Privacy Statement

Through this privacy statement, VertiGIS LLC (hereinafter: “VertiGIS” or “we/our“) wishes to inform the person of whom it collects, uses and stores (in other words: processes) personal data through its website (the “Website“). These persons may include business contacts, vendors, directors, agents, prospects/customers and their representatives, employees and/or shareholders, as applicable. VertiGIS shall qualify as a data controller for such processing activities. In this statement, we use the word “you” to refer to anyone within the scope of this statement.

Currently, the Website’s personal data processing functionality is limited. This privacy statement only applies to the extent that personal data is actually processed via the Website.

Other websites, products and services offered by VertiGIS or its partners are subject to a separate privacy statement. This statement does not apply to such websites/products/services.

The personal data we collect
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as you. In relation to the Website, personal data is only collected when you provide it to us, or when we collect it from you in the course of your dealings with us, or in the course of your use of the Website. Such information may be collected through cookies placed on your device. To the extent that your prior consent is required to place cookies, you will be given the opportunity to consent before cookies are placed.

Depending on the processing activity, the information we process in relation to you may consist of:

    1. First and last name and/or any other information regarding your contact with us through our Website;
    2. Data regarding your equipment, such as an IP address;
    3. Data regarding your use of the Website.

In the future, it may be mandatory for users to provide certain personal data in order for us to be able to provide services through the Website, as applicable. In such event, if you do not provide the personal data which is marked as mandatory (where relevant), we may not be able to provide you with the relevant services.

How personal data may be accessed
Should personal data be processed, access to personal data relating to you is limited. It is VertiGIS’s policy that persons within the organization should only have access to personal data on a need-to-know basis.

In some cases we share your personal data with third parties. VertiGIS may share your personal data with:

These safeguards may include the execution of additional contracts based on EU model clauses to ensure that your personal data will be protected by standards which are equivalent to those that protect your personal data when it is in the EEA.

If you would like to obtain a copy of the safeguards implemented to protect your personal information when – as applicable – it is transferred to a recipient in a country outside the EEA that does not offer an adequate level of data protection, please contact .
