In the development of QuickPivot’s policies and procedures, we adhere to the major privacy principles and frameworks in the United States (US), European Union (EU), Switzerland, and other countries. Specifically, we adhere to the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. A description of these programs may be found at the following link: https://www.privacyshield.gov. We also adhere to the principles of the US-Swiss Safe Harbor program. A description of this program may be found at the following link: http://2016.export.gov/safeharbor/swiss/.
We self-certify compliance with:
1. Scope of this Privacy Statement
1.1 Links to Non-QuickPivot Websites
QuickPivot sites or services may provide links to third-party applications, products, services, or websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the QuickPivot site. QuickPivot does not control those third party sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from QuickPivot’s practices.
We may also provide social media features that enable you to share information with your social networks and to interact with QuickPivot on various social media sites. Your use of these features may result in the collection or sharing of information about you. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and settings on the social media sites with which you interact to make sure you understand the information that may be collected, used, and shared by those sites.
2. Collection of Personal Information
QuickPivot collects and uses personal information to manage your relationship with QuickPivot and better serve you by personalizing your experience and interaction with QuickPivot. Such collection is done with appropriate notice and consent, along with filings with data protection authorities, where required.
QuickPivot may collect your personal information as part of your access and use of this website or web-based applications, during conversations or correspondence with QuickPivot representatives, when you purchase products or services, or complete an online registration or application form.
QuickPivot may collect personal information from you in connection with:

- Profile creation and user verification for online services
- Information requests or complaints
- Marketing, newsletter, or support subscriptions
- Contest entries or survey participation
- Job applications

The types of personal information QuickPivot may collect from you includes:
- Business contact information, such as name, address, telephone number, and email address. In some cases, your business contact data may be provided to QuickPivot by a designated entity within your business or enterprise (such as a member of your IT department)
- Other unique information such as user IDs and passwords, product functionality, product and service preferences, contact preferences, educational and employment background, and job interest data

In addition to the information you provide, QuickPivot may also collect information during your visit to an QuickPivot website, web-based application, or a website “powered by” another company on behalf of QuickPivot, through our Automatic Data Collection Tools, which may include cookies and embedded Web links.
These tools collect certain traffic information that your browser sends to a website, such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived. They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, unique device identifier, clickstream behavior (i.e., the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with QuickPivot websites or “powered by” websites) and product information. QuickPivot may also use some of these Automatic Data Collection Tools in connection with certain emails and communications sent from QuickPivot and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.
QuickPivot also collects information from publicly or commercially available sources that it deems credible. Such information may include your name, address, email address, preferences, interests, and demographic/profile data. The information QuickPivot collects from its public or commercial sources may be used along with the information QuickPivot collects when you visit QuickPivot’s sites.
Where necessary, QuickPivot may also use information provided by you or your employer, together with information from publicly available and other online and offline sources, to conduct due diligence checks on business contacts as part of QuickPivot’s information security program.
QuickPivot may also collect some information that is not personal information because it does not identify you or anyone else. For example, we may collect anonymous answers to surveys or aggregated information about how users use our websites, products or services.

From time to time, QuickPivot participates in marketing initiatives with other companies, including websites powered by another company on behalf of QuickPivot. As part of these initiatives, certain QuickPivot services and marketing communications may be delivered at the same time as those from other companies. Some of these services and communications offer you the option to share personal information with both QuickPivot and the other companies participating in these initiatives.
Except as described in this Statement, QuickPivot will not share the personal information you provide to QuickPivot with non-QuickPivot third parties without your permission, unless to: (i) respond to duly authorized information requests of police and governmental authorities; (ii) comply with any law, regulation, subpoena, or court order; (iii) investigate and help prevent security threats, fraud or other malicious activity; (iv) enforce/protect the rights and properties of QuickPivot or its subsidiaries; or (v) protect the rights or personal safety of QuickPivot, our employees, and third parties on or using QuickPivot property when allowed and in line with the requirements of applicable law.
Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, QuickPivot decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its business. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is QuickPivot’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
5. Privacy for Children and Minors
QuickPivot does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 18, and does not target its websites to children under this age. We encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online and mobile activities and interests.

To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your data.
8. Keeping your Personal Information Secure
QuickPivot takes seriously the trust you place in us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, QuickPivot utilizes appropriate physical, technical, and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect and process. QuickPivot retains data only as required or permitted by national and local laws and while it has a legitimate business purpose.
