Users must not share their username or password information with any other person. If Users believes their username and/or password has been misused, they should contact Rescale immediately.

Legal Bases for Processing – EEA Users

If a User is an individual in the EEA, Rescale collects and processes personal information about the User only to the extent Rescale has a legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws. This means Rescale collects and uses such User information where:

  • Rescale needs it to provide Users with access to the functionality of the Rescale Site and Services, including to operate the Rescale Site and Services, provide customer support and personalized features to protect the safety and security of the Rescale Site and Services;
  • It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by Users’ data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Rescale Site and Services and to protect Rescale’s legal rights and interests;
  • Users give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
  • Rescale needs to process User data to comply with a legal obligation.

If Users have consented to our use of their information for a specific purpose, Users may have the right to withdraw such consent, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place.

EEA Data Subjects Rights

Depending on the type of personal information and the purposes for collecting and using such information, each User has the following rights:

  • To request access to the personal information Rescale holds about the User;
  • To request that Rescale rectify or erase the User’s personal information;
  • To request that Rescale restricts or blocks the processing of the User’s personal information;
  • Under certain circumstances, to receive personal information about the User that Rescale stores and transmits to another without hindrance from Rescale, including the User requesting that Rescale provide the User’s personal information directly to another (i.e., a right to data portability); and
  • Where Rescale previously obtained the User’s consent, to withdraw consent to processing the User’s personal information.

To exercise these rights, Users can use tools provided by Rescale in the User account settings. Users can also contact Rescale at legal@rescale.com to exercise these rights. Additionally, Users have the right to complain to the supervisory authority in their country of residence.
