We will create a user profile that may include information like:
When you use our Services, we’ll collect information about the ways in which you use and interact with our Services, such as when and for how long you use our Services, features and other activities.
We may access in real-time, record, and/or store archives of these information to make use of them to protect the safety and well-being of our users and employees; to protect Earthmetry’s rights and property in connection with our Services; to conduct research; to operate, improve, personalize, and optimize our Services and our users’ experiences, including through the use of analytics. Where required by law, we will seek your consent for this.
We’ll collect information related to any purchases you make.
If you make a payment to us, we or our third-party payment processor will collect the billing and financial information it needs to process your charges. This may include your postal address, e-mail address, and financial information. Earthmetry’s payment processors do not share your financial information, like credit card numbers, with Earthmetry, but they may share non-financial information with us related to your purchases, like your name, billing address, and the items purchased.
If you communicate with us for any support, then we will associate your profile information with what you communicate with us. We will also store the communications you have with our Customer Service team and any additional information in those communications in order to provide support and improve the Services.
We may for the purposes of authentication, integrate with providers such as Google or Microsoft. In such cases, with your permission, we may collect your full name and email address from such providers.

We use your information under several legal bases, including to establish and perform our contract with you, for our legitimate interests, to comply with our legal obligations, to establish, use and protect Earthmetry’s rights, or otherwise with your consent.
The main use of the information we collect and store is to provide you with the Services you request from us and to improve your user experience, but there are other uses as well. The uses for which we collect and store your information include:
However, we’ll normally collect information from you only where we need it to perform our contract with you (i.e., our Terms of Service), where the processing is in our legitimate interests (provided that these aren’t overridden by your interests or rights), or if we otherwise have your consent.
In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation or need to collect information from you or may otherwise need the personal information to protect your vital interests or those of another person (for example, another user).
If we ask you to provide information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, this will normally be clear from the context in which we are asking you to provide your information (for example, when we ask you to provide a username to access our Services, this will be to create an account for you in accordance with our Terms of Service), and, if not, we will provide an explanation to you at the relevant time. We will also make clear whether providing information is mandatory.
Similarly, if we collect and use your information in reliance on legitimate interests (or those of any third party) which are not listed above, it will be made clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are (such as personalizing our services and marketing, for example).
If you have questions or need further information about the legal bases on which we collect and use your personal information, please Contact Us.
We may share your information, including personal information, with third parties or allow third parties to collect this information from our Services in the following circumstances:

We may share your information with the interested party if we undergo or evaluate undergoing a sale or merger.
We may share some of your information with other third parties if we have your consent to do so.

We seek to ensure that we do not collect information from children.
Our Services are not intended for children under the age of 13 (or under 16 for children located in the European Countries) (collectively, “Children”). Children are not permitted to use these Services, and we do not knowingly collect any personal information from Children.
If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered personal information from a Child, we will take reasonable measures to promptly remove that information from our records.
When you use our Services, your personal information may be sent to the United States and possibly other countries. When we process personal information collected in the European Countries outside of the European Countries, we comply with our legal obligations and ensure that your personal information is subject to suitable safeguards or transferred to “approved” territories.
We may transfer personal information to our “Affiliated Entities,” which are any other corporate entities under common ownership with Earthmetry, or to our business partners and service providers from time to time for our legitimate business purposes.
We store personal information about visitors to our sites on servers located in the United States, India and other countries, and we may also process this information in other countries where our Affiliated Entities, business partners and service providers have their operations. Personal information collected in the European Countries may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the European Countries for purposes such as: (i) the processing of transactions and your payment details, or (ii) the provision of support services. When we transfer your personal information internationally we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is treated securely, lawfully, and in the manner we describe here. Please note that laws vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, so the privacy laws applicable to the places where your information is transferred to or stored, used, or processed in, may be different from the privacy laws applicable to the place where you are resident.

You may exercise any rights you have to correct, amend, or delete information about you as described in Your Rights and How to Access, Update, and Manage Your Personal Information.
We’ll keep your information for as long as necessary to provide you with the Services, maintain our legitimate business operations, and/or exercise, defend or establish our rights.
How long we retain your personal information depends on why we collected it and how we use it, but we will not retain your personal information for longer than is necessary for our business purposes or for legal requirements.
We will retain personal information about you and connected with your account and/or the Services you use from us for as long as you have an active account with us.

However, you acknowledge that we may retain some information after you have closed, or we have deleted, your account with us where necessary to enable us to meet our legal obligations or to exercise, defend, or establish our rights.
We work hard to protect your information but you also have a role to play.
If you have an account registered directly with Earthmetry, your profile information is protected by the password you use to access your Earthmetry account. It is important that you protect and maintain your Earthmetry account’s security and that you immediately tell us of any unauthorized use of your account. If you forget the password to your Earthmetry account, the Services allow you to request that instructions be sent to you that explain how to reset your password. If you access our Services through another account which is hacked or otherwise compromised, this may lead to someone accessing or deleting your Earthmetry accounts without your permission. So, be careful to keep your account information, including your account password, secure as well. We urge you to log out of your Earthmetry account and any other account you have used to access our Services when you are finished using them.
When you sign into your Earthmetry account or enter payment information, we and our third-party payment processor use encryption to transmit that information.
While we take precautions against possible security breaches of our Services and our customer databases and records, no website or Internet transmission is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breaches will never occur, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information while it is being transmitted to our Service. Any transmission is at your own risk. If you have questions about the security of our websites, please Contact Us.
You can contact us with your questions, comments, or concerns.
