20. Data we collect

Graphcore’s PopVision® tools collect data from you about the way in which you use them. The data we collect depends on how you interact with the tools and may change between releases. This data helps us to develop and improve the tools.

We do not obtain any personal data when you use the PopVision® tools. On installation, we randomly generate a unique identifier to link your interactions with one of the tools together. This identifier is stored with your preferences for the tool and can be seen at any time in the About dialog. We also randomly generate an identifier each time you open the tool to distinguish between sessions of usage.

We do not collect any data about the reports or models you analyse, such as the names of variables and events.

In addition, if you choose to submit feedback via the Give Feedback form, you will use that form to voluntarily provide us with additional information. This information may include personal data such as your name, email address and any other information you decide to share with us.

As well as the information you provide in the form, we will also collect the version number of the application and which operating system you are using.

The data collected from the feedback form will not be linked with the unique identifier we have placed if you have also consented to the collection of telemetry data. We will treat your personal information in a manner consistent with Graphcore’s Privacy Policy, which may be found here: Privacy Policy.
