If you are a resident of the European Union (“EU”), United Kingdom, Lichtenstein, Norway, or Iceland, you may have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”) with respect to your Personal Information, as outlined below. The terms in this section will be effective as of October 1st, 2018.
For this section, “Personal Information” shall have the same meaning as “personal data” as defined in the GDPR and we use the term “processing” as it is defined in the GDPR, but “Personal Information” generally means information that can be used to individually identify a person, and “processing” generally covers actions that can be performed in connection with data such as collection, use, storage and disclosure. RoboMQ will be the controller of your Personal Information processed in connection with the Services. Note that we may also process Personal Information of our customers’ end users or employees in connection with our provision of services to customers, in which case we are the processor of Personal Information. If we are the processor of your Personal Information (i.e., not the controller), please contact the controller party in the first instance to address your rights with respect to such data.
Legal Grounds for Processing
We will only process your Personal Information if we have a lawful basis for doing so. Lawful bases for processing include consent, contractual necessity and our “legitimate interests” or the legitimate interest of others, as further described below.
- Contractual Necessity: We process the following categories of Personal Information as a matter of “contractual necessity”, meaning that we need to process the data to perform under our Terms of Service with you, which enables us to provide you with the Services. When we process data due to contractual necessity, failure to provide such Personal Information will result in your inability to use some or all portions of the Services that require such data.

- Connection Data

- Consent: In some cases, we process Personal Information based on the consent you expressly grant to us at the time we collect such data. When we process Personal Information based on your consent, it will be expressly indicated to you at the point and time of collection.
- Other Processing Grounds: From time to time we may also need to process Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation, if it is necessary to protect the vital interests of you or other data subjects, or if it is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest.
How And With Whom Do We Share Your Data?
- Other Users (where you post information publicly or as otherwise necessary to perform a transaction initiated or authorized by you through the Services)
- Social media services (if you interact with them through your use of our Services)
- Third party business partners who you access through the Services (e.g. third-party applications)

- Protect us, our business or our Users, for example to enforce our Terms of Service, prevent spam or other unwanted communications and investigate or protect against fraud
- Maintain the security of our products and services
If we choose to buy or sell assets, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party, and we would share Personal Information with the party that is acquiring our assets. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.
How Long Do We Retain Your Personal Information?
We retain Personal Information about you for as long as you have an open account with us or as otherwise necessary to provide you Services.
Account data (both essential and optional) is maintained as long as you have an active account with us and for up to 90 days after account closure.
Session cookies expire after 14 days, by default, but the expiration can set longer or shorter under your control.
In some cases, we retain Personal Information for longer, if doing so is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes or collect fees owed, or is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation. In particular, contact and company information, as well as subscription and payment activity and any contracts you have executed with us, will be retained for a period of at least 7 years, for auditing purposes. We will retain some marketing related information for a period of 5 years, for analytic purposes.s
Content you post on our systems (such as Community Forums) may remain on the Site indefinitely, unless you send us an explicit removal request. You may send such request at email@example.com.
Our third-party processors may retain data for various periods depending on their individual privacy policies.
