Personal Data means any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes data such as name, home address, email address and phone number, as well as IP-address and data specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, economic, cultural or social identity of natural persons. Information about a business, such as its name or physical address, is not Personal Data.
When you use our Websites or mobile applications to download a whitepaper, request a trial or ask for any other information, you will be asked to provide contact details which we will then use to deliver the requested information and/or service.
When you contact customer support or speak with a sales representative, we may record the call for training purposes and to improve our service.
If you are using or accessing our Services, whether in connection with a paid subscription, a free trial or purchased service, we may ask for specific information, such as your name, address, e-mail address and phone number for us to be able to perform our obligations under the terms of these Services. In addition, we collect your payment details to be able to process the payment of your subscription fee or purchase price.
As part of our Websites, including applications, and Services, we use various technologies such as "session" and "persistent" cookies (small data files that we transfer to your computer), web beacons (tiny image files on web pages that communicate information about the page viewer to the beacon owner), log data, and third-party analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to collect and analyze information about Visitors, Customers, and Partners. Technology is, by its nature, dynamic and ever-changing; the technological tools used today by Hitech are therefore subject to modification and replacement in the future.
We use "session" cookies to keep you logged in while you use our Services, to better understand how you interact with our Services, and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic information on our Services.
We use "persistent" cookies to recognize you each time you return to our Websites or Services. For example, we create a persistent cookie that includes some basic information about you, like your most recent search. We use this persistent cookie to remember your preferences and, if you create an account, to make your user experience consistent.
Web beacons, tags and scripts may be used on our Websites, our Services, in e-mails or other electronic communications we send to you. These technologies help us in understanding how our Websites and Services are used, what other websites our visitors have visited and when an email is being opened and acted upon so that we can improve our Services.
Our servers automatically record information created by your use of the Websites or Services ("Log Data"). Log Data includes information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, web pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, your computer or mobile device type, search terms and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Websites or Services, for example, when you visit our Websites, sign into our Services, or interact with our email notifications. You may delete or disable certain of these technologies at any time via your browser settings.
In order to provide and improve our Services, we may use and disclose to third parties (for example, our service providers and analytics Partners) non-personally identifiable information which we collect, including cookie data and Log Data. This may include Personal Data which has been aggregated and de-identified in such a way that the data cannot be reidentified. We retain the right to use, at our reasonable discretion, any information, in any form, about more than one individual where the identity of the individuals is not known and cannot be inferred.
When you use any social network sharing function in connection with the Services (for example, sharing on Facebook), your sharing activity will be processed through a third party's site or service. These third-party privacy policies, not ours, govern the collection and use of the information collected on those sites or networks, including Personal Data.
Some parts of our Websites and Services may allow Visitors and Customers to submit and view UGC. UGC includes such things as posting a question, an answer or a blog post. When you post UGC, other Visitors or Customers will be able to see certain information about you, such as your username or handle. You should be aware that any Personal Data you submit in UGC can be read, collected, distributed or used by other Visitors or Customers and could be used by third parties to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personal Data you choose to include in the UGC you provide through the Websites or Services.
If you complete surveys or provide us with feedback in any other form, we may use this information for our own business purposes, including for marketing and to improve our products and Services.
We may release Personal Data when we believe that doing so is appropriate to comply with applicable laws, regulations or legal requests; to enforce or apply our policies and guidelines; to initiate, render, bill, and collect amounts owed to us; to protect our rights or property; to protect the safety of our Customers; to address fraud, security or technical issues; to prevent or stop activity that we consider to be illegal or unethical; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we may also be required to disclose Personal Data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
