  1. INFORMATION COLLECTION

Personal Information We May Collect

SmartOrg may collect various types of personal information, including:

  • Personal and business contact information (such as full name, phone number, email address, organization, password)
  • Depending on the service we are providing to you we may also need to collect more sensitive personal information (such as photographs, audio/video recordings, images) directly from you. These will primarily be used to create training modules for the work that we need to support.

If you submit any personal information about other people to us or to our service providers, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use their personal information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

We and our service providers may collect personal information from a variety of sources, including:

  • From you or someone acting on your behalf: We may collect personal information you or someone acting on your behalf shares with us such as your name and contact details.
  • Through SmartOrg’s Services: We may collect personal information about you when you use PN, or sign up on our blog. For example, when you sign up for our newsletter ValuePoint or use PN.
  • Through Third Parties’ Services: We do not pass on your personal information to any third-party services.

Other Information We May Collect

SmartOrg may also collect other information from your app, browser, or device that does not reveal your (or anyone else’s) real world identity, for example:

  • Browser and device information
  • App or device usage data
  • Information collected through cookies, pixel tags, and similar technologies
  • IP address
  • Location data
  • Aggregated, anonymized, or de-identified information
  • Demographic information and other information provided by you (i.e., language, occupation, postal code).

We and our third-party service providers may collect this information in a variety of ways, including:

  • Through your browser or device: Most browsers and devices collect certain information automatically, for example, type and version of operating system, screen resolution, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version, and the name and version of the application (of PN) that you are using. We use this information, for example, to make sure that the SmartOrg Services function properly, analyze the performance of our products, and improve and maintain the SmartOrg Services.
  • Through cookies and similar technologies: We use cookies to store PN’s authentication information, help create short links to reports, and help PN work more efficiently.
  • IP Address: IP addresses are automatically transmitted as part of any Internet communication, and collecting IP addresses is a common practice; many web sites, applications and PN collect IP addresses automatically. We use IP addresses for purposes such as communicating with your device, calculating usage levels of PN, helping diagnose server problems, security, and administering the SmartOrg Services.

  1. THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

This Privacy Notice does not address, and we are not responsible for, the policies and practices of third parties or other organizations that are not SmartOrg service providers, including policies and practices related to privacy and security, data collection, processing, use, storage, and disclosure. This includes: (a) any third party operating any site or service to which the SmartOrg Services (including PN) link – the inclusion of a link on the SmartOrg Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates; or (b) any app developer, app provider, social media platform provider, operating system provider, wireless service provider or device manufacturer (such as Facebook, Apple, Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, etc.) – including any personal information you disclose to other organizations through or in connection with the SmartOrg Services or our Social Media Pages.

When we share personal information with an SmartOrg service provider, we require that they first contractually agree to comply with reasonable and appropriate privacy and security standards.

  1. SECURITY

The SmartOrg Services are designed to provide reasonable and appropriate organizational, technical, and administrative measures to protect personal information within our organization against unauthorized or unlawful access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. Users of SmartOrg Services must also do their part in protecting the data, systems, networks, and service they are utilizing. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that your password to any SmartOrg account has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.

  1. HOW YOU CAN MANAGE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

  1. RETENTION PERIOD

We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.
