Nexthink Privacy and Cookies Policy

Nexthink SA (together with its associated companies) (“We”, “Us”) respect your privacy and promise to use appropriate measures to protect any personal data we collect about you or that you provide to us (“your information”).

This Privacy Policy (together with our Terms and Conditions of use of our website and any other documents referred to on it) sets out the basis on which your information, will be processed by us through our website at (the “Website”) or when you contact us.

“Personal data” or “personal information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual, for example: a first and last name, a home or other physical address, an email address or other contact information, whether at work or at home or technical information such as a IP address, cookies or device information. More detail about what personal data we collect about you is noted below.

Basis of Processing

We will normally collect your information from you only where we have your consent to do so, where we need the personal information to perform a contract with you, or where the processing is in our legitimate interests. We may also need to process your information to comply with our legal obligations, or when it is in your or another person’s vital interests.

“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/products. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests.

When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your information for activities where our interests are overridden by the negative impact on you (unless one of the other legal bases applies, as described above.

If you have any concerns about the processing below, you have the right to object to processing that is based on our legitimate interests. For more information on your rights, please see “Your Rights” section below.

Collection of Your Information by Us

Information that you provide voluntarily

You may give us personally identifiable information and contact data voluntarily, for example that you give us by filling in forms on our Website or by corresponding with us by phone, e-mail or otherwise, including contact information, such as your name, e-mail address, phone number, and other such information that can identify you personally, such as your login credentials. You may also voluntarily respond to our online surveys or allow us to record calls with you to improve the quality of our support and services.

We may also process data covering your preferences in receiving marketing and other communications from us and third parties. Respondents to our online surveys and attendees to our online webinars or digital events may be requested to provide additional personal data alongside identity and contact data. We may collect demographic information, such as gender, age, marital status, nationality, country of birth and residence, native language preferences, interests and favorites that are not associated with your name or other personally identifying information. We also collect participant IDs as well as any personal data provided in the individual’s responses.

When applying for a specific vacancy advertised on the Website or submitting your details for entry into the Nexthink speculative applicant database, you will be asked for specific personal information to determine your potential suitability against current or future recruitment requirements. This could include your CV, details of your work and academic experience, professional qualifications and other information relevant to the vacancy or business area you have selected, along with your contact details. As a general rule, during the recruitment process, we try not to collect or process any of the following: information that reveals your racial or ethnic origin, religious, political or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership; genetic data; biometric data for the purposes of unique identification; or information concerning your health/sex life (“Sensitive Personal Information“), unless authorised by law or where necessary to comply with applicable laws. However, in some circumstances, we may need to collect, or request on a voluntary disclosure basis, some Sensitive Personal Information for legitimate recruitment-related purposes: for example, information about your racial/ethnic origin, gender and disabilities for the purposes of equal opportunities monitoring, to comply with anti-discrimination laws and for government reporting obligations. You may provide, on a voluntary basis, other Sensitive Personal Information during the recruitment process.
