This Policy applies to information we collect:
- On rayobyte.com
- In email and other electronic messages between you and Rayobyte. This Policy does not apply to information collected by:
- us offline or through any other means; or
- any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from our Services.
The General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), which became effective on May 25, 2018, creates consistent data protection rules across Europe. It applies to all companies that process data about individuals in the European Union. The GDPR imposes responsibilities on “data controllers” and “data processors.” A company is a “data controller” when it has the responsibility of determining why and how personal data is processed. A company is a “data processor” when it processes personal data on behalf of a data controller. While Rayobyte mostly operates as a data controller, there are some instances in which Rayobyte operates as a data processor, particularly when working with customers and other third parties. To the extent Rayobyte acts as a data processor, Rayobyte is committed to complying with the GDPR’s specific requirements for data processors and we will work with customers and to update any related privacy policies on other websites.
This Policy is designed to address only Rayobyte’s data practices with respect to activities conducted by Rayobyte on its own behalf or through the Website. For those activities, Rayobyte acts as a data controller and may appoint third parties to act as data processor on its behalf, such as Google Analytics, and as further set forth in Section IV herein. Rayobyte is committed to ensuring that it has appropriate terms in place with such partners so that both Rayobyte and the partners comply with their respective requirements under the GDPR.
Data controllers must have a legal basis to process your personal information. Rayobyte’s legal basis to process your information arises from Rayobyte’s need to use your information to provide you with the Services and customer support and to advance Rayobyte’s other legitimate interests (including operating the Website, conducting direct and indirect marketing, etc.), as discussed more fully in this Policy. Rayobyte also relies on your consent in some circumstances as the basis for processing your personal information.
