We recognize the need for appropriate protections and management of your personal information that you provide to us. BRAINDOK has therefore established this Privacy Statement to assist you to understand what personal information we collect and how that personal information is used. This Privacy Statement applies to data collected by BRAINDOK LLC through the braindok.com website and other webpages which we operate and in which we post a direct link to this statement.

On braindok.com web sites you can order products or services, register products, request information, subscribe to marketing or support materials, register to a secure extranet site to obtain access to product information, support, services and training, or apply for jobs at BRAINDOK. We may collect information about individuals such as their name, address, telephone number or email address, user IDs and passwords, billing and transaction information, credit card or other financial information and contact preferences. Personal information collected online may be supplemented with information you provide to BRAINDOK through other BRAINDOK services, as well as other sources such as trade shows or seminars, and other data appending methods such as spot tags, tracking and cookies as referenced below.

How BRAINDOK use personal information?

BRAINDOK will use personal information to provide customers, business partners and website visitors with information and services and to help us better understand your needs and interests. Specifically, we use your information to help you complete a transaction or order, to communicate with you, to deliver products/services to you, to bill you for products/services you purchased, and to provide ongoing service and support. Occasionally we may use your information to contact you to complete surveys that we use for marketing and quality assurance purposes.

With whom BRAINDOK shares personal information?

BRAINDOK contracts with third party service providers and suppliers (including distributors and resellers) to deliver certain products, services and customer solutions. BRAINDOK may share personal information with its service providers and suppliers to the extent needed to deliver the service or respond to requests for information on products or services or otherwise support the customers' business needs. Third party service providers and suppliers receiving personal information are expected to apply the same level of privacy protection as contained in this Privacy Statement. They are required to keep confidential the personal information received from BRAINDOK and may not use it for any purpose other than as originally intended.
Some BRAINDOK services may be co-branded and offered in conjunction with another company. If you register for or use such services, both BRAINDOK and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services.
Except as described in this Privacy Statement, BRAINDOK is not in the business of selling or renting your information to others and will not share personally identifiable information with other third parties without your permission, unless required by, or in connection with, law enforcement action, subpoena or other litigation, or applicable law or in connection with a prospective or actual sale, merger, transfer or other reorganization of all or parts of our business, or within the group of affiliated BRAINDOK companies, if and to the extent legally permissible.
We reserve the right to fully use and disclose any information that is not in personally identifiable form.

Personal information given to BRAINDOK may be transferred across state and country borders for data consolidation, storage and simplified information management.

Links to Non-BRAINDOK Websites and Third Parties

The BRAINDOK web sites may provide links to third-party web sites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the BRAINDOK website. BRAINDOK does not control those sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from BRAINDOK policy. We do not endorse or make any representations about third party web sites. The personal data you choose to give to unrelated third parties is not covered by the BRAINDOK Privacy Statement. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company before submitting your personal information. Some third party companies may choose to share their personal data with BRAINDOK; that sharing is governed by that third party company's privacy policy.

NOTICE AND SCOPE OF SAFE HARBOR CERTIFICATION

BRAINDOK, Inc., ("BRAINDOK") adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles published by the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Safe Harbor Principles”) with respect to personal data relating to residents in the European Economic Area and Switzerland (“EEA/CH Data”) that we receive in the United States from our subsidiaries, enterprise customers, consumer customers, distributors, suppliers and other business partners in Europe. In this notice, we explain how we collect and use EEA/CH Data except data relating to employees of our subsidiaries (which is covered by a separate notice that we distribute to such employees). Additional information on the Safe Harbor Principles and BRAINDOK’s scope of participation is available at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor.

Categories of EEA/CH Data:

BRAINDOK develops application software and delivers solutions for mobile business infrastructure and retail customers. We receive mostly business-related information from Europe, but also contact information related to individual representatives of customers, distributors, resellers, suppliers, and other business partners (including, without limitation, names, job titles, addresses, work phone numbers, work email addresses, etc.) in connection with commercial and corporate transactions and other business relationships. Some of our customers are not incorporated and may provide their home address when they acquire software licenses from our authorized online store or when they register their products and service subscriptions with us. BRAINDOK is in process of setting whistleblower plan and later may receive and process EEA/CH Customer Data in connection with its whistleblower hotline including details of the reporter, the data subject of the report, the alleged misconduct, investigation, and any misuse of the whistleblower hotline program.

Purposes

BRAINDOK plans to collect and use EEA/CH Data for purposes of managing, improving, expanding and communicating regarding software license sales, supply, distribution and customer relationships, delivering software, services and related information (including, without limitation, promotional information on new products), managing its whistleblower hotline program, and conducting related tasks for legitimate business purposes and corporate development opportunities.

Transfer

BRAINDOK plan to share EEA/CH Data with corporate affiliates. We may also make EEA/CH Data available to service providers and other contractors, which process EEA/CH Data on our behalf and subject to confidentiality restrictions. We may also share EEA/CH Data with other third parties for the purposes for which we receive the data (e.g., performance of contractual obligations) and as required or permitted by law.

Choice

Recipients of marketing e-mails in Europe may opt-out of receiving further e-mail marketing communications from BRAINDOK by sending an unsubscribing request at info@braindok.com or by following opt-out instructions that are contained in each marketing e-mail. Requests to opt-out of transfers to third parties will also be considered, but limitations on data sharing may make it difficult or impossible for BRAINDOK to provide certain requested services. BRAINDOK may also have to disclose EEA/CH Customer Data where it is legally required to disclose (e.g., under statutes, contracts or otherwise) or the disclosure is permitted by law and BRAINDOK has a legitimate business interest in such disclosure.

Access and Review

Residents of the EEA and Switzerland whose EEA/CH Data BRAINDOK controls may request access to, and the opportunity to correct, amend, or delete that information where it is inaccurate. To submit such requests or raise any other questions, please contact the BRAINDOK Safe Harbor Contact as described below. BRAINDOK reserves the right to take appropriate steps to authenticate an applicant’s identity, charge an adequate fee before providing access and deny requests, except as required by the Safe Harbor Principles.
