Welcome!

The Privacy Policy posted on this Site was updated on or about October 15, 2018.

EnterpriseDB has created this privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") to demonstrate our commitment to protecting an individual's right to protect his/her personal data. What do we mean by personal data?  

‘Personal data’ means any information relating to a person that can be used to identify such person, directly or indirectly.  For instance, using an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

This Privacy Policy is effective as to websites, events, and other services operated by EnterpriseDB and incorporates by reference our Terms of Use. Terms with initial capital letters used in this Privacy Policy shall have the respective meanings assigned to them in the Terms of Use, unless specifically defined in this document. The terms "EnterpriseDB," "we," and "our" refer to EnterpriseDB Corporation. The terms "you" and "your" refer to any individual who accesses and uses any of our services, including our websites and online services, including www.enterprisedb.com (the “Website”); and our live events and conferences (“Events”), and surveys, contests, and sweepstakes (together, the “Services”).

By using this Website, you freely and knowingly consent to the collection and use of information as described herein. EnterpriseDB reserves the right to make changes periodically to this Privacy Policy in our sole discretion. Changes to the Privacy Policy will be posted on this page. Your continued use of this Website after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the changes and of the revised Privacy Policy.
