Connecting to SparkSync gives us some personal information about yourself. As you will enter some of your credential information in our databases, you want to be sure that this information is not abused anyhow. Therefore we want to explain you, how we will guarantee your privacy in following aspects:
If there are any issues that we do not cover in this document, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Information we collect
For the beginning, we are collecting as less information as possible from you or your usage. Still there are some important things that we will need to store in our databases about you.
We collect information in two ways:
How we use information we collect
We use the information we collect from our service to provide, maintain, protect and improve that, to develop new services, and to protect SparkSync and our users.
When you contact SparkSync, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our service appear in the language you prefer.
SparkSync processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Accessing and updating your personal information
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
Information we share
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of SparkSync unless one of the following circumstances apply:
We work hard to protect SparkSync and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
