Design8 is distributor of 3D software and we deliver training and support to our much valued customers. In essence, we deal with three parties:
We acknowledge that the GDPR is targeted towards natural persons, not organisations. Design8 operates primarily business to business, so we register mainly company information. Often we deal with natural persons who act on behalf of an organisation. You may well understand that in such cases the registered information can hardly be personal nor privacy sensitive. However, sometimes we register personal email addresses and we deliver software to natural persons, mainly being students and teachers.
Also we acknowledge that we mainly register data of paying customers to whom we deliver services. In those cases the registration of data is part of a business agreement, which makes this registration perfectly legal and necessary to conduct good business practices.
Finally we state that the data registered by us is hardly riskful personal information. We mainly link license data to contact data and technical information (e.g. the type of computer and operating system being used). please read further where we clarify this. We never collect more data than is absolutely necessary and we don’t follow nor profile people.
|Personal Data||More Specific||Reason||We share with|
Street / P.O.
|When we send an invoice, then by law it needs to be absolutely clear to all tax companies involved who the debitor is.||Our Accountant|
|We find it important to know in which regions our software is being used for statistical and support reasons. In case of support we will be able to direct you to the nearest possible reseller. In case of problems like software abuse or unpaid bills we need to be able to locate users.||Our suppliers.|
|Other Contact Details||
|We find it important to know who to address at an organization to speed up important communications about license statuses, options and consequences.||Our suppliers.|
|We find it important to approach our customers in a personal and correct manner, so we record your sexe to adjust our opening words accordingly.||Nobody.|
Next to these data we also log non-personal data, such as computer platform, industry & branch, products purchased and the reseller where these licenses were purchased. We don’t regard these data as being personal yet necessary to conduct proper business and service..
Upon ordering a license or training with us directly you provide us your data, of which some may be personal.
In case of you wanting to download and try software, view a webinar or visit us at a trade show, or simply because you want us to keep you informed, you usually fill out a form with your data consenting that we may contact you.
|Reseller||Upon ordering a license or training with one of our resellers they provide your data to us, of which some may be personal.|
|Supplier||You may consent for our suppliers to hand over your data to us to help and inform you in your own language, currency and time zone.|
When changes apply to a product which is relevant to you, such as a price increase or the release of a new or additional version of the software you use, then we see it as good and professional business practice, and in your interest, to notify you in a fast and convenient manner.
When you call upon us for technical support, then we need to see exactly which products and versions you use, in which environment you use them and where you purchased these items.
Finally, our relationship is strictly business and based on a paid agreement, and as such we all have our responsibilities. You can read about these in our General Terms and in the License Agreements that you, when you are over 16 years of age, or your parent or guardian consent to before installing / starting the software.
Software not being a physical product makes it hard to compare to anything else you buy like e.g. a car. A car by nature cannot be in two places at the same time and belongs to you. A software license on the other hand is a granted use to a person (stand alone) or organization (network) and is able to be used at several locations at the same time. Also against your will, and that is why it is important to link you to your license and that we are able to identify you. The latter also is important to determine if you are entitled to e.g. a free upgrade or promotion, and student or teacher license.
You may protest the processing of your personal data by us at all times, see below.
