Creation of Anonymous Data for Analytics

We may create anonymous data from your personal information and other individuals whose personal information we collect.

Third Party Products and Services

The Services may integrate with or enable access to third party tools.  Third party tools registered, installed, or accessed by end users are governed by those third party providers’ privacy notices.  Please review those notices carefully, as Fuze does not control and cannot be responsible for these providers’ privacy or information security practices.
