PROPHESEE is the “data controller” of any personal data it may collect, process and hold, unless we inform you otherwise.

 

  1. What personal data do we collect?

 

The personal data we collect from you directly can include your name, email address, mobile/landline telephone number, professional address, your purchasing activity and payment information if any purchases have been performed, and information you give us when you file a form and/or contact our customer services team. If you are browsing our website, we may collect your IP address or other device identifier.

 

  1. When do we collect your personal data?

  1. How do we use your personal data and what are our justifications for doing so?

 

  • To make our technology, products and services available to you.

We use your personal data to provide you with the information on our Event-Based Vision technology, products and services that you request or purchase from us (i.e. to complete certain tasks, processes or orders on our website, take payment online where applicable and deliver you information, products or services), and to communicate with you regarding those technology, products and services and respond to your questions and comments.

We rely on our contractual arrangements with you as the lawful basis on which we collect and process your personal data when you make an order for products and services. Alternatively, in some cases, we rely on our legitimate interests as a business partner (for example, to measure customer satisfaction and troubleshoot customer issues). Where we rely on our legitimate interests, we will always make sure that we balance these interests against your rights.

 

  • For administrative and internal business purposes

We may use your personal data for our internal business purposes, such as enhancing our site, improving our services and products and identifying usage and application trends. We may also use your data to monitor the use of our website and ensure that our website is presented in the most effective and relevant manner for you and your device and setting default options for you.

It is in our legitimate interests as a business partner to use your personal data in this way. For example, we want to ensure our website is customer friendly and works properly and that our products and services are efficient and of high quality. We also want to make it easy for you to interact with us. Where we rely on our legitimate interests, we will always make sure that we balance these interests against your rights.

 

  • For security and legal reasons

The Event Based Vision technology is an advanced, valuable and sensitive technology that needs to be protected from misappropriation. As consequence, we may use your personal data to: (i) ensure the personal and financial information you provide us is accurate; (ii) conduct fraud checks or prevent other illegal activity; (iii) conduct export control compliance checks; (iv) protect our rights or property (or those of others); and (v) fulfil our legal and compliance-related obligations.

In some cases, we will use your personal data because it’s necessary for us to comply with a legal obligation (such as if we receive a legitimate request from a law enforcement agency). In other cases (such as the detection of fraud) we will rely on our legitimate interests as a business to use your personal data in this way. Where we rely on our legitimate interests, we will always make sure that we balance these interests against your rights.

 

  • For personalizing your experience with Prophesee:

We provide you with technical, software and data set material by a form filing and execution or specific access granted to our knowledge center, always subject to your consent to this.

We process your registration details, account activity and purchase history to analyze your interest, how you download and what you shop for. This may include information on historical transactions and products you have shopped.

We rely on your consent to send email marketing messages to you as an Event Based Vision Technology community member based on the consent we acquired from you when you signed up, as amended by you from time to time.

 

  1. Who do we share your personal data with?

 

We will never sell any of your personal data to a third party. However, in order for us to provide our services to you, we share your personal data with our trusted third-party service providers or our group companies, as detailed below.

  • To prevent crime and comply with laws and regulations

We may share your financial information including your bank account references credit, debit card or other payment information with third parties to ensure that your payment is safe and that your details are not being used fraudulently. This data sharing enables us to conduct fraud analysis which ensures that genuine and accurate payment details are provided to us for any purchase. We may share your personal data with credit agencies to assess your solvency.

There may be other scenarios where we are subject to a legal obligation to share or disclose your personal data, such as with law enforcement agencies or public authorities in order (i) to prevent or detect crime or fulfil a legal requirement. : (i) ensure the personal and financial information you provide us is accurate; (iii) conduct export control compliance checks; (iv) protect our rights or property (or those of others); and (v) fulfil our legal and compliance-related obligations.
