Atlassian” means Atlassian Pty Ltd, the owner and provider of Atlassian Marketplace and certain products (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, etc.) or other product or service, with which the Apps are used.

Personal Data” means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, like your first and last name, email address, username, usage data and so on. Personal Data does not include information that has been anonymized such that it does not allow for your identification. If you cannot be identified (e.g., when Personal Data has been aggregated and anonymized), then this Policy does not apply.

2. When We Act as Processor

Our Apps and Websites are intended to be used by organizations and businesses. Where we provide an App to an organization (e.g., to your employer or a client of your employer) that organization controls the information processed with the use of the App or by the App. This organization is the controller of the information, including your Personal Data, and is responsible for the accounts used to access the App, including your Atlassian account.

If this is the case:

  • this Policy does not apply to our interactions with you, since in this context we act solely as a processor of your data on behalf of controller (e.g. organization you work with/for);

  • we are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of a controller's organization, which may be different than this Policy; and

  • please direct your data privacy questions and requests to your organization, as your use of the App is subject to that organization's policies.

3. Third Parties Processing Your Personal Data

This Policy does not cover the collection, processing, storage or use of your Personal Data, by Atlassian or any other third parties. We do not control when or how third parties collect, process, store or use your Personal Data. Please, refer to privacy policies of third parties in order to learn and understand how and when they use your information.

For example, the Atlassian Privacy Policy governs collection and use of your information by Atlassian.

4. When We Act as Controller

There might be cases when you use our Apps not as an employee, contractor or representative of an organization, or when we, not your organization, determine the purposes and means of the processing, including collection, of your Personal Data. This Policy applies to such cases and they will be described further in more details.

5. App-Specific Privacy and Data Collection Terms

Some of our Apps may be subject to additional privacy and data collection terms specific to that App. If this is the case, such additional terms can be found on “Privacy Policy” tab of the App’s page on Atlassian Marketplace website.

6. What Data We Collect and How We Do That

When you visit our Website, use our App or contact us directly we collect and process your Personal Data. The ways we collect it can be broadly categorized into the following:

6.1. Information you provide to us directly

When you use our Apps and Websites we might ask you to provide Personal Data to us. For example, we ask for your contact information when you set up an account with us, contact us with questions or request support, or you may provide your Personal Data to us when you provide feedback or make posts on our blog, forum or wiki pages.

6.2. Information we collect automatically

We collect some information about you automatically when you visit our Websites, like your region, type of device you use, type of browser you use, language of your browser. We collect some information about you automatically when you use certain Cloud Apps, like the type of device you use, type of browser you use, language of your browser or the screen resolution of your monitor or device. For certain Cloud Apps we also collect App-specific usage data, including App-specific events or actions, like the App features you use, the links you click on, the type, size and file formats of attachments you upload to the App, and how you interact with others when using the App. This information is useful for us as it helps us get a better understanding of how you are using and configuring our Apps and Websites so that we can improve them and continue to provide the best experience possible. We collect such usage data automatically upon installation of the App by your system administrator.

Some of this information is collected using cookies, similar tracking technologies and third-party tools like Google Analytics.

Please note that, by using the Websites and/or Apps, you agree to our use of cookies as described in this Policy.

We use persistent cookies to recognize you when you use our Cloud Apps. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Most browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. You may be able to reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you do not want us to use cookies, please be sure to block or disable them in your browser.

We also use session cookies that allow us to link your actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close it. Session cookies are created temporarily and are deleted once the browser window is closed.

We use our own cookies (first party cookies):

  • to remember your choice about cookies on the Websites and for the Apps;

  • to recognize you when you visit the Website and Apps;

  • to remember your preferences.

In addition, we work with reputable service providers who can use their cookies when you use the Website and Apps (third party cookies). First of all, we use Google Analytics, in particular, to collect App-specific usage data. Google Analytics collects only the anonymous information rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your Personal Data. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on the web browser you use to identify you as a unique user, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy.

Another example of such a third party is DISQUS, a comment hosting service, which may set cookies on your browser.

This Policy does not cover the use of cookies and other similar technologies by third parties, which services we may utilize.

Web browsers will enable you to see what cookies you have got, allow you to delete them all or on an individual basis, and enable you block or allow cookies for all websites or individually selected websites. You can also normally turn off third party cookies separately (e.g., to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout).

6.3. Information we get from third parties

We might collect Personal Data about you from third parties like Atlassian or your organization (from your employer or from other users of the App). For example, Atlassian provides us with billing and technical contacts details (name, address, email and phone number) upon installation of the App.

You may have the opportunity to connect to certain Apps through Facebook's or Google's API. If you connect to us through Facebook or Google, either when you register or after you have registered, we will collect, store, and use in accordance with this Policy information you agreed that Facebook or Google could provide to us through their API (e.g., your name and email address). The information we may collect in such case may include any information according to your Facebook or Google privacy settings, including your name, profile picture, email address and etc.

When you use certain Apps that integrate Atlassian products with non-Atlassian products, the former may provide us with your username (e.g., Evernote).
