- When you search for or request details on services or products from the Website, for example, registering a ViewSonic product online or entering a competition.
- Via your individual IP location. This is a necessary function of the Website that enables ViewSonic to return details of information you have searched for, and in order for ViewSonic to diagnose problems with its server and to administer the website.
- ViewSonic uses a third party tool Google Analytics, to analyse traffic on the Website. Google Analytics does not create individual profiles for visitors.
