Please note, if you use Password Boss Premium, Trial or Free, you are both the Account Holder and End User of a Password Boss Services account. If you use Password Boss Business or Password Boss Business Free, the Account Holder is the Customer who has contracted with Password Boss as defined in our Password Boss Business Agreement and the End Users are the individuals whose user accounts are linked to that Password Boss Business account.
What information does Password Boss collect
We collect and use the following information to provide, improve, and protect our Services:
Account information. We collect, and associate with your account, the information you provide to us when you do things such as sign up for your account, upgrade to a paid plan, and set up two-factor authentication (like your name, email address, phone number, payment info, and physical address).
Your Data. Our Services are designed to make it simple for you to store your passwords, notes, personal information, credit cards, and so on (“Your Data”), share Your Data with others, and work across multiple devices. To make that possible, we store, process, and transmit Your Data as well as information related to it. This related information includes your email address and profile picture that makes it easier to share Your Data with others, people you have shared items with, the time it was uploaded, URLs for websites you have saved, and usage activity. Our Services provide you with different options for sharing Your Data.
Usage information. We collect information related to how you use the Services, for example, the act of creating a password or a note, sharing a password or note, or using the Services to login to websites. We use this information to improve our Services, develop new services and features, and protect Password Boss users.
Location information. We collect the IP address you use to connect to the Services.
Device information. We collect information about the number and type of devices you use to connect to the Services. This includes things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, the web page you visited before coming to our sites, and identifiers associated with your devices.
Marketing. We give users the option to use some of our Services free of charge. These free Services are made possible by the fact that some users upgrade to one of our paid Services. If you register for our free Services, we will, from time to time, send you information about upgrades when permissible. Users who receive these marketing materials can opt out at any time. If you do not want to receive marketing materials from us, simply click the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any email, or update your preferences in the Notifications section of your personal account.
We sometimes contact people who do not have a Password Boss account. For recipients in the EU, we or a third party will obtain consent before contacting you. If you receive an email and no longer wish to be contacted by Password Boss, you can unsubscribe and remove yourself from our contact list via the message itself.
How does Password Boss share or disclose my information
Password Boss will not sell your information to third parties. Here are instances when we may disclose your information — and then only the minimum information necessary:
Others working for Password Boss. We share your information with Service Providers who process data on our behalf, such as credit card processors and customer management systems. For example, these Service Providers help us:
- Operate, develop, and improve the features and functionality of the Services
- Complete your payment transactions
- Fulfill your sales and support requests
- Communicate with you as described elsewhere in this policy
We do not share your information with any third parties for their own advertising purposes.
Other users. Our Services display information such as your name, profile picture and email address to other users in places like your user profile and sharing notifications. When you register your Password Boss account with an email address on a domain owned by your employer or organisation, we may help collaborators find you and your team by making some of your basic information – such as your name, team name, profile picture and email address – visible to other users on the same subscription. This helps helps other users share passwords and notes with you. Certain features let you make additional information available to others.
Password Boss team admins. If you are a user of a Password Boss team (e.g. Password Boss Business plans or Password Boss Family), your administrator may have the ability to access and control your Password Boss team account. Please refer to your organisation’s internal policies if you have questions about this. If you are not a Password Boss team user but interact with a Password Boss team user (by, for example, joining a shared folder or accessing items shared by that user), members of that organisation may be able to view the name, email address, profile picture and IP address that was associated with your account at the time of that interaction.
Business changes. In the event of a merger, sale, or reorganization of all or part of our business, information covered by this policy may be transferred in connection with that deal.
Legal requests. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of Password Boss or our users; or (d) protect Password Boss’s property rights. Password Boss does not have any access to the passwords or notes you have saved in your account. The only access to this data is with your master password, which Password Boss does not store.
