When expressing an interest in obtaining additional information about the Services or registering to use the Services, StormSource requires individuals to provide the Company with personal contact information, such as name, company name, address, phone number, and email address (“Required Contact Information”). When purchasing the Services, StormSource may require individuals to provide the Company with financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, credit card number, and the scope of use within the organization for the Services (“Billing Information”). StormSource may also ask for additional information, such as company annual revenues, number of employees, or industry (“Optional Information”). Required Contact Information, Billing Information, and Optional Information are referred to collectively as “Data About StormSource Clients.”
As Clients and Visitors navigate the Company’s Web sites, StormSource may collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies, (“Web Site Navigational Information”). Web Site Navigational Information includes standard information from the Web browser (such as browser type and browser language), Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions taken on StormSource’s sites (such as the StormSource Web pages viewed and the links clicked).
The Company uses Data About StormSource Clients only to perform the Services requested. Other than the uses to perform Services, StormSource does not use or share Data About Clients for any purpose unless required to do so by law.
Internally, StormSource employees may be required to access Data About StormSource Clients in order to do their jobs. These employees are limited in number, and are committed to StormSource privacy policies set forth herein. All such employees execute non-disclosure agreements, which provide explicit confidentiality protections. Any employee who violates such privacy and/or security policies is subject to possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.
The Company may use Data About StormSource Clients for limited informational and marketing purposes about the Services. For example, the Company may use Data About StormSource Clients to provide system updates/notices and to discuss interest in the Services and related products and add-ons. This type of informational use is made only to the primary account and billing contacts of the Client, as applicable. Other than limited identification statements such as “Powered by StormSource”, no other type of informational or marketing communication or contact is made or displayed.
StormSource uses credit card information solely to check the financial qualifications of prospective Clients and to collect payment for the Services.
StormSource uses Web Site Navigational Information to operate and improve the Company’s Web sites. The Company may also use Web Site Navigational Information alone or in combination with Data About StormSource Clients to provide aggregated information about the Company.

This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information that may be collected on the Company’s Web sites and how this information may be used.
If a user of the Services has chosen to identify himself/herself to StormSource, the Company uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the Company to uniquely identify such users. Each time such user logs into the Services, a session cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to the user’s account is placed on that user’s browser. These session cookies allow the Company to uniquely identify you when the user is logged into the Services and to process online data transactions and requests. Session cookies are required to use the Services.

For example, data center providers may be required for use of the Services. Likewise, Clients may elect to utilize web services and integrations requiring the sharing of data to facilitate use of the Services.
StormSource does not share, sell, rent, or trade any Data About StormSource Clients with third parties for their promotional purposes.
StormSource may use a third-party service provider to facilitate and manage credit card processing. These credit card service providers are not permitted to store, retain, or use Billing Information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on the Company’s behalf.
StormSource reserves the right to use or disclose information provided if required by law or if the Company reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect the Company’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
StormSource uses robust security measures to protect Data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of Data. When the Services are accessed using the Internet, Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology protects Client Data using both server authentication and data encryption. These technologies help ensure that Client Data is safe, secure, and only available to the Client to whom the information belongs and those to whom the Client has granted access. Clients are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of their StormSource usernames and passwords.
StormSource may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Web sites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages.

Clients and Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform friends about the Company’s Web sites. When using the referral program, the Company requests the friend’s name and email address. StormSource will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Web sites. StormSource does not store this information.
If StormSource posts a list of Clients and/or testimonials on the Company’s Web sites that contain information such as Client names and titles. StormSource obtains the consent of each Customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.
