When we refer to EyeGate, we or us, we mean our entire company.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

Personally identifiable information (Personal Information) is information that can be used to identify or contact you, such as your name, email address, telephone number or similar information. EyeGate only collects Personal Information that you choose to share with us, such as when (1) contacting us via the Site (e.g., by clicking on the “Contact Us” or “Feedback” links), or (2) submitting your resume online in response to a job posting.

Use of Personal Information

Any information you provide to EyeGate must be true, accurate, current, non-misleading, consistent and relevant for the purpose for which you are providing the information.

We may use your Personal Information (i) to send you materials that you have requested; (ii) to respond to your email queries, (iii) at your option, to notify you of communications that may be of interest to you, (iv) in the administration of the Website, and (v) as otherwise described in this Policy. You may elect to opt-out of receiving communications other than those relating to a specific query by following the instructions in “Opt-Out Choices” (below).

If your Personal Information is submitted through the Site when applying for a position with EyeGate, your Personal Information will be used solely for the purpose of accepting and evaluating you for the position. We may retain your Personal Information for a period of time, but only for the purpose of considering your application for current or future positions at EyeGate.

If you contact EyeGate via the Site with an inquiry, we will use your Personal Information contained in your email to respond to your specific inquiry or comments in the email. We may retain your email for a period of time, but will not use any of your Personal Information for any purpose other than responding to your email.

We may also use your Personal Information to improve our marketing efforts, statistically evaluate site usage, improve our Site, customize our Site’s content, layout and services, send you materials or information you have requested, or send communications to you that are necessary for operation of the Site.

The Site may automatically track certain non-personally identifiable information about your behavior while visiting the Site (Usage Data). The information gathered includes only the URL from which you accessed this Site, and which URL you visit next. We may collect and store this aggregate information in order to measure the Site’s performance and improve the Site’s design and functionality. We may also share this aggregate information with third parties to illustrate how the Site is used and for other marketing purposes.

Cookies

EyeGate does not use “cookies” or “session cookies,” which is information stored in a browser’s memory and passed back to the applicable server whenever a request for a new page on the Site is made.

DISCLOSURE

Subject to applicable law, we may disclose your Personal Information:

  • to our affiliates and/or subsidiaries; and
  • to unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on behalf of EyeGate (Service Providers) and are required to uphold and maintain EyeGate’s policies with respect to privacy and the treatment of your Personal Information (e.g., vendors maintaining our computer databases or performing marketing activities for EyeGate relating solely to services provided by EyeGate and its affiliates).

Any access to such information will be limited to the purpose for which such information was provided to our affiliate, subsidiary or Service Provider. Our affiliates, subsidiaries and Service Providers may be located throughout the world. Accordingly, information may be sent worldwide to countries which have a different level of privacy protection than the United States.

Subject to applicable law, we and our Service Providers may also disclose your Personal information:

  • to other persons as permitted by applicable law or regulation; and
  • to law enforcement personnel and agencies, or as part of a legal process, in order to protect our property or in furtherance of an investigation regarding a breach of the Site rules and policies, unauthorized access to or use of the Site or any other illegal activities.

CHILDREN

The Site is not generally intended for use by children under the age of 13, and EyeGate does not want to collect Personal Information from children in this age group. If we do become aware that a user under the age of 13 is attempting to or has submitted Personal Information through the Site, or is using any other of the Site’s features, we will inform the user that he or she is not eligible to use the Site. We will then expunge any related Personal Information from our records.
