Our Services are designed to help customers find business profile information of individuals they seek in order to interact with them. Swordfish enables its customers to access business profiles of these contacts for the purpose of supplementing the data customers have about these contacts.
“Users” are Swordfish individual customers or business customer representatives who download, install, or use the Swordfish browser extension (the “Plugin”) or access the Swordfish Website - www.swordfish.ai (the “Site”). Users may be fraud prevention professionals, investigators (e.g., law enforcement and fraud detection teams in businesses), recruiters and other human resources professionals, or vendors (e.g. sales professionals, B2B partners, or sales platforms).
“Contacts” are people whose identities are being confirmed, who are the subject of an investigation, or who are being contacted by Users, for example for recruitment or sales purposes. An example of identity confirmation occurs when a person signs up for an online service and a User working for the service wants to make sure that the person signing up is who he or she claims to be. Law enforcement Users may be investigating certain Contacts or seeking to contact witnesses to events under investigation.
Swordfish operates as a search platform, and therefore most of the information it retrieves is not created or collected directly by Swordfish. Rather, our third party data providers retrieved the information from the web or from the contribution of relevant data from other users and business partners.
Swordfish is a registered data controller in the United Kingdom. In addition, Swordfish is a registered data broker in the States of California and Vermont, U.S.A.
Most of the Business Profile information to which we have access comes from Third Party Databases, which our trusted business partner data providers collect from publicly available sources. They also receive personal information from their business partners who own established and legitimate directories or from publicly available sources. In addition, Swordfish also collects Business Profile information itself and stores it in the Swordfish Database. In response to a User query, our algorithms process this information contained in the Databases in order to identify the most up-to-date information related to each Business Profile.
Swordfish Salesforce App – If a User chooses to connect its Salesforce or other customer relationship management (CRM) application account to the Swordfish Salesforce App, Swordfish will not collect information from the Salesforce account. Instead, the effect of the connection is for the Salesforce account to receive updated information about Contacts from Swordfish. In other words, the communication of personal information is one-way from Swordfish to the User’s Salesforce or CRM account.
If you prefer that we not disclose your Business Profile to our Users, vendors or business partners, you may opt-out by filling in your relevant details at www.swordfishapp.com/Optout. In this case, we shall not continue to use or disclose your Business Profile. To learn more on our commitment to respect your rights in accordance with applicable privacy and data protection regulations, please see “Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Information” below.
As explained in detail below, we collect two main types of information. The first type (i.e. “Business Profiles”). Business Profiles consist of available contact information (name, phone number, email address, postal address, company name, and job title) and social media account URLs available to us about the requested individual. Swordfish returns Business Profiles to Users using our Services in response to their requests. The second type of information (i.e. “User’s Data”) is mainly collected to allow Users to open and maintain an account with Swordfish and to use the Services using the Site, our Plugin, or file upload features.
Swordfish collects Business Profile personal information about individuals itself as described in Section 3 and 4 below and stores it in the Swordfish Database. Our third party data providers collect Business Profile personal information from different public sources, namely: (i) third parties who license, sell, or otherwise provide personal information they have collected to our third party data providers; or (ii) information from publicly available sources, such as via the Internet and social networks.
We collect two categories of information from our Users:
In order to improve the Services for all users, improve accuracy, and return more useful information to customers, Swordfish adds User information into the Swordfish Database. In other words, a User’s contact information becomes a new Business Profile and a User will also be a Contact.
By becoming a User, you consent to become a Contact as well, and other Users will be able to look up your Business Profile when using the Services.
