SaaS Markets is committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors’ personally identifiable information. To better protect your privacy, and so you can understand our privacy practices, we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used by SaaS Markets.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
To enable visitors to take advantage of SaaS Markets’ services, we collect certain types of personally identifiable information from both software vendors and software buyers.
Software Vendors’ Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect the following types of personally identifiable information from vendors to enable them to have their company and product information listed on our site: company name and a company contact’s name, e-mail, and telephone number. In addition, we collect certain non-personally identifiable information about the vendor’s company, including location of headquarters, number of employees, application types and customers. The information that we collect from software vendors enables them to offer buyers opportunities to learn about products and services, and to facilitate software transactions.
Software Users’ and Purchasers’ Personally Identifiable Information
We do not require software buyers to register in order to conduct research using the SaaS Markets website. However, if a buyer chooses to fill out an RFI form, or a Contact Vendor form, we then collect personally identifiable information including name, company name, email address, and phone number. We pass this information on to software vendors when a software buyer has requested us to do so.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information about our visitors when you visit many of our web pages, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Firefox, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, (e.g., Windows NT or Mac OS) and the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink).
We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the design and content of our site, and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage.
Updating Your Information
To enhance your experience with our site, we may use “cookies.” Cookies are text files we place in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies, by themselves, do not tell us your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information, unless you choose to provide this information to us by, for example, registering at one of our sites. However, once you choose to furnish the site with personally identifiable information, this information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
Our site contains links to other websites (e.g., sites that provide information on specific software categories) whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
We sometimes may offer promotions that are sponsored by or co-sponsored with identified third parties. By virtue of their sponsorship, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that visitors voluntarily submit to participate in the promotion. SaaS Markets has no control over the third-party sponsors’ use of this information. The particular promotion will provide you with reasonable notice of the third party sponsor(s), who will obtain such information at the time the personally identifiable information is requested.
We use reasonable technological, physical and other measures to keep your information protected from unauthorized access. Due to the nature of the Internet and related technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and, as such, we expressly disclaim any such obligation.
