Privacy Policy

When you register for a SherpaDesk trial you can be certain that we have implemented comprehensive security practices to ensure that only you and those people you provide authorized access to can see your help desk. We respect your right to privacy and feel it is important for you to know how we handle the information we receive from you via our website at http:www.sherpadesk.com (the “Site”) and through our on-demand support platform, tools and services offered on the Site (the “Service”).

Information you Provide

When you register for the Service, we ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, company name and address. SherpaDesk uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing. This intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use your billing information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing onSherpaDesk's behalf.

SherpaDesk's practice is not to use such personal information for marketing purposes. SherpaDesk may use the collected personal information and other information SherpaDesk collects about your use of the Service to operate and make the Service available to you, for billing, identification and authentication, to contact you about your use of the Service, research purposes and to generally improve the content and functionality of the Service and Site.

SherpaDesk may also transmit or share your personal information with its third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and other technology and services required to operate and maintain the Service, which may require that your personal information be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of SherpaDesk and the authorized third parties referred to here. Although SherpaDesk owns the software, code, databases, all rights to the SherpaDesk application, you retain all rights to your data.

Cookies

When you visit the Site or use the Service, we use session “cookies” – a piece of information stored on your computer – to allow the Site or Service to uniquely identify your browser while you are logged in and to enable SherpaDesk to process your online transactions. Session cookies also help us confirm your identity and are required in order to use the Service. SherpaDesk uses persistent cookies that only SherpaDesk can read and use, to identify you as a SherpaDesk customer and make it easier for you to log in to the Service. Users who disable their web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our Site, but will not be able to access or take advantage of the Service.

Use of Your Personal Information

We will never sell your data to third parties. However, in the course of business, we may hire third party individuals and organizations to help us make the SherpaDesk Services better. These third parties include our web host provider, other SaaS providers, such as an email hosting service, payment processors or outside contractors we hire to perform maintenance or assist us in securing our website. We may also hire third parties to operate, maintain, repair, or otherwise improve or preserve our website or its underlying files or systems.

SherpaDesk may disclose Personal Information and Potential PII only to those of its employees and third party organizations that (1) need to know such information in order to process it on SherpaDesk’s behalf or to provide services as described above and (2) have agreed not to disclose it to any other parties without SherpaDesk’s consent. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Site and/or the Service, you consent to the transfer of information to such individuals and organizations in order to accomplish these purposes.

Before using or sharing your information with non-agent third parties in ways not discussed here or previously authorized by you, we will provide you Notice and an opportunity to control the further use or disclosure of your personal information.

If you are a registered user of the Service and have supplied your email address, SherpaDesk may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SherpaDesk  and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SherpaDesk takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of Personal Information and Potential PII.

In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. If we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information and Potential PII as set forth in this policy. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information and Potential IP, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information and Potential IP.

Information Sharing

Except as described in this policy, SherpaDesk  will not give, sell, rent, or loan any identifiable personal information to any third party. We may disclose such information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may also share such information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law. SherpaDesk  may also provide non-personal, summary or group statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related Site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

Children’s Personal Information

The Service and Site are not intended for, nor does SherpaDesk knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.

Protection of Information

SherpaDesk maintains reasonable security measures to protect your information from loss, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure. These technologies help ensure that your data is safe, secure, and only available to you and to those you provided authorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Changes to Privacy Policy

SherpaDesk may update this policy from time to time. You can review the most current version of this privacy policy at any time at http://www.sherpadesk.com/privacy. Your continued use of the Site or Service constitutes your agreement to be bound by such changes to the privacy policy. Your only remedy, if you do not accept the terms of this privacy policy, is to discontinue use of the Site and Service.

SherpaDesk may assign or transfer this privacy policy, and your user account and related information and data, to any person or entity that acquires or is merged with SherpaDesk.
