GoTo International Privacy Policy

Last Updated on January 3, 2024


Who We Are and Scope of this Privacy Policy

We are the GoTo group of companies, when visiting our webpages from non-United States locations, the primary controller shall be the applicable GoTo affiliate identified here (in each case, referred to in this Privacy Policy as “GoTo,” “we” or similar pronouns). Our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products ("Services") are used to simplify how people connect with each other and the world around them to drive meaningful interactions, deepen relationships, and create better outcomes for professionals and businesses.

In this Privacy Policy, we explain what personal data we collect from visitors to the GoTo websites and/or properties that link to this Privacy Policy (including our digital properties listed here) and how we use such personal data.

It is important to note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any other data, such as any personal data that may be included in the files, documents, recordings, chat logs, transcripts, and similar data that we maintain on our customers’ behalf, as well as any other information our customers may upload to their GoTo account(s) in connection with their use of our Services (which we refer to as “Content” in our Terms of Service) or information gathered from other channels, such as publicly available sources. For the avoidance of doubt, we process customer Content, including any personal data which may be included therein, solely for the purpose of providing and operating our Services to our customers and only in accordance with their written instructions, which typically take the form of our Terms of Service, a Data Processing Addendum and/or any similar written agreement between GoTo and our customer.

Data Categories and Collection Purposes

When you visit our website(s) and/or use our Services, you provide the following categories of personal data to us:

  • Customer Account and Registration Data is data you provide when you create your account with us, request support or technical assistance, or register for events, webinars, whitepapers and surveys, which typically includes first and last name, billing data, and a valid email address. We need this data to provide the Services to you, to maintain and support your account, as well as to collect payment. Legal basis for the processing of this data is our legitimate interest to do business with you, your employer or business and perform our contractual obligations under the applicable Services agreement.
  • Service Data (including Session, Location and Usage data): When you visit our websites and use our Services, we receive data that you or others voluntarily enter, including on schedules and attendee lists, as well as data automatically logged by the website or Service, for example, duration of session, connections made, hardware, equipment and devices used, IP addresses, location, language settings, operating system used, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. We need this information to provide, operate, and improve our Services. We collect location-based data for the purpose of providing, operating, and supporting the service and for fraud prevention and security monitoring; you can disable location data transmission on mobile devices at any time by disabling location services from the settings menu on your device. Legal basis for the processing of this data is our legitimate interest to do business with you, your employer or business, or customers that use our Services to communicate with you and your business and perform our contractual obligations under the applicable Services agreement.

We strive to limit the types and categories of personal data that is collected from, and processed on behalf of, our users to include only information which is necessary to achieve the purpose(s) for which it was collected and we do not use personal data for additional purpose(s) which are incompatible with their initial collection. In other words, we have measures and policies in place designed to ensure that we only collect and process information from our users that we believe is necessary to operate and provide them with a world-class Service.

We also process your personal data to comply with applicable laws, including those of the European Union ("EU") and/or individual European Economic Area ("EEA") Member States, Switzerland, and United Kingdom, and such compliance obligations are the legal basis for such processing.

If you grant consent to our placement of cookies or for us to contact you for marketing purposes, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes and the legal basis for such processing is your consent. We may also contact you under a legitimate business purpose (e.g., if you are a current subscriber to one of our Services).

Google Analytics and Adobe Marketing Cloud

We use Google Analytics as described in “How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps.” You can prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics on our websites by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on here. For enhanced privacy purposes, we also employ IP address masking, a technique used to truncate IP addresses collected by Google Analytics and store them in an abbreviated form to prevent them from being traced back to individual users. Portions of our website may also use Google Analytics for Display Advertisers including DoubleClick or Dynamic Remarketing which provide interest-based ads based on your visit to this or other websites. You can use Ads Settings to manage the Google ads you see and opt-out of interest-based ads. We also use Adobe Marketing Cloud as described here. You can similarly exercise your rights with respect to use of this data as described in the “Exercising Choice” section below.

Social Media: Many of our websites include social media features, such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter “share” buttons. If you use these features they may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly – you can exercise your rights with respect to the use of this data as specified in the “Exercising Choice” section below. These services will also authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal data with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form or provide feedback. Your interactions with these features are governed by the Privacy Policy of the third-party company providing them.

You can still view our websites if you choose to set your browser to refuse all cookies; however, you will need to keep certain cookies enabled to establish an account or to install the Services.

Personal data processed based on your consent will be deleted if and when you withdraw such consent. Unless requested sooner or a shorter retention period is defined in the applicable Technical and Organizational Measures (TOMs), your account will be deleted or anonymized no later than twenty-four (24) months from the date of Service termination, expiration, or non-use.
