By accessing our website at www.techversions.com, including all related pages (“Site”), subscription-based features or services offered by TechVersions through the website or through www.techversions.com/app (collectively, the “Service”), you are accepting the practices outlined in this Statement.
This Statement covers TechVersions collection and use of personal information that TechVersions gathers when you are on the website and when you use the Service.
This Statement does not apply to the practices of third parties that TechVersions does not own or control, or to individuals that TechVersions does not employ or manage.
For the avoidance of doubt, this Statement does not apply to any third party information gathered by TechVersions subscribers (i.e., information about customers of TechVersions subscribers) and submitted by them to the Service for use in connection with their marketing campaigns and other promotional activities (“Customer Data”). TechVersions will not review, share, distribute, print, or refer any such Customer Data except as provided in the Service Agreement or as may be required by law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer Data may at times be viewed or accessed by TechVersions for the purpose of resolving a problem, support issue, or for investigating a suspected violation of the Service Agreement, or as may be required by law. TechVersions adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by the US Department of Commerce (“Safe Harbor Principles”) with respect to Customer Data that we receive from our customers and other business partners in the European Economic Area.
What Personal Information About Customers Does TechVersions Collect?
Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with a friendly, customized, and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
Information You Provide Us:
TechVersions collects identifying information when you use the Service; when you visit the website (including, without limitation, any techversions.com web pages or landing pages); when you enter promotions or contests. For example, we require customers who register to use the Service to give us the following personal information: name, company name, address, phone number, e-mail address, financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, credit card number, and the identity of users within the organization who will be using the Service. When you initially express interest in obtaining additional information about the Service, or when you register for the Service, we may also ask for additional types of personal information, such as title, department name, or additional company information, such as annual revenues or marketing spend. We may also request demographic information and unique identifiers in order to provide you with a more personalized experience or verify your passwords.
All financial and billing information that we collect from you is used for the purposes of checking your qualifications as a prospective customer and billing you for the Service. Such billing information is not used by TechVersions for marketing or promotional purposes. TechVersions may use a third-party intermediary to manage the credit card and billing processing. This intermediary is solely a link in the distribution chain and is not permitted to store, retain, or use the information provided, except for the sole purpose of credit card and billing processing.
If you are a registered user of TechVersions subscription-based Service, please note that some information about you may remain in our records after the end of your trial or subscription.
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us via our website. TechVersions automatically receives and records certain “traffic data” on our server logs including your IP address, TechVersions cookie information, the page you requested, and your communications and interactions with other website registrants. TechVersions uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends, and administer the Service.
We automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our website and use of components of our Service. We may use this information to provide research, advice, and information, including, without limitation, for benchmarking purposes (e.g. We may publish an industry white paper that uses data collected through the use of our Service). This data is only used in the aggregate. This type of collective data also enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Service so we can make the Service appealing to as many customers as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our website and Service. We may share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use areas of our website and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience.
We also collect and use the information for internal purposes. For example, if you are a registered user of TechVersions subscription-based Service, we may keep records in the account history of your complaints about other registered users’ online behavior, and any reported violation of our Service Agreement that you or someone on your account may have committed.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While TechVersions will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from TechVersions if your computer supports this type of program, in order to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. We may also send out e-mails with information regarding TechVersions or our partners including promotions and events. Customers can opt-out of being contacted by us by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a user elects to use our referral features for informing a friend about our website or Service, we ask them for the friend’s name and e-mail address. TechVersions will automatically send the friend an e-mail on behalf of the user who made the referral, inviting such a friend to visit the website and try the Service. TechVersions does not store this information.
Information From Other Sources:
For purposes such as improving personalization of our Service, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
