Mixmax Privacy Policy

Effective date: December 22, 2017

Thank you for using Mixmax! We take your privacy extremely seriously and would like to describe how we collect, use and protect your information when you access our website(s), products, services and applications (collectively, the “Services”).

What does this Privacy Policy cover?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services. We gather various types of Personal Information from our users, as explained in more detail below, and we use this Personal Information in order to make our Services available to you, to contact you, and to better understand how you use the Services. In certain cases, we may also share some Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at support@mixmax.com.

Will Mixmax ever change this Privacy Policy?

We’re constantly trying to improve our Services, so we may need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time as well, but we will alert you to changes by updating the date above and placing a notice on https://mixmax.com/privacy.html, by sending you an email, or by some other means. Your use of the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted will be considered to indicate your acceptance of the changes.

What Information does Mixmax Collect?

Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. When you create a new account to use the Services we will solicit your consent to connect your Google account to your new Mixmax account (using Google’s OAuth authentication method), thereby providing us with access to your email, Contacts, and Calendar. Although the OAuth authentication provides broad access to your Google account, Mixmax only collects your name and email address, and, during email composition, we temporarily store the content of your draft email message (however once the message is sent, draft content is transferred to your Gmail account and stored on Google’s servers, not Mixmax’s). In addition, when you send email using the Services we collect the recipient’s email address and IP address (in order to provide you with the recipient’s approximate location when the message is opened).

You can limit the amount of Personal Information transferred to us by being sure to complete and send your draft email messages or by deleting any unsent drafts if you decide not to send them. In keeping with standard online privacy practices, we also encourage users not to include highly sensitive information (such as social security numbers, financial information, or health care related information) in any emails in order to avoid transferring that data to our servers (even if only temporarily).

In addition, we collect Personal Information you submit to us, for example by completing a form on www.mixmax.com. In that case, we may communicate with you, for example by sending you promotional email offers, or emailing you about your use of the Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps enhance our engagement with you and generally improve our Services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, please indicate your preference by sending an email to support@mixmax.com.

Information Collected Automatically

Whenever you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features. We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns, and generally to improve the Services.

Information Collected From Other Websites and Do Not Track Policy

Through cookies we place on your browser or device, we may collect information about your online activity after you leave our Services. Just like any other usage information we collect, this information allows us to improve the Services and customize your online experience. Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we may collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services. Do Not Track signals are set on a browser-by-browser basis, so you must set them on every browser you use if you do not wish to be tracked.

Third Party Analytics Services

We use third party analytics services in order to better understand user engagement with the Services. When a user browses or uses the Services, these third party analytics services may collect the user’s IP address, browser type, and approximate location (based on the IP address). They may also use web logs or web beacons and may set and access cookies on your computer or other device. In order to refine our understanding of user engagement, we provide these services with a user’s name and email address (which we collected as part of the user’s account registration process).

Does Mixmax Share Personal Information?

We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. However, we may share your Personal Information with third parties as described in this section:

Agents and vendors: We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them, including in some cases the Personal Information you have provided to us, in order to make the Services available to you. For example, we may use third party hosting providers or software developers to help implement and maintain the Services. However, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Business Transfers: If we are involved in a reorganization, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that deal. We will notify you (for example, via a message to the email address associated with your account) of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.

Protection of Mixmax and Others: We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information that we believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our applicable terms of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Mixmax, our employees, our users, or others.

Is Personal Information about me secure?

We will use very diligent efforts to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

What Personal Information can I access?

Because the Personal Information you share with us via the Google OAuth authentication process originates in your Gmail account, if you want to modify that Personal Information you may do so through your Gmail account. Alternatively, you can email support@mixmax.com for access to, or to update or delete, your Personal Information that Mixmax has collected.

Industry-based compliance

Mixmax can be effectively deployed within a HIPAA-compliant environment. We have implemented reasonable and accurate safeguards around your electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI), including the 54 specific safeguards of the HIPAA Security Rule. We implement all types of controls - administrative, physical, and technical - against all types of risks - natural, environmental, and technical.

Transfer to the U.S. or Other Countries

We currently use datacenter facilities located exclusively in the United States. Your information will be stored and processed in the United States or other countries where we decide to maintain datacenter facilities in the future. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of information outside of your country, even if your country has more rigorous data protection standards. For any Personal Information that may be transferred from the European Economic Area, please see below regarding our participation in the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks.

EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks

As described in our Privacy Shield certification (available at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list, search for “Mixmax”), Mixmax participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks (together, the “Frameworks”) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of Personal Information from the European Union (EU) member countries and Switzerland, respectively. Mixmax is committed to subjecting all Personal Information received from EU member countries and Switzerland to the Frameworks’ applicable Principles, and Mixmax remains responsible for any of your Personal Information that it shares under the Onward Transfer Principle with third parties for external processing on our behalf (as described above in the section entitled “Does Mixmax share Personal Information”). In certain situations, Mixmax may be required to disclose Personal Information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

With respect to Personal Information received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Mixmax is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. Please contact us at privacy@mixmax.com with any questions or concerns regarding our privacy practices in relation to our Privacy Shield certification. If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, please contact our U.S.-based third-party dispute resolution provider (free of charge) at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request. Under certain conditions more fully described on the Privacy Shield website, you may be entitled to invoke binding arbitration when other dispute resolution procedures have been exhausted.
