Privacy Policy

Introduction to Privacy Policy

MATRIXX Software, Inc. respects your right to privacy. You may browse and access information contained in certain parts of this website without providing any personal information. However, in some sections of this website MATRIXX does require you to provide personal information. MATRIXX will also sometimes acquire certain personal information from private individuals in the course of business. To better protect and demonstrate our commitment to the protection of your privacy we have prepared this policy explaining our online information gathering, usage, storage, and disclosure practices (the “Privacy Policy”). This Privacy Policy covers personally identifiable data collected from and about you. “Personally identifiable data” means any data about an identified or identifiable individual that is recorded in any form. For example, if you request one of our newsletters or send an inquiry to us, we will store a record of your request along with your e-mail address. Please note, notwithstanding the foregoing, this Privacy Policy does not apply to personally identifiable data collected by MATRIXX in any other way, including offline.

Information Collection and Use

MATRIXX will collect information from you at several different points on our website including when you request a document, request a brochure, subscribe to our newsletter or register for an event/webinar. MATRIXX is the sole owner of this information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to non-related third parties. We maintain reasonable physical and procedural safeguards to protect personally identifiable data about you from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We restrict access to personally identifiable data about you to those employees we determine need to know that information for us. You should, however, be aware that there is no method of transmitting or storing data of any kind that is completely secure. Although their physical characteristics are different, postal mail, telephone calls, faxes and transmissions over the Internet all present possibilities of loss, misrouting, interception and misuse of the data being transmitted. When we decide what data to seek from or communicate with you, or how to seek or communicate it, we try to strike a reasonable balance between the security of your data and your convenience. As a result, we sometimes use a method of communication that is less secure than some of its less convenient alternatives. An important example of this occurs in the case of e-mail. When we send e-mail to you, we send it in an unencrypted form. We do this because we believe that many of our website users do not currently have the capacity to receive encrypted e-mail. As a consequence, though, if our unencrypted e-mail intended for you were misrouted or intercepted, it could be read more easily than encrypted e-mail. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, please note, we may use and disclose personally identifiable data about you as we reasonably believe is necessary to protect our business; to comply with applicable law; to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of you or others; and to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. In addition, if we believe that you are violating the Company’s Terms of Use or are causing injury through interference or otherwise, we will disclose personal information necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action, or when we are legally required to disclose such information.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored by your web browser containing data sent by a web server. The MATRIXX website site cookies containing only a random session ID in order that consecutive requests from a single user can be associated with each other. This is necessary so that user preferences are correctly remembered. If you reject the cookie, most aspects of the site will still function, though occasional difficulty may be encountered. Cookies also enable us to perform analysis on the way our site is used. This helps us to improve the operation of our site. Google Analytics tracking (and most web tracking software) uses cookies in order to provide meaningful reports about your site visitors. However, Google Analytics cookies do not collect personal data about our website visitors.

Log Files

MATRIXX uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track usage and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Sharing

MATRIXX only shares personal contact information in the case of sub-contracting circulation of our own newsletter and other strictly proprietary uses.

Links

From time to time, this website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that MATRIXX is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to be aware of this when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements and policies of other websites that collect personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by MATRIXX.

Newsletter

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we ask for contact information—your name, company and e-mail address at minimum, with the option to provide additional information.

Brochure Requests

To send a printed brochure, MATRIXX requires contact information—name and postal address at minimum, with the option to provide additional information.

Surveys & Events

From time to time, MATRIXX may request information from users via surveys or event registration. Participation in these surveys or events is completely voluntary and you, therefore, have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and address) and company.

Consent

Except where a business transaction is concerned, MATRIXX will communicate with you only where consent is given. MATRIXX tracks consent to e-mail and conventional post communication and you may review or revoke this consent at any time. Every edition of a newsletter also offers a quick unsubscribe link.

Legitimate Interest (GDPR)

We process personal information for certain legitimate interest purposes, which include:

  • where the processing enables us to enhance, modify or personalise our communications with our contacts
  • to provide online communications which we think may be of interest to you
  • to determine the effectiveness of promotional campaigns and advertising
  • You are free to opt out of any such communications at any time via your MATRIXX Software subscription center.

Notification of Changes

If the Privacy Policy is changed, MATRIXX will note this on the Homepage so you are always aware of what information is collected, how it is used, and under what circumstances, if any, it will be disclosed. Any and all changes will become effective at the time the revised Privacy Policy is posted to our website. If at any point, MATRIXX decides to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, MATRIXX will notify you by e-mail. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.

Your personal data is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people, who have special access rights and are required to keep the information confidential.

Please keep in mind that no website or internet transmission is completely secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal data safe, such as closing your web browser when finished using the website.

Use Of Cookies

We and our third party providers use cookies, clear GIFs/pixel tags, JavaScript, local storage, log files, and other mechanisms to automatically collect and record information about your browsing activities, and use of the Services. We may combine this “activity information” with other personal data we collect about you where permitted by law.

Generally, we use this activity information to understand how our Services are used, track bugs and errors, improve our Services, verify account credentials, allow logins, track sessions, prevent fraud, and protect our Services, as well as for targeted marketing and advertising, to personalize content and for analytics purposes. For more detailed information about these mechanisms and how we collect activity information, see the “Cookies” section above in this Privacy Policy.

Data Retention

We will generally retain the personal data we processed through our website and Services for as long as it is required for purposes for which the data was collected plus the length of any applicable statutory retention period following such activity.

International Transfers

Your personal data may be transferred to -and maintained on- computers located outside of your state, province, country or governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

Where we are legally required to do so, transfers of personal data to parties outside the EU/EEA may be made pursuant to the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses or other legally acceptable mechanisms that ensure an adequate level of protection. Where applicable, you are entitled to receive a copy of the relevant contract (such as Standard Contractual Clauses or Binding Corporate Rules) showing that appropriate safeguards have been taken to protect your personal data during such transfer.

Your Rights

We will take steps in accordance with applicable legislation to keep your personal data accurate, complete and up-to-date. You have the right to request, review, correct, update, suppress, restrict or delete personal data that you have provided to us or if you would like to request to an electronic copy of such personal data for purposes of transmitting it to another company, by sending an email to privacy@matrixx.com specifying your request. We will respond to your request consistent with applicable law.

In your request please let us know what personal data you would like to have changed, whether you would like to have it suppressed from our database, or otherwise let us know what limitations you would like to put on our use of it. Subject to legal and other permissible considerations, we will make every reasonable effort to honor your request promptly or inform you if we require further information in order to fulfill your request. We may not always be able to fully address your request, for example if it would impact the duty of confidentiality we owe to others, or if we are legally entitled to deal with the request in a different way.

Please note that we may need to retain certain personal data for recordkeeping purposes and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting a change or deletion. We may ask you for additional information to confirm your identity and for security purposes, before disclosing the personal data requested to you. We reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law, for instance if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive.

In cases where we rely on your consent for using your personal data, you can withdraw such consent at any time by sending an email to: privacy@matrixx.com.
