This section describes how we collect and use that information. This includes an overview of the type of information that we collect directly and automatically, the types of information that we receive from other sources and why we collect that information. 

Information That You Provide to Us. 


We will collect certain information from when you engage with us in connection with a business relationship and when you purchase a service from us or provide a service to us. The information may include company specific information and business contact details such as name, job title, business mailing address, email address and or telephone number etc. This information is collected by pharosIQ for business relationship purposes and also to perform the service contract we have in place.

Information That We or Third Parties collect automatically

In some countries including countries in the EU, this information may be considered Personal Information under data protection laws.

Information we receive from other Sources 

We may also combine, merge, and/or enhance the information we collect about you with information collected from third parties such as other web-based and mobile networks, exchanges and websites (“Partners “) or our clients. 

This information may include hashed identifiers derived from other information such as email addresses, mobile device IDs, demographic or interest data (like your industry, employer, company size, job title or department) and content viewed or actions taken on a Third-Party Site to help make the ads served to an End User more relevant while limiting exposure to less relevant ads. 

As part of our marketing services, we may receive business contact lists from our clients to use as part of a marketing campaign. This data is only used for the client providing the information and in accordance with the client’s instructions. From time to time, we may also obtain information from the reception of a business which may include business contact information (e.g. your name, mailing address, telephone number or email address) and professional information (e.g. your job title, department or job role).
