Typically, the personal data you give us may include name, business affiliation, business address, phone number, and email address, and any personal details required to respond to or resolve any enquiries or complaints.

We also collect IP address, log files and other usage statistics as described below.

More specifically, when you visit our Services, our server automatically collects certain browser or device generated information, which may in some cases constitute personal data, including but not limited to:

De-identified Data. We may de-identify and aggregate certain data we collect such that the data no longer identifies or can be linked to a particular customer or an individual data subject, subject to the terms of any applicable customer agreements. We may use this data to improve our Services, analyze trends, publish market research, and for other marketing, research or statistical purposes, and we may disclose such data to third parties.

As a provider of Services, we receive, process and store certain information, including personal data, on behalf of our customers, which are businesses. In the normal course of using the Services and receiving support, our customers input electronic data into our systems, which may include personal data.

2. How We Use Data

Use of Personal Data We Collect on Our Own Behalf
The following is an overview of how we use personal data that we process as a data controller. When we use the terms “data controller” and “data processor” in this notice, we mean those terms as defined under applicable European data protection laws. Additional details on how we process your personal data may be provided to you in a separate notice or contract.

Our processing (i.e., use) of your personal data is justified on one or more legal bases:

We use the personal data we collect to:

Disclosure of Personal Data. PROS is a global group of companies and we may share personal data with our affiliated businesses as part of our business operations and administration of the Services. We may also appoint third party service providers (who will operate under our instructions) to assist us in providing Services to you, in conducting and managing our business, or in managing and improving the Services. PROS may share your personal data with these affiliates and third parties to perform services that they have been engaged by PROS to perform on our behalf, subject to appropriate contractual restrictions and security measures.

We also may disclose personal data:

Your Rights. Depending on your country of residence, applicable laws may entitle you to some or all of the following rights in respect of your personal data:

In addition to the above rights, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to any processing of your personal data that we have justified on the basis of a legitimate interest, including profiling (as opposed to your consent, or to perform a contract with you). You also have the right to object at any time to any processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, including profiling for marketing purposes. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local supervisory authority for data protection.

Please contact us to exercise these rights. Please note that we may request proof of identity and we reserve the right to charge a fee where permitted by law (for example, if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive). We will endeavor to respond to your request within all applicable timeframes. If you contact us regarding personal data for which we are a data processor, we will attempt to refer your request to the data controller for your personal data.

Use of Personal Data We Collect on Behalf of Our Customers

In our capacity as a service provider, we process personal data at the direction of our customers. We may access personal data in accordance with our agreement with the relevant customer in order to provide the Services, prevent or address service or technical problems, respond to support issues, respond to customer’s instructions or as required by law. PROS is a data processor for all such personal data, which is owned and controlled by our customers who are the data controllers.

Subprocessors. We use subprocessors to perform on our behalf certain technical and administrative functions required in the provision of the Services. A list of PROS subprocessors, and more information about how we use subprocessors, is located on our customer portal, PROS Connect.

Microsoft is a subprocessor when we provide certain of our Services. Under the terms of certain of our agreements with Microsoft, any personal data provided to the Services and processed by Microsoft will be processed according to the Microsoft privacy and security terms available at https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/servicecenter and at http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9840733.

Processing of Data Outside of the Country of Collection. If PROS or its subprocessors process personal data of our EEA or Swiss customers in a country outside of the EEA or Switzerland, respectively, without an “adequate level of protection”, as defined in applicable data protection laws, PROS will enter into Standard Contractual Clauses (or such variation as required by applicable data protection laws) to ensure that personal data will be transferred in compliance with applicable data protection law.

3. General

Retention of Your Personal Data

We apply a general rule of keeping personal data only for as long as required to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. However, in some circumstances we may retain personal data for other periods of time (for example, where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax or accounting requirements). In specific circumstances, we may also retain your personal data for longer periods of time corresponding to a statute of limitation, so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges. We may also retain your personal data for longer periods of time if required under a contract with you.

Security

Data security is very important to us. We maintain a comprehensive, written information security program that contains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to prevent unauthorized access to customer data and other confidential information. In addition, we maintain the following certifications: SOC2 Type 2 (since 2014); ISO 27001 (since 2017) and CSA STAR (assessment available upon request). We provide additional information about our security measures in the documentation that our customers use to subscribe for certain of our Services.
