This Privacy Policy does not apply to the use of your Personal Information that is collected by third parties that DatasheetArchive does not own or control or that do not support DatasheetArchive in providing the DatasheetArchive Offerings.

"Personal information" is information that is personally identifiable like names, addresses, e-mail addresses, or phone numbers, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.

"Anonymous information" means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.

General Information

As a general principle, your granting of any consent and your provision of any Personal Information hereunder is entirely voluntary; there are generally no detrimental effects on you if you choose not to consent or to provide Personal Information. However, there are circumstances in which DatasheetArchive cannot take action without certain Personal Information, for example because this Personal Information is required to process your orders or provide you with access to a web offering or newsletter. In these cases, it will unfortunately not be possible for DatasheetArchive to provide you with what you request without the relevant Personal Information.

As part of a global group of companies, DatasheetArchive has affiliates and third-party service providers within, as well as outside of, the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). As a consequence, whenever DatasheetArchive is using or otherwise processing your Personal Information for the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement, DatasheetArchive may transfer your Personal Information to countries outside of the EEA including to such countries in which a statutory level of data protection applies that is not comparable to the level of data protection within the EEA. Whenever such transfer occurs, it is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (according to EU Commission Decision 87/2010/EC or any future replacement) in order to contractually provide that your Personal Information is subject to a level of data protection that applies within the EEA.

You can request from DatasheetArchive at any time details about which Personal Information DatasheetArchive processes about you and the correction or deletion of such Personal Information. Please note, however, that DatasheetArchive can delete your Personal Information only if there is no statutory obligation or prevailing right of DatasheetArchive to retain it. If you request that DatasheetArchive delete your Personal Information, you will not be able to continue to use any DatasheetArchive service that requires DatasheetArchive’s use of your Personal Information.

If DatasheetArchive uses your Personal Information based on your consent or to perform a contract with you, you may further request from DatasheetArchive a copy of the Personal Information that you have provided to DatasheetArchive. In this case, please contact the email address below and specify the information or processing activities to which your request relates, the format in which you would like this information, and whether the Personal Information is to be sent to you or another recipient. SuppyFrame will carefully consider your request and discuss with you how we can best fulfill it.

Furthermore, you can request from DatasheetArchive that we restrict your Personal Information from any further processing in any of the following events: (i) you state that the Personal Information DatasheetArchive has about you is incorrect, (but only for as long as DatasheetArchive requires to check the accuracy of the relevant Personal Information), (ii) there is no legal basis for DatasheetArchive processing your Personal Information and you demand that DatasheetArchive restricts your Personal Information from further processing, (iii) DatasheetArchive no longer requires your Personal Information but you claim that you require DatasheetArchive to retain such data in order to claim or exercise legal rights or to defend against third party claims, or (iv) in case you object to the processing of your Personal Information by DatasheetArchive (based on DatasheetArchive’s legitimate interest as further set out below) for as long as it is required to review as to whether DatasheetArchive has a prevailing interest or legal obligation in processing your Personal Information.

Please direct any such request to

Uses Of My Personal Information Based On My Consent

In the following cases DatasheetArchive will only use your Personal Information as further detailed below after you have granted your prior consent into the relevant processing operations.

DatasheetArchive may provide a hashed user ID to third party operated social networks or other web offerings (such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram or Google) where this information is then matched against the social networks’ data or the web offerings’ own data bases in order to display to you more relevant information.

DatasheetArchive offers you the option to use its Offerings including forums, blogs, and networks linked to its Sites that require you to register and create a user profile. User profiles provide the option to display personal information about you to other users, including but not limited to your name, photo, social media accounts, postal or email address, or both, telephone number, personal interests, skills, and basic information about your company.

These profiles may relate to a single Offering of DatasheetArchive or may also allow you to access other Offerings of DatasheetArchive or of other entities of DatasheetArchive, or both (irrespective of any consent granted under the section “Forwarding Your Personal Data To Other DatasheetArchive Companies.” below). It is, however, always your choice which of these additional Offerings you use and your Personal Information is only forwarded to them once you initially access them. Kindly note that without your consent for DatasheetArchive to create such user profiles, DatasheetArchive will not be in a position to offer such services to you where your consent is a statutory requirement that DatasheetArchive can provide these services to you.

Within any Offerings, beyond the mere provision of access, your profile is used to personalize interaction with other users (for example, by way of messaging or follow functionality) and by DatasheetArchive to foster the quality of communication and collaboration through such Offerings and for DatasheetArchive to provide gamification elements (gamification is the process of taking something that already exists, such as a website, an enterprise application, or an online community, and integrating game mechanics into it to motivate participation, engagement, and loyalty). To the greatest extent supported by the relevant Offerings, you can use the functionality of the relevant Offerings to determine which information you want to share.

Special categories of Personal Information. In connection with the registration for and provision of access to an event or seminar, DatasheetArchive may ask for information about your health for the purpose of identifying and being considerate of individuals who have disabilities or special dietary requirements throughout the event. Any such use of information is based on the consent you grant hereunder.

Kindly note that if you do not provide any such information about disabilities or special dietary requirements, DatasheetArchive will not be able to take any respective precautions.

If you register for an event, seminar, or webinar of DatasheetArchive, DatasheetArchive may share basic participant information (your name, company, and email address) with other participants of the same event, seminar, or webinar for the purpose of communication and the exchange of ideas.

DatasheetArchive may transfer your Personal Information to other entities owned by DatasheetArchive. In such cases, these entities will then use the Personal Information for the same purposes and under the same conditions as outlined in this section.

You may at any time withdraw a consent granted. In case of withdrawal, DatasheetArchive will not process Personal Information subject to this consent any longer unless legally required to do so. In case DatasheetArchive is required to retain your Personal Information for legal reasons your Personal Information will be restricted from further processing and only retained for the term required by law. However, any withdrawal has no effect on past processing of Personal Information by DatasheetArchive up to the point in time of your withdrawal. Furthermore, if your use of an DatasheetArchive Offering requires your prior consent, DatasheetArchive will not be (any longer) able to provide the relevant service, offer or event to you after your revocation.

We may share some or all of your Personal Information with any parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (collectively, "Affiliates"), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of DatasheetArchive or its assets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. You hereby consent to DatasheetArchive sharing your Personal Information under the above circumstances.

We may (and you authorize us to) disclose information we have collected from and about you (including Personal Information) if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us; (b) to enforce any agreement we may have entered into with you and to enforce the Privacy Policy; or (c) to protect and defend the rights or property of us, other Users, or third parties.

You may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature, but if you do not wish to receive these announcements, you have the option to terminate the Account you may have with us. You understand that any termination of your Account may involve deletion of your Account information (and associated Content) from our live databases and all the information and data stored for such Account in the DatasheetArchive Offerings.
