Do We Use Cookies?

When you visit the Site or use the Services, we use session “cookies” — a piece of information stored on your computer — to allow us to uniquely identify your browser while you are logged in and to enable Bedrock Data to process your online transactions. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any Personal Data you submit while on our Site. Session cookies also help us confirm your identity and are required in order to log into your account. Bedrock Data uses persistent cookies that only Bedrock Data can read and use, to identify you as a Bedrock Data customer and make it easier for you to log into your account. Users who disable their web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our Site, but will not be able to access or take advantage of the Services. For further information about disabling or blocking cookies, please see 'Can I withdraw my consent?' in our Cookie Policy

Our partners use session ID cookies to trace user movement on the Site and to collect usage data for the Services. The use of cookies by our partners is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies. To learn more about cookies, see our Cookie Policy.

How Do We Protect Your Information?

We will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We will retain Personal Data we process for as long as needed to provide the Services. We will retain and use this Personal Data as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Your request to opt out or withdraw consent will apply prospectively.

Do We Disclose Personal Data to Third Parties?

We do not sell, share or disclose your Personal Data to third parties other than those parties necessary to enable us to provide the Services and fulfill your subscription (our “Subcontractors”). Our Subcontractors may be based in locations outside the EU/EEA.  We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our Site policies and terms, detect or prevent fraud, security or technical issues, or protect our or other’s rights, property, or safety. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention.  Because our servers, which store your information, are located in the U.S.A., your information may be available to U.S. government entities or agencies under a lawful court order or other legal process in the U.S. If our assets are merged with or purchased by a third party, your Personal Data will be transferred to that third party.

Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to Google Analytics or HubSpot as described in this Policy.

By accessing our Site or the Services or by sending us email, you provide your express consent to our disclosure and transfer of your Personal Data to our Subcontractors for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy.

Third Party Sites and Links / Payment Processing

Our Site may contain links to other websites that are independent, are not owned or operated by us, are not covered by this Privacy Policy and which may incorporate Third Party Information.  For example, when you purchase a subscription, you are immediately directed to our third party payment processor Recurly. Recurly operates a third party service and website through which it collects your Personal Data and billing information in order to process your transaction. To learn about Recurly’s privacy practices, please read their privacy policy at Recurly and other third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. If you access other sites using the links provided, the operators of these sites may collect information from you, which will be used by them in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of other websites, even if they are linked to our Site.

Social Media Features

Our Site includes features from social media websites such as the Facebook Like button and features on LinkedIn and Twitter that run on our Site. 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 are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to these features. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy and other policies of the companies providing them.

International or Cross-Border Transfer of Your Personal Data and Your Express Agreement

Given that the Internet operates in a global environment and that, if you operate outside of the United States, transfer of your data is necessary for you to use our Services or request information from us, using the Internet to collect and process Personal Data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international, or cross-border, basis. By registering for the Site or accessing the Services, and/or communicating with us by email, you acknowledge and expressly consent to our processing transfer and disclosure of your Personal Data in this way.

For users who are located outside the United States, Personal Data will be transferred outside of each user’s country to the United States where our servers are located and where it will be processed and stored on services owned and operated by Rackspace US, Inc., which participates in the EU-US Safe Harbor program. You may view the Rackspace privacy policy at The U.S. does not provide an adequate level of protection according to EU data protection regulations, for the purpose of providing the Services. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that Personal Data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy in respect of such transfer. By registering for the Site, by subscribing for Services and/or by emailing us, you expressly agree to such transfer and disclosure outside the EU/EEA to the US and other locations outside the EEA.

California Do Not Track Disclosures / Your California Privacy Rights

If you are a resident of the State of California, under California Civil Code sections 1798.83-1798.84, you have the right to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of personal information, which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for direct marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. Since we do not share personal information with third parties for direct marketing purposes we are exempt from this requirement. We currently do not honor Do Not Track signals. Personal Data collected by us as described in this Privacy Policy is not maintained in personally identifiable form in combination with any identifier collected by cookies, web beacons, or other technologies.
