CleverBooster’s Service and Customer Data

Registered users of the Service (“Customers”) are businesses that use it to collect and manage information about their own users (“Customer Data”), including information about how they interact with the Customer’s websites, applications, services and designated third-party partners (“Customer Services”). Customers also use the Service to more efficiently route Customer Data to the other services that they use or to third parties that they work with, and to control how Customer Data is exchanged between these services and third parties.

Customer Data may include, without limitation, information about the identity of Customer users (such as name, postal address, e-mail address, IP address and phone number), as well as information about the pages users visit, the features they use, and the actions they take while using Customer Services. This Privacy Policy does not apply to Customer Data or to Customer Services, and we are not responsible for our Customers’ handling of Customer Data. Our Customers have their own policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information. To learn about how a particular Customer handles your personal information, we encourage you to read the Customer’s privacy policy. Our use of Customer Data provided by our Customers in connection with our Service is subject to the written agreement between CleverBooster and Customer.

Information from third party sources.

We may combine personal information we receive from you with personal information we obtain from other sources, such as our Customers; data providers; affiliates within our corporate group of companies; business partners, such as joint marketing partners and event co-sponsors; and publicly accessible sources, such as social media platforms.

Data collected automatically.

We, our service providers, and our business partners may automatically log the following information about you, your computer or mobile device, and your activity over time on the Site and other online services:
