1. OUR STANCE ON PRIVACY.
Vendr aims to provide a great, trusted product and service to our customers. We do plan on using anonymized aggregate data to improve the product for those same customers. Moreover, we will never sell our customers data, identity, or contact information to third parties or vendors, as that would be a violation of our promise and trust. Any feature that requires sharing of personally identifiable information will be strictly opt-in.
2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT.
2.1 Personal Information. You can visit the Site without submitting any Personal Information. However, if you decide to fill out one of our website forms or create an account with us, you will be required to provide Personal Information including name, email address, and company name. Likewise, if you choose to sign-up for the Service as a Customer, you will be required to provide Personal Information including, some or all: name, address, email address, job role, and company name.
A. Business Account and Transaction Information. We may collect information when you create an account, such as name, email address, telephone number, professional details, and other profile information you choose to provide, including information you provide by linking other data sources, integrations, or similar services to Vendr, which information may include, without limitation, information regarding your customers or vendors and related commercial terms and pricing and payment information.

To obtain such information, we may use web logs or applications that recognize your computer and gather information about its online activity.
2.4 Web beacons. The Site, Service, or the emails that you receive from Vendr may use an application known as a “web beacon” (also known as a “clear gif” or “web bug”). A web beacon is an electronic file that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include Personal Information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.

We also may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the Personal and Other Information described in this section. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use web beacons on the Site, Service, or in email communications from Vendr.

4. INFORMATION SHARING.
We share your Personal Information and Other Information with other parties for a limited set of purposes, primarily to help improve our product and service, as described below.
4.2 Third-party service providers and business partners. Vendr uses other third-party service providers to help us manage and improve the Site and Service. These service providers may collect and/or use your Personal or Other Information to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed above in the section entitled “How we use the personal and Other Information that we collect.” For example, we use third parties to help us target and implement our email communications and direct mailings. These third party service providers may use information received in the course of providing services to us only for the specific purposes for which such information was disclosed.
4.4 Your direct sharing of information with other users of the Services. The Service enables you to share Personal Information and Other Information with other users of the Service. For example, Vendr allows users of an account to peruse other information submitted by other users of that same account. Likewise, the Service allows for users to contact each other via tasks, which trigger an email. Please ensure when using these features that you do not submit any Personal or Other Information that you do not want to be seen, collected, or used by other users.
4.6 Affiliates. We may share your Personal or Other Information with our affiliates, for our administrative purposes including activities such as IT management, for them to provide services to you, or to support and supplement the Service that we provide.
4.7 Legal purposes. We also may use or share your personal or Other Information with third parties when we believe, in our sole discretion, that doing so is necessary: to comply with applicable law or a court order, subpoena, or other legal process; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our terms and conditions, or situations involving threats to our property or the property or physical safety of any person or third party; to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; or to facilitate the financing, securitization, insuring, sale, assignment, bankruptcy, or other disposal of all or part of our business or assets.
4.8 Aggregated information. From time to time, Vendr may also share anonymized and aggregated information about Site and Service users, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site and Service.
Vendr uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion. However, no security program is foolproof, and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your Personal or Other information, and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we do not accept liability for unauthorized disclosure.
By using our Service or providing information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of our Service. If we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on our Service, by mail or by sending an email to you.
Vendr believes that working with skilled security researchers helps identify weakness in any technology. If you are interested or believe you have found a security vulnerability, please review our Responsible Disclosure policy.

Information processed by us may be transferred, processed, and stored anywhere in the world, including, but not limited to, the United States or other countries, which may have data protection laws that are different from the laws where you live. We endeavor to safeguard your information consistent with the requirements of applicable laws.
If we transfer personal information that originates in the European Economic Area, Switzerland, and/or the United Kingdom to a country outside of such regions, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that: (i) there are appropriate safeguards in place such as binding corporate rules or the approved EU standard contractual clauses between Vendr and the recipient; (ii) the transfer is to a country that provides an adequate level of protection under applicable laws; (iii) one of the derogations for specific situations found in applicable law applies to the transfer including explicit consent, where such transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract or exercise, or the defense of legal claims; or (iv) the transfer is otherwise consistent with the requirements of applicable law. By using the Site or Service, or by providing any Personal or Other Information to us, you expressly consent to such transfer and processing.
