All such information (“Customer Data”) is owned and controlled by our Customers, who are the data controllers for such information with respect to EU data protection law or other applicable laws. Customer Data may include information from the end points and other systems, tools or devices that Customers manage or monitor using our Services, and end user data related to individuals activities on Customer’s network and systems. It may also include event logs, end user information (such as IP address, email address and computer name), and other data where relevant to a support or service request. We process Customer Data on the basis of instructions from our Customers.

Information Gathering Tools.

 

 

We use commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information as you navigate our Website (“Information Gathering Tools”). This section describes the types of Information Gathering Tools used on our Website and how this information may be used.

 

Cookies. We use cookies to make interactions with the Website easy and meaningful. When you visit the Website, our servers send a cookie to your computer. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your Web browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to us, either by responding to a promotional offer, opening an account, or filling out a Web form, you remain anonymous to us.

 

We use cookies that are session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer. Please note that if you disable your Web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to navigate our Website, but some features of the Services may not work.

 

 

Web Beacons. We use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and visitors’ usage of the Website and interactions with emails from us. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Web site tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, we may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to our Website. We use Web beacons to operate and improve the Website and email communications.

 

 

IP Addresses. When you visit the Website, we collect your Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, we use IP addresses to monitor the regions from which customers navigate the Website. We also collect IP addresses from Customers when they log into the Services.

 

 

Information collected by cookies and similar technologies are treated as non-personal information except to the extent under local law that IP addresses (or like identifiers) are otherwise considered Personal Information.

 

 

How We Use the Information Collected

We use your personal data to:

 

  • Deliver Services and support;
  • Send communications to you, such as service information, account summaries, promotional offers, and surveys;
  • Customize, analyze, and improve our services and communication with you;
  • Contact you as you have requested related to your services, employment application, or other inquiry;
  • Protect the security or integrity of the Website, our business, or our products or services; or
  • Otherwise, as disclosed to you at the point of collection.
  • In support of the above uses, we may combine the personally identifiable information you have provided to us on the Website with other information about you that is available to us, including Website usage information and information from other sources.

 

For individuals in the European Union, our processing (i.e., use) of your personal data is justified on the following legal bases:

 

  • Performance of Contract: the processing is necessary to perform a contract with you or take steps to enter into a contract at your request;
  • Compliance with Law: the processing is necessary for us to comply with a relevant legal obligation (for example, laws which require us to collect tax information from customers, carry out checks on customers, or which compel us to disclose information to public authorities or regulators);
  • Our Legitimate Interests: the processing is in our legitimate interests, subject to your interests and fundamental rights, and notably our legitimate interest in using applicable data to conduct and develop our business activities, such as developing and maintaining relationships with our customers (the majority of the processing covered by this notice is legitimate interest based);
  • Defend Our Rights: where the processing is necessary to the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
  • With Your Consent: you have consented to the processing (for example, where we are required by local law to rely upon your prior consent for the purposes of direct marketing).

 

 

Sharing of Information Collected

Service Providers and Partners. We may share your information with our contracted service providers and partners so that these service providers can provide services on our behalf. Unless described in this Privacy Policy, we do not share, sell, rent, or trade any information with third parties for their promotional purposes. For EU data, such processing is in our legitimate interest in ensuring that you may receive the Services you request from us. We contractually require agents, service providers, and affiliates who may process personal data related to the Services to provide the same level of protections for personal data as we use.

 

 

To Affiliates. To facilitate our global operations, in order to help us improve the content of the Website and to provide you with the products or services requested, we may transfer the collected information to our affiliates worldwide.

 

 

Business Transfers: If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of company assets, or transition of service to another provider, your personal data and other information may be transferred to a successor or affiliate as part of that transaction along with other assets.

 

 

Law Enforcement or National Security. In accordance with our legal obligations, we may also transfer Customer Data, subject to a lawful request, to public authorities for law enforcement or national security purposes.

 

 

International Transfer of Information Collected. To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer and process your data from around the world, including the United States. By accessing or using the Services or otherwise providing information to us, you consent to the processing and transfer of information in and to the U.S. and other countries and territories, which may have different privacy laws from your country of residence. This Privacy Policy shall apply even if we transfer data to other countries. If we transfer Personal Data about you outside of the European Economic Area (except if an Adequate Country), we shall in advance of any such transfer ensure that a legal mechanism to achieve adequacy in respect of that processing is in place, such as the requirement for execution of Standard Contractual Sections as further described in our Data Processing Addendum located at Sharepoint/Centerity-US/Documents/GDPR.

 

 

Your Choices, Access and Update Your Information

 

Where lawful to do so, and subject to your consent where required, we may communicate with Customers (and related business contacts) about our Services.
