Your data. Your choices.
Last updated: June 20, 2017
To provide you with more relevant experiences and marketing messages based on your likely interests, we collect information about you and how you engage with us. Here is how you can control your information.
Communication from Adobe
• Tell us your Adobe marketing preferences by updating your Adobe ID profile. You can also tell us to stop sending you marketing emails by clicking the unsubscribe link included at the bottom of Adobe's marketing emails.
• Tell us your Behance marketing preferences by updating your account settings (under the “Notifications” tab) at Behance.net. You can also tell Behance to stop sending you marketing emails by clicking the unsubscribe link included at the bottom of Behance's marketing emails.
In some cases, Adobe needs to send you “transactional” emails relating to normal business operations. For example, we may email you to inform you that your subscription is expiring or that someone has sent you a document using an Adobe app. You cannot opt out of these emails.
Your use of Adobe applications
We may collect information about how you use Adobe desktop products and mobile apps.
Identifiable Data Collection
Tell us if you would like us to stop collecting information about how you use our desktop and mobile apps.
Anonymous Data Collection
Tell us if you would like us to stop collecting anonymous information about how you use our desktop apps by going to Help > Adobe Product Improvement Program within the app to opt out. Please note that you will have to repeat this process for every Adobe desktop app that collects anonymous information.
Anonymous and Identifiable Data Collection
Tell us if you would like us to stop collecting both anonymous and identifiable data about how you use our mobile apps by using the app’s settings panel that refers to mobile app usage data collection. Please note that you will have to repeat this process for each Adobe mobile app that collects usage data.
Machine learning analysis on your content
Adobe uses automated systems to analyze your content using techniques such as machine learning in order to improve our apps and websites. This analysis may occur as the content is sent or received via an Adobe website, or when the content is stored on Adobe servers. Learn more about how this works. If you do not want us to do this, then you can opt out in your account preferences.
