Your customers’ information
In order to power your business, we collect and use personal information about your customers. In general, we only collect and use this personal information as directed by you. Legally speaking, we are a“data processor” and a “service provider” as these terms are used in European, California and Hong Kong privacy law. We will never use your customers’ information to independently market or advertise to your customers unless they are also using one of our applications or services directly. We also do not and will not “sell” your customers’ information, as that term is used in California law.
Also, if you are collecting any “sensitive” personal information from your customers (for example, information about health, race, ethnicity, genetics, biometrics, trade union membership, political opinions, philosophical or religious beliefs, criminal history, or sexual interests), you should get the affirmative, express consent from your customers to use and process this information, if that is required under applicable data privacy laws.
Transfer outside of Europe and Switzerland
Please note that some of the recipients of your personal information referenced above will be based in countries outside of your country of residence whose laws may not provide the same level of data protection as your country. Where you reside in Europe or Switzerland, we may transfer your data to Mainland China and Hong Kong, China.
In such cases, we will ensure that there are adequate safeguards in place to protect your personal information that comply with our legal obligations. Where you are resident in Europe or Switzerland, to ensure this level of protection for your personal information, we typically use a data transfer agreement with the recipient based on Standard Contractual Clauses. Further details of the transfers of your personal information outside of your country of residence and the adequate safeguards used by us in respect of such transfers (including copies of relevant agreements) are also available from us by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
