When you request information from Mentor and supply information that personally identifies you or allows us to contact you, you are agreeing to share that information with Mentor, its agents, representatives and affiliates. We may receive and store any information you enter on our Site or give us in any other way. Further, we may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us.

Third Party Plug-Ins
We use commercially reasonable and generally-accepted technological safeguards to secure any information that we collect about you. The secure server software (SSL) that we use encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. We work very hard to protect your privacy, but we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee complete security. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to the Site or to us, and you transmit such information at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to your personally-identifiable information.
We may release information (including, but not limited to, your name, address(es), email address, telephone number, and account activity) when we, in our sole discretion, believe that such release is necessary or appropriate to:
- comply with law;
- comply with subpoenas, warrants, court orders, government investigations, or other legal process;
- enforce or apply the terms of any of our user or license agreements;
- investigate or respond to allegations of fraud, intellectual property infringement or other unlawful activity
- investigate fraud or similar claims;
- protect the rights, property or safety of Mentor, our users, or others;
- permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain.

These third parties may collect anonymous information about your visits to our Site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other websites to target advertisements for goods and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a web beacon, which is industry standard technology used by most major sites.
