2 Information we collect and receive

We collect data to operate effectively and provide you the best experience by recording how you interact with our products. For example, by receiving error reports or when you contact us directly. We do not obtain data from any third parties. We will never collect any documents, pictures, or messages from your organization in our Services.

In the following sections, you will find an overview of the data that is collected by our Services.

2.1 Information collected by the TagTeam app (Microsoft Teams app)

This section describes what information is collected by the TagTeam Microsoft Teams application.

TagTeam is an application that allows you to tag channel posts with custom tags and view/filter the tagged posts in an additional channel tab. You can create, change and delete tags. When creating the tags, a name and a color can be selected for categorization. You can tag posts in two ways:

  1. Using the message extension TagTeam and choosing a tag.
  2. Using the TagTeam bot by mentioning @TagTeam in your post and choosing a tag.

To provide you with the best experience possible, we collect and store data such as the team ID, the channel ID, and the created tag names/color ID. This information is required for the TagTeam application to work. Furthermore, we collect the domain name and the email address of the tag creator. This data is used only to communicate with you about our service and will not be shared with third parties.
