Waypoint Software Privacy Policy

Effective Date: 7/22/2015

Waypoint Software, LLC, (the “Company”) collects certain information through our proprietary-hosted software (the “Services”). The Services facilitate real-time distribution of the collected information of other companies (“Clients”) when the Clients post this information directly into the Services. Collectively, the Company and the Clients are referred to as “we,” “us,” and “our” because the Company and the Clients are both bound by this Privacy Policy to protect your privacy. We adhere to the Safe Harbor Agreement concerning transfer of personal data from the European Union to the United States. Accordingly, we follow the Safe Harbor Principles (http://www.export.gov/safeharbor) published by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the “Principles”) with respect to all such data. If there is any conflict between the policies in this Privacy Policy and the Principles, the Principles will govern. This Privacy Policy outlines our general policy and practices for implementing the Principles, including the types of information we gather, how we use the information, and the notice and choice you have regarding our use of and your ability to correct that information. This Privacy Policy applies to all personal information received by us whether in electronic, paper, or verbal format.

Description of Services

The Company provides Services to facilitate a business’s sharing of collected data with potential service providers or other companies who wish to buy specific types of lead data. This Privacy Policy governs the types of data collected, the method in which it is collected, and how it is used. This Privacy Policy is only applicable to our Clients (i.e., operators of websites that post data directly to our Services for distribution in real time).

Our Services allow Clients to create filters and use other analytics to control how the data they collect is distributed. The Services use this pre-determined criteria to target potential service providers and buyers and to send the data out to only those leads. Intelligence is built into the Services to determine whether or not the transmitted data actually fits the criteria and is applicable to the targets. This determination is made almost immediately.

Once this data validation is complete and successful, the Services send this validated data out to the service provider or buyer and the transaction can be completed.

 

Client Requirements and Restrictions 

All new clients must agree to comply with the Company’s Terms and Conditions. In accordance with the Terms and Conditions, Clients are bound by the following requirements and restrictions:

  1. Clients shall adhere to the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003.
    1. If the Client’s domain is listed on Spamhaus’ Blocklist, the Client must take reasonable efforts to work with Spamhaus to have the domain removed. If the Client is unsuccessful in its efforts to have the domain removed from the Blocklist, the Company will work with the Client and Spamhaus to try to resolve the issue. If this effort to remove the Client’s domain from the Blocklist is also unsuccessful, the Client must remove itself from the Services within fourteen (14) business days after written notice from the Company. If the Client does not remove itself as required, the Company, in its sole discretion, may terminate its agreement with the Client immediately. Client acknowledges that if Company terminates the Client agreement under these circumstances, Company has no liability to Client and Company shall transfer all of Client’s data to Client within thirty (30) business days of termination.
    2. Clients and their affiliates shall comply with CAN-SPAM when sending newsletters or e-mails with Company code in the e-mails.
  2. Clients shall adhere to a suppression list and opt-out notification on all unsolicited e-mails.
  3. Clients shall not include the Company’s URLs in e-mails.

  6. Client shall not attempt to pirate the Services.
  7. Client shall not do anything in violation of applicable Federal law.
  8. If Client is unsure as to whether its campaign is in compliance, Client may contact the Company for a review prior to launch. The Company will approve/disapprove Client campaigns on a case-by-case basis.

This list of requirements and restrictions is not an exhaustive list. Furthermore, the Company reserves the right to investigate actions which may involve violations of system or network security and may involve and cooperate with law enforcement agencies in the prosecution of Clients who are involved in such violations. These violations may result in civil and/or criminal liability.

 

Information Collected and Methods of Collection

There are two categories of information that may be collected by the Services:

  1. “Personally Identifiable Information” (“PII”) is information that identifies an individual or that could be used to contact or locate him or her.
  2. “Non-PII” is any collected data that is not PII. Non-PII is typically used for statistics and reporting.

The Company and most of the Client websites use browser cookies (i.e., small files usually used to persist data between browser sessions) to save your login credentials and your personalized settings. These cookies can contain both PII and non-PII. The information in these cookies is used for the purposes of providing you with a better web experience by remembering information from your previous sessions and for analyzing user traffic, trends, and other useful statistical information. This cookie information may be passed to third parties if required by law or when third parties need the information to do data analysis. You may delete these cookies or, by using a setting in your browser, disable the use of cookies altogether, but, if you do, your browsing experience will not be as robust.

The Company does not review or control third-party advertiser websites linked to or from our website or our Clients’ websites. Therefore, the Company is not responsible for their content nor do we represent that their content is accurate or appropriate. Your use of any third-party website is on your own initiative and at your own risk and is not subject to this Privacy Policy.

 

Your PII.

Our Services collects PII when you provide it or if we collect it as described in this Privacy Policy. In addition, our clients’ websites may collect PII when you purchase products or services, receive personalized content, or participate in forums or surveys.

The following types of PII may be collected:

  1. Your logon ID and password for our Services;
  2. Your full name;
  3. Your location and contact information, such as mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address;
  4. Your credit card or other financial information such as bank account numbers; and
  5. Any other information you submit to the Company through our Services, e-mail, or telephone or when you submit it to Client websites.

This PII may be used to contact you about our products and services, forwarded to your credit card provider, or used for technical support and other such customer support. In addition, Clients may contact you directly to confirm information or purchases successfully received from you. Clients may also contact you to provide services you request, to manage your account, and/or to inform you of any service announcements.

 

Your non-PII.

The Company may use analytic and reporting technologies to collect anonymous information from you. This collection of non-PII may be done passively (i.e., without your affirmative consent) while you are using our Services. Examples of this anonymous information are: your browser type, your device’s operating system, date/time of access to our Services, and geographic information. Your non-PII may be used for security purposes and to monitor network and Service activities.

 

Storage and Ownership of Your Information

The Company stores the information we collect in servers located in the United States. Your use of our Services acts as your consent to transfer your PII outside of your country of residence if such servers reside outside of your country of residence. We do not own your data nor are we “controllers” of your data as described in the EU Directive. We adhere to the Principles with regard to the exposure of your information to our customers or our clients’ customers. 

 

Protection of PII

The Company uses reasonable practices and technologies to safeguard your information against illegal intrusion and unauthorized access. These measures include firewalls, use of passwords, anti-virus, and virus detection software. No security measures are 100% reliable, however. Therefore, the Company cannot warranty the security of your PII.

The Company does not guarantee that your PII will never be compromised because no electronic transmission is completely secure. Even though the Company will employ every reasonable security measure to protect the privacy of your PII, the Company cannot guarantee that these security measures will be sufficient or that they will never fail or be circumvented.

The Company uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol to encrypt any financial information that you transmit to the Company. But, do not send confidential information including social security numbers, financial information, or passwords to us through unsecured electronic communication such as e-mail, online chat, or instant messaging unless we advise you in advance that security measures are in place because such communication may not be secure.

You have the responsibility of protecting your logon ID and password. You must contact the Company (using the contact information in this Privacy Policy) if you have reason to believe that your account has been compromised. In addition, you agree that you will not share your logon ID and password with anyone else

The Company will never send you any communication (e-mail or otherwise) asking for your logon ID or password. If you receive any such communication that looks like it is from the Company, do not respond to the communication and immediately report such communication to the Company at the contact information in this Privacy Policy.

You understand and agree that you are using our Services at your own risk. You assume all responsibility and risk for your use of our Services and understand that information you share through our Services is shared at your own risk.

In addition, the Company shall only disclose your PII to third parties that the Company believes in good faith follow acceptable privacy and security policies.

Successors

The Company may transfer your PII as part of a sale, merger, acquisition, or any other change of control. In addition, the Company reserves the right to transfer your PII to protect the Company’s legal rights in the unlikely of a bankruptcy, reorganization, receivership, assignment, or any application of creditors’ rights.
