Additional Information Regarding Services

We collect this personal data to provide you with the best experience with our Services. Mostly, we gather Personal Data directly from you, directly from your devices, or directly from someone who communicates with you using COLLABORATE Space Services, such as a meeting host, participant, or caller. Some of our collection happens on an automated basis – that is, it’s automatically collected when you interact with our Products. In certain instances, you can choose whether to provide Personal Data to the Services but note that you may be unable to access certain options and services if they require Personal Data that you have not provided.

We may also obtain information about you from a user who uses the Services. For example, a user may input your contact information when you are invited to a COLLABORATE Space meeting or call. Similarly, a COLLABORATE Space meeting host may record a COLLABORATE Space meeting and store the recording on our system. If a COLLABORATE Space meeting participant decides to record a meeting, that person is responsible for obtaining any necessary consent from you before recording a meeting.

Customer Content is information provided by the customer to ClearOne through the usage of the service. Customer Content includes the content contained in cloud recordings, and instant messages, files, whiteboards, and shared while using the service. Customer Content does not refer to data generated by ClearOne’s network and systems (i.e., data that ClearOne creates because the customer is using the system (e.g., meeting routing information and other meeting metadata).

If you participate in a Recorded Meeting or you subscribe to ClearOne cloud recording services, we collect information from you in connection with and through such recordings. This information may include Personal Data. Meeting hosts are responsible for notifying you if they are recording a meeting, and you will generally hear a notice or see an on-screen notification when recording is in progress.


We, or third-party data processors acting on our behalf, collect, use, and store the personal information we collect to:

  • allow you to access and use our Site;
  • communicate with you (see Communicating With You section below);
  • register users;
  • process requests and or services;
  • provide technical support;
  • customize preferences;
  • recognize you when you return to our Site;
  • enable you to participate in our surveys, contests, or trainings;
  • administer our Site or the Services;
  • ensure the security of our Services and our Site;
  • comply with any procedures, laws and regulations which apply to us – this may include where we reasonably consider it is in our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of others to comply, as well as where we are legally required to do so; and
  • establish, exercise, or defend our legal rights – this may include where we reasonably consider it is in our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of others, as well as where we are legally required to do so.

Additional Information About COLLABORATE Space Services 

Some of this information may be shared with other meeting participants. For example, all messages and content you share in a meeting, including Personal Data about you or others, will be available to all other participants in that meeting (unless you elect to chat with a subset of meeting participants). If you invite another user who is not already in the meeting, when that user tries to join the meeting, he or she will be able to see the list of other users in the meeting, as well as other invitees joining the meeting.

Your use of certain product features will result in the sharing or publication of some of your Personal Data. For example, if you participate in a COLLABORATE Space discussion forum or chat room, you should be aware that the information you provide there will be made broadly available to others, who have access to that discussion forum or chat room.

We may collect information about your broad geographic location (city-level location) when you are using our Services or have them installed on your device. We use this information for service-related purposes (such as optimizing your connection to our data center), supporting compliance (such as by telling us where you’re located, which can determine what laws or regulations apply to you. We do not “track” if you are using location data and we only use this information in connection with providing the best experience with the services to you.

We do not allow marketing companies, advertisers, or anyone else to access Personal Data in exchange for consideration of any kind.


We will contact you (including by email) with information about our products, services and offers which either you request, or which we believe you may be interested in (including through newsletters, alerts, and reminders about recurring events), unless you have told us that you don’t want to receive these messages, or, otherwise, if it is in our legitimate interests, for business development and marketing purposes. From time to time, we will send you service-related emails, such as a welcome email when you register for certain Site offerings.

If you provide us personal information when you communicate with us (including in person, by phone, or via email) this information may be shared with our Business Partner Services or a technical representative, employee, or expert that is most likely to be able to address your inquiry. This information will be used only for the purpose of responding to your inquiry.



We may share personal information we collect from your responses to opinion polls or surveys with third parties. If we do so, we will provide you with notice and the opportunity to consent.



If you subscribe to a promotion conducted by ClearOne and/or one of our partners, we may contact you in connection with that particular promotion, including in order to update you regarding your status, administer the promotion, or let you know that a promotion has ended.



Like most websites, we, our service providers, and our third-party partners may collect certain information about your interaction with our Site. This information may be stored in log files. Information stored in log files may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and other information.

None of these anonymized, aggregated reports or statistics will enable our users to be personally identified.

If you have a password protected account with one of our Services, we will use your account information to verify your identity. If not, we will ask you to provide additional information needed to verify your identity.

In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your personal information to a third party, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you unless doing so would violate the law or court order.

In our sole discretion, we may also disclose information we collect to a third party when we believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse, or illegal conduct, including to enforce or apply our terms and conditions or any other agreement or to respond to any claims, or to protect our rights or the rights of a third party.

We keep your personal information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which the personal information is processed.

We take precautions to protect information that we collect from our Users. We protect the information entrusted to us by taking all reasonable precautions to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information, including through use of appropriate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards and measures.
