We collect two types of information about you and your Users: (1) personally-identifiable information provided by you directly to us or to Cloud Service Providers as well as information we learn about you from your use of our services and the Marketplace; and (2) information we collect by virtue of web analytics that allows us to understand and optimise the operation of the Marketplace, which cannot be used to identify you (please see the “Cookies” section below).
We collect personally-identifiable information about you only when you specifically give it to us. We may also collect information relating to the transactions you carry out, including details of any payment cards you use. We do not generally disclose this information to third parties except in the circumstances set out in Clause 10.6 below.
We may send marketing information to you in relation to promotions that we run from time to time or service offerings we consider may be of interest to you. You can ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes by checking certain boxes on the forms used to collect your information or by updating your marketing preferences in your User Account. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at the following address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cloud Service Providers will not be permitted to market to you directly in connection with other services they offer. In the event that you receive any such marketing communication that you have not specifically requested you should let us know immediately.
The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. We will do our best to protect your personal information while it is in our possession, however, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted online or over the Marketplace.
We recognise industry standards and employ security safeguards to protect personally identifiable information from unauthorised access and misuse.
