All such email communications from Explorance will offer the option to opt-out of any similar notifications.
What is the lawful basis for using this information? The primary basis is known as “legitimate interests”, that is, we have a good and fair reason to use your data and we do so in ways which do not infringe on your rights and interests. The second basis is to support our contractual obligations with our customers.
How is your data kept secure? We use world-class software systems to securely store all information collected from our website and other sources related to Sales and Marketing.

What are your rights? In addition to the right to know how your data is used and who it is shared with (which is covered above), your rights include the right to know what personal information we have collected, the right to receive a copy of that data, the right to make corrections, and to request that it be deleted. For all such requests, please contact your account manager or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be happy to address any concerns you have and assist in any way we can.

Cookies are small text files placed on your computer which our products can retrieve later.
