Meeting Nymity at events

When you meet Nymity representatives at events, we may ask you to provide us with your Personal Data to follow up on conversations. These data will likely include your name, the name of your organisation and function and contact details, and can be collected by taking your business card, writing down the information or collecting it via automated means offered by the conference organiser. Your Personal Data will be used after the event to reach out to you and will be stored in our CRM to monitor the outcomes of any event.

Data sharing

Your Personal Data is collected for and processed by Nymity for our own purposes as described in this Notice. At no time, your Data will be rented or sold to third parties. We may however share and disclose information, including Personal Data about our customers, in limited circumstances as described below.

Nymity transfers Personal Data to third parties, such as vendors and service providers who perform tasks on our behalf, such as for processing and storage purposes. This data sharing is part of the original processing of your Personal Data on the basis of a contract or on the basis of the consent you have provided on our website. The current list of categories of companies which process personal data on our behalf is:

  • Payment processing providers
  • Website analytics companies (including Google Analytics)
  • CRM and marketing services providers (including Hubspot, and for North America customers, DiscoverOrg)
  • E-mail service providers
  • Cloud storage hosting providers
  • Social Media providers

Your Personal Data may also be shared with other customers of Nymity following your explicit and informed consent, in case you have been requested by your sales representative to serve as reference for our Services in a specific situation.

If Nymity has received your Personal Data and subsequently transfers that data to a third party agent or service provider for processing, Nymity will remain responsible by executing contracts requiring them to protect the privacy and confidentiality of the Personal Data provided to them for purposes of performing their functions for Nymity. Unless we tell you differently and you consent, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

Although very unlikely, in some instances, such as a legal proceeding or court order, Nymity may be required to disclose certain information to authorities. Only the information specifically requested is disclosed and Nymity shall take precautions to satisfy ourselves that the authorities who are making the request have legitimate grounds to do so.

In the event Nymity is merged with or is acquired by another organization, Nymity will make every reasonable effort to notify you if Nymity shares with the merging or acquiring organization some or all of your Personal Data.

 

Data Storage

Upon collection of your Data, they will be transferred to our servers in Canada. The Data may be further transferred to other countries, for example to Nymity offices in other jurisdictions, or in other situations explicitly mentioned in this Notice. Where Personal Data collected by Nymity in the EU is transferred to a third party agent or service provider for processing in a non-EU country, Nymity will ensure the requirements for international data transfers under EU law are satisfied. This includes, but is not limited to, direct transfers from Nymity’s EU locations to any U.S. based agents or service providers (including Hubspot) under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.

 

Security for Privacy

Nymity protects Personal Data against unauthorized access. Nymity has organizational, technical and physical security safeguards in place to protect Personal Data. Personal Data shall be protected by security safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the information.

Notwithstanding that Nymity has security safeguards in place to protect Personal Data, Customers using our Services are always encouraged to take measures to protect themselves against unintended intrusions to their personal privacy (i.e., maintain access pass codes and/or PINs in a confidential manner).

 

Data Retention

We will keep personal information about you for as long as we provide solutions to you, as long as you work for or with us, or as long as we are addressing a concern, question, complaint, or request you have made to us, as applicable to our interactions with you. If we have a contract or other agreement with you, we will follow the retention obligations of that agreement.

We may keep data longer if we have a legal obligation to keep it or to maintain necessary records for legal, financial, compliance, or other reporting obligations, and to enforce our rights and agreements. We also may keep data about you for statistical analysis or research purposes.

 

Profiling

Our marketing and sales teams may analyze your Personal Data, in order to make profiles of Nymity users and prospects. At no time, this will lead to automated decision making with legal effect. The profiles may be used by Nymity to further improve our marketing communications and sales cycle.
