Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us.

We at Layer, LLC (“we,” “us,” or “Layer”) respect your privacy, and we don’t ask for this information unless we truly need it. We do not collect Personal Information from children under the age of 16 without parental consent.

Collection of Personal Information

Personal Information is information that can be used to identify you as an individual, either alone or taken with other information we collect. Over the course of providing you the services, we may ask for:

• Contact Information such as your name, and email address;
• Employment information such as your company name, your title, and other company details including address and phone number;
• Financial information such as your billing information; and
• Location information including your address, IP address, and location data

We collect this information in order to provide our services to you, generally directly from you. We may request the information specifically, or we may collect it through your engagement with certain aspects of our services such as message boards or forums. We do not collect the content of such messages, but we may collect information about the message senders and recipients in order to improve our services. We do not sell or otherwise dispose of your data, though we may transfer it to certain third parties as outlined below.

The lawful basis for our collection of your information is listed below. Where we collect information with your consent (evidenced by your direct provision of the information to us), you can revoke that consent at any time.

Contact Information: Necessary in order to perform our contract with you.
Employment Information: It is in our legitimate business interest to collect information about the types of company using our services. We only collect this information with your consent.
Financial information: Necessary in order to perform our contract with you (for billing activities).
Location information: This is automatically collected and used for analytical purposes. Your address is collected in order to perform our contract with you (for billing purposes), and your IP address and location data is anonymized/not used to personally identify you.

If you interact with a third party service when using our services, such as if you use Facebook or Google to log-in, or if you share content from our services through a third party service through an integration, we may receive additional Personal Information about you. We only request information as set out above, and we use this information for our legitimate business interest of personalizing the services to improve your experience. We do not purchase or otherwise acquire any Personal Information about you without your knowledge.

Collection of Nonpersonal Information

Nonpersonal information is information that cannot be used to identify you as an individual, either because it is insufficient to identify you without being combined with other collected data, or because it has been aggregated and anonymized so that it cannot be used to identify you. We collect certain nonpersonal information automatically through the use of cookies and other web beacons to gather information that we can use to improve the services. This may include your browser type, your click information, and other information that we can use for analytics. You can disable cookies and other web services in order to block this automatic collection, but please be advised that such disabling may make the services not work or not work as intended.

Analytics

Our analytics tools (listed below) generally use cookies to perform their services. You are able to opt-out of cookies at any time, but please be aware that disabling some cookies may cause the Layer products to stop working as intended. To opt-out, you can use the native tools in your browser, or you can use the Network Advertising Initiative Opt-Out Tool.

Performance cookies
Performance cookies are used in the tracking of how you use a website during your visit, without collecting personal information about you.
