Location of data collection; data transfer abroad:
Our servers are located within the United States. To the extent that we gather data concerning you from your interactions with our website (including but not limited to our web-based software services), that data will at all times reside in the United States. To the extent that we gather data concerning you from in-person or video interactions with you, such data will be stored in the United States.
We work with the OWI Group, a global group of companies which has databases in different countries, some of which are locally managed. We may transfer your data to one of the OWI Group’s databases outside your country of domicile, in the interest of answering a request better. Where we do so, we ensure that we apply appropriate safeguards (either by transferring data only to recipients in the European Union, to recipients in countries approved by the European Commission, to recipients that are party to the EU-US Privacy Shield, or by using specific contracts approved by the European Commission). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. If you are concerned about the levels of data security in any country outside of the European Union, please let us know and we will endeavor to advise what steps will be taken to protect your data when stored overseas.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
We use your personal data for the following purposes:
- Facilitating your purchase or use of our products and services and managing any aspect of that product or service relationship
- For market research and analysis and developing statistics and content
- For direct marketing communications. We’ll send you marketing by email, phone, post and social media about products and services we think will be of interest to you or your employer
- To provide insight and analysis to help us improve products or services
What are the legal grounds for our processing of your personal information?
We rely on the following bases to use your personal information:
- Where it is needed to provide you with our products and services.
- Where it is in our legitimate interests to do so, such as:
a. Managing your products and services.
b. For direct marketing communications to help us offer you relevant products and services. We will send marketing to you by email, phone, post and social media.
- With your consent for some direct marketing communications.
When/how do we share your personal information?
We do not sell your information to third parties. However, we may from time to time disclose your information to companies or organizations who handle services, such as direct marketing communications, on our behalf. We also share information with the OWI Group. We take steps to ensure that any third-party partners who handle your information comply with data protection legislation and protect your information just as we do. We only disclose personal information that is necessary for them to provide the service that they are undertaking on our behalf.
Our carefully selected partners and service providers may process personal information about you on our behalf as described below:
How long do we retain your information?
The length of time we will store your data will depend on our legal grounds for processing that data.
- Where we use or store your data because it is necessary for the performance of a contract between your employer and us, we will use or store your data for as long as it is necessary to perform that contract.
- Where we use or store your data because it is necessary for us to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject, we will use or store your data for as long as it is necessary to comply with that obligation.
- Where we use or store your data because it is necessary for our legitimate business interests, we will use or store your data until you ask us to stop. However, if we can demonstrate the reason why we are using or storing your data overrides you interests, rights and freedoms, then we will continue to use and store your data for as long as it is necessary for those legitimate interests.
- Where we use or store your data because you have given us your specific, informed and unambiguous consent, we will use or store your data until you ask us to stop.
We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is permitted by applicable law.
Do you have to provide your information to us?
We are unable to provide you or your employer with some of our products and services if you do not provide us with certain information, such as name, company name and email address. In cases where providing personal information is optional, we will make this clear.

- Where we use/store your information because it is necessary for our legitimate business interests, you have the right to object to us using/storing your information. We will stop using/storing your information unless we can demonstrate why we believe we have a legitimate business interest which overrides your interests, rights and freedoms.
