Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy describes Retrium's practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of the information we collect from and about you when you use Retrium's applications (the "Service"). We take our obligations regarding your privacy seriously and have made every effort to draft this Privacy Policy in a manner that is clear and easy for you to understand. By accessing or using the Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

Information You Provide To Us

If you choose to create a Retrium account, we may collect Personal Information including, but not limited to, your name and email address. We may also automatically use your email address to find a publicly available profile photo using services like Gravatar. The term Personal Information means information that may be used to readily identify or contact you as an individual person, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number. Personal Information does not include information that has been anonymized such that it does not allow for the ready identification a specific individual.

If you are a user of our paid premium service, we will utilize a third party credit card payment processing company to collect payment information, including your credit card number, billing address and phone number. We will share this payment information with the third party processing company as detailed below in "Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information." We do not store your payment information.

Your Content

Your use of the Service will involve you uploading or inputting various content into the Service. Such content may include Personal Information or other sensitive information that you choose to include.

We may, from time to time, collect other data that you voluntarily submit to our website through your participation in surveys, contests, promotions, sweepstakes, activities, events, customer support requests, and communications with us through our site or through third party social media.

Retrium may view your Content only as necessary (i) to maintain, provide and improve the Service; (ii) to resolve a support request from you; (iii) if we have a good faith belief, or have received a complaint alleging, that such Content is in violation of our Terms of Service or Subscription Agreement; (iv) as reasonably necessary to allow Retrium to comply with or avoid the violation of applicable law or regulation; or (v) to comply with a valid legal subpoena or request.

Information Collected Via Technology

We automatically collect certain information via technology:

  • Log Files. When you use the Service, our servers automatically record certain non-personally-identifying information on server logs, such as your web request, the browser type, language preference, referring site, Internet protocol ("IP") address, exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the service, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, mobile carrier, date and time stamp information and other such information. Retrium's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Retrium's visitors use its website and to help us improve the Service.
  • Location Information. We may collect and process information about the location of the device from which you are accessing the Service. Location data may convey information about how you browse the Service and may be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information. You can disable location based services in settings associated with the Service; however please be aware that some features of the Service may not function properly if location services are turned off.
  • Cookies. Retrium uses cookies, pixel tags and web beacons to help us identify and track visitors, their usage of the Retrium website, and their website access preferences. Retrium visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Retrium's website, with the drawback that certain features of Retrium's website may not function properly without the aid of cookies. We do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated Do Not Track signals that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information about online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services as there is no consistent industry standard for compliance.
  • Information from third party services. Retrium also obtains information from third parties and combines that with information we collect. As of the date this policy went into effect, Retrium uses Full Contact as one such third party source of information. Retrium may have access to certain information from a third party social media or authentication service if you log into Retrium through the service or otherwise provide us with access to information from that service. Retrium will never access more information from the third party service than is required in order to perform the relevant function. For example, in order to authenticate a user using Google Apps, Retrium will only access the user’s email address and basic profile information. By authorizing us to connect with a third party service, you authorize us to access the information that the third party service makes available to us, and to use and disclose it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You should check your privacy settings on these third party services to understand and change the information sent to us through these services.

Statistics and Analytics

We collect analytics information when you use our website to help us improve our product. The analytics information we collect includes elements of content related to the function you are performing. For example, we record information related to the retrospectives you run, including the system-generated identifier of the retrospective and the name of the technique used.

As of the date this policy went into effect, we use Google Analytics as an analytics provider. To learn more about the privacy policy of Google Analytics, refer to Google's Policies and Principles. Use the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on to prevent analytics information from being sent to Google Analytics.

Analytics information also consists of data we collect as a result of running queries against content across our user base for the purposes of generating Anonymous Usage Data. "Anonymous Usage Data" is aggregated data about a group or category of services, features or users that does not contain Personal Information. For example, we may run queries to determine the most common retrospective techniques that users use. We primarily use this Anonymous Usage Data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may provide, maintain, protect and enhance our products and services, though we reserve the right to use Anonymous Usage Data for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Usage Data to third parties in our sole discretion.

Though we may happen upon sensitive or Personal Information as we compile Anonymous Usage Data, this is a byproduct of our efforts to understand broader patterns and trends. It is not a concerted effort by us to examine the content of any particular customer or user.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Retrium will not rent or sell your Personal Information to anyone. Retrium will not share your Personal Information with third parties without your consent other than:

How We Protect Your Information

The security of Your Data and Personal Information is important to us. Retrium takes reasonable steps to help protect your Personal Information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Retrium uses commercially reasonable and industry-standard physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your information. For example, we continuously and regularly back up your data to help prevent data loss and aid in data recovery. We also guard against common web attack vectors, host data in secure SAS 70 audited data centers, and implement firewalls and access restrictions on our servers to secure our network and better protect your information.

You may opt out of receiving these emails by following the instructions in the emails. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional emails, such as emails about your Retrium account or our ongoing business relationship. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. All feedback will be anonymized so that it cannot be associated to the user and Customer.
