Providing Notice to Customers and Prospective Customers
Information We Collect and How We Collect It
We gather information from customer and prospective customers through a variety of ways, online and through offline communications, which include in-person meetings, web forms, emails, and phone calls. We collect contact information from representatives of our prospective business customers, such as name, company name, address, email address, and telephone number. As we communicate with these representatives, we may gather additional information from them, such as the potential customer’s industry, their staff, communication requirements or revenues. We may also use data-appending methods to gather additional information, such as by reviewing biographical information posted by these representatives on the Internet.
After a prospective customer becomes a customer, we continue to maintain the information collected during the time in which it was a prospective customer. We also collect additional information from prospective customers that become customers using the means we describe above. For instance, once prospective customers enter into a service agreement with CloudCall, we collect and maintain information about customers’ agreement with CloudCall, payment information, and information about individual transactions.
Also, we collect information needed to deliver online services, support, and training to customers. For example, we gather information to register prospective customers and customers to use our services, such as a username and password for each individual account.
Calls with CloudCall’s Sales, Customer Service, and other CloudCall employee groups may be recorded to gather information to improve customer service. Customers have the options of stating their consent to be recorded, implying consent by staying on the call, or opting out by asking that their call not be recorded or hanging up.
Moreover, we collect information that you or others provide to us in connection with your use of our services. Examples include phone numbers you dial or provide to our services, records you hold in your customer relationship management systems, service set-up information, service configurations and settings, recorded calls, messages, and meetings, voicemails, incoming and outgoing faxes, user-saved or stored content shared among users, email and text communications, and call center customer information you provide to us. Our systems also generate reports and information stored on your account. We maintain this system-generated information in connection with your account.
Children are not eligible to use CloudCall’s website and services, and we ask that minors (under eighteen years old) not submit personally identifiable information to us.
Sharing and Transfer of Information (Onward Transfer)
Some information that we collect and store under this policy may be in the possession of third parties that we use for the delivery of CloudCall’s products and services and data processing.
We require these third parties to protect that information with the same privacy and security controls that apply to our own collection, storage, and use of the information. Where required by the Privacy Shield framework, CloudCall will not undertake any cross-border transfer of information to a third party unless the third party has certified its commitment to adhere to the Privacy Shield framework or CloudCall enters into a written agreement with such third party requiring that the third party provide at least the same level of privacy protection as is required by the relevant Privacy Shield principles. For instance, these third parties have agreed to keep the stored information confidential and to not use or disclose that information without our authorization.
We reserve the right to share or transfer your information in connection with a future or actual sale, merger, reorganization, or other transfer of our business (including under bankruptcy proceedings). We also may share or disclose your information if we receive a request or demand for such information in the form of:
- A court order to disclose such information;
- What we believe (in our sole discretion) is lawful process in a criminal investigation or proceeding, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order;
- Judicial or administrative process in civil proceedings, such as subpoenas or discovery requests; or
- A national security letter or similar request from any state or federal law enforcement agency.
We have no obligation to notify you of the receipt of such a request or demand.
We also reserve the right to share or transfer your information if we believe (in our sole discretion) that such sharing or transfer is required under applicable law.
Finally, we reserve the right to share any information that is not personally identifiable information, such as aggregated information without personally identifiable elements and any de-identified or anonymized information. For instance, as a publicly traded company, CloudCall is required to file numerous reports with different administrative bodies. When we do so, CloudCall may provide aggregate statistics about customers, sales, and traffic patterns. None of these reports or statistics will include personally identifiable information.
Except as set forth above, it is CloudCall’s policy not to share with third parties any information that we collect under this policy without your permission. CloudCall’s business does not include selling or renting any lists of customers, prospective customers, or their representatives.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information collected from customers and Perspective Customers for sales purposes, running trials and to complete transactions with us, such as billing customers. We also use contact and transactional information to deliver equipment and other products purchased by the customer. In addition, we provide online services and control access to these services, with information such as usernames and passwords.
More generally, CloudCall uses the information collected from a customer and Perspective Customers to deliver the products or services trialed or purchased by the customer or Perspective Customer. For instance, the information we collect enables us to deliver to customers SaaS solutions encompassing hosted communications, unified communications, and other services.
Also, we use the information we collect in order to communicate with our Customers and Prospective Customers to offer them other products and services. We may also use gathered information to communicate with customers in order to respond to their inquiries and provide training and support. We may communicate with customers’ representatives by electronic or other communications, such as emails, newsletters, postal mail, and phone calls. We also reserve the right to use the information we collect to investigate and help prevent unlawful or potentially unlawful activity that threatens either CloudCall, any company affiliated with CloudCall, or any of our respective customers.
We retain this information about former customers and Perspective Customers until we delete their information under our document retention and deletion practices.
Safeguard the information we collect
CloudCall uses industry-standard administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the confidentiality of the information we collect under this policy from security threats that we reasonably can anticipate. CloudCall’s security safeguards protect the confidentially, integrity and availability of information collected under this policy to assure its reliability for its intended use and to protect it from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
CloudCall uses information collected under this policy for the purposes for which it has been collected, as described above. In addition, CloudCall implements practices to ensure that such information is accurate, complete, and current. If you wish to access the information we have on file for you, or to change, add to, or delete information about you, please us email us at email@example.com.
CloudCall has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to alternative dispute resolution providers located within the European Union and Switzerland. Specifically, the EU Data Protection Authorities (DPA) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC). CloudCallcommits to cooperate with these authorities and comply with the advice given regarding human resources data transferred from the EU and Switzerland in the context of individuals.
If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not resolved your complaint, please contact the EU Data Protection Authorities (DPA) or Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) for further information. The services of these authorities are provided at no cost to you.
For human resources data, we have agreed to cooperate with relevant Data Protection Authorities.
