You may browse the Website without providing any personal information to us. However, if you request receipt of certain notifications and updates, we may collect personally identifiable information, or “PII,” which you voluntarily give us, including your name, telephone number, email address, postal address, and any other information which would allow someone to personally identify you. Certain non-personally identifiable information, or non-PII, which does not identify you, may also be collected when you use this Website, including the type of the Internet browser and operating system you use, other navigational clickstream data, etc.
Purpose and Use
Alibaba uses the PII collected through this Website to provide you with public information regarding us and our services; to share news, updates and reports in response to your inquiries; for gaining an understanding of your needs; for performing statistical analysis or analyses of global website usage; for security and legal compliance; for direct marketing activities; for notifying you of any changes to this Website or our services; and for other services. We also reserve the right to make full use of information that is not PII.

Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s Internet browser to store your preferences. Cookies do not provide your email address or other PII.

Third Party Links and Policies
Do Not Track Policy
The laws of some jurisdictions require that operators of website and online services disclose how they respond to a Do Not Track signal and whether other third parties may collect PII about an individual’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.
Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common, global understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, Alibaba does not currently respond to Do Not Track signals.
