PowerDMS Privacy Policy

Last Updated: July 15, 2019

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to learn how we collect, use, share and otherwise process information relating to individuals (“Personal Data”), and to learn about your rights and choices regarding the processing of your Personal Data. References to “PowerDMS”, “we”, or “us” is a reference to PowerDMS, Inc.

When does this Privacy Policy Apply?

This Privacy Policy applies when PowerDMS is the controller of your Personal Data as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the extent we process Personal Data in the role of a processor on behalf of our customers, including when we offer to our customers various services through which our customers and/or their affiliates collect, use, share or process Personal Data via our services.

For detailed privacy information related to where a PowerDMS customer and/or a customer affiliate who uses the PowerDMS services is the controller, please reach out to the respective customer directly. We are not responsible for the privacy or data security practices of our customers, which may differ from those set forth in this Privacy Policy. Also, please see “Your Rights Relating to Customer Data” below.

What Information do We Collect Directly from You?

We collect information (including Personal Data) from you when you fill out a form on our site, including the “Contact” form, register to use our site, sign up for an event or webinar, or download certain content. In those cases, you may be asked to enter your contact information, which may include your name, title, e-mail address, username, password, phone number, address, your organization name and number of employees. You may, however, visit our site anonymously. In addition, if you register for an event or webinar, it may necessary for you to provide us your billing information, such as billing name, address, credit card or bank account information. If you attend one of our in-person events (such as the Entrust Conference), we may, without requesting additional consent, scan your attendee badge, which will provide us your information such as your name, title, company name, address, phone number and email address. If you visit our offices, you may be required to register as a visitor and provide your name, title, email address, phone number, organization name, time and date of arrival and information about the party you are visiting.

What Device and Use Data do We Process?

In addition, we gather certain information automatically as part of your use of our services. This information may include IP address (or proxy server), device and application identification numbers, location, browser type, Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files viewed, searches and other actions you take, usage data and error logs for your login sessions so that our services can ‘talk’ to your device while you are logged in, operating system and system configuration information and date/time stamps associated with your usage. If you use certain features of our services on a mobile device, we may also collect device event information (such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser language), attributes of your device (such as model, type, language, operating system), and location information (through IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may, for example, provide us with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers).

This information is used to maintain the security of the services, to provide necessary functionality, as well as to improve performance of the services, to assess and improve customer and user experience of the services, to review compliance with applicable usage terms and conditions, to identify future opportunities for development of the services, to assess capacity requirements, to identify customer opportunities and for the security of our company in general (in addition to the security of our products and services). Some of the device and usage data collected within the services, whether alone or in conjunction with other data, could be personally identifying to you. Please note that this device and usage data is primarily used for the purposes of identifying the uniqueness of each user logging on (as opposed to specific individuals), apart from where it is strictly required to identify an individual for security purposes or as required as part of our provision of the services to our customers (where we act as a processor).

In addition, if you use and interact with our website and/or engage in email exchanges with us, we may automatically collect information about your device and your usage of our websites or emails through cookies and similar technologies, as described further on our Cookie Policy Page.

If your data has been submitted to us by or on behalf of a PowerDMS customer, and you wish to exercise any rights you may have under applicable data protection laws, please inquire with the applicable customer directly. Because we may only access a customer’s data upon instruction from that customer, if you wish to make your request directly to us, please provide to us the name of the PowerDMS customer who submitted your data to us. We will refer your request to that customer and will support them as needed in responding to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
