WEBSITE VISITORS AND APPLICATION USERS
Like most website operators, Elation collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available to website operators, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Elation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Elation’s visitors use its website and smart device applications. From time to time, Elation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website and smart device applications.
Elation also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users providing feedback or requesting support. Elation only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Elation’s websites and smart phone applications choose to interact with Elation in ways that require Elation to gather and share personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Elation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who sign up for Edagio to provide a username, password and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Elation – by purchasing a site license, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions.
There are users that will sign into Elation’s websites and smart phone applications using third party authentication (oAuth ). When using such authentication, personal profile information is shared with the host of a presentation. Users may elect to keep their personal profile information private, and doing so may prevent their use of some features of Elation websites and smart device applications.
Elation collects personally-identifying information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Elation and the specific user communities the user chooses to become a member of . Elation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below and visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website or smart device application related activities.
Elation may collect and share publicly aggregated statistics about the number and behavior of visitors to its websites and users of its smart device applications. Elation may also supply publicly the number of users belonging to a particular group, the number of downloads of an application, usage information, content viewing information, voting information related to content and inactivity information. However, Elation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Elation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Elation’s behalf or to provide services available at Elation’s websites or within Elation’s smart device applications, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others except as necessary to fulfill their obligations to us and then only under the same conditions as they have agreed to with us . Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Elation’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Elation will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Elation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental mandate, or when Elation believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Elation, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Elation website or smart device application and have supplied your email address, Elation may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Elation and our products. We primarily use our various products, websites and smart phone applications to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Elation takes all measures commercially reasonable necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Elation, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Elation goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that could be transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Elation may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
