Fastvue takes the privacy of your data seriously. We are people too and will always treat your data the same way we would expect other companies to handle our own data, and that of our families.
Fastvue collects data in two ways; Actively and Passively.
Actively collected data is information voluntarily provided by you by submitting a web form, activating our software, or by communicating with our company and it is obvious what data you are volunteering. Passively collected data is information collected behind the scenes such as the pages you visit on our website, or the advertising campaign that brought you to our website. We do not use passively-collected information to determine your identity. Your identity is voluntarily provided by you, via an ‘active’ method.
More specific details on the methods we use to collect data are described below.
When you download Fastvue or WebSpy software, request a quote, or submit any other web form on fastvue.co or webspy.com, the information submitted in the form is collected. Generally, this will include:
Certain forms request other information, such as the number of users in your organization, your preferred partner if requesting a quote, or your credit card details if purchasing the software.
Fastvue utilizes some third party organizations to collect and process this information in a secure, compliant manner. For more information, see the section Who Fastvue shares your data with below.
Advertising Campaign information that is not visible on our website forms may also be submitted along with the visible information in our web forms.
Once you have purchased our software, you will receive a license key that needs to be entered into the software in order to activate it on your server.
Our Fastvue Reporter products send the following licensing information to our servers at licensing.fastvue.co over HTTPS each day. This is done once a license key is entered into the software to ensure the software's usage adheres with our licensing terms.
In our WebSpy products, during unlock code request, we collect:

For statistical purpose, Fastvue may collect website usage information and store it in log files. These logs files will contain standard information collected by web servers, such as client IP address, browser type, internet service provider and operating system. No personal information is collected in web server logs. This information is used internally to administer our website and to gather demographic information about our user base.
Fastvue API / Web Services
Fastvue and WebSpy’s software call out to Fastvue’s API servers to check for, and download, updates to software and configuration files. Fastvue’s API / Web Services do not collect any personally identifiable information, but the web server(s) serving the web requests will log standard information, such as the public IP address and public host name of the server that the Fastvue or WebSpy software is installed on. These log files are used to analyze how the Fastvue API and Web Services are performing.

Your data is shared with the appropriate Fastvue team members to resolve your issue and is never shared externally.

As mentioned, we use third-party services, cookies and beacons that may collect information about you or your such as the advertising campaign that resulted in you finding our website, and submitting a form (what we call a conversion).
Passively collected information is important to us to make sure we’re not wasting our money or time on marketing methods that don’t work, or building web pages that no one looks at. This allows us to focus our efforts in the right places, and build better products and services for you.
Passively collected information is used to:
If we have collected direct information from you, you may receive emails from Fastvue to update you on our products and services, and emails or phone calls from employees at Fastvue to make sure you are happy with our software and to answer your questions or issues.
If we have collected passive information from you, you may see advertising messages from Fastvue when visiting other websites. This data is not personally identifiable but does make up the statistics Fastvue uses to analyze website activity. For example, your browsing activity on our website will count towards the ‘number of sessions’ and ‘number of unique visitors’ on our website.
Authorized service providers
Fastvue uses some authorized service providers to collect and store your data.
For example, the data you submit in forms on our website is collected securely in the form builder software we use, before it is securely posted to our customer relationship management software and our email marketing provider.

We may share your personal information with authorized service providers that perform certain services on our behalf. These services may include:
