1. Personal Information
We collect Personal Data about you when you provide such information directly to us, when third parties such as our business partners or service providers provide us with Personal Information about you, or when Personal Information about you is automatically collected in connection with your use of our Services. Following is a description of the types of data we collect and the purposes of collection and processing.
1.1 Information We Collect Directly From You
1.1.1 Essential Account Data
We receive Personal Information directly from you when you provide it to us as part of creating an account, including, but not limited to, at least:
- Full Name
- Email address
These data are processed in order to provide you with Services and secure access to your account.
1.1.2 Contact Information
We may collect contact information for both present and prospective customers including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, title, and company name, from various sources, including offline marketing activities.
We process this information for marketing purposes and to provide support to present and prospective customers.
1.1.3 Online Form, Email, and Chat Data
When you fill out an online form, for example, to subscribe to a newsletter or engage in email or online chat communications with us, you may voluntarily supply us a contact and other information and we may also retain a record of any communications with you or activities you perform.
Data from these sources is processed in order to supply you with information that you request from us, and may be used for direct marketing and analytic purposes.
1.1.4 Third-Party Service Connection
Our Service allows you to connect various third-party services (“Third-Party Services”). When you connect a Third-Party Service and grant us permission to access your account, we never request or receive your log-in credentials for that Third-Party Service.
We use the OAuth authorization protocol to request a token from the Third-Party Service; the token then gives us access to your account to the extent authorized by you and permitted by that Third-Party Service.
1.1.5 Support Ticket Data
When you submit a support ticket through our systems, we will collect the company and contact data, and record activity related to your request.
Information submitted as part of support tickets is processed by us in order to provide help to you in using the Service, to contact you about your request(s), and to improve the Service.
1.1.6 Information We Receive From Third-Party Sources
1.1.7 Cookies and tracking technologies:
We also use technologies such as cookies, local storage (as defined below), scripts to collect information, provide a better user experience, and improve our services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your ID for future logins to the service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the service, to better understand how you interact with the service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the service. “Local storage” is a way for a website to collect and store information “locally” (e.g., on the user’s device rather than on the website’s server) and then later retrieve it again. Local storage includes “localStorage” and “sessionStorage.” By using local storage, a user’s visits can, for example, be stored on their own computer, counted, and then given to us.
1.2 Information We Automatically Collect When You Use Our Service
In addition, we collect anonymized usage data regarding the Service, which we may analyze and use to improve the Service.
2. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
Akiflow may use Personal Information provided to operate, improve upon, and personalize the Service, for billing identification and authentication, to contact and communicate with you about the Service and your use of the Service, to support the use of the Service, to send marketing materials (subject to your opt-in option), for research purposes, and to generally improve the content and functionality of the Service.
We may also combine your Personal Information with third-party analytics information to build a broader profile of our individual users to serve you better and provide custom, personalized content and information. Additionally, we may use the Personal Information we collect for identification and authentication and fraud prevention, to analyze Sites usage and improve the Service, for internal market research, troubleshooting problems, enforcing our Terms of Service, and as otherwise set forth in this Policy.
Note that we will never email you to ask for your account information; if you receive such an email, please forward it to [email protected]
3. Analytics and Logs
We may collect and use the analytic information from our own systems and from third-party analytics tools so that we can serve you better and improve the Service. Akiflow gathers certain information automatically from visitors to the Sites and stores it in log files.
This information includes internet protocol addresses as well as browser, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, search terms, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We may share the Sites log files with third-party analytics tools for marketing and product improvement purposes or otherwise. Furthermore, we may also use such analytic information, including contact and billing data, to personalize our services and products, and to provide customized prices and special offers. We may do so through fully automated systems.
In addition, Akiflow gathers anonymized usage data from users of the Apps and the Service. Before storing this anonymized usage data in Service-specific log files, we redact any Personal Information or other specific data, such as search terms entered in the Apps. We may share the Service log files with third-party analytic tools to analyze trends, administer and maintain the Service, track usage of various features within the Service, or otherwise as necessary to improve the Service.
Occasionally, we may connect Personal Information to information gathered in our log files, as necessary to improve the Service for individual customers.
4. Third-Party Service Providers
Akiflow shares Personal Information with its third-party service providers (such as its credit card processors and hosting partners) to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and other services we use to operate the Service and maintain a high-quality user experience.
Akiflow may store Personal Information in third-party marketing, CRM and mail-management software, in order to facilitate interactions with users or potential customers.
The updated list of the third-party service providers to whom we share with some Personal Information can be found here.
5. Other Information Sharing
In addition to the purposes described above, we disclose Personal Information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, on the legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may also share such information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.
We may share information, including Personal Information, with any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of Akiflow, which includes any entity that controls, is controlled by, or under common control with Akiflow.
6. Additional Limits on Use of Your Google User Data
- to use our Gmail integration, we require certain permissions from you. Specifically, we need permission to read and modify emails metadata in order to import emails as tasks, and then enable the unstar/unlabel function when you mark a task as done. Additionally, we need to be able to read the contents of emails to include the email subject in your Akiflow task. Please note that the authorization tokens to access your Gmail account are only stored on your device, and all operations on your emails are done by our desktop or mobile apps. This means that our servers have never access to your Gmail account and thus that the only Gmail data that is shared with us are those that are imported in tasks, i.e. the “date”, “from”, and “subject” fields.
- we will never access, read, or modify your emails for any other purpose, and will not transfer this data to others unless doing so is necessary to provide and improve these features, comply with applicable law, or as part of a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets.
- we will not use this Gmail data for serving advertisements.
- we will not allow humans to read this data unless we have your affirmative agreement for specific messages, doing so is necessary for security purposes such as investigating abuse, to comply with applicable law, or for Akiflow’s internal operations and even then only when the data have been aggregated and anonymized.
- our use and transfer to any other app of information received from Google APIs will adhere to Google API Services User Data Policy, including the Limited Use requirements.
7. User Data
The Service allows Users to connect to Third-Party Services in order to transfer data from those Third-Party Services into the Apps, periodically or on-demand, and store such data on the servers of the Service. Storing data in our server is done with the purpose of providing you with additional features, such as multi-device synchronisation of your data, and backup in case your device is not recoverable (lost/broken).
We transfer some of your User Data, such as data about your account (name/email/billing information/etc) to some third-party services (sub-processors) that help us run the Service.
