The Way We Share Information

We share your personal data with the following parties:

–  Service Providers and processors. We engage third party vendors, from time to time, including: business partners, suppliers, agents and contractors (such as IT service providers and hosting providers) and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or to provide services on our behalf.

In providing their services, they will access, receive, maintain or otherwise process personal data on our behalf. For example, our agents and contractors may assist us in fulfilling requests for information, receiving and sending communications, updating marketing lists, analysing data, providing IT support, including hosting services, and providing other support services. Our service providers will only use your information to the extent necessary to perform their functions and our contracts with these service providers do not permit the use of your personal data for their own (marketing) purposes.

We also disclose your personal data if disclosure is required by law or in the context of an investigation, regulatory requirement, judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on us, or to protect the rights or safety of the website, us or our affiliated companies.

Our Commitment To Data Security

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and provide for the correct use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Personal data you provide will be secured in accordance with industry standards and technology. Your personal data is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of people, who have special access rights and are required to keep the information confidential. Since the internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to PROS. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, copied, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, electronic or managerial safeguards.

Our website users are responsible for maintaining the security of any password, user ID or other form of authentication involved in obtaining access to password protected or secure areas of our web site. In order to protect you and your information, we may suspend your use of our website, without notice, pending an investigation, if we suspect that any security breach has taken place.

Data Processing in the U.S. and Globally

PROS is located in the United States and our website is hosted in the United States. We, and our third-party service providers acting on our behalf, process any personal data collected about EEA visitors via our website or EEA customers in the United States and other worldwide locations. To comply with European data protection regulations on the transfer of personal data outside of the EEA, we take steps to safeguard European privacy rights by asking that our suppliers undertake a valid mechanism to give adequate protection to such personal data transferred outside of the EEA. For example, our suppliers use mechanisms approved by the European Commission, such as Binding Corporate Rules (for more information, please see http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/international-transfers/binding-corporate-rules/bcr_cooperation/index_en.htm), standard contractual clauses, or, for those suppliers based in the US, registration under the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework Principles (for more information please see https://www.privacyshield.gov/list).

Within the PROS international group of companies, in order to supply you with services you have requested and for other lawful purposes, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data from one PROS group company to another PROS group company. The PROS group companies have signed standard contractual clauses (in the form approved by the European Commission) to provide for such circumstances where EEA personal data is transferred to a location outside of the EEA. For further information about where PROS group companies are located please see the PROS contact page.

Where you are based in the EEA, you are entitled, upon request, to receive a copy of the relevant contract (such as standard contractual clauses or Binding Corporate Rules) showing that appropriate safeguards have been taken to protect your personal data during such transfer.

We will generally retain your personal data for as long as it is required for purposes for which the data were collected.
