PERAMSONS PRIVACY STATEMENT

Your privacy is important to us. This privacy statement explains the personal data Peramsons processes, how Peramsons processes it, and for what purposes.

Peramsons offers a wide range of products, including server products used to help operate enterprises worldwide, devices you use in your home, software that students use at school, and services developers use to create and host what’s next. References to Peramsons products in this statement include Peramsons services, websites, apps, software, servers, and devices.

Please read the product-specific details in this privacy statement, which provide additional relevant information. This statement applies to the interactions Peramsons has with you and the Peramsons products listed below, as well as other Peramsons products that display this statement.


Personal data we collect

Peramsons collects data from you, through our interactions with you and through our products. You provide some of this data directly, and we get some of it by collecting data about your interactions, use, and experiences with our products. The data we collect depends on the context of your interactions with Peramsons and the choices you make, including your privacy settings and the products and features you use. We also obtain data about you from third parties.

If you represent an organization, such as a business or school, that utilizes Enterprise and Developer Products from Peramsons, please see the Enterprise and developer products section of this privacy statement to learn how we process your data.

You have choices when it comes to the technology you use and the data you share. When we ask you to provide personal data, you can decline. Many of our products require some personal data to provide you with a service. If you choose not to provide data necessary to provide you with a product or feature, you cannot use that product or feature. Likewise, where we need to collect personal data by law or to enter into or carry out a contract with you, and you do not provide the data, we will not be able to enter into the contract; or if this relates to an existing product you’re using, we may have to suspend or cancel it. We will notify you if this is the case at the time. Where providing the data is optional, and you choose not to share personal data, features like personalization that use such data will not work for you.


How we use personal data

Peramsons uses the data we collect to provide you with rich, interactive experiences. In particular, we use data to:

  • Provide our products, which includes updating, securing, and troubleshooting, as well as providing support. It also includes sharing data, when it is required to provide the service or carry out the transactions you request.
  • Improve and develop our products.
  • Personalize our products and make recommendations.
  • Advertise and market to you, which includes sending promotional communications, targeting advertising, and presenting you with relevant offers.

We also use the data to operate our business, which includes analyzing our performance, meeting our legal obligations, developing our workforce, and doing research.

In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect from different contexts (for example, from your use of two Peramsons products) or obtain from third parties to give you a more seamless, consistent, and personalized experience, to make informed business decisions, and for other legitimate purposes.


Reasons we share personal data

We share your personal data with your consent or to complete any transaction or provide any product you have requested or authorized. We also share data with Peramsons-controlled affiliates and subsidiaries; with vendors working on our behalf; when required by law or to respond to legal process; to protect our customers; to protect lives; to maintain the security of our products; and to protect the rights and property of Peramsons and its customers.


How to access and control your personal data

You can also make choices about the collection and use of your data by Peramsons. You can control your personal data that Peramsons has obtained, and exercise your data protection rights, by contacting Peramsons or using various tools we provide. In some cases, your ability to access or control your personal data will be limited, as required or permitted by applicable law. How you can access or control your personal data will also depend on which products you use. For example, you can:

  • Control the use of your data for interest-based advertising from Peramsons by visiting our opt-out page.
  • Choose whether you wish to receive promotional emails, SMS messages, telephone calls, and postal mail from Peramsons.
  • Access and clear some of your data through the Peramsons privacy dashboard.

Not all personal data processed by Peramsons can be accessed or controlled via the tools above. If you want to access or control personal data processed by Peramsons that is not available via the tools above or directly through the Peramsons products you use, you can always contact Peramsons at the address in the How to contact us section or by using our web form.


Cookies and similar technologies

Cookies are small text files placed on your device to store data that can be recalled by a web server in the domain that placed the cookie. We use cookies and similar technologies for storing and honoring your preferences and settings, enabling you to sign in, providing interest-based advertising, combating fraud, analyzing how our products perform, and fulfilling other legitimate purposes. Peramsons apps use additional identifiers, such as the advertising ID in Windows described in the Advertising ID section of this privacy statement, for similar purposes.

We also use “web beacons” to help deliver cookies and gather usage and performance data. Our websites may include web beacons, cookies, or similar technologies from third-party service providers.

You have a variety of tools to control the data collected by cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies. For example, you can use controls in your internet browser to limit how the websites you visit are able to use cookies and to withdraw your consent by clearing or blocking cookies.


Products provided by your organization—notice to end users

If you use an email address to access Peramsons products and that email address was provided by an organization you are affiliated with, such as an employer or school, that organization can:

  • Control and administer your Peramsons product account.
  • Access and process your data, including the contents of your communications and files, associated with your Peramsons product accounts.

If you lose access to your work or school account (in event of change of employment, for example), you may lose access to products and the content associated with those products, including those you acquired on your own behalf, if you used your work or school account to sign in to such products.

Many Peramsons products are intended for use by organizations, such as schools and businesses. Please see the Enterprise and developer products section of this privacy statement. If your organization provides you with access to Peramsons products, your use of the Peramsons products is subject to your organization's policies, if any. You should direct your privacy inquiries, including any requests to exercise your data protection rights, to your organization’s administrator. When you use social features in Peramsons products, other users in your network may see some of your activity. To learn more about the social features and other functionality, please review documentation or help content specific to the Peramsons product. Peramsons is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of our customers, which may differ from those set forth in this privacy statement.
