Our legal basis for collecting and processing personal data
We will only collect and process your personal data where we have lawful
bases. Lawful bases include consent (where you have given consent), contract
(where processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you
(e.g., to deliver our Services), and “legitimate interests.”

Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time, and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object. Please contact our Data Protection Officer if you have any questions about the lawful bases upon which we collect and use your personal data.
Legitimate interests. The legitimate interests of processing mean that such processing is performed for a task carried out in the public interest or the exercise of official authority vested in the controller or on grounds of the legitimate interests of a controller or a third party. SOC Prime may process your personal data for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties, provided that such processing shall not outweigh your rights and freedoms. For example, we may process your personal data to:
- Protect you, us, or others from threats (such as security threats or fraud);
- Comply with laws that apply to us;
- Enable or administer our business, such as for quality control, consolidated reporting, and customer service;

Organizations with which you engage
If you have registered for the Services with your company's domain name ("Organization"), i.e. @yourcompany.com, or if the Services are provided to you through an Organization, you expressly agree that we might provide your Organization with your activity logs on the Services upon prior written request from the Organization owner.
As a result of improving our platform for customers, your personal information provided during registration, such as your names and email addresses, as well as information about when and how you clicked on specific content, will be visible to all members of your company team. This information is confidential and not to be disclosed outside of your company.

How Can You Opt Out of Use and Disclosure of Your Information?
Following the registration process, we also allow Users the option to opt out of receiving emails from SOC Prime. Users who opt-in may also remove themselves from emailing lists at any time through the edit profile pages or by following the instructions at the end of any email they received from SOC Prime.
We may use the services of various service providers and partners contracted
to SOC Prime (Data Processors) in order to process your data more effectively.
When they no longer need your data to fulfill Services, they will dispose of the
details in line with SOC Prime’s procedures.
SOC Prime selects only suppliers that can provide technical, physical, and organizational security that meet our requirements in terms of all the personal data they will process on SOC Prime’s behalf. We will ensure that all security arrangements are outlined in the contract with the external processor.
Suppliers from outside the EU will only be selected under the following conditions, in addition to the requirements noted elsewhere in this procedure:
- if the supplier or the state in which it resides has been positively identified in an adequacy decision by the EU Commission; or
- where there are organizational and technical safeguards established between SOC Prime and the supplier to secure the rights and freedoms of data subjects at least equal to those afforded within the EU; or
- where the arrangement has been approved by the supervisory authority.

We also use ZoomInfo’s WebSights tool that reveals the identities of organizations that visit our Site and provides visualized analytics. It is powered by ZoomInfo’s proprietary IP matching algorithm. WebSights snippet is installed at the homepage of a Site and tracks company behavior on every web page that shares the same header. Then, ZoomInfo displays us a detailed profile for each company and a complete list of potential contacts employed there. To find more, please read https://university.zoominfo.com/learn/article/viewing-websights-activity”.
ZoomInfo’s FormComplete script. We use a ZoomInfo tool called FormComplete to populate form data. Once you enter an email address, ZoomInfo will fill in the rest of the required data. How does it work? When you provide an email address, ZoomInfo supplies data for the other form fields (if a match is found). This script monitors keystrokes in the required email field and sends a query with the supplied email to ZoomInfo once a sufficient portion of the email has been entered. If a match is found, the other fields in the form are populated with data, helping you to submit a complete form faster. If no match is found, no data is returned. https://engineering.zoominfo.com/zoominfo-form-data

Definitions (drawn from the GDPR)Data controller – the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Data processor - a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller
Personal data – any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Special categories of personal data – Personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade-union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation.
Data subject – any living individual who is the subject of personal data held by an organization.
Processing – any operation or set of operations that are performed on personal data or sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Profiling – is any form of automated processing of personal data intended to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, or to analyze or predict that person’s performance at work, economic situation, location, health, personal preferences, reliability, or behavior. This definition is linked to the right of the data subject to object to profiling and a right to be informed about the existence of profiling, measures based on profiling, and the envisaged effects of profiling on the individual.
