If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal information described above will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which we collect it.

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal information).

Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

In relation to our cloud service, those relevant Customers are responsible for determining the appropriate legal basis for using your personal information.

If you purchase or specifically express an interest in a jointly-offered product or service, or participate in a joint-marketing activity, we may share relevant personal information with those partner(s). Where you have given your consent to do so, these business partners may send You marketing communications about their own products and services.

Our partners are responsible for managing their own use of the personal information collected in these circumstances. We recommend you review the privacy notices of the relevant partner to find out more about their handling of your personal information.
