Personal Data We Collect

We may obtain personal data about you from various sources, whether online through the Website or offline.

(A) Personal Data We Collect Online

We will process personal data which you provide to us, including if you decide to engage in certain activities on the Website, such as ordering or registering products or services, downloading software, registering for events, marketing or promotional activities, accessing certain sections of the Website, white papers and other materials, subscribing to newsletters or press distribution lists, participating in online surveys, webinars, discussion groups, forums or live chats, or entering contests.

The personal data we collect online about you may include:

  • Your contact details (such as your name, address, phone number and email 
 address);
  • Your title;
  • Your company;
  • Your job title; and
  • Other applicable details that you may submit to us.

The more you tell us about yourself, the more value we can offer you. Supplying personal data is entirely voluntary except where personal data is required to provide you with products or services or as otherwise provided for in this Privacy Policy. If you choose not to supply the personal data we may be unable to provide you with the products and services that you requested, or provide you with access to certain sections or functionalities of the Website that we make available to our registered users. Of course, if you want to remain anonymous, you are still free to take advantage of the publicly available content on the Website without registration.

(B) Certain Personal Data We May Collect Offline

In addition to the personal data described above, we also may collect personal data provided to us offline in a variety of ways.

For instance, we may collect contact details of prospective customers or other persons at events such as trade shows (e.g., by collecting their business cards).

We may also collect information from customers (“Customers“) in connection with rendering support, consulting and professional services to them (“Services“). Such information (collectively “Customer Data“), may include personal data about individuals within the Customer’s organization (e.g., a Customer’s contact details). However, to the extent the information stored by Customers contains personal data of third party individuals, we may also be exposed to, and process, such personal data. We use Customer Data solely as described below.

We also may process the personal data we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.

In addition, subject to your ability to object as described below, we may use personal data collected on the Website to build user profiles. In particular, if you decide to fill out a web form or click on a traceable link, we may associate your browsing activity on the Website with your profile, which can include your name, email address and company name. We may use such profiles for various purposes, including advertising, market research, sales, and Website design. If you wish that your personal data is not used in such a manner, please send an email to info@datacore.com.

(B) Personal Data Collected Offline

We use personal data collected offline in accordance with the following principles:

  • We use personal data collected from a Customer for no other purpose but 
 providing the Services to such Customer. We may also use anonymous 
 data, such as any technical information or feedback regarding its products 
 and related issues obtained from Customers in connection with the 
 performance of Services, for our internal business purposes, including for 
 the purpose of updating, modifying, enhancing and/or marketing and 
 selling our products or services.
  • We may, within or (subject to obtaining consent or ensuring adequate 
 protection as set out below) across national boundaries, share personal 
 data with authorized contractors. However, we will only provide 
 contractors with the minimum amount of personal data necessary to 
 provide the Services on DataCore’s behalf.
  • DataCore’s contractors are not permitted to use personal data except for 
 the limited purpose of completing the requested Services and we have 
 taken steps to ensure that each contractor shall ensure your personal data
 is kept secure.

In relation to other personal data collected offline, we may use such personal data for those purposes (as applicable) for which we may use personal data collected online and for all other lawful purposes.

Personal Data We Share

We do not disclose personal data about you except as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may share personal data within or across national boundaries with our affiliates, distributors, resellers and other trusted business affiliates, who may use that data for purposes including sending you relevant marketing and other communications regarding our products and services. We may also share your personal data with vendors and third party service providers who assist us with the operation of the Website, as well as our sales and services. We will always take appropriate steps to ensure that any third party with which we share your personal data will keep your personal data secure. We will only transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area where we have received your consent to do so or where there are adequate measures in place to ensure your personal data is kept secure at all times.

We may disclose personal data when required by law or under the good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to conform to applicable law, comply with legal process served on DataCore, or to protect the property or interests of DataCore, its agents and employees, personal safety, or the public. Under such circumstances we may be prohibited by law, court order or other legal process from providing notice of the disclosure and we reserve the right to not provide such notice in our sole discretion.

As our business evolves, we may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our assets, including personal data in connection with a merger, reorganization, or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such an event, the information collected about you, whether personal data or anonymous data, may be one of the assets transferred.

Customer Data that Does Not Constitute Personal Data

Unless we expressly inform you otherwise, we will also collect, use and share Customer Data that does not constitute personal data in accordance with the same standards set out in this Privacy Policy for personal data.

Marketing Communications

Although most Customers and partners appreciate receiving notices from us, we appreciate the importance of providing you with choices. You may request to “Unsubscribe” at any time after receiving a marketing communication from us. All marketing communications that you receive from DataCore will instruct you how to decline further marketing communications from us.
