COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
The kinds of personal information that we receive, and how we process that personal information, depends on whether we are acting on behalf of our customers, or whether we are collecting and using personal information on our own behalf.
How we collect and use personal information on behalf of our customers
When our customers’ personnel use the Platform to access our customers’ environments, we may collect certain personal information belonging to those personnel on behalf of our customers.
Login/Account Creation: Both customer personnel and customer administrators may log in using third-party single sign-on providers (e.g., GitHub or Google). Customer administrators also have the option of creating an account instead of using a single sign-on solution. When users log in using single sign-on, we may collect certain information associated with your account on the third party's site (e.g., name, username, email address, profile picture). When an account is created manually, we will collect personal information including first and last name, email address, as well as a password chosen by the user.
We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (such as letters, phone calls or email messages). If you become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of your account, you are required to notify us immediately.
Connecting to the Customer Environment: Our customers’ personnel and administrators may use the Platform to connect to those customers’ environments. When personnel and administrators connect to a customer environment, we collect information including user identity passed through single sign-on (where used), operating system and device information (e.g., user agent, IP address), and if enabled, session recording data. Session recording data includes any customer personnel’s interaction with the client environment, this may include text input, SSH output, database queries (input only), and HTTP DOM data. This information helps our customers diagnose usability problems and identify areas for improvement. Border0 does not re-sell or otherwise make this data available to third parties.
Support Services: We may collect certain information from our customers’ personnel (such as name, email address, your phone number and query) when we provide user support services by phone, email or within the Platform.
Use of the Services: We may monitor use of the Platform by our customers’ personnel or other authorized users in order to detect, investigate or prevent any actual or potential violation of our terms and conditions. This information is automatically collected from you when you use our Platform.
We may also generate aggregated, non-identifiable data and use such information to monitor the performance, use and stability of the Platform and to improve the Platform.
We require our customers to ensure that they have obtained all authority to provide personal information to us in accordance with applicable privacy laws and to not provide us with any sensitive personal information. Except as set out herein, we do not collect or use personal information from our customers for any purpose other than to provide the Platform on behalf of our customers.
We rely on our customers to comply with applicable privacy laws when collecting, using, or disclosing personal information through the Services, including by obtaining appropriate consent to collect, use, and disclose personal information, including the personal information of others, through the Platform.

We use service providers to provide services such as hosting the Platform and the Website, and providing advertising and marketing services. Our service providers are only provided with the information they need to perform their designated functions and are not authorized to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.

Legal and Compliance: We and our Canadian, U.S. and other foreign service providers may provide your personal information in response to a search warrant to other legally valid inquiry or order, or to another organization for the purposes of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law or detecting, suppressing or preventing fraud, or as otherwise may be required or permitted by applicable Canadian, U.S. or other law or legal process, which may include lawful access by U.S. or foreign courts, law enforcement or other government authorities. Your personal information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property.

INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WEBSITE
Visiting our Website: In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or submitting any personal information. However, we collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to our Website and other related information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our Website. We use this information to help us understand our Website activity and to monitor and improve our Website.
Cookies: Our Website uses a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a tiny element of data that our Website sends to a user’s browser, which may then be stored on the user’s hard drive so that we can recognize the user’s computer or device when they return. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to not accept certain cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from our Website, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the Website features.
Analytics: We may also use a third party such as Google Analytics to help us gather and analyze information about the areas visited on the Website (such as the pages most read, time spent, search terms and other engagement data) in order to evaluate and improve the user experience and the Website. For more information or to opt out using the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, see “How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services” and “Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.”
We work with third parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies that use their own tracking technologies (including cookies and pixel tags) on our Website in order to provide you with tailored advertisements across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our Website and third-party websites (such as web pages you visit and your interaction with our advertising and other communications) and use this information to make predictions about your preferences, develop personalized content and deliver ads that are more relevant to you on third-party websites. This information may also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns.
Opting Out of Interest-Based Advertising: For more information about interest-based advertising and to understand your options, including how you can opt out of receiving behavioural ads from third-party advertising companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada website at https://youradchoices.ca/.
Please note that even if you opt out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioural information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
To successfully opt out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt out again.
