QualNimbus may use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and Visitors’ usage of the Company’s Web sites and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Web site tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, QualNimbus may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company’s Web sites.

QualNimbus also collects IP addresses from Customers whey they log into the Services as part of the Company’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.
Social Media Features
Do Not Track
Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Web sites’ visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting. QualNimbus does not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Company’s Web sites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. QualNimbus takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
5. Public forums, refer a friend, and customer testimonials
QualNimbus may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Web sites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. QualNimbus is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.
Customers and Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform friends about the Company’s Web sites. When using the referral program, the Company requests the friend’s name and email address. QualNimbus will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Web sites. QualNimbus does not store this information.
QualNimbus posts a list of Customers and testimonials on the Company’s Web sites that contain information such as Customer names and titles. QualNimbus obtains the consent of each Customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.

Without limiting the foregoing, QualNimbus may also share Data About QualNimbus Customers and Data About QualNimbus Attendees with the Company’s service providers to ensure the quality of information provided, and with third-party social networking and media Web sites, such as Facebook, for marketing and advertising on those Web sites.

QualNimbus does not control our business partners’ use of the Data About QualNimbus Customers we collect, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may opt not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.

QualNimbus uses a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use Billing Information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on the Company’s behalf.
QualNimbus reserves the right to use or disclose information provided if required by law or if the Company reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect the Company’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
7. International transfer of information collected
To facilitate QualNimbus’s global operations, the Company may transfer and access Data About QualNimbus Customers and Data About QualNimbus Attendees from around the world, including from other countries in which the Company has operations.

QualNimbus will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided in the QualNimbus Terms of Service, or as may be required by law. In accordance with the QualNimbus Terms of Service, QualNimbus may access Customer Data only for the purpose of providing the Services or preventing or addressing service or technical problems or as may be required by law.
QualNimbus uses robust security measures to protect Data About QualNimbus Customers and Data About QualNimbus Attendees. Because the Company uses the Services to maintain Data About QualNimbus Customers and Data About QualNimbus Attendees, this information, which is stored in the Services, is secured in the same manner.
12. Mobile applications
Without limiting the generality of this Privacy Statement, in addition to information gathered through its Web sites or submitted to its Services, QualNimbus may obtain information through applications (“Mobile Applications”) that Customers or their authorized individuals (“Users”) download to, and run on, their mobile devices (“Devices”). Mobile Applications provided by QualNimbus may obtain information from, or access data stored on, Users’ Devices to provide services related to the relevant Mobile Application. For example, a Mobile Application may: access a camera on a User’s Device to enable the User to upload photographs to the Services; access the call history on a User’s Device to enable the User to upload that information to the Services; access calendar information on a User’s Device to enable the User to match meeting attendees with contacts submitted by the User to the Services; access the geographic location of a User’s Device to enable the User to identify contacts submitted by the User to the Services who are nearby; or access contact information on a User’s Device to enable the User to sync contact information between the information that is stored on the User’s Device and the information that is submitted to the Services. Information obtained to provide Mobile Application services may include information obtained in preparation for anticipated updates to those services. Mobile Applications may transmit information to and from Devices to provide the Mobile Application services.
Mobile Applications may provide QualNimbus with information related to Users’ use of the Mobile Application services, information regarding Users’ computer systems, and information regarding Users’ interaction with Mobile Applications, which QualNimbus may use to provide and improve the Mobile Application services. For example, all actions taken in a Mobile Application may be logged, along with associated information (such as the time of day when each action was taken). QualNimbus may also share anonymous data about these actions with third party providers of analytics services. In addition, if a User downloads a QualNimbus Mobile Application after clicking on a third-party mobile advertisement for the Mobile Application or for QualNimbus, the third-party advertiser may provide QualNimbus with certain information, such as the User’s Device identification information, which QualNimbus may use to track the performance of its advertising campaigns.
Customers may configure QualNimbus Mobile Application services, and the information accessed or obtained by the Mobile Application on a User’s Device may be affected by the Customer’s configuration. In addition, if a Customer purchases more than one Service from QualNimbus and its affiliates, a Mobile Application may be designed to interoperate with those Services; for instance, to provide a User with access to information from any or all of those Services or to provide information from a User’s Device to any or all of those Services. Information accessed or obtained by the Mobile Application on a User’s Device may be accessible to the Customer and its organization, depending on the intended functionality of the Mobile Application.
Third parties may obtain information from, or access data stored on, Users’ Devices to provide services associated with any third-party Mobile Applications that Users download, install, use, or otherwise interact with over a QualNimbus platform. QualNimbus’s Mobile Applications may also contain links or integrations to other Mobile Applications provided by third parties. Third parties’ use of information collected through third-party Mobile Applications is governed by the privacy statements of such third parties. The Company encourages you to review the privacy statements of third-party providers of Mobile Applications to understand their information practices.
Notices and contractual terms related to a particular Mobile Application may be found in the End User License Agreement or relevant terms of service for that application. The Company encourages you to review the End User License Agreement or relevant terms of service related to any Mobile Applications you download, install, use, or otherwise interact with to understand that Mobile Application’s information practices. The Mobile Application’s access to information through a User’s Device does not cause that information to be “Customer Data” under QualNimbus’s Terms of Service with the Customer or under this Privacy Statement, except as follows: To the extent that a User uses a Mobile Application to submit electronic data and information to a Customer account on our Services pursuant to the Customer’s Terms of Service with QualNimbus (or a similar agreement that governs the Customer’s subscription(s) to QualNimbus’s Services), that information constitutes “Customer Data” as defined in such agreement, and the provisions of that agreement with respect to privacy and security of such data will apply.
13. Changes to this Privacy Statement
QualNimbus reserves the right to change this Privacy Statement from time to time with no prior notice. Any notice that QualNimbus chooses to provide will be through the Company’s Web sites. Continued use of the Company’s Web sites constitutes acceptance of this Privacy Statement.
