  • Vendors, Consultants and Other Service Providers. We may share your information with third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who provide information systems or who are working on our behalf and require access to your information to carry out that work, such as to provide customer support, quality assurance, etc. These service providers are authorized to use your personal information only to the extent necessary to assist SingleStore in providing SingleStore products or services.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of those third parties before connecting to or using their applications or services to learn more about their information and privacy practices.
  • Compliance with Laws. SingleStore may be required to disclose personal information to authorities, law enforcement agencies, government agencies, or legal entities. We may disclose information by law, litigation, or as a matter of national security to:a) comply with valid legal process, including subpoenas, court orders or search warrants, or as otherwise authorized or required by law;b) in the event of an emergency that threatens an individual's life, health, or security; orc) to the extent permitted by applicable law in special cases in which we believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate, identify, or take preventive measures or bring legal action against someone who may commit or cause harm, fraud, abuse, or illegal conduct, such as a threat of harm to you or anyone else, interference with our rights or property, or interference with U.S. homeland or national security or public safety anywhere in the world.

  • Marketing. In order to better understand our customers and to ensure we contact you on the products and services that you will care about we analyze pixel data from various websites hosting SingleStore advertisements. This data is then used for us to better understand our market and to focus our efforts on aligning our efforts with the people who want to hear more from us.

International Transfersinternational-transfers

Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you live. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country. Specifically, while our Website servers are located in the United States, and our affiliated companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information, we may process it in any of these countries.

However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

If we transmit personal information across national boundaries, we make reasonable efforts do so in compliance with any national laws that govern the cross-border transfer of information. If you require more information, please contact us using the contact details below.


Data Retentiondata-retention

We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so or to comply with applicable legal requirements.

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.


Opt-Out; Notice to California Residentsopt-out

SingleStore allows you to opt-out of receiving email advertisements. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users of our site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, or to opt out of such email advertisements or third-party disclosures, please send an email to DPO@singlestore.com.


Securitysecurity

Security of all information is of the utmost importance for SingleStore. We use technical and physical safeguards, including industry-standard encryption technology, to protect the security of your personal information from unauthorized disclosure. We also take reasonable efforts to ensure that only authorized people and third parties have access to personal information. Nevertheless, no service is completely secure and security measures cannot prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of personal information; we are not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such incidents to the fullest extent permitted by law. Where required under law, we will notify you of any such loss, misuse or alteration of personal information that may affect you so that you can take the appropriate actions for the protection of your rights. SingleStore also reviews its security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods.

We also require that our third party service providers and channel partners agree to keep all information we share with them confidential, and to use the information only to perform their obligations pursuant to the agreements we have in place with them. These third party service providers and channel partners are expected to maintain privacy and security protections that are consistent with SingleStore’s privacy and information security policies. While we provide these third parties with no more information than is necessary to perform the function for which we engaged them, any information that you provide to these third parties independently of SingleStore is subject to their respective privacy policies and practices.

Overall, SingleStore is committed to information security and is audited by accredited and independent third parties for that effect. More information about our current certifications can be found at singlestore.com/security.
