The protection of your privacy is for us of highest importance. This Privacy Statement sets out the data protection practices carried out through the use of the Internet and any other electronic communications networks by Bitsens and its associated companies (all together “Bitsens”, “we” or “us”) when interacting with customers, vendors, business partners and others. Bitsens recognizes the importance of maintaining the privacy of personal information collected through these means.
We collect personal information that you voluntarily provide by filling out and submitting online forms concerning contact information for providing further information on our products or services, product flyers, white papers, event flyers, registration for newsletter, webinars, events and trainings, feedback on the website, or seeking employment.
Where we collect personal information directly from you, we will inform you about the purposes of the collection, the types of non-Agent third parties to which we will disclose this data and, as appropriate and required, the choices and the means we offer you for limiting the use and disclosure of your personal information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide personal information to Bitsens, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Bitsens uses the data for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. By Agent we mean any third party that uses personal information provided by Bitsens to perform tasks on behalf of or at the instruction of Bitsens.

Data We need to Share
We will only disclose personal information to other companies within our group of companies, government bodies and law enforcement agencies, successors in title to our business and suppliers we engage to process data on our behalf. In these circumstances we will share your personal information for purposes such as our legitimate business purposes and to comply with legal obligations. We do not sell or share any personal information with non-Agent third parties. We will obtain assurances from our Agents that they will safeguard personal information consistently with this Privacy Statement. Where we have knowledge that an Agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Privacy Statement, we will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure. Bitsens holds its agents accountable for maintaining the trust our customers place in the company through the use of documents such as Non-Disclosure Agreements.
Links to Other Web sites
This Privacy Statement applies only to data collected by Bitsens through an Bitsens website. Bitsens websites contain links to other sites that are not owned or administered by Bitsens. Please be aware that we do not control and, consequently, Bitsens is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other third party sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of every Web site you visit since their privacy practices may differ from those of Bitsens.
We maintain reasonable safeguards to protect against unauthorized disclosure, misuse, alteration, or destruction of the personal information you provide to us through the Bitsens websites. We protect data in many ways.
Please note, however, that perfect security does not exist on the Internet. Therefore, while we endeavour to protect your personal information, when data is transferred over the Internet it may potentially be accessed and used by unauthorised parties.
Updates to this Privacy Notice
From time to time we may update this Privacy Statement. When we do so, we will publish the changes on the Bitsens website. If you do not agree to these changes, please do not continue to use the Bitsens website.
