QAD Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy sets forth the standards QAD is committed to comply with when personal data is collected and processed by QAD. “Personal Data” or "Personally Identifiable Information" is information about you, such as name, address, email address, user ID, mailing address, and so on.

Personal Data Processing

QAD may process personal data for various purposes and in various contexts. QAD processes personal data when:

  • You visit our website www.qad.com or other QAD websites
  • We provide services, such as cloud, support or consultancy services, to our customers
  • We maintain contacts with our customers or prospects
  • We market our products or services to our customers or prospects
  • We perform corporate functions, such as HR, Finance and IT functions

QAD will only collect as much personal data as needed for specific, identified purposes, and we won’t use it for other purposes without obtaining your consent.

As a global company, QAD operates in a number of countries around the world. As such, the information may be used, stored, or processed outside the country where it was recorded. If we transfer your personal information to another country, we’ll take appropriate measures to protect your privacy and the personal data we transfer.

QAD Websites

QAD does not collect personally identifiable information — including your email address — unless we first ask you for it. On some of our sites, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with information, including your email address, street address, telephone number or other information so that we may enhance your site visit or follow up with you after your visit. Whether you provide any information is entirely up to you. If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Policy. In some circumstances, QAD may share information you voluntarily provide us with authorized business partners.

QAD makes available communication and collaboration tools to users of the QAD websites; if you decide to use such tools, you acknowledge and agree that other users of the QAD website may have access to your personally identifiable information (e.g. because it has been added to an address book). We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information collected through our website(s) to anyone. You hereby agree that you will not use any personally identified information available on a QAD website for any purposes other than the purpose for which it is made available on the website.

During the period you are logged onto our site we log IP addresses, browser and platform types, domain names, access times, referral addresses, and your activity while using or reviewing our site.

Some QAD sites, like many other commercial web sites, may utilize a standard technology called "cookies" to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a web site operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. Cookies are small strings of text that web sites can send to your browser. If you are simply browsing a QAD informational site, a cookie may be used to identify your browser as one that has visited the site before.

We may also make use of memory-based cookies in support of authenticating the user of certain QAD web applications. Similarly, if you are a registered user of a site providing service to QAD clients (and have a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information based on preferences you have indicated while using the site. Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize QAD services which require registration if you reject cookies. We do not follow your browsing path outside of the QAD site, except for referral data discussed above. Advertising networks that serve ads onto our web site may also use their own cookies. We have no access or control over these cookies.

QAD sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our authorized business partners. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.

QAD Services

QAD provides consultancy, support and Cloud services. QAD processes personal data in the context of such services solely for the benefit of its customers, for instance to provide advice or to address a support issue. QAD will not use personal data obtained from customers in the context of the provision of services for any other purpose, except as provided in the contractual agreement between QAD and customer.

When using QAD Cloud services, customers will input electronic data into the QAD systems. QAD may access such data for the purposes of providing the service, including the prevention or resolution of technical problems, responding to support issues, responding to customer’s instructions or as may be required by law, all in accordance with the terms of the agreement(s) between QAD and you.

QAD processes data obtained from its customers in the context of the provision of services under the direction of its Customers, and has no direct control or ownership of the personal data it processes. Customers are responsible for complying with any regulations or laws that require providing notice, disclosure and/or obtaining consent prior to transferring the data to QAD for processing purposes.

QAD works with authorized business partners and third party suppliers to provide optimal services to its customers. It is possible that partners or suppliers process personal data (e.g. the partners QAD uses for hosting its Cloud services). QAD will only share personal data with partners or suppliers if and when required for the performance of services and under the condition that partners and suppliers shall only use the personal data to perform services for the benefit of the customer and shall comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

QAD Contacts with Customers or Prospects

QAD regularly reaches out to its customers, directly or indirectly, be it to maintain existing contacts or establish new contacts or to be able to perform regularly occurring functions, such as working with customers to understand their requirements, invoicing of maintenance or recurring services, etc. QAD may share personal data with its authorized business partners to facilitate such contacts.

QAD Marketing

QAD markets its products and services to customers and prospects. In marketing its products and services, QAD may process personal data obtained through its websites (see above) or through other channels. QAD may share personal data with its authorized business partners in the context of marketing.

QAD Corporate Functions

As any company, QAD has various departments tasked with performing various corporate functions. Examples are the HR, Finance, Legal and IT departments. QAD may process personal data regarding its employees, contractors, suppliers or customers to be able to perform these functions and only to the extent required to perform these functions. Personal data may be processed to determine whether the various QAD corporate policies (e.g. policies regarding use of the QAD IT environment, the morals and ethics policies, etc.) are being complied with.

Special Cases

QAD may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) enforce the Web site Terms and Conditions of Use; or (d) act to protect the interests of our users or others.

Security

QAD uses reasonable commercial efforts to protect your personal data. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our servers. Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees and authorized business partners who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees and authorized business partners are limited in number, and are committed to our privacy policies. We will review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the changes on this page so that you always will know what information we collect, how we use it, and when and how we will disclose it.

Data Retention and Data Accuracy

QAD will keep your personal information only as long as needed for the purposes for which it was collected, or as permitted by law. QAD will take appropriate steps to make sure the personal data in our records is accurate.

Access to Personal Data

If you wish to access, correct or delete your personal data, please direct any requests to privacy@qad.com. Please note that an individual who seeks access to or wishes to correct or delete personal data processed in a QAD Cloud environment or to data QAD processes for the benefit of a customer in the context of the provision of services, should direct his or her query to the QAD customer responsible for the personal data (i.e. to the data controller). If such a query is sent to QAD directly, QAD will forward it to the customer.

Safe Harbor Program Statement

QAD complies with the U.S. – E.U. Safe Harbor Framework and the U.S. - Swiss Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of data from the European Union and Switzerland respectively. Information regarding the both the E.U. and Swiss Safe Harbor Frameworks can be found at: http://export.gov/safeharbor.

Conflicts and Dispute Resolutions

QAD is committed to resolving any conflicts or disputes that may arise in relation to QAD’s Privacy Policy. For any issues that may arise in the European Union, QAD has submitted to the authority of the European Data Protection Authorities as part of its compliance with the Safe Harbor Framework. For issues that may arise outside of the European Union, parties shall agree on an appropriate means of dispute resolution, or, failing such agreement, the dispute shall be brought before a competent court.
