INCLUDING FOR USERS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES

Class Intercom, LLC. and its Affiliates (“Class Intercom” or “We“) know that you care about how the information we receive from you is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. This Privacy Policy describes Class Intercom’s privacy practices in relation to information that we collect through websites operated by us from which you are accessing this Privacy Policy, located at [www.classintercom.com] and all related websites, our applications and/or APIs, and online services (collectively, the “Domains”), through our social media pages (collectively, the “Social Media Pages”), as well as through HTML-formatted email messages that we send to you that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, including the Domains, and the Social Media Pages, the “Site(s)”). “You” or a “user” refers to any individual who visits or otherwise uses the Site(s). By using the Site(s), you are accepting and agreeing to the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree with the data practices described in this Privacy Policy you should not use our Services.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third party applications or software that integrate with the Services through our Site (“Third Party Services”) or any other third party products, services, or businesses.

  1. What Types of Information Does Class Intercom Receive From its Users?
    • Personal Information. “Personal Information” is information that identifies you as an individual or relates to an identifiable individual, including: name, title, company name, job function, expertise, postal address, telephone number, physical address, email address, content you post on our Site(s) (text, images, photographs, messages, comments or any other kind of content that is not your e-mail address).  It can also include transaction information, such details about purchases you make through the Site(s), registrations you make through our Site(s), and billing details as well as usage information, such as information about how you use our Site(s) and interact with us. If you submit any Personal Information relating to other people to us or to our service providers in connection with the Site(s), you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and take responsibility for having provided the information.
    • Other Information. “Other Information” is any information that does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an identifiable individual. This might include, for instance, browser and device information; information collected through cookies, pixel tags, and other technologies; demographic information and other information provided by you; or aggregated information. We use this information to facilitate our operation of the Site(s) and for other purposes described below.
    • IP Address. Your “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). An IP Address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever you access the Site(s), along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that you visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications and other services. Class Intercom uses IP Addresses to calculate usage levels of the Site(s), help diagnose problems with its servers, administer the Site(s), and monitor the regions from which you navigate to Class Intercom’s Site(s). 
  2. How Does Class Intercom Collect Information?

Other Information. We may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including:

Class Intercom also uses a web analytics service, currently Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google“). Google Analytics uses cookies and similar technologies to analyze how users use the Domains. The information generated about Domain usage (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to Google in the U.S. This information is used to evaluate visitors’ use of the Domain, compile statistical reports on Domain activity, and provide other services related to the Site and Internet use. Google may also collect information about Domain visitors’ use of other websites. For more information about Google Analytics, or to opt out of Google Analytics, please go to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Disabling cookies. You can typically remove or reject cookies via your browser settings.  In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “settings,” “help,” “tools,” or “edit” facility).  Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings.  Further information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Site(s).  For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device and you may need to log in every time you visit our Site(s).

Pixel tags. We may also use pixel tags (which are also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) on our Site(s) to track the actions of users on our Site(s).  Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on web pages.  Pixel tags measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Site so that we can manage our content more effectively.  The information we collect using pixel tags is not linked to our users’ personal information.

Do Not Track Signals. Some internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that your visit.  We currently do not respond to do not track signals.  To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
