Privacy Shield Policy - SnapComms

SnapComms provides solutions that solve enterprise communication challenges with the SnapComms Employee Communications Platform. Our platform cuts through the noise of overloaded inboxes and collaboration tools to gain the immediate attention of employees so that they will view urgent notifications faster. Our customers also use the platform to communicate about leadership updates, employee wellness, system outages, cyber security alerts, and to promote employee engagement.

To make use of the platform and/or our SnapComms App, our customers provide information like employee names, job titles, business email addresses and employee mobile telephone numbers for SnapComms to process. We’ll also use some of this information to provide customer and technical support. Since our customers are typically companies using the service on behalf of their employees, SnapComms has no direct relationship with the individuals whose personal information we process.

There are exceptions, though. For example, SnapComms will collect information when someone directly engages with the SnapComms website to download a trial or request a demonstration of the SnapComms solution. This information may include your name, job title and your business contact information, like an email address and business telephone number.

In all cases, SnapComms takes appropriate steps to safeguard your personal information, regardless of how it is provided to us.
