AuditBoard, Inc. (“AuditBoard” or “we” or “us”) respects the privacy rights of its users and created this privacy notice (this “Privacy Notice") in order to explain how information may be collected, retained, used or disclosed by AuditBoard when you visit the AuditBoard website located at www.auditboard.com or any other web properties, add-ins, services, applications, or platforms owned by AuditBoard (collectively, the “Website”). Because we gather important information from our users, visitors, and customers (including any corporate entities affiliated therewith) (collectively “Users” or “you” or “your”), we have established this Privacy Notice as a means to communicate our information gathering and dissemination practices. By accessing the Website, you acknowledge and agree to this Privacy Notice. If you use the AuditBoard platform as part of business or entity that has an agreement with AuditBoard (collectively, an “Organization”), that Agreement will supersede this Privacy Notice in the event of any overlap or conflict with this Privacy Notice.
Please note: When you submit your personal information on or through the Website, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Notice. We may share information among our subsidiaries or other websites that we own or control, but such sharing of information is always governed under the terms of this Privacy Notice.
Please note: AuditBoard is not responsible for the privacy practices of third party websites (even if we offer links to third party websites at the Website) and these third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Notice. Before visiting a third party website and before providing any information to the party that operates or advertises on that third party website, Users should review the privacy notice and practices of that website to determine how information that they collect from their users will be handled. Please further note, depending on a User's particular interaction with our websites (e.g. Users who solely navigate one of our websites versus Users who use the services offered through the Website), different portions of this Privacy Notice may apply to Users at different times.

Disclosure of User Information to Third Parties
In addition to the use of information described above, AuditBoard reserves the right to disclose information provided by Users (including Personal Information) as follows:
Disclosure By Law. You acknowledge and agree that we may disclose information you provide if required to do so by law, at the request of a third party, or if we, in our sole discretion, believe that disclosure is reasonable to (1) comply with the law, requests or orders from law enforcement, or any legal process (whether or not such disclosure is required by applicable law); (2) protect or defend AuditBoard's, or a third party's rights or property; or (3) protect someone's health or safety, such as when harm or violence against any person (including you) is threatened.
Disclosure to Third Party Service Providers. We may share your information with third party service providers to perform functions on our behalf. For example, outsourced customer care agents or technology assistants may need access to your information to perform services for you. Your information will be treated as private and confidential by such service providers and not used for any other purpose than we authorize.
Data/Information Transfer As a Result of Sale of Business. In the event that AuditBoard is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, AuditBoard reserves the right to sell or transfer User information (including Personal Information) as part of any such transaction. To the maximum extent allowable by law, the Privacy Notice will apply to the User information as transferred to the successor entity. However, User information submitted after a transfer to a successor entity may be subject to a new privacy notice adopted by the successor entity.
Please note that data that is transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal information via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not. A third party may therefore be able to trace an existing bank account or relationship or one that is subsequently created. Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including to countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Password-protected areas of the Website can be accessed only with a valid username and password. Each password owner is responsible for keeping the password confidential and safe, as AuditBoard has no control or responsibility for this type of User information. If the password may have been stolen or might otherwise be misused, it is the responsibility of the password owner to notify AuditBoard immediately for further action.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. We do not accept any liability for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your Personal Information or data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
The Website and the services offered by AuditBoard are exclusively hosted in the United States. If you are User accessing the Website from the European Union, Australia, Asia, Canada or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that may differ from United States laws, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as such other regions. User information (including Personal Information or “personal data” as defined by foreign laws) collected through the Website may be stored and processed in the United States, and by using the Website, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your home country.
