Please do not post any information that you do not want to reveal publicly.

When you access the Site or Services, or open one of our HTML emails, we may automatically record certain information from your system by using cookies and other types of click-stream tracking technologies. This “automatically collected” information may include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), a unique user ID, device type, device identifiers, browser types and language, referring and exit pages, platform type, version of software installed, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Sites and Service, the number of clicks, the amount of time spent on pages, the dates and times that you visit the Sites and Service, and other similar information. Depending on the law of your country of residence, your IP address may legally be considered personally identifiable information.
We typically use these cookies and similar technologies for essential and functional purposes (e.g. to maintain an active session), to improve the performance and usability of our Sites, and to analyze how users interact with the Services (e.g. to understand how long users stay on a page, how often they return, and how they arrived at our Site). On certain portions of our Sites we may collect data through these technologies for advertising, remarketing, or other similar purposes. Click-stream and related data is typically used for purposes of system administration, to improve our Services, for marketing and advertising-related purposes, and other similar uses.
Certain portions of our Services may collect information via cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, and similar digital tracking technologies. These technologies can be used to operate, secure and provide our Services by collecting and analyzing information related to your use of the Services.
Listen360 utilizes only strictly necessary and functional cookies as part of its application Services, though other cookies including analytics and marketing related cookies are utilized on our public-facing websites and feedback forms. User sessions originating from an EU or UK IP address are provided the opportunity to opt-out of these analytics and marketing cookies.
Listen360 provides the ability to integrate the Services with select third party systems for importing and synchronization of customer information or publishing of feedback content (“Integrated Service(s)”). When a Client elects to establish a Listen360 connection with an Integrated Service, all data in your account may be shared with the Integrated Service (and all data in the Integrated Service account may be shared with Listen360) including personally identifiable information about your consumer and non-consumer customers and prospects. Listen360 does not control the policies or procedures of these Integrated Services, even though the integrations are provided through our Services, and Listen360 is not responsible for and has no control over how these third party Integrated Services function.
Listen360 may provide the Personal Information we have collected from and/or about Clients to Integrated Services for the purpose of enabling them to market their products or services to you, if you have not opted out of these disclosures.
When you provide feedback about a Client via the Services, we share all of the information you provide, including Personal Information, with that Client.
When you submit any feedback form or survey, you are providing explicit consent to publically publish in any forum or format any and all of the information provided via the form (including both checkbox/radio button selections and free text comments) in conjunction with your first and last initials.
In all cases where we share Personal Information with third parties, we will use a “minimum necessary” standard to disclose only that information required to perform the service for which the information is disclosed.
We will retain Personal Information for Clients and Client Users as long as you remain an active user of our Services and for a reasonable time thereafter, to serve the purpose(s) for which your Personal Information was processed, or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, or to enforce our agreements to the extent permitted by law. While retention requirements can vary by country, we generally apply the retention periods noted below.
Upon termination of a contract with a Covered Entity, we will remove any ePHI stored in our systems on behalf of that Covered Entity where required by applicable law or the Business Associate Agreement with the Covered Entity; any PHI that we continue to maintain, will be stored and protected per the terms of our Business Associate Agreement with the Covered Entity.
Listen360 has implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our thirty party vendor’s servers which utilize the most powerful security tools that exist in the marketplace.
The Listen360 Sites, including hosted web feedback survey forms, utilize secure SSL for all form data submissions in conjunction with a 256-bit GoDaddy certificate, but accommodate the majority of browsers at 128-bit encryption.
Listen360 does not directly store, process, or transmit bank account and credit card information. All payment processing, and collection of payment account data, is accomplished via integration with third-party service providers. These providers are contractually required to maintain compliance with the PCI DSS – Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, and with all NACHA rules for ACH transaction processing. This includes secure transmission of credit card/bank account information, and encrypted storage of all payment account information.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted via our Sites or Services. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Sites or the Services.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Sites or the Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. Additionally, do not leave your device unlocked so that other individuals may access your device or account. Listen360 is not in control of your wireless connection or the devices you use to log into the Services, so you should make sure you trust the devices and connections you use to access the Services.
If you believe that you have experienced unauthorized access or use of your account, please contact us immediately at [email protected]
You may opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us by following the opt-out instructions we include in such communications. Any communications from us that are not Service-related or transactional in nature will offer you an “unsubscribe” option so that you can opt out of receiving such messages.
To the extent required by law, you may choose to opt out of sharing with any other parties with whom we may share your personal information; however, you may be unable to use the Services or certain features if you wish to limit such sharing.

Listen360 acknowledges the right of individuals to access their Personal Information. Note that Listen360 will require you to verify your identity prior to releasing any Personal Information.
Generally, you may access, correct, and/or delete your Personal Information as follows:
For individuals residing in Designated Countries, please refer to the “Designated Countries Privacy Rights” section below.
Note that use of the system delete function by a Client to remove any data related to Respondents or potential Respondents (such deleting a record or deleting feedback comments), or to remove any personal data about your company or its authorized Client Users, only restricts viewing that data from any system interface and prevents utilizing that data for any system function. It does not permanently delete the data from Listen360 systems. To have any personal data permanently deleted from Listen360 systems, you must make an official request in writing, to the address provided below or by emailing [email protected] that includes the specific information that you would like permanently deleted from Listen360 systems. Note that Listen360 will require you to verify your identity prior to executing any request to permanently delete data.

We will also take steps to delete the information as soon as possible, unless an exception applies.
