Under the laws of certain jurisdictions, when processing personal data of Authorized Users in connection with the provision of Services to our Customers, we may be deemed a ‘data processor’ while our Customers are deemed ‘data controllers’. Where we are deemed a data processor, Authorized Users should contact our Customer, the data controller, to pursue any such legal data subject rights. We will reasonably cooperate with our Customers to support and comply with any such data subject rights requests
Where we are deemed a data controller under applicable privacy laws of the European Economic Area (EEA) and if you are an individual in EEA, we collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases may depend on the Services you use and how you use them, such as the following:
we need your information to provide you the Services, including to operate the Services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the Services;
our collection and use of your information satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
you give us consent to collect and/or use your information for a specific purpose; or
we need to process your information to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.
Under the laws of certain jurisdictions, when processing personal data of Authorized Users in connection with the provision of Services to our Customers, we may be deemed a ‘data processor’ while our Customers are deemed ‘data controllers’. Where we are deemed a data processor, we rely on our Customer, the data controller, to ascertain they have legitimate bases to authorize our processing of Customer Data. Authorized Users should contact our Customer, the data controller, to withdraw consent, object to processing, or pursue any legal data subject rights.
Where we are using your information because we or a Customer (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, and you object to such use, then, in some cases, this may mean no longer being able to access or use the Services.
We will retain your Personal Data for as long as your account is in existence or otherwise as necessary to provide you the Services. You can review more information in our Data retention documentation.
