Desktime does not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is a child under the age of 13.
A Customer may choose to provide to Desktime information which contains personal identifying information (“Customer’s Private Information”), this is treated differently than the Customer’s Public Information which may have been submitted with a request that Desktime post such in the Public Area of the website (such as blog entries, reviews, etc.). Customer’s Private Information may include, but is not limited to: first and last name, username and password, date of birth, gender, preferred geographic areas, etc.; email addresses may be collected and are separately addressed below. A Customer is not obligated to provide Private Information, however the absence of full information may affect the functionality of the Website and the ability to provide Services and, in such circumstances, Desktime may determine that a particular Customer’s registration is insufficient to complete. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Customer shall provide false Private Information. In no event does Desktime sell or otherwise share Customer’s Private Information with third parties.
Desktime has established protocols for safeguarding all Private Information, with both physical and electronic security measures which are, from time to time, analyzed for utility. Although Desktime cannot guarantee that Private Information will never be stolen by third parties, it does use high standards of care to protect Private Information from unauthorized disclosure. Such measures currently include using SSL to ensure that sensitive data is encrypted and storing all customer credit card information with a secure payment gateway provider.
When the Website is accessed by Customers, whether or not registered, certain information will be automatically collected from and information deposited to the Customer’s computer. The items collected do not contain personally-identifiable information and are intended to understand the Customer’s use of the Website, improve its functionality, and allow for customized experience. Types of such information may include:

With regard to cookies, traffic data, and similar information, none contain Customer’s Private Information or any other personally identifying information. Desktime may utilize such non-private information for its own research purposes and may share non-personally identifying information with third parties.
Desktime will utilize a Customer’s contact information, including email and telephone, to provide Services. It may from time to time send to Customers special offers, promotional materials, system upgrade alerts, notices of changes to this Agreement, other information and similar communications. Desktime may, based upon the preferences of Customers, provide email contact information to third parties which may offer services or products of interest to a Customer. All Customers shall have an “opt-out” right from having email contact information shared with third parties. Further, Customers shall have an opt-out right as to promotional and similar non-essential types of communications from Desktime. In the circumstance that a Customer desires to exercise this opt-out, contact may be made to info@Desktimeapp.com. If a Customer desires to receive no communications from Desktime, the registration must be terminated.

In all such cases the contractors shall be bound by the terms of this Agreement, as amended. Under such agreements, including the covenants of this Agreement, Desktime may allow on a limited, need-to-know basis, access by Desktime Contractors to Customer’s Private Information and other information. Desktime will employ the same standards of care to supervise the use thereof by such Desktime Contractors. No other entities other than Desktime Contractors shall be provided such access.
Although rare, Desktime may be required to disclose a Customer’s information when required by law. In such instances, it shall reasonably endeavor to contact the subject Customer of a pending demand for information before compliance. In no event shall Desktime be liable for any consequences of its good-faith compliance in response to any written demand by or through a judicial or governmental agency authority. Should a Customer initiate proceedings to contest a demand, then the Customer shall be responsible for the attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by Desktime in such proceeding. In the event that Desktime is compelled to make the disclosure before a Customer can advised, then Desktime shall provide notice thereof as soon as possible thereafter. Notice shall be sufficient by dispatch to the Customer’s email address of record.
