If you want to learn more about cookies, or how to control, disable, or delete them, please visit https://www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

WHEN WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We will collect Personal Information from you when you provide it to us, where we have your consent to do so, where we need the Personal Information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect Personal Information from you or may otherwise need the Personal Information to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If we ask you to provide Personal Information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your Personal Information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

Similarly, if we collect and use your Personal Information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

HOW AUTONOMIC USES YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

Autonomic may access or process the Personal Information collected through your use of the Autonomic Website and/or platform for a range of reasons, which may include:

  1. To provide, operate, optimize and maintain its services;
  2. To manage Autonomic’s platform, system administration and security;
  3. To compile aggregated statistics about the operation and use of Autonomic’s services and to better understand the preferences of users;
  4. To carry out research and development to improve our products and services;
  5. To investigate and prevent fraud, unauthorized access or use of services, breaches of terms and policies, and other wrongful behavior;
  6. To carry out other legitimate business purposes, as well as other lawful purposes about which Autonomic will notify you; and
  7. To disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities (e.g., to meet national security or law enforcement requirements).

Our Website may contain links to third party websites or third party applications (“apps”). When you click on a link to any other website, app or location, you will leave our Website and go to another site and another entity may collect Personal Information or anonymized data from you. Please be aware that the terms of this Privacy Policy do not apply to these outside websites, apps or content, or to any collection of your Personal Information after you click on links to such outside websites or apps. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of every website you visit or app you use.

HOW AUTONOMIC HOLDS AND SECURES YOUR INFORMATION

We care about the security of your Personal Information and take appropriate steps including technical and organizational measures to ensure your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing your Personal Information. Personal information may be shared with cloud storage service providers. Autonomic remains responsible for any Personal Information that is shared with third parties for external processing on Autonomic’s behalf.

HOW LONG AUTONOMIC RETAINS YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We retain Personal Information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

INTERNATIONAL DATA TRANSFERS

If you are visiting the Website from outside the United States, please be aware that you are sending information (including your Personal Information) to the United States where our servers are located. Your information may then be transferred within the United States or back out of the United States to other countries outside of your country of residence, depending on the type of information and how it is stored by us. These countries, including the United States, may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country (and, in some cases, may not be as protective).  Autonomic’s collection, storage and use of your Personal Information will at all times continue to be governed by this Privacy Policy. For individuals in the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom or Switzerland: if we transfer your Personal Information to the United States or any other country which is not subject to an adequacy decision of the Commission of the European Union regarding an adequate level of protection of personal data, we will put in place appropriate safeguards in accordance with our legal obligations to ensure that your Personal Information is adequately protected irrespective of the country to which it is transferred. These safeguards may include entering into appropriate agreements, including without limitation, standard contractual clauses, or alternative mechanisms for the transfer of data as approved by the European Commission.

YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS

If you are a resident of the European Union, you may have the following data protection rights with respect to your use of our Website in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation. Specifically:

  1. If you wish to access, correct, update or request deletion of your Personal Information, you can do so at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided below.
  2. You can object to processing of your Personal Information, ask us to restrict processing of your Personal Information or request portability of your Personal Information. Again, you can exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details provided below.
  3. If we have collected and processed your Personal Information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect our right to have processed your Personal Information prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your Personal Information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  4. You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your Personal Information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use Personal Information from children under 13 years of age, and no part of our Website is directed to children under the age of 13. We will take steps to delete it if we learn we have inadvertently collected it.

If you learn that your child has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, you may alert us using the contact details provided below. If we learn that we have collected any Personal Information from children under 13, we will promptly take steps to delete such information and terminate the child’s account.

UPDATES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments.
