To ensure this protection, Audacie will only collect, process, and share personally identifiable information with the consent of the individual, unless permitted or required by law, in which case your consent will not be required.
Accordingly, the purpose of this policy is to inform you of why and how Audacie, or anyone acting on its behalf, collects and uses personal information in connection with our business activities. We retain personal information only if necessary to meet our business, regulatory, and legal requirements.
For this policy, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable individual or information that allows an individual to be identified.
- Consent Procedures
To collect personal information from an individual, it is necessary to obtain his or her consent. The form of consent may vary depending on the circumstances and the type of information sought.
At Audacie, we are committed to obtaining consent, whether express or implied, from you or your authorized representative, before collecting personal information. In determining the appropriate type of consent, we consider the sensitivity of the personal information involved, the purposes for which it is collected, and the reasonable expectations of a similarly situated individual.
If we wish to use personal information for a new purpose, we will describe the intended use to you and seek your consent again.
- Personal Information Collected
Audacie collects personal information for the purposes disclosed to you, as described in this Policy, or as permitted or required by law.
The personal information collected, as well as its sensitivity, may vary depending on the context of the interactions between you and Audacie. Therefore, we must first inform you of the nature of the personal information we use.
Confidential information may include, but is not limited to, the following:
Names and Contact Information: Name or other unique identifier, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, e-mail addresses, and other similar data used to communicate with you.

- Use of Personal Information
Audacie attaches the utmost importance to the security of your personal information and undertakes to treat it under industry norms and standards, solely for the purposes for which it is collected, as described in this policy or in a specific notice to that effect. However, given the security limitations inherent in transmission via the Internet, it is impossible to safeguard your personal information. Information transmitted to us is therefore ultimately at the user’s own risk.
Here are some of the reasons we collect your personal information:

To Meet Legal, Regulatory, or Risk Management Obligations: Data is collected to meet obligations arising from laws, regulations, or international treaties.
For Any Other Use Required by Applicable Laws.
- Access to and Control of Personal Information
Audacie ensures that all personal information in its possession is as accurate, current, and complete as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.
You have the right to request access to your personal information for verification purposes and to request a correction if your personal information is inaccurate. If you believe that your personal information is inaccurate, or if you wish to have access to your personal information, you may make a request using the contact information provided at the end of this policy.
To the best of our ability, we will provide you with timely access to your personal information. However, for security reasons, we may need to verify your identity.
In addition, there may be circumstances where we will not be able to provide you with access to your personal information. When access may lead to the disclosure of another person’s personal information and that person refuses to consent to its disclosure, or when legal restrictions apply. If such a situation arises, we will advise you of the reason why we cannot provide you with access to your personal information.
- Disclosure to Third Parties
We do not share your personal information with companies, organizations, or individuals outside Audacie, except for our authorized suppliers and partners who need access to the information for the purposes listed in this policy and within the limits of this policy, as well as in the following cases:
- With your consent.
- For storage on cloud servers, in which case personal information may be transferred to third-party jurisdictions. Please note that we only retain the services of reputable companies with privacy policies.
- For legal reasons: We may transfer personal information outside our company if access to such information is necessary to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
Audacie will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.
