Privacy Policy

General Provisions
As a rule, Foregenix does not collect or retain personal data except for what data is strictly necessary in order to provide our services in a secure manner. For example, if you are a customer we will most likely request (and store) an email address as your user identifier in our portals and possibly other contact details such as a phone where we can reach you in case of emergency, a billing address for invoices and other similar data. Such data is stored in the most secure way, accessible on a strict need to know basis by authorised personnel for the sole purpose of providing our services. For legal reasons we must retain most such data for relatively long periods, but will never share it with a third party unless required by law, neither use it for any other purpose without your written approval. Please refer to the privacy addenda and consent forms of each service you might use, for additional clauses and provisions that might apply to it. If you have any questions or concerns about how your information is used please email us at support@foregenix.com.

Access Logs
All our websites record and retain access and error logs for security, accountability and identification of potential issues. A log includes always an Internet Protocol address, the URL that was accessed and the HTTP status code returned by us. Depending on the exact use case the log might include other online identifiers such as usernames, web browser versions, geolocation information. We might produce aggregated results from the logs such as total bandwidth consumed over a given period in order to properly size our infrastructure, or web browser versions used by our visitors for compatibility considerations. We use the logs as input to real-time processing systems which will alert us about security breach attempts and/or other issues with our services. For security and accountability reasons, logs are kept in online, searchable form for a minimum period of 3 months and in archived form for a minimum period of 1 year. Regardless of online status, logs are stored in encrypted form and access to them is possible by authorised personnel only, in a heavily audited and hardened environment. We will never attempt to match the logs to a specific individual, unless instructed by the individual in order to debug and resolve an issue they might be facing while using our website (for example inability to log on). We will never share our raw logs with a third party, unless required by law.

Cookies
All our websites use session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies identify visitors within a session, so that users do not have to enter their login details or other similar information (such as having passed the “prove you are not a robot” challenge) with every request. Permanent cookies identify users across sessions, i.e. allowing the server to remember things about you on your next visit. We use cookies to enhance your user experience, to provide you with our services and to obtain analytics which help us improve our website and tailor it to your needs. You can disable cookies but this might have a negative impact on your user experience and some services might not work as expected, or at all. Please see the section “This Website” for a detailed listing of the cookies used by www.foregenix.com and their purpose and expiration.

Data Processor
Foregenix does not engage in personal data processing as the term is defined by the GDPR. However, in many cases we provide our clients with various direct and indirect ways of uploading or storing data to our systems as part of our services and have very very little control over the content that is uploaded. Therefore, it is possible that personal data might find its way into our systems by accident, by deliberate abuse or attached to a client request the fulfilment of which would constitute personal data processing in terms of the GDPR. Should such an incident come in our attention, we shall take action which depending on the exact circumstances might include reporting the incident to the authorities. In any event, we will never process the data.
