This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information used on the Company’s Web sites and how this information may be used.
The following sets out how Addigy uses different categories of cookies. Please consult the user documentation and help information provided by the maker of your browser for your options for managing cookies’ settings:
|Type of cookies||Description|
Required cookies enable you to navigate the Company’s Web sites and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Web sites and using Addigy Services.
These cookies collect information about how Visitors use our Web site, including which pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from certain pages. These cookies do not collect information that individually identifies a Visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous. It is only used to improve how the Company’s Web site functions and performs.
From time-to-time, Addigy engages third parties to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit the Company’s Web sites. Addigy may also utilize Flash cookies for these purposes.
Functionality cookies allow the Company’s Web sites to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username, language, or your region) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies also enable you to optimize your use of Addigy’s Services after logging in. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize.
Addigy uses local shared objects, also known as Flash cookies, to store your preferences or display content based upon what you view on our Websites to personalize your visit.
|Targeting or Advertising Cookies||
Third parties, with whom the Company partners to provide certain features on our Web sites or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity, use Flash cookies to collect and store information. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.
Addigy uses Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and Visitors’ usage of the Company’s Web sites and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Website tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Website tied to the Web beacon. For example, Addigy may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company’s Web sites.

For example, Addigy uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Customers and Visitors navigate the Company’s Web sites. Addigy also collects IP addresses from Customers whey they log into the Services as part of the Company’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.
Social Media Features
Do Not Track
Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Web sites’ visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting. Addigy does not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Company’s Web sites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. Addigy takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
Many browsers include their own management tools for removing HTML5 local storage objects. You may be able to opt out of receiving personalized advertisements using the “Opt Out” banner on our web sites where applicable.
You will not be able to opt-out of any cookies or other technologies that are “strictly necessary” for the Services.
5. Public forums, public Slack channels, and customer testimonials
Addigy may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Web sites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. Addigy is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.
Customers and Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform friends about the Company’s Web sites. When using the referral program, the Company requests the friend’s name and email address. Addigy will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Web sites. Addigy does not store this information.

Managed accounts and administrators
If you register or access the Services using an email address with a domain that is owned by your employer or organization, and such organization wishes to establish an account or site, certain information about you including your name,, contact info, content and past use of your account may become accessible to that organization’s administrator and other Service users sharing the same domain. If you are an administrator for a particular site or group of users within the Services, we may share your contact information with current or past Service users, for the purpose of facilitating Service-related requests.
You can create content, which may contain information about you, and grant permission to others to see, share, edit, copy and download that content based on settings you or your administrator (if applicable) select. Some of the collaboration features of the Services display some or all of your information to other Service users when you share or interact with specific content. For example, when you comment on a Public Software Catalog Item, we display your user name and organization name next to your comments so that other users with access to the page or issue understand who made the comment. Please be aware that some aspects of Addigy Services like Custom Software be made publicly available, meaning any content posted, including information about you, can be viewed within Addigy Services by other Addigy users.

Addigy may partner with other companies to jointly offer products or services. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly-offered product or service from Addigy, the Company may share Data About Addigy Customers collected in connection with your integration, purchase or expression of interest with our joint partner(s). Addigy does not control our business partners’ use of the Data About Addigy Customers we collect, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies.

We work with third parties who provide software, sales tools, and technical services to deliver and implement customer solutions around the Services. We may share your information with these third parties in connection with their services, such as to assist with billing and collections, to provide support, and to provide customizations. We may also share information with these third parties where you have agreed to that sharing.
Third Party Integrations

Legal bases for processing (for EEA users)
If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal basis depends on the Addigy Services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:
- We need it to provide you the Services, including to operate the Services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of Addigy Services;
- It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
- You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
- We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using Addigy Services. For further questions please see our Contacting Us section below.

Addigy will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided in the Addigy Customer Agreement, or as may be required by law.

11. Changes to this Privacy Statement
12. Other important privacy information
Notice to End Users
Many of our products are intended for use by organizations. Where the Services are made available to you through an organization (e.g. your employer), that organization is the administrator of the Services and is responsible for the accounts and/or Service sites over which it has control. If this is the case, please direct your data privacy questions to your administrator, as your use of the Services is subject to that organization’s policies. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of an administrator’s organization, which may be different than this policy.
Administrators are able to:
- require you to reset your account password;
- restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Services;
- access information in and about your account;
- access or retain information stored as part of your account;
- install or uninstall third-party apps or other integrations
In some cases, administrators can also:
- restrict, suspend or terminate your account access;
- change the email address associated with your account;
- change your information, including profile information;
- restrict your ability to edit, restrict, modify or delete information
Even if the Addigy Services are not currently administered to you by an organization, if you use an email address provided by an organization (such as your work email address) to access Addigy Services, then the owner of the domain associated with your email address (e.g. your employer) may assert administrative control over your account and use of the Services at a later date. You will be notified if this happens.
If you do not want an administrator to be able to assert control over your account or use of Addigy Services, use your personal email address to register for or access the Services. If an administrator has not already asserted control over your account or access to the Services, you can update the email address associated with your account through your account settings in your profile. Once an administrator asserts control over your account or use of the Services, you will no longer be able to change the email address associated with your account without administrator approval.
Please contact your organization or refer to your administrator’s organizational policies for more information.
