The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
We may receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. The types of Personal Information we collect include without limitation your full name, email address, IP address, browser information, username, and any other information necessary for us to provide our services. You may choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some features. The Personal Information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain services, customizing the content you see, and communicating with you about new services.
PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AUTOMATICALLY
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our Website or use our services. SmartRuling automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Website and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. SmartRuling only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Website or services so that we can make the Website appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our Website or services. We may share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use the Website or services, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, SmartRuling never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
INFORMATION COLLECTED BY SMARTRULING AGENT
In order to use the service, you will be required to download and install a software application onto computers that you wish to monitor as part of the service. This software, SmartRuling Agent, collects information about the user’s use of the computer that may extend beyond the information collected as part of registration, including without limitation user behavior data such as application usage, website visits, screenshots and idle time. Every account has it’s own unique agent associated with it. An SmartRuling Agent created for you will only report data to your account.
SmartRuling Agent is not a keystroke-logging application it does not record any keystrokes or mouse movements.
Information collected by SmartRuling Agent will only be available to registered users on your SmartRuling account. Administrative users have the ability to delete data that is collected by SmartRuling Agent, and no copy will be retained by the company.
We often receive a confirmation when you open an email from SmartRuling if your computer supports this type of program. SmartRuling uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
When you receive marketing and promotional email from SmartRuling, you may opt out of receiving further e-mails of those types by following the included instructions to unsubscribe. SmartRuling may send you administrative and customer service-related email messages for which you may not be given the option to unsubscribe. For example, you may receive messages about your account, the provisioning of requested services, system status update messages, and service and security announcements which are mandatory. If you no longer wish to receive administrative and customer-service-related email messages, you must deactivate your SmartRuling account.
INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES
For purposes such as improving personalization of our service, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to your account information. For instance, as part of the configuration of SmartRuling, your account administrator may provide information about you, in order to help you make best use of our system.
