We take the privacy of your Personal Data seriously. Therefore, we collect, store and use Personal Data to provide, secure and improve our Services, fulfill our contractual obligations to our customers or third parties, to comply with applicable laws and regulations and as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. The types of Personal Data that we may receive, collect, store and process varies from user to user of our Services and may include your:

 

Service & Contact Data. We collect various forms of Personal Data from visitors of our website and users of our Services, including without limitation, your name, address, email address, phone number, signature, ID number, IP address, age, gender, country, preferred language, financial data, health and medical data, and location data. We may use, process and transmit your Personal Data to render our Services, to contact you and allow others on your team to contact you through the Services, to tell you about new products and features, to respond to customer care and other inquiries, and to process and fulfill your transactions and other requests. We also collect information you provide to us and the content of messages you send to us, such as service request, feedback and product reviews you write, or questions and information you provide for customer support.

 

Account Information. We also collect credentials (e.g. passwords, password hints, and similar security information used for authentication and account access) as some of our Services let you access your accounts and related information with other service providers.

 

Collection from Minors. Lightico does not knowingly collect personal information from minors who are under the age of 16 through the Services. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personally identifiable information without his/her consent, then he or she should contact Lightico as described below. If we become aware that a child under the age of 16 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete such information from our files.

 

Services Information. Our data analytics tools and capabilities enable our enterprise customers to collect, store, analyze and share the contents of signed documents, audio, video, image and text-based communications such as phone calls, emails, and chats, along with associated data and documentation. Such data and analysis thereof may also contain personal information, such as names, titles, and contact information. We may reproduce, analyze, summarize and disclose these files and any results of our Services with such customers and their relevant personnel and other team members, and customers may share this information with their personnel and others, pursuant to our contractual obligations. You may choose to give us access to additional user contacts to make it easy for you to do things like sending electronic files, collaborating with others, and authorizing others to use the Services for purposes of accessing information within your account. If you do, we may store those contacts within our systems for you to use.

If you provide us with any personally identifiable information about another person, whether through a telephone call, signature process or otherwise, you represent and warrant that (1) you have that person’s consent to do so; (2) such person has given explicit consent (a) for us to collect, process, use and store such information as set forth in this Privacy Policy and any commercial agreement you have entered into with us, and (b) for any other ways you may use that information; and (3) you are responsible for ensuring that your (and any of your personnel or representatives, if applicable) use, control, processing and treatment of such information and any of your legal policies relating thereto are in compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

 

Usage Information. We collect information related to how you use the Services, including actions you take in your account, such as accessing and sharing files and documents. This helps us provide you with additional features, and to personalize, monitor and improve the Services. We also collect information from and about the devices you use to access the Services, such as IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to the Services.

 

Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies and pixels to provide, improve, protect and promote our Services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. Our uses of cookies include storing your usernames and passwords, analyzing usage of the Services, customizing the Services and personalizing and delivering advertisements that may be displayed to you. Please visit our cookie policy below for more information about how we use cookies.   As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather additional information through other methods. Many browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.

If you would like to opt out of receiving targeted advertising, please email [email protected].

 

Choice. You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind that some information may be needed to create an account or take advantage of some of our features.  You may also be precluded from using certain features, tools and aspects of our Services if you elect not to provide us with certain information that we may request.

 

With Whom We Share Your Information

 

Other users. Our Services display information contained within your Personal Data like your name, title, company and email address to other users in places like your user profile and sharing notifications. When you utilize the Services to exchange signatures with other users, we may share your Personal Data with third parties as requested or directed by you through the Services.  Please remember that such third party’s use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms and we are not responsible for their acts or omissions. Similarly, this Privacy Policy does not reflect the privacy practices of how our customers may use information they collect using our Services (e.g. to analyze and improve their sales team members’ effectiveness in their sales discussions), and it is up to them to determine whether a non-disclosure agreement or other terms should be entered into with their prospects, customers, and other third parties with whom they may share information, however, we expect them to comply with all applicable laws. Lightico does not monitor, review or specifically comment on its customer’s privacy policies or their compliance with their respective privacy policies.

 

Your Employer/Company. If you are using the Services on behalf of your employer or as an independent contractor of a third-party enterprise, your company administrator may have the ability to access and control your account, and your Personal Data may be shared with your colleagues and others. Please refer to your organization’s internal policies if you have questions about this. If you are not a member of an organization but interact with someone who is (e.g., by joining a shared folder or accessing documents shared by that user), members of that organization may be able to view the name, email address, IP address, and other information that was associated with your account at the time of that interaction.

 

Anonymized Data. We may anonymize or aggregate your Personal Data so that you are not individually identified (“Anonymized Data”), and we may use such Anonymized Data to improve our Services. We also may also provide Anonymized Data to our partners, who may use that information in anonymized form to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience. However, we will never disclose aggregate usage information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally as an individual except as required to perform the Services or as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy.

 

Vendors; Affiliates. Lightico uses certain trusted third parties (for example, providers of datacenters, cloud service providers, support tools and other IT services) to help us provide, improve, protect, and promote our Services. From time to time we may need to share your data with these parties. We may also share your Personal Data with our affiliated entities and personnel in the United States, Israel and globally. These third parties will access your information only to perform tasks on our behalf and always in compliance with this Privacy Policy. We may and our customers may share information as discussed above and throughout this Privacy Policy, but we won’t otherwise sell your Personal Data to advertisers or other third parties.

 

Customer Service & Development Teams. We may need to share some personal data among our development and customer service team. For example, to provide customer service and support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services our development and customer service team may have access to personal data. In such cases, our personnel must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and policy and are not allowed to use personal data for any other purpose. By using the Services and accepting this Privacy Policy, you hereby agree and give permission to Lightico to do so.

 

Other Purposes. If we intend to use any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time the Personal Data is processed.

 

Processing of Your Personal Data

 

As we’ve noted above, Lightico will use your Personal Data only in accordance with our Privacy Policy. If you do not wish us to continue using your Personal Data in this manner, you can request that your account be deactivated by contacting us as specified in the “Contact Us” section.

We will only process your Personal Data if we have a lawful basis for doing so. Lawful bases for processing include consent, contractual necessity (i.e. processing that is necessary for the performance of a contract with you, such as your user agreement with us that allows us to provide you with the Products) and our “legitimate interests” or the legitimate interest of others (e.g. our users).

If by mistake you receive direct marketing without your specific consent and/or wish to opt-out, please contact us at [email protected]

You have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data as set forth below. Please note that in some circumstances, Lightico may not be able to fully comply with your requests, or we may ask you to provide us with additional information in connection with your request, which may include providing us with more Personal Data if we need to verify your identity or the nature of your request, as required by applicable laws. In such situations, however, we will still respond to let you know of our decision.  As a general matter, our Services enable our customers to view, edit, or delete your Personal Data online, in your sole discretion.

As noted above, under certain circumstances we will not be able to fulfill your request, such as if it interferes with our regulatory obligations, affects legal matters, we cannot verify your identity, or it involves disproportionate cost or effort, but in any event we will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe and provide you an explanation. Please note that even when complying with your deletion requests, we may retain a backup copy of your Personal Data for an additional period of time for technical, regulatory, tax or legal purposes, in each case, solely as permitted or required under applicable laws.

 

Legal Requests/Disclosures

We may access, preserve and disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law, legal requests or court orders; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse or address security or technical issues relating to our Services or our users; or (d) protect and enforce our rights and the rights, property and safety of our users and others.

How We Store Your Information

Security. We have personnel and third parties dedicated to keeping your information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. We also continue to work on features to keep your information safe in addition to things like Single Sign-On user authentication, and encryption of data in transit and at rest. However, no means of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, and while we endeavor to use commercially reasonable means to protect personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Therefore, we recommend you use, disclose and share your Personal Data and information with caution and only as necessary. If you access our Services via a third-party CRM platform or Cloud calendar (GSuite, Outlook 365), you should also protect your account with secure account credentials and prevent unauthorized access to your account and personal information. If you notice a risk or any security violations, please report it to us at [email protected] and we will endeavor to resolve it as soon as possible.

Location-Based Storage. As a cloud-based Service, we use Amazon Cloud Services, which are GDPR-compliant and ISO 27001, 27017 and 27018 certified (See AWS full statement). We store Personal Data collected from customers (together with backups thereof) in (i) the European Economic Area (“EEA”), with AWS cloud services in the United Kingdom; (ii) the United States, with Amazon US, which is Privacy Shield certified; and (iii) Israel, with Avnet Cloud Services, noting that Israel falls under the adequacy exception of the GDPR.

 

Retention. Subject to the rights of users set forth above, we’ll retain information for as long as we need it to provide you the Services, comply with our contractual obligations or to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations. If you discontinue the service, this information can be deleted upon request. But please note: (1) there might be some latency in deleting this information from our servers and back-up storage; (2) we will not delete Anonymized Data and may continue to use it as describe in this Privacy Policy; and (3) we may retain information if necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, manage security risks, or enforce our agreements.

 

International Transfers; Standard Contractual Clauses

 

We are a global company, with offices and operations in numerous countries. We may store personal information about you in the EEA and in in other countries and territories. To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer and access such personal information from around the world, including from other countries in which Lightico has operations. Please note that these data transfer practices may vary based on customer location and the applicable Service being used.

We have taken appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal data will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy. For instance, we have implemented the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal data, which requires the protection of personal data processed from the EEA in accordance with EU data protection laws (a copy of which can be obtained at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=celex%3A32010D0087). Our Standard Contractual Clauses can be provided on request. We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third-party service providers and partners.

Accountability for Onward Transfers.

 

Lightico shall enter into contracts to ensure that any third party to whom Personal Data may be disclosed is aware of and adheres to the principles contained in this Privacy Policy and/or is otherwise compliant with applicable laws and regulations mandating an adequate level of privacy protection. In all circumstances, Lightico shall ensure by contract that any such third party (a) is aware of the principles contained in this Privacy Policy; (b) is subject to laws providing the same level of privacy protection as is required by these principles; and (c) has contractual safeguards in place to protect the Personal Data. We shall also, upon notice, take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate unauthorized processing by third parties.

 

Lightico is not required to identify the sources of personal data when such identification is not possible through reasonable efforts, or where the rights of persons other than the affected data subject would be violated. If there are compelling grounds to doubt the legitimacy of a data subject’s request for rectification, amendment or deletion of his or her Personal Data, we may require further justifications before performing the Data Subject’s request. We are not required to notify third parties to whom the Personal Data has been disclosed of any rectification, amendment or deletion when such notification involves a disproportionate effort or unreasonable burden.

 

Security

 

Lightico undertakes reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical and physical measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of Personal Data, whether in electronic or tangible, hard copy form. We shall also take reasonable steps to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. For instance, Lightico is ISO 27001 certified and implements legal, technical and organizational measures in accordance therewith.

 

Links to Third Party Websites

Through our Services, you may connect to third party websites via hyperlinks, and the connections may or may not be obvious. We are not responsible for the collection, use, maintenance, sharing or disclosure of data and information by such third parties. We encourage you to be aware of the varied privacy policies of Web sites that you visit.

 

Social Media Widgets

 

Our Services include social media features. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the Feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

 

Change of Entity Form

 

If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, bankruptcy or similar event, your Personal Data may be transferred as part of the evaluation of and consummation of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal where we are not the surviving entity of such transaction, and outline your choices. You acknowledge and agree that any successor to or acquirer of Lightico (or its assets) will continue to have the right to use your Personal Data and other information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

 

Right to Modify

 

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to revise this Privacy Policy from time to time, and will post the most current version on our website with a change to the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically, and especially before you provide any Personal Data or information. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you. This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for reasons such as operational practices or regulatory changes, so we recommend that you review our Privacy Policy when returning to our website. By using the Services after any changes, you acknowledge your agreement to such changes and that use of information collection is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect when such information is used. If you have opted not to receive legal notices or emails from us, or have not provided your email address to us, the legal notices we send to you will still govern your use of the Services.

COOKIES

 

  1. What is a cookie? A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your web browser that allows Lightico or a third party to recognize you. Cookies might be used for the following purposes: (1) to enable certain functions; (2) to provide analytics; (3) to store your preferences; and (4) to enable ad delivery and behavioral advertising. Cookies can either be session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires or you delete your cookies. Expiration dates are set in the cookies themselves; some may expire after a few minutes while others may expire after multiple years. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are sometimes called “third party cookies.”

 

  1. What cookies are used when I use the Services? When you access and/or use any of the Services, Lightico or a third party may place a number of cookies in your browser. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used. Each cookie serves one of four different purposes:

 

  • Essential Cookies:These first party cookies allow users to use a feature of the Services such as: (i) staying logged in, or (ii) making purchases.

 

  • Analytics Cookies: These cookies track information about how the Services are being used so that we can make improvements and report on our performance. We may also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages or features to see how users react to them. Analytics cookies may either be first party or third-party cookies.

 

  • Preference Cookies: These first party cookies store your Services preferences.

 

  • Ad Targeting Cookies: These third-party cookies (also known as “behavioral” or “targeted” advertising) are placed by advertising platforms or networks in order to: (i) deliver ads and tracks ad performance, and (ii) enable advertising networks to deliver ads that may be relevant based upon your activities.

Finally, we may set cookies within emails we send to you (if you have consented to receiving emails from us). These cookies are used to track how often our emails are opened and clicked on by our customers. You can manage email cookies in the same way as website cookies, as explained above.

 

  1. How do third parties use cookies on the Services? Third party companies like analytics companies and ad networks generally use cookies to collect user information on an anonymous basis. They may use that information to build a profile of your activities on the Services and other websites that you’ve visited.

 

  1. What are my cookie options? If you don’t like the idea of cookies or certain types of cookies, you can change your browser’s settings to delete cookies that have already been set and to not accept new cookies. To learn more about how to do this, visit the help pages of your browser. Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or do not accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly. You may also opt out of third party cookies by following the instructions provided by each third party in its privacy policy.

Do you use any other user tracking technologies? We use additional technologies to help track user activities and preferences. For example, we use web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs). Web beacons are tiny graphics (about the size of period) with a unique identifier that are embedded invisibly on web pages or emails. They are used to track user activities and communicate with cookies. You cannot opt out of web beacons used in webpages, but you can limit their use by opting out of the cookies they interact with. You can opt out of web beacons used in emails by setting your email client to render emails in text mode only. Finally, we use local storage to facilitate certain functions, but we do not retain the data captured via local storage.
