CENTRL Inc (“we”, “us”, or “our”) is headquartered in Mountain View, California and provides various business-to-business software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) technology products and solutions to companies, advisory and consulting firms, and other business and commercial entities around the world (“customers”). Our customers, partners, vendors, visitors to our websites, employees, job applicants, and others may provide us with certain personal and other information. We are committed to protecting the confidentiality and security of any personal information we collect, use, store, or share, whether we are acting as a data controller or data processor. Our obligations, if any, to certain individuals (“data subjects”) regarding their personal information may, however, differ depending on whether we are acting as a data owner (“data controller”) or third-party vendor (“data processor”). Due to the nature of our business, we act primarily as a data processor. This means we act on the instructions of the data controller.
For purposes of this policy, “personal information” refers to information such as your full first name and last name, your title, your telephone number and email address, and other information we may request from you to help identify you or that you voluntarily choose to share with us. This Policy does not apply to personal information that may be included in the material, information, or content such as files, documents, email messages, recordings, chat logs, transcripts, and similar records that we may maintain on our customers’ behalf or that our customers may upload to their accounts with us in connection with their use of our Service (collectively referred to as “Business Content Data”).
- CENTRL as a Data Processor: We act as a data processor in providing Services to our customers that act as data controllers for any personal information they may collect from their customers, employees, or others and that we may process in connection with providing our Services to our customers. In order for us to provide our Services to our customers, we may need to collect certain information from individual employees of our customers or other individual users of our Services that may identify that user as an individual in order to provide that user with access to the applicable Service, as requested by our customer. All of this user information is collectively referred to as “Business User Data” and we process such Business User Data, including any personal information which may be included therein, solely for the purposes of providing our Services to our customers and in accordance with the written or other instructions of our customers pursuant to our Master Subscription Agreement, Terms of Service for Guests, Acceptable Use Policy, Data Processing Addendum, and/or any similar agreements between us and our customers.
- CENTRL as a Data Controller: We may, on occasion, act as a data controller and collect personal information from you outside of a business-to-business relationship or transaction when you voluntarily choose to provide this information to us in various circumstances, as noted below. We may also collect, use, store, or share personal information from applicants for employment, our employees, and former employees.
