The Showpad service measures the engagement of each party engaging through the service, anal-yses their behaviour and profiles them, as well as measure the attractiveness of content shared with them, to the extent they are interacting with the service within the online environment of the service as hosted by Showpad for and on behalf of NKT.
The Showpad service is offered as a “Software as a Service” (“SaaS”) model, which is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is centrally hosted and made available to multiple users over a network, including through interacting products (including front-end clients, apps, Web-Interface, plugins, or Connectors to third party applications).
