WHY WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION Guidewire Group collects and uses your personal information when you contact us so we can answer your questions and to determine how we may assist you through our products and services.
In addition, we may use your personal information to keep you updated on Guidewire Group products, programs, research, or other information we think you’d like to hear about. This may occasionally include information from third-party companies about related products, services and events. From time to time, we may also use your personal information to contact you to participate in a market research survey, so that we can gauge client satisfaction and develop better products.
TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED When you request information from Guidewire Group, Inc., or register for Guidewire Services, you will be asked to provide information about you and your company.

That information remains confidential until such time as you give Guidewire Group express permission to share elements of your information in Guidewire Services.

In some of our email to you, we may use a “click-through URL.” When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the web site that is your destination. We track click-throughs to help us determine interest in particular topics and to measure the effectiveness of our customer communications.
