Types of information we gather and how we use it

Information provided to us

We collect information from you when you register as a new user of WordFly or email customer support, such as email address, first and last name, job title, and phone number. We may also collect information from you when you: (1) sign up to receive email newsletters from us through the Website or elsewhere; (2) request additional information, customer service, or other assistance; and (3) participate on social media accounts involving our properties.

By providing us with this information, you consent to your information being collected, used, disclosed, and stored by us in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Pop collects information under the direction of its Clients; in these circumstances, Pop has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal data it processes. We work with our Clients to help them provide notice to their Subscribers concerning the purpose for which personal information is collected.

Information we collect when you interact with WordFly

When you interact with the Website or open communications you receive through WordFly from Clients, our servers may keep an activity log that does not identify you individually. Generally, we collect the following categories of Information through the Service:

  • We, and third parties acting on our behalf, collect and store certain information about your computer, or other device that you use to access the Website by storing strings of code called “Cookies” on your computer or using similar tracking tags such as beacons, tags, and scripts. This information may include IP address, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information. We and third parties may use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements around the Website, and gather demographic information about our user base. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies on an individual and aggregated basis.
  • We also use cookies to remember users’ settings (e.g. language preference) and for authentication purposes. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use the Service, but your ability to use some features or areas of our site may be limited.
  • We gather certain other information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, reading history of the pages you view and/or clickstream data. We use this information to provide you a more customized experience.

We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect or receive about you. We do this to improve the Service, including with respect to analytics and Website functionality.

Information related to campaigns

Any email addresses, mobile phone numbers, and supplemental Subscriber data that is imported by Clients into WordFly for use in a campaign is stored in WordFly. Any data collected from published surveys, forms, landing pages, RSVPs, or other data collection techniques are stored in WordFly. We also store all information that is used in campaigns that Clients have sent or are going to send. After the campaign is sent, we store who opened, clicked, bounced, and shared the campaign. Pop stores all the data Clients collect when publishing surveys, forms, landing pages, and RSVPs through WordFly. Pop has no control over the content or data requested in survey or other form building tools. Pop uses the information it collects to provide its Service to Clients.

Benchmark reporting for Clients

If a Client chooses to opt-in to the Benchmark Reporting datashare program, we will take data created through the Client's use of WordFly, remove all identifiable information about such use, and then combine that data with the data from other organizations in comparable industries and offer benchmark reports in an aggregate form. This data includes the Client's industry, industry category, region, open rates, click rates, and bounce rates from the Client's campaigns.

Information used to communicate with Client Users

  • • Account Maintenance. We use your email address to uniquely identify you when you log in and to communicate with you about your account. You will receive an email from us when you are added as a new user. If you forget your password, we will email you instructions for how to reset your password.
  • System Alerts. You may be sent brief system alerts to let you know about planned updates to the system that may affect your account.

As a result, please be aware that in such event we may transfer some or all of the information we have collected from or about you to a company acquiring all or part of our assets or to another company with which we have merged.

California Privacy

WordFly

The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides consumers with specific rights regarding their personal information. You have the right to request that businesses subject to the CCPA (which may include our Clients with whom you have a relationship) disclose certain information to you about their collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. In addition, you have the right to ask such businesses to delete personal information collected from you, subject to certain exceptions. If the business sells personal information, you have a right to opt-out of that sale. Finally, a business cannot discriminate against you for exercising a CCPA right.

When offering WordFly services to our Clients, Pop acts as a “service provider” under the CCPA and our receipt and collection of any consumer personal information is completed on behalf of our Clients in order for us to provide the Service. Please direct any requests for access or deletion of your personal information under the CCPA to the Client with whom you have a direct relationship.
