1. PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY.
We collect various types of personal data on our Websites. The personal data that we collect may fall under the following categories:

• Voluntary
Certain parts of our Websites may ask you to provide personal data voluntarily. For example, we may ask you to provide your contact details in order to (1) register an account with us; (2) to subscribe to marketing communications from us or to receive our newsletter; and or (3) to submit questions to us. The personal data that you are asked to provide, and the reasons why you are asked to provide it, are explained to you (e.g., consent notice) at the point you provide your personal data.

• Automatic
When you visit our Websites, we may collect certain information automatically from your computer or mobile device (“Device”). In some countries, including countries in the European Economic Area, this information may be considered personal data under applicable data protection laws.

Specifically, the information we collect automatically may include information like your (1) IP address; (2) Device type; (3) unique Device identification numbers; (4) browser-type; (5) preferences; (6) broad geographic location (e.g. country or city-level location); and (7) other technical information. We may also collect information about how your Device has interacted with our Websites, including the pages accessed and links clicked.

Collecting this information enables us to better understand: (1) who visits our Websites; (2) where the visitors come from; and (3) the visited content. We use this information for internal analytics and to improve the quality and relevance of our Websites to our visitors.

Some of this information may be collected using cookies and similar tracking technology, as explained further under the heading “Cookies And Similar Tracking Technology” below.

• Information from other sources
From time to time, we may receive personal data about you from other sources (e.g., retailers, market research agencies, etc.) but only when we verified that these third parties either have your consent or are legally permitted or required to disclose your personal data to us.

The types of information we collect from third parties include contact details such as name, email address, phone number, etc. The information from these third parties are used for a variety of reasons which include, but not limited to, process and fulfil orders, participate in surveys, receive promotional materials or to keep an accurate record of your information.

2. WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA WITH?
We may disclose your personal data to the following types of recipients:

• affiliates and or subsidiaries within Oregon Tool or third parties who provide data processing services such as (1) supporting a Website’s functionality or enhance a Website’s security; (2) to process personal data for the purpose(s) described in this Privacy Notice; or (3) as explained to you when we collected your personal data;

• law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where such disclosure is necessary (1) as a matter of complying with applicable laws or regulations; (2) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights; or (3) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;

• potential buyer (and its agents or advisers) in connection with any proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer that it must use your personal data only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice;

• any other person with your consent.

3. LEGAL BASIS WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA.
If you are a visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal data and the specific purpose it was collected.

However, we will normally collect personal data from you only when (1) we have your consent to do so; (2) we need the personal data to perform a contract with you; or (3) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

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

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

4. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TRACKING TECHNOLOGY.
We use cookies and similar tracking technology (collectively, “Cookies”) to collect and use personal data. For further information about the types of Cookies we use, why, and how you can control Cookies, please refer to our Cookie Notice (click here).

5. TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA OUTSIDE THE EU/EEA.
Oregon Tool will transfer and process your personal data outside your country of residence. For example, we may use web hosting providers or cloud computing service providers who store or access your personal data outside the EU/EEA. In some cases, these countries may be located outside the European Union/European Economic Area (EU/EEA) and may have data protection laws that are different than the laws of your country of residence.

Where this is the case, we make sure that your personal data is transferred to third countries outside the EU/EEA that are deemed “adequate” by the European Commission (a list of adequate countries is available here). For example, transfers to our entities in the United States are covered under the Privacy Shield Framework and our EU-US Privacy Shield Privacy Policy is available here. Alternatively, where your personal data is not sent to a country that provides adequate protection, we will put in place appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal data remains protected while it is being processed outside the EU/EEA in accordance with applicable privacy laws. These appropriate safeguards may include signing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses with the group entity, third party service provider outside the EU/EEA with whom we share your personal data. For further information about transfers of personal data, please refer to the “How To Contact Us” section below.

6. HOW LONG DO WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We retain personal data we collect for as long as necessary to enable us to fulfil the purposes described in this Privacy Notice and where we have an ongoing legitimate business interest to do so (e.g., provide a service that you have requested).

Once the purpose for processing your personal data no longer exists, or the period of retention has expired, or if you ask us to delete your personal data, we may continue to store your personal data for a limited period of time, if necessary, to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business interest to process your personal data, we will make sure your personal data is either deleted or anonymised.

7. HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We utilize precautions to protect the confidentiality and security of the personal data within our Websites, by employing technological, physical and administrative security safeguards, such as firewalls and security procedures. For example, when you enter confidential information (such as login credentials or information submitted from within the Website), we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). These technologies, procedures and other measures are used in an effort to ensure that your personal data remains safe, secure, and only available to you and to those you authorized to access your personal data. However, no internet, e-mail or other electronic transmission is ever fully secure or error free, so you should take care in deciding what information you send to us in this way.

8. MINORS.
The services we provide on our Websites are not intended for individuals below the age of 18. If you are under 18, please do not provide your personal data on this Website.

9. WHAT ARE YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS AND HOW CAN YOU EXERCISE THEM?
You have the following data protection rights:

• Request access to and obtain a copy of your personal data.

• Request any personal data that is inaccurate or incomplete be rectified (“updated”) or completed.

• Request that your personal data be erased under certain legal conditions (e.g., where the personal data is no longer needed for the original purpose).

Contact details for data protection authorities in the European Economic Area, Switzerland and certain non-European countries (including the U.S.A. and Canada) are available here.

You may exercise any of these rights at any time by contacting us as described under the “How To Contact Us” section below. We will respond to your request in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

10. EXTERNAL LINKS.
If any part of the Website links you to other websites, those websites do not operate under this Privacy Notice. We recommend you examine the privacy notices posted on those websites to understand their procedures for collecting, using and disclosing personal data.
