We work with a global network of partners who provide consulting, implementation, training and other services around our Service. Some of these partners also help us to market and promote our Service, generate information about prospective customers for us, and resell subscriptions to our Service.
We may receive information from these partners, such as billing information, technical contact information, company name, what Ionburst Service editions You have purchased subscriptions for, or may be interested in, evaluation information You have provided, what events You have attended, and what country You are in.
How We use the information we collect depends in part on which Service a Customer uses, how the Customer uses the Service, and any preferences a Customer may have communicated to us. Below are the specific purposes for which We use the information We collect.
If You Fail to Provide Personal Data
Where we need to collect Personal by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
Provision of the Service
Our Service also includes features that personalize Customers’ users’ experience, enhance users’ productivity, and improve users’ ability to collaborate effectively.
Improvement of the Service
We are always looking for ways to make Our Service smarter, faster, secure, integrated, and useful to Customers. We use collective learnings about how people use Our Service and feedback provided directly to Ionburst to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Service.
For example, We examine aggregated usage patterns of Our Customers to determine which third-party applications that integrate with Our Service are most frequently used by Customers, in order to ensure that the Service performs as well as possible. In some cases, We apply these learnings across the Service editions to improve and develop similar features or to better facilitate the interoperability of the third-party applications that Customers use with the Service. We also may test and analyze certain new features with some users before making those feature available to all users.
Aggregated data could be derived from Personal Information but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal Your identity. For example, we may aggregate your data about how you use our website, to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your Personal Information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as Personal Information which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
Security of the Service
For security purposes, We use information about Customers and their use of the Service to verify accounts and activity, to monitor suspicious or fraudulent activity and to identify violations of Service policies, and to assist Customers in their monitoring of such suspicious or fraudulent activity.
Our Legitimate Interests
To protect Our legitimate business interests and legal rights, and where required by law or where We believe it is necessary to protect our legal rights, interests and the interests of others, We use information about You in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, and audit functions, and disclosures in connection with the acquisition, merger or sale of a business.
With Your consent, We use information about You where You have given us consent to do so for a specific purpose not listed above. For example, We may publish testimonials or featured Customer stories to promote the Service, with Your permission.
Legal Basis for Processing (for EEA Users)
If You are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), We collect and process information about You only where we have a legal basis or bases for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases depend on the Service edition(s) that You use and how you use them, and/or how You interact with the Web site(s), and/or whether You have a business relationship (for example, if You are an employee) with Ionburst Customer or prospective Customer. This means We collect and use Your Personal Information only where:
- We need it to provide You the Service, including to operate the Service, provide Customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the Service;
- It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by Your data protection interests, in Ionburst’s assessment after Ionburst’s analysis in compliance with applicable data protection laws), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Service and provide information to Customers and prospective Customers in such regard, and to protect Our legal rights and interests;
- You give Us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
- We need to process Your Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation.
Protection of Information
Ionburst’s Web sites offer publicly-accessible blogs and community forums. Any information provided in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.
The security of Ionburst’s and Our third party providers’ infrastructure is a critical priority for Ionburst, and We implement safeguards designed to protect Your data, including Personal Information. However, no security system is impenetrable, and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, We cannot guarantee that data, including Personal Information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on Our systems or otherwise in Our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion or other unauthorized access by others.
Ionburst will retain Personal Information it processes on behalf of Visitors for as long as needed to provide Web site services to Visitors. Ionburst will retain and use this Personal Information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
