Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so. For
example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our
Services better. We collect information in three ways:
- if and when you provide information to us
- automatically through operating our Services
- from outside sources
Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Information You Provide to Us
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to
us. The amount and type of information depends on the context and how we
use the information. Here are some examples:
Basic Account Information: We ask for basic information
from you in order to set up your account. We require individuals who sign
up to provide an email address which will be used as your login ID.
Transaction and Billing Information: If you subscribe to
Adjourn's Services you will provide additional personal and payment
information that is required to process the transaction and your payment,
such as your name, credit card information, and contact information.
Communications with Us: You may also provide us
information when you respond to surveys, communicate about a support
question, post a question about your site in our public forums,
or sign up for a newsletter. When you communicate with us via form, email,
or otherwise, we store a copy of our communications.
Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
Log Information: Like most online service providers, we
collect information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers
typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique
device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and
time of access, operating system, and mobile network information. We
collect log information when you use our Services.
Usage Information: We collect information about your
usage of our Services. We also collect information about what happens
when you use our Services (e.g., page views) along with information about
your device (e.g., screen size, name of cellular network, and mobile
device manufacturer). We use this information to, for example, provide our
Services to you, as well as get insights on how people use our Services,
so we can make our Services better.
Location Information: We may determine the approximate
location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this
information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our Services
from certain geographic regions.
Information from Cookies & Other Technologies: A cookie
is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer,
and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the
visitor returns. Pixel tags (also called web beacons) are small blocks of
functionality of the Services. For example, a cookie will be placed on
your computer when you select the "Remember me" checkbox during login.
Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if
you connect your account to external services (such as Google) we will
receive information from that service (such as your username and basic
profile information) via the authorization procedures used by that service.
The information we receive depends on which services you authorize, what
options are available, and what functionality our Services are providing by
connecting to the external service.
How and Why We Use Information
Purposes for Using Information
We use information about you as mentioned above and for the purposes listed below:
To provide our Services–for example, to set up and maintain your account,
provide the functionality of our Services, or charge you for any of our paid
To further develop and improve our Services–for example by adding new
features that we think our users will enjoy;
To monitor and analyze trends and better understand how users interact
with our Services, which helps us improve our Services and make them
easier to use;
To monitor and prevent any problems with our Services, protect the
security of our Services, detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and
other illegal activities, fight spam, and protect the rights and property
of Adjourn and others, which may result in us declining a transaction or
the use of our Services;
To communicate with you, for example through an email, about offers and
promotions offered by Adjourn and others we think will be of interest to
you, solicit your feedback, or keep you up to date on Adjourn and our
products (which you can unsubscribe from at any time); and
Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information
A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for
processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is
that our use of your information is based on the grounds that: (1) The use
is necessary in order to fulfill our commitments to you under the applicable
terms of service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer
your account--for example, in order to enable access to our website on your
device or charge you for a paid plan; or (2) The use is necessary for
compliance with a legal obligation; or (3) The use is necessary in order to
protect your vital interests or those of another person; or (4) We have a
legitimate interest in using your information -- for example, to provide and
update our Services; to improve our Services so that we can offer you an
even better user experience; to safeguard our Services; to communicate with
you; to measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising;
to understand our user retention and attrition; to monitor and prevent any
problems with our Services; and to personalize your experience; or (5) You
have given us your consent.
How We Share Information
We do not sell our users’ private personal information. We share information
about you in the limited circumstances spelled out below and with appropriate
safeguards on your privacy:
Subsidiaries, Employees, and Independent Contractors: We
may disclose information about you to our subsidiaries, our employees, and
individuals who are our independent contractors that need to know the
information in order to help us provide our Services or to process the
information on our behalf. We require our subsidiaries, employees, and
information that we share with them.
Third Party Vendors: We may share information about you
with third party vendors who need to know information about you in order
to provide their services to us, or to provide their services to you.
This group includes vendors that help us provide our Services to you (like
payment providers that process your credit and debit card information,
fraud prevention services that allow us to analyze fraudulent payment
transactions, postal and email delivery services that help us stay in
touch with you, customer chat and email support services that help us
communicate with you, registrars, registries, and data escrow services
that allow us to provide domain registration services, those that assist
us with our marketing efforts (e.g. by providing tools for identifying a
specific marketing target group or improving our marketing campaigns),
those that help us understand and enhance our Services (like analytics
providers), who may need information about you in order to, for example,
provide technical or other support services to you. We always strive to
share the least amount of information possible to provide our Services.
Legal and Regulatory Requirements: We may disclose
information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other
To Protect Rights, Property, and Others: We may disclose
information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is
reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Adjourn, third
parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith
belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical
injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay.
Business Transfers: In connection with any merger, sale
of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by
another company, or in the event that Adjourn goes out of business or
enters bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that
is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were
and the party receiving your information may continue to use your
Aggregated or De-Identified Information: We may share
information that has been aggregated or reasonably de-identified, so that
the information could not reasonably be used to identify you.
For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our
Information Shared Publicly
Information that you choose to make public or share with specific users
is–you guessed it–disclosed publicly (or to the specified users). For
example, if you send a meeting summary email to meeting attendees then all
the attendees will be able to see the contents of the email. Public
information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.
Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.
How Long We Keep Information
We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the
information for the purposes for which we collect and use it--which are
described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information--and we are
not legally required to continue to keep it. For example, we keep the web
server logs that record information about a visitor to one of Adjourn's
websites, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating
system, for approximately 30 days. We retain the logs for this period of
time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to Adjourn's websites
and investigate issues if something goes wrong on one of our websites.
Any deleted data may remain on our backups and caches until purged.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect
information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or
destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our
Services for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
You have several choices available when it comes to information about you:
Limit the Information that You Provide: If you have an
account with us, you can choose not to provide the optional account
information, profile information, and transaction and billing information.
Please keep in mind that if you do not provide this information,
certain features of our Services–for example, paid, subscription plans–may
not be accessible.
Opt-Out of Marketing Communications: You may opt out of
receiving promotional communications from us. Just follow the instructions
in those communications or let us know. If you opt out of promotional
communications, we may still send you other communications, like those
about your account and legal notices.
Set Your Browser to Reject Cookies: At this time, Adjourn
does not respond to “do not track” signals across all of our Services.
However, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject
browser cookies before using Adjourn's websites, with the drawback that
certain features of Adjourn's websites may not function properly without
the aid of cookies.
Close Your Account: While we’d be very sad to see you go,
if you no longer want to use our Services, you can close your account.
Please keep in mind that we may continue to retain your information after
closing your account, as described in How Long We Keep Information above--for
example, when that information is reasonably needed to comply with (or
demonstrate our compliance with) legal obligations such as law enforcement
requests, or reasonably needed for our legitimate business interests.
If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the
scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”),
data protection laws give you rights with respect to your personal data,
subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:
- Request access to your personal data;
- Request correction or deletion of your personal data;
- Object to our use and processing of your personal data;
- Request that we limit our use and processing of your personal data; and
- Request portability of your personal data.
You can usually access, correct, or delete your personal data using your
account settings and tools that we offer, but if you aren’t able to do that,
or you would like to contact us about one of the other rights, scroll down
to How to Reach Us to, well, find out how to reach us. EU individuals also
have the right to make a complaint to a government supervisory authority.
How to Reach Us
contact us about any of the rights mentioned in the Your Rights section
above, please contact us at support [at] adjourn.io.
Other Things You Should Know
Adjourn's servers and databases are stored in Canada however, employees may
be located in other countries. As such, the information about you that we
process when you use the Services in the EU may be used, stored, and/or
accessed by individuals operating outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
who work for us, other members of our group of companies, or third party
data processors. This is required for the purposes listed in the How and
Why We Use Information section above.
Ads and Analytics Services Provided by Others
Our Services don't have any ads but we do use analytics services. These
analytics providers may set tracking technologies (like cookies) to collect
information about your use of our Services and across other websites and
online services. These technologies allow these third parties to recognize
your device to compile information about you or others who use your device.
This information allows us and other companies to, among other things,
analyze and track usage, determine the popularity of certain content,
and deliver advertisements that may be more targeted to your interests.
