As a ‘data subject’ – individuals of select states in the USA, member countries in the European Union (“EU”), the United Kingdom (“UK”), and Switzerland have a number of rights under the law with respect to Our use of your personal data. Altair is committed to honor your rights under applicable privacy law(s) for your jurisdiction:

Altair is committed to protecting the personal information you share with Us. We use a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and unauthorized access of your personal information under Our control. To accomplish this, at a minimum, We take the following steps:

  • We employ internal access controls to ensure that the only people who see your information are those with a need to do so to perform their official duties.

  • We physically secure the areas where We hold hard copies of the information We collect online.

We also limit access to your personal information to those agents, contractors, supplier partners, and other third parties who have a business need-to-know. They will only process your personal information on Our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

When you enter sensitive information, such as bank account information, We encrypt the transmission of that information using Transport Layer Security (“TLS”) technology. However, We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Us by email, and you do so at your own risk. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure; therefore, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where We are legally required to do so.
