Privacy Policy

SS8 is committed to protecting your privacy and ensuring you have a positive experience on our website. This policy outlines our personal information handling practices for both online and offline data. If you give us personal information, we will treat it according to this policy.

This policy covers the SS8 corporate website and is applicable worldwide.

Collection of Your Personal Information

We will always tell you before we collect any Personal Information and inform you of the purpose of the collection. “Personal Information” is any information that can be used to identify an individual, and may include, but is not limited to, name, email address, postal or other physical address, credit or debit card number, title, occupation, and other information required to provide a service, deliver a product, or carry out a transaction you have requested. Some of the reasons we collect your Personal Information include:

  • Registration for an account
  • Requesting service and support for our products or services
  • Registration to attend a seminar
  • Registration to membership programs or newsletter subscriptions

Uses of Your Personal Information

We will only use your Personal Information in the way we specified when it was collected. We will not subsequently change the way your Personal Information is used without your consent. Some of the ways we may use your Personal Information include:

  • To keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, software upgrades, system enhancements, special offers, and other information. This may occasionally include information from other technology companies about products and services that can add value to your SS8 products.
  • To provide support and assistance for our products and services, including the provision of security patches.
  • To provide the ability to create personal profile areas and view protected content.
  • To provide customer feedback and support.
  • To support recruitment inquiries.
  • To understand more about you, so we can personalize newsletters and websites to your preferences. For example, allow you the opportunity to request specific information on products and services that may be of interest.
  • To allow you to forward information to another individual such as a friend or co-worker. SS8 does not store the personal information of the third party. We collect the information for the sole purpose of sending a one-time email. If you choose to use our referral service to inform a colleague or friend, we will only ask for a contact name and email address.
  • To meet contract obligations.

Accessing and Updating Your Personal Information

We need your help in keeping the Personal Information you have shared with us accurate and up to date. Please notify us of any changes to your Personal Information.

If you are a registered user, you may make these updates yourself online via SS8 User Management. You may also make these updates or request deactivation of your SS8 account by sending an email to: register@SS8.com

Unsubscribing

Every email newsletter includes instructions on how you can unsubscribe from that particular mailing.

You may also unsubscribe from SS8’s newsletters by sending an email, including your name, and the title of the marketing material you wish to unsubscribe from to: register@SS8.com

Non-Personal/Anonymous Information Collection

In some instances, SS8 may collect non-personal (aggregate or demographic) data through cookies, web logs, and web beacons. This information is used to better understand and improve the usability, performance, and effectiveness of the website. Please read the “Cookies” section below for more information.

Sharing Your Personal Information

We do not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties for marketing purposes unless you have granted us permission to do so.

We may share your Personal Information within SS8 or any of our worldwide subsidiaries for purposes of data processing or storage.

We may also share your Personal Information with business partners in order to provide a requested service or transaction, including processing orders, hosting event and seminar registration and providing customer support. We only provide these third parties with the minimum amount of Personal Information necessary to complete the requested service and the third parties are not permitted to use your Personal Information except for limited purpose of completing the requested service.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your Personal Information and other related information, if necessary. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
We may collect and possibly share Personal Information and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of SS8’s terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

While navigating SS8’s web site you may be directed to content or functionality that is hosted by a third-party supplier, not on SS8.com. When information is collected on behalf of SS8 exclusively, SS8’s privacy policy will be referenced on the site and will govern how your information is used. For other, non-SS8 sites, the site owner’s privacy policy will be referenced. It is SS8’s practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with SS8’s privacy and security policies.

We will ask for your consent before we use or share your information for any purpose other than the reason you provided it or as otherwise provided by this policy. In order to let us know your preferences, we will require an action on your part, such as checking the appropriate option, to indicate your consent.

Security of Your Personal Information

SS8 is committed to protecting the Personal Information you share with us. We utilize a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

When we transfer sensitive personal data (for example, telephone numbers, addresses, etc.) over the Internet, we protect it using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.

While we strive to protect your Personal Information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit.
We recommend you to take every precaution in protecting your Personal Information when you are on the Internet. For example, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers when creating passwords, and make sure you use a secure browser.

A cookie cannot read personal data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites; indeed, the only Personal Information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself.. You may browse most of SS8’s website without accepting cookies from SS8; however, some website functionality may be lost by disabling cookies on your computer.

Data Retention

SS8 will not retain your Personal Information longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

Linked Websites

Our websites may provide links to other third-party websites which are outside our control and not covered by this policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) sites you visit.

Transfer of Personal Information

We may transfer your Personal Information to SS8 in the US, to any SS8 subsidiary worldwide, or to third parties acting on our behalf for the purposes of processing or storage.

Your California Privacy Rights

Residents of the State of California, under a new provision of the California Civil Code, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed Personal Information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an Opt-out or Opt-in choice for use of your Personal Information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

SS8 qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive privacy policy and provides you with details on how you may either Opt-out or Opt-in to the use of your Personal Information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your Personal Information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices you must send a request to: register@SS8.com

Questions or Comments?

Should you have any privacy-related questions or comments related to this privacy policy, please send an email to: register@SS8.com

Policy Updates

SS8 may amend this privacy statement from time to time, and at any time. We will post a notice whenever this privacy statement is materially changed. Your continued use of the SS8 website after any change will signify and confirm your assent to those changes.
