Privacy Policy

Updated: July 6th, 2018

Introduction

Thanks for taking the time to read our Privacy Policy. We understand your data belongs to you and we respect the trust you put in us to safeguard any data you share. To protect your privacy and help you make informed choices about your data, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining what data we collect, how we use it, and your rights in relation to your data. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should first contact us at privacy@acemetrix.com.

 

By using the Ace Metrix Service, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into, and made a part of, the Ace Metrix, Inc. Terms of Use, and capitalized terms used and not defined in this policy have the meaning given to them in the Terms.

 

In this notice, “We,” “Us” and “Our” implies Ace Metrix, Inc.

Information We Collect

 

Clients
We collect only limited information from you when you use the Ace Metrix Service, including contact information (i.e. email address). In addition, if you are a registered user of the Ace Metrix Service, and log on to use Ace Metrix Service via the Ace Metrix Site, our third party provider of online transaction services may collect your IP address, and may also use “cookies,” to access that information on return visits.  No personally identifiable information is generally stored or retrieved in cookies.

 

We collect information about your activity when using the Ace Metrix Service, for instance how you use it (e.g., date and time you logged in, time spent in the Service). This helps us respond to any issues and improve our services.

 

Survey Respondents
When you partake in one of our surveys, we collect on that information regarding your demographics (i.e. age, gender, income level, region) and opinions that you provide to us explicitly. We do not collect anything from you that you do not tell us in the survey.  The third party vendors who solicit survey respondents on our behalf obfuscate your identity so that we have no way of knowing who you are outside of the demographic information you provide us within the survey itself. Your IP address is only tracked at the system level to assist with technical troubleshooting.

 

Guests of acemetrix.com
The only information we collect that can be used to identify you individually, sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information,” is the information (including your name and email address) you may submit to us by filling out the form on the “Contact Us” page, or any of the forms you fill out to download gated content (white papers, webinars) on the Ace Metrix Site. Your personally identifiable information, gathered through these forms, is stored in our marketing automation platform, Pardot.

Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A “session cookie” expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. No personally identifiable information is generally stored or retrieved in cookies.

 

We process this automatically-collected information because it is in our interests as a business to make sure that our website functions smoothly and effectively. If you reject our site’s cookies, or have turned cookies off in your browser, you will still be able to use the site, but you may find that the site does not function optimally or that certain aspects of its functionality are impaired.

 

Google Analytics
Our Site uses Google Analytics, a web analytic service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses javascript and cookies to help us analyze how visitors use the Site (i.e., what pages are viewed most often, how users get from one page to another). For more information on Google Analytics cookies, visit www.google.com/policies.

 

To opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This allows you to download and install a Google Analytics cookie-free web browser.

 

Pardot
Our Site also employs Pardot, which collects personally identifying information by using javascript and cookies to help us analyze how visitors use the Site. Pardot’s products help us identify Site visitors, analyze email campaigns, and track forms. The cookies are set to remember the values you filled out on any of the forms on our site so you do not have to provide all your contact information again. Pardot tracks cookies for 1 year, or 365 days.

 

Anonymous visitor tracking information may be shared with other Pardot customers. For more information about Pardot cookies, please visit http://www.pardot.com/company/legal/privacy-policy.

Use of Information Obtained by Ace Metrix

 

Clients
The main reason we use your information is to deliver and improve our services. We will use the contact information you have provided to reach out about service updates, and for administrative and customer service purposes.

 

Survey Respondents
We use the information you provide in the survey in aggregate form with every other respondent for business analytics. Sometimes we will use your data in aggregate form when we make findings public through marketing resources (i.e. blog posts, case studies). Again, we don’t collect any personally identifiable information about you so this can never lead back to you.

 

Guests of acemetrix.com
We may use the contact information you have provided to update you via email on Ace Metrix insights (including blog posts, and other marketing resources) if you opt-in on the original form you fill out. You agree to being contacted when filling out one of the forms on the “Contact Us” page (general Contact; Press & Media; Newsletter).

 

No unsolicited contact will be made. You can choose to unsubscribe from communications anytime by clicking on the “unsubscribe” button at the bottom of an email, or by emailing us at marketing@acemetrix.com. You will not receive any communication from us if you decide to unsubscribe, but any emails sent to you prior to your unsubscribe date will still be lawful. 

 

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

Ace Metrix is not in the business of selling clients or Site guests’ information, and we take your privacy very seriously.

 

Clients & Guests
In the course of providing the Ace Metrix Service to you and other users , we make limited disclosures of your information to others for a variety of purposes. We share your information with third parties where we believe such sharing is:

  1. Incident to our ordinary business operations (e.g., emailing you through our third party server, Pardot)
  2. Legally required or when we choose to collaborate with a law enforcement agency in the investigation or other law enforcement activity
  3. Useful to protect and defend our rights and property
  4. Useful to protect the personal safety or property of our customers or the public
  5. Authorized by you.

 

If the ownership of all or a portion of the Ace Metrix business, or individual business units owned by Ace Metrix, Inc., were to change, such as through a merger or acquisition, your user information may be transferred to the new owner in connection with that transaction. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to Privacy Policy it was subject to at the time of transfer.

 

Rights

In regards to your data, you have the right to:

  • You may request corrections to the personal data we hold about you, when that data is incorrect or incomplete.
  • Access any and all data of yours we store.
  • You may request that we delete the personal information we hold about you. We will comply, unless there is a lawful reason for not doing so.
  • Request a copy of the information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.
  • Withdraw your consent to our using your data for marketing purposes at any time. Please email marketing@acemetrix.com to place your request.
  • Lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.

Unless otherwise noted, please contact privacy@acemetrix.com when exercising your rights listed above.

 

Security

Ace Metrix takes certain precautions to protect our users’ information and to limit the risk that it will be accessed without authorization, including use of certain industry standard technologies and practices. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Ace Metrix, and you do so at your own risk.

 

If Ace Metrix learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically where possible so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Ace Metrix may post a notice through the Ace Metrix Service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach, or if you have any questions about the security of Ace Metrix applications, please contact us at privacy@acemetrix.com.

 

Children

We do not knowingly market or provide our services to children, and our services (including this website) are not designed for use by persons under 18 years old. Children under 18 are not allowed to register with or use our services, or to submit personal data to us. If we discover that we have collected personal information from a child under 18, we will delete that information as soon as reasonably possible. If you believe that we might have any information from a person under age 18, please contact us at marketing@acemetrix.com.

 

Modifications to this Policy

As specified in the Terms, Ace Metrix may from time to time revise this Privacy Policy. If we do, we will post those changes on this page and indicate the new effective date so that you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it. For changes to this Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our right to use or disclose your personal information, we will attempt to notify you before implementing the change. Without your consent, we will only use and disclose your information in a manner consistent with the version of the Privacy Policy that was in effect at the time we collected that information. We encourage you to periodically review this Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the information we collect from you.
