What are Cookies and Similar Technologies?
Cookies are small files—usually consisting of letters and numbers—placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a web site. Cookies are widely used by web site owners to make their web sites operate, work more efficiently, and provide analytic information.
These are the different types of Cookies we and our service providers may use on our Sites:
How does Intel Collect and Use Other Information?
How Long do Cookies Stay on My Device?
Other Cookies operate from the time you visit an Intel service to the end of that particular web browsing session. These Cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser. These Cookies are called “session” Cookies.
Some Cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions—they do not expire when you close your browser. These Cookies are called “persistent” Cookies. The length of time a persistent Cookie stays on your device varies from Cookie to Cookie. We and others use persistent Cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, and to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit our Sites, how often you return, how your use of the Sites may vary over time, and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.
Who Puts the Cookies on My Device?
Cookies may be placed on your device by Intel as the Site operator. These Cookies are called “first party” Cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Intel. These Cookies are called “third party” Cookies. For example, an Intel partner may place a third party Cookie to enable online chat services.
Cookies may also be used that allow us and third parties to know when you visit our Sites, and to understand how you interact with e-mails, advertisements, or other content. Through Cookies, aggregate and other information not identifying individual users (such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from, including from e-mails and advertisements) may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular service from specific banner advertisements outside the Intel Site or who clicked on links or graphics included in e-mail newsletters received from Intel. It is also used as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how Intel Sites are used, to perform analytics and help us to optimize our Sites, and to help serve you advertising based on your interests, as described in further detail below.
How does Intel Use Online and Mobile Advertising?
We and third parties, including technology partners, and service providers engage in interest-based advertising to deliver advertisements and personalized content that we and other advertisers believe will be of interest to you. To the extent third party vendors are using Cookies to perform these services for Intel or others, Intel does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.
Ads may be delivered to you based on your online or mobile behavior (on Intel Sites and non-Intel sites), your search activity, your responses to one of our advertisements or e-mails, the pages you visit, your general geographic location, or other information. These ads may appear on our Sites or on third party web sites. The technology partners with whom we work to help us conduct interest-based advertising may be members of self-regulatory associations such as the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). For Sites directed at persons located in the European Union, we may work with technology partners who are members of the European Digital Advertising Alliance (eDAA). You may also see advertisements for third parties on Intel Sites or other web sites or properties, based on your visits to, and activities on, Intel Sites and other sites.
You can decide whether or not to accept Cookies. One way you can do this is through your Internet browser’s settings. Most Internet browsers allow some control of most Cookies through the browser settings (Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all Cookies you may not be able to access parts of our web site.). The following web sites provide information on how to adjust the Cookies settings on some popular browsers:
You can also use a browser plug-in such as Ghostery* from Ghostery, Inc. or the Tracking Protection List* from TRUSTe. (A browser plug-in is a piece of software which adds extra capabilities to your browser—for example, to play video or scan for viruses.)Adobe Flash Player* is software for viewing multimedia on a computer. Web sites that use Adobe Flash* may store flash cookies on user’s devices to remember settings, preferences, and usage similar to other types of Cookies. These flash Cookies may also be known as Flash Local Shared Objects (LSOs). Intel may use Flash LSOs to provide special content, such as video and animation playback. You can find a good summary of how to manage Flash LSOs at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html.
How does Intel respond to a Do Not Track signal?
There is currently no industry agreed upon response to a Do Not Track signal. At this time, Intel Services and websites do not function differently based on a user’s Do Not Track signal. For more information on Do Not Track, see All About Do Not Track.

Effective November 4th, 2016, the following Mobile App Privacy Notice will apply to McAfee mobile apps.
Intel Corporation, Intel Security and their group companies ("we", "us" and "our") respect your privacy. This privacy notice ("App Privacy Notice") describes our privacy practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information through our app.
Other than as specifically set forth in this App Privacy Notice, we will treat your personal information as described in our Privacy Philosophy and our Privacy Notice, both available at http://www.intel.com/privacy.
1. What We Collect.
Information you provide:
We may require that you register to use the app. Registration may require personal information like your email address and name and information like a unique user name or password. In some cases, you may be able to sign in using your Google or Facebook account credentials which will then be used only for the purpose of account access and account management.
The functionality of the app requires some access to personal information that may be required in order to use the app. This may include contact information such as your name, address, phone number and email address, unique log in credentials and access to various features of your device including unique numeric identifiers such as your mobile advertising ID/IDFA, Bluetooth device IDs and mobile device ID.
Other types of information may also be collected by the app such as:
Access to some of the above information (such as your location) may be restricted by your mobile device's operating system, and your consent will be requested before we may access this information. It is your choice whether you wish to provide consent; however, if you do not provide consent, some functionality of the app may be restricted.
You may also have the opportunity to voluntarily provide additional information from time to time that is not required by the app but may improve your experience.
Information we collect automatically from your device and app
In addition to the above information that you provide to us, other device-related information and app performance data is automatically collected by the app. This includes crash logs to assess application usability and performance, length of time spent on the app and other aggregate or statistical information. Location data may be automatically collected, such as by GPS, for the purpose of providing certain features of the app. This data is transmitted and stored separately from any personal information processed by the app, contains no information that can reasonably be used to directly identify you, and is only used by us to improve the app and related functionality.
2. How We Use Your Information.
In addition to providing and improving the app and related services, we use your personal information to communicate with you, including to send you notifications and alerts and for in-app advertising and marketing (in accordance with your marketing preferences), to respond to your requests (such as for technical support or customer service) and for research and analytics. In addition to the uses described in this Mobile App Privacy Notice, we may use your personal information as otherwise permitted by applicable law and consistent with our Privacy Philosophy and Privacy Notice available at http://www.mcafee.com/common/privacy/english/index.htm. If we wish to use your personal information in any way that differs from this paragraph or our Privacy Philosophy and Privacy Notice, we will only do so after obtaining your consent.
3. How We Share Your Information.
Third party service providers and affiliated companies
We do not sell, rent or share your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes. We may need to share it with third party service providers in order to support the app, its features and its services, including customer services and technical support, and with our affiliated companies as described in this Mobile App Privacy Notice.
Some of our providers may use your information in a format that does not directly identify you for their own business purposes (such as to improve their own services). For example, tracking the number of customer support calls required before an issue is resolved in order to improve resolution time. Our contracts do not permit our third party service providers to use your personal information in ways that are inconsistent with this Mobile App Privacy Notice.
Third party service provider terms
Some of our third party service providers may have additional terms and choices that apply to your information which we are required to make available to you as follows:
The Facebook Audience Network: We are a member of the Facebook Audience Network. This provides a way for companies to display their ads to Facebook users in apps and websites that are also part of the network. Facebook helps tailor the ads so that they are relevant and useful. You can use Facebook’s ad preferences tool to view, add and remove your preferences, including whether you receive these tailored ads, including in our app. We encourage you to review Facebook’s data policy and privacy basics at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Ads in our app also include an Ad Choices opt-out icon so you can opt out directly from our app.
Other ways your personal information may be shared
Your personal information may also be used and shared in accordance with the Intel Security Privacy Notice available here, which includes sharing with law enforcement, government representatives or others if required by law, in connection with a sale purchase, merger or reorganization, or when we believe it is necessary to protect our rights, property, or safety, to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process – such as evidence in litigation in which we are involved. In the case of a sale or purchase we will instruct the entities to which we transfer your personal information only to use it in a manner consistent with this Mobile App Privacy Notice.
4. Your Choices.
You may request access to view, modify, update or remove the personal information that we have related to your use of the app by sending a request to us at http://www.mcafee.com/us/about/contact-us.aspx or by contacting us using the details supplied in the "Contact Us" section below. You may have options to limit advertising and ad tracking through your device settings. You can unsubscribe from our marketing-related messages at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions included within each marketing-related message sent to you or by using the details in the "Contact Us" section. We will comply with requests within the time frames required by applicable law.
Please note that if you choose not to receive marketing-related emails from us, we may still send you important administrative and transactional messages related to the app and services (“service notifications”).
We take reasonable technical, administrative and physical measures to protect the personal information provided, but you must understand that no app or Internet transmission can ever be guaranteed 100% secure. Where personal data collected is stored on your device, security is through your device’s own secure storage facilities. You should also take care to protect the secrecy of your account user name and password and to protect the personal information that is stored on your device.
6. International Transfers.
We are a U.S.-based, global company. As such, we may transfer, store and process your personal information in the United States (U.S.) or to any of our group companies worldwide when processing that information for the purposes described in this Mobile App Privacy Notice. We may also transfer your personal information to our third party service providers, who may be located in a different country to you.
Personal information shared by us from the European Economic Area and Switzerland is also subject to a set of binding corporate rules known as the Intel Corporate Privacy Rules (“Intel’s BCR”) which establish adequate protection of such personal information at participating Intel group companies. Intel's BCR can be accessed here. All transfers shall be carried out in accordance with applicable laws, and your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Mobile App Privacy Notice.
7. Data Retention.
We retain account information, such as your name, account credentials and email for the lifetime of your account. However, if you are not an active user of the app (as determined by number of log in attempts) after two years, your account and all data will be deleted. If you then wish to use the app again in the future, you will have to establish a new account. Data may be stored locally on your device as well as remotely on our (or our service provider's) systems. If you delete the app on your device, any data stored locally on the device will be deleted.
Our apps are not a web site or online service directed to or intended for use by children under the age of 13 years old and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you believe that we have received information from a child under 13 please contact us at http://www.mcafee.com/us/about/contact-us.aspx.
9. Notice to California Residents.
Section 1798.83 of the California Civil Code requires us to tell you that we do not share your personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
10. Updates to this Mobile App Privacy Notice
From time to time we may update this Mobile App Privacy Notice and/or the Intel Privacy Notice for legal, regulatory or business reasons. We will post any such updates to this App Privacy Notice along with the effective date of these updates within the app or on http://www.mcafee.com/common/privacy/english/index.htm as applicable.
If we make any material changes to the way we collect and use your personal information, then we will also take other reasonable measures to inform you (which may include contacting you by e-mail, if we hold your e-mail address). Where required by law, we will seek your affirmative consent to such material changes.
Except where prohibited by law, your continued use of the app following such changes will confirm that you have read and understand the updated Mobile App Privacy Notice.
