Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy describes how CTC Technologies, Inc. collects, uses, and discloses information associated with an identified or identifiable individual (referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Personal Data”) and what choices you have around this activity. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Effective date: May 1, 2024

When we refer to “CTC”, we mean CTC Technologies, Inc. 

Applicability of This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy applies to CTC’s website and other interactions (e.g., customer service inquiries, user conferences, etc.) you may have with CTC. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, then do not access or use the Services or Website or any other aspect of CTC’s business. For the avoidance of doubt, this is the only privacy policy that applies to CTC.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any third-party applications or software that integrate with the Services through the CTC platform (“Third-Party Services”), or any other third-party products, services or businesses who will provide their services under their own terms of service and privacy policy. In addition, a separate agreement governs delivery, access and use of the Services (the “Customer Agreement”), including the processing of data such as messages, files or other content submitted through Services accounts (collectively, “Customer Data”). The organization (e.g., your employer or another entity or person) that entered into the Customer Agreement (“Customer”) controls its instance of the Services and any associated Customer Data. 

Information We Collect And Receive

CTC will collect and receive information through operating the Services and Website, and through other interactions with CTC. Such information will include Customer Data and other information and data (“Other Information”) in a variety of ways:

  • Customer Data. Customers or individuals granted access to a Workspace by a Customer (“Authorized Users”) routinely submit Customer Data (such as messages, files or other content submitted through Services accounts) to CTC when using the Services.
  • Other Information. CTC also collects, generates and/or receives the following categories of Other Information:some text
    1. Workspace and account information: To create or update a Workspace account, you or our Customer (e.g. your employer) supply CTC with an email address, phone number, password, domain, and/or other account set up details. In addition, Customers that purchase Services provide CTC (or its payment processors) with billing details such as credit card information, banking information, and/or a billing address.
    2. Usage information:some text
      • Services metadata. When an Authorized User interacts with the Services, metadata is generated that provides additional context about the way that an Authorized User uses the Services. 
      • Log data. As with most website and technology services delivered over the Internet, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use our Website or Services and record it in log files. This log data may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the address of the web page you visited before using the Website or Services, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, and your language preferences.
      • Device information. CTC collects information about devices accessing the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and crash data. 
      • Location information. We receive information from you, our Customers and other third-parties that helps us approximate your location. We may, for example, use a business address submitted by your employer (who is our Customer) or an IP address received from your browser or device to determine approximate location to assist with localization or for security purposes.
    3. Cookie information: CTC uses a variety of cookies and similar technologies in our Website and Services to help us collect Other Information. 
    4. Third-Party Services information: A Customer can choose to permit or restrict Third-Party Services and CTC can receive personal data from such Third-Party Services. Typically, Third-Party Services are software that integrate with our Services, and a Customer can permit its Authorized Users to enable and disable these integrations. CTC may also develop and offer CTC applications that connect the Services with a Third-Party Service. Once enabled, the provider of a Third-Party Service may share certain information with CTC. Authorized Users should check the privacy settings and notices in these Third-Party Services to understand what data may be disclosed to CTC. When a Third-Party Service is enabled, CTC is authorized to connect and access Other Information made available to CTC in accordance with our agreement with the provider of the Third-Party Service and any permission(s) granted by our Customer (including, by its Authorized User(s)). We do not, however, receive or store passwords for any of these Third-Party Services when connecting them to the Services. 
    5. Contact information: In accordance with the consent process provided by your device or other third-party API, any contact information that an Authorized User chooses to import (such as importing an address book to find coworkers, contacts or calendar from a device or API), forward or upload to the Services (for example, when sending emails to the Services) is collected when using the Services.
    6. Third-Party data: CTC may receive data about organizations, industries, lists of companies that are customers, Website visitors, marketing campaigns and other matters related to our business from parent corporation(s), affiliates and subsidiaries, our partners, or others that we use to make our own information better or more useful. This data may be combined with Other Information we collect and might include aggregate-level data, such as which IP addresses correspond to zip codes. Or it might be more specific: for example, how well an online marketing or email campaign performed.
    7. Additional information provided to CTC: We also receive Other Information when submitted to our Website or in other ways, such as responses or opinions you provide if you participate in a focus group, contest, activity or event, feedback you provide about our products or services, information you provide if you apply for a job with CTC, enroll in a certification program or other educational program hosted by CTC or a vendor, request support, interact with our social media accounts or otherwise communicate with CTC.

CTC does not control how a Customer or any third party chooses to share or disclose Information.

    • Customers may also provide their Authorized Users with the ability to adjust the audience and visibility of certain Customer Data. 
  • Collaborating with Others. Information, such as an Authorized User’s profile and organizational information, may be shared. In many instances, CTC includes either administrator controls or user controls, depending on the use case, with respect to external collaboration.

  • Customer access. Owners, administrators, Authorized Users, and other Customer representatives and personnel may be able to access, modify, or restrict access to Information. 
  • Third-Party service providers and partners. We may engage third-party companies or individuals as service providers or business partners to process Information and support our business. These third parties may, for example, provide virtual computing and storage services, assist CTC with verifying Owners and Customers, or we may share business information to develop strategic partnerships with Third-Party service providers to support our common customers. In this respect, depending on the Third-Party service provided, CTC may share your Information.
  • Third-Party Services. A Customer may enable, or permit Authorized Users to enable, Third-Party Services. We require each Third-Party Service provider to disclose all permissions for information accessible through the Services, but we do not guarantee that they do so. When Third-Party Services are enabled by a Customer or an Authorized User, CTC may share Information with Third-Party Services.

If you attend an event or webinar organized by CTC, we may share your profile and organizational information with the event or webinar sponsors when you register, have your badge scanned, or join a breakout room.

In these circumstances, your information will be subject to the sponsors’ privacy statements.
