This is the Privacy Statement for Becrypt Limited, a company incorporated in England and Wales with company number 04328430, whose registered office is Artillery House, 11-19 Artillery Row, London, SW1P 1RT, England.

We recognise that many visitors and users of our web site are concerned about the information they provide to us and how we treat that information. This Privacy Statement, which may be updated from time to time, has been developed to address those concerns and to enable you to understand how we collect and use your personal information, including for example when you contact us, visit our web site, apply for a job or use our products and services.

By visiting this web site, you are accepting and consenting to our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Statement. Whenever you give us personal information, you are consenting to its collection and use in accordance with this Privacy Statement.


Information we may collect from you

We may collect and process the following data about you:

Information you give to us. This is collected on an individual basis. We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. This may include for example your name, company position, address, telephone number, mobile number, email address, credit card details, IP address and account usernames.

Information we collect about you. With regard to each of your visits to our website we may automatically collect the following information:

  • technical information, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your login information;
  • information collected through Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL) clickstream to, through and from our website (including date and time); products you viewed or searched for; page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page.

How do we use the information we collect?

We will collect that information and use it for solely the purposes for which you have provided it and in accordance with this Privacy Statement. That may include contacting you about our programs, products, features or services. If you no longer wish to receive newsletters or any other type of information from us, you may send us an email through our "Contact Us" link to change your preferences.

We use information collected on our web site in the aggregate to better understand your use of the web site and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. Every time you connect to the web site, we store a log of your visit that shows the unique number your machine uses when it is connected to the Internet - its IP address. This tells us what your machine has looked at, whether the page request was successful or not and which browser your machine used to view the pages. This data is used for statistical purposes as well as to help customize the user experience as you browse the web site. This helps us to understand which areas of the web site are of particular interest, which pages are not being requested, and how many people are visiting the web site in total. It also helps us and our partners to determine which products and services may be of specific interest to you. We may attempt to contact you through these details if necessary, including, without limitation, when you are using the wrong paths to access the web site or are breaching restrictions on the use of the web site. We may also use this information to block IP addresses where there is misuse use of the web site.

If you purchase or use our products or services, we may use your personal information and (where applicable) payment information for purposes which include but are not limited to:

  • verifying your credentials,
  • verifying your usage of the products and services in accordance with the terms and conditions of your agreement with us
  • providing training sessions for which you have registered,
  • providing maintenance and technical support,
  • providing information about product upgrades, updates and renewals,
  • generating logs, statistics and reports on service usage and service performance
  • developing and enhancing products and services
  • processing orders and generating billing information.

Certain products and services may include features that collect additional personal information for other purposes, as described in the applicable customer agreement. For detailed information, please refer to the applicable product or service description.

Becrypt Partner Portal

Our resellers and distributors may visit our Partner Portal web site. We may use the customer and prospect information provided on that web site in order to provide the products and services.

Job applicants

If you are making a job application or inquiry, you may provide us with a copy of your CV or other relevant information. We may use this information for the purpose of considering your application or inquiry. Except when you explicitly request otherwise, we may keep this information on file for future reference.

Market research

If you participate in surveys, we may use your personal information to carry out market research. This research is conducted for our internal business and training purposes and will improve our understanding of our users‘ demographics, interests and behaviour. This research is compiled and analysed on an aggregated basis and therefore does not individually identify any user.

Marketing and promotions

We (or our partners or other selected third parties acting on our behalf) may contact you from time to time in order to provide you with information about Becrypt products and services that may be of interest to you. You have the right to ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes, but if you do so, we may need to share your contact information with third parties for the limited purpose of ensuring that you do not receive marketing communications from them on our behalf.

Opting Out of Receiving Communications From Us

If you no longer wish to receive newsletters or any other type of information from us, you may send us an email through our "Contact Us" link to change your preferences. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases. In addition, please be aware that your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of our web site.

Data Security

We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorized access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk. If you have been given log-in details to provide you with access to certain parts of our web site (for example our Partner Portal), you are responsible for keeping those details confidential.

Disclosure of your information

Whenever we disclose personal information, we take all reasonable steps to ensure that it is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

In the event that we receive requests from government departments, agencies or other official bodies, we will only disclose your information if and to the extent that we believe we are legally required to do so. This may be upon receipt of a court order, warrant, subpoena or equivalent, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our web site, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this web site or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.

Becrypt is headquartered in England but is an international business with users in many countries across the world. When you give us personal information, it may be used, processed or stored anywhere in the world, including countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA").

Except as set out above, we will not disclose your personal information save where we need to do so in order to enforce our rights. We will not share your Personally Identifiable Information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

In the event that Becrypt sell or buy any business or assets, Becrypt may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets. If Becrypt or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, personal information held will be one of the transferred assets.
