Information You Provide to Us. We collect information you provided directly to us. For example, we collect information when you complete our online contact form or if you create a Hyland Profile. This information may include Personal Data. The Personal Data you might choose to submit through the Sites or at Hyland Events may include your:
*Although users can submit credit card or other payment card information to pay for a product or service through the Sites, Hyland does not receive your payment card information. Payment card information is transmitted directly to a third-party payment card processor through an internet connection secured by industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology. The payment card processor then communicates to Hyland whether your payment has cleared, but does not provide your payment card information to Hyland.
** Hyland does not control the content that you post to Hyland Community or other Sites; in some cases, such content may be made available to other Hyland customers or partners. You should carefully consider any content you post.
*** Hyland is not responsible for information you upload via the Sites to evaluate or demo Hyland’s propriety software products. When evaluating Hyland’s propriety software products via the Sites, you should not upload Personal Data or other confidential information.
Data Analytics. The Sites use third-party web analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to help us analyze how visitors use the Sites. These services track information about visitors, including IP addresses, browser types, referring pages, pages visits and time spent on particular pages. We use this information to improve our products and services, to market our products and services to you, and to customize your experience when using the Sites. To learn more about how Google Analytics may use information collected through the Sites, click here.
We may link individually identifiable information that you provide voluntarily (e.g., your name and contact information) to the information that the Sites collect automatically (e.g., data analytics).
Do Not Track Setting. We track your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. We also track your activities on the Sites. Additionally, we use web beacons to track your visits so that third party service providers can display Hyland advertisements to you on other websites based on your activities while visiting the Sites. We may allow third party service providers to use tracking devices to collect the same types of information for the same purposes as we collect your information. You may implement restrictions on tracking, such as plug-ins or browser settings. In that case, some features of the Sites, for example, personalization or authentication, may not work as designed.
Your web browser may have settings that allows you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites or use online services. Like many websites, the Sites are not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from browsers. To learn more about “Do Not Track” signals, click here.
Information Third Parties Provide About You. If you attend a Hyland Event sponsored by a third party, that third party may provide Hyland with your information, including Personal Data, such as your name, e-mail address, and phone number. Additionally, at times, Hyland posts advertisements on third party websites. These third parties typically inform Hyland if a user clicks on our advertisements.
We may use the information, including Personal Data, we obtain through the Sites or Hyland Events, as applicable, for a number of purposes, including:
In addition, we may use the Personal Data we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide notice at the time of collection.

We do not rent, lease, or sell your Personal Data to third parties.
We maintain appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards designed to protect the Personal Data that we obtain in accordance with this Policy.

Cookies: A cookie is a unique identifier that is placed and stored on a computer when it is used to visit a website. Cookies may be used for various purposes, including to track user preferences or web pages visited while using a website, to identify the number of unique visitors to a website, and to verify whether or not a visitor is a repeat visitor.
Web Beacons (also known as tracking pixels): Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as “Internet tags” or “clear gifs” that may be embedded in web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used to monitor the number of visitors to a website, to track how users navigate a website, or to count how many emails were actually opened or specific pages or links were actually viewed.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about a user’s interactions with a website. Typically, the script is temporarily downloaded onto a computer from the host website’s server (or the server of a third party service provider), and is active only while the visitor is connected to the website, then deleted or deactivated thereafter.
