What Personal Information About Customers Does Cloud9 Analytics Collect?

Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with a friendly, customized, and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information from our customers:

Information You Provide to Us:

Cloud9 Analytics collects identifying information when you use the Service, when you visit the Site (including, without limitation, any Cloud9 web pages or landing pages), and when you enter promotions or contests. For example, we require customers who register to use the Service to give us the following personal information: their name, company name, address, phone number, and e-mail address, and financial qualification and billing information, such as billing name and address, credit card number, and the identity of users within the organization that will be using the Service. We also require that you provide us with your login credentials in order for us to access your sales data information and deliver the Service to you. When you initially express interest obtaining additional information about the Service, or when you register for the Service, we may also ask for additional types of personal information, such as title, department name, fax number, or additional company information. We may also request demographic information and unique identifiers in order to provide you with a more personalized experience or verify your passwords.

All financial and billing information that we collect from you is used for the purposes of checking your qualifications as a prospective customer and billing you for the Service. Such billing information is not used by Cloud9 Analytics for marketing or promotional purposes. Cloud9 Analytics may use a third-party intermediary to manage the credit card and billing processing. This intermediary is solely a link in the distribution chain, and is not permitted to store, retain, or use the information provided, except for the sole purpose of credit card and billing processing.

Customers will be use the Service to analyze their sales data ("Customer Data"). Cloud9 Analytics will not review, share, distribute, print, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided for in the Service Agreement or as may be required by law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer Data may at times be viewed or accessed by Cloud9 Analytics for the purpose of resolving a problem, support issue, or for investigating a suspected violation of the Service Agreement, or as may be required by law.

Automatic Information:

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us via our website. Cloud9 Analytics automatically receives and records certain "traffic data" on our server logs including your IP address, Cloud9 Analytics cookie information, the page you requested, and your communications and interactions with other site registrants. Cloud9 Analytics uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer the Service.

We automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Site and use of components of our Service. We may use this information to provide research, advice and information, including, without limitation, for benchmarking purposes (e.g. we may publish an industry white paper that uses data collected through the use of our Service). This data is only used in the aggregate. This type of collective data also enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Service so we can make the Service more useful to as many customers as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our Site and Service. We may share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use areas of our Site and our Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience.

We also collect and use information for internal purposes. For example, if you are a registered user of the Cloud9 Analytics' subscription-based Service, we may keep records in your account history of your complaints about other registered users online behavior, and any reported violation of our Service Agreement that you or someone on your account may have committed.

Many companies offer programs that help you to visit web sites anonymously. While Cloud9 Analytics will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.

E-mail Communications:

We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from Cloud9 Analytics if your computer supports this type of program, in order to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. We may also send out emails with information regarding Cloud9 Analytics or our partners including promotions and events. Customers can opt out of being contacted by us by sending an email to

Information From Other Sources:

For purposes such as improving personalization of our Service, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
