Semaphore Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy defines our policy in relation to the collection, use, and protection of Customer Data to ensure a productive and secure customer experience. We may periodically update our Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our policy and the law. When we do so, we will post it on our website for your information and reference.

Your Rights as a Customer

Semaphore knows that you should be in charge of your Personal Information. To this end, Semaphore is mindful of the right to privacy of every Semaphore customer under the Data Privacy Act of 2012.

By creating an account and using the Semaphore service, you agree to the collection, processing, use, and sharing of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. This enables us to provide you with your desired Semaphore products and services.

You have the right to be informed of the Personal Information that we collect, process, use, and share. We can provide you with such Personal Information, provided that such Personal Information does not amount to information deemed confidential or proprietary by Semaphore, or that your request for Personal Information is not unreasonable.

You have the right to object or withhold your consent to the collection, processing, use, and sharing of your Personal Information. However, we may be constrained to terminate your Semaphore product or service as your Personal Information may be required to deliver such Semaphore product or service. Without your Personal Information, we will be unable to provide you with updates on Semaphore’s latest offerings; similarly, you will be unable to participate in our events, promotions, or other activities.

You have the right to suspend, withdraw, or order the blocking, removal, or deletion of your Personal Information in our systems upon discovery and substantial proof that your Personal Information is no longer necessary for the purpose or purposes for which it was collected, and for such other cases provided in the Data Privacy Act of 2012.

You have the right to seek indemnity for damages sustained, if any, due to inaccurate, incomplete, outdated, false, unlawfully obtained, negligent or unauthorized use of your Personal Information.

Should you feel that there has been mishandling or misuse of your Personal Information, or that any of your data privacy rights have been violated, you may email us at

We respect your privacy. We take paramount care in protecting your Personal Information. As such, we secure and protect your Personal Information with proper safeguards to ensure confidentiality and privacy; prevent loss, theft, or use for unauthorized purposes; and comply with the requirements of the law.

As Information Security threats continue to develop and evolve at such a rapid pace, we make reasonable and appropriate security arrangements and measures that use a variety of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect Personal Information. We regularly review our information collection, storage, and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to our system and unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold.

We only permit your Personal Information to be collected, processed, used, and shared by our authorized employees, contractors, and subcontractors who hold such Personal Information under strict confidentiality and in accordance with their contractual obligations and who have implemented minimum security features against data leakage, unauthorized access, or disclosure. We restrict access to information to Semaphore employees, contractors, and subcontractors who need to know such information in order to process it for us, who are subject to strict contractual and technical safeguards, and who are accountable if they fail to meet these obligations.

We only give you or your authorized representative access to your Personal Information. We do not provide, sell, or share your Personal Information to anyone unless you have given your express consent. We also do not use nor share your Personal Information with content and/or information providers without your prior request or consent.
