Privacy Statement

Splice Machine, Inc. (“Splice Machine”) respects your right to privacy. This policy summarizes what personally identifiable information we may collect, how we might use this information, and other important topics relating to your privacy.

What Information We Collect

The only personally identifiable information (such as name, title, company name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) (“Personal Data”) that Splice Machine collects is any Personal Data that you voluntarily provide to us, for example, by completing an inquiry form through our website, by corresponding with us via e-mail, or by providing us or our third-party payment processor with credit card or other payment information. We also collect general information that cannot be used to identify you personally (“Anonymous Data”), such as the type of browser you use, the files you request, and the domain name and country from which you request information, and use this Anonymous Data to improve our website and better meet your needs. Please note that we do not intend to collect any Personal Data or other data from or about any individual under the age of 13 years.

How We Use Personally Identifiable Information

Splice Machine will use the Personal Data you supply to fulfill your orders for our products and services, to respond to your inquiries, and to supply you with requested information about our products and services. We may also use Personal Data to inform you about new features, products or services unless you explicitly instruct us not to do so (for example, by unsubscribing). By providing your Personal Data, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and you expressly consent to the processing of your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You acknowledge that Splice Machine is located in the United States and the applicable laws regarding processing of Personal Data may be less stringent than the laws in your country; by sending us your Personal Data, you consent to having it transferred to or processed or stored in the United States.

Your Choices

At any time, you may update your communications preferences with Splice Machine, including by unsubscribing from our email communications. We may need to use your Personal Data to notify you of updates to our Privacy Policy or other terms. You may update or correct your Personal Data or request deletion of your account information by emailing us at privacy@splicemachine.com; please note that we may be required by law or otherwise to retain your information, or to retain it for a set time before deleting it. Deleted information may remain in our archives. Otherwise, we will retain your information as necessary and appropriate to uphold our legal obligations, enforce our agreements, resolve disputes, and provide you with requested services.

Other Websites

This website may contain links to other sites owned or operated by third parties. We do not control those third parties or their sites, nor do we endorse or otherwise accept responsibility for the content or privacy policies of those sites.

Cookies

Some of our web pages may contain “cookies,” which are data that may be sent to your web browser and stored on your computer. Session cookies exist only during a particular browsing session; persistent cookies stay on your computer until they are deleted. Persistent cookies allow our server to “recognize” you when you visit our website in the future. You can delete cookies by following the instructions in your web browser, and most web browsers can be configured to reject cookies, or to notify you if a cookie is sent to you.

Social Media Features

Our website includes social media features and widgets (e.g., the button that allows you to follow Splice Machine on Twitter). Third-party companies created these features and widgets and provided them to us (such as Twitter, in our example), and your interactions with them are governed by those third parties’ privacy policies.

Advertising and Analytics

Splice Machine may use a third-party advertising network, such as Google’s AdWords network, that uses cookies to collect non-Personal Data about your activities on our website and other websites and to provide you with targeted advertising across the internet based on your interests as expressed through your online activity. If you wish to opt out of having this information used to provide you with targeted ads, you can opt out as follows: to opt out of Google’s use of cookies, click here to visit Google’s Ads settings; and to opt out of third-party use of cookies, click here to visit the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page. Please note that opting out does not mean you will not receive advertising; you will continue to see advertisements displayed, but they will be generic rather than tailored to your web preferences and usage patterns.

Likewise, we may use Google’s “Google Analytics” web analytics service, which uses cookies to gather general information about use of our website by you and other visitors, transmit it to a Google server, analyze the results, and provide reports and related services. To learn more about Google Analytics or to opt out, click here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/

We Do Not Sell Your Personally Identifiable Information

Splice Machine does not share, sell, rent, or trade your personally identifiable information without your consent, except as set forth in this section.

We may provide our third-party contractors, advisors, and service partners, such as (for example) the companies we use for our email newsletters, with access to your personally identifiable information for them to use on our behalf in the course of providing services for us.

We use third-party services to support our sales and marketing efforts. One such service provider is LeadLander, which places a cookie on your browser and shares any contact information you submit to us with its other network partners and, in return, provides us with any contact information submitted to its other network partners when the visitor associated with that information through a cookie browses our website; the original source of the contact information is not disclosed. This allows us and other network partners to better focus and target our sales and marketing efforts to you and other potential customers. If you do not want to be recognized, you can delete the cookie or enable "Do Not Track" on your browser; according to LeadLander, cookies in browsers with "Do Not Track" enabled will expire within approximately forty-eight hours and, while you will still be identified individually in our own internal reports, your personal information will not be shared with other LeadLander network partners. To correct any errors in your information or request its removal from the LeadLander network, contact support@leadlander.com with your request.

We reserve the right to share or transfer your information as part of any merger, acquisition of part or all of our business, financing, or similar corporate transaction. We may release your personally identifiable information without your consent if we believe it necessary as required by law or to comply with court order, subpoena, or similar requirements, or to enforce our agreements or policies, or to protect us or third parties against harm or illegal activities.

Modifications and Updates

Splice Machine reserves the right to modify or update this privacy policy at any time by posting an updated Privacy Policy on the Splice Machine website, posting a notice of update, providing you with email notice of the update, or any combination thereof. Continued use of our website, products, and services after the effective date of an update means that you agree to be bound by the updated terms.

California Residents’ Privacy Rights

California residents may request and receive, at no cost, certain information about any Personal Data that we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of Personal Data that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared that information. If you are a California resident and would like this information, please submit your request to privacy@splicemachine.com.
