Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We strive to treat your personal information as safely and securely as reasonably possible. Please read the following privacy policy to better understand how your personal information may be collected and used as you access various areas of our site. As described below, your information may be collected by Synopsys, Inc. (“Synopsys”), disclosed to third parties and used by third parties and Synopsys. This privacy policy describes the information we collect about you and what may happen to that information. Some of the reasons that we collect your personal information include:

  • Hosting quizzes, contests or prize drawings
  • Providing users a more personalized and meaningful experience on the site
  • Analyzing site utilization trends so that we can improve the user experience

We occasionally employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include sending email, analyzing data and providing marketing assistance. These third-party service providers have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. We do not sell, rent, share or otherwise disclose personally identifiable information from users for commercial purposes.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information

From time to time, we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and therefore you can choose whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and email address).

We use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, and sometimes to send participants a confirmation email.

In some cases, we may use a third-party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests. Any such provider is prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

Collection of Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Log Files

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system and date/time stamp.

We use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the site, enhance your experience in using our site and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. This information is used to better understand and improve the usability, performance and effectiveness of the site.


Some web pages use “cookies,” which are small files saved on your computer. Cookies help us recognize your user preferences and can improve your future web visits. You can set your web browser to notify you when you are receiving a cookie and choose to reject it. However, rejecting cookies may affect the performance of the site and prevent you from accessing certain Synopsys information.
