Your privacy is important to Diaspark, Inc. and our subsidiaries and affiliates (“Diaspark,” “Publisher,” “us,” “our,” or “we”). We respect your preferences concerning the treatment of any Personal Information that we may collect. This policy explains how we collect and use your Personal Information, how you can control its use, and it describes our practices regarding information collected from Diaspark sites and software applications that refer to this policy (collectively, the “Content”). We follow typically accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
- A User’s Personal Information, as well as information relating to a User’s navigation, are collected, processed, and used; and
- The User can control how his or her information is used.
The head of the collection of Personal Information is Diaspark, 515 Plainfield Ave, Suite #1, Edison, NJ 08817.
Use of the Site and software applications associated with the Site (collectively, the “Services”) is pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Policy.
What Information We Collect
Through your interaction with and use of the Content, Diaspark may collect personal information, which is information that identifies an individual or relates to an identifiable individual. Personal information allows identification directly or indirectly (e.g., by cross-checking information) of the User as a physical person. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to:
- your name
- physical address
- telephone number
- e-mail address
- company affiliation
- professional role
Diaspark may also collect other information through your interaction with and use of the Content, which does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual (“Other Information”). Other Information may include, but is not limited to:
- data collected through electronic interactions
- navigation on the Site
- browser and device information
- application usage data
- demographic information
- geographic or geo-location information
- and statistical and aggregated information
Statistical or aggregated information does not directly identify a specific person, but it may be derived from Personal Information. We may also combine Other Information with Personal Information, in which case we will treat the combined information as Personal Information. Likewise, information regarding navigation does not reveal the identity of the User, but it allows the Publisher to learn more about the User’s behavior regarding the use of the Services (e.g., geolocation, navigation history on the software applications, etc.). This, too, when associated with the collection of Personal Information, is treated as Personal Information.
How We Share and Use Your Information
Diaspark uses Personal Information to operate and improve Content, to fulfill your requests for information, to register your products, to provide service and support, to engage in and process transactions that you have requested, to obtain third-party services, and to comply with legal requirements and corporate transactions. Diaspark may provide you with promotional materials, allow you to participate in contests and surveys, tailor marketing to your needs, and send newsletters, solicitations (e.g., participation in surveys), and informational messages (e.g., information on new products and upcoming demonstrations and trainings). These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making websites or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information, by performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and solutions, and for displaying content and advertising that are customized to your interests and preferences.
We also use your Personal Information to communicate with you. We may send certain mandatory service communications such as welcome letters, billing reminders, information on technical service issues, and support announcements. Some Diaspark services may send periodic letters that are considered part of the service. We may also contact you to inform you of products or services available from Diaspark.
Existing Personal Information stored in the Diaspark database may be processed on the basis of legitimate interest.
You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. If you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us in writing at: [email protected]
We will inform you of the implications of withdrawing consent.
We may use, transfer, and disclose Other Information that we collect for any purpose, except where applicable law requires otherwise. If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, then we will only use it in the same way that we are permitted to use and disclose Personal Information.
How We Collect Information
Diaspark and our third party service providers may collect both Personal Information and Other Information from a variety of sources that generally fall into two categories:
- Publicly Available Data/Data from Third Parties:
- data that you may have made publicly available, such as from personal social networks
- data from partners in accordance with the contractual terms binding the publishers of those sites
- data provided by third-party sources, such as marketing opt-in lists, or data aggregators
- Direct Interactions: Data obtained from your use of and/or interaction with us through the Content and other activities, such as:
- account creation
- subscription plan changes
- sales inquiries and transactions
Diaspark retains your Personal Information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, as well as to comply with applicable laws. Your consent to such purpose(s) remains valid after termination of our relationship with you. Personal User data is deleted when retention periods expire.
Nevertheless, the personal User data will be archived beyond the durations provided, for the purposes of research or for the finding and prosecution of criminal offenses, for the sole purpose of allowing, as needed, the provision of such data to the appropriate authorities. Archiving implies that the personal User data will not be searchable in line, but will be anonymized and kept on an autonomous and secure support.
