Privacy Policy

Effective 08/08/2023

Axle Tech, Inc. (“Axle,” “we”, “us” or “our”) provides a platform to directly connect institutional investors with corporations for meetings, streamlining discovery, meeting coordination, and meeting/industry insights (the “Axle Platform”).

Axle offers and operates the Axle Platform for both institutional investors and corporations, who are other businesses rather than individuals acting in their personal capacity (“Enterprise Customers”). Enterprise Customers are typically the data owners and controllers with respect to personal information of their employees and affiliated individuals (“users”, “you”, or “yours”) processed through the Axle Platform. Accordingly, we handle users’ personal information in accordance with our agreements with our Enterprise Customers. This Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”) explains how we collect, use, disclose users’ personal information in connection with the Axle Platform.

This Privacy Statement does not govern: (a) any websites, mobile applications, or other online services that do not link to this Privacy Statement; (b) the processing of personal information by the relevant Enterprise Customer outside of the Axle Platform; or (c) our processing of personal information in connection with any other service we offer. When we handle personal information on our own behalf, please refer to our privacy policy for more information.

Because Axle does not control the privacy practices of the relevant Enterprise Customers, you should review the relevant Enterprise Customer’s privacy policy(ies). Our Privacy Statement is not a substitute for any privacy notice that an Enterprise Customer may provide or be required to provide to you.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Information collected about users of the Axle Platform. The information we collect from or about users of the Axle Platform may include:

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

We use personal information to provide the Axle Platform and related services, in accordance with the relevant Enterprise Customer agreement, and for related internal purposes, such as to:

HOW AXLE SHARES YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

The parties described above may, to the extent permitted by law, use personal information as described in their own privacy policies.

AGE LIMITATIONS

The Axle Platform is not intended for use by anyone under 18 years of age. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact the relevant Enterprise Customer.

SECURITY

Axle maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to safeguard the security of personal information. Axle cannot, however, guarantee that any safeguards or security measures will be sufficient to prevent an information security issue.

SHARING DATA WITH THIRD PARTIES

Axle carefully controls the data shared with third-party tools, including advanced AI models like OpenAI's GPT. Axle limits the data shared with third-party tools to solely transcript data. Specifically, data is only transmitted to these tools when Axle's bot actively participates in a meeting at the explicit request of a user. The sole purpose of collecting transcript data during these meetings is to enhance the meeting experience by attaching comprehensive meeting notes and intelligent insights when the AI functionality is activated. Importantly, this data exchange occurs exclusively when a user has explicitly enabled AI functionality for their account in the settings and specifically opted to activate it for the respective meeting they are attending.

OTHER SITES OR APPLICATIONS

The Axle Platform may contain links to third-party websites, mobile applications, and other online services operated by third parties. When you click on a link to any other website or location, you will leave the Axle Platform and go to another site or application operated by a third party. The third party may collect personal information about you. Axle’s provision of a link to any other website or location is for your convenience and does not signify Axle’s endorsement of such other website or location or its contents. Axle has no control over, does not review, and is not responsible for these third-party websites or their content. Please be aware that this Privacy Statement does not apply to these third-party websites or applications.

Axle's use and transfer to any other app of information received from Google APIs will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements. You can also find more information in the Limited Use Requirements section of the 0Auth API Verification FAQ. Axle never shares user data collected through Google's API with third-party platforms. Axle’s use of the calendar.events API is solely for enhancing scheduling within the app. Axle retrieves event start and end times to display in the in-app calendar for personalized scheduling. Axle prioritizes user privacy by only sharing event times with the front-end client. Additionally, Axle can create events on users behalf using the calendar.events API, including the option to include Google Meet in the meeting event.

YOUR CHOICES REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Enterprise Customers are typically the data owners and controllers of an individual's personal information. As the data controller, the relevant Enterprise Customer (such as your employer) is responsible for receiving and responding to individuals’ requests to exercise any rights afforded to them under applicable privacy and security laws. Please direct your privacy and security requests and questions to the relevant Enterprise Customer.

Where Axle is required by law to collect your information or where Axle needs your information in order to provide the Axle Platform, if you do not provide this information when requested (or the information is removed), Axle may not be able to provide you with the Axle Platform and its associated services.

CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT

Axle reserves the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time. The Axle Platform, laws, regulations and industry standards as well as our business operations may evolve which may make changes to this Privacy Statement appropriate. Axle will post the changes to this page. Axle encourages you to review the Privacy Statement to stay informed. Continued use of the Axle Platform following the effective date of any changes to this Privacy Statement indicates your agreement to such changes.

HOW TO CONTACT US

Please direct your privacy and security requests and questions to the relevant Enterprise Customer, such as your employer. If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement, you can contact us at contact@axleaccess.com.
