Privacy Policy

SERVICES PRIVACY POLICY

Raptor Technologies, LLC, its affiliates and wholly owned subsidiaries, including LobbyGuard Solutions, LLC (“we,” “us,” “RAPTOR” or “LobbyGuard”) provide a variety of technology solutions for schools, corporations, government entities and other entities including online software-as-a-service platforms, devices, mobile applications, application programming interfaces (“APIs”), software development kits (“SDKs”) as well as customer support and professional services (collectively, the “Services,” and each, a “Service”). Our Services are provided to different types of users, including institutions (our “Customers”), as well as to our Customers’ staff, visitors and other individuals (“you”). We respect the privacy of those who use our Services. This Services Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) explains how we collect, use, and disclose personally identifiable information, which is information that can be used to identify you (“PII”), in connection with the Services.

This Policy does not apply to PII that we collect through means other than the Services, including through our websites, www.raptortech.com and www.lobbyguard.com (each, a “Site,” and collectively, the “Sites”), and through offline business practices that are unrelated to the Services (the “Offline Practices”). To learn more about how we handle information in connection with the Sites and Offline Practices, please refer to our separate Website Privacy Policy, available here.

Please note that our Customers also collect, use, and disclose data that they obtain in connection with the Services. This Policy covers only how we handle your PII. For information about how our Customers handle your PII, please refer to the privacy policy of the institution or other third party with whom you are dealing directly. By using the Services, you agree to the terms of this Policy.

1. What Information We Collect

We collect PII about you. Depending on the Service we are providing, we may collect PII from you in a number of ways, when you voluntarily use the Services at a Customer location, when our Customer provides the information to us or provides us with access to such PII as a result of using the Services. If you have questions about Customer control in relation to the Services, please contact the Customer who provided you with access to the Service. In other cases, we collect PII independent of our Customers. PII can include, but is not limited to, the following categories of information:

  • Your first and last name, job title, organization and contact information (such as physical address, email address and phone number), student status;
  • Government-issued identification, such as a national identification number (e.g., passport number, permanent resident card number, military ID), state or local identification number (e.g., driver’s license of state ID number), an image of the relevant identification card and the information that may be contained on the card, and a copy of information that may be readable through a barcode on the relevant ID card;
  • Service credentials provided to you by Customers for support purposes;
  • Your username, password, and other credentials associated with Services;
  • Information about your use of the Services;
  • If you are affiliated with a Customer, information provided to us by the Customer about you, which may include your email address, job title, and other contact information;
  • Any other information that you have provided to our Customer or that our Customer has asked us to collect from you on their behalf;
  • Information described in Section 6 (Mobile Practices) below; and
  • Information about your involvement with our webinars, workshops or events.

We also receive PII about you from other sources, including third parties who share your PII with us, and combine this data with PII we already have about you. This helps us to properly support integrations between our Services and the services of a third party for our Customers and allows us to improve our existing Services, develop new Services, and engage in analytics. If you provide us with PII about others, or if others give us your PII, we will only use that information for the specific reason it was provided to us. Examples of the types of information that may be obtained from third parties and combined with PII we already have about you may include your use of third-party services that are integrated with our Services.

In our capacity as a processor for our Customers, we may also collect from you the following PII about your contacts:

  • Email address of an individual to be copied on a customer support ticket; and
  • First and last name when changing the main contact on a customer support ticket.

When you provide PII about your contacts, we will only process this information in accordance with the specific reason for which it was provided and as part of the Services we provide to our Customers. If you believe that one of your contacts has provided your PII and you would like to request that it be removed, please contact our Customer, the data controller. Upon their request to us, we may remove the Personal Information accordingly.

1.1. Passive Collection and Tracking Technologies

In addition to PII identified above, we also collect other PII automatically in connection with our browser-based Services. This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Providers (ISP), referring/exit pages, the files viewed (e.g. HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer our Services.

In connection with our browser-based Services, we use cookies or similar technologies (such as local storage, pixel tags, Javascript and ETags) to analyze trends, administer our Services, track users’ movements around our Services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, but if you choose to disable cookies, it may limit your use of certain features or functions of the Services.

2. How We Use Information

We use PII to provide our Services as directed by our Customers, including to respond to and act upon customer support inquiries and requests from our Customers, to provide information to our Customers (including reports and analytics about use of the Service), and to accomplish the actions or transactions you initiate through the Service.

In addition, we use PII for our business-oriented purposes, including to administer our Customer accounts, fulfill our contractual obligations with our Customers, improve our existing Services, develop new Services, engage in analytics, comply with legal or regulatory requirements, protect our rights and interests, and communicate with you about Services that may be of interest to you.

3. How We Share Information

We may share information about you with third parties on our own or at the instruction of our Customers.

When we share information about you with our own service providers to provide the Services and engage in the uses of PII permitted by this Policy, these third-party services may include:

  • Providing communication, customer support and ticketing tools;
  • Providing resources about our Services;
  • Managing webinar, workshop and event-related registration and attendance;
  • Sending marketing communications;
  • Conducting research and analysis; and
  • Providing cloud computing solutions.

Our service providers are only authorized to use your PII as necessary to provide these third-party services to us.

Furthermore, our Customers may direct us to integrate a Service with an offering, software, or application provided by a third party. In those cases, we will share PII with third parties at the Customer’s direction. If you have questions about Customer-directed sharing with third parties, please contact our Customer, the data controller.

In certain situations, we may be required to disclose PII in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We also may share your PII as required by law, including in response to a court order, subpoena, or other legal process or, when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others; to investigate fraud; or to respond to a government request.

We may also disclose your Personal Information with your prior consent.

4. Your Choices and Access to Information

We often do not interact directly with you or do so only at our Customer’s direction as a processor. Our Customers may provide you with notice of this Policy and, where appropriate, provide you with access (including the ability to confirm whether our Customer holds any of your PII and access, correct, or request deletion of your PII) as well as your choices in connection with our Services. If you have questions about your use of our Services, please contact the Customer who has provided you with access—this may be a school, your employer, government entity, corporation or someone else. We will work with our Customer to address any questions or requests brought to our attention within a reasonable timeframe, but we might not interact directly with you.

Upon request, we will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your PII, if we control such information. You may access, correct, or request deletion of your PII by emailing us at support@raptortech.com. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe.

5. Mobile Practices

When you download and use our mobile application-based Services, we may automatically collect information about the type of device you use, operating system version, and the device identifier (or “UDID”). We may track any geolocation-based information from your mobile device with use of certain Services that utilize geofencing technology related to emergency situations.

We may use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your mobile device. This software may record information such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any PII you submit within the mobile application.

6. Security

We use generally accepted and commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect our Services and your PII from loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion, both during transmission and once it’s received. No security program is completely secure and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your PII.

7. Data Retention

We retain PII for as long as accounts are active or as needed to provide the Services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our contracts. For example, we may be required by contract with our Customer or by an applicable law to retain your PII for a set period of time.
