If you have a complaint as to our use of your information, you may file a complaint with us, the California Attorney General, any other governmental agency, and/or a judicial body.
A complaint may be submitted directly to us by utilizing the contact information contained in this Policy.
We employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service ("Service Providers"), to provide the Service on our behalf, to enhance the user experience of our Service, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.
These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
If you do not wish to use either of the third-party providers listed below who enable notification services, please disable any notification services on your account.
Twilio, WhatsApp and email-to-SMS providers
We use third party provider Twilio to deliver Email and Text messages in relation to our Services. For some clients, we also offer the use of WhatsApp as a convenient replacement for text messaging. In the US, users can select carrier provided email-to-SMS gateways in the account setup.
Apple App Store and Google Play
Our LogTag® Online Service allows members of your team with administration privileges to purchase authorization codes using a credit card. LogTag North America uses Stripe, Inc ("Stripe"), a financial services and 'software as a service (SaaS)' company to provide this functionality to you. To link a purchase transaction to your user account, LogTag North America must store a unique identifier that links your team name to Stripe's user ID. This identifier is generated the first time you invoke the Payment Portal via the Service and is permanently linked to your user account.
Although the user experience appears seamless, all financial transactions are completely conducted inside the Stripe Payment Portal. Payment data related to financial transactions is not stored by us, although the result of the transaction is processed by the Service, including, but not limited to, the date of the transaction and what you purchased. For example, we cannot see any credit card details, but will be able to determine the number of activation codes you purchased, when you purchased them and what they were allocated to.
Although we constantly monitor Stripe's performance as a Payment Services Provider, the financial transactions are solely the responsibility of Stripe, Inc., and any personal information you provide to Stripe is governed by Stripe's Privacy Statement and Terms & Conditions, which you can access on their website at https://stripe.com/privacy.
We have disabled the option to save credit card information in the Stripe Payment Portal, as this would allow other users, to whom you have granted access to your team, to purchase authorization codes on your behalf.
If you do not agree to the terms published by Stripe, Inc, please do not use credit card payments to purchase authorization codes.
Other third-party Data
You may ask us to store credentials for accessing third-party services on your computer. We use these credentials to allow you to seamlessly transfer data generated by our services to third-party service information storage and communication providers. In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect and use your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. We still recommend you read their respective privacy policies. Third-party services include, but are not limited to the following:
- Connection to online services such as SMTP servers, FTP servers or proxy servers
- Security certificates for the purposes of connecting to SFTP servers
- Wireless network access details and passwords (in encrypted form) for your local network
- Cellular service providers and their respective email-to-text services
- App store providers
We will only store those data if you or an authorized representative of yours have explicitly requested their use. Where such data are not already encrypted, we will encrypt them before storing them. You will be able to revoke the use of such data by simply removing the affected data, or by withdrawing your permission directly with the third-party service. LogTag North America Inc will take all reasonable steps to make sure no data are stored once you have explicitly deleted them from the Service.
LogTag North America Inc will never use such stored data for any purposes other than specifically agreed to when setting up the service. LogTag North America Inc will also never share such information other than detailed in "Transfer of Data".
You acknowledge and agree that:
- we may use Data and information about your use of the Service to generate anonymized and aggregated statistical and analytical data ("Analytical Data”), and use such Analytical Data for our internal research and product development purposes and to conduct statistical analysis and identify trends and insights;

You must obtain all necessary consents from the relevant individual(s) to enable us to collect, use, hold and process that information in accordance with these Terms.
Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
For more information on Google's policies please visit the dedicated Google web page at https://policies.google.com/.
We engage third-party providers who use their own analytics to track and monitor the use of our Service.
