1. Our Commitment to Privacy

We have made a commitment to be good citizens. We consider protecting and respecting your personal information as an essential part of that responsibility. This Privacy Policy describes the what, hows, and whys of collecting your information. To make it easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and at every point where we request personally identifiable information. In this Privacy Policy, we sometimes refer to “you”. “You” may be a visitor to one of our websites, a user of one or more of our Online Services, or a purchaser of our Licensed Products. We’ll do our best to clarify who we are referring to at various points in the policy. This Privacy Policy also describes your choices regarding how your data is used, and how you can access, update, or delete this information. We only collect the minimum amount of personal information necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us; we keep it only for as long as we have valid reasons to keep it; we never sell or rent it to third parties, and we only use it as this Privacy Policy describes. Our business model is a very traditional one: we provide products and services, and customers pay us for them. In other words, you are the customer, not the product.

It is your sole responsibility to keep your user name, password, and other sensitive information confidential. If you become aware of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security, you must notify Linear Squared immediately. If you forget your password, we send you a secure link via email that lets you reset it.

3.7 User Account Information

We have the concept of a “User Account”, we store your name, email address, and if you upload it, a photo to use as your avatar. We use this information to identify you as a user of our product and services.

3.8 Data on License Products

Our Licensed Products do not “call home”, nor transmit any data to our servers. The only personal data we store for license products is related to the purchase transaction information

If you send us an email to an address that ends in ‘@linearsquared.com’, or uses one of the online forms on our website www.linearsquared.com, we collect your name and email address and any additional information and documents you send us in your correspondence. We keep that data in our help desk indefinitely. Customer interaction history helps us provide you with better customer service and helps us research how to improve our products and services. We also use this information to proactively contact you if we see from our logs that you’re having an issue with our Services, or if we resolved an issue you reported.

This information is used for debugging and DDOS prevention.

4. Third-Party Vendors

In order to keep your data as secure as possible, we don’t own any servers of our own. Instead, we rely on best-in-class third-party services to store your data more securely than we would be able to do ourselves. Here’s the list of the vendors we use, and links to their privacy policies:

5. How to Access or Control Your Data
If you have any questions or concerns about how your Personal Data is processed, or if you want a copy of your data, or want to rectify it or delete it (to the extent that’s possible by law), don’t hesitate to email us at privacy@linearsquared.com. Linear Squared services give you a way to access your personal information and correct it, via user settings or a billing page. To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information. You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. We will respond as quickly as possible, and certainly within 30 days. We need to retain certain information for record-keeping purposes, to complete transactions or to comply with our legal obligations.

6. Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. If we become aware of a data breach that affects your personal data, we will notify you (and the appropriate national supervisory authorities) within 72 hours.

7. Who Can See Schedules, Plans, Forecasts, or Other Reports Generated?

Our Licensed Products do not “call home”, nor transmit any data to our servers. So only you and employees of your organization have access to above. For the Linear Squared products that have the concept of owners, they will be able to see your schedules, plans, forecasts, or other reports generated as well. For Online Services some Linear Squared employees will also have access, according to the following guidelines:

  • We restrict who at Linear Squared can access customer data to only senior members of the team, and never to outside parties.
  • We only access your data in response to a customer support question, or to debug and fix an issue.
  • We never make changes to anything unless explicitly requested by you.
  • We never share what we see with other customers, the general public, or the rest of the Linear Squared staff.
  • We might give access to government, law, and order authorities if requested in writing. We’ll try not to, but we don’t have the resources to fight the government. We’ll also keep you informed as much as we can if this happens.

8. Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information on our Online Service or Licensed Product from those we actually know are under 16, and no part of our Online Service or Licensed Product is structured to attract anyone under 16. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal data, we will take steps to delete such information. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at privacy@linearsquared.com.

9. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may change this privacy policy from time to time. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide more prominent notice by adding a notice on our homepage, product login screens, or by sending you an email notification
