Types of Information Collected
In order to better provide you with our numerous services, Control Plane collects two types of information about our users - Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using our Platform. Personally Identifiable Information - This refers to information that lets Us know the specifics of who you are. When you engage in certain activities with the Platform, such as registering for an account, ordering a product or service, or sending the Company feedback, Control Plane may ask you to provide certain information about yourself or your company by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for you to elect to engage in these activities, however, We may ask that you provide Control Plane personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address (including zip code), email address, and other personal identifying information. Depending upon the activity, some of the information We ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity. Non-Personally Identifiable Information - This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. Control Plane gathers certain information about you based upon how you interact with the Platform in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Uniform Resource Locator("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the internet.
Collection Methods and Use of Information
Release of Information
Control Plane does not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others. We provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, service providers, partners and other third parties. Control Plane and our service partners use your Personally Identifiable Information to operate our products and to deliver their services. For example, Control Plane must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank or servicer to confirm payment for products and services purchased from the Company; and provide order information to third parties that help Control Plane provide customer service. Control Plane will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personally Identifiable Information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners and is not subject to our control. Occasionally We may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information to the appropriate governmental authorities. Control Plane will disclose Personally Identifiable Information upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. Control Plane fully cooperates with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities.

You can be assured that your Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Control Plane is secure, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all Personally Identifiable Information associated with our user is of utmost concern to Us. Your Personally Identifiable Information is isolated from, and not accessible by, our other customers by design. Your Personally Identifiable Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Personally Identifiable Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. Control Plane recommends that you do not divulge your password to anyone.

They receive the information needed to verify and authorize your credit card or other payment information and to process and ship your order. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Control Plane strives to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that - (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between User and Control Plane cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
