  1. PRIVACY STATEMENT. This Privacy Statement covers the use of certain Mindesk products and services delivered to you via apps or web pages, including Mindesk software, Mindesk online services, Mindesk cloud based services, and any Mindesk networks related to any of the foregoing (collectively, the “Mindesk Services” or “Services”) and the licensure of software products identified above, which includes computer and application software and may include associated media, printed materials, and “online” or electronic documentation, and any future versions, releases, updates, patches, error fixes and bug fixes of the above software (“Mindesk Software”). For convenience, we refer to the combination of products, software, websites, apps, and services we provide to you as the “System.”

You understand that through your use of the System you consent to the collection and use of certain information as described in this Privacy Statement, including the transfer of this information to the United States and/or other countries for storage, processing and use by Mindesk. Although the laws that protect personal information in those countries may differ from the laws where you live, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected. By using our websites and giving your information to us, you consent to the transfer of the data outside of your country of residence. This Privacy Statement is subject to change and we will notify you in the event of a material change by posting such change prominently on the System; your continued use of the System after such changes will indicate your consent to the revised Statement.

Mindesk collects information relating to you and your use of the System in order to provide services and features that are easy to use and responsive to your needs. We use the term “Consumer Information” to refer to any personally identifiable or anonymous information relating to you or your use of the System. We use Consumer Information for a wide variety of purposes, as described below:

  • Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Statement, we do not share your Contact Information with anyone without your express consent.
  • “Contact Information” means information that allows someone to identify or contact you or any user authorized by you to contact or interface with the System (e.g., your name, address, telephone number, email address). We may use your Contact Information to market Mindesk and third-party products and services to you via various methods.
  • You can stop the delivery of future promotional emails from us by following the specific instructions in advertising emails you may receive. These choices do not apply to the receipt of mandatory service communications that are considered part of the Services.
  • “Service Information” means information necessary or useful to us in providing the System to you. Examples of Service Information includes, but is not limited to, geographical location, software installation information, installation date, software usage data (e.g. installation date and time, software boot date and time, software close date and time, features activated), devices you use and how/when you use them (e.g., types, model numbers, software version numbers, OS types, graphic card model) which will enable us to provide you with information regarding upgrades, error fixes, and software updates, and the level of Service. This information is used by us for the operation of the System, to provide the Services, to maintain quality of the System and Services, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the System, among other things. We may also use Service Information for customer support, System restoration, and research and development activities for new products and services, and other similar purposes. Finally, we may provide certain Service Information to selected third parties, such as our business partners, for marketing purposes, where we have obtained your specific consent.
  • Sometimes we may “anonymize” Consumer Information by removing any identifier that can be associated with your personal Contact Information. Anonymous Consumer Information helps us develop reports and analyses about how our customers use our System and for other research such as behavioral inferences. We may publically share or sell anonymous Consumer Information and reports and analyses based on anonymous Consumer Information. We may disclose aggregated, anonymous Consumer Information, and analyses and reports derived from such information to third parties including utilities, our service providers, suppliers, advertisers, merchants, consumer and market research companies and other organizations.
  • We use tools to collect information from users of the System, including cookies and in-app analytics; we may use these tools to remember personal information when you use the Services in order to understand and analyze trends, to administer the System, to learn about user behavior on the System, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may use this information in our marketing and advertising both on and off the System.
  • We also use third parties to help with certain aspects of our operations, which may require disclosure of your Consumer Information to them. For example, we may use a third party to communicate with you about your account or upcoming features or services, for marketing purposes, to process and collect payment for your Services via your credit card, to generate demographic profiles based on Consumer Information of our customers, and to perform other work as part of or in relation to the System that we may need to outsource. We require these contractors and third parties to agree to protect the confidentiality of your Consumer Information and to use it only as necessary to perform the services they are asked to perform. These contractors and third parties are responsible and liable if they misuse any Consumer Information.
  • We reserve the right to transfer Consumer Information in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.
  • We may disclose Consumer Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal requirements or with legal process served on us, to protect and defend our rights or property, or in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of any individual. We may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. These websites may have their own privacy policies, which we suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. To the extent such websites are not owned or controlled by Mindesk, we are not responsible for the websites’ content, any use of the websites, or the privacy practices of the websites.

 

If the System is distributed by a dealer, contractor, utility company, retailer, or other third party and you share your Consumer Information with such party, we cannot control and are not responsible for the collection, storage, disclosure, and use of your information by such party. If the System is provided through your utility provider or third party System provider, we may share Consumer Information with your utility provider or third party System provider in accordance with your agreement with such utility provider or third party System provider. In some circumstances, we may share your Consumer Information with third parties upon your request; in such event we cannot control and are not responsible for the collection, storage, disclosure, and use of your information by such party. In these circumstances, such parties’ obligations with respect to such Consumer Information are governed by their agreement with you. In the event you choose to control your device with a third party application, software, or other offering, we cannot control or be responsible for the collection, storage, disclosure, and use of your Consumer Information by such third party.

Mindesk does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone younger than 13. If Mindesk is made aware that it has received personally identifiable information from someone younger than 13, it will use reasonable efforts to remove that information from its records.

 

Mindesk is committed to protecting the security of your personal information and System. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information and System from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in facilities to which access is limited. For sites to which you login, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of your password and not to reveal this information to others. When you move around a site to which you have logged in, or from one site to another that uses the same login mechanism, we verify your identity by means of an encrypted cookie placed on your machine. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Mindesk cannot guarantee that the System or your personal information cannot be compromised or hacked.

 

The provisions of this Privacy Statement will apply to the fullest extent permitted by law and be interpreted and applied to a lesser extent (but, in such case, to the maximum extent possible), where necessary to be valid. The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of this Privacy Statement will not affect any other provision and all such other provisions will remain in full force and effect without change or modification thereof. You consent to the exclusive use of the English language in this Privacy Statement, as well as all communications from Mindesk.
