Privacy Policy

Last Updated: January 1, 2020

Channeltivity, LLC (“Channeltivity”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to the Channeltivity website and software platforms and governs data collection and usage. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain how Channeltivity collects, uses, and discloses personal information and to provide important disclosures required under the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), and other applicable laws.

COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Channeltivity is a data processor of information shared between our customers (manufacturers and vendors) and their reseller channel partners. The types of personal data stored on our platform are those between a vendor, a reseller partner, and the vendor’s end user. As such, the data stored and processed by Channeltivity is primarily simple contact information consisting of an individual’s name, company name, position at company, email, and phone number. All data stored in Channeltivity’s software platform by our customer is their data and is used for the purpose of conducting business with contracted reseller partners.

When you sign up to demo or purchase Channeltivity products, Channeltivity collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home and/or work address and/or telephone number. Channeltivity also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.  Through your use of Channeltivity’s website and services, Channeltivity collects commercial information, such as transaction information and purchase history, and internet and network activity and information, such as browsing history and interactions with Channeltivity’s website and software. There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by Channeltivity. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by Channeltivity for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the Channeltivity website.

In the event that you contact Channeltivity for customer support through the website, we may also request that you provide additional user information relevant to the support requested by you. Users are under no obligation to provide such information. However, Channeltivity cannot guarantee that Channeltivity can provide customer support in the event that relevant information related to the use of our products or services is withheld. Channeltivity may retain communications relating to customer support, and/or information drawn from such communications, for statistical and/or reference purposes.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through Channeltivity public message boards or forums, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: Channeltivity does not read your private online communications with others.

Channeltivity encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Channeltivity so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. Channeltivity is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Channeltivity family of websites or the use of your information by such outside websites.

USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Channeltivity collects and uses your personal information to operate the Channeltivity website and deliver the services you have requested. Channeltivity may also use your personal information to inform you of other products or services available from Channeltivity and its affiliates. Channeltivity may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services.

Channeltivity keeps track of the websites and pages you visit within Channeltivity, in order to determine what Channeltivity services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Channeltivity to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Channeltivity does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Channeltivity may disclosure your information to companies and individuals who perform business functions on Channeltivity’s behalf. Such functions include hosting the website, analyzing data, and providing other support services.  Channeltivity may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, Channeltivity may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to Channeltivity, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

USE OF COOKIES

The Channeltivity website uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Channeltivity pages, or register with Channeltivity site or services, a cookie helps Channeltivity to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Channeltivity website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Channeltivity features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Channeltivity services or websites you visit.

In addition to using cookies and related technologies as described above, we also may permit certain third-party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to users and to collect and use other data about user activities on our websites and/or services (e.g., to allow them to tailor ads on third-party services). These companies may deliver ads that might also place cookies and otherwise track user behavior. These companies may use information about user behavior in order to provide customized advertisements across various services and products. In the course of providing these services, products or placing advertisements, these third-party companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on any of our websites and/or services and on third party websites. Each of these companies uses this cookie information according to their own privacy and security policies. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out of the DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page or you may opt out of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.

Retention of Information

Channeltivity retains your information for so long as we have an ongoing legitimate business or legal need to do so. Additionally, you have the ability to unsubscribe from, or opt-out of, our subscriber list for our automated emails at any time, and to disable cookies and other tracking functions through your computer or browser.

ABILITY TO LIMIT USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

If you provide Channeltivity with personal information, you have the following rights with respect to that information:

  • To review the personal information that you have supplied to us;
  • To request that we correct any errors, outdated information, or omissions in information that you have supplied to us;
  • To request that your information not be used to contact you;
  • To request that your information be removed from any solicitation list that we use;
  • To request that your information be deleted from our records; and
  • To opt out of being solicited by this website or third parties.

If you request that your personal information be deleted from our records or be modified in any way, there may be a brief delay in our processing that request, while we verify that the request is valid and originates from you as opposed to an unauthorized third party. If you request that your information be deleted, we reserve the right to terminate and/or limit your access to the Channeltivity website.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us at support@channeltivity.com.

DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS

Channeltivity honors Do Not Track signals, and Channeltivity does not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

No method of safeguarding information is 100% secure. Channeltivity uses a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Channeltivity secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Potential Liability for Onward Transfers to Third Parties

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable consumer request twice within a twelve-month period.

Channeltivity cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if Channeltivity cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  Thus, your verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows Channeltivity to reasonably verify you are the person about whom Channeltivity collected personal information or an authorized representative of such person.
  • Describe your request in sufficient detail that allows Channeltivity to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to your request.

Channeltivity will acknowledge receipt of your request and advise you on how long Channeltivity expects it will take to respond if Channeltivity is able to verify your identity.  Channeltivity will work to process your request within 45 days pursuant to the CCPA.  If Channeltivity needs additional time in order to process your request, Channeltivity will provide you with an explanation for the delay. If Channeltivity is unable to honor your request, Channeltivity will advise you of this fact and provide the reason why.

Channeltivity will not provide social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, account passwords or security questions and answers, or any specific pieces of information that could lead to unauthorized access, result in identity theft, fraud, or impose an unreasonable risk to data or systems and network security.

Channeltivity does not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded.  If Channeltivity determines that your request warrants a fee, Channeltivity will inform you of the reason for this decision and provide a cost estimate before completing your request.

In addition to the above, California’s “Shine the Light” law, California Civil Code § 1798.83, grants California residents the right to request from a business with whom the California resident has an established business relationship, once a year, certain information with respect to the types of personal information that the business shares with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes and the identities of the third parties with whom the business has shared such information during the immediately preceding calendar year.
