Nitro may change the price it charges for the Services at any time and will notify You in advance of such changes. If You do not agree to the price change, You must cancel and stop using the Services before the price change takes effect. If there is a fixed term and price for your Services offer, that price will remain in force for that term.

8. Modification and Termination of the Service

Nitro may place limits on, modify, suspend or terminate the Service generally, may remove or disable access to any content posted by You in using the Service and may suspend or terminate Your use of the Service or terminate this Agreement at any time, including as a result of Your use of the Service that Nitro reasonably deems to be excessive, which may include usage that substantially and repeatedly exceeds the typical levels of usage by other users of same category/tier of Service.

9. Changes to this Agreement

Nitro may change this Agreement and will post the modified agreement (which shall then become the Agreement) on Nitro’s website. Therefore, Nitro encourages you to check the terms of this Agreement from time to time to see if they have been updated. If You do not agree to the modified agreement, Your sole recourse is to stop using the Service and/or Software. Your continued use of the Service or Software after the date the modified agreement is posted will constitute Your acceptance of the modified agreement.

During the Term, Nitro shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Licensee and its officers, directors, employees, Users, successors and assigns, from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, settlements, reasonable costs and expenses resulting from or arising out of any third-party claim, demand, or cause of action which alleges that the Licensed Products infringe any duly issued patent, copyright or trademark or misappropriate any trade secret right of a third party (“Claim”). Licensee shall provide Nitro with prompt written notice of any Claim and permit Nitro to control the defense, settlement, adjustment or compromise of such Claim. Licensee shall have no authority to settle any Claim on behalf of Nitro. In addition, in the event use of the Licensed Products during the Term becomes, or in Nitro’s reasonable opinion is likely to become, the subject of a claim of infringement as outlined in this Section 10, Nitro may, at its option and expense: (a) obtain for Licensee the continuing right to use such Licensed Products; or (b) modify the Licensed Products or replace them with a substantially functional equivalent so that they no longer infringe; or (c) if neither (a) nor (b) is reasonably practicable, terminate Licensee’s license to such allegedly infringing Services and/or Software and refund to Licensee any unused pre-paid fees paid to Nitro, in which case this Agreement and Licensee’s right to use the Services and/or Software will terminate. This Section 10 states Nitro’s entire liability and Licensee’s exclusive remedy with respect to any claim of intellectual property infringement.

11. Indemnification by Licensee

You will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Nitro, its affiliates, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors and any third-party providers, from and against all claims, losses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from any third-party claim against Nitro related to Your use of the Service or Software, including any document or content You submit to the Service.

Failure to enforce any provision will not constitute a waiver of that provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found unenforceable, it and any related provisions will be interpreted to best accomplish the unenforceable provision's essential purpose and, in any event, the remainder of the Agreement shall be unaffected.  The prevailing party in any action or proceeding to enforce its rights hereunder shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees and other reasonable costs incurred in the action or proceedings.

Data privacy is important and we have prepared this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use, protect and disclose data when you use any Nitro services which includes this website and any site ("Site(s)"); software provided by Nitro ("Software"); or services offered by Nitro (collectively, "Services"). "You" refers to you as a user of the Site or Services. We draw your attention in particular to the sections entitled “International Data Transfer” and “Data Subject’s Rights”.

We will only process your personal data in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws. For the purpose of UK and European Union (“EU”) data protection legislation, the data controller is Nitro Software, Inc. of 150 Spear St STE 1500, San Francisco CA 94105.

We need certain personal data in order to provide you with access to the Services. If you created a profile, registered an account, downloaded software or provided information to us, you will have been asked to explicitly consent to our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy in order to access our Services, purchase our products and/or view our content. This consent provides us with the legal basis we require under applicable law to process your data. If you do not agree to our use of your personal data in line with this Policy, please do not use our Services.


We may update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes to our data practices. If we make any material changes, we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest data on our privacy practices. Please note the effective date listed at the beginning of the Privacy Policy. If we make any material change(s) to the Privacy Policy, we will post a notice on our Site prior to such changes(s) taking effect.

If you disagree with any changes to the Privacy Policy and do not wish to be subject to the revised Privacy Policy, you need to deactivate your account and stop using Nitro services.

Data Collected

Personal Data:

We collect information about you in a range of forms, including personal data. As used in this Privacy Policy, “personal data” is as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation EU 2016/679 and any successor legislation, this includes any information which, either alone or in combination with other information we hold about you, identifies you as an individual, including, for example, your name, email address and telephone number.

Nitro collects personal data from users to provide services. Throughout standard use of the Site or Services, we collect some or all of the following:

  • Account Data: Name, business name, title, phone number, billing address, email, password, and avatar
  • Financial Data: Credit card data (number, expiration, and security code)
  • Single Sign-On: Nitro supports enterprise SSO with SAML 2.0-enabled identity providers. If your users log in through enterprise SSO, we collect data from the SAML provider regarding your account (with your express consent)

Sensitive Data

Nitro does not require or use sensitive data like: racial or ethnic origin, political affiliation or opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health data, sexual orientation, criminal convictions, or genetic or biometric data. Subject to the following paragraph, we ask that you not send us, and/or disclose, any such sensitive personal data.

If you send or disclose any sensitive personal data to us when you submit user generated content to our Services, you consent to our processing and use of such sensitive personal data in accordance with this Policy. If you do not consent to our processing and use of such sensitive personal data, you must not submit such user generated content to our Services.

Document Data

The Sites, Software, and Services provide capabilities to users to upload and manipulate documents. The user is responsible for and owns the content of the documents. Nitro does not alter the content of documents. By content, we are referring to text, graphics, and/or images within the document that are human readable and convey the meaning of the document to a person reading it. Occasionally, we will have to alter the formatting of the document to show it on the Sites (i.e. on Mobile devices) or in the Software, but there will be no material change to the content within the document.

You are responsible for who you choose to share documents with via the Site, Software, and/or Services’ collaboration functionality. When collaborating on documents, users you grant access to will be able to view that content and download the document (even if you delete that document at a later date). Additionally, if a collaborator signs, reviews, or marks-up the document, that collaborator owns a different version of that document which contains the collaborator's changes. If you access or collaborate on a document owned by another individual, you are responsible for the content you provide on or about the document. Also, by sharing documents with other parties, those parties own a version of the document which mean they may then share and retain the document even after the original owner deletes the document.

When storing documents on the Sites, Software, and Services, Nitro collects the following data:

  • Document Metadata: Name, size, email address of user uploading document, meta data about the structure of the document, and standard metadata provided by the standard used to create the document (PDF, DOC, XLS, etc.).

  • Document Content: The contents of documents stored in the Site, Software, or Services.

User Generated Content

Please note that any information you post or disclose on our Site will become public information, and will be available to other users of our Site and to the general public. We urge you to be very careful when deciding to disclose your personal data, or any other information, on our Site. Such personal data and other information will not be private or confidential once it is published on our Site.

Use of Data

For the types of processing that are needed to provide the Services, we rely on the necessity of our processing of your information for the performance of the Services (governed by the Terms of Service) as a legal ground to collect and use your data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. For all other types of processing carried out under this Privacy Policy, we rely on our legitimate interests as a legal ground to collect and use your data in such ways.

What are cookies?

We may collect information using “cookies”. Cookies are small data files stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Services.

We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which are used only by us to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Services; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers on our Services, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.

Cookies we use

Our Services uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

Type of cookie Purpose
Essential Cookies

These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Services and to enable you to use some of its features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our Services and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use our Services, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our Services which you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Services.

Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users use our Services. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It includes the number of visitors to our Services, the websites that referred them to our Services, the pages that they visited on our Services, what time of day they visited our Services, whether they have visited our Services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Services.

We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. It is only used to improve how our Services works. You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here:

Targeted and advertising cookies

These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising which is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, third party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show adverts which we think will be relevant to your interests while you are on third party websites.

You can disable cookies which remember your browsing habits and target advertising at you by visiting If you choose to remove targeted or advertising cookies, you will still see adverts but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to remove cookies by the companies listed at the above link, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, and so you may still receive some cookies and tailored adverts from companies that are not listed.

Social Media Cookies

These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our Services or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+.

If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Services. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device and you may need to log in every time you visit our Services.

Pixel Tags

We may also use pixel tags (which are also known as web beacons and clear GIFs) on our Services to track the actions of users on our Services. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages. Pixel tags measure the success of our marketing campaigns and compile statistics about usage of the Services, so that we can manage our content more effectively. The information we collect using pixel tags is not linked to our users’ personal data.


Generally. We may use other companies to serve third-party advertisements when you visit and use the Services. These companies may collect and use click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over during your visits to the Services and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies typically use tracking technologies to collect this information. Other companies' use of their tracking technologies is subject to their own privacy policies.

Targeted Advertising. In order to serve offers and advertisements that may interest you, we may display targeted advertisements on the Services, or other digital properties or applications in conjunction with our content based on information provided to us by our users and information provided to us by third parties that they have independently collected. We do not provide personal data to advertisers when you interact with an advertisement.

Your Ad Choices. Some of the third-party service providers and/or Advertisers may be members of the Network European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance ("EDAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more, visit which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the "opt-out" procedures of EDAA members.

Mobile. We may, from time to time, offer certain location or pinpoint based services, such as location assisted navigation instruction. If you elect to use such location-based services, we must periodically receive your location in order to provide such location-based services to you. By using the location-based services, you authorize us to: (i) locate your hardware; (ii) record, compile and display your location; and (iii) publish your location to third parties designated by you by means of location publication controls available within the applications (for example, settings, user preferences). As part of the location-based services, we may also collect and store certain information about the users who elect to use such location-based services, such as a device ID. This information will be used to provide you the location-based services. We may use third-party providers to help provide location-based services through mobile systems and we may give the information to such providers to enable them to provide their location-based services, provided that such providers use the information in accordance with this Policy.

International Data Transfer

Your information, including personal data that we collect from you, may be processed and transferred within and to the United States and other countries and territories which may have different privacy laws from your country of residence. Nitro is compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Nitro adheres to the principles of the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks, although Nitro does not rely on the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as a legal basis for transfers of personal data in light of the judgment of the Court of Justice of the EU in Case C-311/18. Nor do we rely on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework in light of the policy paper of the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner of September 8, 2020. To learn more, visit the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website.

Nitro takes data privacy seriously and monitors the regulatory landscape with regards to data privacy. As new regulations evolve, Nitro will evaluate those regulations and, in good faith, evolve our Data Privacy procedures appropriately.

Sharing and Disclosure

We will share or sell your personal data with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your personal data to third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy (see the "Business Transfers" section below).

We may provide your personal data to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities, such as shipping your order or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal data only as necessary to provide these services to us. We may disclose personal data when the disclosure:

  • is required by law; or
  • has been consented to by you.

Other ways Nitro shares personal data are:

  • Collaboration and Sharing: Nitro offers collaboration features built into the Site and Services which allow you to share documents (read-only or full edit capabilities) with others you explicitly choose. Collaboration and sharing allows others to view the content of the document you choose to share in addition to the activity data pertaining to the shared document (views, edits, etc.). You can set permissions and revoke access through your Nitro account. If you share a document with another party, that party can download the document as long as they have access to it. Additionally, you may choose to create a public link and send that link to others. If you create a public link, anyone with that link can access in read-only mode and download it.
