4. The Information We Collect
We collect both personally-identifiable information or personal data and non-personally-identifiable information from you. Often, you choose what information to provide to us, but, sometimes, we may require certain information for you to use and for us to provide the Services.
Registration & Account Set Up. In order to register you as a Customer and set up an account, we will collect personal data, which may include your full name; telephone number; tax identification information; address; and email address. You are not required to provide us with this information to sign up, but we will need it to provide certain services. For example, in order to provide a demo we would need your contact information. In order to sign you as a Customer, we would need your corporate details and invoicing information and the contact information for your account administrators.
In instances where a User creates an anonymous user profile via the website, a pseudonym is generated. In such an instance, specific Users are not tied to the account and no personal data is collected unless provided by User.
We do not collect any financial information, such as credit card numbers or billing information as all such data is processed by our data processors, currently Stripe and Quaderno, and may be subject to such third parties’ own Privacy Policies, available at https://stripe.com/privacy and https://quaderno.io/privacy/, respectively.
Automated Information. Monsido automatically receives and records information from your browser or your mobile device when you visit the Site or use certain other Services, such as your IP address or unique device identifier, cookies and data about which pages you visit in order to allow us to operate and provide the Services. This information is stored in log files and is collected automatically. We may combine this information from your browser or your mobile device with other information that we or our partners collect about you, including across devices. This information is used to prevent fraud and to keep the Services secure, to analyze and understand how the Services work for members and visitors, and to provide advertising, including across your devices, and more personalized experience for members and visitors.
Location Information: We may collect information about your use of the Services for advertising, analytics, to serve content and to protect the Services, including your IP address, browser information (including referrers), device information (such as iOS IDFA, IDFV for limited non-advertising purposes, Android AAID, and, when enabled by you, location information provided by your device). We may obtain location information you provide in your profile or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features and to improve and customize the Services, for example, for Monsido’s internal analytics and performance monitoring; localization, regional requirements, and policies for the Services; for local content, search results, and recommendations; for mapping services; and (using non-precise location information) marketing. Certain non-precise location services, such as for security and localized policies based on your IP address or submitted address, are critical for the site to function. We will only share your geo-location details with third parties (like our mapping, payments, or, to the extent applicable, advertising providers) in order to provide you with the Services.
Analytics Information: We use data analytics to ensure site functionality and improve the Services. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any personally identifiable information that you submit.
Scan Caches. For Customers, we also collect and cache copies of all Customer website pages crawled by our software, which includes all publicly-available pages. We do not intentionally collect nor are any part of our Services to be used by Customer for the scanning of private pages of the Customer’s intranet, where the same may contain personally-identifiable information related to employees, contractors, officers, directors, agents, customers and clients of Customer.
5. Use of Your Information and Your Preferences
We may use your personally identifiable information to process transactions and process contracts; to provide customer service administration; to contact you via e-mail or telephone; to respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions; to send company news, updates and other related info via our mailing list; to facilitate registration for our Services; and to provide technical support.
We may use your non-personally identifiable information to create traffic statistics for our website; to create User statistics for our Services; to improve customer service, and to personalize your user experience.

Some of these messages are required, service-related messages for members (such as transactional messages or legal notices). Other messages are not required, such as newsletters. You can control which optional messages you choose to receive via the unsubscribe link in our emails.
If you no longer wish to use the Services or receive service-related messages (except for legally required notices), then you may close your account as set forth in the termination provision of your Terms of Service, or by contacting us at email@example.com.

7. Do Not Track (DNT) Disclosure
8. Disclosures of your Information
Your information may be used by us for the purposes provided herein. We may pass your information on to third parties designated by you, our third-party service providers and affiliates, our successors and assigns, and our subsidiaries and parent companies, if applicable. Crawled data and statistics data are not shared with any third parties except as set forth herein. We may also disclose your data if necessary in the public interest or necessary to protect your vital interests or those of others.

These third parties have only limited access to your information, may use your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf, and are obligated to Monsido not to disclose or use your information for other purposes. Our engagement of service providers is often necessary for us to provide the Services to you, particularly where such companies play important roles like processing payments and shipments and helping us keep our Service operating and secure. In some other cases, these service providers aren’t strictly necessary for us to provide the Services, but help us make it better, like by helping us conduct research into how we could better serve our users. In these latter cases, we have a legitimate interest in working with service providers to make our Services better.
9. Legal Disclaimer
In addition to the foregoing disclosures contained in Section 7, we reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Services, General Website Terms and Conditions, Cookies Policy and other policies, or as otherwise required by law.

In addition, please be aware that your ability to opt-out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of the website and/or the Services.
13. Privacy Protection for Children Using the Internet;
Notice to Minors
Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information of those persons we actually know are under the age of thirteen (13) nor is any part of the website or our Services targeted to attract anyone under the age of thirteen (13). We request that all users of the website and our Services who are under the age of thirteen (13) not disclose or provide any personally identifiable information. If we discover that a child under thirteen (13) has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete that child’s personally identifiable information from our records. You are responsible for any and all account activity conducted by a minor under your account.
In addition to protecting the privacy of children under age the age of thirteen (13), we are committed to protecting the privacy of minors. Though neither our website nor our Services are targeted to minors, nor is it intended to be used by minors, if for any reason a minor has shared information via our website and/or Services, said minor may request and obtain removal of such information by contacting us at email@example.com. Although we offer deletion capability, you should be aware that the removal of content may not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of that content or information provided.
Monsido will retain your information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this policy, for as long as your account is active (i.e., for the lifetime of your Monsido account), as described in this policy, or as needed to provide the Services to you. If you no longer want Monsido to use your information to provide the Services to you, you may close your account. Monsido will retain and use your information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your information to comply with applicable tax/revenue laws), resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and as otherwise described in this policy. We also retain log files for internal analysis purposes. These log files are generally retained for a brief period of time, except in cases where they are used for site safety and security, to improve site functionality, or we are legally obligated to retain them for longer time periods. In terms of personal data collected for the purposes of recruitment and employment, we will retain your information for up to 6 months. Any personal data that we do hold onto will be anonymous.
15. Data Security
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally-identifiable information that we collect, including limiting access to your personally identifiable information to those persons with your username and password; however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Thus, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk. Please note that non-encrypted communication using email is not secure. Thus, we cannot guarantee data security in email communication and, therefore, recommend using physical mail for confidential information. Please note that though we may use TLS, HTTPS or similar data security features, such data security features may not be available on all portions of the website and the Services.
16. International Transfer
The United States, European Economic Area (“EEA”) Member States, and other countries all have different laws. When your information is moved from your home country to another country, the laws and rules that protect your personal information in the country to which your information is transferred may be different from those in the country in which you live. For example, the circumstances in which law enforcement can access personal information may vary from country to country. In particular, if your information is in the US, it may be accessed by government authorities in accordance with US law.
To the extent that Monsido is deemed to transfer personal information outside of the EEA, we rely separately, alternatively, and independently on the following legal bases to transfer your information:
Model Clauses. The European Commission has adopted standard contractual clauses (also known as Model Clauses), which provide safeguards for personal information that is transferred outside of Europe. We often use these Model Clauses when transferring personal information outside of Europe. You can request a copy of our Model Clauses by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Privacy Shield. Monsido, Inc. does not participate in Privacy Shield at this time. However, Monsido ApS may rely on the EU-US Privacy Shield to transfer personal information to some of our third-party service providers in the United States, where they are certified to receive such information under the Privacy Shield Program.
Necessary for the performance of the contract. Monsido provides a voluntary service; you can choose whether or not you want to use the Services. However, if you want to use the Services, you need to agree to our Terms of Service which set out the contract between Monsido and its Customers. As we operate in countries worldwide (including in the United States) and may use technical infrastructure in the United States to deliver the Services to you, in accordance with the contract between us, we need to transfer your personal information to the United States and to other jurisdictions as necessary to provide the Services. Simply put, we can’t provide you with the Services and perform our contract with you without moving your personal information around the world.
17. Your Rights
You may benefit from a number of rights in relation to your information that we process. Some rights apply only in certain limited cases, depending on your location. If you would like to manage, change, limit, or delete your personal information, you can do so via your Monsido account settings or by contacting us. Upon request, Monsido will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information.

In certain circumstances, you also have the right to request the deletion of your personal information, and to obtain a copy of your personal information in an easily accessible format. If you need further assistance, you can contact Monsido through one of the channels listed below under “How to Contact Us.” We will respond to your request Monsido a reasonable timeframe.
If we process your information based on our legitimate interests as explained above, or in the public interest, you can object to this processing in certain circumstances.
