Arcserve Privacy Notice

This document refers to personal data (here referred to as “data”) which is defined as information concerning a living person here referred to as “you” or “your” or otherwise a “data subject”. To the extent that visitors to our website are EU residents and to the extent that Arcserve provides goods and/or services to EU residents and/or collects data from such individuals, Arcserve is subject to the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (here referred to as “GDPR”) which is EU wide and which seeks to protect and enhance the rights of data subjects.

Arcserve is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and wants you to feel secure when visiting our site and providing information to us. In order to provide you with relevant information, respond to your requests, and increase the benefits you receive from our website, we sometimes request that you provide us with information about yourself. 

We have prepared this Privacy Policy to inform you of the information we gather and how it is used. This Policy applies to all Arcserve websites that display or link to this Privacy Policy and to all internal and external agreements that make reference to or link to this Privacy Policy.

What information do we gather? 

Contractual Information 

We collect information including names, email addresses, mailing and billing addresses and telephone and fax numbers from customers, potential customers and end users of our products and services for sales, marketing, order fulfilment and order delivery purposes. Arcserve will not deviate from this Privacy Policy even if applicable national laws are less stringent than this Privacy Policy. 

Online Information 

In general, you may visit our website without identifying yourself or revealing any personal information. Arcserve collects domain information from your visit to customize and improve your experience on our website. The website may collect certain information from your visit, including the date and time of your access, the pages you have accessed, the name of the Internet Service Provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address by which you are accessing the Internet, and the Internet address from which you linked to our site, if applicable. We use this information to better understand how our website is being used so that we can improve its quality and make it more beneficial to our users. 

Some portions of our website may request that you give us information about yourself, from which we are able to identify you, such as your name, email or other address. Some of the ways in which we may collect information from you are: 

Event registrations for webcasts, seminars, conferences, etc. 

  • Product support registration 
  • Education registration 
  • Subscription to newsletters or other Arcserve content-related notifications 
  • Product purchases or trials 
  • White paper or other downloads 
  • Sweepstakes or contests 

When you provide us with personal data about your contacts, we will only use this information for the specific reason for which it is provided, such as to add new records to your Arcserve account.

Legal basis for and legitimate interest in processing any personal data 

We collect, process and use personal data only as a part of our business relationship with our customers, including contract and billing administration; product and service delivery; fulfilling our business obligations to our customers and resellers; communicating with customers and potential customers about marketing and technical information concerning our products and services; notifying our customers and potential customers regarding product launches and important events related to Arcserve; and other related business activities of which you are informed at the time personal data is collected or as soon thereafter as practicable. We only collect data about individuals when such individuals specifically provide such information to us on a voluntary basis or while requesting information on our products or services. Additionally, we will only collect and retain data which is relevant to the purposes for which the information is collected, and we will not use it in a way that is incompatible with such purposes unless such use has been subsequently authorized by you. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that data is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete and current. We may occasionally contact you to determine that your data is still accurate and current. 

We may disclose data to our agents, resellers and business partners or to protect and defend the rights or property of Arcserve. We must reply to lawful requests from public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, for disclosure of data. 

We do not sell, lease, or rent personal data to third parties. 


Through agreeing to this Privacy Policy you are consenting to Arcserve processing your personal data for the purposes outlined. 

However, we will always give you an opportunity to choose to opt-out before your personal data is (1) disclosed to a third party (other than a Arcserve agent doing work at our direction), or (2) to be used for a purpose that is materially different than that for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. Although we do not ever anticipate providing sensitive personal data to a non-agent third party or using it for a purpose other than that for which it was collected, we will never do so without first allowing the individual involved to affirmatively and expressly consent (opt-in) to such transfer or use. The only exception to this choice for both sensitive and non-sensitive personal data would be where we are required to disclose your personal data pursuant to government or judicial order, law or regulation to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. 

At a minimum, you will always be able to opt-out from receiving marketing materials from Arcserve. If we determine that applicable national law requires that more stringent requirements (opt-in) be applied before you receive marketing material or other communications from us, we will implement the same. 

You can withdraw consent or opt-out at any time by emailing

How do we use the information we gather? 

When we collect information about you, it is our intention to tell you why we are asking for the information and what we intend to do with it. You will have the option of not providing the information, in which case you may still be able to access other portions of this website, although you may not be able to access certain programs or services. In certain areas of our website, we may, where appropriate, enable you to “opt out” of certain uses of your information, or elect not to receive future communications or services. 

The information we collect about you or your computer will be used to operate our website and to provide customer support, respond to your requests or process any transactions you have authorized. It may also be used to verify your identity, send you information or contact you in relation to an Arcserve product or service that you are using or that we believe may be of interest to you. 

Arcserve uses data about Arcserve customers and potential customers, partners, suppliers to perform the services requested. For example, if you fill out a “Contact Me” web form, Arcserve will use the information provided to contact you about your interest in the Products, Services or Events. 

Arcserve also uses data about Arcserve attendees to plan and host corporate events, host online forums and social networks in which event attendees may participate, and to populate online profiles for attendees on Arcserve’s web sites. Additional information on Arcserve’s privacy practices with respect to data about Arcserve attendees may be found in additional privacy statements on the event web sites, as the case may be. 

Arcserve may also use data about Arcserve customers and attendees for marketing purposes. For example, Arcserve may use information you provide to contact you to further discuss your interest in the product and services and to send you information regarding Arcserve, its affiliates, and its partners, such as information about promotions or events. 

Arcserve may also receive information about customers and attendees from other sources, including third parties from whom we have purchased data, and combine this information with data we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and create more tailored advertising to provide products and services that may be of interest to you.

Will we share this information with third parties? 

In certain instances, we may make your information available to third parties with whom we have a relationship where that third party is providing services on our behalf. We will only provide those third parties with information that is necessary for them to perform the services and we take measures to protect your information. These third parties are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide the requested services to us. Without limiting the foregoing, Arcserve may also share data about Arcserve visitors, customers and attendees with Arcserve’s service providers to ensure the quality of information provided, and with third–party social networking and media web sites for marketing and advertising on those web sites. Unless described in this Privacy Policy, Arcserve does not share, sell, rent, or trade any information with third parties for their own promotional purposes. 

We may also disclose the information to our business partners, for marketing and other purposes which we believe may be beneficial to you. These business partners are authorized by Arcserve to use your personal information only as necessary to provide the requested services to us. If you choose your information to be shared with Arcserve business partners in the manners described above, your information will be subject to the business partners’ respective privacy statements.
