Collection of Personal Data

Personal Data is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you, e.g., your name, phone number, location, or Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We may need to collect and process Personal Data in order to provide requested information, provide products or services to you (including the Applications) and/or because we are legally required to do so. Personal Data may be requested from you as part of the Applications registration process. This process requests that you provide your name, business phone number, and location (only while scanning a product), and agree to the Terms of Use.  We may also collect Personal Data when you respond to a survey, inquire about our Services, contact us for customer care or technical support, and utilize our cloud-based services (e.g., when collecting or processing information via one of our SaaS offerings). Your information helps us to better respond to your individual interests and needs.

In some circumstances, PUCHO may receive Personal Data from social media platforms. For example, if you elect to use your social media credentials to log-in to your Applications account, certain Personal Data from your social media account will be shared with us, which may include Personal Data that is part of your social media profile.

PUCHO may collect Personal Data voluntarily provided by you, including in emails to the Applications, online forms, registration forms, surveys, promotion participation, phone calls and online chats with customer service or technical support and through other means.

PUCHO collects information through various other means, including participation at conferences and events, individual introductions, from employers that use our Services, and from selected third-party business partners.

We use Personal Data for legitimate business purposes, including the following:

We may on occasion operate sweepstakes, contests and similar promotions (collectively, “Promotions“). If you choose to enter a Promotion, we typically ask you for certain Personal Data when you enter and, if applicable, win a Promotion. You should carefully review the rules of each Promotion in which you participate, as they may contain additional important information about our use of Personal Data about you. To the extent that the terms and conditions of such rules concerning the treatment of your Personal Data conflict with this Privacy Policy, the terms and conditions of such rules shall control. We use this information to operate the Promotions.
