Education and FERPA
We’re focused on building tools and communities for people who imagine, design and create great things. You might be a professional, a student, or a design enthusiast working on something in your personal time. You might be engaging with us through a mobile device, desktop computer, or your web browser. No matter who you are or what you do, we appreciate that we’ve earned your time and attention. We also appreciate that different people have different privacy concerns.
This privacy statement tells you about our online and offline privacy practices.
Our primary goal is to help you understand what we do (and don’t do) when it comes to your personal information, so we’ve done our best to be clear. We’ve provided different ways for you to look up topics of interest to you. As a result, we may repeat important points.
In this statement we refer to our products, online services and web services, and apps (online, mobile and desktop) as “applications.” Sometimes we may refer to something specific like a “website,” “mobile application” or “online service” for clarity.
Websites and applications that link to this privacy statement are covered
This privacy statement tells you about our privacy practices for our websites and applications that include a link or reference to this statement. It also tells you about our marketing and advertising practices, and applies to our offline practices.
Sometimes there’s more information in context, when you need it
Some of our websites and applications may display supplemental privacy or data collection notices that we share so you can make informed choices about what you want to do at the time you review the notices. For example, you may see a notice explaining a data collection program in an application, and your choices for participating.
Websites and applications that do not link to this privacy statement are covered by other privacy policies or statements
Sometimes, websites and applications owned by Autodesk may have their own privacy statements or policies. For example, we may buy another company to expand our business, and need some time to fully integrate the company’s privacy practices with the ones we explain here.
Third parties are responsible for their own privacy practices. These include social media platforms or other company websites that we link to from our websites and applications. Be sure to read the privacy policies, supplemental notices, and settings of all websites or platforms that you visit so you can understand their privacy practices and your options.
If you have privacy questions, concerns or complaints you can contact us by the methods below.

We collect information that identifies you when you (or someone acting on your behalf, like an administrator, school or parent):
Some information is required, other information is optional.
For our customers who make purchases through our channel partners or ecommerce providers, we will receive personal information about you from these companies so that we can have an accurate record of applications to which you have access.
To help keep our databases current and to provide you with more relevant content, experiences and offerings, we may combine information you give us with information from public sources and trustworthy companies (such as our resellers and ecommerce providers, and business contact databases), all in accordance with applicable law.
For example, these sources can tell us about the company size and industry of our business customers, and also help us maintain the accuracy of our databases.
When you make purchases through our websites, we use a payment processor and do not receive credit card or other financial information (other than confirmation that payment in a certain amount has been made). We may collect contact information from you that we pass through to the payment processor to facilitate the transaction. Our e-store is run by an ecommerce provider.
You can contact our ecommerce provider and payment vendors as set forth in their respective privacy policies:
When you contact us to request services, support or other information, we may keep a record of the communication to help resolve the matter you contacted us about and consistent with our rules around data retention.
We collect system information during the desktop product activation process.
Many of our desktop applications include features that require online connectivity to make certain features work. We will collect system information during these processes. Also, if you need to login to access our desktop software or certain features, this information may be associated with you.
You can get more information by reading the terms of service or software license agreement that applies to the websites or applications you are using.
Certain of our desktop applications include features that allow you to enable automatic updates. Where these features are enabled:

Some of our websites or applications are available on a consumption basis. This means that you (or the company, organization or institution through which you receive access):
For these types of websites and applications, we track your usage against how much access you (or the company, organization or institution through which you receive access) have been provided or paid for, as applicable.
Learn more about sharing with your company, organization or educational institution.
Some of our applications include specific data collection programs. Depending on the application or program, we may associate this data with your personal information.
Generally you will see a notice about this data collection in context, and you can follow the instructions to get more information and learn about your choices.
Here is a list of our most common programs:
For CIP and DAP, you can change your choice by going to the Help, Preferences, or other menu as prompted, opening the program dialogue box, and following the instructions. For CIP and DAP, your choice will apply to all Autodesk desktop products installed on your computer.
For CER and other error reporting programs, a dialog box will appear in-application after the error has occurred, and you will be told what information the tool will collect, how it will be sent to us, and any other relevant information about the tool or its use. You must choose to send us the report.
For trial, preview or beta applications your limited or full participation in an in-application analytics program may be a condition of receiving access to those products. Please review the applicable terms of service, license agreement and any specific privacy or data collection notice attached to a given application for more details. If you do not wish to participate please do not use these products.
We may use the Desktop Analytics Program in our mobile applications. We may also use third party analytics services to support analytics for some of our mobile applications. For details about a specific mobile application, please read the About section (iOS and Microsoft mobile devices) or the Legal/Privacy section (Android devices). You can opt-out of data collection for an application by following the in-application instructions. Unless the data collection notice in About or Legal/Privacy tells you otherwise, the control selection will be located in the application or device settings (iOS devices), the settings menu (Android devices) or the About section (Microsoft devices).
For convenience, here is a non-exclusive set of links to the privacy policies and opt-out instructions to services we may use:
Our cloud services require you to login. In addition to providing you with entry to our systems, we monitor the general access and use of our applications and cloud services; for example, in order to:
Depending on the specific service or features of that service, we may track usage for billing or other reporting purposes (learn more).
When you communicate with us, access our websites and servers through a browser, application, or other client, our servers automatically collect and record information.
For example, your browser or device may tell us:
Your browser may also tell us information such as:
Our websites and applications may feature ads for other companies’ products and services, as well as ads for our own applications. We collect information about ad views for reporting purposes using tools like pixels tags (for example, to see how many total unique views of an ad there are).
Please note that if you choose to click on an ad or participate in promotions of any third-party advertisers via an ad that appears in our website or application, this is solely between you and the advertiser and your participation is subject to the terms and conditions associated with that ad or promotion.
Examples of this information may include, but are not limited to:
This information helps:
Some technology enables advertising to be temporarily uploaded onto your mobile device and then be replaced while you are online.
Our Ad Partners deliver ads for us and may combine the information collected or obtained from us with other information they have independently collected from other websites and/or other online or mobile products and services relating to your browser's activities across their network of websites.
You may opt out of the use of your information by Ad Partners by using the Network Advertising Initiative tool. If you delete all cookies, use a different browser, or use a different computer, you will need to use the tool to renew your opt out choice.
Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are even aware of them.
Participants in the leading Internet standards-setting organization that is addressing this issue are in the process of determining what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals. Autodesk currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.
We have pages on many social networking platforms where you can visit and communicate with us. We may collect information when you visit our social networking pages, for example if you follow or "like" us.
Be sure to review the privacy and data usage policies of any social networking platform you use to learn more about its personal information practices and your options.
Our websites and applications may include buttons, tools, or content that links to another company’s services (for example, a Facebook "Like" button on a webpage or a Google Maps feature in an application). We may collect information about your use of these features through our
application usage metrics and analytics programs.
Some of our websites and applications allow you to post “likes,” comments, profile information (including profile images), videos, photographs, images, design files, and other content that may include or be associated with personal information for others to see.
Please keep the following in mind:
Be thoughtful about what you post
We urge you to be careful and thoughtful when deciding to disclose personal information on our applications and websites. If you are posting information you do not want to be disclosed publicly, make sure you are using a website or application that allows you to control who sees information you have posted.
Information you post may be disclosed to others
In some cases you can limit who can view or access information and content you post. In other cases, the information and content might be available to registered members of the application or website, or even to the general public. For example, information posted on Area, Instructables, or Socialcam will be public by default and posted under your user name.
Your personal information may be disclosed to others
Your name, user name, profile image, or email address (particularly if this is your user name) may be posted along with any message or other content you post through some of our applications and websites.
If you choose to share personal information in a public post or in a direct communication to another user through our application platform, the access limitations, security protocols and other commitments in this privacy statement will not apply to the information shared.
If you close your account after you make public posts on a forum, the posts may remain up after your account closure. In addition, copies may remain viewable in cached or archived pages of our websites, or if other end users have copied or saved the information.
Please see our section on sharing information with companies, organizations or institutions with which you are affiliated.
We want to be sure the personal information we maintain is accurate, complete and up to date. You may have the right under applicable data protection laws to access the personal information that we keep for you, on request to us, except in certain limited circumstances (for example, where an applicable law requires us to deny such access).
You can update, correct or delete your profile information by following the instructions below. Also, note that we need to retain certain records for legal or internal business reasons, and some of your information may remain on backup systems, in compliance with applicable law.
To remove content you have shared on our websites and applications, please use the same website or application feature you used to share the content and follow the instructions. An option to remove content may not always be available directly through the website or application, for example on forums.
Where someone has invited you to comment on, or view or edit content through our websites or applications, you may be able to edit or delete your contributions directly through the website or application, or the user who has invited your participation may have control over these options.
If you wish to remove content that you have shared, but find that you are unable to do so directly through the website or application, please contact us.
Please also see our section on storage, retention and deletion of personal information.
For some websites or applications, we may allow access to certain content that you have shared, including personal information, through an application programming interface (API).
Customer controlled services
Autodesk customers may invite you to participate in a customer-specific site of an application, such as the Autodesk PLM360, Buzzsaw, or Constructware services. The customer site administrator manages these invitations, and requests to change or update information you provided when registering should be directed to that site administrator. AUTODESK ACTS ONLY AS A SERVICE PROVIDER TO OUR CUSTOMERS IN CONNECTION TO THESE APPLICATIONS, AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR THE USE AND/OR DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU BY SUCH CUSTOMERS.
Where we store personal information
We store personal information and data files associated with you on Autodesk servers and servers of companies we hire to provide services to us.
This information may be stored in the United States and in other countries where Autodesk operates, and in countries where our service providers operate.
Please see the sharing with third parties section for more information about our practices and requirements we place on service providers.
If you are in the European Union, Switzerland, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use
If you are in the European Union, Switzerland, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, you agree to the transfer to, processing and storage of your personal information in the United States and other countries, the privacy laws of which may be considered less strict than those of your region. This consent applies in addition to other legal grounds for transfer, processing and storage of your personal information, such as for contract fulfillment purposes.
See the self-regulatory frameworks section for information about our EU/US and Swiss/US Safe Harbor certification.
We will keep personal information about you only as long as we need it:
We try to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, please note that when you delete information, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may also retain information in our backup systems.
Destruction of information
We take reasonable measures to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information in a secure manner when it is no longer required. (For example, when the information is printed on paper, we take reasonable measures to delete or destroy it by shredding or incineration; where the information is stored electronically; we use technical means to render the information unusable.)
You may also want to review the security and integrity of personal information section.
We strive to use personal information about you in useful ways, including:
We may personalize or refine communications content for you based on the products or services you use, subject to your communications choices. For example, we may send you “tips and tricks” communications designed to help you use our products or services more efficiently.
Your communications choices
We may share your personal information within Autodesk or any of our subsidiary companies worldwide for purposes of:
Autodesk, Inc. is the party responsible for the management of the jointly-used personal information, and we and our subsidiaries agree to follow data privacy principles and procedures that help protect your personal information.
We may share information about you with third parties under certain circumstances.
We do not share personal information about consumers with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes unless the consumer agreed to that sharing.
We may share information about you with companies, contractors and agents that help us to run our business. (If you are in Europe, you may know these types of companies as "data processors.") These companies, contractors and agents provide services to us like
We require these companies, contractors and agents to agree to use reasonable safeguards to protect information about you. They will have access to some of your information, limited to what they need to provide services to us. They are not allowed to use personal information they receive from us for their own purposes.
If you are a professional business customer, we may share your personal information with our channel partners and sales partners for operational purposes, such as order fulfillment and to confirm information about what applications you have access to.
Note that you may receive marketing communications from our channel partners based on your relationship with them.
We share personal information when:
If we merge with another company or if we decide to sell or reorganize some part or all of our business, assets or stock (including if we file for bankruptcy or are part of a similar proceeding), we may share personal information. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the part of our business, assets or stock affected may continue to use information about you as set forth in this privacy statement.
We may share or publish aggregated information and other information that does not specifically identify you, such as statistics about the number of visitors to our websites or about how customers and end users use our applications.
We may allow access by third parties to certain content, including personal information, posted through websites or applications through an application programming interface (API).
API access will be mentioned in the applicable terms of service. We place limitations on what third party developers can do with information. You can find links to the applicable App Developer Agreement through the applicable terms of service. For convenient reference, here is a non-exclusive list of the current agreements:
Below is information about your choices.
On some websites and applications, content you post is public and cannot be marked as non-public or private. Check the posting controls for the specific application or website you are using.
Where there is an option to mark content as private or otherwise choose a non-public status, and you choose the non-public option, third party developers will not be able to access the following information through a public information access API:
You may choose to use third party applications that manage your interactions with our websites or applications. For example, third party applications may want to do the following types of activities:
We require the app developers to explain what actions they will take and also what information (including personal information) they need to access in order to take these actions, and to get your approval. In addition, we require developers to provide a link to an explanation of their privacy practices.
It is your choice to approve or not approve access by these third party applications.
In both cases described above, third party application developers are not allowed to use your personal information for marketing or promotional purposes without your consent, and are otherwise restricted in their use of your information by the terms of the applicable App Developer Agreement.
The company, organization or institution through which you have access to our websites and applications may have set up an agreement with us to receive usage information (for example, usage reporting for billing purposes), subject to privacy and employment laws.
This usage information may be reported on in aggregated form, or it may be reported on in various ways, including to the level of individual usage depending on our agreement with you or the company, organization or institution through which you receive access, as applicable.
You can get more information by reading the terms of service or software license agreement that applies to the websites or applications you are using, or by talking to your license or contract administrator.
Our applications may include collaboration tools that allow others within and outside of your company, organization or institution to view, share and comment on a project on which you have been working (including models, designs or other information). If you have posted information or comments, for example, these will be associated with your user name.
We collect information that may identify you to your system administrator in connection with the automatic update process, to help your administrator determine what updates you need.
Your system administrator can enable his/her ability to view identifying information. The information collected and which might be shown includes:
We use a combination of process, technology and physical security controls to help protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When sensitive personal information is transferred over the Internet, we encrypt it using Transfer Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology or similar technology. Further, access to personal information is restricted to those employees, contractors, and agents of Autodesk who need to know such data to perform their assigned functions and develop or improve our products and services. However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective, and we cannot completely ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.
We may update this privacy statement from time to time. Check the "last updated" section at the top of this privacy statement to see the last time the privacy statement was changed.
If we decide to make changes to our privacy statement on a forward going basis, we will tell you and other users by placing a notice on www.autodesk.com and/or by sending you a notice to the e-mail address (if any) we have on file for you. We may also give you notice through our applications and on our other websites. You should periodically check www.autodesk.com, our other websites and this privacy statement for updates. Your continued use of our applications and websites constitutes your agreement to this privacy statement.
For changes to this privacy statement that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of personal information you have provided to us, we will obtain your consent before implementing the change. Please contact us if you have questions.
Some of our websites, products and services ("applications") or application features are "general interest" applications designed for older users. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children in connection with those websites, applications, or features.
in accordance with the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA").
COPPA applies to information provided online by children under the age of 13 ("child" or "children"). For more information about COPPA and general tips about protecting children's online privacy, please visit OnGuard Online.
Here are some quick links to help you find information:
Here are ways in which we collect personal information from children, as well as how and when we will provide parental notice and/or seek parental consent. In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with COPPA's requirements, we will promptly either delete the information or seek the parent's consent for that collection.
Consistent with what COPPA requires, where we have an age screen in place and we determine the user is age 12 or under, we will:
Where an application is age appropriate, children can register with our website or application to (among other things):
During the registration process, we may ask the child to provide certain personal information for security purposes and so we can send notices to parents, including:
We also may ask for birth dates from children to validate their ages.
A child's username will be either:
If a child chooses not to share their personal information (i.e., a parent or guardian's email for purposes of consent) with us, this limits their access to account creation and certain features.
We will not require a child to provide more information than is reasonably necessary in order to participate in an online activity.
Also, we will keep the information consistent with our retention practices – that is:
Depending on the website or application, we may seek different types of parental consent. In each case, when we ask for consent we will provide notice about the specific activities available to a child through the website or application.
Because our websites and applications include activities that allow children to create, share and publically post content, to become a full member we seek "high-level" consent from a parent as follows:
We also require a parent to open their own account so that they can view and moderate their child's account. For further details, please see Parental Choices and Controls below.
After providing high-level consent, we may offer parents the opportunity to use a pin or password in future communications as a way to confirm the parent's identity.
Teacher consent in lieu of a parent
For school-based activities, COPPA allows teachers and school administrators to act in the place of parents to provide consent for the collection of personal information from children. Schools should always notify parents about these activities.
In some cases, in order that an account is not closed and so that a child can continue to use a website or application outside of the school context, we may ask schools to obtain consent directly from a parent instead of and/or in addition to providing consent in the place of a parent.
For more information on parental rights with respect to a child's educational record under the U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), please see the FERPA section below.
Content Generated by a Child
Our websites and applications include activities that allow children to create or manipulate content and save it. Some of these activities do not require children to provide any personal information and therefore may not result in notice to the parent or require parental consent.
If an activity potentially allows a child to insert personal information in their created content, we will seek a "high level" parental consent.
Examples of child created content that may include personal information are
When, in addition to collecting content that includes personal information, we allow children to share content publicly, we will obtain "high-level" parental consent.
We honor the requests of minors to delete any content that they post on our websites and applications, unless we are required by law to retain it. Please see the removing content you have posted section for more information.
Forums and comments
Certain activities allow users to communicate directly with other users by means user forums or comments sections. We first seek "high level" parental consent before allowing a child access to such features.
We strongly encourage children who use these interactive features on our websites and in our applications never to provide personal information about themselves or any third party, and not to attempt to circumvent any moderation features.
We also recommend that parents carefully supervise their children when the children participate in online activities.
In all of our contests, we will require only the information necessary to enter the contest, such as user name and parent email address (to notify the parent where required by law). We only contact the parent for more personalized information for prize-fulfillment purposes if the child wins the contest.
Email Contact with a Child
In some of our applications, we may collect online contact information, such as an email address, in order to communicate with a child who makes a specific request through customer service. For example, a child may email us to ask for help in understanding how to use a design tool if she or he is having trouble with. Or the child may want to sign up for a monthly newsletter. Here is how we would handle communication requests.
After we respond to the child's question or request, we or our service provider will delete this information immediately after responding to the question or request.
Where there is an activity or service where we need to communicate with a child more than once and we have not already obtained parental consent:
When children interact with us, certain information may be collected automatically, both to make our sites and applications more interesting and useful to children and for various purposes related to our business.
This data is used for internal purposes, in order to:
In the event we collect (or allow others to collect) such information from children on our sites and applications for other purposes, we will notify parents and obtain consent prior to such collection.
The list of third-party operators who collect persistent identifiers on our websites and applications may be found at www.autodesk.com/privacy-appendix.
In addition to those cases where a child's personal information is posted publicly (after receiving high-level parental consent), we also may share or disclose personal information collected from children in a limited number of instances, including the following:
Please see the Sharing with Third Parties section of our Privacy Statement.
At any time, parents can:
Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of an account, membership, or other service and that any content saved in that account may no longer be accessible.
Where a child under 13 has registered for an account, we use two methods to allow parents to access, change, or delete the personally information that we have collected from their children:

In any correspondence such as e-mail or mail, please include:
To protect children's privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify a parent's identity before granting access to any personal information.
If you are using our applications through a school program, your personal information may be subject to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). We have included information here that is most relevant to our products and services when they are used by schools that are subject to FERPA. You can look at the U.S. Department of Education website for more information.
FERPA is a United States law that provides certain rights with respect to student education records and personal information associated with those records. Parents exercise these rights on behalf of their children under 18. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school (12th grade) level, known as "eligible students".
FERPA gives parents and eligible students certain rights (subject to limitations), including:
As a general rule, schools subject to FERPA must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, under certain circumstances schools are allowed to disclose records without consent, including under the following conditions:
Schools are required to notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. Each school can choose how to provide notification (for example, sending a special letter or including the information in a student handbook).
We help schools comply with their obligations under FERPA in various ways, depending on the application being used. This can include obtaining consent directly from a parent or eligible student and providing them with direct access to relevant information within our applications, or providing schools with the ability to manage parent or eligible student requests.
