1. The Information We Collect and Why; Basis for Collection. When using the Site or when you contact CBSUPER by telephone or e-mail, you may be asked to provide certain personal data about yourself (collectively and as defined in GDPR, “personal data” and sometimes called “personally identifiable information” or “PII” under other privacy laws):
a. Software and Content Licenses and Data: If you are a licensee or prospective licensee of our Products, we collect necessary personal data about you from you, and sometimes from a variety of other sources, including name, address, email, telephone. All such personal data is collected for necessary contractual reasons, so that CBSUPER can fulfill its pre-sales and other contractual obligations to you.

The personal data that must be collected to do business and collect and remit payment as appropriate includes name, address, email, phone, banking details. These payments all have HR/employment and contractual bases (we have no employees outside of the United States, but we do have a small number of overseas subcontractors).

5. Links. The Site contains links to other websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies which will govern your navigation on such websites. Please check such third-party site privacy policies before you submit any personal data to them. We are not responsible for the personal data/information collection and use practices of those other sites, and hereby expressly disclaim all responsibility and liability which may arise from your use of third-party sites.
6. Security. We use current industry standard technology and security procedures to maintain the confidentiality and accuracy of the personal data you provide to us and to prevent against its loss or misuse. Moreover, this Site is hosted by one of the largest secure third-party data centers, which maintains state-of-the-art security throughout its global data centers, with restricted access. Although no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and despite the care we exercise to provide a secure transmission, we cannot guarantee that the personal data you submit to us will be free from unauthorized third-party intrusion. You therefore understand and agree that all information you submit to CBSUPER or post on the Site is done at your own risk. In the event that we believe that there has been a security breach involving your personal data, we would endeavor to notify you promptly in accordance with applicable law. In the event such notification is appropriate under the circumstances, we would first try to notify you at the latest email address we have for you on record, subject to legal requirements.
7. Consent to Processing. By providing any personal data/PII to the Site, you fully understand and expressly and unambiguously opt-in and consent to the collection, processing and storage of such information in the United States, and to disclosure for the limited purposes set forth above, in the manner indicated in this Notice, provided that EEA residents will be subject to Section 10 below instead regarding consent.

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of this Notice at any time. Please check back periodically to see any updates or changes to our Privacy Notice. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these terms means you accept these changes.
9. Children’s Privacy. The Site is a general audience website not intended for any person under 18 years old. We do not knowingly collect personal data from any person under the age of 13. If you are under 13 and desire to purchase Products on the Site or to provide us with personal data/PII for any reason, please have your parent or guardian do this for you, or have them send a parental consent to us at .
10. For Residents of the EEA (GDPR Compliance). You are entitled to certain additional rights and protections when we process your personal data. Please see the paragraphs below for more details. CBSUPER may function as a data controller and data processor with respect to your personal data.
Cookies. With respect to web cookies and similar technologies that are not strictly necessary for our collection of personal data, CBSUPER seeks consent from users of the Site who are located in the EEA based on our Cookies Policy at the end of this Statement.
Legal Basis of Processing. The legal basis for most of CBSUPER’s processing of your personal data is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR, which allows processing of personal data as necessary for the performance of a contract. When you access, use or register with the Site, whether seeking to license Products from CBSUPER for personal or business use, or sharing personal data with CBSUPER as a contracted developer or composer so that CBSUPER is able to meet its payment obligations to you, you do so under a contract with CBSUPER, such as a software or content license, or a services contract, or you form a contract with CBSUPER based on the applicable Terms and Conditions, and we need to process your personal data to respond to your requests and satisfy our contractual obligations to you with respect to the other purposes listed in the Privacy Notice above.
CBSUPER also has legitimate interests under Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR with respect to certain situations where CBSUPER needs to process your personal data to comply with applicable laws (as a U.S.-based company, CBSUPER is subject to U.S. laws and must comply with them), provide adequate customer service, or improve our products and services. In these cases, we will ensure that your privacy and other fundamental interests do not override our legitimate interests.
Finally, CBSUPER relies on your consent with respect to cookies that are not strictly necessary and in the event that we collect any personal data from you for marketing purposes on the Site.
Personal Data Transfers outside the EEA. It is probable that some of your personal data will be transferred to our secure servers at a large third-party data center in the United States, a jurisdiction which may not provide adequate protection to personal data according to the European Commission. CBSUPER intends to provide an adequate degree of protection as required by GDPR, including where appropriate: entering into appropriate data transfer agreements based on language approved by the European Commission pursuant to GDPR Art. 46(5), such as the Standard Contractual Clauses, implementing appropriate physical, technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, alteration, loss, unauthorized disclosure or access, and other unauthorized or unlawful processing; and taking other measures to provide an adequate level of protection for onward transfers from the EEA in accordance with applicable law.
Data Retention. CBSUPER keeps personal data for as long as required to meet our obligations to you, often contractual requirements, and to comply with applicable law. For example, if you register with CBSUPER on the Site, we retain your personal data for as long as you have an account with us and thereafter for as long as required for us to comply with applicable law, fulfill our contractual obligations to you or defend our legal interests in connection with any claim or action we might face before a dispute resolution body. We take commercially reasonable measures to ensure that personal data is deleted, erased or anonymized as soon as possible once the purposes for which such data was collected have been fulfilled.
Data Subject Rights. You have a right to request from CBSUPER access to and rectification, updating or erasure of your personal data. You also have the right to request the restriction of processing concerning you, in which case such personal data would be marked and processed by us only for certain purposes. We will not charge a fee for this, provided the request is not excessive or unreasonable. In addition, you have the right to data portability, which allows you to receive from us personal data about you which you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, such as a CSV file. We will do this free of charge. If it is technically feasible, you can request that we transmit the personal data directly to another organization, rather than to you. We will respond to the request within 30 days, unless the request is complex or you send us multiple requests, in which case we can extend our response by another 2 months upon notice to you.
You also have the right to object to various data processing activities, including processing activities that are based exclusively on your consent or processing for the purposes of direct marketing. You can exercise such rights by accessing the information in your account and/or by emailing . Please note that these rights may be subject to limitations and conditions under the EU GDPR or applicable national data protection laws.
If our collection of personal data from you has been based on obtaining your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the EEA.
We may choose not to fulfill any request that we determine is illegal or incorrect, where we need to maintain the personal data because of our contractual or legal obligations, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy, or where the rights of persons other than the individual would be violated, but our intention is to comply with opt-out requests, and other requests that seek to correct, update or delete your personal data, as fully as possible in accordance with applicable law. You will also be given notice should we use your personal data for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or processed. We do not ask for, collect or knowingly receive sensitive personal data, i.e., personal data specifying medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, or information relating to sex life.
Profiling. CBSUPER does not use in connection with the Site or the services we offer automated decision-making in a way that produces legal effects concerning you or which significantly affects you.
