I. INFORMATION COLLECTION HOW WE GATHER PERSONAL INFORMATION:
The personal information we collect depends on the interaction between you and Adaptiv, which can be broadly classified into the following:
Using Adaptiv Software as a Service. Suppose you use Adaptiv Software as a Service (the “Services”). In that case, we save all of the content you provide, including but not limited to team member accounts, files, images, project information, and any other information you submit to the Services.
We also gather data on the use of the Services, such as user and flow numbers, broadcasts, and so on.
Using the Site: If you use the Site, we collect specific information, as described below in greater detail, that may, on its own or in combination with other data, qualify as personal information.
Personal Information Types:
(i) Adaptiv Customers (“Customers”): Name, address, company name, identification, publicly available social media profile information, email, IT information (IP addresses, usage data, cookie data, browser data), and financial information (credit card details, account details, payment information). We engage third-party service providers to handle your credit card transactions, and they are bound by their own agreements.
(ii) Subscription Purchases. If you purchase a Subscription for the Services, we collect information to process your payment and establish your customer account. This information includes your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, and company name (where applicable). We retain the last four digits of your credit card number to facilitate identification of the card used for future purchases. We engage third-party service providers to manage your credit card transactions, and they are bound by their own agreements.
(iv) Information gathered for and by our Clientele. You may import into our system personal information you have obtained from your users, customers, potential customers, and social media and messaging platform connections (collectively “Subscribers”) or other persons when you use our Services. We have no direct contact with your Subscribers or any other individual, thus it is your responsibility to ensure that we have the appropriate permission and legal basis to collect and handle information about such persons. We may use the information you have supplied, received from you, or obtained about Subscribers as part of our Services. To learn more about how we use Subscribers’ personal information, please refer to our Privacy Statement.
(vi) Sensitive personal information. Please refrain from sending or disclosing any sensitive personal information (such as social security numbers, data related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion or other beliefs, health, biometrics or genetic traits, criminal background, or union membership) to us via the Services or otherwise.
Suppose you choose to provide or disclose sensitive personal information to us. In that case, you must agree to our processing and use of such sensitive personal information in line with this Privacy Statement. You must not supply such sensitive personal information if you do not consent to our processing and use of it. In the section under “Your Data Protection Rights and Options,” you may use your data protection rights to object to or restrict the processing of this sensitive personal information, or to request that it be deleted.
II. REASONS FOR COLLECTING DATA

YOUR INFORMATION PROTECTION RIGHTS AND OPTIONS
You possess the following privileges:

By signing into their account, Adaptiv account holders may check, update, rectify, or remove the personal information in their registration profile. Customers with a Adaptiv account may also contact us if they have any extra requests or inquiries.
Suppose you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). In that case, you may object to the processing of your personal information, ask us to limit the processing of your personal information, or, if technically feasible, seek the portability of your personal information. Again, you may exercise these rights by contacting us through the means provided below.
Similarly, if we have acquired and processed your personal information with your permission and you are an EEA resident, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Your withdrawal of permission will not impact the legality of any processing we undertook previous to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information undertaken based on valid processing grounds other than consent.
You may file a complaint with a data protection authority over the acquisition and use of your personal information by our organization.
Consumers Control Access to Their Data. Adaptiv does not have a direct connection with the persons whose personal information is included in the Custom User Fields handled by our Service. A person who requests access, or who wishes to edit, update, or delete personal information submitted by our users, should address their request directly to the Customer.
V. RETENTION OF INFORMATION
We shall store the personal information we process on behalf of our Customers for as long as necessary to deliver our Services, or indefinitely if necessary to comply with our legal duties, settle disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our agreements. If compelled by law, we shall remove personally identifiable information from our database.
VI. DATA TRANSFERS
Your personal data may be kept and processed in any country in which we have facilities or contract service partners. By accepting the terms of this Privacy Statement, you acknowledge, agree, and consent to (1) the transfer to and processing of personal information on servers located outside the country in which you reside and (2) our collection and use of your personal information as described herein and in accordance with the data protection laws of the countries in which we have facilities or engage service providers, which may be different and may be less protective than those of your country of residence.
VII.INFORMATION ABOUT CHILDREN
We feel it is essential to give further internet safety for youngsters. We urge parents and guardians to spend time online with their children in order to watch, participate, and/or guide their online activities. Adaptiv does not intentionally collect or solicit personal information from children under 16. You may not register for the Services or submit us any information about yourself, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address, if you are under 16 years of age. If we determine that we have obtained personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 16 without verification of parental permission, we will immediately delete the information. Please contact us if you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 16 and think we may have information from or about your child.
Notification of Security Breach
If a security breach results in an unauthorized penetration into our system that seriously impacts you or your Subscribers, Adaptiv will tell you as quickly as feasible and detail the actions we did in response.
Protecting Your Information
We take reasonable and adequate precautions to safeguard personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, and destruction, considering the processing risks and the sensitivity of the information. Despite our efforts to store personal information collected on and through the Site and/or the Services and otherwise by us in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public, we cannot guarantee the security of personal information during transmission or while it is stored on our systems. In addition, although we strive to protect the integrity and security of personal information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized access to personal information by third parties such as so-called hackers. We do not promise or imply that your personal information will be safeguarded against third-party loss, abuse, or modification.
LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (EEA VISITORS/CUSTOMERS ONLY)
Suppose you are a resident of the European Economic Area. In that case, the legal basis for our collection and use of the above-described personal information will depend on the individual personal information and the circumstances in which we gather it. We will typically only collect personal information from you when we have your permission, when we require the information to complete a contract with you, or when it is in our legitimate business interests to do so. In certain instances, law may require us to gather your personal information.
Whenever we request personal information in order to comply with a legal obligation or to enter into a contract with you, we will make this apparent at the time and indicate whether the giving of such information is required or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information). Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information based on our legitimate business interests, we will tell you at the time of collection or use of such interests.
If you have concerns or need further information about the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us using the information given below under “How To Contact Us.”
