Web site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media Features to post information about your activities on the Company’s Web site to a profile page of yours that is provided by a third party Social Media network in order to share with others within your network. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on the Company’s Web site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing the relevant Social Media Features.

Do Not Track

Currently, various browsers — including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari — offer a "do not track" or "DNT" option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Web sites’ visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting. Salesforce.com does not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Company’s Web sites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. Salesforce.com takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.

Service Enabled Tracking

The Services may be used by our Customers to collect certain information about individuals and their online activities, such as interactions with a Customer’s Web site or in relation to a Customer’s online advertisements, content and communications using cookies and other tracking technologies. Customers are responsible for complying with any legal requirements in using any tracking technologies made available through the Services, including complying with any notice and consent requirements, and disclosing the use of such technologies in their respective privacy statements.

Public Forums, Refer a Friend, and Customer Testimonials

Salesforce.com may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Web sites. Any Personal Information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. Salesforce.com is not responsible for the Personal Information you choose to submit in these forums. Customers and Web Site Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform friends about the Company’s Web sites and the Services. When using the referral program, the Company requests the friend’s name and email address. Salesforce.com will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Web sites, or will share with them via email the information you have requested to be shared. Salesforce.com does not store this information. Salesforce.com posts a list of Customers and testimonials on the Company’s Web sites that contain information such as Customer names and titles of Customer personnel. Salesforce.com obtains the consent of each Customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.
