Your consent

Where the law requires that we obtain explicit consent from you to collect and use your personal information (as for example when we want to send you marketing emails and you are located in Canada), we will not collect your personal data unless you give us your consent. To withdraw your consent from receiving marketing emails or other commercial electronic messages from Pythian, you may use the unsubscribe mechanism provided in the relevant email or contact us using the contact information provided above.    In most cases, however, the reason for us to collect and use your personal information is our need to fulfil our contractual obligations with you or your employer or to complete a transaction or provide you with information or services you have requested. When Pythian processes your personal data for these or similar reasons, Pythian is pursuing a legitimate business interest, and it relies on it as a lawful basis to process your personal data.
