4. How we protect your personal information
While no service is completely secure, we are dedicated to keeping personal information safe. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing, of the personal information in our possession , for example, by password protecting (via usernames and passwords unique to you) certain parts of the website and software and by using SSL encryption and firewalls to protect against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. We employ security measures such as using firewalls to protect against intruders, building redundancies throughout our network and testing for and protecting against network vulnerabilities.
Where we have given you a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
If we learn of a security system breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using our website and software or providing personal information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of our website and software. We may post a notice on our website and software if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
5. How we retain your personal information
The precise periods for which we keep your personal information vary depending on the nature of the information and why we need it. Factors we consider in determining these periods include the minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made with respect to an agreement or other matter, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria. For example, the period we keep your email address is connected to how long your account is active, while the period for which we keep a support message is based on how long has passed since the last submission in the thread.
As users you can come back to us after an account becomes inactive, therefore we don’t immediately delete your personal information when your trial expires or you cancel all paid services. Instead, we keep your personal information for a reasonable period of time, so it will be there for you if you come back.
6. Data transfers
Personal information that you submit through the services may be transferred to countries other than where you live, such as, for example, to our servers in Portugal. We also store personal information locally on the devices you use to access the Services.
Your personal information may be transferred to countries that do not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information.
We rely upon several means to transfer personal information which is subject to the GDPR in accordance with Chapter V of the GDPR. These include:
Standard data protection clauses. We may, in accordance with Article 46 of the GDPR, transfer personal information to recipients that have entered into the European Commission approved contract for the transfer of personal data outside the European Economic Area.
Other means. We may, in accordance with Articles 45 and 46 of the GDPR, transfer personal information to recipients that are in a country in the European Commission or that a European data protection supervisory authority has confirmed, by decision, offers an adequate level of data protection, pursuant to an approved certification mechanism or code of conduct, together with binding enforcement commitments from the recipient to apply the appropriate safeguards, including as regards data subject’s rights, or to processors which have committed to comply with binding corporate rules.
