Our Privacy Policy has been updated 11/23/2015

Making field marketing simpler, smarter, and more productive is the mission of Outfield. Our registered users (“Members”) share their professional identities, engage with other Members, exchange knowledge and insights, post and view relevant content, and find new opportunities. Unregistered viewers (“Nonmembers”) may not view Member's content. Members within your company or team ("Organization") may view your content.

Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

• We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties under the following conditions: (1) with your approval or consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Outfield, its Members and engaged Nonmembers, and the public.

• We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.

This Privacy Policy applies to all Outfield domains and the Outfield mobile applications, Outfield platform technology, and all other Outfield websites, apps, developer platforms and other products and services (collectively “Outfield” or the “Services”). We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Service, or by other means so that you may review the changes before you continue to use Outfield. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Continuing to use Outfield after we publish or communicate a notice about any changes to this Privacy Policy means that you are consenting to the changes.

We collect information when you sync non-Outfield content with your account. We use this information to improve your experience. You can remove synced information whenever you'd like.

Outfield makes other tools available to sync information with Outfield, and may also develop additional features that allow Members to use their Outfield account in conjunction with other third-party services. For example, Outfield’ mobile applications may allow you to sync your device’s calendar, email and/or contacts apps with Outfield.

Any information that you upload or sync with Outfield is covered by the User Agreement and this Privacy Policy. You can remove your information at your convenience using the features Outfield makes available or in accordance with Section 3. You can remove synced information at any time.

If you are logged in on outfieldapp.com or another Service or a Outfield cookie on your device identifies you, your usage information and the log data described in Section 1.10 of this policy, such as your IP address, will be associated with your account. Even if you’re not logged into a Service, we log information about devices used to access our Services, including IP address.

We may in the future target ads to you on and off Outfield, based on information you included in your profile and your use of Outfield.

We may target ads to Members and Visitors both on and off Outfield through a variety of ad networks and ad exchanges, using:

• Advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, and mobile identifiers as permitted by mobile platforms both on and off Outfield;

At times we may collect information from the devices and networks that you use to access Outfield. This information helps us improve and secure our Services.

When you visit or leave Outfield sites or apps (whether as a Member or Visitor) by clicking a hyperlink or when you view a plugin on a third-party site, we automatically receive the URL of the site from which you came or the one to which you are directed. Also, advertisers receive the URL of the page that you are on when you click an ad on Outfield.

We may also receive location data passed to us from third-party services or GPS-enabled devices that you have set up, which we use to show you local information on our mobile or web applications. Most mobile devices allow you to prevent real time location data being sent to Outfield, and of course Outfield will honor your settings.

In the case of our Android apps, you will be provided notice of the types of data (e.g. location) that will be sent to us. If you choose to use our app after this notice, we process this data to enable registration or preview product features for you. If you choose not to become a Member, we will delete this information.

Furthermore, new partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new types of information.

2.5. Sharing Information with Affiliates

We may share your personal information with our Outfield affiliates (meaning entities controlled by, controlling or under common control with Outfield) outside of the Outfield entity that is your data controller as necessary to provide the Services. By agreeing to this Privacy Policy, you are consenting to this sharing.

For clarity, Outfield and its affiliates combine information internally across different Services.

2.6. Sharing Information with Third Parties

We do not rent or sell personal information that you have not posted on Outfield, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We will not disclose personal information that is not published to your profile or generated through engagement with other Outfield services without your consent or to carry out your instructions (for example, to process payment information) unless Outfield has a good faith belief that disclosure is permitted by law or is reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with a legal requirement or process, including, but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this Privacy Policy or our User Agreement; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties; (4) respond to Member service inquiries; or (5) protect the rights, property, or safety of Outfield, our Members, Visitors, or the public. See Section 2.14 for additional details about Outfield’ compliance with legal requests for information.

Outfield supports middleware providers that offer archiving solutions to firms subject to financial services regulation, which, with your permission, facilitate the archiving of your communications and other Outfield activity by a third party for compliance purposes. Content distributed through Outfield’ sharing features and third-party integrations may result in displaying some of your personal information outside of Outfield.

2.7. Polls and Surveys

Polls and Surveys may be conducted by Outfield, Members, or third parties. We may use third parties to deliver incentives to you to participate in surveys or polls. If the delivery of incentives requires your contact information, you may be asked to provide personal information to the third party fulfilling the incentive offer, which will be used only for the purpose of delivering incentives and verifying your contact information. It is up to you whether you provide this information, or whether you desire to take advantage of an incentive. Your consent to use any personally identifiable information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by the party conducting it.

2.8. Search

You can search for Members and content in your Organization. For example, you can find places created by other Members within your Organization. We use personal information from Outfield, including Member profiles and Organization content to inform and refine our search service.

2.9. Organizations

If you participate in Outfield Organizations, or share content, you should be aware that any information you choose to disclose using these services can be read, collected, and used by other Members in these Organizations. Outfield is not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these forums. Some content in Outfield Organizations may be public and searchable on the Internet if the Organization administrator decides to make it public. However, by default this information is private to the Organization and the Organization administrator is encouraged to inform the Organization members before making such information public.

2.10. Testimonials and Advertisements Placed through Outfield Ads

If you provide any testimonials about our goods or services, we may post those testimonials you place in connection with our promotion of these services to third parties. Testimonials and advertisements may include your name and other personal information that you have provided.

2.11. Compliance with Legal Process and Other Disclosures

It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a Member or Visitor when required by law, subpoena, or other legal process, or if Outfield has a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the User Agreement, investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of Outfield, our Members, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Members about legal demands for their data when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to challenge every demand.

2.12. Disclosures to Others as the Result of a Change in Control or Sale of Outfield

We may also disclose your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of the assets of Outfield, a subsidiary, or division, or as the result of a change in control of the company or one of its affiliates, or in preparation for any of these events. Any third party to which Outfield transfers or sells Outfield assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy.

2.13. Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services (e.g. maintenance, analysis, audit, marketing and development). These third parties have limited access to your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to Outfield not to disclose or use it for other purposes.

3. Your Choices & Obligations

3.1. Rights to Access, Correct, or Delete Your Information, and Closing Your Account

You have a right to (1) access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by Outfield regarding your profile, (2) change or remove your content, and (3) close your account. You can also contact us for any account information which is not on your profile or readily accessible to you. If you close your account(s), your information will generally be removed from the Service within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information and will de-personalize any logs or other backup information within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.

Please note: Information you have shared with others or that others have copied may also remain visible after you have closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile. Outfield Organizations content associated with closed accounts may represent an unknown user as the source. In addition, you may not be able to access, correct, or eliminate any information about you that other Members copied or exported out of Outfield, because this information may not be in our control. Your content may be displayed in search engine results until the search engine refreshes its cache.

3.2. Data Retention

We retain the personal information you provide while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you services. Outfield may retain your personal information even after you have closed your account if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes between Members, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement. We may retain personal information, for a limited period of time, if requested by law enforcement. Outfield Customer Service may retain information for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only, but we generally delete or de-personalize closed account data consistent with Section 3.1., except in the case of our plugin impression data, which we will try to de-personalize at the time of collection, but in any event, we will de-personalize within 7 days.

We may store data of users from third party sources under the condition that it is permitted by the users and the holder of such information. By adding such information to their Outfield’ account, users have granted permission for Outfield to store such data. At any time users have the ability to remove such data from their accounts.

3.3. Your Obligations

As a Member, you have certain obligations to other Members. Some of these obligations are imposed by applicable law and regulations and others have become commonplace in communities of like-minded Members such as Outfield:

Any violation of these guidelines or those detailed in our User Agreement or elsewhere may lead to the restriction, suspension, or termination of your account at the sole discretion of Outfield.

We also offer secure https access to the outfieldapp.com website. To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to Outfield. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information. Please note that emails, instant messaging, and similar means of communication with other Members are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
