Wicket collects, uses and is responsible for certain personal data about you. Wicket operates a cloud-based software platform used by our clients to provide access to a website for authorized individuals, including their employees and customers. The use of information collected through this platform is strictly limited to the purpose of meeting our contractual obligations to our clients and providing the services requested by our clients, which are defined within our service agreements. The information we collect is done so at the direction of our clients and we have no direct relationship with their customers, the individuals whose personal data we process.
If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as controller of that personal data for the purposes of those laws.
(a) Personal data that is collected when you communicate with Wicket: Wicket may collect, use, and is responsible for certain personal data that you provide when you voluntarily sign up for emails, schedule a demonstration, comment on social media or blog posts, register and post in our forums, fill out any type of form or otherwise contact Wicket via email, telephone or online. The information collected may include your name, organization name, phone number, email address and organization size. Clients who engage Wicket may also provide additional personal or business information. You are not required to provide personally identifiable information to merely access or visit this website.
To improve client service, subject to applicable laws, we may also record and review your conversations with us, and analyze any feedback provided to us through voluntary surveys concerning our client service.
Purposes and Legal Grounds:
- We use this information to provide you with client and service support and to monitor the quality and types of client and service support we provide to our clients. The legal ground for processing this information for these purposes is Wicket’s legitimate interest in providing quality client and service support.
(b) If you choose to sign up for our newsletter or any other communication from us, we will use your contact information for purposes of sending you the information you have requested. Wicket may also use your email address and other contact information for the purpose of sending you electronic marketing communications. You will have the opportunity to opt out of receiving any such communications at the time we collect your contact information as well as through the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our marketing emails.
- Purposes and Legal Grounds:
- The legal ground for processing your email address and other contact information for this purpose is our legitimate interest in sending electronic marketing communications to clients concerning our services. If you do not initially opt out of receiving electronic marketing communication but subsequently decide that you no longer wish to receive electronic marketing communications, you will have the opportunity to opt out from receiving electronic marketing communications from Wicket at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link provided at the bottom of our marketing emails.
- The legal ground for processing your personal data for this purpose is Wicket’s legitimate interest in providing its clients with information they have requested and with electronic marketing communications that are likely to be of interest to them.
(c) Wicket also processes contact information of our clients’ members and contacts, on our clients’ behalf, to assist our clients and their members and contacts with their use and operation of their Wicket sites. We do not contact our clients’ members or contacts except as related to the operation of our clients’ Wicket sites (e.g., notifications and reminders, membership renewals, security, and other notifications).
- Purposes and Legal Grounds:
- The legal ground for processing the contact information of our clients’ members and contacts on behalf of our clients and for such communications purposes is based on our legitimate interest in providing quality support for our sites and services and assisting our clients and their members and contacts with their use and operation of their Wicket sites.
Wicket respects your privacy and will never sell, trade or transfer your personal data to third parties (beyond what is necessary for fulfilling a customer service, or for the basic functionality of an online service) without your consent.
We do, however, share your name and email address with our third-party suppliers. These third-party suppliers are contractually bound to use personal data we share with them only to perform the services we have engaged them to provide. Our current third-party suppliers include:
- G Suite
This data sharing allows us to provide services to our clients and manage Wicket. These third-party recipients are based outside the EEA — for further information including on how we safeguard your personal data when this occurs, see “Transfer of Your Information Out of the EEA”.
If you give Wicket your permission, it may also use personal identification information for internal or external marketing and promotional purposes.
On occasion, Wicket may collect personal identification information from you in connection with optional contests, special offers or promotions. Wicket will share such information with necessary third parties for the purpose of carrying out the contest, special offer or promotion. We will ask for your consent to such disclosure and use of such information, prior to your participation in the contest, special offer or promotion.
(b) Governmental entities and third parties: We may disclose personal data about you to governmental entities, such as regulatory agencies, law enforcement and judicial authorities, as well as other third parties under any of the following conditions: (a) if we have your valid consent to do so; (b) to comply with a valid subpoena, legal order, court order, legal process or other legal obligation; (c) to enforce any of our terms and conditions or policies; or (d) as necessary to pursue available legal remedies or defend legal claims.
We will not share your personal data with any other third party.
