This section sets out when and how we use your personal information that you or others provide to us.
If you are in the European Union or UK and your organisation requires RealVNC to sign a Data Processing Agreement in order to meet your regulatory requirements (for example, GDPR or UK GDPR) to enable you, as Data Controller, to enter into a contractual agreement to use our services, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send our standard DPA for you to review.
We are RealVNC Limited, an English company with company number 04446945 (RealVNC).
Our registered address is 50-60 Station Road, Cambridge, CB1 2JH, United Kingdom.

When you purchase or try our software, we will use your personal information to complete your purchase. The details we collect from you will include your email address, name, address, payment and other contact details.
If you purchase our software, we share your personal information with our subcontractors who are involved in the purchase process, such as payment providers, as well as credit reference agencies who we use to assess fraud, credit and/or security risks.
We need to process your personal information in this way to enter into and perform the contract for your use of our software.
We also carry out checks on our customers to ensure they aren’t subject to international sanctions, and to comply with laws applying to the export of our software. If we run these checks and you are flagged as someone who may be subject to a sanction, to continue with your order we may contact you to request additional information to confirm whether we are legally able to onboard you as a customer. The additional data we ask you for will usually be your gender, date and place of birth, and your itizenship. We do this to comply with our legal obligations, and our legitimate interest to run our business in line with best practice principles.
When you phone, email or message us using our website portal or online chat service, we may also handle your personal information (your name, contact details and the other details you provide to us) in order to provide the customer services you have asked us to. This could be when you ask us to confirm whether a particular product is available, or explain how our delivery or returns process works. Please be aware that we may record calls for training and monitoring reasons.
We rely on our legitimate interest to respond to your query to handle your personal information in this way, except when we are providing a service you have asked us to as part of the contract between us. Please keep in mind that if you do not provide us with the personal information we request from you for customer services purposes, we may not be able to fully answer your queries.
We will transfer your personal information to a third party:
If we sell or buy any business or assets, we will provide your personal information to the seller or buyer (but only to the extent we need to, and always in accordance with data protection legislation); or If RealVNC® or the majority of its assets are acquired by somebody else, in which case the personal information held by RealVNC® will be transferred to the buyer. We process your personal information for this purpose because we have a legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by the buyer. If you object to our use of your personal information in this way, the relevant seller or buyer of our business may not be able to provide services to you.
In some circumstances we may also need to share your personal information if we are under a duty to
disclose or share it to comply with a legal obligation.
