Why do we collect and use personal data?
We use your Personal Information for the following purposes:
What type of personal data is collected?
We collect name, phone number, title, and email address, in addition to your company’s name and contact information. We may also collect feedback, comments and questions received from you in service-related communication and activities, such as meetings, phone calls, documents, and emails. From our websites we may collect IP-address and actions taken on the site. If you upload photos or videos, add posts or comments, etc. on community websites (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), the information can be read by anyone with access to those sites and used for purposes over which BrainScale or you have no control. Therefore, BrainScale is not responsible for any information you submit to the community websites.
If you apply for a job at BrainScale, we collect the data you provide during the application process. BrainScale does not collect or process any special categories of personal data, such as public unique identifiers or sensitive personal data.
We do not sell, rent, or trade your Contact Information to any third parties or share it with third parties (other than as described above) for promotional purposes, but we reserve the right to do so in future. We will seek your consent at that time if required.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received.

If you have any questions about security, contact us under the “Contact Us” section.
How long do we keep your personal data?
We store personal data for as long as we find it necessary to fulfill the purpose for which the personal data was collected, while also considering our need to answer your queries or resolve possible problems, to comply with legal requirements under applicable laws, to attend to any legal claims/complaints, and for safeguarding purposes. This means that we may retain your personal data for a reasonable period of time after your last interaction with us. When the personal data that we have collected is no longer required, we will delete it in a secure manner. We may process data for statistical purposes, but in such cases, data will be anonymized.
