Please read this statement carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your Information and how we will treat it.
This User Policy covers the processing of personal data gathered when you are using or accessing the Launchmetrics Cloud ("Personal Information"). This User Policy also covers our treatment of any Personal Information that our business partners (third parties like usage tracking tools, communicating tools and feature improvement tools of each Service and the Launchmetrics Cloud) share with us or that we share with our business partners.
This User Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including but not limited to any third party websites, services and applications ("Third Party Services") that you elect to access through a specific Service or to individuals that we do not manage or employ. While we attempt to facilitate access only to those Third Party Services that share our respect for your privacy, we cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those Third Party Services. We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access.
In addition, a separate agreement governs delivery, access and use of the Services (the "Service Provider Agreement") and the processing of customer data (data related to the Service Provider Agreement, "Customer Data").
For CredentialsSM Users, a separate agreement governs delivery, access and use of the Service (the “EULA”).
The information we gather enables us to personalize, improve and continue to operate the Launchmetrics Cloud. In connection with certain aspects of the Launchmetrics Cloud, we may request, collect and/or display some of your Personal Information. We collect and receive Personal Information and other information in different ways:
You acknowledge that this information may be personal to you, and by creating an Account on the Launchmetrics Cloud and providing Personal Information to us, you allow others, including us, to identify you. Your Account Information is completely isolated from the ones of other Users Accounts. Only different Users of the same Customer account will have access to each other's information.
An Account can either be created by us or a User on your end, for this you will provide us information that could be Personal Information, such as your:

In the course of using the Launchmetrics Cloud or any of the Service you may also provide us with personal information about third parties: contacts, that we do not hold on our industry lists and which you may ask us to process on your behalf; or for Credentials Users, information regarding Registrants that we do not hold and which you may ask us to process on your behalf.
In this case, Launchmetrics is a Processor (a “Service Provider” under the CCPA) of your Personal Information and you, as a User, are the Controller (a “Business” under the CCPA) as we store for you information about your contacts or information of the Registrant, but you decide and are responsible for what happens to this data.

The content of this section is aimed solely at providing California residents with relevant information under the California Consumer Protection Act (“CCPA”), and may be subject to change. It must be construed in addition and not in lieu of the full User Policy.
The CCPA, which is effective as of January 1, 2020, regulates how we handle personal information of California residents and gives California residents certain rights with respect to their personal information.
When it provides the Services, Launchmetrics is both a “Business” and a “Service Provider” under the CCPA.
If you are a Launchmetrics customer, under the CCPA you are considered a “Business” and Launchmetrics is the “Service Provider” in most cases. As such, we are responsible for processing the Personal Information our Service captures on your Account and is stored on our servers.
Although we do not sell personal information in exchange for any monetary consideration, the CCPA defines a sale in a way that may include allowing third parties to receive certain combined Personal Information such as, depending on how you use the Services, when we are sharing device information (such as browser type and version, operating system, preference settings, unique device IDs and language and other regional settings) and identifiers (names, job titles, IP address, email address), commercial information (such as record of the Services purchased or demos requested), usage information and Internet activity such as browsing history (clicks, scrolling, browsing times and load times) or app usage, cookie information and customer feedback with website analytics companies and providers of customer relationship management, consulting, email, product feedback services and security and other operations vendors.
We do share Personal Information as necessary for certain business purposes, as defined by the CCPA (Cal. Civ. Code 1798.140(d)) and as described above and in the section “How Do We Use the Data Collected?” of this User Policy.
California residents may opt out of the sale of their Personal Information. While Launchmetrics does not sell personal information in exchange for any monetary consideration, we do share personal information for other benefits that could be deemed a “sale,” as defined by the CCPA. We wish to provide you with control over how your Personal Information is collected and shared. If you would like to opt out of Launchmetrics' use of your Information for such purposes (when considered as a sale), you may do so within the Services.
In the preceding 12 months, we have disclosed for a business purpose to one or more third parties the following categories of personal information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer:
Under the CCPA, you have the following rights:
Under California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information that we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to the following address: 115 E 23rd Street, Floor 6, New York, NY 10010, USA. The request should attest to the fact that you are a California resident, and provide a current California address.
If you have additional questions about this section or how to exercise your rights under the CCPA, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The CCPA allows California consumers to designate an authorized agent to exercise their rights under CCPA. If we receive a request from an agent, then we have the right to verify that you indeed want to take the action requested by the agent and will do so by contacting you directly.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Users have the right to ensure:
We will maintain complete and accurate records and information to demonstrate our compliance with our obligations under this User Policy and also for audits conducted by you or on your behalf.
To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at email@example.com or by mail to Launchmetrics, 115 E 23rd St., Fl 6, New York, NY 10010 USA - Attention: Privacy. We will respond to your request to change, correct, or delete your information within a reasonable timeframe and notify you of the action we have taken.
For the avoidance of doubt, when European Union laws cease to apply to the United Kingdom (the “UK”) upon the UK's withdrawal from the European Union and until such time as the UK is deemed to provide adequate protection for personal information (within the meaning of the GDPR) then to the extend we process (or have others processing) any Customer Data or Personal Information protected by the GDPR, we shall process such data in compliance with the SCCs or any applicable alternative transfer mechanism implemented in accordance with the related section below.
Launchmetrics will retain User Data depending on the type of information, and the purpose for which it is used. In general, we will retain your Personal Information for the length of time reasonably needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this User Policy (including for as long as needed to provide you with the Services), unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by applicable law. And in any case in accordance with Users instructions and use of Services functionality.
We retain your Account Information for as long as your employer’s Account is active and thereafter unless your employer requests deletion of a particular User.
We are a global organisation, as such, we may share information about you within Launchmetrics offices and with affiliates and transfer it to countries in the world where we do business in connection with the uses identified above and in accordance with this User Policy.
In some cases, we use suppliers located in various countries to collect, use, analyse, and otherwise process information on its behalf. It is our practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with our policies and applicable laws and in a country the European Commission or a European data protection supervisory authority has confirmed, by decision, offers an adequate level of data protection.
For transfers of personal information outside of the EEA, we are making sure that any of these transfers are supported by the strict legal compliance of our suppliers to the GDPR. When necessary, compliance can be achieved if suppliers use an approved certification mechanism.
We also offer EU Standard Contractual Clauses (also called Model Clauses), to meet the GDPR requirements for our customers who operate in the E.U.
If you would like to review or change your Personal Information, we will deal promptly and appropriately with any inquiries unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. However, if your requests are deemed to be excessive or complex a small fee may be charged and a time-period extension may apply.
You can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or directly reach out to your Account manager.
Should you ever decide to delete your Account, you may do so by emailing email@example.com or your Account manager. If you terminate your Account, any association between your Account and information we store will no longer be accessible through your Account.
Please note that we will need to verify that you have the authority to delete the Account, and activity generated prior to deletion may remain stored by us for the period of time needed for us to conduct audits, comply with (and demonstrate compliance with) legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Launchmetrics will occasionally update this User Policy to reflect user and customer feedback about the Services changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting. Launchmetrics encourages you to periodically review this User Policy and associated Notices to be informed of how we are protecting your information and check for any changes. We have the sole discretion to modify this User Policy and the Notices. If we make changes that materially alter your privacy rights, we will provide additional notice, such as via email or through the Services or the homepage of the Launchmetrics Cloud.
