Effective Date: August 7, 2020
This PARASCADD Privacy Statement ("Privacy Statement") describes how PARASCADD and its affiliates (together, "PARASCADD" or "we") collect and process information about you. We appreciate that you trust us when you provide us with your information. Protection of information is our top priority because we want to keep your trust.
We design all of our products and services with data protection in mind. We work hard to keep your information secure. We regularly monitor and update our security practices to help better protect your privacy.
In this Privacy Statement, (i) to "process" personal data means to perform any operation on the information, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organizing, storing, adapting, use, disclosure, combining, erasing or destroying and (ii) "personal data" means data that identifies, directly or indirectly, an individual natural person.
Please read this Privacy Statement carefully. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT, THEN PLEASE DO NOT PROVIDE YOUR PERSONAL DATA TO US OR USE THE SERVICES.
This Privacy Statement applies to our "Services", which means public portions of PARASCADD’s websites, including, but not limited to PARASCADD.com
Our right to process personal data also is described in our agreements ("Customer Agreements") with our business customers ("Customers"). In our Customer Agreements, PARASCADD is typically contractually prohibited from accessing the personal data that Customers store and otherwise process through PARASCADD’s Services. If a provision of a Customer Agreement conflicts or otherwise is inconsistent with a provision of this Privacy Statement, then the term of the Customer Agreement will prevail to the extent of the conflict or inconsistency.
This Privacy Statement does not apply to information that is collected by any third-party website or service that you access through the Services.
The data controller (i.e., the person who or entity that determines the purpose and means of processing) for the personal data collected pursuant to this Privacy Statement is PARASCADD .
Please note that when we collect personal data pursuant to a Customer Agreement, we typically act as a data processor on behalf of our Customer.
Please note that in order to use our apps and websites, you authorise PARASCADD to transfer your personal information across national borders and to other countries where PARASCADD and its partners operate, including the United States. The privacy protections and rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be equivalent to those in your country. We will only transfer your personal information to these countries where permitted to do so by law and we will take steps intended to ensure that your personal information continues to receive appropriate protections.
For cross-border transfers of personal data, PARASCADD uses appropriate safeguards to require that your personal data be protected in accordance with this Privacy Statement and applicable data protection laws. These safeguards include implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (Art. 46 GDPR) and other valid mechanisms for transfers of personal data among our affiliates and data processors.
PARASCADD complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework administered by the US Department of Commerce (together, "Privacy Shield"). Please see our Privacy Shield Policy https://www.PARASCADD.com/company/privacy-shield/ for more information.
The Effective Date of this Privacy Statement is set forth at the top of this webpage. As we add new features to the Services, differ our operations or are required by applicable laws, we may amend this Privacy Statement. If we make a material change to the Privacy Statement that reduces your privacy rights, we will notify you in advance through the Services. Your continued use of the Services after the Effective Date constitutes your acceptance of the amended Privacy Statement. The amended Privacy Statement supersedes all previous versions.
Personal data you choose to give us
When you use the Services, we collect the personal data that you give us when using the Services.
PARASCADD does not need special categories of personal information (also known as "sensitive personal information or data"), as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to provide the Services. PARASCADD avoids collecting sensitive personal data from you through the Services or otherwise. Unless PARASCADD specifically requests it, please do not provide sensitive personal data to PARASCADD. If you choose to provide PARASCADD with unsolicited sensitive personal data, PARASCADD will process it only as necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. In the rare circumstances in which PARASCADD does seek to collect sensitive personal data, PARASCADD will do so in accordance with data protection laws and/or ask for your consent.Information collected when you use the Services
When you use the Services, we collect information about which features you use and how you use them and information about the computer, tablet or mobile telephone ("Device") that you use to access the Services (collectively, "Usage Data"). Usage Data is personal data under certain privacy laws.
To help keep our databases current and to provide you the most relevant content and experiences, we may combine information provided by you with information from third party sources, in accordance with applicable law. For example, the size, industry and other information about the company you work for (where you have provided company name) will be obtained from sources including, professional networking sites and information service providers. We may also collect and receive information from third parties, including partners and from publicly accessible sources, for purposes that include to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, as well as to protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Parascadd and our employees, our users, children or the public.PARASCADD collects the following Usage Data:
We may link personal data and Usage Data or different types of Usage Data. We also may link personal data that we collect with publicly-available personal data, such as personal data available in public databases. If the linked information directly or indirectly identifies an individual natural person, we will treat it as personal data.Voice data
PARASCADD collects certain information through the PARASCADD Customer Experience Program ("CEP").
Unless you consent to PARASCADD processing your personal data as part of CEP, PARASCADD will only collect pseudonymized Usage Data as part of CEP. PARASCADD gathers such pseudonymized Usage Data to improve PARASCADD products and services. PARASCADD achieves the pseudonymization by associating such data with a randomly generated number (pseudonym) instead of the personal ID associated with your PARASCADD account. PARASCADD cannot identify you by the pseudonym without you providing additional information to PARASCADD for identification purposes.
If you consent to PARASCADD processing your personal data as part of CEP, PARASCADD will connect your personal data to your CEP Usage Data. The personal data PARASCADD connects to your CEP Usage Data is limited to your PARASCADD account ID and account information. As in this case PARASCADD links personal data and Usage Data, PARASCADD treats the CEP Usage Data linked to your personal data as personal data. Your consent to PARASCADD processing your personal data as part of CEP allows PARASCADD to provide you more specific feedback and guidance about PARASCADD products, services, and features operation. You can consent to PARASCADD processing your personal data as part of CEP by checking the corresponding box in the product settings.Information collected through Data Collection Technology
We collect other information when you give us permission at the time of collection for the purposes disclosed to you at that time.
Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer's hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the "lifetime" of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services.
Cookies set by PARASCADD are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by other parties are called "third-party cookies". Third-party cookies enable PARASCADD to provide third-party features or functionality on or through the website (such as interactive content and analytics). Third-party cookies recognize your browser when it visits the Services and also when it visits certain other websites and services.
Cookies also are typically categorized as "session" cookies or "persistent" cookies. Session cookies are erased when your web browser is closed. For example, a session cookie tracks how you navigate through the Services so that you do not need to re-enter the same information during the same visit to the Services. Persistent cookies store your preferences and other information for your current and future visits – they are still stored in your browser when you reopen your browser. For example, we may use persistent cookies to record your choice of language and country location.
PARASCADD also uses other types of data collection technology, such as web beacons (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF). A web beacon is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic.
To learn more about cookies, web beacons and other data collection technology, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.How We Use Data Collection Technology
Data collection technology helps us improve your experience of the Services by, for example, storing your website language preferences, so you do not have to select it each time you use the Services, compiling statistics about use of the Services, helping us analyze technical and navigational information about the Services, and detecting and preventing fraud.The Services use the following cookies:
We use Google Analytics to better understand how our visitors and customers use our Services. Please see https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites for more information about how Google uses the information it collects through our websites. For Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs, please see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. Please see also Section 13 below. Detailed description of the specific cookies used, including their purpose and expiration period can be found in PARASCADD’s Cookie notice.Cookie Management
You can control and manage cookies using the Privacy Preference center, if PARASCADD makes it available in your region, or directly in your browser. Most browsers allow viewing, managing, deleting or blocking cookies. Please be aware that if you delete or block cookies directly in your browser then some of your preferences can be lost, as well as some functionality may no longer be available, including the ability to opt-out and mange cookies via the Privacy Preference center as this function itself uses cookie for keeping your preferences.
You may find the guidelines on how to control cookies for common browsers at the links below:
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a "Do Not Track" ("DNT") or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain personal data about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option, and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including PARASCADD, do not respond to DNT signals.
PARASCADD may share personal data collected through the Services as follows:
With our affiliates : We provide personal data to our affiliates that process personal data for purposes consistent with those described in this Privacy Statement or notified to you when your personal data are collected. For example, we may share your contact information as part of an attendee lists with our affiliates.
With our vendors and services providers : We share information with our vendors, including customer service, marketing and security testing service providers. PARASCADD will ensure that any vendor with which we share personal data agrees to safeguard it. Please also see Section 13 below for more information about how PARASCADD uses Google’s services.

As part of a corporate transaction : We may share and transfer personal data if we are involved in a merger, sale, acquisition, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy or other change of ownership or control by PARASCADD or any affiliated company (in each case, whether in whole or in part).
When required by law : PARASCADD or PARASCADD’s affiliates may use servers and other equipment to provide the Services that are located in countries where litigants, law enforcement, courts, and other agencies of the government may have the right to access personal data stored within their jurisdictions upon terms and conditions provided by local law. PARASCADD also may provide access to your personal data to government authorities if PARASCADD suspects or believes that your data contains child pornography or other prohibited content or data or that the data is used for illegal purposes. PARASCADD reserves the right to disclose personal data to any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party when we believe disclosure is necessary. When reasonably possible, PARASCADD will provide notice of any required or requested disclosure and reasonably cooperate to limit such disclosure to the extent allowed by law.
For other lawful disclosures : We also share information (i) if disclosure would mitigate PARASCADD’s liability in an actual or threatened lawsuit; (ii) as necessary to protect legal rights of PARASCADD, users, Customers, vendors, business partners or other interested parties; (iii) to pursue available remedies or limit the damages; (iv) to enforce our agreements; and (v) to respond to an emergency. PARASCADD may aggregate information collected through the Services and remove identifiers so that the information no longer identifies or can be used to directly identify an individual, household or device ("Aggregated Information"). PARASCADD may share Aggregated Information with third parties and does not limit third parties' use of the Aggregated Information.
