Personal Information refers to information that by itself identifies an individual (details such as name or email address) as well as information that can be combined to identify an individual. In this Policy we distinguish Operational Personal Information from Personal Information in content that may be backed up, stored or hosted through use of our Products and Services, and treat each type of Personal Information differently, as described below.
Operational Personal Information
Operational Personal Information is Personal Information we collect and use in order to provide, Support and market our Products and Services. Operational Personal Information may include name, address, telephone number, and email address. We collect Operational Personal Information from individuals (including individual representatives of companies or other legal entities such as employees, officers or administrators) who register for a Service Level Agreement, purchase and use our Products and Support Services and from individuals who contact us directly and voluntarily disclose such information to us. This list includes authorised businesses, organisations, users or potential users, or persons authorised to deal directly with 10-100 for Service Level Agreement, Product and Services Support (we will refer to all of these in this Policy as “Customers”). 10-100 collects Operational Personal Information in many ways such as when someone fills out a form on one of our Website(s), submits an email or other inquiry to us, posts on one of our community forums, registers for, purchases or uses our Product and Services, registers or logs on to one of the areas of our Website(s) or web-based services that are restricted to registered users, or requests Technical or Product Support.
How we may Use Operational Personal Information
10-100 uses Operational Personal Information for responding to and processing inquiries, orders and Support Service requests or generally for any other purpose related to the original purpose for which the Operational Personal Information was originally collected. 10-100 may also use Operational Personal Information for supporting your relationship with 10-100 by designing Support Services that are suitable to your needs, general Product Support and updates, marketing, alerting you to new Product and Service offerings as they become available, continuing existing Technical Service and Support, and other similar purposes. This Information may also be used to provide you with notices about your Technical Support Services, your use of the Products and Services, and to carry out 10-100’s obligations and enforce our rights arising from any Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection purposes.
Personal Information in Content
We treat all Content that is backed up, stored or hosted using our Products and Services in the same manner, described below, regardless of whether or not it contains Personal Information.
How we may use Content
In the course of providing Technical and Product Support requested by a Customer, 10-100 may have incidental access to Content. Any Customer request for Technical and Product Support will be deemed express permission for us to access Content as needed for the limited purposes of providing the requested Technical and Product Support. The Customer, as the data controller, is responsible for furnishing any notices or obtaining any consents required by law from the relevant individuals within their own Company. Technical and Product Support Services may be provided by any 10-100 entity on behalf of another.
Personal Information, including any Personal Information in Content, does not include Aggregate Information, which is information we collect or process about a group or category of data. Aggregate Information cannot be attributed to any individual. We may use and share such Aggregate Information to improve Technical Support, Products, develop new Products, understand and/or analyse usage, demand, and general industry trends, develop and publish white papers, reports, and databases summarising the foregoing, and generally for any purpose related to our business. Aggregate Information may be derived from information provided by any Customer, from use of our Technical Support and Products or from passive data collection techniques described below. No Personal Information is included in Aggregate Information. This Policy does not restrict or limit our collection and use of Aggregate Information.
How we may Share Personal Information and Content
10-100 will not give, sell, share, or trade any Operational Personal Information or any Personal Information in Content to any party outside of 10-100 except as outlined in this Policy or with appropriate consent. We may disclose Personal Information to a third party in the following limited circumstances:
when we have a good faith belief that the disclosure is necessary to prevent or respond to fraud, defend our Website(s) or Products against possible attacks, or protect the property and safety of 10-100, our Customers or the public;
as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, warrant, regulatory oversight or similar legal process;
in connection with any potential sale, transfer, merger, consolidation or other transaction involving all or part of our company.
In addition, we may disclose Operational Personal Information (but not Content), as needed, in the following circumstances:
to companies that provide services that help us with our business activities such as processing Customer payments or Manufacturer Warranty claims. These companies are authorised to use Personal Information only as necessary to provide these services to us; and
to companies that work with 10-100 on various projects; for example, 10-100 may share Operational Personal Information for customer relationship management purposes, Manufacturers licensing and registration purposes, email marketing purposes, or with other companies whose products or services we think may be of interest to our Customers in joint marketing and support efforts.
