Collection of your Personal Information
Alliance may collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address, and phone number.
Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by Alliance. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access time and referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the Alliance website.
Alliance encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Alliance so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. Alliance is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Alliance website.
Use of your Personal Information
Alliance collects and uses your personal information to operate its website(s) and deliver the services you have requested.
Alliance may also use your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from Alliance and its affiliates. Alliance may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential services that may be offered.
Alliance does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
Alliance may share data with trusted partners to help perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide those services to Alliance, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
Alliance may keep track of the websites and pages our users visit within Alliance, in order to determine what Alliance services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Alliance to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
Alliance will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Alliance or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Alliance; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Alliance, or the public.
The Alliance website may use “cookies” to help personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Alliance pages, or register with Alliance site or services, a cookie helps Alliance to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information. When you return to the same Alliance website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Alliance features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Alliance services or websites you visit.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The European Union has enacted sweeping regulations to put control of the use of your personal information back in your hands. This impacts MyObjectives in two ways: Visitors to our website who request us to contact them are voluntarily supplying us with contact information which we then use as described in our privacy statement above; Subscribers to our MyObjectives software service voluntarily supply certain billing information to our global payment processor, and their name and an email address to us to gain access to our service.
Like most internet-based Software-as-a-Service offerings, we extend all of our privacy policies to all users of our website and of our web-service, regardless of geographic location.
It’s important for you to understand that with MyObjectives, as with many on-line services, there are two aspects to your presence on the web. We operate a marketing site as well as the software service, and so your personal information may be in two different places. The marketing site learned about you when you requested that we contact you. The software service learned about you either when you subscribed or your company subscribed to our service and added your name and email address as an individual authorized to access your company information. They are independent from one another to give you control over each separately, allowing you, for example, to request that we no longer market to you but still allowing you to access the MyObjectives service.
While you could use MyObjectives in a way the has you entering personally identifiable information into objective definitions, key result descriptions or status notes, that would be an unusual use of the service. Regardless, though, we don’t look at your content unless you ask us to, probably during a webconference call with our support staff. As we indicated in our privacy statement above, the information we collect during your use of the service is limited to the mechanical information that can help us identify areas to improve our functional operation of the software: How long did you spend on the first step of the scorecard wizard? Are lots of people spending the same amount of time there? That might help us make that area work better in the future.

The GDPR is somewhat bold; more construction may be ahead. So is our approach in extending the protection that it offers to all of our users. It’s definitely the right decision morally, but the decision comes with practical benefits as well — having only one framework for how information is stored and handled leaves far less opportunity for error. But, since this is all sort of new territory, we’re probably going to need to adapt as cases in courts around the globe set precedent post-implementation. We’re going to be open and communicative about any changes and why we’re making them.
Have questions about our privacy policies? Please, drop us a line and we’ll have a discussion.
And remember, we’re human, too.
Effective as of June 13, 2016. GDPR update effective May 25th, 2018.
