Third Party Services and Links

Some of TechSmith’s products and services (e.g. TechSmith’s Snagit® for Windows® and Mac®, Camtasia Studio®, Camtasia® for Mac applications, to name a few) interface or integrate with third party storing, sharing, and access sites and services such as Microsoft’s OneDrive site and services, and others. If you choose to store, share, or access files, content or information which may include personally identifiable information (collectively “content”) you create using TechSmith’s products and services through these services, you should review TechSmith’s Privacy Policy and you should also review the privacy policy of that service (i.e. Microsoft’s OneDrive Privacy Statement) as your content will be collected, processed and/or stored by TechSmith and/or  the third party provider, in this case Microsoft, in the United States and/or other countries. By directly using TechSmith product’s integration with the Microsoft’s OneDrive® site and services, you expressly consent to your content being shared with both TechSmith and Microsoft and such data will be subject to TechSmith’s Privacy Policy and Microsoft OneDrive Privacy Statement, and available for use with your TechSmith and Microsoft accounts.

By way of clarity, the Microsoft OneDrive® feature integrated in TechSmith products lets you store and access your user generated content on virtually any device. You can also share and collaborate on your user generated content with others. Some versions of the OneDrive application enable you to access both your personal OneDrive by signing in with your Microsoft account and your OneDrive for business as part of your organization’s use of SharePoint Online. When you use the Microsoft OneDrive® feature integrated in TechSmith products, in addition to the content TechSmith collects as indicated in TechSmith’s Privacy Policy, Microsoft collects data about your usage of the service as well as content and device information so that you can sync content across devices and roam customized settings. In addition to creating a TechSmith account, you will also need to create a Microsoft account to use the OneDrive feature. You should review the Microsoft account privacy information. You can access the OneDrive feature via TechSmith’s products and services, such as TechSmith’s Snagit application or online at

Sharing and Permissions Information for Microsoft’s OneDrive®

When you store your user generated content in OneDrive®, that content will inherit the sharing permissions of the folder in which you store it. For example, if you store content in the public folder, the content will be public and available to anyone on the Internet who can find the folder. If you store content in a private folder, the content will be private. By default, content stored in OneDrive is private unless you share it or store it in a public folder.

When you share content to a social network like Facebook® from a phone that you have synced with your OneDrive® account, your content is either uploaded to that network or a link to that content is posted to that network. Content posted to social networks and hosted on OneDrive is accessible to anyone on that social network. To delete the content, you need to delete it from the social network and on OneDrive.

When you share your user generated content through OneDrive® with your friends via a link, an email with the link is sent to those friends. The link contains an authorization code that allows anyone with the link to access your content.  If one of your friends sends the link to other people, they will also be able to access your content, even if you did not choose to share the content with them.  To revoke permissions for your content on OneDrive, sign in to your Microsoft account and then select the specific content to manage the permission levels.  Revoking permissions for a link effectively deactivates the link. No one will be able to use the link to access the content unless you decide to share the link again.

Some versions of the OneDrive® application enable you to access both your personal OneDrive® by signing in with your Microsoft account and your OneDrive for Business as part of your organization's use of SharePoint Online. Files managed with OneDrive for Business are stored separately from files stored with your personal OneDrive. OneDrive for Business collects and transmits personal data for authentication, such as your email address and password, which will be transmitted to Microsoft and/or to the provider of your SharePoint Online service.

Where We Store and Process Personal Data

Personal information collected on TechSmith sites, services, and products may be stored and processed through TechSmith’ servers located in the United States.

Microsoft takes steps to ensure that the data we collect under Microsoft’s privacy statement is processed according to the provisions of its statement and the requirements of applicable law wherever the data is located.
