Access to Service or Site: To access this Service, you need to create an account. If you access this Service using an email address with a domain that is owned by your organisation or employer, and such an organisation wishes to create an account, some information about you may become accessible to your organisation’s administrator and other users using the same domain. The information collected includes your name, contact details, profile picture, content, and actions performed.
As an administrator for a group of users of this Service, we may share your contact information with other users to facilitate requests related to the use of this Service.

Sharing with third parties
Third-party service providers: We liaise with third parties that help us operate, improve, integrate, maintain, customize, support, and promote this Service. As a result, we may share some of your information with these third-parties.

In some cases, your organisation administrator can at any time, with or without notice, delete and remove your data from this Service.
Additionally, we may retain your data for an appropriate period, even after our relationship with you ends, to protect ourselves from legal claims, or for future reference purposes.
