Our Collection and Use of Information
Information You Provide to Us
We collect certain personal information, such as your name and email address, when you register for an account for the Service on our Website. Your user name, email address, other information required by our registration and onboarding process on the Website and any optional profile information that you elect to associate with your account with us is referred to herein as your “Profile Information.”
We will utilize a third party credit card payment processing company to collect payment information, including your credit card number, billing address and phone number. We will share this payment information with the third party processing company as detailed below in “How We Share Your Information: With Trusted Service Providers and Business Partners.” We do not store your payment information.
We may use your email address to send you Service-related notices (including any notices required by law, in lieu of communication by postal mail). We may also use your email address to send you announcements and information about other products or services (including third party services) that you may be interested in (together, the “Marketing Messages”). You may opt-out of receiving Marketing Messages at any time by following the instructions provided in the Marketing Message. Through your account interface, you may also opt-out of receiving categories of Service-related notices that are not deemed by Factual Soft to be integral to your use of the Service.
Even if you are not a registered user of our Website or a subscriber to the Service, if you email us or contact us through the Website we may retain a record of such email communication, including your email address, the content of your email, and our response.
If you choose to use our invitation service to invite a friend to the Service, we will ask you for that person’s contact information, which may include their email address or their social network identity, and automatically send an invitation. Factual Soft stores the information you provide to send the invitation, to register your friend if your invitation is accepted, and to track the success of our invitation service.
Your Business Data
If you subscribe to or purchase a software license for the Service, your use of the Service will involve you uploading or inputting various data and content into the Service for your own business purposes (together, the “Business Data”). The Business Data may contain personal information of other individuals, such as your own employees, business partners, customers or other third persons held in your systems or databases, that you or your consultants and other independent contractors wish to process through the Service.
You, as our customer, control how your Business Data is shared with others once you obtain the output provided by the Service. When providing the Service, Factual Soft only processes metadata contained in your Business Data on your behalf of and in accordance with your instructions as a customer of Factual Soft. Our Service contains automated processes and workflows and other software that generally allow customers to control how they process the Business Data they choose to input into the Service, and we do not typically control these processes or store such data or content other than as may be necessary to provide the Service. Business Data uploaded through the Service is stored only temporarily and is automatically deleted upon the completion of an online session. The Terms of Service for cloud-based software services and the End User License Agreement for the desktop software between Factual Soft and its customers define specific roles and responsibilities of the parties for the processing of Business Data in the context of the Service.
Factual Soft may retrieve, view, analyze, copy and display your Business Data only as necessary (i) to maintain, provide and improve the Service; (ii) to resolve a support request from you; (iii) if we have a good faith belief, or have received a complaint alleging, that such Business Data is in violation of our Acceptable Use Policies; (iv) as reasonably necessary to allow Factual Soft to comply with or avoid the violation of applicable law or regulation; or (v) to comply with a valid legal subpoena or request. We may also analyze the Business Data in aggregate and on an anonymized basis, in order to better understand the manner in which our Service is being used. We do not store your Business Data permanently and do not perform backups of your Business Data but may have access to it as the Business Data passes through our systems and our partners’ servers and networks as we provide the Service to our customers.
Information We Collect Automatically
When you use the Service, our servers automatically record certain information in server logs. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type and settings, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile carrier, date and time stamp information and other such information. Log files help us to monitor, analyze, improve and maintain the Service and to diagnose and fix any Service-related issues.
When you access the Service using a mobile device or your desktop computer, we collect specific device information contained in your mobile device’s or computer’s “device identifier.” This device identifier includes information such as the type of device you are using, its operating system, and, with respect to mobile devices, mobile network information, which may include your mobile phone number. We may associate this device identifier with your Service account and will use data associated with your device identifier to customize our Services to your device and to analyze any device-related issues.
We may collect and process information about the location of the device from which you are accessing the Service. Location data may convey information about how you browse the Website or use the Service and may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information.
Information we obtain from other sources
Where permitted by applicable law, we may collect and use information about you from other sources, including through interactive applications (e.g., mobile devices, third party services, and embedded audio and video players), from co-branded partners and websites (e.g., on our social media pages), and from commercially available sources (e.g., data aggregators and public databases).
Please note that all of the information we collect about you may be combined, including to help us tailor our communications to you and to develop and improve our services on the Website and within our Service.
We do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information about online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance.

How We Protect Your Information
The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) as part of our service, we arrange for the transmission of that information to be encrypted using industry-standard encryption.
Factual Soft uses commercially reasonable and industry-standard physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your information. For example, we guard against common web attack vectors, host data in secure Amazon Web Services, and implement firewalls and access restrictions on our servers to secure our network and better protect your information.
If you have any questions about security on our Service, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Risks Inherent in Sharing Information
Although we allow you control over where you share your Business Data and what information is included in your Profile Information and take reasonable steps to maintain the security if the information associated with your account, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of others with whom you share your Business Data and we are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures within the Service.

Factual Soft does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for an account on the Website. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information.
