Personal Information. We collect both personal information and non-personal information about you. Personal information identifies you or another person as an individual and includes such items as your name and email address. We collect personal information about you only when you voluntarily provide it to us, such as when you send us an email or other communication. You may also permit the App to access personal information by accessing photos, videos or other content on your device. Lastly, certain personal information may be contained within, or accessible through, the URLs (and the content available through such URLs) that you insert into your slide presentations in using the App, and such URLs are provided to us in your use of the App.
IP Addresses. Your IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet service provider. This number is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever users visit the Site, along with the time(s) of such visit(s) and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many web sites. Please note that we treat IP Addresses, server log files and related information as non-personal information, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law.
Tracking By Us and Third Parties. We honor do-not-track signals, and we do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a do-not-track browser mechanism that we recognize is in place. We also do not allow third party behavioral tracking.
Personal Information. We may use your personal information in the following ways:
Personal Information. We may disclose your personal information:
Non-Personal Information. Because non-personal information does not identify you in any way, we may share non-personal information with any third party for any purpose.
Safe Harbor Certifications. Poll Everywhere is certified under the U.S.-EU and U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor privacy framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce, European Commission and Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner of Switzerland regarding the collection, storage, use, transfer and other processing of personal information transferred from the European Union member countries and Switzerland to the U.S. (“Safe Harbor Requirements”). Poll Everywhere has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. Please visit our Safe Harbor Privacy Notice.
Protecting Your Information. We use commercially reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit or provide to us or guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, administrative and/or technical safeguards. Additionally, we will not be responsible or liable to you for third party circumvention of our security measures.
Opting Out of Receiving Communications From Us. You may opt out from receiving marketing-related emails or other communications from us on a going-forward basis by contacting us in accordance with the “Contacting Us” section below. We will try to comply with your opt-out request as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that if you opt out as described above, this will apply to marketing messages from us only. We will not be able to remove your personal information from the database of any third parties to whom you have previously authorized us to share such information (i.e., to which we have already provided your personal information as of the date that we implement your opt-out request). Please also note that if you do opt-out of receiving marketing-related messages from us, we may still send you important administrative messages, and you cannot opt-out from receiving administrative messages.
Children’s Privacy. Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important to us. The Services and Site are not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13), and we request that these individuals do not provide any personal information to us. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) unless we first obtain permission from that child’s parent or legal guardian. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without permission from that child’s parent or legal guardian, we will take steps to remove that information.
Storage of Personal Information. We may store and back-up personal information within databases located within the U.S., and in some cases, outside the U.S.
Jurisdictional Issues. We do not represent or warrant that the Site, App, Services or any part thereof is appropriate or available for use in any particular jurisdiction. Those who choose to access any component of the Services do so on their own initiative and at their own risk, and are responsible for complying with all local laws, rules and regulations. By providing personal information through the Site, App and/or other components of the Services, you consent to the transfer of personal information to other countries, such as the United States, which may provide a different level of data security than in your country of residence, except as prohibited by the Safe Harbor Requirements.
