How We use the information we collect depends in part on which Service a Customer uses, how the Customer uses the Service, and any preferences a Customer may have communicated to us. Below are the specific purposes for which We use the information We collect.
6.1 Provision of the Service: To provide the Service and personalize Customers’ experience, We use information about our Customers and their users to provide the Service to them, including to authenticate users when users log in, provide support to Customers, and operate and maintain the Service. For example, We use the name and identifying information that Customers provide to the Service in order to help keep the Service secure. Our Service also includes features that personalize Customers’ users’ experience and enhance users’ productivity.
6.2 Improvement of the Service: We are always looking for ways to make Our Service smarter, faster, secure, integrated, and useful to Customers. We use collective learnings about how people use Our Service and feedback provided directly to TIQ Software to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Service. For example, We examine aggregated usage patterns of Our Customers to ensure that third party applications that integrate with Our Service perform as well as possible. In some cases, We apply these learnings across the Service editions to improve and develop similar features or to better facilitate the interoperability of the third party applications that Customers use with the Service. We also may test and analyze certain new features with some users before making those feature available to all users.
6.3 Security of the Service: For security purposes, We use information about Customers and their use of the Service to verify accounts and activity, to monitor suspicious or fraudulent activity and to identify violations of Service policies, and to assist Customers in their monitoring of such suspicious or fraudulent activity.
6.4 Our Legitimate Interests: To protect Our legitimate business interests and legal rights, and where required by law or where We believe it is necessary to protect our legal rights, interests and the interests of others, We use information about You in connection with legal claims, compliance, regulatory, and audit functions, and disclosures in connection with the acquisition, merger or sale of a business.

This means We collect and use Your Personal Information only where:
- We need it to provide You the Service, including to operate the Service, provide Customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the Service;
- It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by Your data protection interests, in TIQ Software’s assessment after TIQ Software’s analysis in compliance with applicable data protection laws), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Service and provide information to Customers and prospective Customers in such regard, and to protect Our legal rights and interests;
- You give Us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
- We need to process Your Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation.

TIQ Software has no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Information it processes in its provision of the Service. Any such individual who seeks access to, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete, inaccurate data, or who seeks to exercise any other right(s) they may have as a data subject, should direct their query to the TIQ Software Customer (the data controller) that assigned such individual a subscription to the Service.

TIQ Software will retain Personal Information that We process on behalf of Customers for as long as needed to provide the Service to the Customer. TIQ Software will retain and use this Personal Information as necessary to comply with Our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce Our agreements. Such retention and use conform to the timeframes set forth in the relevant agreements with Our Customers.
The security of data, which may include Personal Information, that is submitted by Customers to the TIQ Software Service (“Customer Data”), is very important to TIQ Software.
