How We Collect Information
Information we obtain from your use of Proofs is primarily non-personal information similar to that which servers, web browsers, and services like Google Analytics typically make available. Other non-personal information that we might have access to includes how you use the service (for example: visited pages and tabs), cookies, your approximate location, etc. We collect this non-personally identifying information in order to better understand how visitors use the service and improve their experience. For example, we may monitor the most common content on the network to help identify spam. In some cases, we may publicly display information that is not personally identifying, (for example: by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the network,) or may provide it to third parties for educational or similar purposes other than for sale or profit.
We gather this information to understand your needs and improve user flow. Occasionally, Practithink might use this information to publicly display usage statistics. We may also collect your IP address when you use Practithink for the purpose of understanding the needs of our users.
What Information We Collect
Account Content - We use your account information to identify you as a business or individual. Your username, logo or avatar (if you choose to select one), and latest Proof-related activity – including but not limited to documents, photos, geolocations, data, time stamps, signatures, and more – will be visible to any viewer with Proof access. Both Team Users and End Users may choose to protect the information contained in their proofs by choosing to a) make information only available through their own website by utilizing the Practithink API, or b) creating password protection for Proofs.
Both Team Users and End Users (as outlined in the Practithink Terms of Service) may choose to publicly post personally identifying or sensitive information about themselves during routine use of our system. This can be done by users making comments when creating proofs. Information voluntarily posted in publicly visible parts of Practithink is considered to be public, even if it would otherwise be considered personally identifying or sensitive. As such, it is not subject to the protocols listed below. This is because we don’t control it; you do. Additionally, voluntarily publicizing such information means that you lose any privacy rights you might normally have with regards to that information. This also increases your chances of receiving unwanted communications, like spam.
Practithink will not provide your sensitive account information – including passwords, email addresses, financial information or names – to any third party. We value your privacy, but we are not responsible if you choose to share your sensitive information with anyone or any third party.
In addition to your activity inside Practithink, we collect information about web browsers, and servers as well as information that services such as Google Analytics typically make available such as browser type, referral site, and duration of each visit.
If you are located outside the United States, be aware that any personally identifiable information you enter into our systems will be transferred out of your country and into the United States (and possibly other countries). By using Practithink, you consent to this transfer, and you are indicating that you have the right to transfer such information outside of your country.
We do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If you believe that a child has provided us with personally identifiable information without the consent of his or her parent or guardian, please notify us via the contact form so we can terminate the account.
Note that Practithink uses third party servers, software and other products. Although Prooafactive is not affiliated with them you automatically agrees to their terms and conditions when you use Practithink products.
How We Use Information We Collect
If you are a registered user with Practithink and have provided us your email address, we might occasionally send you an email to let you know about new features, solicit feedback, and keep you up to date on what’s going on with Practithink. Note that if we do send you information that you did not specifically request, we will provide you with the chance to voluntarily opt out of this service.
Accuracy of Data - In addition to protecting your personal information, we also work to keep data up to date to the best of our ability. Note that we are not responsible for inaccurate data submitted by either Team Users or End Users. We are also not responsible for loss of data.
Access - Upon request, we will provide you with reasonable access to the personal information we collect about you. You will have the opportunity to correct, update, modify or delete the information by contacting us via ticket, chat or email when available. Note that we may limit an individual’s access to personal information where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy or where doing so would violate the rights of others.
What Information We Do Not Collect
We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, financial information including credit card and PayPal information, genetic data, health information, or religious affiliation information. Although we do not intentionally collect this sensitive personal information, we realize that you might store this kind of information somewhere in your account. If you store any sensitive personal information on the Practithink servers, you are consenting to our storage of that information on our servers, which are in the U.S., and we are not responsible for that information.
