WE MAY CHANGE THIS POLICY FROM TIME TO TIME, AND IF WE DO WE WILL POST ANY CHANGES ON THIS PAGE. IF YOU CONTINUE TO USE THE SERVICES AFTER THOSE CHANGES ARE IN EFFECT, YOU AGREE TO THE REVISED POLICY.
Content and information submitted or uploaded by users to the Services is referred to in this policy as “Customer Data.” As further explained below, Customer Data is controlled by the organization or other third party that created an account (the “Customer”). Where Skill Focus collects or processes Customer Data, it does so on behalf of the Customer. Here are some examples of Customer Data (but keep in mind they are only examples and there may be others): uploaded datasets, and other types of datasources. A user may also choose to enter information into their profile, such as first and last name, or a photo.
If you use an account, you are a “user,” as further described in the User Terms of Service. If you are using the Services by invitation of a Customer, whether that Customer is your employer, another organization, or an individual, that Customer determines its own policies regarding storage, access, modification, deletion, sharing, and retention of Customer Data which may apply to your use of the Services. Please check with the Customer about the policies and settings it has in place.2. Other information
