Privacy Policy

This privacy policy was last updated on September 29, 2016.

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand how Permission Click Inc. ("Permission Click", "we", or "us") collects and uses the personal information you decide to share, and helps you make informed decisions when using permissionclick.com (the "Site"). By using or accessing permissionclick.com or related Permission Click sites, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is governed by our Terms and Conditions. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICES.

There are many different ways you can use our services - to share information and forms, to communicate with other people and organizations, or to create new content. When you share information with us, for example by creating an Account, we can make those services even better, helping you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we're using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. Our Privacy Policy explains:

We've tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you're not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to us; whether you are new to Permission Click or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices. As always, if you have any questions, please contact us.

Information we collect

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, secure online application which will assist you in sharing information and forms, to communicate with other people and organizations, or to create new content. In order to do so, Permission Click must collect information to identify users, and to allow our users to identify each other. We only collect information about you that we consider necessary for achieving this purpose.

We collect information in two ways:

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to facilitate the transaction and online services that you are engaged in with Permission Click or a third party such as a School, Club or business, which you're associated with. We also use the information we collect from all our services provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new services, and to protect Permission Click Inc. and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content.

We may use the name you provide for your Permission Click Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Permission Click Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Permission Click Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Permission Click Profile information, such as your name and photo.

If you use Permission Click to send documents, we will encrypt and store these documents in an account and make the contents available only to those whom you invite to view or sign these files. We restrict our employees' access to this information so that their access is only as reasonably necessary for us to provide services.

When you contact Permission Click, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements. If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or requests for demos, we may collect information, such as name, email address and phone number, into a file specific to you.

If you register for Permission Click on another web site or use a web site providing a service for Permission Click or a web site that helps facilitate your activity on Permission Click, that web site may provide personal information about you and your transactions back to Permission Click.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.

We may combine information from one service, including personal information, into other Permission Click services - for example to make it easier to share things with people you know.

We may aggregate and/or de-identify the information we collect to limit or prevent identification of any particular user or device. Our use and disclosure of aggregated and/or de-identified information is not subject to any restrictions under this Privacy Policy, and we may disclose it to others without limitation for any purpose.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy. Permission Click processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.

Information you share

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.

In order to facilitate interaction among all Permission Click users, our Product may allow you limited access to other users' contact and authentication status information.

By entering into our User Agreement, you agree that, with respect to other users' information that you obtain through the Site or through a Permission Click-related communication or Permission Click-facilitated transaction, Permission Click hereby grants to you a license to use such information only for:

In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to withdraw consent to sign electronically. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this Section, can you disclose personal information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of that user. You agree that other users may use your personal information to communicate with you in accordance with this Section.

If you choose to use our referral service to tell another contact about our Site, we will ask you for the contact's name and email address. We will automatically send your contact an email inviting him or her to visit the Site. Permission Click stores this information only for the purposes of sending email and of tracking the success of our referral program.

Your contact may contact us at the email address below to request that we remove this information from our database.

Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it, unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

We will retain in our files some personal information, and past documents, forms and transactions to prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our User Agreement and comply with legal requirements as is permitted by law. Therefore, you should not expect that all of your personal information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests. However, such personal information will be deactivated from user viewing and will only be available to select Permission Click personnel.

We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).

Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

Should you wish to opt-out of our data collection and have your personal identifiable information removed, then email at privacy@permissionclick.com.

Information we share

We do not share, sell or rent any of your personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Permission Click unless one of the following circumstances apply:

If Permission Click is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Due to the existing regulatory environment, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private, but you should know that we will take all reasonable steps to provide you a highly secure environment.

Other information collectors

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties using our system or follow links to other sites, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them.

Since Permission Click does not control the privacy policies of third parties, or other individuals' actions, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party or those individuals. We encourage you to be sure the recipients are authenticated to your satisfaction before you send them any documents.

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys to better provide our services to you; that company is prohibited from using our users' personally identifiable information for any other purpose.

Transparency and choice

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used and control who you share information with.

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it's important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, you may not be able to login to PermissionClick.com or utilise other services.

How we protect information

We work hard to protect Permission Click and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:

Control of your password

You are responsible for all actions taken with your User ID and password, including fees charged to your account, and all actions taken with your account. Therefore we do not recommend that you disclose your Permission Click password to any third parties. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password.

Children's privacy

This Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. Permission Click does not target its services or this Site to children under 13. Permission Click does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.

Your California Privacy Rights

California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those parties. As discussed above, we do not currently share personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.

Application of the policy

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by Permission Click and its affiliates, including services offered on other sites, but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you in search results, sites that may include Permission Click services, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services.

Enforcement of the policy

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self-regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Changes to the policy

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your explicit consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page (can be found at www.permissionclick.com) and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). All amended terms shall automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted on the Site. We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.
