You may choose to give us personal information directly in a variety of situations. For example, you may want to give us your name and contact information to communicate with you, to order a product, to process an order, to register for a service, to provide you with a subscription, or to do business with us if you are a supplier or a reseller. You may also provide your credit card details to buy something from us or may share a description of your education and work experience in connection with a job opening at DeepVerge for which you wish to be considered. If you tell us that you do not want us to use your information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your request, we will respect your wishes.
When you wish to receive information, download publications, enrol for a live or virtual event or request a trial, we may ask you to provide your name and business contact information, as well as other information in connection with your request.

We may also ask you to register an id for DeepVerge or one of our subsidiaries, in which case you need to provide us with your name, email address, country location and other information if needed for the purpose for which you are asked to register. The id serves to uniquely identify you when you visit our websites, have a request or order or use a product, app or service., registration details provided by you for a product, app or service will only be used for the specific purpose of providing you with that product or service.

When you access our websites without an DeepVerge id or signing in, we will still collect some of this personal information in order to enable the websites to function properly.

COOKIES, WEB BEACON AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
As mentioned above, we collect information from your visits to our websites and your use of our DeepVerge services, apps and our products to help us gather statistics about usage and effectiveness, personalise your experience, tailor our interactions with you, and improve our products, apps and services.
What are cookies and why are cookies used
A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure website usage (such as number of visitors and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics visitors are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation or use and, as such, are not associated with any personal information, they are also used at times to personalise a known visitor’s experience of a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. Over time this information provides valuable insight to help improve the user experience.
When third parties present their products/services in a DeepVerge website, DeepVerge may produce aggregate anonymised information and share it with them to help understand how many users interacted or showed interest in their products/services.
Cookies are typically categorised as “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies. Session cookies help you navigate through the website efficiently, keeping track of your progression from page to page so that you are not asked for information you have already provided during the current visit, or information needed to be able to complete a transaction. Session cookies are stored in temporary memory and erased when the web browser is closed. Persistent cookies on the other hand, store user preferences for current and successive visits. They are written on your device’s hard disk, and are still valid when you restart your browser. We use persistent cookies, for example, to allow you to quickly sign in to our websites and for analytical purposes.
When visiting our websites or online services, you may have the possibility to set your preferences regarding cookies and other similar technologies by using the options and tools made available to you on your web browser. Using the cookie preferences does not result in deletion of cookies that are already on your device. You can delete cookies already on your device via the settings of your web browser.
You can generally express your privacy preferences regarding the use of most cookies and similar technologies through your web browser. Look under the heading “Tools” (or similar heading) in your particular browser for information about controlling cookies. In most instances you can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the option to decide whether to accept it or not. You can also generally set your browser to turn off cookies.
You also may be able to reset device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. The procedure for managing device identifiers is slightly different for each device. You can check the specific steps in the help or settings menu of your particular device.
You can opt out of seeing online interest-based advertising from participating companies through the Digital Advertising Alliance, the Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance or Appchoices (apps only).
Opting out does not mean you will not see advertising – it means you won’t see personalized advertising from the companies that participate in the opt-out programs. Also, if you delete cookies on your device after you opted out, you will need to opt-out again.
To allow you to share content on social media, some DeepVerge websites use social media plug-ins (e.g., Twitter™ “Share to Twitter” or LinkedIn™ “in” buttons). Depending on your social media account settings, we automatically receive information from the social media platform when you use the corresponding button on our websites.
Some features of DeepVerge websites and our services rely on the use of Google™ Maps API Cookies. Such cookies will be stored on your device.
Since cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our websites’ features we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you block, turn off or otherwise reject our cookies, some web pages may not display properly or you may not use any of our websites that require you to sign in.
Web beacons or other technologies
Some DeepVerge websites may also use web beacons or other technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on a number of pages across DeepVerge’s websites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our suppliers. These web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don’t want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages or use of these products, you can set your browser to turn off cookies or turn off cookies in the product itself, respectively. If you turn off cookies, web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages; however, they will not be associated with information otherwise stored in cookies.
When you visit DeepVerge websites, some or all of the following types of cookies may be set on your device.
|Essential website cookies||These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.|
|Analytics cookies||These cookies help us understand how our website is being used, how effective marketing campaigns are, and help us customize and improve our websites for you.|
|Advertising cookies||These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, selecting advertisements that are based on your interests and measuring the number of ads displayed and their performance, such as how many people clicked on a given ad.|
|Social networking cookies||These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our website through third-party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too.|
DeepVerge does not deliver third party online advertisements on our web sites but we advertise our products and services on others’ websites. Please familiarise yourself with those website operators’ or network advertisers’ privacy policies to understand their practices relating to advertising, including what type of information they may collect about your Internet usage.
Links to Non-DeepVerge Websites and Third-Party Applications
To allow you to interact with other websites on which you may have accounts (such as Facebook and other social media sites) or join communities on such sites, we may provide links or embed third-party applications that allow you to login, post content or join communities from our websites.
We may also provide you with general links to non-DeepVerge websites.
