Personal Information With respect to EU data subjects, “personal information,” as used in this Privacy Policy, is equivalent to “personal data” as defined in the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

How Information Is Collected, Used, and Disclosed We may collect certain personal information for various purposes, and we may disclose such information to various third parties. For more information on what types of personal information is collected, from what sources, for which purposes, and how that information is disclosed, please see section above titled “How We Use Your Personal Information.”

Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), or otherwise subject to the GDPR, Enso’ legal basis for collecting and using the Personal Information described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Information we collect and the specific context in which we collect it. In addition, we process Personal Information with the principle of data minimization in mind. This means that we limit ourselves to the minimum amount of personal information which is needed to achieve the particular purpose for which we process the Personal Information. Below are some examples of the purposes for which Personal Information may be processed.

We may process your Personal Information because:

The processing is necessary to provide the services and features you have requested.

The processing is necessary to perform a contract or service with you.

The processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of our business, such as fraud prevention, information security, or to comply with the law.

You have provided consent for us to do so.

Retention of Personal Information

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Security We have adopted reasonable and appropriate security procedures to help protect against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access to the information you provide to us. Please note, however, that no data transmission or storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to the Site and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your information.

Cross-Border Data Transfers Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to—and maintained on—computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside of the United States and choose to provide information to us, please be aware that your personal data will be transferred to, processed, and stored in the United States. Data protection laws in the U.S. may be different from those in your country of residence. We transfer your personal information out of the EEA only upon your consent. You consent to the transfer of your information, including personal information, to the U.S. as set forth in this Privacy Policy by visiting our Site.

Transfers Made by Our Third Party Service Providers When we record your personal data on our Website host, this may involve a transfer of your personal data to another country, if the server upon which our Website is hosted is based in another country or countries.

If that is the case, our third party service provider, Ghost.org, has implemented adequate safeguards to ensure the protection of your privacy and fundamental rights and freedoms. For more information, we encourage you to visit Ghost.org/dpa/ to visit the GDPR Data Processing Agreement.

Transfers to Third Parties Courts, tribunals, government authorities and related parties or counterparties with whom we share personal data, third-party vendors and business partners are in some cases located outside the EU. Unless the recipients are located in countries that have been deemed adequate by the European Commission, we put in place data transfer agreements based on the applicable European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses to protect the personal data so transferred. In certain cases, we may rely on statutory derogations for international data transfers.

Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of the EEA. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your Personal Information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
