  • when you visit our website or community website (“Websites“)
  • when you contact us for assistance
  • when we connect with you as a prospective customer or as a customer

  • when an account or profile is created on your behalf in one of our SaaS or On-Premise products (typically by your employer)
  • when you attend customer or prospective customer events
  • when you meet us at third party events, gatherings or meetups

Information Collection & Processing

We collect and process information which either you provide to us, we collect passively, or the information is provided by third party sources. We use this information to enable us to deliver better products and services.

Profile & Account Information

We collect information about you and your company in the provision and usage of Interact Services. This information generally includes:

  • Profile information such as first name, surname, email, job title
  • Preferences information such as notification and marketing preferences
  • Company & Billing information such as billing address, headquarters address and place of work
Content

We may incidentally collect your personal information as part of the content we allow you or other users to create, upload or store in the process of using our services.

The Services include the Interact products you use, where we collect and store content that you post, send, receive and share. This content includes any information about you that you may choose to include.

Information from other sources

We receive information about you from other Service users, from third-party services, from our related companies, social media platforms, public databases, and from our business and channel partners. We may combine this information with information we collect through other means described above. This helps us to update and improve our records, identify new customers, create more personalized advertising and suggest services that may be of interest to you.

Other

We collect personal data that you submit to us via our website or third-party tools including, for example, when applying for a job via our website or requesting support in relation to one of our services.

Analytics & Logs

We collect analytics and log information when you use our websites or services to help us improve our product and services. Analytics information also consists of data we collect as a result of running queries against Content created by a user of our SaaS and On-Premise services for the purposes of generating Usage Data. For example, we query the Content to determine the average number of content areas per customer.

Though we may encounter sensitive or Personal Information as we compile Usage Data from Content across user instances, this is simply a by-product of our efforts to understand broader patterns and trends. In particular, it is not a concerted effort by us to examine the Content of any particular customer.

Legal bases for processing (for EEA users)

If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws.  The legal basis depends on the Services you use and how you use them.

  • You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose;
  • We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation; or
  • If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.  Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Services.

Using the information we collect

How we use the information we collect depends in part on which Services you use, how you use them, and any preferences you have communicated to us.  Below are the specific purposes for which we use the information we collect about you:

  • to provide the Services and personalize your experience
  • for research and development
  • to communicate with you about the Services
  • to market, promote and drive engagement with the Services

Notice to End Users

Many of our products are intended for use by organizations. Where the Services are made available to you through an organization (e.g. your employer), that organization is the administrator of the Services and is the Data Controller under GDPR, and is responsible for the accounts and/or Service sites over which it has control. If this is the case, please direct your data privacy questions to your administrator, as your use of the Services is subject to that organization’s policies. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of an administrator, which may be different to this policy.

Contact Us

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, please contact us. If you are an employee of an Interact customer and have a query or would like us to stop processing your information, please contact your employer in the first instance.
