Use of Collected Information
Report Upgrade collects and uses your information to operate and improve our site and services. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the site easier to use by eliminating the need to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services, and technologies; helping to diagnose technical problems; and other business functions. We may also use your personal information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. We may occasionally send emails to our customers regarding new features and upgrades to our products. Customers are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of their user registration and passwords. We do not send email to non-customers, except in cases where those email addresses are used as points-of-contact when a product or service is ordered, trial licenses are issued, technical support is required, or information is requested.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Except as described in this statement, Report Upgrade will not disclose personally identifying information about our customers to third parties without consent. From time to time, Report Upgrade or contracted third parties may contact customers to gauge satisfaction with our products and/or services or to gather statements about Report Upgrade or our products and services for marketing and promotional purposes (i.e. white papers, case studies, testimonials etc.) on the Report Upgrade website or other public-facing websites. Such statements will not be used without the customer's consent. Finally, we may access or disclose information about you when it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial order, to enforce our agreements of policies governing your use of Report Upgrade products and services, and/or to protect our intellectual property rights.
Security of Personal Information
Report Upgrade is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We employ industry-standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information we collect. For example, when we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. While on a secure page, site visitors will notice a security icon on the bottom of the visitor’s browser.
