Many of our products or services require some personal data to operate. If you choose not to provide data necessary to operate, you may not be able to use that products or services.

In some other cases, where providing the data is optional, and you choose not to submit personal data, you may be unable to use some features of products or services, like personalization, but this will not affect your using of other products or services offered by us.

1.2  Non-personal Data

Non-personal data refers to data that cannot be used to identify an individual. For example, we may collect aggregated statistics, such as the number of visitors to the Website. We collect this data to understand how people use our Website, products and services. This allows us to improve products or services to better satisfy users’ needs. We may, at our own discretion, collect, use, process, transfer, or disclose non-personal data for other purposes.

We endeavor to keep your personal data and non-personal data separate, and use each independently. If personal data is combined with non-personal data, it will be treated as personal data.

2. How Huawei Cloud Processes Your Personal Data

We may not use your personal data except in the following cases:

a)      Creating an account.

b)      Fulfilling your transaction or service requests, including fulfilling orders; delivering, activating, or verifying products or services; fulfilling your requests for changes or providing you with the requested information (such as marketing materials for products and services, and white papers); and providing technical support.

a)      The disclosure is mandatorily required in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

b)      We may disclose your personal data within the most limited scope, when appropriate, for protecting rights or property of Huawei Cloud, our customers and the public. For example, we may disclose your personal data, when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent or defend cyber threat, fraud, physical harm, or financial loss, or when it is in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

Like many other websites or Internet service providers, we use cookies to improve user experience. To be specific, the purposes are as follows:

a)        Cookies allow websites to remember your settings such as language, font size on your computer or mobile device, or other browser preferences. This means that a user does not need to reset preferences for every visit.

b)        We may count some data of advertising of Huawei Cloud, such as the times that advertising pops up on the Website and the situation of clicking advertising on other websites.

c)         Authentication. When you visit the Website, we may create a unique ID to identify you.

For example, if you are redirected to another web page from the Website you are already logged in to and then return to the Website, it will not recognize you and you must log in again.

d)         Statistics and analysis. For instance, we use cookie to count the number of visitors of the Website and to learn about sources of your visiting.

e)         Security. We use cookie to secure the operation of the Website.

4. How Huawei Cloud Protects Your Personal Data

We take personal data security seriously. We will take appropriate physical, organizational, and technical measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access, disclosure, use, modification, damage or loss. For example, we use encryption to ensure data confidentiality; we use trusted protection mechanisms to prevent malicious data attacks; we deploy access control mechanisms to ensure that only authorized personnel can access personal data; and we raise awareness among employees about the importance of protecting personal data through security and privacy protection training sessions. While we take the utmost care to protect your personal data, please note that no security measures are completely infallible. You can find more details of our security compliance at Huawei Cloud Security (https://www.huaweicloud.com/intl/securecenter/overallsafety.html).

We will retain your personal data for no longer than is necessary for the purposes stated in this Statement, unless otherwise extending the retention period is required by laws or requested by you. The data storage period may vary with scenario, product, and service. The standards we use to determine the retention period are as follows: the time required to retain personal data to fulfill business purposes, including providing products and services; maintaining corresponding transaction and business records as required by laws; ensuring the security of systems, products, and services; handling possible user queries or complaints and locating problems; whether the user agrees to a longer retention period; and whether the laws, contracts, and other equivalencies have special requirements for data retention; etc. We will maintain your account information as long as your account is necessary for service provision. You can choose to deregister your account. After you deregister your account, we will stop providing you with products and services through your account and delete your relevant personal data, provided that deletion is not otherwise stipulated by special legal requirements.

Although we protect your personal data, you are responsible for safekeeping your data including accounts and passwords.

If you find your account or password is used by others without your permission to log in to this Website, please notify us of this case promptly. You have the right to request us to suspend any unauthorized use of your account or password.

In case of any data breaches we found on your personal data we collected, stored and processed, we may inform you and/or the competent authority through publishing an announcement on Huawei Cloud website, sending you an email or other reasonable means according to the requirements of applicable laws and/or from competent authority. If your personal information is leaked due to reasons attributable to us, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you in a timely manner after confirming the consequence and root causes of the data breach.
