Privacy Policy

Date Last Revised: August 1, 2021

This Privacy Policy explains how we protect personal data provided through our website, (the "Website") and how we use that personal data in connection with our service offered through the website (the “Service”). “Personal data” for purposes of this Policy means information that identifies or is identifiable to a living natural person. This Policy covers both our collection and processing of personal data regarding users of the Dealnotes Website and Service.

1. Collection of data

When you visit Dealnotes, we may collect technical and navigational information, such as computer browser type, Internet protocol address, pages visited, and average time spent on our website. This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, or it may be analyzed to improve our website’s design and functionality.

“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. Dealnotes may set and access cookies on your computer to track and store information about your preferences. Dealnotes may gather information about you through cookie technology. For example, Dealnotes may assign a cookie to you, to limit the amount of times you see a particular notification. Please note that most Internet browsers will allow you to stop cookies from being stored on your computer and to delete cookies stored on your computer. If you choose to eliminate cookies, the full functionality of the Website or Service may be impaired for you.

2. Third Parties

We may use third party service providers to help us analyze certain online activities. For example, these service providers may help us analyze visitor activity on the Site. We may permit these service providers to use cookies and other technologies to perform these services for Dealnote. We do not share any personal data about our customers with these third party service providers, and these service providers do not collect such information on our behalf. These services include:

  • Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use the Site and enhance your experience when you use the Service.

When we interact with you on social media services, the information you share with us which can be seen by anyone other than you, us and the relevant social media service is not covered by this Privacy Policy. Only information you share with us privately (i.e., through direct messages, private chat, etc.) is covered by this Privacy Policy.

Finally, you can also register with our Service and create a Service account via certain third-party services such as Google (each, an “SNS Account”), if and when such functionality is available. If you choose to create a Service account through one of your SNS Accounts, Dealnotes may collect Personal Information such as your name, email address and third-party account credentials (for example, your log-in credentials for Google or other third party sites). Certain information may be required to register for the Dealnotes Service and utilitze certain functionality within the Service. You understand some content and/or information in those accounts (“Third Party Account Information”) may be transmitted into your Dealnotes account, and that Third Party Account Information transmitted to Dealnotes’s Services is covered by this Privacy Policy; for example, your Salesforce data or Google Calendar data.

3. Disclosure of your information.

Dealnotes may disclose your personal information:

  • to third-party contractors that provide services (e.g. email notifications or hosting services) to Dealnotes and are bound by these same privacy restrictions;
  • to the third-party analytics providers identified in Section 3, although in this case we will disclose only information your browser automatically provides, not personally identifiable information like your name, email address, or similar contact information;
  • or to an acquirer as indicated in Section 5.

Dealnotes also reserves the right (and you authorize Dealnotes) to share or disclose your personal information when Dealnotes determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of such information is necessary or appropriate:

  • To enforce our rights against you or in connection with a breach by you of this Privacy Policy or the Dealnotes Terms and Conditions;
  • To prevent prohibited or illegal activities; or
  • When required by any applicable law, rule regulation, subpoena or other lawful request of public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

When we disclose personal information for these purposes, we can’t necessarily predict who the recipients may be, but could include law enforcement agencies, national security agencies, our lawyers, and courts.

Dealnotes may make anonymous or aggregate personal information available, and disclose such data only in a non-personally identifiable manner, to:

  • Users of the Service for purposes of comparison to the broader community;
  • Advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes.

Such information does not identify you individually. Access to any personal information you provide is strictly restricted and used in accordance with specific internal procedures and safeguard governing access, in order to operate, develop or improve the Service.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 16. If you are under 16, please do not attempt to register for the Service or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 16, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 16 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at [email protected].

4. Change of Control.

Personal information may be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization or other change of control. If we sell, merge or transfer any part of our business, part of the sale may include your personal information. If so, you will be asked if you'd like to stop receiving promotional information following any change of control.

5. Data Retention.

When you request us to delete your account for the Service, your data will be permanently expunged from our primary production servers and further access to your account will not be possible. We will also promptly disconnect any connection we had established to your Account Information and delete all account credentials. However, portions of your data, consisting of aggregate data derived from your Account Information, may remain on our production servers indefinitely. Your data may also remain on a backup server or media. Dealnotes keeps these backups to ensure our continued ability to provide the Service to you in the event of malfunction or damage to our primary production servers. We also reserve the right to use any aggregated or anonymous data derived from or incorporating your personal information.

6. Data Security

We use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect Dealnotes accounts and systems from unauthorized access.

When you register for the Service, Dealnotes requires an SNS Account user ID and data token from you for your privacy and security. Dealnotes transmits information such as your Registration Information for Dealnotes or Account Credentials securely.

From the time you submit your SNS Account user ID and data token, these communications between your computer and Dealnotes are encrypted. This enables client and server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering and message forgery.

If you have a security related concern, please contact us at [email protected]. We will work closely with you to ensure a rapid and personal response to your concerns.

7. Information for Persons Outside the U.S.

If you use our Site or Service outside of the United States, you understand that we may collect, process, and store your personal information in the United States and other countries. The laws in the U.S. regarding personal information may be different from the laws of your state or country. Any such transfers will comply with safeguards as required by relevant law.

8. Updates to Privacy Policy.

We update this Privacy Policy periodically. The date last revised appears at the top of the Policy. Changes take effect immediately upon posting.
