Data Collection and Purpose
KnowClick collects data on our website, through using our Services on our Clients’ websites, and through our Services for Clients using email or text messaging. Our data is primarily collected from running surveys and tracking website activity.
Our surveys ask a variety of questions which can capture many different types of data. You are typically not required to answer a survey to view our Website or view our Clients’ websites. Additionally, most questions are optional. Most of our surveys are anonymous. To opt out, simply do not take our surveys.
We track website activity, such as clicks, downloads, mouse movement, referring sources, and other commonly tracked behaviors. We also often track web browser type, screen resolution, operating system, and may include the IP address, unique device identifier (“UDID”), international mobile equipment identity (“IMEI”), mobile equipment identifier (“MEID”) or media access control “MAC”) address and other commonly captured identifiers and measures. Additionally, we may collect other data on our Clients’ websites. See the Client’s privacy policies to see what data may be collected.
The data KnowClick collects either belongs to our Client or to KnowClick depending on the contractual relationship between KnowClick and the Client and where & how the data was collected. KnowClick uses the data to compile reports and provide improvement recommendations for our Clients. Aggregated anonymous data may also be used for case studies, presentations, and other marketing materials and does not include any Personal Data.
When we collect and access Personal Data on our Clients’ websites to their visitors and customers, we are acting as a data processor on behalf of our Clients under their strict instructions. We process this Personal Data in accordance with their requirements and our contractual agreements with these Clients. In these cases, our Clients are the data controllers and data owners. If you are a website visitor or a customer of one of our Clients, you should refer to that Client’s website to understand how their privacy practices apply to your Personal Data.
KnowClick may email surveys to website visitors and customers of our Clients, typically to those who opted into a survey or opted in to the Client’s email list. Given that KnowClick is acting as the Client’s agent, if the customer or website visitor chooses to opt-out of future emails when they receive a survey invitation, the opt-out will be Client-specific and limited to opting out of receiving email surveys related to this Client.
If you visit our Website located at www.KnowClick.com and choose to contact us or access certain materials, you may be asked to provide certain Personal Data about yourself, such as your name, email address, or phone number. We use this information to communicate with you and provide the information requested.
If you are one of our Clients, you may be able to create an account on our Website to access to the Services you have contracted. During registration, you will be asked to provide Personal Data about yourself (such as your name and email address). This information, as well with any other Personal Data collected during our contractual relationship, will be used to provide you with our Services and technology solutions in accordance with the agreement executed between your company and us. This includes giving you access to our Services, providing customers’ support, communicating with you about your use of the Services. We can also use this information to help us to improve our products and services.
We typically do not request, access or otherwise track any location-based information from your mobile device.
Disclosures of Personal Data
KnowClick does not sell any Personal Data collected from survey respondents & website activity and does not share any Personal Data with third parties who are not working on behalf of KnowClick or the respective Client.
We may provide your data, including your Personal Data, to entities (such as vendors, consultants, agents, etc.) that provide services to help us with our business activities (“Partners”) and to entities that are working on behalf of our Client (on whose website or property we collected the data). These services may include, for example website analytics, market research tools, hosting services or email services.
We may also disclose your data:
- To provide you with any information or services that you request;
- To respond to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal process, or as otherwise required by law;
- To exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, to enforce our contracts, to investigate, respond to and resolve problems or inquiries (including governmental inquiries), or to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain;
- With our affiliates, subsidiaries, or parent companies; and
- With your consent.
If you have provided Personal Data to us, and wish to limit our use and disclosure of that data, see “Accessing and Controlling Your Personal Data” below.
Data Retention (How Long We Keep Data)
KnowClick retains all data, including the Personal Data we process on behalf of our Client, for as long as needed to provide Services or as necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, to demonstrate compliance, to resolve dispute and to enforce our rights and agreements or for a period of 3 years, whichever is longer. In some cases where Personal Data is needed only to send an immediate survey via email or text, that Personal Data may be deleted after sending.
Data Storage, Security, and Integrity
KnowClick takes reasonable precautions to protect Personal Data on its system from misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We use secure server hosting locations with 24×7 security monitoring, firewall protection, controlled access, and encryption technology to protect your Personal Data. No method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is 100% secure, we cannot guarantee nor warrant its absolute security. KnowClick has a business continuity plan for the event of a data center failure or disaster. However, there is no guarantee that we can fully recover all data in the event of such a disaster or failure.
If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that your Personal Data may be transmitted, stored, and processed in the United States. By using our website, contracting with us to receive our products or services, or submitting any information to us through our Services, you consent to this transfer, processing and storage of your information in the United States, a jurisdiction that may or may not provide the same level of privacy protection as the laws in your home jurisdiction.
Many websites use “cookies” to help personalize a website visitor’s online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on the hard drive of a computer by a web page server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you. Cookies refer to both HTTP Cookies as defined by the IETF and the local and session storage methods of the Web Storage specification as defined by the World Wide Web consortium. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer or device.
We primarily use first party cookies when providing our Services on our Clients’ websites. These cookies exist to prevent our surveys from displaying more than once in a time period and to assist in tracking behavior and triggering surveys.
We allow third parties working on our behalf to use first and third party cookies and web beacons on our own Website (www.knowclick.com), typically for marketing purposes.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals. If our Client acts on these, they typically would prevent our Services from operating for that visitor.
Children under 18
Our Website and our Services are typically intended for people 18 years of age and older.
In some cases, our Clients who use our Services may offer content developed for children and/or children’s products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you should only participate in our surveys with the permission of a parent or guardian.
Children under 13 may not submit any Personal Data to us, and if we discover that we have unintentionally collected any Personal Data on a child under 13, we will take appropriate steps to promptly delete it.
