  1. Contact Information

To ask questions or comment about this Privacy Policy and our privacy practices, contact us at:


WaveMetrics is based in the United States, and our website is hosted here.  If you are visiting our website and/or use or access IGOR Pro from another country, the laws governing our collection and use of personal information may be different from the laws of your country. If you decide to visit our website, use IGOR Pro, or share your personal information with WaveMetrics, you agree to be governed by the laws of the United States, and you expressly consent to the transfer of your data to the United States, to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law.

EU GDPR Supplement

This supplemental policy is provided as a supplement to the WaveMetrics’ Privacy Policy to provide additional information to individuals who are in the European Union.  (If in the United Kingdom, you are subject to the UK-GDPR, which is virtually identical to the EU General Data Protection Regulation.)

The rights described below are based upon those provided to individuals in the European Union as required under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”): Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament. Residents of certain countries may have specific, different, or additional rights in relation to their personal data.

Is WaveMetrics complying with GDPR?

Yes, WaveMetrics is complying with GDPR through the information collection disclosures included in this document.

We reserve the right to keep customer data for a period of time adequate to ensure compliance and respond to follow-up inquiries. Pursuant to regulatory, legal, and security requirements in Chapter 2 of the General Data Protection Regulation this timeline is determined based on the type of data, the security implications of storing the data, the legal requirements WaveMetrics must meet with the data, and the privacy of the individual referenced in the data.

We take the security of our data very seriously and have a responsibility to the individuals we hold data on behalf of on our systems and servers. Please refer to the following headings below to review what kind of data we keep and the process to request, review, change, or remove data we hold.

Your Rights If An EU Subject

1.1 If you are EU subject, Data protection law gives you a number of rights when it comes to personal information we hold about you. The key rights are set out below. Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

1.1.1 Be informed in a clear, transparent and easily understandable way about how we use your personal information and about your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this policy. If you require any further information about how we use your personal information, please let us know.

1.1.2 Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

1.1.3 Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.

1.1.4 Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it (for instance, we may need to continue using your personal data to comply with our legal obligations). You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

1.1.5 Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to us using your information on this basis and we do not have a compelling legitimate basis for doing so which overrides your rights, interests and freedoms (for instance, we may need it to defend a legal claim). You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.

1.1.6 Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

1.1.7 Request the transfer of your personal information to another party where you provided it to us and we are using it based on your consent, or to carry out a contract with you, and we process it using automated means.

1.1.8 Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where we are relying on your consent (as opposed to the other bases set out above) to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

1.1.9 Lodge a complaint. If you think that we are using your information in a way which breaches data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with your national data protection supervisory authority (if you are in the UK, this will be the ICO).

If you are an EU or UK subject and want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us at
