Any changes or modifications will be effective immediately upon posting the updated Privacy Statement on the Site.
3. Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect and process the following data about you:
- Information you put into forms or surveys on our site at any time. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to order a product, to process an order, to register for a service, to provide you with a subscription, or to do business with us if you are a supplier or a business partner.
- A record of any correspondence between us. For instance, we provide Online Chat and Live Call sessions on our Web sites to assist you while you’re navigating through our sites; we will use personal information you provide via these sessions in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
- Information about your computer. For example, when you visit our Web site or access our product offerings, we may log certain information that your browser sends us, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access time, and referring Web site addresses, and we may collect information about the pages you view within our sites and other actions you take while visiting us.
- From time to time, we may also collect information that pertains to you indirectly through other sources, such as partners. When we do so, we ask the partners to confirm that the information was legally acquired and that we have the right to obtain it from them and use it.
4. Use of Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
We may use PII information in the following ways:
Fulfilling your Request
If a product or service, a callback, or specific marketing materials was requested, we will use the information you provided to fulfill that request. For instance, when installing our products, collecting information is either automatic, or requires an activation. In the case of automatic registration, the product will send information as to the license key, server information and other required information. If a manual activation is required, this information is required to be transmitted to us for validation and a return of an authorization key.
Improve your Experience
We may use information we collect about you to provide you with a personalized experience on our web sites, such as providing you with content which may interest you and making navigation on our sites easier.
We may notify you about a product update or fix to support products or services you purchased from us with the personal information you provided.
As mentioned earlier, we provide live call and online chat services to assist you through the website and the products you need in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
The information you provide to Content.ly, as well as the information we have collected about you indirectly, may be used by Content.ly for marketing purposes. We will offer you the opportunity to choose whether to have your information used in this way. You may at any time choose not to receive marketing materials from us by use of the unsubscribe link included on all our marketing emails. For more information, refer to the “Retention” and Contact Us” sections below.
In connection with a job application or inquiry, whether advertised on a Content.ly web site or otherwise, you may provide us with information about yourself, such as a C.V. or resume. We may use this information throughout Content.ly to address your inquiry or consider you for employment purposes. Unless you tell us not to do so, we may keep the information for future consideration.
Link to Third Party Websites
From time to time, Content.ly will provide links to third-party web sites. For example, Content.ly may provide links to a third party containing news on Content.ly and Content.ly products. These links are provided as a service to you. These sites are operated by independent entities that have their own privacy policies. Content.ly’s Privacy Statements does not apply to such other sites or to the use that those entities make of your information. Content.ly has no control over the content displayed on such sites, nor over the measures, if any, that are taken by such sites to protect the privacy of your information.
Information for Business Partners
If you represent a Content.ly business partner, you may visit Content.ly sites intended specifically for Content.ly business partners. We may use information provided on that site to administer and develop our business relationship with you, the business partner you represent, and Content.ly business partners generally. For instance, this may involve using your information to send you details of Content.ly business partner programs. It may also include sharing certain information with other business partners (subject to any confidentiality obligations that may exist), or Content.ly customers or prospects. In connection with a transaction or program, we may also contact you as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research purposes.
5. Third-Party Application and Websites
To allow you to interact with other Web sites on which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media sites) or join communities on such sites, we may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow you to login, post content or join communities from our Web sites. We may also provide you with general links to non-Content.ly Web sites. Your use of these links and applications is subject to the third parties’ privacy policies, and you should become familiar with the third-party sites' privacy policies before using the links or applications. Content.ly is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other Web sites.
6. Information Security
We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information and maintain its accuracy. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties.
We also require that our suppliers protect such information from unauthorized access, use and disclosure.
7. Business Transfers and Sharing of Personal Information
Content.ly is a global organization having business processes, management structures and technical systems that cross borders. The information we receive about you may be shared within Content.ly and transferred to countries where we have our business presence and connection with the uses identified above. We provide a consistent level of protection for Personal Information all over the world in adherence with our practices and privacy statement. This implies that even in countries who don't have as stringent data protection laws as the rest, Content.ly will still handle the Personal Information in the manner appropriate to your country.
In some cases, Content.ly requires its suppliers to collect, store, utilize, and otherwise process information on its behalf. In such cases Content.ly requires that its suppliers handle information in a manner consistent with Content.ly's policies and standards.
We may disclose your personal information which we collected from our website to Non-Content.ly entities such as our business partners. We only do so with your prior consent and as described in the privacy statement. We do not sell or lease such information.
When transferring your information outside of the country collection for the purposes mentioned above, Content.ly complies with applicable laws of the country of collection.
8. Online Advertising
Content.ly does not deliver third party online advertisements on our web sites but we advertise our products and services on others' web sites. Please familiarize yourself with those web site operators' or network advertisers' privacy policies to understand their practices relating to advertising, including what type of information they may collect about your Internet usage.
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services or information.
If you wish to request no further marketing mailings, you may unsubscribe from our mailing lists using the unsubscribe link included on every marketing email.
If you wish us to no longer retain your personal information, (a “Right to be Forgotten” request) contact us at email@example.com. Keep in mind, however, that there will be residual information that will remain within Content.ly databases, access logs and other records, which may or may not contain personally identifiable information. The residual information will not be used for commercial purposes, but we will retain and use the Personal Identifiable Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
