The Information Fohlio May Collect
- Information You Provide
Fohlio may collect and store any personal information you enter through the Services or the Site. This may include personally identifying information, such as your name, username, location, e-mail address, company name, company logo, pictures, images, and/or credit card information. We try our very best to safeguard your data. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, Fohlio does not promise, and you should not expect, that such information may not be inadvertently collected and that such personal information will remain secure.
You also may give us permission to access your information on other services. If you connect to the Services using your LinkedIn or other third-party service credentials (each, a “Supported Platform”), you authorize us to collect your authentication information, such as your username, encrypted access credentials, and other information that may be available on or through your Supported Platform account, including but not limited to your name, pictures, and connection lists. The information we get from Supported Platforms may depend on your settings or their privacy policies.
Fohlio does not store any user financial information, even though we may request information about you and your credit card and/or bank account. Fohlio does not store certain financial data due to its use of third party agents, such as Stripe, as its financial transaction facilitator. That financial information is handled, processed, and stored by the third party financial transaction processing companies. Please refer to such third parties’ Terms (https://stripe.com/us/terms) and Privacy Policies (https://stripe.com/us/privacy) for more information about how these parties use your information. To the extent that Fohlio uses third party providers such as Stripe for financial transaction services, we believe that such third parties take the privacy of your personal information seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of their privacy policies.
- Information Collected Automatically
Like many sites on the Internet, the Site automatically collects information from your browser when you visit the Site or use the Services, including the Fohlio Chrome plugin. This information may include your IP address, your browser type and language, access times, the content of any undeleted cookies that your browser previously accepted from Fohlio (see “Cookies” below), and the referring website address. If you use our web clipper plugin, we may also collect your browsing history and location data. We may also combine all of this non-identifying information with other non-identifying information to infer trends or demographic characteristics.
We collect information from you when you:
- Create or register an account, and when you administer your account
- Input information or data into any of our Services, or post or upload Content to our Services
- Submit questions, requests, other communications to us via forms, email, or other communication media
- Contact us for customer support or technical support
- Visit any of our websites or download any of our apps
- Participate in any promotions, demonstrations, contests, surveys, or other marketing events
- Interact with other Fohlio users and guests on our community forums
- Integrate third-party products and services with your Fohlio account
- Cookies and Use of Cookie Data
Like many sites on the Internet, when you visit the Site, Fohlio may assign your computer one or more cookies to facilitate access to the Site and to personalize your online experience. Through the use of a cookie, Fohlio also may automatically collect information about your online activity on the Site, such as the web pages you visit, the time and date of your visits, the links you click, and the searches you conduct on the Site. Fohlio may use this data to better understand how you interact with the Site, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Site, and to improve the Site and our Services. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able use some of the interactive features offered on the Site. In addition, please be aware that other parties may also place their own cookies on or through the Site, and may collect or solicit personal information from you. Other cookies may reflect de-identified demographic or other data linked to the registration data you have submitted to Fohlio in hashed, non-human readable form. No personally identifiable information is contained in these cookies.
- Information Collected by Third Parties
Fohlio may use third party software and/or widgets that are integrated into the Site and via the Services, such as Intercom. These companies may collect information from you, such as your name and your email address. They may also use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their software and/or widgets. Fohlio does not provide any personal information to these third parties.
Fohlio employs or engages other companies and individuals (including but not limited to Stripe and Intercom) to perform business functions on behalf of the Site and Services. These persons are provided with personal identifying information required to perform their functions, but are prohibited by contract from using the information for other purposes. These persons engage in a variety of functions which include, but are not limited to, removing repetitive information from user lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing user services.
Any supplied billing information (if collected by and through the Site, as opposed to being directly inputted and collected by and through third parties such as Stripe) shall be encrypted for transmittal to a third party intermediary for processing. Such billing information is used only to bill you for those purchases you choose to make through the Site. The process is designed to protect your billing information against unauthorized misappropriation by third parties.
How we secure your information
As the technological landscape is constantly changing, no security system is absolutely secure.
We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the information we collect and store. Unfortunately, no security measures are 100% foolproof, and as such no network or system (including ours) can be guaranteed to be 100% secure against destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of, or access to information we collect and store. Fohlio cannot and does not guarantee the security of any of its databases and information contained therein, nor can Fohlio guarantee any supplied information will be absolutely secure from interception during transmission to the Site over the Internet. If you believe your information may not be secure for any reason, please contact us immediately at privacy@Fohlio.com.
