The use of the channels or applications by any User or Customer may imply the performance of personal data processing operations, whose protection, privacy and security by GFOUNDRY, as entity responsible for the respective processing, is ensured, in accordance with the terms of this Privacy and Data Protection Policy.

This privacy policy describes how we (GFOUNDRY) record and use the personal data we collect from you or that your employer provides for use through your use of our website and our mobile applications.


This Privacy Policy applies to the online platform under the name of GFoundry (the “Service”), (the “Website”) and other interactions (e.g. customer service requests, etc.) you may have with GFOUNDRY products. If you do not agree to the terms, please do not access or use the Service, Website or any other aspect of GFOUNDRY’ business.

In addition, a separate agreement governs the delivery, access and use of the Service (the “Service Agreement”), including the processing of any personal data, messages or other content submitted through Service accounts (collectively, “Customer Data”). The organization that entered into the Service Agreement (“Customer”) controls your instance of the Service (your “Customer Account”) and any associated Customer Data.

At GFOUNDRY we seek the correct application of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 (GDPR) on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data.


GFOUNDRY processes personal data strictly necessary for the provision of information and the operation of its channels, according to the uses made by Users or Customers, whether of those that are provided by Users for the purposes of registering on the channels, or of those that are provided by Customers for the purposes of joining those channels, or of those that result from the

use of the services provided by GFOUNDRY through them, such as accesses, consultations, instructions, transactions and other records related to their use. In particular, the use or activation of certain functionalities of the channels may involve the processing of various direct or indirect personal identifiers, such as name, home address, e-mail, device addresses or geographical location, behavioral data, provided there is the express consent of the User or the Customer.

In all cases, Users or Customers will always be informed of the need to access such data in order to use the functionalities of the channels in question. The personal data collected by GFOUNDRY are processed by computer, in certain cases in an automated way, including file, contractual or post-contractual processing with the Users or Customers, under the terms of the national and community regulations in force.


GFOUNDRY guarantees that personal data is treated in a lawful way, as it ensures that this treatment is carried out only in the following situations:

– After formalized consent by the data subject to the processing of the data,

– In the context of the execution of a contract in which the holder is an integral part, – In compliance with legal obligations, to which GFOUNDRY is subject – In the defense of vital interests of the holder of the data or of another natural person – In the exercise of functions of public interest


Data is collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and may not be further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes.

The data provided by Users or Customers may be used for the appropriate purposes, namely in the activities carried out in the context of the setup process and licensing of GFOUNDRY software products.

All personal data treated in the scope of GFOUNDRY software products are exclusively destined to provide information to the Users, to manage their personal information considered necessary for setup and use of the various modules of GFOUNDRY software products, as well as to provide the services contracted by the Customers and, in general, to manage the pre-contractual, contractual or post-contractual relationship with the Users or Customers.

Data provided by Users or Customers in connection with the licensing and use of GFoundry software products is stored in the cloud, and is used exclusively by the Customer for the duration of the contract with GFoundry.

The data provided by Users or Customers may be used to contact you regarding certain details associated with the registration of technical assistance requests, purchase of products or services, satisfaction surveys, response to complaints, partnership management, etc.

Personal data is collected and processed in these contexts, as strictly necessary, and relevant to these purposes.


The data collected and processed by GFOUNDRY will be only that which is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the intended purposes.


The data shall be accurate, and updated where necessary, and all appropriate measures shall be taken so that inaccurate data, taking into account the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay.


The data shall not be recorded or stored on other media or devices, nor shall any data be stored other than for the purposes intended. The data shall be stored in such a way that the data subjects can be identified only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed.

The process will not last longer than is necessary to complete the purpose for which the data was collected.

Personal data will only be kept for longer periods for archiving purposes in the public interest, or for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes (according to article 89, paragraph 1, of the Regulation)


Technical and organizational measures will be taken so that personal data will be kept secure, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.


GFOUNDRY, as the controller, is responsible for compliance with the principles of the regulation described above.


Any transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organization shall only take place in the framework of the fulfillment of legal obligations or to guarantee that the compliance with the community and national legal norms applicable in this matter is guaranteed.


Taking into account the most advanced techniques, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing, as well as the risks, varying in probability and severity, to Users or Customers, GFOUNDRY and all its subcontractors apply appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk.

For this purpose, several security measures are adopted in order to protect personal data against diffusion, loss, misuse, alteration, unauthorized treatment or access, as well as against any other form of unlawful treatment.

It is the exclusive responsibility of Users and Customers to keep access codes secret, not sharing them with third parties, and, in the particular case of computer applications used to access GFOUNDRY’s software products, to maintain and keep the access devices in safe conditions and follow the security practices advised by the manufacturers and/or operators, namely regarding the installation and updating of the necessary security applications, namely, among others, antivirus applications. All mobile applications that GFOUNDRY makes available should be – whenever possible – updated with the last available version.
