Dear visitor,

Welcome to Phabylon!

You are here to know more about how we (Phabylon) gather and process data concerning you (visitor, user, collaborator, customer), and for that reason we have elaborated this document that aims to clearly explain how we handle the processing of that information, and what are your rights with respect to safeguarding that information.

General important points

The first thing to have in mind when you engage in an interaction with us, such as when you visit our website, or respond or react to content in our e-mails or newsletters, is that by engaging in those activities you will be agreeing to the collection of personal data in accordance with this privacy policy.

Secondly, we want you to be aware that we may contract advertisement and marketing services from third-party agencies. When we do so, these third parties may collect personal data from you and your device in ways we do not control. This data can be transmitted from your device to the servers of the contracted third-party after which the data is processed.

The kind of personal data being collected

The types of data we collect can be generally classified into two groups: (1) Voluntarily submitted data, and (2) Usage data.

Voluntarily submitted data, is all the human readable information, that you explicitly communicate to us, mostly verbally or in writing, using for example phone calls, e-mails, website forms and surveys. You may use also pointing devices, such as your computer’s mouse or trackpad, to click and indicate a piece of information you want us to be aware of, such as a choice from a pre-defined list of options, or send, or submit, any piece of information you wish us to be aware of.

Usage data is automatically transmitted data between your device and a centralized server in a manner that is not immediately obvious to a human. Usage data may include, for example, the type of device being used to access our content, the operating system that device is using, the internet protocol (IP) address of the accessing device, the type, brand, and version of software used to access our content, unique identifiers, and diagnostic data. This data can be collected and transmitted with the help of so-called “cookies”.

 

To find out more about more about what “cookies” are, and how we use them in our website and communications please read out cookie policy at: https://www.phabylon.com/cookie-policy.
