Ways we Process Personal Data Platform Registration and Use
Data: Clients and Authorized Users may register and create an account (for themselves or on behalf of other Authorized Users) on our Platform. If you choose to register, we will process Identity Data and Contact Data in connection with the creation, operation, and maintenance of that account. We may also collect certain User Content from you, for example, in response to a request for data, information, questionnaire responses, file uploads, or similar matters.
Uses: We use Identity Data, Contact Data, and User Content as necessary to create, maintain, and provide you with important information about your account, and to otherwise provide the services and features Clients or Authorized Users request. Subject to Your Rights & Choices, and consistent with our business interests, we may process Identity Data and Contact Data in connection with Marketing Communications, Aggregate Analytics, Internal Processes and Service Improvement, and for the other lawful purposes described below.
Data: We may process Identity Data, Device/Network Data and Contact Data in connection with email marketing communications (such as emails or texts), which you might receive if you register for an account on our Platform, choose to receive marketing communications, or engage in a transaction allowing us to send you those marketing communications. We may also collect Device/Network Data when you open or interact with those marketing communications.
Uses: Subject to Your Rights & Choices, we use Identity Data and Contact Data as necessary to customize, deliver, and otherwise process marketing communications, and in order to tailor certain communications to individuals’ preferences and requests. Additionally, we may process Device/Network Data from devices receiving those marketing communications as part of our business interest in understanding whether our emails are opened or other aspects of engagement with such marketing communications.

Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies
Data: We, and certain third parties, may process Identity Data, Contact Data, and Device/Network Data when you interact with cookies and similar technologies on our Services. We may receive this data (or Aggregate Data derived from it) from third parties to the extent allowed by the applicable partner. Please note that the privacy policies of third parties may also apply to these technologies and the Personal Data collected through them.
Uses: Subject to Your Rights & Choices, we may use this information as follows:
for “essential” or “functional” purposes, such as to enable certain features of the Services, or keeping you logged in during your session;
for “analytics” and “personalization” purposes, consistent with our business interest in how the Services are used or perform, how users engage with and navigate through our Service, what sites users visit before visiting the Service, how often they visit the Service, and other similar information, as well as to greet users by name and modify the appearance of the Service to usage history, tailor the Service based on geographic location or Client, and understand characteristics of users in various technical and geographic contexts; and
for “retargeting” or similar advertising purposes on our Corporate Site, so that you can see advertisements from us on other websites. These technologies and the data they collect, may be used by advertisers to deliver ads that are more relevant to you based on content you have viewed, including content on our Corporate Sites. These tracking technologies may also help prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times, and help us understand whether you have interacted with or viewed ads we’ve delivered to you. This collection and ad targeting may take place both on our Corporate Sites, as well as and on third-party websites that participate in the ad network (e.g. any advertisements delivered by that ad network on a third-party website).
Note: Some of these technologies can be used to identify you across platforms, devices, sites, and services.
How we Process Data for Specific Purposes Aggregate Analytics
Subject to Your Rights & Choices, we will collect and aggregate your Personal Data and information about your use of the Services in order to identify certain trends in how our Services are used and perform, the individuals who use our Services, and the products and services most relevant to users (“Aggregated Data”). Aggregated Data will not contain information from which you may be individually identified. We may use this information in order to create analytics that help us better identify patterns and trends among employees, and provide analytics to our Clients regarding our Services and their employees.
Internal Processes and Service Improvement
Subject to Your Rights & Choices, we may use any Personal Data we process through our Services as necessary in connection with our business interests in improving the design of our Services, to create a personalized user experience (such as greeting you by name, or associating Authorized Users with Clients and Platform versions), and for ensuring the security and stability of the Platform. For example, we may use Personal Data to understand what parts of our Services are most relevant to users, how users interact with various aspects of our Platform, how our Services perform or fail to perform, etc., or we may analyze use of the Services to determine if there are specific activities that might indicate an information security risk to the Services or our Clients and Authorized Users.
If we process Personal Data in connection with our Services in a way not described in this Policy, this Policy will still apply generally (e.g. with respect to Your Rights & Choices) unless otherwise stated when you provide it.
Note that we may, without your consent, also process your Personal Data on certain public interest grounds. For example, we may process Personal Data as necessary to fulfill our legal obligations, to protect the vital interests of any individuals, or otherwise in the public interest. Please see the Data Sharing section for more information about how we disclose Personal Data in extraordinary circumstances.
Information we collect may be shared with a variety of parties, depending upon the purpose for and context in which that information was provided. We generally transfer data to the categories of recipients or in connection with specific business purposes, each described below.
We process data on behalf of Clients, and may share your Personal Data with Clients to the extent such information was provided to us for processing on the Client’s behalf, or in the event the Client has a legitimate business purpose for receiving the information. For example, Authorized Users’ account information (for example name and email) may be made available to the relevant Client when necessary to document Client use of the Platform, or as appropriate to ensure the security of Client accounts.
In connection with our general business operations, product/service improvements, to enable certain features, and in connection with our other lawful business interests, we may share your Personal Data with service providers or subprocessors who provide certain services or process data on our behalf. For example, we may use cloud-based hosting providers to host our Services or disclose information as part of our own internal operations, such as security operations, internal research, etc.). When we disclose information for business purposes we may disclose Identity Data, Contact Data, Device/Network Data, and User Content.
Your Personal Data may be processed in the event that we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, liquidation, or sale of all or a portion of our assets. For example, Personal Data may be part of the assets transferred, or may be disclosed (subject to confidentiality restrictions) during the due diligence process for a potential transaction.
In order to streamline certain business operations, share promotions and content we believe would be of interest to you, and develop products and services that better meet the interests and needs of our customers, we may share your Personal Data with any of our current or future, subsidiaries, parent companies, and other affiliates.
For purposes of the California Consumer Privacy Act, we do not sell your Personal Data.

We retain information for so long as it, in our discretion, remains relevant to its purpose, and in any event, for so long as is required by law. We will review retention periods periodically, and may sometimes pseudonymize or anonymize data held for longer periods, if appropriate.
Our Services are neither directed at nor intended for use by minors under the age of majority in the relevant jurisdiction. Further, we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from such individuals. If we learn that we have inadvertently done so, we will promptly delete it.
We operate in and use service providers located in the United States. If you are located outside the U.S., your Personal Data may be transferred to the U.S. The U.S. does not provide the same legal protections guaranteed to Personal Data in the European Union. Accordingly, your Personal Data may be transferred to the U.S. pursuant to the EU’s Standard Contractual Clauses, or other adequacy mechanisms, or pursuant to exemptions provided under EU law. Contact us for more information regarding the mechanisms we use to ensure adequate protection of data subject to EU Law.
