Internet Protocol Addresses
An Internet protocol (“IP”) address is the unique number assigned to your server or Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). Alteryx may track such IP addresses for system administration, usage information, to report aggregate information, site tracking, or to prevent our servers from being abused.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
Our Website contains links to other websites, including those of our partners and sponsors, whose information practices may be different from ours. Sometimes these third-party websites may conduct contests or sweepstakes that are promoted on our Website, and you may be directed away from our Website in order to participate in such contests or sweepstakes. In such case, you should consult these third-party websites’ privacy notices.
How We Secure Your Information
We have taken steps to assure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form. As such, access to all personal information is strictly controlled. We have established appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in an effort to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
To verify the security of your PC’s web connection at our Service, check the lower left corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken or a closed lock, then SSL is active and the server is secure. You may also check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the Website address will change from “http” to “https.”
International data transfers
Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country.
Specifically, our Website servers are located in the United States of America, and our group companies and third-party service providers and partners operate around the world, including but not limited to the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Singapore, Czech Republic, Japan, and Canada. This means that when we collect your personal information we may process it in any of these countries.
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements).
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
Use of Our Online Forums
We may provide blogs, bulletin boards, forums or chat rooms (“Forum”) on the Website. Any personal information you submit in a Forum may be read, collected, or used by other users who visit the Forum. Alteryx is not responsible for any use or disclosure of the PII in your posts or during any other communication with other site users. You must evaluate, and bear the risk associated with, the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of a Forum. We do not pre-screen postings in such Forum and reserve the right to remove any content posted.
