This policy to be consistent with the following principles:
As used in this policy, "personal information" means information that would allow someone to identify you, including your name, email address, IP address, or other information from which someone could deduce your identity.
EMANT collects and uses personal information in the following ways:
Website Analytics: When you visit our Websites and use our Services, EMANT collects some information about your activities through tools such as Google Analytics. The type of information that we collect focuses on general information such as country or city where you are located, pages visited, time spent on pages, heat-map of visitors’ activity on the site, information about the browser you are using, etc. EMANT collects and uses this information pursuant to our legitimate interest in enhancing the security and utility of our Services. The information we gather and process is used in the aggregate to spot trends without deliberately identifying individuals.
Note that you can learn about Google's practices in connection with its analytics services and how to opt out of it.
Information from Cookies: We and our service providers (for example, Google Analytics as described above) may collect information using cookies or similar technologies for the purposes described above and below. Cookies are pieces of information that are stored by your browser on the hard drive or memory of your computer or other Internet access device. Cookies may enable us to personalize your experience on the Services, maintain a persistent session, passively collect demographic information about your computer, and monitor advertisements and other activities. The Websites may use different kinds of cookies and other types of local storage (such as browser-based or plugin-based local storage).
Log-In Services: When you register to obtain a user account on any of the Services (any such person, a "Registered User"), you will be asked to provide personal information to create your account and establish a password and profile. EMANT collects and uses this personal information pursuant to its legitimate interest in establishing and maintaining your account providing you with the features we provide Registered Users. We may use your email address to contact you regarding changes to this policy or other applicable policies. The name or nickname you provide in connection with your account may be used to attribute you in connection with any content you submit to any Service.
Emails and Newsletters: When you sign up to receive updates from EMANT PTE LTD or otherwise subscribe to one of our mailing lists, you will be asked to provide some personal information. EMANT collects and uses this personal information pursuant to its legitimate interest in providing news and updates to users. You may unsubscribe from our mailing list at any time by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of each newsletter.
Other Voluntarily Provided Information: When you provide feedback to EMANT PTE LTD, or otherwise submit personal information to EMANT PTE LTD, EMANT collects and uses this personal information pursuant to its legitimate interest in better understanding our users and in furtherance of the particular program or activity to which you provided feedback or other input.4. Retention of Personal Information
The majority of the personal information collected and used as explained in Section 3 above is aggregated and stored in a central database provided by a third party service provider. EMANT aggregates this data pursuant to its legitimate interest in having information stored in a single location to minimize complexity, increase consistency in internal practices, better understand its users, and enhance the security of the data.
EMANT erases the web browser logs described above on a regular, rolling basis. We generally retain other personal information for the purposes for which it was collected. This may mean that we retain your personal information indefinitely in some cases.5. Access to Your Personal Information
You are generally entitled to remove any personal information that EMANT PTE LTD holds and to have inaccurate data corrected or removed to the extent EMANT still maintains it.6. Disclosure of Your Personal Information
EMANT does not disclose personal information to third parties except as specified elsewhere in this policy and in the following instances:
EMANT PTE LTD has implemented reasonable physical, technical, and organizational security measures for personal information that EMANT PTE LTD processes against accidental or unlawful destruction, or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, in compliance with applicable law. However, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. If any data breach occurs, we will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Websites and comply with all other applicable data privacy requirements including, when required, personal notice to you if you have provided and we have maintained an email address for you.
The EMANT Login Services account systems have security risks in addition to those described above. Among other things, they are vulnerable to DNS attacks, and using any EMANT Login Service may increase the risk of phishing.8. Third Party Service Providers
EMANT PTE LTD uses many third party service providers in connection with the Services, including website hosting services, database management, credit card processing, and many more. Some of these service providers may place session cookies on your computer, and they may collect and store your personal information on our behalf in accordance with the data practices and purposes explained above in Section 3.9. Third Party Sites
If you are accessing or using the Services in regions with laws governing data collection, processing, transfer and use, please note that when we use and share your data as specified in this policy, we may transfer your information to recipients in countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information.
