The most fundamental privacy principle we follow is that by default, anything that is analyzed by Oz is private to your organization. That is, viewing the messages, files and tasks shared within a specific team requires authentication as a member of that organization.
Oz is the steward of data on behalf of the organizations that use Oz. We don’t own organization data. Organizations own their data. They like it that way and so do we.
At Oz we believe that more transparency is better than less. We try to make our product easy to use, with settings and options that are easy to find and understand. This is good for privacy, good for the product, and good for Oz customers and users.
We think that having more information be easily accessible, organized, integrated and searchable wherever you go, whatever device you have, is better than having less. So this is how we built Oz.
We DO NOT and WILL NOT share an organization's information. All data collected, analyzed and/or used by Oz is done to (1) provide a great experience for your team and (2) improve our service for your team. Everything we do is for our users.
Privacy goes hand in glove with security and confidentiality. We see these things being the three legs that keep the stool balanced and upright. Each is as important as the other and if one is missing the stool won’t stand. They are all very important to us and we take them very seriously.

We understand that by choosing Oz, you are placing some of your more important data in our hands. We are only in business if you trust us so your privacy means everything to us! Here are the key things you should know:
What information do we collect?
We collect information during the signup process as well as when you integrate Oz into your workflow, productivity, and/or collaboration tools. This includes but is not limited to your name, e-mail address, payment information, internal communications, external communications, task issues, product and product management roadmaps when specifically shared with Oz.
What do we use your information for?
The information we collect from you may be used in one or more of the following ways:
To personalize your experience.
To improve our service.
To improve customer service.
To create and modify task issues and task lists.
To generate an activity feed for you and your team.
To produce aggregate, non-personally identifiable information.
Do we share your information?
We DO NOT and WILL NOT sell your data, individually or in aggregated form. Neither will we share your data with any third party except where needed to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request. We may also share aggregated or de-identified information with our partners or others for business or research purposes. For example, we may tell a prospective Oz customer the average number of communication within a team analyzed by Oz in a day or may partner with research firm or academics to explore interesting questions about workplace collaboration and productivity. Again, this policy is not intended to prohibit the disclosure and use of aggregated or de-identified data.
We restrict access to your data to Oz employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us. All of these individuals are subjected to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.
If you add an integration, Oz may share information about you or your team with the provider of the integration. Oz is not responsible for how the provider of the integration may collect and use your data.
Oz takes reasonable steps to protect information you provide to us as part of your use of the Oz service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store and the current state of technology. We encrypt our services using secure socket layer (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. All employees, contractors and agents with access to your information are required to authenticate themselves using the OAuth protocol and multi-factor authentication (MFA). Our data collection, storage and processing operations are guarded both physically and virtually from the outside world.
Oz is not directed to children under 13. If you learn that a minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us.

We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we’ll post any changes on this page. If you continue to use Oz after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are material, we may provide more prominent notice or seek your consent to the new policy.
