It is important that you understand there is no requirement by law for you to provide Augustus with your personal details – the information you share with us is entirely voluntary, and you may avoid providing such information either by not filling in specific forms or by disabling cookies.
Collection of Information.
We collect information from you when you request information from us, such as reports, whitepapers, or other marketing materials or when you otherwise contact us. The type of information that we collect varies based on your interaction with us and may include: your full name, contact information (email address and phone number), job title, company name, and country.
In addition, we automatically collect the following information about your use of our Website through cookies, web beacons, and other technologies: your domain name; your browser type and operating system; web pages you view; links you click; your IP address; the length of time you visit our Website; and the referring URL, or the webpage that led you to our Website. We may combine this information with other information that we have collected about you, including, where applicable, your user name, name, and other personal information.
Use of Information.
We will normally collect or otherwise process Personal Information from you only: (i) where we need to process the information to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, (iii) where we have a legal obligation to process the information, (iv) where we need to process the information to protect your vital interests or those of another person, or (v) where we have your consent to do so. Augustus may provide additional or supplemental privacy notices to individuals at the time we collect their data, which will govern how we may process the information provided at that time.
We may use your Personal Information to form a view on what products or services we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. We may contact you with marketing communications using the Personal Information you have provided to us if you have actively expressed your interest in making a purchase or have made a purchase from us and, in any case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing, to the extent permitted by applicable law. Where required by law, we will get your express opt-in consent before we share your Personal Information with any company outside Augustus for marketing purposes. You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us at email@example.com or clicking on the opt-out link included in marketing messages. Should you choose to opt-out of receiving our marketing messages, we will continue to carry out our other relevant activities using your Personal Information, including sending non-marketing messages.
Your Consent & Revocation of Consent.
In certain circumstances, we will need to use your Personal Information even though you may have asked us to delete it or restrict our use of it, or when you objected to our use. If this is necessary, we will do so in a lawful, fair, and transparent manner. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
When updating your Personal Information, we may ask you to verify your identity before making any changes. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems). Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. Because we protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, even after information is deleted, it may not be immediately deleted from Augustus’ servers.
Release of Your Information for Legal Purposes.
We may access or release Personal Information about you when required to do so in order to comply with any applicable, laws, regulations, subpoena, or enforceable governmental or public authority request, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. We may also access or release Personal Information when we have a good faith belief that such access or release is reasonably necessary to (i) enforce applicable terms of service, including investigation of potential violations, (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues, (iii) respond to user support requests, or (iv) protect our rights, property, or safety, our users, and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention.
All Personal Information that we collect or process is considered confidential. We have implemented industry-standard security mechanisms, including education and training of our employees, to provide reasonable protection of your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. We have invested in and deployed a wide variety of technology and security features for the privacy and security of Personal Information. Access to Personal Information is only granted on a need-to-know basis.
