Information Collection and Use
Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a Point.io account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and e-mail address. None of this information, is listed publicly on our Services.
We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may unsubscribe from these messages by following the instructions contained within the messages or the instructions on our web site. If you e-mail us, we may keep your message, e-mail address and contact information to respond to your request.
Document information and statistics: Our Services are primarily designed to help you share documents and files with other people. When files are uploaded or downloaded, they pass through our system, and may be temporarily stored on our servers as part of the upload, download and delivery confirmation services. Statistics are recorded for us to see how the system is being used. In addition, certain documents may be scanned for key words for the purposes of targeting marketing messages. This information is not stored, and not used for any other purposes.

Log Data: Our servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, and the type and quantity of files processed. Other actions, such as interactions with advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.
Cookies: Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer’s hard disk.

Third Party Services: Point.io uses a variety of services hosted by third parties to help provide our Services, such as hosting our support system and blogs, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These services may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP request.
Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: We may share or disclose your aggregated statistical (non-personal) information, such as the number of people added to shares, number of uploads, downloads and edits, and the type of files shared.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information with your consent, such as when you use a third party web client to access your Point.io account.
Law and Harm: We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Point.io’s rights or property.
