Version 1.4 – Updated 8/3/2022
All customers enter into an agreement to access and use the Carbonetes software-as-a-service offering (“Terms of Service“). The Terms of Service, located at https://carbonetes.com/terms/, govern the submission, access to and use of any Customer Data (information submitted through the Carbonetes service, including emails or names for the purpose of logging into the service and receiving service related notifications). Customer Data may include personally identifiable information. The organization (e.g., your employer) that entered into the Terms of Service (the “Customer“) controls the particular instance of the Service and any associated Customer Data.
Collection of Information
Information You Provide to Us
More specifically, when you register with our Services as a user, we will collect your name, email address, and password. We also collect Personal Information from you when you subscribe to our mailing lists (either through our website or otherwise) or respond to a survey (whether sent by us or by one of our partners that provides business-related services to us (e.g. SurveyMonkey)). If you make an inquiry through our website, or contact us in any other way, we may keep a copy of your communications with us. For example, if you call us, we may record the phone call for quality and/or reference purposes (e.g. we may record phone interviews with potential candidates applying for positions at Carbonetes); if we wish to record our phone call, we will notify you and obtain your permission before doing so.
We may also collect certain technical information by automatic means when you use our Services: this information is typically the information sent to us by your HTTP header and may include IP address, browser type and configurations, and operating system, the website you visited before visiting our website, and usage data resulting from your use of our website (such as hit and conversion rates). Through our software-as-a-service offering, we automatically collect and aggregate data regarding your use of the Services, such as results of security scans and whether they pass your security policy. We automatically collect certain information on our Services using cookies, web beacons, locally shared objects (sometimes called “flash cookies”), mobile identifiers and similar technologies (“Cookies“).
Information We Collect from Other Sources
We have also implemented certain Google Analytics services, which may categorize Cookie information so that we and third-party service providers can better deliver advertisements that are relevant and useful to you on the Services and various websites across the internet.
We may combine the information Ad Partners collect from you with information we collect through our Services. For example, if you authenticate with your Carbonetes account via a single sign-on method, such as SAML, we will have access to information that authentication provider sends, such as your email address.
We may also allow Ad Partners to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet and in third-party applications.
We may receive information from the third-party authentication provider about you, including your Amazon Web Services (AWS), GitHub, Bitbucket, JIRA, Jenkins, Google, or Docker username and your email address. We are also working closely with other third parties (including, for example, business partners, service providers, sub-contractors in technical and payment services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers and recruitment agencies) and may receive information about you from them. If you use the Platform while working for one of our customers, we will receive information (such as your email address, to create an account for you) from that customer. If you work for an organization, we may receive your name and contact details from partners who identify potential customers for our services (including attendees at events we sponsor).
Information of Minors
We do not intentionally gather personal information from visitors who are under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, you are not permitted to submit any personal information to us or to otherwise use our Services. If we learn that a child under 13 submits personal information to Carbonetes, we will delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any personal information from a child under 13, please contact us using the information in the “Contact Us” section at the bottom of this Policy.
Do Not Track Signals
We do not currently respond to ‘do not track’ signals and similar settings or mechanisms. It is critical that we be able to quickly respond to any security or operations issues that may occur within our Services; responding to ‘do not track’ signals would inhibit our ability to do so.
