7. DATA COLLECTION
How do we improve our software?
At A2Z IT Systems LTD., we strive to continuously improve the quality of our software. In addition to our development process, we also monitor the quality of our products by collecting information about errors and problems.
The information helps us to diagnose problems so we can further improve our software and service(s).
How do we collect information?
If a problem occurs in our software program, a report is automatically sent to our server. You are not prompted to review the information that is sent out because no personal information is collected
What types of information do we collect?
The reporting service collects information about problems that occur behind the scenes while you work with UbiqShare. It is important to diagnose errors that occur behind the scenes because these problems, if left unsolved, may cause additional problems such as performance or program failures.
Reports contain information that is most useful for diagnosing and solving the problem that has occurred, such as:
• In what part of the software the problem occurred
• Type of the problem
Your Internet Protocol (IP) address is also collected because you are connecting to our servers and to allow you to Theftguard your files.
Reports might unintentionally contain personal information, but this information is not used to identify you.
Who can use the information and how can it be used?
A2Z IT Systems LTD. uses information about errors and problems to improve the software and services. A2Z IT Systems LTD. employees may be provided access to information collected by the reporting service. However, they may use the information only to diagnose and repair issues or improve the A2Z IT Systems LTD. products.
Information storage, processing, and release
Information that we collect may be stored and processed in the United States or Belgium. A2Z IT Systems LTD. abides to the policy regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union. A2Z IT Systems LTD. may disclose this information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on A2Z IT Systems LTD.; (b) protect or defend the rights or property of A2Z IT Systems LTD., or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of A2Z IT Systems LTD. employees, users of UbiqShare software or services, or members of the public.
A2Z IT Systems LTD. occasionally hires other companies to provide limited services on its behalf, such as providing customer support, processing transactions. A2Z IT Systems LTD. will provide these companies only the information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose.
A2Z IT Systems LTD. is committed to helping protect the security of the information we collect. The Error Reporting Service uses multiple security technologies and procedures to help protect information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, reports are sent to A2Z IT Systems LTD. from your computer using encryption technology. The information is then stored on computer servers with controlled access.
8. INTERSTATE NATURE OF COMMUNICATIONS ON UBIQSHARE NETWORK
When you register with UbiqShare, you acknowledge that in using the UbiqShare Solution to send or store electronic communications (including but not limited to uploading photos and files) you will be causing communications to be sent through UbiqShare or UbiqShare’s third party computer networks, portions of which are located in Europe, and other locations, including, though not limited to, the United States, Asia and Australia. As a result, and also as a result of UbiqShare network architecture and business practices and the nature of electronic communications, even communications that seem to be intrastate in nature can result in the transmission of interstate communications regardless of where you are physically located at the time of transmission. Accordingly, by agreeing to this Terms of Service, you acknowledge that use of the UbiqShare Solution results in interstate and/or global data transmissions.
