1. WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

The personal information you disclose to us

We collect personal information that you provide to us such as name, address, contact information, passwords and security data, and payment information.

We will activate a forum where users after registration can discuss a software (eg Usability, problems, support,). NotifyMe moderates the forum and the questions and answers will be visible to all users. We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us when registering at the Sites expressing an interest in obtaining information about us or our products and services when participating in activities on the Sites (such as posting messages in our online forums or entering competitions, contests or giveaways) or otherwise contacting us. The personal information that we collect depends on the context of your interactions with us and the Sites, the choices you make and the products and features you use. The personal information we collect may include the following:

Name and Contact Data.  We collect your first and last name, email address, postal address, phone number, and other similar contact data. Information and documents used by the user to work using NotifyMe can be entered manually or automatically via API (application program interface).

Information and content you provide.  The Service allows you to upload or input information, text, files, and other materials (together, the “Content”). We collect the content, communications and other information you provide when you use our Product, including when you sign up for an account, create or share content, and message or communicate with others. This can include information in or about the content you provide (like metadata), such as the location of a photo or the date a file was created. If you are using the Services in connection with an account created by a NotifyMe Customer (e.g., employer, organization, or an individual), we collect and process the Content you submit on behalf of the Customer. As described more throughout this Policy, our Customers, and not NotifyMe, determine their own policies regarding storage, access, modification, deletion, sharing, and retention of Content which may apply to your use of the Services. For example, a Customer may provide or remove access to the Service, manage permissions, assign teams or share projects. Please check with the Customer about the policies and settings that they have instituted with respect the Project data that you provide when using the Service.

 

Things others do and information they provide about you. We also receive and analyse content, communications and information that other people provide when they use our Product. This can include information about you, such as when others send a message to you, or upload, sync or import your contact information. We require each of these users and businesses to have lawful rights to collect, use, and share your information before providing any information to us.

Information we collect from Third-Party Integrations. If you choose to use third-party integrations through the Services or are required to do so by a Customer, such providers may allow us and our service providers to have access to and store additional information about your interaction with those services and platforms as it related to use of the Services. If you do not wish to have this information shared, do not initiate these connections.

 

Information we collect from affiliates and non-affiliated Third Parties. NotifyMe may receive additional information about you, such as demographic information, from affiliates under common ownership and control, and from third parties, such as business partners, marketers, researchers, analysts, and other parties that we may use to supplement the information that we collect directly from you.

 

Networks and connections. We collect information about people, projects and accounts you are connected to and how you interact with them across our Product, such as people you communicate with the most or groups you are part of.

Credentials.  We collect passwords, password hints, and similar security information used for authentication and account access.

Payment Data. We collect data necessary to process your payment if you make purchases, such as your payment instrument number (such as a credit card number), and the security code associated with your payment instrument. All payment data is stored by our payment processor and you should review its privacy policies and contact the payment processor directly to respond to your questions.

All personal information that you provide to us must be true, complete and accurate, and you must notify us of any changes to such personal information.

We automatically collect certain information when you visit, use or navigate the Sites.

7. HOW DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE?

We aim to protect your personal information through a system of organisational and technical security measures.

We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, the transmission of personal information to and from our Sites is at your own risk. You should only access the services within a secure environment.

Below, you can read an overview of our security model as well as mechanisms and processes we have implemented to help ensure that your data is protected. If you have any questions about security on our Services, you can contact us at support@notifyme.tech.

  • Encrypted Traffic. Access to your data on our Services is password-protected, protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and the Services. As We use 3rd party services for processing future payments, your financial information and data such as credit card information will be stored in encrypted form on secure servers of our reputed Payment Gateway Service Provider.To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails and similar means of communication with other Members are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
  • Secure Physical Location. Our datacenters are hosted in some of the most secure facilities available today in locations that are protected from physical and logical attacks as well as from reasonable natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires, floods, etc.
  • Availability. We are committed to making NotifyMe’ software a highly available service that you can always count on. We take measures and build the product to tolerate a failure of individual components and we make sure to keep the service up while doing maintenance work on our infrastructure.
  • Data Protection. We know the data you share in NotifyMe software is private and confidential. We limit access to customer data to only a select few of our employees with the highest clearance. Employee access is logged and passwords are strictly regulated and we are committed to ensuring that your data is never seen by anyone who should not see it. With that said, the operation of NotifyMe’ software wouldn’t be possible without a few members having access to our databases in order to optimize performance and storage. This team is prohibited from using these permissions to view customer data without explicit, written permission from the user. You are responsible for maintaining backups of your data present on the space made available by the Service; you may download such data at any time following the procedures for data backup.

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practise in a revised version of this Privacy Policy.

10. DO WE MAKE UPDATES TO THIS POLICY?   

Yes, we will update this policy as necessary to stay compliant with relevant laws.

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by an updated “Revised” date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible.
