When using our Products, we obviously have to collect information from you, such as first and last name, email, and login ID. We also may retain information on your behalf, such as files, messages, discussion posts and comments that you store using your account. We don’t do this for our own use, we do this to serve our clients and their goals and we will never use this information for any other reason.
If you provide us feedback or contact us via email outside of the use of our Products, we will collect your name and email address, as well as any other content included in the email. We also collect other types of personal information and demographic information that you provide to us voluntarily.
We make no claim of ownership of any of the data you provide us through the use of our Products. Ownership is always deferred to the client and their data ownership policies.
These are small pieces of information that a website sends to your device while you are viewing a website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience in our Products. In addition to the cookies that our Products use, several of the AWS services our Products rely on may themselves use their own set of cookies. Finally, cookies may be added from other web services as part of the content created within a discussion. For example, if a user accesses a discussion containing an embedded YouTube video, cookies for youtube.com would be added.
