TYPES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We generally collect contact information (such as a person’s name, company or employer name, email address, mailing address, and phone number). This contact information is typically work contact information as we offer and provide our goods and services to businesses, not to individuals. We may also request and collect other information such as general information about a company’s potential needs as they relate to the goods and services we provide.
We also collect technical data automatically when you visit our Website such as your IP address, browser type and version, operating system, information about your activity on the Website including the date and time you access the Website and similar web server log information, as well as your indicated preferences in using our Website. Some of this information could be used to identify you or be associated with you.
THE PURPOSE OF OUR COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

To respond to and process your specific inquiries and requests;
To help deliver information about our services to our customers and prospective customers;
To explore, negotiate, and perform agreements and transactions with you and businesses with which you are associated;
To administer, protect, operate, and maintain the Website and our systems and networks;

LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION
If applicable in your jurisdiction, we only process your personal information where we have an applicable legal basis for doing so. Our legal basis will depend on the personal information concerned, the specific context in which we collect it, and the purposes for which it is used. However, we will normally collect and use your personal information only where we have your consent to do so (typically in order to send you marketing communications), where we require the personal information to create or perform a contract with you or a company with which you are associated, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (for most of our activities not covered by consent or creation or performance of a contract). In some very rare cases, we may also have a legal basis to collect or use your personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
If you have specific questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the information provided in the section below entitled “How to Contact Us.“
HOW WE COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect information that you give us. Typically, this is contact information for you and your company or employer that we collect directly from you, such as when you request information about our offerings via our Website, or provide us your contact information as a billing or vendor contact. In such instances, you generally decide how much information to share with us, but not providing this information may prevent us from fulfilling your request or otherwise performing activities for which the information is collected.
We collect information automatically. By visiting and interacting with our Website, we collect certain technical data by automated means such as your IP address, browser type and version, operating system, information about your activity on the Website, the date and time you access the Website, and your indicated preferences in using our Website.
Information from other sources: We may obtain information about you from other sources. For example, your employer may provide us with your contact information as your employer’s billing contact.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We do not sell or rent your personal information, nor do we share it with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing use. Generally, we share personal information to facilitate the operation of our business including the marketing and promotion of our goods and services, to facilitate changes to or transfers of our business, as required by law, or with your consent.
Here are some examples of how we share personal information:
With our contracted providers who perform services for us such as cloud infrastructure, data storage, communications, and technical services, marketing and relations management services, investigations and accounting services, customer support, and bill collection services.

If we believe disclosure is necessary and appropriate to prevent physical, financial, or other harm, injury, or loss, including to protect against fraud or credit risk.
With legal, governmental, or judicial authorities, as instructed or required by those authorities or applicable laws, or in relation to a legal activity, such as in response to a subpoena or investigating suspected illicit activity. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies activities that we in good faith believe to be illegal.
In connection with, or during negotiations of, an acquisition, merger, asset sale, or other similar business transfer that involves substantially all of our assets or functions where personal information is transferred or shared as part of the business assets (provided that such party agrees to use such personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Notice).
