We aim to limit our interaction with your data wherever possible. We have a general policy relating to access to your data. We will generally seek only to access that data which is necessary in accordance with the privileges you have granted to the Service. Automated processes may scan your data, but only for an explicit purpose to do with the provision of our Service. When working with data that was originally collected by us, our processes may need to scan and manipulate the information in order to deliver our Service to you.
Ways in which we collect data
We may collect and process the following personal information or data:
- certain information required to use the Service or any other services we offer, including the name and address of you and/or your business and/or your employees and customers;
- customer e-mail addresses and passwords;
- any correspondence between you and us;
- replies to any surveys or questionnaires that we may use for research purposes;
- details of your visits to the Service and the resources that you access;
- any information we may require from you when you report a problem or complaint.
We only collect such information when you choose to supply it to us. You do not have to supply any personal information to us but our Service may not be operable in practice without providing such data to us.
Information may also be gathered through the Service without you actively providing it, through the use of various technologies and methods such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and cookies. These methods do not collect or store personal information.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), so you can access the Internet. It is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address can only be traced back to your ISP or the large company or organization that provides your internet access (such as your employer if you are at work).
We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, and determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to the Service, and to administer and improve the Service.
