We may change this policy from time to time. If there are material changes to this policy, we will notify you more directly. We encourage you to check this policy whenever you use our websites and services to understand how your personal information is used.
We collect information from you in various ways when you use our websites and services. We may also supplement this information with information from other companies. We collect two general types of information: personal information and aggregate data. As used in this policy, personal information means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name and email address), and demographic and other information when directly linked to information that can identify an individual.
Our definition of personal information does not include aggregate data. Aggregate data is information we collect about a group or category of services or users from which individual user identities have been removed. In other words, no personal information is included in aggregate data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends in our users’ needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our services. This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate data, and we may share aggregate data about our users with third parties for various purposes, including to help us better understand our customer needs and improve our services and for advertising and marketing purposes.
The following are the specific types of information we collect from you.
Information You Give Us. We collect information you give us on our website and when you register for and use our services. Examples include the following:
Registration and Profile Information. When you register to use our services or update your profile, we may collect various kinds of information about you including, your name and email address; your title, company, and other profile information you provide; demographic information; and information you upload such as photos, files, and documents.
Payment Information. We or our third-party billing vendors may collect your billing and payment information, including credit card information and billing address.
Submissions and Customer Service. From time to time we may use surveys, contests, or sweepstakes requesting personal or demographic information and customer feedback.
Automatically Collected Information. We automatically receive certain types of information when you interact with our webpages, services, and communications. For example, it is standard for your web browser to automatically send information to every website you visit, including ours. That information includes your computer’s IP address, access times, your browser type and language, and referring website addresses. We may also collect information about the type of operating system you use, your account activity, and files and pages accessed or used by you.
In general, we use your personal information to process your requests or transactions; to provide you with information or services you request; to inform you about other information, events, promotions, products, or services we think will be of interest to you; to facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the website and services; and to otherwise serve you and our users. For example, we may use your personal information:
We take reasonable steps to protect information we collect from you to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. In addition, highly confidential personal information such as credit card number and password that we request from you on our website is protected with encryption, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, during transmission over the internet. The servers on which information is stored are kept in a controlled environment with limited access. While we take reasonable efforts to guard personal information we knowingly collect directly from you, no security system is impenetrable. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any passively collected personal information you choose to include in documents you store on our systems are maintained at adequate levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations you may have relating to that information.
Your account information and access to our service are accessible only through the use of an individual user ID and password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. In addition, always log out and close your browser when you finish your session. Please note that we will never ask you to disclose your password in an unsolicited phone call or email.
We may send you communications or data regarding our websites and services, including but not limited to (i) notices about your use of our websites and services, including any notices concerning violations of use, (ii) updates, and (iii) promotional information and materials regarding our products and services.
You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from us by following the opt-out instructions provided in those emails. You may also opt out of receiving promotional emails and other promotional communications from us at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific request. Opt-out requests will not apply to transactional service messages, such as security alerts and notices about your current account and services.
