Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which is available to us while Users are using the Service.

The Personal Information is collected from the details the Users provide when Users wish to contact us or register to receive the Services, which requires among others: name, email address and phone number.

·       In addition, The Company may collect certain information based on User’s configuration of the Services, such as, activity on the cloud by a certain workstation, which may be connected to a certain Users’s personnel.

c.     In addition, The Company may publish open positions in the Company via its website, Facebook or Linkedin page. In connection with this opportunity, we collect information that is provided to us by the job candidates (“Candidates”), when they apply to any of the open positions published by us, by e-mail, or otherwise.

For avoidance of doubt, any Non-Personal Information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists.

We do not collect any Personal Information from you or related to you without your approval, which is obtained, inter alia, through your active acceptance of the Terms and the Privacy Policy.

TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU PROVIDE TO US ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION IN CONNECTION WITH ANY THIRD PARTY, INCLUDING ANY OF YOUR PERSONNEL YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE TO RECEIVE AND HEREBY REPRESENT AND UNDERTAKE TO HAVE RECEIVED THE CONSENT, AUTHORITY, PERMISSION AND APPROVAL OF SUCH PERSON AND PROVIDED THEM WITH SUFFICIENT DISCLOSURES, TO ALLOW THE USE OF SUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION, AND TO ALLOW ALCIDE TO ACCESS, STORE, COLLECT, ANALYZE AND PROCESS SUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION AS DETAILED HEREIN
