We collect and control various types of personal data regarding our Users and visitors to our Sites. Such data is collected and generated through your interaction with us or with our Service, through automatic means, or directly from you, from other Users, from our Customers/Client, or from other third parties (including our Service Providers, as defined below). Specifically, we collect the following categories of data (which, to the extent it relates to an identified or identifiable individual, is deemed as “personal data”):

      Data automatically collected or generated: When you visit, interact with, or use our Service, we collect, record or generate certain technical data about you.

      Such data consists of connectivity, technical and aggregated usage data, such as IP addresses and general locations, device and application data (like type, operating system, mobile device or app id, browser version, locale and language settings used), date and time stamps of usage, the relevant cookies and pixels installed on or interacted with via such device, and the recorded activity (sessions, clicks, use of features, logged activities and other interactions) of visitors and Users in connection with our Service. In addition, phone calls (e.g., with our customer service or product consultants) may be automatically recorded, tracked and analyzed, for purposes including analytics, service-, operations-, and business quality control and improvements, training, and record-keeping purposes.

      User Data received from you: When you contact us, sign up to the Service and create your individual profile (“User Profile”), or sign up to an event that we host, organize or sponsor, you provide us with personal data.

      Our Customers may provide us with additional data such as their billing details, business needs and preferences.

User Data received from our Customers and Users: Customers and Users may provide us with the contact details of potential Users, such as their employees, team members and colleagues, in order for us to contact, invite or subscribe them as Users to our Service (including by using Single sign-on tools).
