MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS TO YOU
When you register to participate in webinars or to receive newsletters or similar information on our products or services, we ask you to provide us with certain contact and other information.
When receiving a registration, we log and store the date/time of registration and the IP address the registration was received from. We would use this only for evidentiary purposes in case your contact details are used by an unauthorized party.
In addition, if you are located in a jurisdiction where a double opt-in procedure is used (e.g., Germany), we verify the authorized use of an email address by sending an email to such address asking for confirmation of the registration via a contained link. If and when the link is clicked on, we will automatically be notified that the registration has been confirmed from the email account initially used for the registration. Only upon such confirmation will the registration become effective and will we send newsletters or similar information to the confirmed email address.
When registering to receive newsletters or similar information, you explicitly declare your consent to our processing of your personal data for this purpose. You are under no obligation to provide such consent and, if you choose to do so nonetheless, you may withdraw your consent at any time, with future effect and for any or no reason by accessing Synopsys’ Subscriptions Center or by following the unsubscribe link contained in any email communication sent to you.
RECIPIENTS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We disclose your personal data to the following third parties for the following purposes, as required or permitted by applicable law:
|Who Is your Personal Data Disclosed To?||What Is the Purpose Underlying the Disclosure?|
|Wholly owned subsidiaries of Synopsys, Inc. located in the European Economic Area and Switzerland||To coordinate and improve local marketing and user support activities in the local jurisdiction|
|Third-party providers of web analytics and advertising solutions||To assist us in the operation or improvement of the Site and to enhance our products and services|
|Other third parties consistent with applicable legal requirements||To comply with legal obligations to which we are subject|
DATA TRANSFERS TO RECIPIENTS OUTSIDE OF THE EU/EEA
We and many of our affiliated companies and third-party service providers are located outside the European Economic Area in jurisdictions that are not subject to an unqualified adequacy decision by the EU Commission finding them to provide an adequate level of protection of personal data, essentially equivalent to that guaranteed within the EU.
However, to ensure an adequate level of protection of your personal data, we enter into data processing and data transfer agreements with our affiliated companies and third-party service providers outside of the European Economic Area that incorporate the provisions of the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the EU Commission or implement other appropriate safeguards with them. You can ask for a copy of such appropriate safeguards by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We have implemented appropriate retention periods for your personal data collected or otherwise processed on or through the Site as set forth in our records management policy. Personal data processed in the context of a contract with you will be retained by us for the term of the contract and for a reasonable time afterwards as might be required to determine and settle any related claims. Where our processing of your personal data is based on legitimate interests or the compliance with legal obligations, it will be deleted as soon as the underlying purpose has expired. Personal data processed based on your consent will be deleted if and when you withdraw such consent.
YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Subject to the conditions set out in the applicable law, you have the rights to (i) inquire whether and what kind of personal data we hold about you and how it is processed, and to access or request copies of such personal data, (ii) request the correction or supplementation of personal data about you that is inaccurate, incomplete or out-of-date in light of the purposes underlying the processing, or to (iii) obtain the erasure of personal data no longer necessary for the purposes underlying the processing, processed based on withdrawn consent, processed for legitimate interests that, in the context of your objection, do not prove to be compelling, or processed in non compliance with applicable legal requirements. In addition, you have, subject to the conditions set out in the applicable law, the rights to (iv) request us to restrict the processing of personal data in certain situations where you feel its processing is inappropriate, (v) object, in certain circumstances, to the processing of personal data for legitimate interests, and to (vi) request portability of personal data that you have actively or passively provided to us (which does not include data derived or inferred from the collected data), where the processing of such personal Data is based on consent or a contract with you and is carried out by automated means. In case of concerns, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent local data protection authority.
You may exercise the above mentioned rights of access, rectification, erasure, restriction, objection and data portability by contacting us at email@example.com.
YOUR PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA TO US
Your use of the Site and your provision of personal data to us in the process is purely voluntary on your part. Subject to your sole discretion, you can, at any point, stop using the Site or, where applicable, opt out of certain data processing operations as described in this Supplemental Statement. An exception applies if and to the extent that you want to enter into or perform a contract with us on or through the Site. In that case, providing us with your related personal information is necessary for us to be able to enter into the contract with or provide any contractual services to you.
