I. WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
II. OUR COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect personal information in a variety of ways. For example, you may provide us your personal information when you register for an account, send us messages or use another feature of our Services.
As described in more detail below, we also collect some personal information automatically, and obtain some personal information from third parties. In some cases, we may combine personal information from multiple sources in order to better identify you.
Personal Information Collected from You
We may collect the following categories of personal information from you directly:
- Contact Information, including first and last name, phone number, email address, and job title.
- Content You Upload or Submit, such as contracts, e-signatures, images and videos that you upload or submit. Please do not upload or transmit information that you do not feel comfortable sharing with us or with other users.
- Inquiry and Communications Information, including information you send us when you submit an online form, email us or send us chat messages.
- Preference Information, including information regarding your interests and communication preferences.
- Job Applicant Information. If you apply for a job for us, we may collect your name and contact information, demographic information, and information about your qualifications, professional history, and educational background, as well as other information you choose to share with us in your application, interview, or supporting documentation.
- Feedback. We may also collect feedback you provide relating to our Services.
Personal Information Automatically Collected
Our Services are designed to automatically capture, store, track, and make searchable customer agreements, media, audit logs, and metadata. For example, we automatically collect certain personal information when you visit or interact with our online Services, such as:
- Log and Usage Data, including diagnostic, usage, and performance information our servers automatically collect when you access or use our Services and which we record in log files. Depending on how you interact with us, this log data may include your IP address, device information, browser type, and settings and information about your activity in the Services (such as the date/time stamps associated with your usage, pages and files viewed, searches, and other actions you take such as which features you use), device event information (such as system activity, error reports (sometimes called "crash dumps"), and hardware settings).
- Device Data, including information about your computer, phone, tablet, or other device you use to access the Services. Depending on the device used, this device data may include information such as your IP address (or proxy server), device and application identification numbers, location, browser type, hardware model, Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, and operating system.
- Location data, such as your latitude and longitude. How much location data we collect depends on the type and settings of the device you use to access the Services. For example, we may use GPS and other technologies to collect geolocation data that tells us your current location (based on your IP address). In addition, we may use the Google Maps API to gather information about your location. Google uses various technologies to determine your location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide Google with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points, and cell towers. More information about Google’s privacy practices is available here.
You can opt out of allowing us to collect location data either by refusing access to the data and by disabling your location setting on your device. However, if you choose to opt out, you may not be able to use certain aspects of the Services.
We and our third-party providers may use (i) cookies or small data files that are stored on your computer and (ii) other, related technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies and logging technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to automatically collect this personal information. For more information about these practices and your choices regarding cookies, please see the Control Over Your Information section below.
Personal Information from Third Parties
We also obtain personal information from third parties as follows:
- Single Sign On Authentication: We use Single Sign-On (SSO) to allow users to login through their Google and Microsoft accounts. These providers will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us, such as your name, profile photo, and email address. The data we receive depends on the third party’s policies and your privacy settings on the applicable third-party service.
For example, if you choose to connect a Google account to our Services, we will receive your name, email address, language preference, and profile picture. We use this information to create and service your account. We may also use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Services.

For example, our marketing service providers may send us your contact information. In addition, if you choose to connect your account to a third-party service (via API or Webhook), such as Slack, we may collect information about you and your business, including your profile information, information about other users, and any other information collected by the platform.
- Other Sources: We may also collect Personal Information about individuals that we do not otherwise have from, for example, publicly available sources, third-party data providers or through transactions such as mergers and acquisitions. We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Services, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages about products and services that may be of interest to you.
The data we receive from third parties depends on the applicable third party’s policies and the privacy preferences you have expressed to that third party.

IV. THIRD-PARTY DATA COLLECTION AND ONLINE ADVERTISING
We may participate in interest-based advertising and use third party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your browsing history. We permit third party online advertising networks, social media companies and other third-party services, to collect information about your use of our online services over time so that they may play or display ads on our Services, on other websites or services you may use, and on other devices you may use. For example:
- Social Media Platforms. We may display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as LinkedIn and other social media forums. These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. We may share a unique identifier, such as a user ID or hashed email address, with these platform providers or they may collect information from our website visitors through a first-party pixel, in order to direct targeted advertising to you or to a custom audience on the social media platform. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them. If you do not want to receive targeted ads on your social networks, you may be able to adjust your advertising preferences through your settings on those networks.
- Third Party Partners. We work with a variety of third-party partners to provide analytics and advertising services. For example, we use Mixpanel and Google Analytics to recognize you and link the devices you use when you visit our Services, log in to your account on our Services, or otherwise engage with us. We share a unique identifier, like a user ID or hashed email address, with these third parties to facilitate the service. Google Analytics and Mixpanel allow us to better understand how our users interact with our Services and to tailor our advertisements and content to you. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, as well as how you can control information sent to Google, review Google's website, “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can learn about Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs, including the Google Analytics Browser Ad-On here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.
- Typically, though not always, the information used for interest-based advertising is collected through tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, and similar technology, which recognize the device you are using and collect information, including click stream information, browser type, time and date you visited one of our websites, AdID, precise geolocation and other information. We may share a common account identifier (such as a hashed email address or user ID) with our third-party advertising partners to help identify you across devices. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics and market research. We may also use services provided by third parties (such as social media platforms) to serve targeted ads to you and others on such platforms. We may do this by providing a hashed version of your email address or other information to the platform provider.
