In providing our Services to subscribers of our Cloud and Colocation plans, or purchasers of our hardware (“Clients”), Lambda is a data processor as we process personal information on behalf and at the direction of the Clients. This Policy does not apply to Lambda’s processing when we are a data processor. If you have submitted personal information to a Client that is processed by us, you should directly contact that Client for assistance with any requests or questions relating to the processing of your personal information.
We may change this Policy from time to time at our sole discretion. We encourage you to frequently check this page for any changes to this Policy. Your continued use of our Services after any change in this Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change. If we change this Policy in a way that we believe materially affects how we process your personal information or reduce your rights, we will provide you with advance notice via email or by posting a prominent notice on our Sites.
1. Personal Information
Lambda collects certain personal information about you and your use of our Services. The definition of personal information (used interchangeably with “personal data” for European residents) depends on the applicable law based on your physical location. Only the definition that applies to your physical location will apply to you under this Policy. For purpose of this Policy, personal information does not include data that has been anonymized or aggregated so that it can no longer enable us, whether alone or in combination with other information, to identify you. From time to time, Lambda may release aggregated information by publishing a report on trends or usage on our Sites.
The personal information that Lambda collects falls into three primary categories: (1) information you voluntarily provide to us, (2) information we collect from you automatically, and (3) information we collect from third parties.
Information You Voluntarily Provide to Us. We, or service providers that assist us in providing, maintaining, and operating our Services, may collect the following types of personal information from you:
- Web Forms. We may collect your first and last name, email, company name, and phone number when you request demos, request a quote, apply for a discount, or would like to get in touch with us for other matters. Personal information that you provide by email or web forms will be used only for such purposes as are described at the point of collection (for example on a web form), such as to send information to you or respond to your questions or comments. If you provide contact information, we may contact you to clarify your comment or question, or to learn about your level of interest in, or satisfaction with our services.
- Order Information. When you place an order on our Site, we may collect information relating to the orders, such as, your full name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers), email address, and phone number.

Please be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them, including your username and/or the social media handle you opt to log in with when leaving a comment.
- Career Information. If you apply for a position at Lambda, we may collect your professional and education information such as your resume/CV, education and training experience, schools/universities attended, academic grades, degrees obtained, expected start date, physical location, and/or professional certification and licenses.

- Location Information. When you use our Services, we may infer the generic physical location of your device and the geographic regions you come from. For example, your IP address may indicate your general geographic region. For instructions on changing the relevant settings, please contact your service provider or device manufacturer.

10. International Transfers
Lambda’s business operates on a global scale. When you access or submit information to us, your personal information may be transferred to, processed, maintained, and used on computers, servers and systems located where the data protection laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we may transfer your personal information to the United States for further processing. We will take appropriate contractual or other steps to protect the relevant personal information in accordance with applicable laws.
We rely primarily on the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses to facilitate the international and onward transfer of personal information collected in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the United Kingdom and Switzerland (collectively “European Personal Information”), to the extent the recipients of the European Personal Information are located in a country that the European Countries consider to not provide an adequate level of data protection. We may also rely on an adequacy decision of the relevant regulatory body confirming an adequate level of data protection in the jurisdiction of the party receiving the information, or derogations in specific situations.
Lambda is responsible for the processing of personal information it receives and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Before we share your information with any third party, we will enter into a written agreement that the third party provides at least the same level of protection for the personal information as required under applicable data protection laws.
