Privacy Policy

Last Updated: June 1st, 2016

At RetailerSoft, Inc. ("RetailerSoft", "we", "us", or "our" which include our group and affiliated companies), our most important asset is our relationship with our user community. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of information about our users and their organizations. This Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal and company information when you visit a RetailerSoft Website https://www.RetailerSoft.com/ ("the Site") or use any of a RetailerSoft Services.

In this privacy policy, "you" and "your" refers to individual users of a RetailerSoft Service, and "RetailerSoft Service", "Member", "Corporate Member", "Application" and other capitalised terms not defined in this privacy policy are defined in a RetailerSoft Terms of Service currently located at https://www.RetailerSoft.com//terms. If you have questions or complaints regarding our privacy policy or practices, please contact us at support@RetailerSoft.com.

Important – Transfer of Data to the US of European personal information

Information that our European users submit through a RetailerSoft Service or the Site is sent to and stored on secure servers located in the United States of America and may be transferred by us to our other offices and/or to the third parties (such as our Partner Companies), who may be situated in the United States of America or elsewhere outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and may be processed by staff operating outside the EEA. The US and other non-EEA countries do not have similar data protection laws to the European Union, and you should be aware in particular that the law and practice in the United States in respect of law enforcement authority access to data is significantly different from Europe. Where we transfer your information we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected consistent with our obligations under local law. By submitting information via the Site, you agree to this storing, processing and/or transfer.

RetailerSoft complies with the U.S. – E.U. Safe Harbor Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of personal data from the European Union member countries. RetailerSoft has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view RetailerSoft’s certification, please visit www.export.gov/safeharbor/ . We appreciate that the Safe Harbor Framework no longer operates under EU law as a mechanism for compliance with data transfer rules, but as a matter of US law and of good practice, we regard it as an important measure of our commitment to stewardship of personal information.
