Effective Date: September 24, 2016 Last Modified: March 3, 2017
This website, located at www.caradigm.com, is operated by Caradigm USA LLC ("Caradigm"). This Privacy Statement applies to personally identifiable information you provide on or through this website, and describes the types of personally identifiable information we collect, how we may use the information and with whom we may share it.
Caradigm recognizes that the EU has established strict protections regarding the handling of EU personally identifiable information, including requirements to provide adequate protection for EU personally identifiable information transferred outside of the EU.
To provide adequate protection for certain EU personally identifiable information received by us, we have elected to self-certify to the EU-US privacy shield framework administered by the US Department of Commerce (“Privacy Shield”). In the context of an onward transfer, Caradigm has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. This means that Caradigm remains liable under the Privacy Shield principles if our agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with these principles, unless Caradigm can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
Information We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information
Caradigm respects your privacy. Caradigm, its affiliates and third party service providers will collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, e-mail address, address or telephone number, only when you voluntarily submit it to us either through our website or through any other means, such as in connection with the following:
- Sales and/or demonstration inquiry form
- Partnering inquiry form
- Blog comment submission
- Job opportunity inquiry form or submission of job application
- Newsletter and email alerts request form
- Online campaigns
- Webinar registration form
- Contact Us form
- Other voluntary submission forms posted on our website from time to time
- telephone, email or other form of communication
The personally identifiable information you provide will be used for the purposes for which you supplied it to us, and for such other purposes that we describe in this Privacy Statement. We also may use the personally identifiable information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection. Caradigm, its affiliates or its third party service providers may refer to the submitted information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We may also use that information to contact you from time to time. You will have the option to opt-out at any time from any marketing communications, or to request we correct or remove personally identifiable information you provide to us from our database, by emailing us with your request at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will honor your request to opt out within a reasonable time after receiving the request. We will modify or remove information in response to your request when required by law and in certain other circumstances. Before Caradigm is able to correct any inaccuracies or delete any information, however, we may ask you to verify your identity and to provide other details to help us to respond to your request.
Public content includes any information you submit to Caradigm on message boards, blogs, or other community features that are accessible by general visitors and other users. This information is public content because people do not need a password to access or view this content on our site. Prior to allowing you to post on our community feature, you may be required to submit your name and contact information, which will be treated as personally identifiable information as stated above, unless you choose to include such information directly in your public posting.
We collect certain information automatically when you visit this website. This information tells us such things as how many users visited our website and the pages accessed. We also may use third-party website analytics tools that collect information about visitor traffic on our websites. By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor our website to our visitors. We may collect this information either through “cookie” technology, “web beacons” or links, as explained below. In addition, we may use certain technologies to determine whether you've opened an e-mail or clicked on a link contained in an e-mail.
- Cookies - Like many companies, we use browser cookies on this website. Browser cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We use browser cookies to tell us, for example, whether you’ve visited us before or if you’re a new visitor and to help us identify website features in which you may have the greatest interest. Browser cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular website. The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new browser cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new browser cookie, and how to disable existing browser cookies. Remember though, without browser cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our website features.
- Web Beacons - Certain pages on our website contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, the information in cookies set by the third party. We use log files to store the data that is collected through web beacons. Caradigm also uses third party web beacons to help track how our website is being used and which links are being clicked. These web beacons are provided by Microsoft and other third party tracking tools. With both cookies and web beacon technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address. We may however contact an organization regarding Caradigm products.
Information We Share
We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information about our website visitors, except as described here. We may share information provided by our visitors to Caradigm.com with our affiliates and third party service providers we have retained to perform services on our behalf. These affiliates and third party service providers are restricted from using or disclosing the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) to law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use personal information you have provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
Information We Transfer
We may transfer the personal information we collect on this website to other countries where we do business, but we will do so only for the purposes described above. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information as described here unless otherwise required by applicable laws. If you are visiting our website from outside the United States, you may be transferring your personally identifiable information into the United States when you voluntarily submit your personally identifiable information through this website. Many regions, such as the European Union, have data collection protections that differ from U.S. law. The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of networks, servers and databases we operate or that are operated on our behalf or that personal information transmitted to our website will not be intercepted, deleted or altered.
Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your information in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Caradigm adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfer, Security, Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation, Access, and Recourse, Enforcement, and Liability. For purposes of enforcing compliance with the Privacy Shield, Caradigm is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the US Federal Trade Commission.
Caradigm maintains reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction in accordance with the Privacy Shield.
You may have the right to access the personal information that we hold about you and to request that we correct, amend, or delete it if it is inaccurate or processed in violation of the Privacy Shield. These access rights may not apply in some cases, including where providing access is unreasonably burdensome or expensive under the circumstances or where it would violate the rights of someone other than the individual requesting access. If you would like to request access to, correction, amendment, or deletion of your personal information, you can submit a written request to the contact information provided below. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity. In some circumstances we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.

Caradigm also complies with the U.S.-Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from Switzerland.
