Our Services also include tailored features that personalize your experience, enhance your productivity, and improve your ability to collaborate effectively with others. We also use information about you to connect you with other team members seeking your subject matter expertise.

For Research And Development

We are always looking for ways to make our Services smarter, faster, secure, integrated, and useful to you. We use collective learnings about how people use our Services and feedback provided directly to us to troubleshoot and to identify trends, usage, activity patterns and areas for integration and improvement of the Services. For example, to improve the search feature, we automatically analyze recent searches among users and how often they use the first result found. We automatically analyze and aggregate frequently used search terms to improve the accuracy of search results. In some cases, we apply these learnings across our Services to improve and develop similar features or to better integrate the services you use. We also test and analyze certain new features with some users before rolling the feature out to all users.

We send you secure email notifications when you or others interact with you on the Services, for example, when you are mentioned on support ticket. We al so provide tailored communications based on your activity and interactions with us. For example, certain actions you take in the Services may automatically trigger a feature suggestion within the Services that would make that task easier. We also send you communications as you onboard to a Service to help you become more proficient in using that Service.

If an opt out is available, you will find that option within t he communication itself or in your account settings.

Below, we describe the tools and processes for making these requests.

Your Request And Choices May Be Limited In Certain Cases

Data portability is the ability to obtain some of your information in a format you can move from one service provider to another (for instance, when you transfer your mobile phone number to another carrier).
