Entrust Datacard Corporation and its subsidiaries (“EDC”, “us” “we”, “our”) value our relationship with our customers and other users of our web sites (“Sites”), cloud services, applications, products (“Products”) and related technical (or other) services (“Services”). We are concerned about privacy and the security of personal data and we recognize that you may be concerned about our collection, storage, use, and disclosure of Personal Information we collect in the course of our business interactions with you. This information includes the information we may collect through your use of our Sites, Products, and Services. Accordingly, we have implemented this Privacy Statement to inform you of the Personal Information that we collect, how we collect this information, and what we do with it after we collect it.

For purposes of this Privacy Statement, “Personal Information” is information that identifies you personally, either alone or in combination with other information available to us. Examples of Personal Information include your name, contact details, credit card information, information you provide when you create an account with us on one of our Sites, or when you use our Products or Services.

This Privacy Policy describes the collection, use, disclosure, and transfer of your Personal Information as through use of the Sites, Products or Services.

What Personal Information do we Collect?

Information you provide to us:

When you use the Sites: We collect the Personal Information you provide to us when you visit our Sites. For example, when you complete a contact form in one of our Sites, we collect the information you include in such form (name, phone number, email address, etc.).

When you use or purchase Products or Services: We collect Personal Information provided directly to us in the course of a business transaction. This information may include your name, phone number, email address, postal address, job title, place of work, and transactional information in connection with the Product or Service.

We collect similar information when you contact us directly via email or telephone, or during any business related events, trade shows, sales or marketing activities hosted by us or by third parties.

From time to time, we may supplement the information you give us with information from other sources, such as information validating your address, information based on your zip code or location, or information about your business. We may also supplement the information you give us with information we collect from you through other Sites or other channels. For example, if you are an EDC customer, we may supplement the information you provide online with information you provide in your other business dealings with us.

Information we automatically collect:

When you visit our Sites, we collect certain information related to your visit that is sent to us by your Web browser or Product. This information typically includes your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. Certain privacy and data protection laws may consider this information as Personal Information.

  • Cookies and other Tracking Technologies. Like the operators of most web sites, we may use analytic and reporting technologies to gather information such as Internet domain and host names, browser software and operating system types, clickstream patterns, and the dates and times that the Sites, Products and Services are accessed. For more details about how we use these technologies, please see our Cookie Policy.
  • Product Data and License Validation. Like most software providers and operators of cloud services, when our Products are used, we collect information relating to the access, usage, performance of our Products, including data generated in connection with your use of the Products (e.g., analytics data, statistics data and performance data) (“Product Data”). Certain privacy and data protection laws may consider Product Data as Personal Information. We also collect any Personal Information required to validate Product licenses.
  • Logging. When our Sites, Products and Services are used, we may automatically log and collect certain information in electronic records (“Logs”). This may include who (e.g. name, user name) accessed the Sites, Products and Services, how the Sites, Products and Services were accessed, the dates and times Sites, Products and Services were accessed, the geographic location from which the Sites, Products and Services were accessed and results of the request. Certain privacy and data protection laws may consider Logs as Personal Information. Logs may be retained locally within the Product or may be transmitted to and stored in our infrastructure, which may include our hosted infrastructure.
  • Geolocation Information. We may use geolocation technology together with third- party databases to determine the location of the computing device accessing Sites, Products, or Services. This location information allows us and our third-party service providers to provide certain functionality within our Sites, Services and/or Products. This location information will not be shared in a personally identifying form with persons other than you.

Information provided to us by third parties.

In the course of our business we receive Personal Information from third parties. This may happen if you attended a meeting or event and, consistently with privacy and data protection laws, the organizers of such meeting or event shared your Personal Information with us. In this case, you will receive a communication from us indicating we received your Personal Information.

How Do We Use The Information We Collect?

Generally, we use the Personal Information we collect in furtherance of our legitimate interests in operating our business, including providing our Sites, Products and Services. More specifically, EDC uses Personal Information:

  • to provide, make available, and/or troubleshoot and maintain the Sites, Products, and Services;

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information

Our legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Information described above will depend on the Personal Information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

However, we will normally collect Personal Information from you only (i) where we need the Personal Information to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, (iii) where we have a legal obligation, or (iv) where we have your consent to do so.

  • Performance of contract (under our terms of service) as a legal basis for processing is when we make any Site, Product or Service available to you or provide you with customer support.
  • We process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests, which include but are not limited to, when we provide you the Site, Product or Service, serve advertisements to you (based on your Personal Information), perform a contract with an organization of whom you are an employee or representative, carry out marketing, keep our Site, Product or Service secure, for engineering purposes, or when we are analyzing users’ behavior across our Site, Product or Service.
  • We process your Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation, such as the prevention of crime or fraud, or to maintain records relating to tax.

If we ask you to provide Personal Information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your Personal Information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your Personal Information).

Do We Share and Disclose Personal Information?

Other Disclosures with consent. We may disclose Personal Information to any other person with your consent to the disclosure.

How Long Do We Retain Personal Information?

How Do We Protect Your Personal Information?

We use appropriate technical, organizational and administrative security measures to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. These security measures are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your Personal Information.

Note that we cannot guarantee that the transmission of data or information (including communications by e-mail) over the Internet or other publicly accessible networks will be 100% secure or that it will not be subject to possible loss, interception or alteration while in transit.

International Data Transfers

Once collected or received, EDC may transfer your Personal Information to countries other than the one in which you live or in which your Personal Information was collected. Specifically, our Site servers are located in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, and our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. Certain privacy and data protection laws require data controllers to put in place safeguards to protect the Personal Information being transferred across borders. To comply with this requirement, EDC has put in place agreements that include the standard contractual clauses recommended by the European Commission to provide adequate safeguards for your Personal Information.

For questions about our safeguards, please contact EDC’s Chief Legal and Compliance Officer at Privacy@entrustdatacard.com.

What rights do you have with respect to your Personal Information?

Subject to the privacy and data protection laws applicable to you, you may have rights in relation to Personal Information we hold about you.

  • Similarly, if we have collected and process your Personal Information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time.
