Coveo as a Service Provider

Coveo provides cloud-based services to its customers pursuant to a written agreement (“Cloud Service”).

For detailed information related to a Coveo customer using Coveo Cloud Service as a “controller”, you should contact the Coveo customer directly or refer to their privacy policy. In particular, if your Personal Information has been submitted to us on behalf of a Coveo customer and you wish to exercise your rights under applicable privacy laws, please direct your requests to the Coveo customer. If you contact Coveo for these purposes, we are required to inform the relevant Coveo customer of your request (to the extent that we can identify them from the information you have provided). 

We recommend that you read this Policy in full to ensure that you are fully informed about the manner in which we collect and use or otherwise process your Personal Information. You can also refer to a specific section of this Policy by clicking on the relevant link below:
