Privacy Policy

Effective as of 12/1/2020

ActiveCove deeply cares about your personal information and how it is being used and shared. We have a high bar and take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy. By using or accessing our Services in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information in the following ways.

What's covered by the Privacy Policy?

This Privacy Policy covers how we treat personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that ActiveCove and its services gather when you are interacting with our offerings. However it won't cover the practices of companies we don’t control/own, or people who are not part of ActiveCove as an organization. We limit the gathering of any type of Personal Information from users, as explained in more detail below, to a need-to-know basis for ActiveCove to provide its service's user experiences. We may choose to use this Personal Information internally for our services to allow personalization, delivery of service, and make improvmenets to our services, to allow users to set up personal user accounts and profiles, to contact users and allow other users to contact each other, to fulfill requests for ActiveCove's products and services, and to understand how users use the services. In certain cases, we may choose to share Personal Information with third parties, but only as described below.

Will ActiveCove ever choose to change this Privacy Policy?

Yes. As part of making constant improvmenets to our services we may need to adapt this Privacy Policy over time, but we will alert you to changes by placing notices on ActiveCove's websites and points of distribution, by sending users emails, and/or by other means of communication. Please note that if you have chosen not to receive legal notice emails from us (or chose to not share your personal email address with ActiveCove), those legal notices will still govern the use of ActiveCove's services, and users are still responsible for reading and understanding them. If you continue to use the services after changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes. The use of information collected now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is collected.

What information does ActiveCove collect?

Information Provided to ActiveCove:

We receive and store any information you knowingly provide to us. Currently we provide communication features through the third party platform Intercom that will allow you to send us a message, optionally specifying your email address. You could choose to share any other way for us to contact you. All opt-in; none is required.

We may communicate with you if you’ve provided us the means to do so. For example, if you’ve given us your email address, we may reach out to ask questions or send you promotional email offers. We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us communicate more effectively and improve our services. If you do not want to receive any further communications from ActiveCove, please let us know by emailing info@activecove.com.

Information Collected Automatically

We currently do not record any personal information about you unless it's provided to us explicitly (e.g. feedback) as part of our services. While ActiveCove's Marquee is using industry standard web technologies to deliver its UX it is a self-contained application that executes on users' devices. Marquee makes use of geo location information based on IP address and aggregates various forms of news and entertainment information which Marquee retrieves from online feeds. Geolocation as well as information about requests' origins are being aggregated (no personal information whatsoever) with the sole purpose to gain insights about how Marquee is being used to continuously improve the application experience. Relevant data and aggregated reports are being stored in secure datastores with multi-factor authentication only accessible to ActiveCove staff. Marquee does not share or upload any personal information gathered as part of running on a user's device. Marquee will respect privacy settings (e.g. VS Code's telemetry choices in settings) for collecting anonymous request information such as session cookies, origin IP addresses, VS Code machine identifiers, etc. Currently Marquee might choose to collect the following properties containing no personal information (respects VS Code telemetry settings telemetry.enableTelemetry) as part of delivering the Marquee experience itself and via third party platforms such as Intercom (communication) & Sentry (error aggregation):

  • extension name
  • extension version
  • machine ID and session ID from VS Code
  • operating system
  • platform version
  • origin IP address
  • reverse geolocation based on IP
  • custom events associated with actions (no personal information)

The collection of information works analogous to Microsoft's best practices as showcased in vscode-extension-telemetry. The use of Intercom is opt-in and pseudo-anonymous unless you choose to share your personal information. As part of leveraging aforementioned third party platforms inside of Marquee we may choose to automatically record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our services, and information about application modals or views.

Whenever you interact with our web properties (https://marquee.activecove.com/ or https://activecove.com/), we similarly may choose to automatically record information on our server logs from your browser or device, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our services, and the pages or features you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features. Please note that using Marquee currently requires no interaction with ActiveCove's web properties.

Will ActiveCove Share Any of the Personal Information it Receives?

We do not rent or sell your Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone.

What personal information can I access?

You may access, and, in some cases, edit or delete the following information you’ve provided to us:

  • name
  • phone number
  • organization name
  • email address
  • location

The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Services change. If you have any questions about viewing or updating information we have on file about you, please contact us at info@activecove.com.

Under California Civil Code Sections 1798.83-1798.84, California residents are entitled to contact us to prevent disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes; in order to submit such a request, please contact us at info@activecove.com. California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of Personal Information which we share with our affiliates and/or third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such affiliates and/or third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to: info@activecove.com.

What choices do I have?

You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.

You may be able to add, update, or delete information as explained above. When you update information, however, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records. Some information may remain in our records after your deletion of such information from your account. We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.

What if I have questions about this policy?

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our privacy policies, please send us a detailed message to info@activecove.com, and we will try to resolve your concerns.
