What personal data does Securence collect?

In general, you can visit Securence on the Internet without telling us who you are or giving any personal information about yourself. However, when you inquire about, order, evaluate or start using our products or services or register for virus information alerts, you may be required to provide personal data such as your name, company position, address, telephone number, mobile number, fax number, email address, credit card details and age. If you forward information to us electronically or as a hard copy, we will collect that information and use it for the purposes for which you have provided it. We will never collect sensitive information about you without your explicit consent.

Every time you connect to the Site, we store a log of your visit that shows the unique number your machine uses when it is connected to the Internet – its IP address. This tells us what your machine has looked at, whether the page request was successful or not and which browser your machine used to view the pages. The use of this data is primarily for statistical purposes. This helps us to understand which areas of the Site are of particular interest and also which pages are not being requested. It also tells how many people are visiting the Site in total. We may attempt to contact you through these details if necessary, including, without limitation, when you are using the wrong paths to access the Site or are breaching restrictions on the use of the Site. We may also use this information to block IP addresses where there is a breach of the Terms and Conditions for use of the Site.

Cookies

Some Securence pages use cookies so that we can better serve you when you return to the Site. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the onsite experience. Cookies are in no way linked to any personally identifiable information. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use the Site, although some areas may be functionally limited.

Most internet browsers allow the use of cookies to be enabled or disabled. For specific instructions to enable or disable cookies on your computer, please refer to the documentation for your browser software.

How does Securence use my personal data?

We use your personal data to provide goods and services to you, to provide you with virus information alerts and to let you know about other goods and services in which you may be interested, including alerting you to product upgrades, updates and renewal information. Personal information may also be collected for the purposes of improving our website content, providing goods and services, marketing, as part of our customer satisfaction surveys or for market research or other ancillary purposes.

If you are making a job application or inquiry, you may provide us with a copy of your resume or other relevant information. We may use this information throughout Securence for the purpose of considering your application or inquiry. Except when you explicitly request otherwise, we may keep this information on file for future reference.

We may also use your personal data to carry out research that will enable us to better understand our users’ demographics, interests and behavior. This research is compiled and analyzed on an aggregated basis, without identifying any user individually.

Partners of Securence may visit a specially allocated website. We may use information provided on that site to administer and develop our business relationship including the sharing of certain information (where permitted to do so) with associate companies other business partners, customers or prospects.

As a global company, we have international sites and users all over the world. When you give us personal data, that data may be sent electronically to servers anywhere in the world and may be used, stored and processed anywhere in the world. Whenever and wherever we collect, process or use personal data, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely and in accordance with our privacy policy.

With whom might we share your personal data?

We may pass your personal data to our associated companies or to our authorized resellers, partners and resellers, to provide you with the goods and services that you requested.

All emails sent to you by Securence will follow the email guidelines described above. In keeping with these guidelines, if you have requested not to receive email communication from Securence, we may also share your contact information with third parties to ensure you also do not receive email communication from them on behalf of Securence.

We may also provide your personal data to companies outside our group, associated companies, and our partners or authorized resellers to provide you with information about other products or services.

Except as set out above, we will not disclose your personal information except where we are obliged to do so or allowed to do so by law, or where we need to do so in order to run our business (for instance where we outsource services or other people process data for us). If you do not wish us to pass your information to any other companies, please let us know by sending an email to us at support@securence.com.

Security

We endeavor to hold all personal information securely in accordance with our internal security procedures and U.S. law.
