You may choose to provide additional information about yourself or your company including but not limited to your address, job title, profile picture, account description, company logo and industry information.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

Like most website operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our Website and Service. From time to time, we release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on usage trends of our Website.

We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blog posts. We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.

DISCLOSURE

We disclose Personal Information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that need to know that information to process it on our behalf or to provide our Service via our Website, and that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

We will release Personal Information only when we believe the release is appropriate for legal compliance and law enforcement (including to government agencies with statutory law enforcement responsibilities), to facilitate court proceedings, enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions, or protect the rights, property, or safety of the Company, our users, or others. We do not sell, lease or in any other way provide your Personal Information to any other company, person or agency.

THIRD PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your Personal Information will be handled by these providers.

In addition, certain providers may be located in, or have facilities that are located in, a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

Once you leave our Website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Terms and Conditions.
