“CenterStone Services” include our:
- iVendix SaaS applications
- iVendix Downloadable Products
A “Device” is any computer used to access the CenterStone Services, including without limitation a desktop, laptop, mobile phone, tablet, or other consumer electronic device.
Unless otherwise stated, our iVendix SaaS applications and our iVendix Downloadable Products are treated the same for the purposes of this document.
Content: any information or data that you upload, submit, post, create, transmit, store or display in a CenterStone Service.
iVendix Downloadable Products: CenterStone’s downloadable software products and mobile applications that are installed by customers on an infrastructure of their choice.
Personal Information: information that may be used to readily identify or contact you as an individual person, such as: name, job title, address, email address, or phone number. Personal Information does not include information that has been anonymized such that it does not allow for the ready identification of specific individuals.
Websites: CenterStone’s websites, including but not limited to CenterStonetech.com, iVendix.com, and our client-specific websites, sub-domains and pages.
Information you provide to us
We collect the following information:
Account and Profile Information: We collect information about you and your company as you register for an account, create or modify your profile, place orders and make purchases through, use, access, or interact with the CenterStone Services (including but not limited to when you upload, download, collaborate on or share Content). Information we collect includes
- Contact information such as name, email address, mailing address, and phone number
- Profile information such as a username and job title
- Preferences information such as notification and marketing preferences
Content: We collect and store Content that you create, input, submit, post, upload, transmit, store or display in the process of using our iVendix SaaS applications or Websites. Such Content includes any Personal Information or other sensitive information that you choose to include (“incidentally-collected Personal Information”).
Information we collect from your use of CenterStone Services
Analytics Information from Website and iVendix SaaS applications: We collect analytics information when you use the CenterStone Services to help us improve our products and services. This analytics information consists of the feature and function of the CenterStone Service being used, the associated domain name, the username and IP address of the individual who is using the feature or function (which will include Personal Information if the Personal Information was incorporated into the username), and additional information required to detail the operation of the function and which parts of the CenterStone Services are being affected.
The analytics information we collect includes elements of Content related to the function the user is performing. As such, the analytics information we collect may include Personal Information or sensitive business information that the user has included in Content that the user chose to upload, submit, post, create, transmit, store or display in an CenterStone Service.
Analytics Information Derived from Content. Analytics information also consists of data we collect as a result of running queries against Content across our user base for the purposes of generating Usage Data. “Usage Data” is aggregated data about a group or category of services, features or users that does not contain Personal Information. For example, we may query Content to determine the most common types of workflows that users use, or we may query Content to determine the most popular job titles for our users in order to better understand the composition of our user base.
Though we may happen upon sensitive or Personal Information as we compile Usage Data from Content across user instances, this is a byproduct of our efforts to understand broader patterns and trends. It is not a concerted effort by us to examine the Content of any particular customer. CenterStone does NOT collect any information about age, gender, race, etc., of our users.
Analytics Information from iVendix Downloadable Products: We collect analytics information when you use our iVendix Downloadable Products to help us improve our products and services. Our iVendix Downloadable Products contain a feature that sends information about the technical operation of the iVendix Downloadable Products on your systems (“System Information”) to us. System Information includes information about (a) the server environment in which the iVendix Downloadable Product is operating: OS type and version, JVM version, Java environment properties, CPU type, RAM allocation, language and locale settings, database type and version, and disk utilization, as well as (b) user client information, for example: browser type and version, native client type and version, and client device specifications (e.g. screen resolution, OS version, device type, etc.). In addition, we collect analytics information from iVendix Downloadable Products that is a subset of the analytics information described above for Websites and iVendix SaaS applications. As with Websites and iVendix SaaS applications, the analytics information we collect includes elements of Content related to the function the user is performing, but with an important caveat.
Installer Analytics, Software Updates & License Information from iVendix Downloadable Products: Our iVendix Downloadable Products communicate with CenterStone servers for licensing purposes, as well as to check for updates and patches. Examples of information we collect for these purposes include the name and version of the iVendix Downloadable Product and the server ID, and IP address of the customer instance.
How we use Information we collect
General Uses: We use the Information we collect about you (including Personal Information to the extent applicable) for a variety of purposes, including to:

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will not use Personal Information appearing in our Analytics Logs or Web Logs for any purpose. The use of Information collected through our CenterStone Services shall be limited to the purposes disclosed in this policy.
Compiling aggregate analytics information: Because our iVendix SaaS applications and iVendix Downloadable Products are some of the most configurable in the market, we make extensive use of analytics information (including log and configuration data) to understand how our products are being configured and used, how they can be improved for the benefit of all of our users, and to develop new products and services. As such we generate Usage Data (as defined above) from the web logs and analytics logs described above, including the Content elements captured in such logs, as well as from the Content stored in the Websites and iVendix SaaS applications.
Information sharing and disclosure
We will not share or disclose any of your Personal Information or Content with third parties except as described in this policy. We do not sell your Personal Information or Content.
Your Use: When you use CenterStone Services, Content you provide will be displayed back to you. Certain features of CenterStone Services allow you to submit that content, such as sales orders, to a specific CenterStone client. We do not share your Content with anyone outside CenterStone except the specific CenterStone client you intended and already have an established business relationship with.
Collaboration: As a natural result of using CenterStone Services, you may create Content and grant permission to other CenterStone users to access it for the purposes of collaboration. Some of the collaboration features of CenterStone Services display your profile information, including Personal Information included in your profile, to users with whom you have shared your Content.

These service providers may have access to or process your Information for the purpose of providing those services. Some of our pages utilize white-labeling techniques to serve content from our service providers while providing the look and feel of our site. Please be aware that you are providing your Information to these third parties acting on behalf of CenterStone.

You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on the CenterStone Services of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information.
Aggregated or Anonymized Data: We may also share aggregated or anonymized information that does not directly identify you.
With Your Consent. We may share your Personal Information with third parties when we have your consent to do so.

Data storage, transfer and security
CenterStone hosts data with hosting service providers located in the United States. The servers on which Personal Information is stored are kept in a controlled environment. While we take reasonable efforts to guard your Personal Information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any incidentally-collected Personal Information you choose to store in Websites or iVendix SaaS applications are maintained at levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations you may have relating to that information.
Where data is transferred over the Internet as part of a Website or SaaS Product, the data is encrypted using industry standard SSL (HTTPS).
Where iVendix Downloadable Products are used, responsibility of securing access to the data you store in the iVendix Downloadable Products rests with you and not CenterStone. We strongly recommend that administrators of iVendix Downloadable Products configure SSL to prevent interception of data transmitted over networks and to restrict access to the databases and other storage used to hold data.
You may opt out of receiving promotional communications from CenterStone by using the unsubscribe link within each email or by emailing us to have your contact information removed from our promotional email list database. Although opt-out requests are usually processed immediately, please allow ten (10) business days for a removal request to be processed. Even after you opt out from receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive transactional messages from us regarding CenterStone’s Services. You can opt-out of some notification messages in your account settings.
Accessing and updating your information
We acknowledge that EU or Swiss individuals have the right under Privacy Shield to correct, update, amend, or remove your Personal Information in your account settings or by directing your query to your account administrator. You may also contact Support Services or contact us by postal mail using the address listed below. We will respond to your request for access within 30 days.
You can often remove Content using editing tools associated with that Content. In some cases, you may need to contact your administrator to request they remove the Content. You can contact us to request removal of Personal Information from CenterStone Community services.
You or your administrator may be able to deactivate your CenterStone Services account. If you can deactivate your own account, you can most often do so in your account settings. Otherwise, please contact your administrator. To deactivate an organization account, please contact Support Services. To deactivate an account made for you without authorization, please contact us at the contact information below.
We will retain your account information for as long as your account is active, or as reasonably useful for commercial purposes or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If your account is managed by an administrator, that account administrator may have control with regards to how your account information is retained and deleted.

If you are visiting from the European Union or Switzerland, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, please note that you are agreeing to the transfer of your Personal Information to the United States to us.
