Privacy Policy

Effective date of current Privacy Policy: May 22, 2018.

Welcome to Pipemode! We take your privacy extremely seriously and would like to describe how we collect, use and protect your information when you access our website(s), platform, applications, products, services (collectively, the “Services”).

What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services. We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Information in order to make our Services available to you, to contact you, and to better understand how you use the Services. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under 18, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 18, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 18 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at privacy@pipemode.com.

Will Pipemode ever change this Privacy Policy?

We’re constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice in the Pipemode platform on https://app.pipemode.com, and/or by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. Your use of the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted will be considered to indicate your acceptance of the changes.

What Information does Pipemode collect?

Information You Provide to Us. We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. When you create a new account to use the Services we will solicit your consent to connect your Google, LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter account to your new Pipemode account (using Social Platform’s OAuth authentication method), thereby providing us with access to your Google, LinkedIn, Facebook or Twitter account, including but not limited to email and contacts. Although the OAuth authentication provides broad access to your Social Media account, Pipemode accesses and stores a subset of data from your Social Media account, including name, email address, contacts, or company domain directory, to provide you with our Services.

In keeping with standard online privacy practices, users should not include any highly sensitive information (such as social security numbers, financial information, or “protected health information” (as that term is defined by the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act)) in any communication or activities in the Pipemode platform so that such data does not transfer to our servers (even if only temporarily). For the use of our Services in a HIPAA compliant environment, please see “Industry-based Compliance” section below.

In addition, we collect Personal Information you submit to us, for example by completing a form on www.pipemode.com. In that case, we may communicate with you, for example by calling you at the phone number you provide, sending you promotional email offers, or emailing you about your use of the Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps enhance our engagement with you and generally improve our Services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by sending an email to privacy@pipemode.com.

Information Collected Automatically

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognise your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features. We may use this data to customise content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns, and generally to improve the Services. For more information, please visit our Cookie Policy.

Information Collected From Other Websites and Do Not Track Policy

Through cookies we place on your browser or device, we may collect information about your online activity after you leave our Services. Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve the Services and customise your online experience. Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioural advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Do Not Track signals are set on a browser-by-browser basis, so you must set them on every browser you use if you do not wish to be tracked.

Third Party Analytics Services

We use third party analytics services in order to better understand user engagement with the Services. When a user browses or uses the Services, these third party analytics services may collect the user’s IP address, browser type, and approximate location (based on the IP address). They may also use web logs or web beacons and may set and access cookies on your computer or other device. In order to refine our understanding of user engagement, we use a third-party consent management solution provided by Quantcast. By entering our website(s), users have the choice to explicit opt-in for or opt-out from certain third-party tracking technologies associated to Pipemode’s website.

Does Pipemode share Personal Information?

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. However, we may share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this section:

Agents and vendors: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them, including in some cases the Personal Information you have provided to us, in order to make the Services available to you. For example, we may use third party hosting providers or software developers to help implement and maintain the Services. However, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Business Transfers: If we are involved in a reorganisation, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.

Protection of Pipemode and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our applicable Terms of Service and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Pipemode, our employees, our users, or others.

Is Personal Information about me secure?

We will use very diligent efforts to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

What Personal Information can I access?

Because the Personal Information you share with us via the Social Network’s OAuth authentication process originates in your Social Media account, if you want to modify that Personal Information you may do so through your Social Media profile. Alternatively, you can email privacy@pipemode.com for access to, or to update or delete, your Personal Information that Pipemode has collected.

Industry-based compliance

Pipemode can be effectively deployed within a HIPAA-compliant environment. We have implemented reasonable and accurate safeguards around your electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI), including the specific safeguards of the HIPAA Security Rule. We implement all types of controls - administrative, physical, and technical - against all types of risks - natural, environmental, and technical.

Transfer to the U.S. or Other Countries

We currently use datacenter facilities located in the United States and Europe. Your information will be stored and processed in the United States and Europe or other countries where we decide to maintain datacenter facilities in the future. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of information outside of your country, even if your country has more rigorous data protection standards. For any Personal Information that may be transferred from the European Economic Area, please see the EU Residents section below.

EU Residents

If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”). Please see our EU Privacy Policy available here in the section below.

What if I have questions about this policy?

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our privacy policies, please don’t hesitate to contact us at privacy@pipemode.com, and we will try to resolve your concerns.

A list of such vendors, third party service providers and agents can be found here: https://pipemode.com/legal/subprocessors.

We also share Personal Data when necessary to complete a transaction initiated or authorised by you or provide you with a product or service you have requested. In addition to those set forth above, these parties also include:

  • Other users (where you post information publicly or as otherwise necessary to effect a transaction initiated or authorised by you through the Services)

  • Social media services (if you interact with them through your use of the Services)

  • Third party business partners who you access through the Services (e.g. third party applications)

  • Other parties authorised by you

We also share information with third parties when you have given us consent to do so (as indicated at the point such information is collected).

  • Comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process, including from law enforcement or other government agencies

  • Protect us, our business or our users, for example to enforce our Terms of Service, prevent spam or other unwanted communications and investigate or protect against fraud

  • Maintain the security of our products and services

If we choose to buy or sell assets, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party, and we would share Personal Data with the party that is acquiring our assets. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.

How Long Do We Retain Your Personal Data?

We retain Personal Data about you for as long as you have an open account with us and for 3 years after you close your account. In some cases we retain Personal Data for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation. Afterwards, we retain some information in a depersonalised or aggregated form but not in a way that would identify you personally. However, user signup data (your name, your email address, and the fact that you were a Pipemode user) may be retained in third-party analytics services beyond closure of your account, unless you request that your data be deleted.

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device which may include “cookie” information. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognise your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. For more information on our cookies and their expiration times, please review our Cookie Policy.

What Security Measures Do We Use?

We seek to protect Personal Data using appropriate technical and organisational measures based on the type of Personal Data and applicable processing activity. For example, Pipemode is continuously implementing and updating administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your information against unauthorised access, loss, destruction or alteration. Some of the safeguards we use to protect Personal Data are firewalls, data encryption, and information access controls. For additional information please visit: https://pipemode.com/security.

What Rights Do You Have Regarding Your Personal Data?

You have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data, including those set forth below. For more information about these rights, or to submit a request, please email privacy@pipemode.com. Please note that in some circumstances, we may not be able to fully comply with your request, such as if it is frivolous or extremely impractical, if it jeopardises the rights of others, or if it is not required by law, but in those circumstances, we will still respond to notify you of such a decision. In some cases, we may also need to you to provide us with additional information, which may include Personal Data, if necessary to verify your identity and the nature of your request.

  • Erasure: You can request that we erase some or all of your Personal Data from our systems.

  • Withdrawal of Consent: If we are processing your Personal Data based on your consent (as indicated at the time of collection of such data), you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note, however, that if you exercise this right, you may have to then provide express consent on a case-by-case basis for the use or disclosure of certain of your Personal Data, if such use or disclosure is necessary to enable you to utilise some or all of our Services.

  • Portability: You can ask for a copy of your Personal Data in a machine-readable format. You can also request that we transmit the data to another controller where technically feasible.
