We at Breakout respect the privacy of users of our website, www.breakout.chat
We may update this Policy at any time. Any changes to the Policy will become effective upon the date of our posting of the revised Policy on the Service. If we make a material change to the Policy, we will post a notice which will remain on the Site’s home page for three months thereafter to alert you to the change. If you visit the Service following the effective date of the revised Policy, you will be deemed to have accepted the Policy’s updated terms.
1. What types of Information Does Breakout Collect?
The information we collect through the Service includes “Personally Identifiable Information” (or “PII”), which is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your first and last name, email address, phone number, and company affiliation, if any. We collect this information when you voluntarily provide it, such as when you sign up to receive updates, tips, and other information that may be of interest to you.
The Site also automatically collects information about you that generally is not PII (“Non-PII”) but relates to your use of the Site. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity. Non-PII is “passively” collected from you through browser navigational tools, such as cookies, that can recognize your visits by identification of the computer or device that you are using to access the Site. Although we do not ourselves set cookies, we use Google Analytics to help us track usage of the Site. Google Analytics may not respond to a “Do Not Track” browser signal. You can learn more about how Google Analytics uses data at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners
2. What types of Information Does Breakout Collect?
a. PII. We may use the PII that we collect about you for any or all of the following purposes:
i. Responding to Requests. To respond to your questions or requests, such as to sign you up for a subscription, send you updates or daily check-ins you have requested, or schedule a demo for you.
ii. Providing Information. To provide you with information regarding our resources or services that may be of interest to you.
iii. Our Own Business Purposes. For our own business purposes, such as to help us improve the Service, including by requesting feedback from you, and for related internal purposes such as data analysis and internal audits.
b. Other Information. Through Google Analytics, we use non-PII to help us improve the Service, such as by analyzing Site visitor trends, including usage of certain pages or functions on the Site. We may also use non-PII for other purposes, but if any such use involved combining the non-PII with any data so that it became identifiable to you or another person, we would then treat it as PII in accordance with this Policy.
3. With Whom Does Breakout Share PII Collected Through the Service?
a. Operational Partners and Third Party Service Providers. We share PII with unaffiliated third parties who provide us with services, such as the designer of the Service and others who assist us with technology, data compilation and analysis, distribution of emails, or similar services. We do not share PII with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.
b. Acquirers or Assignees. In the event of a reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Breakout or its assets, we may transfer any and all information that we collect from Service users to the acquiring party or assignee.
c. Entities Entitled Under Law. We may disclose PII as we believe to be appropriate in the following circumstances: (i) when required by applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (ii) to comply with legal process (iii) to respond to requests from public and government authorities; (iv) to enforce the terms and conditions for use of the Service, including this Policy; (v) to protect and defend our rights and property; (vi) to protect the interests of Breakout or others; and (vii) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. We have no obligation to notify you of such disclosures, except as required by applicable law.
4. How Do We Maintain and Protect PII Collected Through the Service?
a. Accuracy. We aim to keep any PII we maintain current and accurate. If you would like us to correct, update or remove PII about you that you previously provided to us, please contact us using the “Questions?” pop-up form in the bottom right-hand corner of the Site’s home page.
b. Security. We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure.
c. Data Retention. We will retain PII about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy.
5. Collection of PII by Others
a. Tracking on Our Site. As noted above, we use Google Analytics to collect information about Site visitors in order to provide analytics services that help us improve the Service. We do not currently allow others to collect the PII of visitors to our Site by tracking individuals’ usage of our Site and other websites over time.
6. Use of the Service by Children.
The Service is not directed to children under the age of thirteen (13), and we do not knowingly collect PII from any children under age 13. If we become aware that we have received any PII from a child under age 13, we will delete the PII.
7. International Transfers of Information.
By using the Service, you are deemed to understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of your PII in the United States, with the awareness that the laws of the United States may not provide as much protection for PII as the laws of certain other countries or territories.
