It also describes your choices regarding use, access and correction of your personal information. The use of information collected through our service shall be limited to the purpose of providing the service for which the Client has engaged Datanyze.

EU-U.S. and Swiss – U.S. Privacy Shield

Personal identification information

We may collect personal identification information from Users in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when Users visit our website, register on the website, place an order, subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available on our Site. Users may be asked for, as appropriate, name, email address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information. Users may, however, visit our Site anonymously. We will collect personal identification information from Users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information, however that may prevent them from engaging in certain Site related activities.

Passive Collection
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our site (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer the site. For users that have our Browser Extension installed, we may collect technology information as users visit a website. Users can opt out of this at any time from their Settings page.

User Data Supplementation
We may receive information about you from other sources, including publicly available databases, third parties from whom we have purchased data, the Datanyze Exchange Service, or through the Browser Extension, and combine this data with information we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and provide products and services that may be of interest to you. If you provide us personal information about others, or if others give us your information, we will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us.

Examples of the types of personal information that may be obtained from public sources or purchased from third parties and combined with information we already have about you, may include:

We may use this information to:

Collection of Data for Business Contact Database
We collect and organize data about employees from Users and make this data available for end users’ internal business purposes (the “Business Contact Database”). The Business Contact Database is identified on the Site, for logged in Users, through the “People” tab.” We gather such data through a number of sources, including through the Browser Extension, the Datanyze Exchange Service (as described below), and from third parties.

One method by which Datanyze users may obtain access to the Business Contact Database is by participating in the Datanyze Exchange Service. The Datanyze Exchange Service (the “Exchange Service”) is a service provided by Datanyze that provides users access to the Business Contact Database in exchange for the user providing Datanyze access to certain user contact information, as described below. To begin using the Exchange Service, you must first install our proprietary software application (the “Software”) or otherwise provide us with access to your email account. Doing so provides us with access to certain contact information (“Contact Information”) stored by your Gmail and Google account. The Contact Information may be included in or combined with information included in the Business Contact Database. In order to access the Exchange Service, you may be required to provide us OAuth access to your Google account. We collect the following Contact Information from your Google contacts and email headers and “signatures” within email messages (including your own signature within email messages), if available:

We take the following steps to ensure the integrity of the Contact Information and Services:

Datanyze does not “read” the content of your email messages; our technology automatically extracts from the messages only the data we describe in this Privacy Policy. We do not collect data from custom fields or notes in your email client.

Contact Information from your email client will continue to be shared as described above as long as the Software remains installed. If you choose to stop sharing Contact Information from your email client with Datanyze, you can uninstall the Software at any time. You may not, however, retroactively “unshare” the Contact Information you have already shared with Datanyze. Only the individual contacts themselves can request to have their information removed.

Please note that because users agree to provide us with Contact Information voluntarily, such information does not constitute “harvested” emails under the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.

Datanyze collects information under the direction of its Clients, and in some cases has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. If you are a customer of one of our Clients and would no longer like to be contacted by one of our Clients that use our service, please contact the Client that you interact with directly. We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our Clients.

An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should direct his query to the Datanyze’s Client (the data controller). If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.

We will retain personal data we process on behalf of our Clients for as long as needed to provide services to our Client. Datanyze will retain this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
