If some or all of this information is not collected, the main consequences include that we may not be able to deliver you products, services, or support, we may not be able to communicate with you, and we may not be able to respond to your comments and complaints.

Additionally, Informatica receives information about you from other third parties who you have authorized to disclose your information, or who collect information in connection with co-branded offerings.
Information We Collect at Our Facilities
If you visit our Facilities, the video security cameras we use to help protect our employees, visitors, and property may record digital images of you, and we may collect information from you to enable us to identify you for security purposes.
IV. Use of Information
- To provide the Services: We use your personal data to provide the Services to you, including processing transactions with you, authenticating you when you log in, delivering the products and services you request, and sending you related information, including confirmations and invoices;
- To maintain and improve our Services: In order to make our Services smarter, more secure, and better integrated, we use information and collective learnings (including feedback) about how you use our Services to troubleshoot, to identify trends, usage, activity patterns, and areas for integration, to improve our Services, and to develop new products, features and technologies that benefit our users. In some cases, we apply these learnings across our Services to improve and develop similar or new features, to better integrate the Services you use, or to provide you with insights based on how others use our Services;
- To communicate with you about the Services: We use your contact information to send transactional communications via email and within the Services, including confirming your purchases, reminding you of subscription expirations, responding to your comments, questions and requests, providing customer support, and sending you technical notices, updates, security alerts, and administrative messages. We also send you communications as you onboard to a particular Service to help you become more proficient in using that Service. These communications are part of the Services and, in most cases, you cannot opt out of them. If an opt out is available, you will find that option within the communication itself or in your account settings;
- To offer Customer Support: We use your information to send you technical notices, updates, security alerts and support and administrative messages; respond to your comments, questions and requests; and provide customer service;

We may also target advertisements to you on third-party platforms and websites (for more information, see XII. Choices and Means to Control Your Personal Data, below). These communications may be informed by audits of interactions (like counting ad impressions) and are aimed at initiating and expanding subscription and adoption of our products and Services and driving engagement and maximizing what you get out of the Services, including information about new features, survey requests, newsletters, and events we think may be of interest to you.

Before doing so, we take the necessary steps to help ensure that your personal data will be given adequate protection as required by applicable law.
We may also use the information we collect to generate de-identified data that cannot reasonably be used to identify you. In some jurisdictions, this data is not treated as personal data. For those jurisdictions, we will maintain and use the data only in a de-identified fashion and will not attempt to re-identify the data.
V. Legal Basis for Processing
When we process this personal data, we will only do so in the following situations:
- Although our contracts are generally with corporate entities and not directly with data subjects, it is conceivable that we may need to use your personal data to enter into and perform our responsibilities under a contract directly with you (including processing payments, providing our Services to you, or providing support) and to protect the security and safety of the Services. We may collect any information that is reasonably necessary to negotiate, enter, and fulfil the contract. The information collected for this purpose may include your business contact information and the order details, as well as information for the implementation of services.
- We have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data. For example, we process the personal data we collect from you to send you marketing communications, to communicate with you about changes to our Services, to enhance the safety and security of our Facilities, and to help provide, secure, and improve our Services.
- If we request your consent to a specific processing activity, and you provide your consent in the manner indicated.
- In some cases, processing will be necessary for compliance with a legal obligation. Legal obligations for which Informatica may process personal data are responding to legal process, processing data subject rights requests, and complying with export and sanctions laws.
If you have consented to our use of your personal data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent, but this will not affect the data processing that has already happened. Where we are using your information because we have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use, but in some cases, this may mean no longer being able to use the Services.
VI. Disclosure of Information
- With your consent or at your direction, including with third parties who participate in an Informatica joint marketing campaign, seminar, marketplace product offering or other joint product, service or event, and/or with distributors and resellers of Informatica products and services or with sellers of products and services complementary to Informatica products and services, for their sales and marketing purposes.
- With professional advisors, including lawyers, auditors, and insurance companies.
- If required by applicable law, regulation or legal process, including in connection with lawful requests by law enforcement, national security, or other public authorities.

VIII. Cross-Border Transfer of Information
Informatica processes information in the United States and other countries. Accordingly, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. Informatica generally transfers information to service providers in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the United States, although in some cases those service providers may transfer information to their own service providers, or we may transfer information directly to our service providers, in other countries including Australia, Brazil, India, and Singapore. We have implemented safeguards to ensure that your personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which we process it. Data transferred from the EEA to Informatica LLC and its subsidiaries in the United States will be processed pursuant to appropriate safeguards, including the European Commission-approved Standard Contractual Clauses to ensure an adequate level of protection. Copies of the Standard Contractual Clauses we use to facilitate the transfer of data outside the EEA are available at Appendix 2: Informatica Standard Contractual Clauses.

Although Informatica no longer relies upon the Privacy Shield for transfers of EU Data, Informatica has certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles with respect to such EU Data and continues to honor that commitment.

Under certain conditions specified by the Privacy Shield Principles, you may also be able to invoke binding arbitration to resolve your complaint. Informatica is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission. If Informatica discloses EU Data to a third-party service provider that processes the data solely on Informatica’s behalf, then Informatica may be held liable for that third party’s processing of EU Data in violation of the Privacy Shield Principles, unless Informatica can prove that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage
