2. DEFINITION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Generally speaking, “personal information” is any data that can be used to identify or contact you. However, while this Privacy Statement broadly addresses all types of personal information that we may collect, some of the data we describe below may not be considered personal information according to the data protection laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside. Therefore, you should understand that certain parts of this Privacy Statement will not apply to you depending on the laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside.

The personal information we collect directly from you includes identifiers, professional or employment-related information, commercial information and internet activity information, among others. We collect such information in the following situations:
Information you provide to us when accessing, visiting or using the Services. When you visit our website or our offices, engage with us as a vendor or customer, or otherwise access or use the Services, we collect information you provide to us as a controller, including, but not limited to:

- If you visit our offices, you may be required to register as a visitor and to provide your name, email address, phone number, company name and time and date of arrival;
- If you visit our offices or attend an event, you may be required to register as a visitor and to provide your name, email address, phone number, company name and time and date of arrival;

- If you are a client or potential client of Daon, you may provide us with certain data where we, and not the business or other organization you represent, is the data controller, such as business contact information.

In the event you choose not to provide us with the minimum amount of data necessary we may not be able to complete your request and you may be denied access to our services or officers.
2. Personal information we collect from other sources
We also collect information about you from other sources from publicly available information. We may combine this information with personal information provided by you. This helps us update, expand, and analyze our records, identify new customers, and create more tailored advertising to provide services that may be of interest to you. The personal information we collect from other sources includes identifiers, professional or employment-related information, education information and commercial information we collect such personal information from the following sources:
- Third party providers of business contact information, including mailing addresses, job titles, email addresses, phone numbers, intent data (or user behavior data), IP addresses, social media profiles, LinkedIn URLs, and custom profiles, for purposes of targeted advertising, delivering relevant email content, event promotion, determining eligibility and verifying contact information;
- Third parties that you have authorised to share such information with us. For example, if you link your social media account with our Services, we may receive information about you from your social media account; and
- Another individual at your organization who may provide us with your personal information, which may include personal information to the extent you consent to providing it and sharing it, for the purposes of obtaining services and pertaining to our vendors.
Information about your use of the Services. We collect information about you passively when you visit the Services. We will combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. Examples of the types of information we collect include, but are not limited to:
- Third-party plugins. We may have integrated third-party plugins in the Services, and the use of such third-party plugins results in data collection by both Daon and the relevant third-party. For example, the Services may feature a Facebook “Like” button and other widgets, such as the “Share” button or interactive mini-programs. If you use or interact with a third-party plugin, then both the third-party company and Daon will collect information about your access and use of the Services. Please see section 6 for further information.
- Cookies and similar tracking technologies. We use both first-party and third-party cookies, and other similar tracking technologies on the Services. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your device and collects information such as your IP address or information about your use of and/or activities on the Services (for example, what pages you visited or on which part of our Services you spent the most time). We may also use pixels, such as to track opening of emails. Please see section 6 below for more information. We sometimes use session-replay technologies to record your interactions and to help us diagnose problems and improve our Services. These technologies allow us to capture date and time.
- Log data. We collect log data about your use of the Services, which may include your IP address, IP data and the time of your access or use of the Services, page views, the referring URLs, and any other information about your activities on the Services.
- Accessing and using the Services in any other way. When you use or access the Services, we may collect information such as search terms, interactions with other users, and any other activities on the Services.
These types of passive collection may include tracking of a device across time and third-party services. Some browsers have so-called “do not track” signals, but different browsers have different default settings and there is not an industry consensus as to what these mean. Accordingly, we do not look for or address these signals.
4. PURPOSE OF COLLECTION AND THE ASSOCIATED LEGAL BASIS

6. COOKIES & SIMILAR TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES
COOKIES. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a computer or device when you visit the Services. If you reject our cookies and/or similar tracking technologies, you may still use the Services, but your ability to use some or all of the Services will be limited. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A “session ID” cookie expires when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Services. A “persistent” cookie remains on your hard drive which means that when you end your session and return to the same web Services later, the cookie information is still available. We set a persistent cookie to store your passwords so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on the Services. We use the following types of cookies:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential because they enable you to move around the Services and use certain features on the Services. For example, strictly necessary cookies allow you to access secure areas. Without these cookies, some content cannot be provided.
- Performance/Analytics Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you use the Services. For example, a performance/analytics cookie will collect information about which pages you go to most often, how much time you spend on that page, or if you get error messages from certain pages. These cookies do not gather information that identifies you. The information these cookies collect is anonymous and is used to improve how the Services works.
- Functionality Cookies. These cookies allow us to remember the choices you make and to tailor the Services so we can provide relevant content to you. For example, a functionality cookie can remember your preferences (e.g., country or language selection), or your username.
- Targeting/Advertising Cookies. These cookies are used to provide advertisements that are more appealing to you and your interests, and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. For example, a targeting/advertising cookie can remember that you have visited the Services, and it may share this information with other organisations, such as advertisers. This means that after you have visited the Services, you may see advertisements about our products and services elsewhere on the Internet.
WEB BEACONS / GIFS. Web beacons, or “clear gifs,” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive or device, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We and our third-party service provider employ web beacons for the reasons stated above (under “Cookies”), but primarily to help us better manage content on the Services by informing us which content is effective.

14. INTERNATIONAL USERS & DATA
As a global organisation, where legally permissible, Daon may collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process your personal information in countries outside of the country of your residence, which may have different data protection rules.
Personal information from inside the EU may be processed by Daon Inc. in the U.S. and Daon (Australia) Pty Ltd. in Australia, and Daon d.o.o. in Serbia, for the purpose of providing customer service and support. Appropriate safeguards are in place to require that your personal information will remain protected wherever it is transferred. Where we share personal information of individuals in the E.E.A or the UK (we will make use of the standard contractual clauses which have been approved by the via standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission signed between Daon Inc., Daon (Australia) Pty Ltd., and Daon d.o.o. (Belgrade), with Daon Technology which are available on request. If we share your personal information with external third parties outside of the E.E.A. we use specific contracts with external third parties that are approved by the European Commission for the transfer of personal information to third countries. These contracts require the same levels of personal information protection that would apply under the GDPR. However, any transfer of your data out of the E.E.A. may result in access to this data by local public authorities for monitoring purposes or public health, as permitted under local surveillance or public health laws.
Daon will not transfer personal information outside the EU to a third country or international organisation that does not provide an adequate level of data protection or without ensuring that appropriate safeguards are in place to protect the privacy and integrity of such personal information.
- Adequacy Decisions: We rely on decisions from the European Commission where they recognise that certain countries and territories outside of the European Economic Area ensure an adequate level of protection for personal information. These decisions are referred to as “adequacy decisions”. We transfer your personal information from the European Economic Area to UK in reliance on the European Commission’s adequacy decision for the UK.
- Standard Contractual Clauses: We utilise standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission (and the equivalent standard contractual clauses for the UK, where appropriate) for transfers to the United States, the UK and Australia.
While transfers to countries that don’t have an adequacy decision typically take place on the basis of the standard contractual clauses, in certain circumstances, transfers can also take place on the basis of exemptions provided for under data protection law. For example, sharing with law enforcement, in emergency situations where we learn that a person’s life is at risk.
Data protection law in certain jurisdictions differentiates the data controller and data processor of personal information. Different Daon entities provide the Services in different parts of the world. Section 16 lists the entities that act as controllers to the extent personal information is collected under applicable laws of those regions.

This Data Protection Framework Privacy Notice (“DPF Notice”) is part of our Privacy Statement and is provided for purposes of complying with the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. Data Privacy Framework. This DPF Notice pertains to Daon (“Daon”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). This DPF Notice supplements and should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Statement and is made available on our website. For purposes of Daon’s certification to the foregoing frameworks, this DPF Notice should be understood to incorporate Daon’s Privacy Statement.
To learn more about the Data Privacy Framework (“DPF”) program, please visit the DPF site at: https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov/.
For the purposes of this DPF Notice, (i) “personal data” means information about an identified or identifiable individual within the scope of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) GDPR as transposed into UK national law, together with the UK Data Protection Act 2018, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 (as amended) and other data protection or privacy legislation in force from time to time in the UK (collectively, “UK GDPR”), and Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection of 19 June 1992 and the revised version of 25 September 2020 when in force (“FADP”), that is received by Daon in the United States, from the EU, EEA, UK or Switzerland, and recorded in any form. Personal data does not include information collected from an employee of Daon and/or its affiliates within the scope of their employment. Personal data covered by this DPF Notice is collected and processed only as permitted by the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles.
DISCLOSURES & ACCOUNTABILITY FOR ONWARD TRANSFERS
Consistent with the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles, Daon may transfer personal data to its affiliates, its service providers, and other third parties, including transfers from one country to another. We will only disclose an individual’s personal data under one or more of the following conditions:
- To a Daon affiliate, purposes of assisting Daon in providing its services.
- To a third-party service provider that provides services to Daon, or to the individual, in connection with the operation of our business, and as consistent with the purpose for which the personal data was collected. We maintain written contracts with these third parties and require that these third parties provide at least the same level of privacy protection and security as required by the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles. To the extent provided by the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles, Daon remains responsible and liable under the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles if a third party that it engages to process personal data on its behalf does so in a manner inconsistent with the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and/or Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles, unless Daon proves that it is not responsible for the matter giving rise to the damage.
- To our accountants, lawyers, and other professional advisors, under an appropriate agreement.
- Where required to the extent necessary to meet a legal obligation to which Daon is subject, including a lawful request by public authorities and national security or law enforcement obligations and applicable law, rule, order, or regulation.

YOUR RIGHTS AND CHOICES
Individuals whose personal data is covered by this DPF Notice have the right to access the personal data that Daon maintains about them as specified in the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles. Individuals may contact us to correct, amend or delete such personal data if it is inaccurate or has been processed in violation of the EU-U.S. DPF Principles and Swiss-U.S. DPF Principles (except when the burden or expense of providing access, correction, amendment, or deletion would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Daon may limit or deny access to personal data to the extent that provided under EU, UK and/or Swiss data protection laws.
