The Information SlideBi May Collect
A. Information You Provide
SlideBi may collect and store any personal information you enter through the Services or the App. This may include personally identifying information, such as your name, username, birthday, gender, location, home address, business address, e-mail address, phone number, pictures, and credit card information. If you are a SlideBi Provider, SlideBi may also request certain additional information in order to verify your identity, conduct background checks, and/or comply with tax obligations, such as your social security number, government issued identification, and/or a completed IRS Form W-9. SlideBi may also request information about a SlideBi Provider’s availability and rates.
While SlideBi uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, SlideBi does not promise, and you should not expect, that such any content or information you submit to the App or Services may not be inadvertently collected and that any such content or information will remain secure. The information you provide to us will be kept in our database. We will use reasonable means to protect the integrity and safety of the database. However, we cannot guarantee that third parties will not improperly access the database. SlideBi relies on third-party professional hosting solutions that use reasonable care in maintaining security measures to protect you and our systems against unauthorized access to, or alteration, disclosure, destruction, or loss of personal data hosted on our system.
You also may give us permission to access your information on other services. If you connect to the Services using your Braintree, Facebook, or other third-party service credentials (each, a “Supported Platform”), you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username, encrypted access credentials, and other information that may be available on or through your Supported Platform account, including but not limited to your name, home address, and past activity on the applicable Supported Platform. The information we get from Supported Platforms may depend on your settings or their privacy policies.
B. Information Collected Automatically
Like many sites on the Internet, SlideBi’s website, www.slidebi.com (the “Site”), automatically collects information from your browser when you visit the Site. This information may include your location, internet addresses, and other web log information (such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, device type, browser / device language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or device [see “Cookies” below]).
In order for the App to work with your iPhone, iPad, Android phone, or other mobile device, SlideBi must collect your Device Identification Code or “DIC”. The DIC is a special type of identifier used in software applications in order to provide a unique reference number for applications like those used by your mobile device. Your DIC is not shared with other users. In addition, with your permission, we will access your location information from GPS-enabled devices that you have enabled or when you use location-based Services.
This information is logged for internal use by SlideBi, including helping diagnose technical problems and to administer the App and Services in a manner that allows us to constantly improve the quality of the Services provided to you. We may also combine all of this non-identifying information with other non-identifying information to infer interests or demographic characteristics.
SlideBi is the sole owner of information collected on the App and Services. We reserve the right to screen, copy, transmit, and review all communications conducted by or through the App and Services. We may conduct these activities for technical support purposes and in order to enforce our policies and agreements. At our sole discretion, we may decide to conduct these activities at various times or not at all.
C. Cookies and Use of Cookie Data
Like many sites on the Internet, when you visit the Site, SlideBi may assign your computer one or more cookies to facilitate access to the Site and to personalize your online experience. Through the use of a cookie, SlideBi also may automatically collect information about your online activity on the Site, such as the time and date of your visits, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on the Site. SlideBi may use this data to better understand how you interact with the Site, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Site, and to improve the Site and our Services. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able use some of the interactive features offered on the Site. In addition, please be aware that other parties may also place their own cookies on or through the Site, and may collect or solicit personal information from you. Other cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to the registration data you have submitted to SlideBi in hashed, non-human readable form. No personally identifiable information is contained in these cookies. Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other do-not-track (“DNT”) mechanisms, the App does not respond to web browser-based DNT signals at this time.
If you use the App, SlideBi may use mobile cookies. A mobile cookie is a small data file transferred to your mobile device for record-keeping purposes. These mobile cookies help SlideBi track session-based information and also better understand the effectiveness of the Services. These mobile cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information.
D. Information Collected by Third Parties
If you connect your SlideBi account to a Supported Platform, the Supported Platform may share information about your account with SlideBi. You also may give SlideBi permission to cause certain transactions on the Supported Platform. You understand that such activities will be attributed to your account on Supported Platforms and may be published on the Supported Platforms.
In addition, SlideBi may receive certain information collected by third parties, such as when third parties conduct background checks on SlideBi Providers. Those third parties share the results of the background check with SlideBi.
SlideBi may employ or engage other companies and individuals from time to time to perform business functions on behalf of the App and Services. These persons are provided with personal identifying information required to perform their functions, but are prohibited by contract from using the information for other purposes. These persons engage in a variety of functions which include, but are not limited to removing repetitive information from user lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, performing background checks, processing credit card payments, and providing user services.
Any supplied billing or payment information (if collected by and through the App, as opposed to being directly inputted and collected by and through third parties such as Braintree) shall be encrypted for transmittal to a third-party intermediary for processing. Such billing information is used only to bill a Requester for those purchases you choose to make through the App or Services. The process is designed to protect your billing information against unauthorized misappropriation by third parties. As the technological landscape is constantly changing, no security system is absolutely secure. SlideBi cannot and does not guarantee the security of any of its databases and information contained therein, nor can SlideBi guarantee any supplied information will be absolutely secure from interception during transmission to the App and/or Services over the Internet.
