Information Use

You or the administrator of a business account may give us permission to access information from third-party services. For example, you may want to connect your Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive or DropBox accounts to our Services, which allows us to access, display and store files from those accounts as authorized by you. You may also choose to create an account or login using your Google or Facebook credentials, so we will receive your name and email address as permitted by your profile settings in order to authenticate you. You can also authorize us to synchronized a contact list, so that you can easily connect with those contacts within our platforms. The information we receive when you link or integrate our Services with a third-party service depends on the settings and privacy policy controlled by that third-party service. You can check the privacy settings and notices in these third-party services to understand what data may be shared with us.

Legal basis for processing

Other users of the Services: Other users of the Services may provide information about you. For example, we may receive your email address from a user when they provide it in order to invite you to the Services. Similarly, an administrator of an organisation may provide information they may find useful for content creation, for example, they may provide us with your name, email address and telephone number, so that a business cards can be easily created with your details.

Partners: We work with partners who provide consulting, implementation, training around the Services we offer. Some of these partners also help us to market, promote and resell our products.

Policies Changes: We may change this policy from time to time, and when we do, we will revise the updated date at the top of this page. We encourage Users to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. If you continue to use our Services after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide more prominent notice or obtain your consent as required by law.

Links: Please note that content created and displayed through our Services may contain links to third party websites. We hereby disclaim any liability in relation to the privacy practices of other websites.

Notice to End Users

Many of our products are intended for use by organizations. Where the Services are made available to you through an organisation account (e.g. your employer, supplier or client), that organisation is the administrator of the Services and is responsible for the accounts and/or Service sites over which it has control.

If this is the case, please direct your data privacy questions to your administrator, as your use of the Services is subject to that organization’s policies. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of an administrator’s organization, which may be different than this policy.

Administrators are able to:

  • View and disclose content you created or uploaded on the account.
  • Modify and take ownership of content you created/uploaded on the account.
  • Require you to reset your account password;
  • Restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Services;
  • Access information in and about your account;
  • Access or retain information stored as part of your account;
  • Install or uninstall third-party apps or other integrations

In some cases, administrators can also:

  • Restrict, suspend or terminate your account access;
  • Change the email address associated with your account;
  • Change your information, including profile information;
  • Restrict your ability to edit, restrict, modify or delete information

Even if the Services are not currently administered to you by an organisation, if you use an email address provided by an organization (such as your work email address) to access the Services, then the owner of the domain associated with your email address (e.g. your employer) may assert administrative control over your account and use of the Services at a later date. You will be notified if this happens.

If you do not want an administrator to be able to assert control over your account or use of the Services, use your personal email address to register for or access the Services. If an administrator has not already asserted control over your account or access to the Services, you can update the email address associated with your account through your account settings in your profile. Once an administrator asserts control over your account or use of the Services, you will no longer be able to change the email address associated with your account without administrator approval.

Please contact your organization or refer to your administrator’s organizational policies for more information.
