The Data We Process

We collect two types of data from you when you use our Website and Services – non-personal (or anonymized) data and personal data. These are described below.

Non-Personal Data

We gather broad, anonymized data surrounding activity within our Website and our Services, including:

  • Number of unique visitors.
  • Frequency of visits.
  • Date and time of visits.
  • Public Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors.
  • Location information of visitors (geolocation).
  • Basic web browser statistics (browser type, OS, screen resolution, screen colors).
  • Basic device information (device type & brand, OS, service provider).
  • Error log data reported by users’ web browsers.
  • Incoming (referred) and outgoing URL links as users visit from other sites.
  • Web page landing and view statistics.

We analyze the data above in summary form rather than on an individual basis. We may also combine (aggregate) this data with other information in a way that does not identify you. We process the non-personal data above so we can identify usage and functionality trends within our Website and Services.

Personal Data

Specific areas and functions of the Website and Services enable you to provide personal data to us. In some cases, personal data may be required in order to achieve full functionality within one or more Services. Personal data may be collected from manual submissions on our Website (e.g. web forms) as well as data fields that are populated as you use our Services.

We also leverage third-party tools and services to collect personal data for sales and marketing purposes. These tools and services are listed on our subprocessors page along with a website reference and purpose for each.

Cookies and Other Web Processing

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file created by a web server that can be stored on your device (if you allow it) for use either during a particular browsing session (a session cookie) or a future browsing session (a persistent cookie). Session cookies are temporarily stored on your device and only last until they expire at the end of your browsing session. Persistent cookies remain stored on your device until they expire or are deleted by you. Persistent cookies are typically used to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on a website.

First-party cookies are set by the website you’re visiting, and they can only be read by that site. Third-party cookies are set by a party other than that website.

Other Web Processing

In addition to cookies, we utilize other web processing technologies to automatically gather information as you browse our Website and utilize our Services. These include the following:

Web beacons. These are tiny graphics (sometimes called clear GIFs or web pixels) with unique identifiers that are used to understand browsing activity. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your device, web beacons are rendered invisibly on the web pages you visit.

Social Widgets. These are buttons or icons provided by third-party social media platforms that allow you to interact with social media services when you view a webpage or mobile app screen. These social widgets may collect browsing data, which may be received by the third party that provided the widget and are controlled by third parties.

UTM Codes. These are strings that can appear in a URL (the Uniform Resource Locator, which is typically the address entered to go to a webpage) when you move from one web page or website to another. The string can represent information about browsing, such as which advertisement, page, or publisher sent you to the receiving website.

Web Navigation Replay. Our platform monitoring solutions provide the ability for our engineers to replay a user’s navigation history while using our web-based Services, for the purposes of troubleshooting customer support requests and bug reports. Note that this only applies to logged-in users on our Services platforms, not our Website.

Third-Party Technologies

Third parties connected to our Website and Services may use automated data collection technologies to collect information about you when you browse the Internet. The information they collect about your online browsing activities over time and across different websites and other online services may be associated with your personal information and used to provide you with targeted content.

We do not control these third parties’ technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about targeted content, you should contact the responsible party directly or consult their privacy policies.

How We Protect Data

Security Program

Built maintains a security program designed to protect the personal data we process from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed in an unauthorized manner. We periodically review our security procedures to measure best practices, and consider appropriate new technologies and methods.

Data submitted via the internet, including through a web page or email, is subject to interception or incorrect routing, and the internet is not a fully secure communications channel. Please consider this prior to submitting any personal data to us via the Website or Services. No method of transmission over the internet is 100 percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal data, Built cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Subprocessors

Built partners with third-party vendors (our subprocessors) who assist us in providing our Website and Services. We have a vendor management program in place designed to review subprocessor privacy and security programs and ensure they are meeting best practices and contractual obligations with us.

Our subprocessor page can be found here: Subprocessors Detail

When we add or change any of the subprocessors we partner with, we update this page to reflect changes.

User Responsibility

You also play a role in the safety and security of your personal data. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your login credentials, as well as ensuring you only disclose your personal data through secure means.

Breach Disclosure

If Built experiences a data breach which compromises your personal data, we will notify you and any appropriate regulation bodies when we are required to do so by applicable law.

How We Retain Data

We retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected (e.g. to provide our Services to you) and to comply with applicable laws.

Data Belonging to Children

The Services provided by Built are not directed to or intended for use by individuals under 13 years of age. Built does not knowingly collect any information from children under 13. If you become aware that your child is accessing the Website or Services, and is providing any personal data to Built, please contact us (see the Contacting Us section for communication details). We will take steps to remove any personal data provided by any child under 13 from our systems and terminate any accounts associated with the personal data.

Third-Party Websites

Our Website and Services may contain links to websites operated by non-affiliated or independent third parties. Please be aware that these websites may collect and process your personal data when you visit and utilize them. These sites have not necessarily been reviewed by us and are not within our control. Built is not responsible for the privacy and data processing practices provided by or advertised on these third-party websites.

Any information provided by you or automatically collected from you by a third party will be governed by that party’s privacy policy and terms of use. If you are unsure whether a website is controlled, affiliated, or managed by us, you should review the privacy policy and practices applicable to each linked website.

International Users

This Website and Services are intended solely for Built customers residing in the United States and Canada. If you reside in another country and choose to use our Website and Services, be aware that we may transfer your personal data to our subsidiaries and affiliated entities, or to other third parties, across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. These countries and jurisdictions may not offer the same data protection laws as yours.
