Welcome, and thank you for your interest in ConnectSolutions, Inc. (“ConnectSolutions”, “we,” or “us”) and our Web site at connectsolutions.com (the “Site”), as well as all related websites, downloadable software, mobile applications, connectivity tools, and other products or services, including ConnectSolutions’ Adobe Connect offerings, provided by us and on which a link to this Privacy Policy is displayed (collectively, together with the Site, our “Service”).

This Privacy Policy describes the information that we gather from you on the Service, how we use and disclose such information, and the steps we take to protect such information. By using the Service, you consent to the privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the ConnectSolutions Terms of Service (our “Terms”). Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms.

We collect Personal Data and Anonymous Data from you when you use the Service and/or when you send us communications. “Personal Data” means data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. “Anonymous Data” means data that we create from Personal Data by excluding information that makes such data personally identifiable.

Information we collect on our Service:

  • Billing and Personal Data. We require Participants who register to use the Service to give us “Business Contact Information” (such as their name, company name, address, phone number, and e-mail address). We require each customer to also provide financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, credit card number, and other similar information (“Billing Information”). We will also ask each Appointee to provide us with the number of users within the organization that will be using the Service. If you request additional information, or when you register for the Service, we may also ask for additional Business Contact Information, such as title, department name, or fax number, or additional company information, such as annual revenues, number of employees, or industry.

Cookies and Automatically Collected Data. Our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information related to your use of the Service, such as browser type and version, operating system, platform, Internet Protocol (IP) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and a date/time stamp for your visit.

We may use Google Analytics and other third party services to gather information about your use of the Service, such as the pages and information you viewed.

We, our suppliers, affiliates, or analytics or service providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags and scripts to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the Site and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

We may also automatically collect certain information from Participants and visitors to the Site, such as Internet addresses, as well as call detail records (“CDRs”) that are available to ConnectSolutions through the Service and as collected by OEM products ConnectSolutions may use. This information is logged to help diagnose technical problems, and to administer our Site in order to constantly improve the quality of the Service. We may also track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and Participants and provide such information to third parties.

  • Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information, including Personal Data, from third parties and sources other than the Service, such as our Third Party Services and service providers. If we combine or associate information from other sources with Personal Data that we collect through the Service, we will treat the combined information as Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
