This is the privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) that governs how we, SEMScoop . (“SEMScoop”, “we”, “our” or “us”), use Personal Data (defined below) that we collect, receive and store about individuals in connection with the use of: (i) the websites at www.semscoop.com, www.semscoop.com, www.semscoop.com and any other website that we operate (collectively, together with their sub-domains, content and services, the “Sites”); and (ii) our services, available via the Sites and our web and mobile applications (the “Service”).

We ourselves do not host any of the Sites and Service. All hosting is done by third-party service providers that we engage. This means that data you provide us or that we collect from you (including any Personal Data, as defined below) – as further described in this Privacy Policy – is hosted with such third-party service providers on servers that they own or control. Regardless of where such third-party service providers are located, their servers may be located anywhere in the world. Your data may even be replicated across multiple servers located in multiple countries.

This Privacy Policy explains our online data practices and the choices you can make about the way your Personal Data is collected and used in connection with the Sites and the Service. “Personal Data” means any information or data that may be used, either alone or in combination with other data, to personally identify an individual, including a person’s name, personal profile, e-mail address, physical address or other contact information.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time at our discretion. Such change will be effective ten (10) days following posting of the revised Privacy Policy on the Sites, and your continued use of the Service thereafter means that you accept those changes.
