Effective July 25, 2020
Privacy is important to us. If you have any questions or comments relating to our privacy practices, please send us a note at email@example.com.
We are a company passionate about providing an innovative software platform that provides users with a number of collaboration, communication and management tools for building effective business systems.
Most of the personal information we collect and process is in connection with the Platform we provide to our users pursuant to our contractual arrangements with them. In these contexts, we are acting as a “data processor” only (please see details under Zone User Personal Information).
In other contexts,such as when you visit the graceblocks.com website or provide us with your contact or billing information, we are acting as the “data controller” because we are making the decisions about what personal information is collected and how we use that information to fulfill our business purposes.
Our privacy practices, and the rights you have with respect to your personal information, are dependent on whether we are acting as data processor or data controller with respect to that information.
Access to Zones within our Platform is only available to Registered Users under a contractual arrangement between us and the Zone Owner, pursuant to which the Zone Owner, and not us, acts as the “data controller” who makes decisions about what personal information is collected and how it is processed within our Platform, and is responsible for establishing and enforcing any agreements and policies with Zone Users governing their maintenance of the confidentiality,privacy and security of such information. Personal information collected in this context could include, for example, business information and communications that Zone Users elect to store, transmit or otherwise process within the Platform, as well as information required to set up a Zone User as a Zone Builder.
If you have questions or concerns about a Zone Owner’s decisions regarding the collection and processing of your personal information within our Platform, you may contact us or the Zone Owner. If you contact us, we will coordinate the response with the Zone Owner as appropriate.
We collect information about you, including information that directly or indirectly identifies you, through your use of the Platform. We do so:
- When you (or other Registered Users) provide the information within the Platform, through filling out forms or otherwise providing information; and
- When you correspond with us regarding a Platform subscription or to receive customer support.
- Registration Information: In order to enable your creation and use of a personalized GraceBlocks account, to track the relationships among Zones, Zone Owners and Zone users for purposes of Platform administration and security, and to allow us to provide you with messages, notifications and alerts relating to the Platform and with customer support, we collect your name, email address,username, password and similar identifiers.
- Payment Information: In order to facilitate payment processing and record keeping, we collect details of transactions you carry out through or in relation to our Platform (such as payment of Platform subscription fees) and of the fulfillment of your orders.
- User Content: In order to provide the services,features and functionalities that comprise the Platform, we collect data,messages, relationships, text, numbers, formulas, documents, images and other information stored, transmitted or otherwise processed by users within the Platform (“User Content”), which may include personal information.
We use such personal information for the purposes identified above, and more generally to: provide you with information, products or services that you request or that we are otherwise contractually obligated to provide; assist you in implementing our Platform, including setting up accounts and perform consulting services; provide you with support and training;complete transactions (including sending invoices and collecting payments);comply with our legal and security obligations with respect to operating the Platform; improve our products, services, and operations; personalize and continually improve user experience on the Platform; market our products and services; perform statistical, demographic and marketing analyses of users; and facilitate our other legitimate business purposes, including managing our security obligations with respect to the Platform and complying with applicable laws and regulations.
We take reasonable measures designed to protect personal information from unauthorized access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, and damage.
