Corporate Website and Platform Interface
Information about visitors collected by the Corporate Website and Platform Interface
Our Corporate Website provides information about Catchpoint and the Catchpoint Services. The Corporate Website also provides access to the portal used by Catchpoint Services customers to log into the Platform Interface. The Platform Interface is also accessible via the Catchpoint app.
The following information is collected about a visitor to the Corporate Website and by the app, where relevant:
• The Personally Identifiable Information that is voluntarily submitted by a visitor, in connection with, for example, a request for more information about Catchpoint Services or for a free trial;
• The information that is automatically provided by the visitor’s computer browser (“Browser Information”), such as the computer operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address (from which we can infer a visitor’s location), time and day of access, browser type and language, and the website the consumer visited before visiting the Corporate Website;
• The username and password that is entered by an authorized individual user (“Catchpoint Services User”) to gain access to the Platform Interface; and
• The name, email address, and company affiliation (i.e., the Personally Identifiable Information) of each Catchpoint Services User logged into the Platform Interface.
How information about visitors is collected by the Corporate Website and Platform Interface
Cookies are used to respond, by way of example, to a visitor’s request for more information about the Catchpoint Services or for a free trial. Cookies also authenticate the username and password of a Catchpoint Services User entered by that Catchpoint Services User in the Platform Interface. Some cookies are set by the Corporate Website and the Platform Interface to permit our service providers to perform services on our behalf. Any information transferred to our service providers is governed by our agreements with those service providers.
Embedded are used to measure the pages and features of the Corporate Website used by visitors. Embedded scripts are also used by Catchpoint’s service provider to collect the name, email address and company affiliation of Catchpoint Services Users.
Web beacons (or tags or pixels) are used to transfer information between a visitor’s browser and the computers of Catchpoint’s service providers in order to power some features of the Corporate Website (for example, to automate requests for further information, and to enable web analytics) on Catchpoint’s behalf.
How Catchpoint uses the information it collects from the Corporate Website and Platform Interface
Catchpoint uses the information collected through the Corporate Website for the purposes for which such information was provided. For example, if you share your name and contact information with us when submitting a request for a free benchmark or an inquiry through our website, we will use this information to respond to you and provide you with the services or information requested. Where we seek and obtain your consent to engage in these processing activities, we will rely on such consent to process your personal data until you withdraw it. In other cases, we will process your personal data as necessary to perform our contractual obligations with you or to otherwise provide the requested services or information.
Catchpoint uses the information collected from the Corporate Website as necessary for its legitimate business purposes. Depending on the context, Catchpoint can use the information collected to respond to a visitor’s request, to communicate with visitors about Catchpoint and the Catchpoint Services, or to otherwise operate, manage, secure and improve Catchpoint, the Corporate Website, and the Catchpoint Services.
Catchpoint does not sell, rent or lease the Personally Identifiable Information that it collects on the Corporate Website and Platform Interface to third parties. The Personally Identifiable Information collected from the Corporate Website and Platform Interface may be shared with Catchpoint’s affiliates, and with the service providers that work on Catchpoint’s behalf. These service providers are restricted from using Personally Identifiable Information in any way other than to provide services for us and subject to our documented instructions only. Such information may also be disclosed by Catchpoint as required by law, valid court order, or other request from a governmental authority.
Individuals from the European Economic Area only
Catchpoint will only collect Personally Identifiable Information from visitors to the Corporate Website where: (a) Catchpoint has your consent to do so (e.g., when you voluntarily submit an inquiry through the website), or (b) where Catchpoint has a legitimate interest (or a third party has a legitimate interest) that is not overridden by your data protection interests. If you have given consent, you can reverse that consent at any time.
Information collected by the Catchpoint Services about consumers
The Catchpoint Services measure the performance of our customers’ websites, web apps and web services (each, a “Web Property”) by testing speed, reliability and availability. With the exception of the following, the Catchpoint Services run tests that model a hypothetical consumer’s experience on a customer’s Web Property using equipment located worldwide that is managed by Catchpoint Systems. In addition, the Catchpoint Service known as “Real User Measurement” (the “RUM Service”) is used by Catchpoint’s customers to measure a consumer’s actual experience of a Web Property. The RUM Service measures how fast a web page and its components load on a consumer’s browser to provide web developers with information to improve speed and reliability, and to detect and fix errors. With the exception of the RUM Service, the Catchpoint Services do not measure or collect information about actual consumer visits or actual consumers.
In connection with providing the RUM Service to a customer, Catchpoint collects the following information about a consumer from a customer’s Web Property:
• Browser Information; and
• Information about a consumer’s usage of the Web Property that our customer asks Catchpoint to collect, which can include, for example, factors such as the number of visits, the number of page views per visit, whether the visit results in a purchase or other transaction, and whether the Web Property produced any errors during the visit.
How the RUM Service collects information about consumers
In addition, Catchpoint Services is authorized by our customers to set a Catchpoint cookie on our customers’ Web Properties in connection with providing the RUM Service. These cookies are used by the RUM Service to recognize a returning visitor, and to determine the number of unique visitors to a Web Property.
How Catchpoint uses the information collected by the Catchpoint Services
The information collected by the Catchpoint Services on a customer’s behalf is owned by that customer, and our ability to use that information is limited by Catchpoint’s contract with our customer. Catchpoint is permitted to use that information to provide reporting and analysis services for our customer’s benefit. Catchpoint is also permitted to share “aggregated” information collected from many companies with our customers, prospective customers, and partners in order to improve our products and services, to provide reports and market research, and to understand market trends. Aggregated information does not identify individuals or our customers or website URLs. This aggregated information may be transferred to a successor in interest to Catchpoint, such as a company that acquires Catchpoint or the Catchpoint Services. Catchpoint is also permitted to disclose information as required by law, valid court order, or other request from a governmental authority.
How Catchpoint’s customers use the information collected by Catchpoint
Our customers use the reports, analytics and metrics compiled by the Catchpoint Services to operate, identify issues on, improve and optimize their Web Properties. The Catchpoint Services help our customers to provide a better user experience to the people who use their Web Properties. To learn more about how a particular company or Web Property uses the information that Catchpoint collects on its behalf, please consult the privacy notice for that Web Property or company.

What is the GDPR and who does it cover?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is a data privacy regulation passed by the European Union Parliament that will have the force of law on May 25, 2018. The GDPR replaces the EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC) that was previously in effect. The GDPR gives EU citizens certain privacy rights over their personal data, including security, confidentiality, the right to consent to data collection, the right to erasure of data, the right to notice of data usage and many others.
The GDPR imposes obligations on organizations that are located in the EU or that control (a “data controller”) or process (a “data processor”) the personal data of EU citizens, including the way they access, acquire, share, and store personal data and how they provide individuals with access to their own personal data.
What is personal data?
Personal data is information that can be used to directly or indirectly identify a natural person. Personal data includes names, email addresses, IP addresses, photos and many other types of information.
What are data controllers and data processors?
An organization can be either a data controller or a data processor with regard to personal data, or it can be both of these. A data controller decides the purpose and means of processing personal data. A data processor processes personal data for a data controller.
What is Catchpoint doing about the GDPR?
We believe that data privacy is a fundamental right of individuals and that respecting and protecting the privacy of individuals that use or are affected by its service is of the utmost importance. We are committed to keeping personal data secure and complying with the GDPR. We are working with customers worldwide to prepare for using our services after the GDPR comes into effect, and to ensure support for customers for their own GDPR requirements. Where personal data controlled by Catchpoint customers is transferred outside of the European Economic Area, those customers must ensure that the data is processed in compliance with applicable data protection law, including the GDPR. Such customers may need data protection agreements in place to achieve those aims. Customers can obtain Catchpoint’s data protection agreement by submitting a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Catchpoint is SOC 2 compliant and has implemented data security and control measures to help ensure that any personal data that it maintains is protected and secure. See more on Catchpoint’s security here.
