OUR PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
OUR PRIVACY PRINCIPLES
If you read nothing else, please read this:
This policy describes how BizPortals treats your information, not how other organizations treat your information. If you are using BizPortals in a workplace or on a device or account issued to you by your employer or another organization, that company or organization likely has its own policies regarding storage, access, modification, deletion, and retention of communications and content which may apply to your use of BizPortals. Content that would otherwise be considered private to you or to a limited group of people may, in some cases, be accessible by your administrator. Please check with your employer or administrator about the policies it has in place regarding your communications and related content on BizPortals. More on this below.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND RECEIVE
We collect different kinds of information. Some of it is personally identifiable and some is non-identifying or aggregated. Here are the types of information we collect or receive:
Company information When you create a company on BizPortals, we collect your email address (as the administrator), your team name, your user name that appears in your BizPortals company, and password.
Account and profile information
The only information we require to create your BizPortals account is your first and last name, an email address and password. Any optional information you add to your profile is visible to other people in your company as described on your user profile page.
When you use BizPortals, our servers automatically record information including information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the web page you visited before coming to BizPortals, your browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, information about your browser configuration and plug-ins, language preferences, and cookie data.
In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using BizPortals on, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings.
Precise GPS from mobile devices is collected only with your permission. WiFi and IP addresses received from your browser or device may be used to determine approximate location.
BizPortals usage information
This is information about which teams, groups, people, features, content, and links you interact with within BizPortals and what integrations with related services you use.
If you integrate with a service on BizPortals we will connect that service to ours.
Communication content that you send and receive within BizPortals
Information from partners or other 3rd parties
BizPortals may receive information from partners or others that we could use to make our own information better or more useful. This might be aggregate level information about which IP addresses go with which zip codes or it might be more specific information about how well an online marketing or email campaign performed.
Some cookies are associated with your BizPortals account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in and which teams you are logged into. Other cookies are not tied to your BizPortals account but are unique and allow us to do site analytics and customization, among other things. If you access BizPortals through your browser, you can manage your cookie settings there but if you disable all cookies you may not be able to use BizPortals.
BizPortals sets and accesses our own cookies on our company-owned domains.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We use your information for the following:
Providing the BizPortals service
We use information you provide to authenticate you and deliver content to you and from you.
Understanding and improving our products
To make the product better we have to understand how users are using it. We have a fair bit of data about usage and we intend to use it many different ways to improve our products, including research. This policy is not intended to place any limits on what we do with usage data that is aggregated or de-identified so it is no longer tied to a BizPortals user.
Investigating and preventing bad stuff from happening
We work hard to keep BizPortals secure and to prevent abuse and fraud.
Communicating with you
When you use BizPortals, you have control over a number of things with respect to your own privacy and choices about how your content is visible to others or not. If you are a BizPortals company administrator, you have additional choices that impact your team’s privacy. Some users will not have access to all of the same choices that their department or group owner(s) or administrator(s) do. That is because BizPortals is set up to be team-oriented, and provides administrators and owners with the maximum ability to control their teams. Such choices include message retention and export options.
Sharing and Disclosure
There are times when communications and related content and other user information may be shared by BizPortals. This section discusses only how BizPortals may share user information. Organizations that use BizPortals may have their own policies for sharing and disclosure of information they can access through BizPortals. BizPortals may share information:
With consent, to comply with legal process, or to protect BizPortals and our users
When we have your consent or if we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or BizPortals; or to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues. If we receive a legal or law enforcement request for information we will do our best to notify the subject of the request if we are able.
With third parties and agents
About you with your organization or team administrator(s)
In the event of a merger or sale
That is aggregated and non-identifiable
We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners or others for business or research purposes.
BizPortals takes reasonable steps to protect information you provide to us as part of your use of the BizPortals service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. When you enter sensitive information (such as sign-in credentials) we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no electronic or email transmission or digital storage mechanism is ever fully secure or error free.
BizPortals is not directed to children under 13. If you learn that a minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us.
We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use BizPortals after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are material, we may provide more prominent notice or seek your consent to the new policy.
