<img alt="iapp-bronze-meber-badge.svg" src="" style="width: 120px; height: 120px;" />

Scope & Introduction

Thanks for entrusting PTC Inc. and its Affiliates (“PTC,” “we,” "us," or "our") with your Personal Information. This Privacy Statement explains our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal information when you use a PTC Inc. SaaS Service, such as Onshape, ServiceMax, or Arena Solutions, either as an individual or as a user granted access to the service by a PTC customer (“Organization”), including accessing those services through PTC Inc. mobile apps such as Vuforia View, Onshape 3D CAD, ServiceMax Zinc, or ServiceMax Engage.

This Statement sets out how and why Personal Information we collect from you or that you provide to us through the Service or app (collectively, the "Service") will be used. This SaaS and Mobile App Privacy Statement is supplemental to PTC’s Privacy Statement, which provides details of PTC’s processing of Personal Information in circumstances not covered in this Statement, for example, when visiting a PTC facility or signing up for a webinar or training course. PTC’s Privacy Statement also sets out your rights with regard to your Personal Information and how you can exercise them.

This Statement covers only information collected from or about you as a user of a Service or app. Occasionally we may refer to this Statement in notices and emails related to the Service. Under such circumstances, this Statement applies as modified in the particular notice, e.g., with respect to types of data collected or purposes of collection.

Effective: January 1, 2024

1. What Personal Information do we collect when you are using PTC Services?

When a Service account is created either directly by you or when an account is created on your behalf by an Organization, we collect data such as your name, email address(es), phone number(s), and/or profile photo, Organization, role, or job title.

When you use the Service, we automatically receive and record data from the device you are using and network connection, this information may include the device model identifier, operating system identification, network signaling, IP address, date and time you use the Service, performance of the Service, and any features of the Service that you use.

When you install an app relating to the Service, you may be asked to grant access to your mobile device’s notifications, camera, and microphone features. Your permission for the Service to access these features is needed for the app to function properly and for you to receive the full benefits of the Service. If you grant permission to access these features, we may collect information about how you use them when using the Service.

For certain Services, we may also ask you to grant access to your contacts. This is simply to facilitate your use of the app, its features, and the Service. We will not collect or use any of your contacts information unless you give us permission and only then we will use that information to enable you and your contacts to use the Service.

Where a Service includes mobile communication with another user of the Service, or you wish to invite a contact to use the Service (such as Vuforia Chalk or ServiceMax Zinc) you will enter a call with another user and therefore are transmitting voice and video via the internet. We do not view or listen to the content of your calls made via any Service, and we do not store your audio or video once they have been delivered to their destination, unless this is a particular feature of the Service that you or your Organization control.

2. How do we use your Personal Information?

We use the data we collect for the following general purposes:

  • To administer, protect and improve our Service;
  • To communicate with you regarding the Service;
  • To provide you with information to you about related products, offers, and services;
  • To allow other users of the Service to contact you via the Service if they have your email address or phone number;
  • For any other use we describe at the point where we collect the information;
  • For any business purpose if the data is not in personally identifiable form; and
  • When aggregated and anonymized to develop new products and services.

3. Where do we store and process data?

The information that you provide to us may be collected, transferred, and stored in various locations, including in the United States of America, Asia, the European Economic Area (EEA), or other locations. By submitting your Personal Information, you agree to this transfer, storing, and processing. The transfer of Personal Information from the EEA, UK, and Switzerland is governed by a Global Data Transfer Agreement based on the EU Standard Model Clauses between PTC’s EEA, UK, and Swiss subsidiaries and its non-EU Affiliates.

4. Information integrity

We will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information about you is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. You are responsible for the accuracy of all Personal Information you provide to us. As a registered user of the Service, please be sure to update your Personal Information promptly if it changes or becomes inaccurate. All Personal Information will be removed from our systems when you deregister or close your account.

5. Disclosures of Personal Information

We do not share your Personal Information with others, except as follows: We share your Personal Information within PTC and its Affiliates wherever they may be located. We also may share your Personal Information with third parties who process the data on our behalf for the purposes set forth in this Statement.

6. How do we protect Personal Information?

Transmissions over the internet are never 100% secure or error-free. However, we take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. It is your responsibility to safeguard any password you use to access the Service and to change your password if you suspect that it has been compromised. You are solely responsible for any unauthorized use of the Service conducted with your account. Please see PTC’s Trust Center for more information about PTC’s cybersecurity practices.

7. Personal Information relating to Children who are under 13 (or under 16 in the EU)

Except for our products or Services that are being used for educational purposes in a school or college context, our sites are not intended for children under the age of 13 (16 years of age for EU residents). We do not intentionally or knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under these ages.
