Policy Version Date: August 31st, 2017
This Privacy Statement applies to the technology services owned and operated by CommercialTribe, Inc. (“CommercialTribe”). CommercialTribe has created this privacy statement (“Statement”) in order to demonstrate our commitment to customer privacy. This Statement applies to all of our products and our websites, including www.commercialtribe.com, www.commercialtribe.net, and our associated mobile solutions (collectively, the “Applications”) and the services offered by CommercialTribe through the Applications (the “Services”) to customers and individuals who are authorized to access the Services (“Users”). This Statement governs our data collection, processing and usage practices. It also describes the choices available to you regarding the use of, your access to, and how to update and correct your personal information. By using the Applications, you consent to the data practices described in this Statement. If you do not agree with the data practices described in this Statement, you should not use the Applications or the Services.
CommercialTribe collects information under the direction of its Clients, and has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. If you are a customer of one of our Clients and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our Clients that use our service, please contact the Client that you interact with directly. We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our Clients.
CommercialTribe has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct his query to the CommercialTribe’s Client (the data controller). If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
We will retain personal data we process on behalf of our Clients for as long as needed to provide services to our Client. CommercialTribe will retain this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
1. Information Collected
We may collect personal identification information from Users and visitors to our Applications in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our Applications, fill out a form, and in connection with the Service or the other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Applications. When registered to use the Services through our Applications, we will require our customers to give us contact information which includes certain user personal information, such as name, company name, email address, and role or departmental organization, as well as the number of users within the organization that will be using the Services. CommercialTribe also requires Users to submit video, audio, or presentation content where necessary to respond to activities or prompts from Clients. At the time you express interest in attaining additional information about our Services, or when you register for the Services, we may also ask for additional information about you and your company, such as title, department name, or additional company information, such as number of employees and industry. Users and visitors can browse the public website without providing any personal information and individuals may always refuse to supply personally identification information at any time, except that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities, such as login and recording. Use of the core CommercialTribe application requires the collection of certain personal information, at a minimum name, email address, and company name, as well as User-submitted video content, should the User choose to use the Service.
We may collect non-personal identification information about Users and visitors to our Applications whenever they interact with our Applications or use our Services. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Users and visitors means of connection to our Applications, such as the operating system and the Internet service providers utilized and other similar information. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve the functionality of the services that we offer you.
2. How We Use Collected Information
We use the information you provide to:
- Administer your account with us, deliver our Services, and customize the Services we provide to you.
- Respond to your inquiries or customer service requests.
- Enable you record video or audio content, or submit presentation content, in response to prompts or activities.
- Send you service or promotional communications through email and notices in CommercialTribe.
- Deliver our Services by sharing information with third parties, if necessary. For example, to enable email communications to users.
- Enable you to share your information and communicate with other Users.
In general, information (including personal information) you submit to us is used by us to provide you and others with the Services, to respond to requests that you make, to improve our Services and to better tailor the features, performance and support of the Services. In addition, CommercialTribe uses the information that we collect to set up Services for individuals and their organizations. Submitted video, audio, or presentation content is used to create or respond to Client-issued prompts and activities. We may also use the information to contact customers to further discuss customer interest in our company, the Services that we provide, and to send information regarding our company or partners, such as promotions and events. User email addresses and any personal customer information will not be distributed or shared with any third parties other than CommercialTribe employees, consultants and representatives, except as otherwise provided below. In cases of onward transfer to third parties of data of EU individuals received pursuant to the EU-US Privacy Shield (see Section 12 below), CommercialTribe is potentially liable.
Users can opt out of being contacted by us, or receiving such information from us, at any time by updating your marketing email preferences, as indicated below or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Separately, Users are also asked to provide an email address when registering for the Services, in order to receive a username and password. We may also email information regarding updates to the Services or CommercialTribe. Again, email will not be distributed or shared and Users can opt out of receiving any communication by updating your marketing email preferences at the time it is distributed, or at the time any User registers for the Services.
Except as we explicitly state at the time we request information, or as provided for in the CommercialTribe user agreement governing your use of the Services (the “SaaS Agreement”) or this Statement, we do not disclose to any third party the information provided. Any financial and billing information collected through the use of the Applications is used solely to check the qualifications of prospective customers and to bill for Services. This billing information is not used by CommercialTribe for marketing or promotional purposes.
Users of the Services will be using the Applications to host data and information, some of which may be private or proprietary and may contain personal information about individuals (“User Data”). This includes User name, email address, role/hierarchy information, and self-submitted video/audio and presentation content, where applicable. CommercialTribe will not review, share, distribute, print, or reference any such User Data except as provided in the CommercialTribe SaaS Agreement, or as may be required by law. We or our third party service providers may view or access User Data only in connection with providing the Services on our behalf and for the purpose of resolving a problem, support issue, or suspected violation of the SaaS Agreement, or as may be required by law. This includes data processing by authorized third parties as part of the SpotLight© service. Users are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of their user registration and password, as CommercialTribe has no access to user passwords.
Information provided by Users and visitors to the Applications is logged to help diagnose technical problems, and to administer our Applications in order to constantly improve the quality of the Service. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and Users, and we may provide such information to third parties that assist us for these purposes. We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools and services, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Services. These tools collect information sent by your browser or mobile device, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Services. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual User.
3. How We Protect Your Information
We adopt commercially reasonable and appropriate data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of User Data and your personal information, username, password, transaction information, and data stored on our Applications. When our Applications are accessed using any currently supported browser, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption during transmission of User Data. If at any time you have questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at email@example.com.
4. Disclosure of Personal Information
Except as otherwise stated in this Statement, we do not disclose to or share your personal information with third parties, unless you ask or authorize us to do so. We do not sell, rent or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes.
We may provide your personal information to third party service providers and suppliers who work on behalf of or with us to provide you with some of the services and features of the Services and to help us communicate with our Users (for example, in the submission of e-mail communications on our behalf and the providing of customer service). However, these service providers and suppliers do not have any independent right to use this information except to help us provide the Services, and are subject to the same data security and privacy terms as internal practices. Email addresses and names are provided to a third-party transactional email service to communicate with users, and this service can be suspended at any time within the user profile or by request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the event we undergo a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your personal information will likely be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of CommercialTribe or its assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this Statement. You hereby consent to CommercialTribe sharing your personal information under the above circumstances.
In certain situations, CommercialTribe may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also disclose your personal information as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, bankruptcy proceedings, or similar legal process when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request. We also may be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
