This Privacy Notice is provided to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, secure it and share it, and the choices available to you in accessing, updating, and correcting your personal information. We want to share this information with you because privacy is not only important to us—it is the foundation of our business.
This Privacy Notice applies to: (i) RADAR websites, including www.radarfirst.com and other subdomains that form our corporate web presence (“Website”); (ii) RADAR software that collects and processes information of our customers who purchase a subscription to our software-as-a-service product (accessible at app.radarfirst.com) (“Product”), and (iii) any RADAR internal business systems used to maintain personal information. Collectively, we refer to our Website, Product, and internal business systems as “Services”.
RADAR is committed to complying with laws to which it is subject, including applicable privacy laws. Our Website and Product are not intended for individuals under age 16 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under age 16. If you are under 16, do not provide any information on this Website. If we learn that we collected or received personal information from an individual under age 16, without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
Information We Collect
RADAR collects information as part of its business operations, to provide the services, to respond to requests and offer customer support, to fulfill legal and contractual obligations, and to improve our Product. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you contact customer support, or register for a RADAR event or publication. We also collect information through your interaction with the Product and our Website, for example, where we use embedded product technologies and cookies. We also obtain data from third party sources, as more fully described in this Privacy Notice.

All personal information collected through the Website is secured and access to that personal information is limited to individuals within our business that need access to this information to perform their job. No personal information is shared with third parties other than those service providers that RADAR directly engages to provide services supporting operation and administration of our Website. We may use surveys to solicit feedback or in connection with events that request personal information. In addition to your contact information, these surveys may request demographic information or information about your personal interests.

No personal information of Licensed Users is shared with third parties other than those select service providers that RADAR has engaged.
We utilize application analytics tools to improve user interactions and monitor the performance of our Product. Such information may include frequency and nature of a customer’s use of the Product and information necessary to troubleshoot any issues reported.
Customer Information: Other than where our customer has specifically contracted with us to employ single-sign-on authentication, the Product does not require personal information in order to provide risk assessments. However, our customers may elect to enter personal information into their Product account for record-keeping or other purposes. All information entered into the Product by our customers (including without limitation any personal information) is “Customer Information”. We process and store Customer Information on behalf of our customers as a data processor. Our customers, as the controller of the data that we collect on their behalf, determine the purpose and legal basis for the data processing activities associated with Customer Information. Any Customer Information disclosed will be for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Notice (see Why and With Whom We Share Your Information) or as expressly set forth in the agreement with our customer.
Webinar Registration Information: We partner with select third parties to deliver webinars and other similar events. When you register to attend one of these events, we may receive your information from these third-party partners.
Information We Obtain from Other Sources: We may receive information about you from other third-party sources. We may buy or lease contact, marketing, and demographic data from third parties, including certain profile information from marketing and sales intelligence tools, social networking platforms, and services that you use to interact with the Website or Product. This information may be combined with information that we collect directly from you.
We may also collect information about you from other third party or public sources, such as social networks, when you use “Share This” via Facebook, Twitter, or other social media “like” buttons or plug-ins on our Website.

Where you register for an event and your registration includes Sensitive Information, such as dietary needs or accessibility needs, your submission of that information is your consent for us to process this information for the purpose of meeting your needs. We will never use Sensitive Information for any other purpose without your opt-in consent.

To request removal of your personal information from the feedback forum, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.

Please note that RADAR customers can update, add, or delete Licensed User and Customer Information on their own. However, collection, use and processing of some personal information within the Product is necessary to ensure the security of the data and to authenticate access.
Licensed Users have access to their own Licensed User Information and are able to correct, amend, or delete their personal information through the Product’s user tools. Note there may be limits to what data can be deleted or amended, such as data associated with security activity logs.
For Licensed Users and Visitors from the European Union, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom
Our Legal Basis for Processing Personal Information
If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), RADAR’s legal basis for collecting and using your personal information will depend on the personal information concerned and the specific context in which it is collected.
Generally, we will collect personal information from you: (1) where we have your consent, (2) where we need your personal information to perform a contract with you, (3) where we have a legal obligation to do so, such as the performance of a contract with our business customer, or (4) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your data protection interests of fundamental rights and freedoms (such as processing for administrative purposes, product development or improvement, preventing fraud or criminal acts, or securing information that we collect).
RADAR is the data controller for all personal information from EU residents who visit our Website (“WebsiteVisitor Information”). We collect and use Website Visitor Information based on our legitimate business interest or consent (where legally required).
RADAR is the data processor for all personal information regarding EU, Swiss, or United Kingdom data subjects entered into the Product. Our business customers are data controllers and, in that role, determine the purpose and legal basis for the data processing activities we perform.
If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please send an email to email@example.com.
International data transfers
Our Website servers are located in the U.S. and we utilize third party service providers and partners located in the U.S. This means that, when we collect your personal information, it may be processed in a country that has different data protection laws than the laws of your country.
However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that the personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice when transferred internationally, including when processed internationally by third party service providers and partners. The safeguards we have taken include implementing the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses or relying on a third-party service provider’s EU-U.S. or EU-Swiss Privacy Shield certification in connection with any transfer of personal information to non-European Economic Area (“EEA”) third party service providers or business partners.
In addition, RADAR participates in the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield programs. Please see EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks for additional information.
We will retain your personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, such as to provide our Product or to comply with applicable legal, tax, or accounting requirements. When we no longer have an ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, where your personal information has been stored in backup archives), we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until it is deleted. In addition, we will retain your information for as long as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Your data protection rights
You have the following data protection rights associated with the data that we process as a data controller:
- You may request access, correction, deletion, or updates to your personal information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org;
- You may object to our processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict processing of your personal information, or request portability of your personal information by contacting us by email at email@example.com;
- You may opt-out of our marketing communications at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing e-mails you receive from us. If you wish to opt-out of other forms of marketing, such as postal marketing or telemarketing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org;
- In addition, if we collect and process your personal information with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Please note however, that withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing that we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information where we have relied upon an alternate legal basis for the processing of your information; and
- You have the right to submit a complaint to your local data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA, Switzerland, and certain non-European countries (including the U.S. and Canada) may be found by going here.
We will respond to all data protection rights requests we receive in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
