We collect information on the pages you have visited and the contents of those pages, any information you input, your referring URL or IP address, your time of visit and related session information, your requested page, displayed and modified html, Web browser type, user agent, status of request (successful reply), cookies, browser timings, additional API/AJAX requests and responses, query string, mouse movements, page scrolls, clicks, device orientation when applicable, screen size, window size, selections, data entered, and information below. We may associate user identifiable information with the data collect so that we may better improve your experience. We also use this data to better understand Web site usage in the aggregate so that we know what areas of our Web site users prefer or we can improve. This information is stored and can be used for session replay as well as statistical reporting.
We may automatically collect Personal Information from you when you access the Website. We may also collect Personal Information from you through a number of voluntary sources on the Website, such as responses, registrations, reviews, comments, e-mails, postings, messages, photos, or other electronic submissions and communications sent by you to Quantum Metric or the Website. The Personal Information we may collect from you includes, without limitation: domain name and IP address; email-addresses; contact information (including name, address, zip code, and phone number); age; location information; user specific aggregate information on areas of the Website accessed; username and password information for the Website; and other information volunteered by you.
Whenever you use our Site or Quantum Metric Services, we strive to make sure that the Personal Information is correct. If that information is wrong, we give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your Personal Information, we may ask you to verify your identity before making any changes. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. Because we protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, even after information is deleted from the Quantum Metric Services, it may not be immediately deleted from Quantum Metric’s servers.
To request removal of your Personal Information from our Site, Services, blog or social media, contact us at email@example.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
If a User interacts with one of our Customers and the User seeks to access, or correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data or no longer wants to be contacted by one of our Customers, the User should direct its inquiry to the Customer because the Customer is the data controller. If the Customer requests Quantum Metric to remove the Personal Information, we will respond to their request within 30 days.
When acting as a service provider, Quantum Metric has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data or no longer want to be contacted by one of our Clients should direct his query to the Quantum Metric’s Client (the data controller). If the Client requests Quantum Metric to remove the data, we will respond to their request within 30 business days.
We store and process information about you on computers in the United States. Privacy laws local to our servers and computers will apply to information we store about you.
In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Quantum Metric commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact Quantum Metric at firstname.lastname@example.org:
