Docunight’s use of this information includes the following general purposes: contacting you, customizing the content you view, fulfilling your requests for products or services, improving our services, conducting research, and providing anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

We also may obtain personally identifiable information from reputable third parties in order to further enhance your user experience with the Docunight Services.


Cookies are small bits of information placed on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies remember information about your activities on a website. For example, cookies can store your session for easy sign-in to a website you have previously visited. They enable us to make your visits to the Docunight Site more enjoyable. 

We may use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of the Docunight Services to personally identifiable information obtained from you or a reputable third party and to obtain anonymous aggregated data (as described below). For example, if you have asked us to send you information about our upcoming services or promotions, cookie or click stream data about your activities using the Docunight Services may allow us to limit the materials we send you to items that we think you will find interesting, based on your prior online activities and preferences.

You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent or to refuse cookies completely. However, without cookies, you will not have access to certain Docunight Services.


Anonymous data is information (originally personally identifiable or non-personally identifiable) that subsequently is used in aggregate form. We may use anonymous data for purposes of research or analysis. We may conduct research on our customer demographics, internet usage, and interests and behavior based on the personal data we gather. Docunight may share this type of anonymous data with a variety of third parties, including its affiliates, advertisers and other current and prospective business partners. But because it is anonymous, these third parties will not be able to contact you based on this data.

We may use anonymous data collected for website administration and promotional purposes with Google Analytics, and we may share such information with various affiliated and unaffiliated entities for such purposes. For example, IP addresses are used for the purposes of system administration and to provide anonymous aggregated data to affiliates about the volume of use on the Docunight Services. Anonymous click stream and demographic information may also be shared with our business partners.

You will be given an opportunity to notify Docunight how it may use your personally identifiable information (for more information on specific uses for which you will have consent rights, please refer to the section titled “How does Docunight use my personally identifiable information?”).

Whether you opt-in or opt-out of receiving communications from Docunight, we reserve the right to send you administrative messages, service announcements, and other similar communications without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them. This is important in case we need to communicate with you about items such as your account, website maintenance, and other non-promotional matters. From time to time, you may be given an opportunity to indicate your preferences regarding various account settings, communication preferences or other information related to your account. For example, if you wish to receive additional communications relevant to you, such as alert messages about your favorite content, you will need to elect to receive them. Therefore, please take that opportunity to review and select your preferences carefully.


We will use the personally identifiable information you provide to us in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Only if you have given Docunight consent, we may (i) use your personally identifiable information to provide you with information about Docunight’s features, services and other offerings that may be of interest to you; or (ii) send information or offers to users on behalf of Docunight’s partners (please note that if we were to do this, we would not give those partners personally identifiable information such as your name or address).

Docunight’s employees, agents, and contractors must have a legitimate business reason to obtain access to your personally identifiable information. We may share your personally identifiable information with companies that provide services to us, including outside contractors or agents who help us manage our information activities (for example, subscription administration). But they may only use your personally identifiable information to provide us with a specific service and not for any other purpose. Similarly, we may share your personally identifiable information with other people or entities in order to provide goods or services that you have requested or to complete a transaction at your request.

There may be instances when we may disclose personally identifiable information without providing you with a choice in order to protect the legal rights of Docunight or its affiliates, and each of their respective investors, directors, officers, employees, agents, and suppliers; to protect the safety and security of users of the Docunight Services or to enforce our Terms of Use; to protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or to comply with or respond to the law or legal process, whether or not legally required. If you submit a Notice of Copyright Infringement pursuant to the Terms of Use, we will send a copy to the person or entity who uploaded, stored or transmitted the material addressed by the communication. If we sell all or part of our business, or make a sale or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, we may transfer your personally identifiable information to a third party as part of that transaction.


We use reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural measures to safeguard personally identifiable information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. For example, passwords and other sensitive information are encrypted in transit.

We employ and protect all data with SSL encryption and other security measures to ensure that your data is protected and safe. However please be advised that while we take extra measures to protect your data and integrity of your information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent unauthorized access from occurring. Please take the proper steps to maintain the security of your account information. We highly recommend that you set a tough to guess the password for your registered account with Docunight to prevent others from easily guessing your password.

We limit access to personal information about you to employees whom we believe reasonably need that information to provide products or services to you or to do their jobs.
