Below you will find the Promethean Privacy Policy beginning with Promethean’s General Privacy Terms applicable to all Promethean Services (as defined below).

  1. Promethean’s General Privacy Terms:

This Privacy Policy applies to all products, services, websites and applications offered by Promethean Limited, Promethean, Inc. and all Promethean companies controlled by or under common control with Promethean Limited (collectively, “Promethean” or “Promethean Group”).  We refer to all Promethean products, services, websites and applications collectively as the “Services” within this Privacy Policy.

The privacy of individuals that we interact with has always been and continues to be of the utmost importance to Promethean. Therefore, we have developed this Privacy Policy to clearly describe how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store Personal Information. Please read the following carefully. Questions, comments, and requests regarding this Privacy Policy should be addressed to privacy@prometheanworld.com.

By using any Promethean Service, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy as well as any additional Privacy Policy provisions that apply specifically to the Promethean Service that you are using (for Privacy Policy provisions applicable to specific Promethean services please see section 9 below).  If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or the Privacy Policy provisions that apply specifically to a Promethean Service, please do not use the Promethean Service.  In addition, please note that in order to use any Promethean Service, you authorize Promethean to transfer your personal information across national borders and to other countries where Promethean and its partners operate, including the United States. The privacy protections and rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be equivalent to those in your country. We will only transfer your personal information to these countries when we determine the transfer to be necessary to provide the Service and we will take steps intended to ensure that your personal information continues to receive appropriate and adequate safeguards and protections.

The terms “we,” “us” and “our” as used in the Privacy Policy refer to Promethean.

“Personal Information” as used in this Privacy Policy means any identifier or information that, directly or indirectly, can be used to identify a natural person.

We promise to process your Personal Information in a manner that is always lawful, fair and transparent and we will always provide you with choice and control over the use of your Personal Information in accordance with prevailing laws and obligations.

This information is aggregated and used to help us understand which parts of the Service are of the most interest and to improve users’ experiences on or with our Services.

For many of the same reasons as outlined above, we may use a cookie file, which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. These files help us to improve our websites and deliver better and more personalised services. Cookies enable us to:

However, if you select this setting, you may be unable to access certain parts of our websites or Services. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our Service. To understand the cookies we use, please review the Cookies Policy applicable to the Service that you are visiting.  A link to the applicable Cookie Policy is available on each of our Services.

  1. Where We Store Your Personal Information

We maintain servers around the world and your Personal Information may be processed on servers located outside of the country where you live. Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. We always work to comply with laws applicable to your Personal Information and we will apply the protections described in this Privacy Policy to your Personal Information irrespective of where your Personal Information may be processed by Promethean.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of the data that you transmit to any Promethean Service. Any transmission is, therefore, at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

  1. Disclosure of Your Information
  • Except as provided for herein, we will not sell or share Personal Information with third parties for marketing purposes or advertisements unless you give us your consent to do so.
  • We may share your Personal Information with certain trusted third-party companies and individuals to perform tasks on our behalf, but strictly for the purpose of carrying out their work for us, for example, to help us provide the website, to enhance the website, to increase the website’s functionality and user friendliness, to provide customer support, to improve your experience on the website, to respond to your inquiries or questions, or to provide you with information regarding our products or services. Unless we tell you differently, these trusted third-party companies do not have any right to use your Personal Information beyond what is necessary to assist us with providing you the best possible service. To the extent we share Personal Information with any third party, we require them to comply with the requirements of a data processor under GDPR.
  • We may disclose your Personal Information if Promethean or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case Personal Information held by Promethean will be included among the transferred assets.
  • We may disclose your Personal Information if Promethean is required by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that, for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate; and
  • We may disclose your Personal Information if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or to protect our operations or users.
  1. Children

We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children. In addition, in the countries that we offer services where we collect the personal information of children we comply with the applicable laws regarding the collection of the personal information of children. For example, in the United States, we do not knowingly collect, use, or process Personal Information from children under the age of 13 without verifiable parental consent. In certain European Union countries, we do not knowingly collect, use or process Personal Information from children under the age of 16 without verifiable parental consent.  In other countries, we do not knowingly collect, use or process Personal Information from children at or under the age at which parental consent is required according to the laws applicable in those countries. If we ever learn that we have collected the Personal Information of a child without parental consent when parental consent is required, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.  If you know that we have inadvertently collected any Personal Information about a child without the required parental consent, please contact us at privacy@prometheanworld.com.

  1. Do Not Track (DNT)

Promethean does not track its users over time or across third party websites to provide targeted advertising, and therefore, does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals.

  1. Links to Other Sites

Our Services may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers, affiliates or other third parties. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies, and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
