Information Collection and How It Is Used
Upsign collects personal information when you register with Upsign to use Upsign services or to post content on Upsign. When you register we ask for your email address and personal information, such as your name. Upsign automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie, and the page you request. Upsign uses information for the following general purposes: products and services provision, identification and authentication, services improvement, contact, research, and anonymous reporting.
IP Addresses are automatically reported by your browser each time you view a web page. Your IP address is stored in our user registration databases when you register with Upsign. IP addresses may be used for various purposes, including but not limited to: to diagnose or service technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP; to estimate the total number of users visiting Upsign from specific geographical regions.
To improve user experience on our website and app, we use “cookies.” A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use Upsign’s products or services that require you to “sign in,” and you may not be able to take full advantage of the Upsign service.
Upsign uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including but not limited to: access your information when you “sign in”; keep track of preferences you specify while you are using Upsign’s services; estimate and report our total audience size and traffic; conduct research to improve Upsign’s content and services. Upsign also uses first-party cookies from third-party vendors, like Google (Google Analytics) and third-party cookies (Doubleclick) together to inform, optimize and serve ads based on past visits to our website. Doubleclick is a third-party advertising provider that displays advertisements based on your visits to our website and other sites you have visited, allowing targeted advertisements to be delivered to you for products and services in which you might be interested. Also, our website has implemented and uses display advertising, and we utilize Google Analytics to implement a specific feature called remarketing. Remarketing is a feature of Google’s Adwords that allows us to optimize the delivery of ad content specifically targeted to a visitor’s interests based upon previous visits to our site. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising, you may do so by using the Google Ad Settings. There is also a Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on that you can download at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
Upsign may use personally identifiable information for automated decision-making to improve our user experience. For example, we may recommend pre-built documents (templates) for use based on the information you have provided to us about what industry you do business in or what document you are looking to transact. You of course have the right to object to the use of your personal data in this way. Please contact us at email@example.com to opt-out of the automated decision-making function based on personal data and preferences.
