SCS SOFTWARE, INC: PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy explains how SCS Software, Inc and their respective subsidiaries (“SCS”) collect, use and share your information. This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect when you use our websites, mobile applications and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us, including when you attend events hosted or attended by SCS, contact us for customer support or visit our premises, facilities or offices (collectively, our “Facilities”).  This Privacy Policy does not apply to the information processed by SCS about its employees or job applicants, which is governed by a separate personnel privacy notice; or to information processed by SCS on behalf of its customers via the Services.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of the policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to our website homepages or sending you an email notification) or otherwise seek additional consent in accordance with applicable law.  We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy whenever you access the Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy.

Transfer of Information

SCS processes information in the United States and other countries.  Accordingly, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction.  We will take steps to ensure that your personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which we process it.  For instance, data transferred from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to SCS Software, Inc and its subsidiaries in the United States will be processed pursuant to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield (see below for more details).  In other cases, we will use European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses to ensure an adequate level of protection for data originating from the EEA.  Copies of the Standard Contractual Clauses we use to facilitate the transfer of data outside the EEA are available here and here.

Residents in the European Economic Area

If we collect your personal data while you are located in the EEA, you have certain rights and protections under the law regarding the processing of this personal data.  Please see the sections below for more details.

Legal Basis for Processing

When we process this personal data, we will only do so in the following situations:

  • We need to use your personal data to perform our responsibilities under our contract with you (e.g., processing payments for and providing our services you have requested).
  • We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data.  For example, we process the personal data we collect from you to send you marketing communications, to communicate with you about changes to our Services, to enhance the safety and security of our Facilities, and to provide, secure, and improve our Services.

Data Subject Requests for EU and EEA Residents

If you are in the EEA, you have the right to access personal data we hold about you and to ask that your personal data be corrected.  In certain cases, you may also have the right to request that we erase data we are processing or to restrict or object to certain of our processing activities.  You may also have the right to request that we provide the personal data you have provided us in a portable form for transmission to another controller’s service.  If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you may contact us as indicated in the “Contact Us” section below.

EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework

SCS Software, Inc and its US subsidiaries adhere in their processing of personal data received from the EEA (“EU Data”) to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework Principles established by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission (the “Principles”).  For more information about the Principles, please visit the Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield website.

Please direct any inquiries or complaints regarding our compliance with the Principles to the point of contact listed in the “Contact Us” section below.  If SCS does not resolve your complaint, you may submit your complaint free of charge for resolution to JAMS, SCS’s designated independent Privacy Shield dispute resolution provider, at https://www.jamsadr.com/eu-us-privacy-shield.  Under certain conditions specified by the Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint.  SCS is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission.  If SCS shares EU Data with a third-party service provider that processes the data solely on SCS’s behalf, then SCS may be held liable for that third party’s processing of EU Data in violation of the Principles, unless SCS can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

Under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), you have specific rights regarding your personal information if you are a California resident (“Consumer”) as further described in this section.

Verification of Request

Once you submit a request using one of the methods above, we will verify your personal identity based on the information we receive from you.  Typically, we may ask business contacts for full name, email address, physical address or phone number.  If you are contacting us from an email address not on file, we may ask for at least one other data point we already hold (such as an SCS event you attended).  Depending on data we have on file or other circumstances, we may ask for more or different information.  You can also designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on your behalf, but we will require proof that the person is authorized to act on your behalf and may also still ask you to verify your identity with us directly.
