WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT

This information may include account and profile information such as first and last names, email, telephone, billing address and communications sent to us by email or is provided when registering for, or using Arma or receiving support from the Arma team. Failure to provide necessary personal information may result in some services not being available for use.
Non-personal / aggregated information
We may collect non-personal information whenever users interact with Arma, such as browser name, device type and other information. This data may be generated by our systems to track information about Arma usage. This information does not identify individuals personally and is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
Consent must be obtained for any third person whose personal information is provided to us.
Arma uses first and 3rd party cookies. First-party cookies are owned and placed by Arma. 3rd party cookies are from another organisation we have partnered with (such as the Google Analytics cookie) to deliver our service, provide specific features or functionality and to make our sites easier to use. These cookies are also used to personalize our advertising messages.
Arma ‘essential’ first-party session-based cookies are used to:

We also use 3rd party cookies to compile anonymous aggregated usage statistics to assist us in our marketing. We cannot identify users personally from this information, and we are selective about the organisations we choose to partner with.
Partner data processing
Arma’s hosted solutions may be used for the collection, processing, and storage of personal data by Partners. This data may include information from end points, event logs, and other systems and tools that partners use to manage, monitor and provide services for their clients. In such cases, Arma acts as data ‘processor’. Arma Partners generally act as the data ‘controller’ determining what data to collect, how long it is stored and how it is used.
