Networks on Candex
A "Network" is defined by your company or organization's email domain. For example, all users who sign up with a "yourcompany.com" email address would be part of the yourcompany.com network. To join a Network, you must confirm your email address. Only the users in a Network can see briefing feeds from other users in a Network.
A “Basic Network” is a Network that has not been upgraded by the organization whose email domain defines that network.
An "Enterprise Network" is a Network that has been upgraded by the organization whose email domain defines that network. An organization may upgrade its Basic Network to an Enterprise Network at any time.
Companies who upgrade to an Enterprise Network may take administrative control of that network to i) see the data and activities of the users on that network including data and activity which was posted prior to the upgrade of the network to an Enterprise Network, ii) grant certain users in a Network permission to see (and the right to grant permission to see) briefings by the tags selected to organize those briefings, and iii) implement security or privacy policies in addition to those described in this privacy statement.
With respect to a Basic Network, references to “you” or “your” in this privacy statement refer to the individual users of the Services. With respect to Enterprise Networks, references to “you” or “your” in this privacy statement refer to the organization that is our customer. Individual users of Enterprise Networks should direct privacy related inquiries to the organization that provides them access to the Services.
Collection of Information
Customer Data. Customer Data is all the data, including all text, sound, software or image files that you provide, or are provided on your behalf, to us through your use of the Services. We make no claim of ownership in your Customer Data. Except as provided in this privacy statement or described in your agreements, we only use Customer Data to provide and enhance the Services. We don’t share your Customer Data with advertisers, or with anybody else except in the very limited circumstances described in the Sharing Your Information section below.
Contact Data. Contact Data includes name, address, phone number, profile information, email address, title, location, and other contact information that we may collect through your administration of the Services and use of the Services by you and others. Contact Data you provide as part of your Candex profile is available to other users of your Network, to users you communicate with, and to other Networks where there are users that are or have been a participant in a briefcase with you. The Service encourages people to send invitations to others who are not yet on Candex. If you choose to provide us with email addresses of others, we will use that information to enable you and other users to invite those people to join the appropriate Network.
Usage Data. We may use statistical data, analytics, trends and usage information derived from your use of the Services (“usage data”). Usage data includes, for example, aggregated quantitative information about active users, activity, topics, and groups. Some ways we use the usage data include operating, improving and personalizing the Services and our offerings, as well as other products and services. Except to provide reports to you or others in your organization, we do not disclose usage data in a way which is identifiable to your organization or users in your Candex Network.
Support Data. Support Data is the information we collect when you submit a support request or run an automated troubleshooter, including information about hardware, software, and other details related to the support incident, such as: contact or authentication information, chat session personalization, information about the condition of the computer and the application when the fault occurred and during diagnostics, system and registry data about software installations and hardware configurations, and error-tracking files.
Support may be provided through phone, e-mail, or online chat. We may use Remote Access (RA), with your permission, to provide support. We use Support Data in the same way as we use your information, as described in this privacy statement. Additionally, we use it to resolve your support incident and for training purposes.
Other Data. We may also collect other information about you which does not identify you personally, such as the type of browser and operating system you use; your Internet protocol addresses (including any host name or geographic information associated with these addresses); and information related to your computer or device system configuration.
