How We Share Personal Data
We will only share your personal data if we have a lawful basis to do so, as illustrated by this table. We will not commercially exploit your personal data or disclose personal data for monetary or other valuable consideration. We share information about you with your consent, at your request, or as follows:
To Our Service Providers. We use third party service providers to process your personal data (e.g., your contact information, billing information, account data, and device data) to assist us in business and technical operations. Smartsheet has data processing agreements with such service providers limiting their use of and access to personal data to specific purposes. They provide services relating, but not limited to fraud detection and prevention, billing, customer support, internet and connectivity, marketing (through direct mail, email, lead generation, etc.), event organizing, security, and user experience.
To Infrastructure Hosting Providers. We use third parties for the infrastructure used to host content and personal data we process, including cloud providers. Smartsheet has data processing agreements with such service providers and their use of and access to personal data is limited to specific purposes.
To Affiliates. We share your personal data with our affiliates for our or our affiliates’ internal business purposes (e.g., when you use or purchase an affiliate’s services, when you apply to one of our global offices, etc.), marketing similar products (including lead generation and qualification purposes), or for other legal requirements.
As Custom Audiences. We share a hashed (scrambled) version of your email address, name, city, state, or similar information with advertising partners to assist us in reaching you with more relevant advertisements outside of the Sites (and to measure the success of such campaigns). These partners are not permitted to retain, use, or disclose this information for their own third-party marketing purposes. If you would like to opt out of custom audiences, complete this form.
As Required by Law. We disclose information about you if we believe we must do so to comply with the law or a subpoena, bankruptcy proceeding, or similar legal process. In certain situations, we are required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
To Protect Rights. We disclose information about you, such as your name, contact information, and billing information, to enforce our agreements with you or to protect the rights and safety of Smartsheet, our customers, our users, and the general public, or as evidence in litigation in which we are involved.
As Aggregate and Anonymized Information. We share aggregate or anonymized information about you with our third party service providers for our internal business purposes which includes marketing, advertising, research, or similar purposes (e.g. we may provide information for our earnings reports, such as the number of active users.)
In a Business Transaction. If Smartsheet is involved in a dissolution, reorganization, financing, public offering of securities, merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, your information will be transferred to providers, advisors, accountants, attorneys, the acquiring entity, or other third parties as part of the transaction (provided that we inform such individuals that they must use your personal data only for the purposes disclosed in this notice), and may also be reviewed as part of the due diligence review for the transaction (e.g., we may need to provide a list of all customer accounts and payment histories).
Blogs; Forums; Testimonials
Our Sites may contain publicly accessible blogs and interactive features (e.g., the community website). Any information you provide in these areas will be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your information from our blog or community forum, please complete this form. With your consent, we will publish testimonials you share with us, which could contain personal data such as your full name and other information you choose to share. Please note, information posted on these Sites will continue to be publicly available to others after termination or deactivation of your account with Smartsheet. If you wish to update or remove your testimonial, please complete this form.
Linked Sites; Third Party Widgets
Links to Other Websites. Our Sites include links to other websites with privacy practices that differ from ours. Any information you submit to a website not belonging to Smartsheet is governed by that site’s privacy statement.
Plugins and Social Media Widgets. Our Sites include social media features and widgets (“widgets”), such as a “share this” button or other interactive mini-programs. Widgets are used to provide you specific services from other companies (e.g., displaying the news, opinions, music, etc.). Personal data such as your email address is collected through widgets. Widgets set cookies to enable them to function properly. Widgets displayed on our Sites are not hosted by Smartsheet, and are therefore subject to the privacy policies of the third party company providing the widget rather than this notice.
