DataFinch Technologies Privacy Policy


DataFinch Technologies, a Georgia corporation (hereinafter “DATAFINCH,” “we,” or “us”) strives to provide the very best products available for those who work with children and adults with special needs. To that end, and to offer you products and services available on the DATAFINCH websites at www.datafinch.com and other DATAFINCH branded URLs (the “DATAFINCH Websites”), and through “apps” available for download through the iTunes store, DATAFINCH may request information from you and automatically collect information about your use of DATAFINCH products and/or services (defined in the Datafinch Terms and Conditions of Use).


Further, DATAFINCH may request information from other third party services, if such services are activated via DATAFINCH. This policy (the “DATAFINCH Privacy Policy”) describes our online privacy practices, what personal information we may collect from you, and what we will and will not do with that information.


  1. How we collect and use personal information


    When you register for a DATAFINCH account, access a free trial, or purchase DATAFINCH’s products and/or services, we may ask you for certain personal information such as an email address, postal address, age, company or school affiliation and residence. When creating a DATAFINCH account, using a DATAFINCH Software Application, DATAFINCH Service and/or DATAFINCH Websites, we will automatically receive information about your use of the application, service and/or website, including personal information such as media that you access, queries you make, date and time of your request, your Internet protocol address, performance of your network and computer, your browser type, language and identifying information, your operating system and/or application version.


    We may use your personal information (i) to provide the products and services that you have purchased or requested (including the display of customized content and advertising), (ii) to communicate with you concerning your account, customer service issues and DATAFINCH products and services, (iii) to personalize and improve DATAFINCH software applications, the DATAFINCH Service and the DATAFINCH Websites, (iv) to ensure the technical functioning of our products and services, (v) to develop new products and services, and (vi) to protect the copyright-protected content of the DATAFINCH Service (e.g. by limiting access to the DATAFINCH Service content to users with a DATAFINCH account).

  2. Sharing information with others


    Unless otherwise given explicit approval in advance and except as outlined in Section 1 above and except with respect to DATAFINCH affiliates (being other companies controlled by or under common control with us), we will only share your personal information as is necessary to:


    1. provide you with the products and/or services that you have purchased or requested;


    2. enforce the terms and conditions of the DATAFINCH Terms and Conditions of Use;


    3. comply with laws, regulations and/or any applicable court orders or to respond to or comply with litigation matters or other legal process;


    4. allow for a change of ownership of DATAFINCH (including, but not limited to, an acquisition by or merger with another company) and related transfer of all personal information to the new owner in which case any information remains protected in accordance with this DATAFINCH Privacy Policy;


    5. allow advertising audits and/or analysis measuring the size and composition of the group of users that have listened to and/or viewed an advertisement or other promotional information;


    6. allow us to use a third party to perform surveys measuring your experiences and use of our services (not permitting the third party to use your personal information for any other purpose);


    7. allow us to share aggregated statistics about use of the DATAFINCH software applications and/or the DATAFINCH Service with parties with whom we do business. We will not, however, share personally identifying information with these parties or any other third parties, except under the narrow circumstances described above.


      In some further cases, access to certain products and services may also require you to provide your personal information to a third party, such as our business partners. In such cases, this will be stated during the registration process, in the terms of use or in a similar manner. The third party’s use of such information is governed by that party’s privacy policy, and DATAFINCH’s use is governed by this DATAFINCH Privacy Policy. Please visit the privacy policy of our business partners to ensure that you understand how they use personal information. If you do not wish for such use of your personal information, do not register for the applicable product or service.

  3. Transfer of personal information to other countries


    DATAFINCH processes personal information on a number of servers. We therefore reserve the right to transfer and process your personal information on a server outside the United States. However, we will use our best efforts to do so in accordance with this DATAFINCH Privacy Policy and applicable law.


  4. Security

We understand the value and need for privacy connected to the information provided to DATAFINCH. As such, we take a number of steps to keep your personal information secure from unauthorized access. For example, we ask you to use a unique and strong password and not to share this information with anyone. In addition, we use encrypted servers and transmissions to limit access to the systems that store your personal information. Further, we respect and comply with applicable laws and regulations on data protection. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your user access name and related password. While we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
