When we talk about “HuddleUp,” “we,” “our,” or “us” in this policy, we are referring to HuddleUp Technologies, Inc., the company which provides the Services. When we talk about the “Services” in this policy, we are referring to our online workplace productivity tools and platform (including, but not limited to, our website). Our Services are currently available for use via a web browser or applications specific to your mobile device.
By accessing or otherwise using our Services, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this privacy statement. If you are using the Services on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you hereby represent and warrant that you have the authority to consent to this privacy statement (and the Terms of Service applicable to the Services) on behalf of the company or other legal entity. To the extent this privacy statement conflicts with any existing agreement between the company or other legal entity you represent and HuddleUp, this privacy statement shall control and supersede such other terms and conditions with regard to the subject matter of this privacy statement. Additionally, if you are using the Services on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you are nevertheless individually bound by this privacy statement even if your company has a separate agreement with us. As used in this privacy statement, “you” and “your” refer to you individually and the company on behalf of which you are entering into this privacy statement.
Content and information submitted by users to the Services is referred to in this policy as “Customer Data.” As defined in our User Terms, Customer Data may may be controlled by the Organization (in the case of Organization Content) or by the User (as in the case of User Content); in either case, the Organization or User is our “Customer”. Where HuddleUp collects or processes Customer Data, it does so on behalf of the Customer. Here are some examples of Customer Data (but keep in mind they are only examples and there may be others): messages (including those in bulletins), pictures, videos, edits to messages or deleted messages, and other types of files. A user may also choose to enter information into their profile, such as first and last name, role, a photo and a phone number.
If your telephone number is in our system (either by your own account creation or by invitation from a Customer, from HuddleUp, or from another user), you are a “user.” If you are using the Services by invitation of a Customer, whether that Customer is your employer, another organization, or an individual, that Customer determines its own policies regarding storage, access, modification, deletion, sharing, and retention of Organization Content which may apply to your use of the Services. Please check with the Customer about the policies and settings it has in place.
HuddleUp may also collect and receive the following information:
Cookies are small text files sent by us to your computer and from your computer or mobile device to us each time you visit our website or use our desktop application. They are unique to your account or your browser. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.
Some cookies are associated with your account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in and which teams you are logged into. Other cookies are not tied to your account but are unique and allow us to carry out site analytics and customization, among other similar things. If you access the Services through your browser, you can manage your cookie settings there but if you disable some or all cookies you may not be able to use the Services.
HuddleUp sets and accesses our own cookies on the domains operated by HuddleUp and its corporate affiliates. In addition, we use third parties like Google Analytics for website analytics. You may opt-out of third party cookies from Google Analytics on its website. We do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance.
We use your information to provide and improve the Services.
HuddleUp may access and use Customer Data as reasonably necessary to (a) provide, maintain and improve the Services; (b) to prevent or address service, security, technical issues or at a Customer’s request in connection with customer support matters; (c) as required by law and (d) as set forth in our agreement with the Customer or as expressly permitted in writing by the Customer.
We use other kinds of information in providing the Services. Specifically:
This policy is not intended to place any limits on what we do with data that is aggregated and/or de-identified so it is no longer associated with an identifiable user or Customer of the Services.
Customer provides us with instructions on what to do with Customer Data. A Customer has many choices and control over Customer Data. For example, Customer may provision or deprovision access to the Services, enable or disable third party integrations, manage permissions, retention and export settings, transfer or assign organizations and roles, share group chats and messages, or consolidate organizations or chats with other organizations or chats. These choices and instructions may result in the access, use, disclosure, modification or deletion of certain or all Customer Data.
If you have any questions about your information, our use of this information, or your rights when it comes to any of the foregoing, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, the browser you use may provide you with the ability to control cookies or other types of local data storage. Your mobile device may provide you with choices around how and whether location or other data is collected and shared. HuddleUp does not control these choices, or default settings, which are offered by makers of your browser or mobile device operating system.
HuddleUp may share Customer Data in accordance with our agreement with the Customer and the Customer’s instructions, including:
HuddleUp may share other information as follows:
HuddleUp may share or disclose Customer Data and other information as follows:
We may disclose or use aggregate or de-identified information for any purpose. For example, we may share aggregated or de-identified information with our partners or others for business or research purposes like telling a prospective HuddleUp Customer the average number of messages sent within a HuddleUp organization in a day or partnering with research firm or academics to explore interesting questions about workplace communications.
HuddleUp takes security seriously. We take various steps to protect information you provide to us from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store, and the current state of technology.
Our Services are not directed to children under 13. If you learn that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without consent, please contact us.
We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we will post any changes on this page. If you continue to use the Services after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy.
