Commercially Available Information. Alachisoft may also collect information from commercially available sources but only where we are legally permitted to collect the information. Such information may include names, addresses, email addresses, and demographic data. The information Alachisoft collects from these commercial sources may be combined and cross-referenced with information collected through the Services. We use this information for communications purposes to provide direct marketing materials for our business customers or prospects.
From time to time, we may also ask our partners or clients to voluntarily provide us with the email addresses of contacts of other organizations, so they too can benefit from the various products and services offered by Alachisoft and Alachisoft's trusted partners. Where we do, we will ask that they have the permission to pass on these details to us.

To Serve You. We use the information we collect, including Personal Information, to respond to any request or query directed to us (for example through web forms or email), to provide you/your organization with our products and Services and to manage our relationship with you.

Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation
Alachisoft will use Personal Information only for the purpose of or in ways compatible with the purposes for which it was collected.
We keep information we need to provide our Services only so long as we have a valid business purpose, in accordance with applicable law and our client agreements. For example, to provide you with Services you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your Personal Information, we will delete it. If immediate deletion is not possible (for example, because your Personal Information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your Personal Information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible or unless as otherwise required by law.
We include an “unsubscribe” hyperlink in Alachisoft marketing emails for those users who wish to stop receiving email communication from Alachisoft. The hyperlink will connect to one of our websites, which will confirm the email address that has been automatically unsubscribed and will no longer receive emails from Alachisoft.
We take steps to ensure that information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Notice which include appropriate technical and organizational measures. These measures are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing of your Personal Information. However, neither the Internet nor any form of electronic storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information provided to us.
Alachisoft does not sell or rent your personal information to anyone. We may, however, release personal information when we believe that it is required to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Alachisoft, our users, or others.
We acknowledge individuals' rights in relation to their personal data under application data protection laws.
In addition, if EU data protection laws apply to your Personal Information, you may have the following data protection rights which you may exercise at any time by using the contact details provided under the “How to Contact Us" section below:
We will respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
Please note, if you are an individual whose personal information Alachisoft processes as a "data processor", for example to provide services on behalf of its clients, you must contact the relevant data controller of your Personal Information in order to exercise your rights. This might be one of our clients or one of our clients' customers.
