"Personal information" means information about an identifiable individual. This information may include (without limitation) your name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, passport number and birth date.
Personal information does not include any business contact information that is solely used to communicate with you in relation to your employment, business, or profession, such as your name, position or title, work address, work telephone number, work fax number or work email address.
Personal information also does not include information that has been anonymized or aggregated in such a way that there is no serious possibility it can be used to identify an individual, whether on its own or in combination with other information.

We collect, use, and disclose your personal information with your consent or as permitted or required by applicable law. How we obtain your consent (i.e., the form we use) will depend on the circumstances, as well as the sensitivity of the information collected. Subject to applicable laws, your consent may be express or implied depending on the circumstances and the sensitivity of the personal information in question.

However, before we implement the withdrawal of consent, we may require proof of your identity.

We disclose personal information in Customer Data only as a data processor for our customer, and we make no disclosure of that personal information other than to provide the Services to our customer or as otherwise expressly permitted in our contract with our customer.
We may use, share, and disclose other information (including personal information) about you in the following limited circumstances:
Third party vendors, consultants, and other service providers: We may share your information with third party vendors, consultants, and other service providers who we employ to perform a variety of services on our behalf. These third parties include (for example) our payment processing providers, hosting, data storage and processing service providers, website analytics companies, product feedback or helpdesk software providers, CRM service providers, email service providers, and others.
If we provide your information to third party vendors, consultants, and other service providers, then we require that these third parties maintain the confidentiality of your personal information and keep your personal information secure. We also require that they only use your personal information for the limited purposes for which it is provided. When such third parties no longer need your personal information for those limited purposes, we require that they dispose of the personal information. In some circumstances, we may permit these third parties to retain aggregated, anonymized, or statistical information that does not identify you. We do not authorize these third parties to disclose your personal information to unauthorized parties or to use your personal information for their direct marketing purposes. If you would like more information about our third-party vendors, consultants, and other service providers, please contact us using the contact information in the “Contact information” section below.

Security: We use appropriate technical, organizational, and administrative security measures to protect information that we hold in our records from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We have implemented physical, organizational, contractual, and technological security measures with a view to protecting your personal information and other information from loss or theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. We have taken steps to ensure that the only personnel who are granted access to your personal information are those with a business ‘need-to-know’ or whose duties reasonably require such information. Despite the measures outlined above, no method of information transmission or information storage is 100% secure or error-free, so we unfortunately cannot guarantee absolute security. If you have reason to believe that your interactions with us or through the Website or Services are no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any information that you provided to us, the Website or the Services has been compromised), please contact us immediately using the contact information in the “Contact information” section below.

10. Additional information for individuals subject to the GDPR
Under the GDPR, personal data is defined as:
“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”
Data Controller and Data Processor
Under the GDPR, a ‘data controller’ is a person which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data, and a ‘data processor’ is a person who processes personal data on behalf of a data controller.
For the personal data in Customer Data, we are a data processor processing that personal data on behalf of our customer, which is the data controller of that personal data.
We are the data controller for other personal data we collect, including personal data collected by us in relation to our Websites and Events, and personal data collected from users of the Services.
Processing the personal data in Customer Data, and processing some personal data obtained from users of the Services, is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligation to provide the Services to our customers. We may also process this personal data obtained for the purpose of incidental legitimate interests we have, such as preventing fraud, ensuring network and information security, and to establish, exercise or defend our legal claims and rights.
We may use other personal information for marketing and promotional purposes, such as to send you news and newsletters, or to otherwise contact you about products or information we think may interest you. We may also use it to improve our Services, to develop new Services, and to determine how to market our Services. It is in our legitimate interest to use your personal data for these purposes, to develop and grow our business and expand our Services, and to promote the reputation of our organization. We will, where required by law, obtain your consent to send such communications.
We use personal information to better understand how you and others use our Services, so that we can improve our Websites and Services, develop new features, tools, offerings, services, and the like, and for other research and analytical purposes. We also use the information we collect to measure the effectiveness of our online content and how visitors use our Websites and our Services. This allows us to learn what pages of our Websites are most attractive to our visitors, which parts of our Websites are the most interesting, and what kind of offers our Website visitors like to see. We may use this information and the insights we have derived for marketing purposes (see above), or to make decisions about events, news and information that may be of interest to customers, prospective customers, Website users and others. It is in our legitimate interest to use your personal data in such a way to ensure that we provide the very best Services to our customers and others to grow our business and Services and promote the reputation of our organization.
