How, and the sources from which, we obtain your personal data
We collect personal data from individuals (including individual representatives on behalf of companies or other legal entities – such as employees, officers or administrators) who express an interest in, register for, or purchase our products either on their own behalf or on behalf of such legal entities, or use our products on their own behalf. Such individuals may alternatively be acting on behalf of authorized resellers or authorized distributors. In this notice we refer to all of these individuals as “Customers“).

How we may use personal data and our basis for using it
This section provides details of the purposes for which we process your personal data, the categories of personal data that we process and, where we are a “Controller” of the data, the legal bases upon which we rely to process your personal data.
Faronics uses names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses (“Contact Information”) and/or credit/debit card numbers, for responding to and processing inquiries and orders. Where we are a Controller, our legal basis for doing so is because it is necessary to pursue our legitimate interests in the provision of services as part of our business operations.

Faronics may also use Contact Information for marketing to you, including alerting you to new product offerings as they become available. We will only do this if we have obtained your consent to do so. In such circumstances we may contact you by post, telephone or email, subject to having received your consent. You will be given the option to stop receiving any communications from us in this regard at any time, however please note that this will not affect us contacting you about the servicing of products that you have specifically requested from us.
Your Contact Information may also be used to provide you with information in connection with your purchases, and to administer your account with us, from time to time. Where we are a Controller, our legal basis for doing so is because it is necessary to perform our contract with you.
Your Contact Information may be used to enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us, including for billing and collection. Where we are a Controller, our legal basis for doing so is because it is necessary to pursue our legitimate interests in enforcing our rights under contracts.
Faronics may also use Contact Information to sell, make ready for sale or dispose of our business in whole or in part including to any potential buyer or their advisers.

We also obtain and use certain aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose (“Aggregate Information”). Aggregate Information may be derived from your personal data but does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity and is not personal data.

Faronics’s products and services help simplify computer management and our products are designed to help protect privacy. Using our cloud agent, our services allow the managed devices to call into our secure cloud console on a regular basis and transmit to our servers certain information relating to the managed devices (including IP address, device name, user name, list of hardware and installed software). With your consent and participation, some of our products may also collect additional asset-related information for certain other purposes designated by you, such as hardware/software inventory, lease management, PC migration and software license compliance.

Transfers of Personal Information where we are not a Controller
Where we are not a Controller in respect of your personal data, we may transfer personal data, to 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 the information was initially provided. When we transfer personal information to other countries, we will protect that information as described in this Notice.
