Examples of the types of information we may collect include: your name, street address, phone or fax number, e‐mail address, and credit card or bank account information.

We may use your e‐mail address and other personally identifiable information to send you service notifications about your account, about the services you currently use, if any, and concerning changes to our Privacy Policy, Acceptable Use Policy, Site(s) Terms of Use, or other legal or policy matters.

If you have given us permission, we may use your e‐mail address and other personally identifiable information to provide you with information about products and services we believe may be of interest to you, and our third-party service providers may access your information in order to assist with the foregoing. However, we do not sell or otherwise provide your information to third parties for their marketing purposes. We also collect non‐personally identifiable information, including information about the way in which our Sites are used. This non‐personally identifiable information includes information stored in the log files for our Sites. We may use this information to improve and tailor the content of our Sites, and we may share this information with others, including our partners, customers, and prospective customers.

Software

In the case where our Software is installed on a customer’s servers and managed by that customer, we do not receive or otherwise have access to the information collected by the Software, and collection and use of that information will be governed by such customer’s privacy policy. However, in certain cases (such as proofs of concept, emergency implementations and beta trials), we may host the Software that you access and use. In these cases, certain information may be transmitted to and through our servers from the Software during the use of the Software by end users. This information may include your user id and data collected by the Software, such as biotelemetry data. We do not require that any personally identifiable information be transmitted in this manner. In the event that you include personally identifiable information (such as, for example, by using your full name as your user id), it is possible that the combined data being transmitted will be personally identifiable to you. You retain control over whether this will be the case, and we do not have a way of telling if this is the case since we do not store this information on our servers (except in the limited circumstances described above) or inspect it. There is also a possibility that this data could be intercepted by a malicious third party. We do not disclose or use data collected when we host the Software for end users except as necessary to provide the features and functionality of the Service to you, and as provided above under our Core Principles.
