We collect non-personally identifiable information concerning the recipients of documents that use our technology. This information, which is referred to as “document analytics,” includes, among other things the recipient’s IP address and browser, and may include information concerning the recipient’s use of the document.
We collect personally identifiable information from our customers. Personally identifiable information refers to information that is collected in conjunction with a customer’s name. If you do not want us to collect personally identifiable information from you, you should not provide it to us.
We collect document analytics automatically using technology which is very similar to the type of technology that has been used for years to collect information about websites and emails. For instance, many website and emails embed a “pixel tag,” “web beacon” or “clear GIF” in the content of the website or email. These terms refer to an electronic image, often a single pixel, which is ordinarily not visible and that may be associated with a cookie on your hard drive. A “cookie” is a small text file that resides on your computer to identify you as a unique user. If you choose, you can set your browser to reject cookies or you can manually delete cookies on your computer by following your browser’s help file directions. These types of technology are used commonly to help measure information about visitors to websites, or recipients of email. Specifically, they allow servers to automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personally identifiable information about you is revealed in this process.
We use this same technology in documents other than websites and email, such as in resumes and cover letters. This technology allows us to measure such things as who is viewing a document, and how often a document is viewed.
We also collect personally identifiable information from our customers by asking them to provide it to us on-line. For instance, if you choose to use our products or services we may request that you provide your name, email address, mailing address, and payment information.
We share information in a number of circumstances, including, but not limited to, the following:
Document Analytics. We share summaries of the analytical data that we collect in conjunction with a specific document with the individual who requested that we collect analytical information on that document.
Reports and Studies. We may use the document analytic information that we obtain in order to conduct reports, studies, or surveys that we may choose to make public. Such reports, studies, or surveys will not include any personally identifiable information.
Subcontractors. From time to time we may share information with subcontractors that provide us with services. These services may include, among other things, helping to create or maintain our databases, helping to research and analyze the people who request products, services or information from us, and/or helping to process payment card information.
Law Enforcement. We may report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful, or that we reasonably believe may aid a law enforcement investigation into unlawful activity. In addition, we reserve the right to release your information to law enforcement agencies if we determine, in our sole judgment, that either you have violated our policies, or the release of your information may protect the rights, property or safety of us, you, or another person.
As Permitted By Law. We may share your information with others as required by, or permitted by, law. This may include sharing your personally identifiable information with governmental entities, or third parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, other legal process, or as we believe is necessary to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or to defend against possible legal claims that we determine in our sole discretion might be brought against us.
