When you use our services, you’re trusting us with your information. We understand this is a big responsibility and work hard to protect your information and put you in control.
When we refer to “Scapegrace”, we mean the Scapegrace entity that acts as the controller or processor of your information, as explained in more detail in the “Identifying the Data Controller and Processor” section below.
Things you create or provide to us
Scapegrace may collect and receive Customer Data and other information and data (“Other Information”) in a variety of ways:
- Customer Data. Customers or individuals granted access to an Organisation by a Customer (“Authorised Users”) routinely submit Customer Data to Quitch when using the Services.
- Other Information. Scapegrace also collects, generates and/or receives Other Information:
- Quitch and Account Information. To create or update a Quitch account, you or your Customer (e.g., your employer) supply Scapegrace with an email address, display name, password, domain and/or similar account details. In addition, Customers that purchase a paid version of the Services provide Scapegrace (or its payment processors) with billing details such as credit card information, banking information and/or a billing address.
- Usage Information.
- Services Metadata. When an Authorised User interacts with the Services, metadata is generated that provides additional context about the way Authorised Users work. For example, Scapegrace logs the Organisation, Course Content, features and links you interact with, the types of files shared and what Third Party Services are used (if any).
- Log data. As with most websites and technology services delivered over the Internet, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use our Websites or Services and record it in log files. This log data may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the address of the web page visited before using the Website or Services, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration and plugins, language preferences and our cookie data.
- Device information. Scapegrace collects information about devices accessing the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this Other Information often depends on the type of device used and its settings.
- Location information. We receive information from you, your Customer and other third-parties that helps us approximate your location. We may, for example, use a business address submitted by your employer, or an IP address received from your browser or device to determine approximate location. Scapegrace may also collect location information from devices in accordance with the consent process provided by your device.
- Third Party Services. Customer can choose to permit or restrict Third Party Services for their Workspace. Typically, Third Party Services are software that integrate with our Services, and Customer can permit its Authorised Users to enable and disable these integrations for their Organisation. Once enabled, the provider of a Third Party Service may share certain information with Scapegrace. For example, if a cloud storage application is enabled to permit files to be imported to an Organisation, we may receive user name and email address of Authorised Users, along with additional information that the application has elected to make available to Scapegrace to facilitate the integration. Authorised Users should check the privacy settings and notices in these Third Party Services to understand what data may be disclosed to Scapegrace. When a Third Party Service is enabled, Scapegrace is authorised to connect and access Other Information made available to Scapegrace in accordance with our agreement with the Third Party Provider. We do not, however, receive or store passwords for any of these Third Party Services when connecting them to the Services.
- Contact Information. In accordance with the consent process provided by your device, any contact information that an Authorised User chooses to import is collected when using the Services.
- Third Party Data. Scapegrace may receive data about organisations, industries, Website visitors, marketing campaigns and other matters related to our business from parent corporation(s), affiliates and subsidiaries, our partners or others that we use to make our own information better or more useful. This data may be combined with Other Information we collect and might include aggregate level data, such as which IP addresses correspond to post codes or countries. Or it might be more specific: for example, how well an online marketing or email campaign performed.
- Additional Information Provided to Scapegrace. We receive Other Information when submitted to our Websites or if you participate in a focus group, contest, activity or event, apply for a job, request support, interact with our social media accounts or otherwise communicate with Quitch.
Generally, no one is under a statutory or contractual obligation to provide any Customer Data or Other Information (collectively, “Information”). However, certain Information is collected automatically and, if some Information, such as Organisation setup details, is not provided, we may be unable to provide the Services. Due to the operational requirements of the Platform it is not practicable for you to use a pseudonym or remain anonymous by not disclosing your identity to us.

Customer Data will be used by Scapegrace in accordance with Customer’s instructions, including any applicable terms in the Customer Agreement and Customer’s use of Services functionality, and as required by applicable law. Scapegrace is a processor of Customer Data and Customer is the controller.
