All personal data is processed and stored securely, for no longer than is necessary in light of the reason(s) for which it was first collected. We will comply with our obligations and safeguard your rights. For more details on security see Section 8, below.

Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because it is necessary for our performance of a contract with you, because you have consented to our use of your personal data (e.g., by subscribing to emails), because it is in our legitimate interests, or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. Specifically, we may use your data for the following purposes:

  • Providing and managing your access to the WorkFusion Sites;
  • Personalizing and tailoring your experience on the WorkFusion Sites;
  • Supplying our products and services to you (please note that we require your personal data in order to enter into a contract with you);
  • Personalizing and tailoring our products and services for you;
  • Replying to emails from you;

With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your data for marketing purposes which may include contacting you by email with information, news and offers on our products, services, and events. We will not, however, send you any unsolicited marketing or spam and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we fully protect your rights and comply with our legal obligations.  By subscribing to our emails, we assume you are a business user and have an interest in the business content that we supply, even if you choose to use a personal email address.

8. Where and How Do We Store Your Personal Data

We only keep your personal data for as long as we need to in order to use it as described above in Section 6, and/or for as long as we have your permission to keep it.

The WorkFusion Sites are hosted in the United States and are governed by United States law. If you are using the WorkFusion Sites from outside the United States, please be aware that your personal data will be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. You are deemed to accept and agree to this transfer by using the WorkFusion Sites and submitting personal data to us.

Data security is important to WorkFusion, and to protect your data we have taken suitable measures to safeguard and secure personal data collected through the WorkFusion Sites.  WorkFusion also regularly evaluates and upgrades its security measures to ensure secure processing of personal data. No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure; accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.

9. Do we share your Personal Data

For the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, we use the services of various contractors, mainly digital service providers and trusted partners. These contractors process specific categories of personal data on our behalf to help us organize events, store data, analyze and organize data, provide support services, and perform customer engagements. With each of these contractors we have contractual agreements which ensure that your personal data is protected and that the processing of personal data is limited to the minimum necessary to perform the contracted services. We make sure that our contractors do not process your data for other purposes than those for which we agreed.

We make every effort to ensure that all the entities with whom we are working properly store your personal data in safe locations and that they implement appropriate security measures.

Some of the contractors are third parties who are not intended to process the personal data but may have access to it upon fulfilling their tasks or interacting with us, such as technical maintenance companies, financial or legal auditors.

We may also provide personal data to third parties in the following situations:

  • to public authorities, auditors or institutions authorized to conduct inspections or audits of WorkFusion. Such public authorities or institutions may be relevant data protection authorities or authorities for consumer protection;
  • to comply with a legal requirement or to protect the rights and assets of WorkFusion or other entities or people;
  • to third party acquirers; if WorkFusion’s business would be subject to a change of control or other similar procedure or acquisition and your personal data would be part of the transaction.
  • For the processing purposes described to you above, we may share your personal data with subsidiaries of WorkFusion that are located in India, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Belarus; each such WorkFusion subsidiary will be under the direction of WorkFusion.

10. What Happens If Our Business Changes Hands

We may, from time to time, expand or reduce our business and this may involve the sale and/or the transfer of control of all or part of our business. Any personal data that you have provided will, where it is relevant to any part of our business that is being transferred, be transferred along with that part and the new owner or newly controlling party will, under the terms of this Privacy Policy, be permitted to use that data only for the same purposes for which it was originally collected by us.

11. How Can You Control Your Data

In addition to your rights set forth in Section 4, when you submit personal data via a WorkFusion Site, you may be given options to restrict our use of your personal data. In particular, we aim to give you strong controls on our use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including the ability to opt-out of receiving emails from us which you may do by unsubscribing using the links provided in our emails and at the point of providing your details).

12. Your California privacy rights

California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for such third parties’ direct marketing purposes.
