You are not legally required to provide Celerium with your personal information described in this Privacy Policy. However, you might not be able to use our Websites or Services to their full extent if you do not provide us with certain data or if you object to our use of the data. Also, your data may be provided to us in the role of data processor by one of our customers, your employer. In such case, we take our instructions and directions from the customer (your employer).

B. Purpose for Collecting Data; Legal Basis for Processing your Personal Information.

We have provided the reasons why we collect your personal information above. Our legal basis for processing your personal information depends on the particular personal information and the context in which it was collected.

Typically, Celerium will collect personal information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information in order to perform our obligations under a contract with you or your employer, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

If we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), such interests will typically be for our legitimate commercial interests, to operate our Websites and/or Services, or to communicate with you as necessary to provide our products and services to you. These legitimate interests include improving our products, services and Websites; responding to your inquiries; performing marketing activities; and detecting or preventing illegal activities. There may be other legitimate interests that pertain to us and, if appropriate, we will provide those to you at the relevant time.

C. Transferring Your Data Outside of the EU or the EEA

Celerium’s principal place of business is in the United States of America. The EU generally considers that non-member countries do not afford the same level of protection that you enjoy in the EU, but Celerium still provides an adequate level of protection for your personal data, and as a California, USA based company, we have done so for a long time.

For Celerium customers that transfer personal data from the EU/EEA to the US as part of the Services, Celerium will incorporate the European Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses (commonly referred to as the Model Contracts) into its agreements with those customers. The Standard Contractual Clauses are a set of contract terms that have been approved by the European Commission as ensuring adequate protection for personal data transferred from the EU/EEA to non-EU/EEA countries, including the US.
