How long is the data stored for?

We hold on to our existing customers’ data for as long as they remain our active customers or while their contract is in power. Personal data gets destroyed as soon as it becomes unessential or needless or if the client decides to discontinue our services.

In case of website visitors, the data is on-record until a browsing session lasts i.e. the visitor closes his browser. However, individual browser settings might affect how long the data is stored. It is the visitor’s preference to adjust the settings of their browser according to their needs.

Who has access to the data?

We disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to employees, contractors and affiliated organizations who (i) need to know the information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at our websites, and (ii) those who have agreed to retain the privacy.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located in a different country; by using our websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above. Our discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of ours, third parties or the public at large. If you have registered at our website and have provided your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate information about our products, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to respond to your request or to help us support other users. We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

We may also be required to disclose an individual’s personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We acknowledge that all individuals have the right to access the personal information/data that we maintain about them.

To request any data removal, our team will get in touch with you within a week time.

If we were to transfer your data to the third party for any other purpose than it was originally collected or subsequently authorized for, we would provide you with an opt-out choice to limit the use and disclosure of your personal data.

Why is the data stored?

We only store personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract or a legal obligation e.g. in the UK we need to hold on to invoices and customers’ data for a minimum of 5 years after the end of a tax year.
