These terms and any terms referenced herein form the legal agreement between you and CA Inc., (“CA”), that governs your use and access to ca.com (the “Site”). By accessing, browsing or using the Site you agree to be bound by these terms (the “Terms” or “Site Terms”). If you do not agree to the Terms, you must not use, access or browse the Site.
You can also access interactive and informational portions of the Site, like the community or support site, that require you to register with ca.com in order to view or fully utilize them (the “User Sites”). Those portions of the Site may require additional terms, which will be displayed to you when you register (the “User Site Terms”).
If you want to give one of the CA products a try, check out our trials page here. CA product trials are also subject to additional terms.
If the User Site Terms or trial terms conflict with these Terms, the User Site Terms or the trial terms will apply.
We hope you visit our Site often, and when you do, stop by this page as well, as the Terms may be changed or updated from time to time. We will always post the date the Terms were updated at the top of the page.
Now, let’s get to it.
We take privacy seriously. We encourage you to review the CA Privacy Notice, which will tell you how we may collect, use and protect your information and data. You can find the CA Privacy Notice here.
For information regarding the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and our policy please see our DMCA Notice here.
Ownership of Content
Our goal is to provide you with broad, rich and diverse content on the Site. We publish materials that are owned by CA, its subsidiaries and affiliates, or CA licensors, partners etc. Everything we publish on the Site is protected by copyright laws and considered the intellectual property of the respective owners. If you use any materials published on the Site, you may do so, but only for your own internal non-commercial purposes, and so long as all trademark(s), copyright(s) and other proprietary notices are intact and you do not edit the materials.
CA reserves any and all rights or permissions not expressly granted to you in these Terms.
Products and Services
Because this Site is international, certain products, services or portions of the Site may not be available in your country. Please contact your local sales representative for availability information.

Some parts of the Site, such as the Community site, allow you to post or read content posted by other users. While CA does not generally edit or monitor content posted by our users, we require that all users follow the simple rules that are listed below. If you don’t follow the guidelines, we may remove the content and/or limit or eliminate your access to the Site. We believe that these rules make everyone’s experience on the Site better—the “Technology Golden Rule,” if you will.
- Be honest.
- Act like the pro you are, and be respectful of others.
- Share information wisely and remember that all posts could be permanent.
- Keep information relevant to the discussions and free of advertising or solicitations.
- Only post things that you are lawfully able to post. This means don’t post anything that you are prohibited from sharing, you don’t have the necessary rights to post or anything that is harmful or disparaging to a third party (other users included)!
We love hearing from you, but please keep in mind that anything you submit to us is considered non-confidential. Feedback related to CA, and/or our products and services, is considered non-confidential and the property of CA. We will be entitled to use the feedback free of any restrictions and may disseminate it in any form.
Third Party Links
The Site may contain hyperlinks to third party websites. While we will try to make it clear when a hyperlink is not one of ours, it is important that you realize that CA makes no representations or warranties regarding these third party sites or any content that may be linked to through a third party hyperlink.
(Pro tip: if you “hover” over a hyperlink with your mouse, the actual web address that you will be redirected to will display at the bottom of your browser).
We generally publish everything on the Site in English, but we try to accommodate our visitors and customers from around the globe with translations where we can. These translations may be done by computer (we love technology), but may not be reviewed with the same vigor as our other content is, so we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of these translations.
