Information We Collect
Visitors: We collect information if you visit our Site or use the Retain Platform, even if you do not establish an account with Retain. This information includes: IP address, geographic location (country based on IP address), browser type, version and language setting and operating system type, version and language setting.
Account Creation and Use of Retain Platform: In addition to the information above, we collect your email address when you create an account with Retain.
User Data: We collect information you voluntarily provide to us in the process of using the Retain Platform. This includes data provided to us through third party integrations. We process such data on your behalf in accordance with the instructions received from you for as long as needed to provide our services, subject to this Policy.
Google APIs: We collect only the information that you authorize us to collect when you authenticate into Retain.ai using Google’s OAuth API. Retain.ai requires the following permissions to offer a base level of functionality:
Access to your calendar, in order to understand which external interactions you participate in
Read-only access to your coworkers’ calendar, if shared with you, in order to understand which external interactions they participate in
Access the names, emails and avatars of contacts in your organization in order to identify the co-workers whose calendars we should include in our analysis
Beyond the base functionality, you may also grant the following permissions to extend the coverage provided by Retain:
Read-only access to Gmail metadata, which will be used exclusively in order to estimate and report time spent on email activities with external parties
Read-only access to Drive, which will be used exclusively in order to estimate and report time spent on documents related to external parties
In both cases, the information collected may include personal information identifiers, typically in the form of email addresses and first and last names retrieved via an API. This information is used exclusively for the purposes of the service, such as attributing activity to the appropriate account based on an email sender's domain.
Other Integrations: In using the Retain service you may elect to transfer data, programmatically or otherwise, from other applications to Retain; in that case, personal information residing in those platform, such as email or first and last name, may be collected by Retain if it is deemed necessary for the purpose of delivering the service to you.
Chrome Browser Extension: If you choose to install the Retain Chrome Browser Extension, you will be asked to grant access to information that will be used to associate time spent on specific websites, such as Facebook Ads Manager, with external parties. The extension requires access to your tabs in order to understand how much time is spent on each page. In a limited number of cases, we may request access to the contents of webpages on specific domains, exclusively in order to attribute time spent on a site to a specific external party, based on the content of the page.
