This Notice explains how IndustryVault LLC (“IndustryVault”, “we”, “our” or “us”) collect, store, use, disclose and otherwise process information about you in the course of our business, including through the IndustryVault Solutions, the IndustryVault Platform, and the IndustryVault Sites (“Sites”) that link to this Notice (collectively, the “Services”) and through other means such as our and our partner’s events, sales and marketing activities. It also sets out more information about your privacy rights.

This Privacy Notice is referenced in and made a part of the IndustryVault Terms of Service, as well as any Master Services Agreement with IndustryVault (the “Agreement”), and any capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning set forth in the Agreement or Documentation, as applicable. In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Agreement and this Privacy Notice, this Privacy Notice shall govern.

In simple terms, the IndustryVault approach to Privacy is the following.

  • We don’t sell your information - We share information outside of IndustryVault only as permitted by law for our everyday business purposes.
  • Your information is confidential - Our employees and the companies we contract with are obligated to hold your information in the strictest confidence.
  • We protect your information - We have rigorous security procedures and virus/malware software in place.

The following sections provide details regarding our approach.

About Our Services

We provide the Services to our Clients under an agreement with them and solely for their benefit and the benefit of their personnel and other personnel authorized by them as users of the Services ("Authorized Users"). Because the Services are provided through software-as-a-service hosted in the cloud, Authorized Users may access and use the Services from anywhere, subject to IndustryVault’s Agreements with our Clients and any applicable laws.

This Notice does not apply to the content that our Clients and their Authorized Users upload and store in the Services ("Client Content"). In those circumstances:

(a) IndustryVault is processing Client Content on behalf of a Client and that Client is responsible for the collection and use of your data; and

(b) that Client’s privacy notice will apply to the Client’s collection and use of such Client Content.

In such circumstances, you should refer to their privacy notice and direct any queries to them. The Client’s Agreement with IndustryVault governs our use of and processing of Client Content in these circumstances.

Sharing of Personal Information

We do not share your personal information with third parties other than as follows:

  • When you instruct us to do so;
  • With your consent, for example, when you agree to our sharing your information with other third parties for their own marketing purposes subject to their separate privacy policies;

  • With third party business partners, such as distributors, and/or referral partners, who are involved in providing services to our prospects and/or Clients, to fulfill product and information requests and to provide Clients and prospective Clients with information about IndustryVault and its products and services. From time to time, we may engage in joint sales or product promotions with select business partners. If you purchase or specifically express an interest in a jointly-offered product, promotion or service, we may share relevant personal information with those partner(s). Where you have given your consent to do so, these business partners may send you marketing communications about their own products and services. Please be aware that we do not control our business partners' use of such information. Our partners are responsible for managing their own use of the personal information collected in these circumstances. We recommend you review the privacy notices of the relevant partner to find out more about their handling of your personal information.
  • Where it has been de-identified, including through aggregation or anonymization;
  • To comply with laws or to respond to lawful requests and legal process, to protect our rights and property and that of our agents, Clients, members and others including to enforce our agreements, policies and terms of use or in an emergency to protect the personal safety of any person;
  • In order to protect any individual’s vital interests, but only where we believe it necessary in order to protect the vital interests of any person; and
  • In connection with or during negotiation of any business transfer, merger, financing, acquisition, or dissolution transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets to another company.

Security of Your Personal Information

We take all reasonable and appropriate steps to protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information which may include: physical access controls, encryption, internet firewalls, intrusion detection and network monitoring depending on the nature of the information and the scope of processing. IndustryVault staff who may have access to your information are required to keep that information confidential.

Your Information Choices and Changes

You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from us by following the instructions in those emails. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your accounts or our ongoing business relations.

Data Retention and Deletion

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements, to enforce our agreements or comply with our legal obligations). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing, until deletion is possible. When processing Client Content on behalf of our Clients, we will retain Client Content for as long as our Client instructs us to and/or as required by applicable law.

Changes to this Notice

We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. If we make any changes to this Notice, we will change the Last Updated date above.
