Privacy Policy

 

Purple Frog respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. When we do need your personal information to provide services that you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.

Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, other information when needed to provide a service you requested.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously indicated that you wish Purple Frog to remember your login and password. We don’t automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website.

Like many other commercial websites, the Purple Frog website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to “Cookies and Tracking Information” below for more information.

Purple Frog collects personal information when you register with Purple Frog for a Purple Frog account, when you use certain Purple Frog products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or you submit an entry for a sweepstakes or other promotions, or when you submit your personal information to Purple Frog for any other reason.

From time to time, Purple Frog receives personal information from business partners and vendors. Purple Frog only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Policy and applicable laws.

Access to certain Purple Frog web pages requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and Purple Frog. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by Purple Frog to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, to track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.

Notice

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. Purple Frog will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled “Information Sharing and Disclosure” below.

If you choose to provide us with your personal information, we may only transfer that information, within Purple Frog or to Purple Frog ‘s third party service providers with your permission. Upon receiving your permission, we may transfer your information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

We will always give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Policy unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. In some cases, when applicable, we will provide you with the opportunity to “opt in.” This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted.

Cookies and Tracking Technology

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. All parts of Purple Frog’s website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

By using the Purple Frog website you are giving us implied permission that you are happy for the site to install temporary Google Analytics and HubSpot cookies. These do not store any of your personal details that you don't voluntarily offer us and are there purely to help us analyse the traffic to our website allowing us to deliver a better experience in the future. When you first entered the site a popup at the top of the page alerted you to this. But should you wish to turn the cookies off or block this and other sites installing cookies then you can manually set this from within your browsers settings or preferences.

If you are concerned about the use of cookies while browsing the web you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of Purple Frog’s website (and others) if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website.

Some cookies may be installed after clicking on an item, these are often for a 3rd party service such as the play button on a YouTube video or the ability to share an article with your friends on Twitter. By choosing to play these videos or use these extra services you are giving us permission to install temporary cookies and are agreeing to our terms of use.
