Information We Collect and How We Use It

We, and our service providers, collect a variety of information from users as they visit the Web Site. For example, you may provide us with information, including personal information (information that is linked to a specific, identifiable individual, such as email address, and first and last names) (“Personal Information”), demographic information (your age, gender or similar information), and business information (including your employer, and business contact information). If we associate non-personal information with Personal Information we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. We mainly use Personal Information to communicate with you, such as through our email newsletters, to contact you about your request for a demo, to reply to a question, or to respond to your employment application. You may choose to remove yourself from our newsletter and promotional email mailing list (i.e., opt out), by following the link provided in the email received.

In addition, Eze collects non-personally identifiable usage data (“Usage Data”) via cookies, web beacons and similar technologies as further described in the Tracking Technologies section below. Usage Data includes information about our visitors and how they use our Web Site, including browser type, the website you were visiting before you visited the Web Site, time of day and your IP address, your mobile device advertising identifier and similar device identifiers. We use Usage Data for a variety of purposes, including to improve our Web Site and services.

We may also receive information about you from third parties and we may supplement the information we collect with outside records.  We may combine the information we receive from those other sources with information we collect through the Site. In those cases, we will apply this Privacy Policy to the combined information.  

We and our service providers will use information collected through the Eze Web Site to provide features and services, to contact you with information, to process your job application or other request, to serve you advertisements on the Web Site and elsewhere online for internal business purposes, for customer service purposes and as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. 

 

Tracking Technologies

We, and our third-party service providers, may use cookies, web beacons and other tracking technologies to gather Usage Data about visitors and how they use our Web Site. We use this information to improve our Web Site, to target advertisements to users, and for other business purposes. The tracking technologies we use include the following:

Cookies and Local Storage.  “Cookies” and local storage are pieces of information (data files) transferred to a browser when the user visits a site. These technologies are able to store a unique identifier for a device to allow an online service provider to recognize the device whenever the device is used to visit the site. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, remembering you and your preferences, tracking your visits to our web pages, and facilitating your transactions. We use both session and persistent cookies (which remains on your computer after the browser has been closed). You may set up your computer to reject cookies by the privacy settings for your web browser although, in that case, you may not be able to use some of the features on our Web Site. You can find more information about cookies and how they work at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Web Beacons. Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “pixel tags,” “1×1 GIFs,” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or email can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, to count visitors to the Web Site, to monitor how users navigate the Web Site, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular links were actually viewed.

Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Web Site, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Web Site, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.

 

Social Network, Platform Integration, and Third Party Links

The Web Site may contain integration with social networks and other platforms. For example, the Web Site may contain buttons that direct users to our social networking pages (such as Facebook or Twitter), enabling you to “like” or “share” the Web Site's content to other online services, or display tweets or other content from third party platforms on the Web Site, in accordance with the terms of that third party platform. If you choose to “like” or “share” content or to otherwise post information via the Web Site to a third-party website or other online service, that information may be publicly displayed and the third-party website may have access to information about you and your use of our Web Site.

In addition, the Web Site may have links to third party websites. If you click on social networking buttons or third party links, you will be taken to those third parties websites, and your use of those third parties’ websites and platforms are subject to their privacy policies and practices. We are not responsible for the privacy or business practices of any third party.

 

How and When We Disclose Information to Third Parties

Eze may share non-Personal Information, such as Usage Data, Personal Information that has been de-identified (typically using a hash function) and aggregated user statistics, with third parties in our discretion. We do not share Personal Information with third parties for those third parties’ own direct marketing purposes without your express consent, unless you have accessed information on the Web Site about such third party, its products or services, in which case Eze may share your Personal Information with that third party.  We may share the information we have collected about you (including Personal Information) with third parties as disclosed at the time you provide your information, with your consent, as described in this Privacy Policy, and under the following circumstances:

  • with our vendors and third-party service providers to perform certain services on behalf of the Web Site, such as hosting the Web Site or Web Site features, processing employment applications, sending email or other communications, and providing marketing assistance and data analysis;
  • to comply with legal process or a subpoena, or at the request of a governmental entity conducting an investigation, and to protect and defend the legal rights or property of Eze, our Web Site or its users, or any other party;
  • with its affiliates, primarily for business and operational purposes; and
  • in connection with a business transition (such as a merger, acquisition by another company, bankruptcy, or sale of all or a portion of assets), including during the course of any due diligence process; during such business transition your Personal Information will likely be among the assets transferred; by providing your Personal Information, you agree that we may transfer such information to the acquiring entity without your further consent.

In addition, if you apply for a job through the Web Site, Eze may ask you to provide self-identifying information (such as veteran status, gender and ethnicity) in conjunction with laws and regulations enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and other federal, state and local regulatory agencies. Providing such self-identifying information is voluntary, but if you do provide such information, Eze or its service provider may submit that information to the appropriate government or regulatory agencies to fulfill reporting requirements and use that information to defend against employment-related complaints.

 

Third Party Analytics Providers, Ad Servers and Similar Third Parties

We may work with network advertisers, ad agencies, analytics service providers, and other vendors to provide us with information regarding traffic on our Web Site (including pages viewed and the actions taken when visiting our Web Site), to serve, or assist us in serving, our advertisements on other websites, within mobile apps, and elsewhere online, and to provide us with information regarding the use of our Web Site and the effectiveness of our advertisements. For example, if you view or click on an advertisement for Eze or one of our products, our service provider(s) may be able to tell us the advertisement that you clicked on and where you were viewing the advertisement.

These service providers may set and access their own tracking technologies on your device (including cookies and web beacons and may otherwise collect or have access to information about you. Some of these parties may collect Personal Information over time when you visit the Web Site or other online websites and services. We may share Usage Data or de-identified data about visitors with third-party advertising companies, analytics providers and other vendors for analytics and advertising purposes.

We use a variety of service providers to perform advertising services.
