Convo Policies.

Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy was last modified in Dec, 2018.

Welcome to Convo ("Service" and "Website"). We are happy that you have chosen to visit our Service and learn more about our company. Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect and use personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") that you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our Service. We also provide you with the lawful basis for the processing of personal information. We will not use or share your Personal Information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

In this Privacy Policy the term "Convo" refers to our Service and Website, the homepage of which is located at www.Convo.com; the terms "us" or "we" or "our" refers to Convo, Corp. ("Convo"), the owner of www.Convo.com, and the terms "you" or "user" refer to the user or viewer of www.Convo.com. Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning ascribed to them in our Terms of Use.

When using Convo, there are general elements of our service that you should know. First, your network of contacts is defined by your company or organization's email domain. To join a network, you must confirm your email address and it must match the email domain of your company. Additionally, only people in your network can view other member profiles and feeds.
Companies that "claim" their network can impose additional security requirements beyond those described in this Privacy Policy. Examples of such restrictions include password policies and restricting access to the internal protocol range of their virtual private network. Additionally, companies that claim their network own the user generated content of their employees. Convo does not own such user generated content. Convo's administrative tools do not allow our employees to view messages in a network. Access to our database is granted only to our technicians on a case-by-case basis to troubleshoot specific technical issues, or as may be required by law. For further details on using Convo, please refer to our Terms of Use Agreement.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, you should contact support@convo.com or Ashar Ahmed, counsel, at ashar@convo.com.

Convo complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union to the United States. Covo has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles. If there is any conflict between the terms in this privacy policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and to view our certification, please visit www.privacyshield.gov.

As we update and expand our Service, this Privacy Policy may change, so please check this web page for updates to our Privacy Policy.

We collect this information in order to continually improve and enhance the functionality of www.Convo.com

Generally, you may provide us with three types of information, User Content, which may include Personal Information, Website and Service Usage Information, both of which are discussed in greater detail below.


Personal Information You Choose to Provide

We will ask you for your name and email address, both of which you are asked to provide when registering with Convo. Below is a description of some of the ways that you may provide Personal Information to us, as well as further details on how we may use such Personal Information.

Sign-Up and Profile Information
You provide us with Personal Information, such as your name and email address, when you register a Member account with Convo. You may also choose to add information, such as email addresses of the people you work with, in order to invite them to your network.

Contact Us/Feedback
If you choose to correspond with us via email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our response to you. In certain cases, and with your permission, we may post content from your emails to us on the Convo Website.

Questionnaires and Surveys
We may occasionally ask users of Convo to complete online surveys and opinion polls about their activities, attitudes and interests. These surveys help us better serve you and improve the usefulness of Convo. In requesting your participation in these surveys, we may ask you to provide your name and email address to us.


Website and Service Usage Information

Cookies
We may use "cookies" on or in connection with our Website and Service to maintain information about you. A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. Convo employs the use of both "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive after you close your browser or Convo application. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser or the Convo application on subsequent visits to the Website or use of the Service. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser's directions or by removing it from the following directory:

Mac: ~/user/Library/Preferences/convofy.xxx (where xxx is a string of numbers and letters)
Windows XP: drive:\documents and settings\[username]\application data\convofy.xxx (where xxx is a string of numbers and letters)
Windows Vista/Windows 7: drive:\users\[username]\appdata\roaming\convofy.xxx (where xxx is a string of numbers and letters)

Profile Information
You provide us with Personal Information, such as your name and email address, when you register a Member account with Convo or within the profile settings of the Service. You may also choose to add information, such as a photo, to your profile.

User Content
Our Service offers its users the opportunity to share User Content – for instance, on support forums and blogs. If you choose to use these features, you should be aware that any Personal Information you submit through these features can be read, collected, or used by other viewers of these forums and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the Personal Information you choose to submit in these forums.

Import Contacts
We utilize an import contacts feature to help you keep in touch with your contacts and other members. We make it easy for you to invite people from your email address book to join you on our Service. You can manually import a file from your email program, mobile phone, or you can provide your email user name and password through a secure OAuth transaction and the Convo program will store your email contacts for you. When you import your contacts, we will ask you if you wish to invite or follow your colleagues from your same domain. If you indicate that you would like to follow them, we will send them an invitation from you (with a return address of no_reply@Convo.com) to activate a Convo account and join the same domain network as you. We may also send reminder messages after the original invitation if we do not hear back from them. People you invite to join the Service may opt out of receiving further emails from Convo as described in the Rights to Opt In/Opt Out section below.

IP Address and Clickstream Data
Our servers automatically collect data about your Internet Protocol address when you use Convo. Our servers may log your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another website or a search engine); the resources you visit on the service; the website you visit after our Website; other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on this Service or a referral website; and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. We use this information for internal system administration, to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer our Website and Service. Such information may also be used to gather broad demographic information, such as country of origin and Internet Service Provider. We may also link this information with Personal Information.
Any or all of these activities with regard to the above-described Website and Service Usage Information may be performed on our behalf by our third-party service providers. (See third-parties Sharing Information with Third Parties section below).

You may opt out of Convo's promotional e-mails by clicking on the opt-out or "unsubscribe" link within the email you receive. You can also make this request by sending an email to support@convo.com, specifying whether: (i) you would like to opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from Convo in general, or just via e-mail, postal mail and/or by phone, and/or whether (ii) you would only like to opt out of certain Convo's e-newsletters or correspondence.
Please understand that if you opt out of receiving promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.

If you choose to import your address book contacts as part of Convo's invitation process, we may store those names and emails and display those with the same domain as your Network to other Network members on the Service in order to customize the Service for you and to enable you and coworkers in your Network to generate subsequent invitations. We may send you notices (for example, in the form of emails, mailings, and the like), and otherwise correspond with you, about products, services, companies, events, sponsored by us and others, that we think might interest you.
