Because you deserve a secure environment
Your information privacy is important to us.
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users. We will only collect your personal information from you (i.e. not from any other person or source) by lawful and fair means and not in an unreasonably intrusive way. Maintaining the privacy of your information is of great significance to us. Users who register are assumed to provide contact information, such as name, company name, company address, phone number, e-mail address, billing details, and the number of users within the organization that will be using our Services. We may also ask for additional information, such as job title or additional company information.
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States’ consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. Our Website, products and Services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
