Your privacy is important to us. It is Pringa Technologies Ltd’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website, https://pringa.io, and other sites we own and operate. Pringa is based on the premise of keeping most of the user experience within Slack. As such, it makes an effort to store the minimum amount of data required to run the service and to collect analytics to improve it.
Any reference to “you” throughout, shall be deemed to refer to underlying data subjects for which you are a data controller, as appropriate.
By signing into your Slack account on the Website, you grant us access to and permission to process personal data in your Slack account and, if you are a data controller of personal information, to process personal data of the Slack user accounts you give us access to by installing the Pringa app.
1. Information we collect
When you visit our website, our servers may automatically log the standard data provided by your web browser. It may include your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version, the pages you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on each page, and other details.
This means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
We may ask for, or receive from Slack after your approval, personal information, such as your:
- Name (first name and last name)
- Slack username
When using one of our paid offerings, we may also ask for the following information:
- Credit card information (processed directly by our payments provider in a manner compliant with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard)
- Billing address
- VAT identification number
Business data refers to data that accumulates over the normal course of operation on our platform. This may include transaction records, stored files, user profiles, analytics data and other metrics, as well as other types of information, created or generated, as users interact with our services.
We may receive information about you through Slack. We are also working closely with third parties (including, for example, business partners, suppliers, sub-contractors, analytics providers, and search information providers) and may receive information about you from them.
2. Legal bases for processing
We will process your personal information lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner. We collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so.
These legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them, meaning we collect and use your information only where:
- it’s necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract (for example, when we provide a service you request from us);
- it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, and to protect our legal rights and interests;
- you give us consent to do so for a specific purpose (for example, you might consent to us sending you marketing emails); or
- we need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
Where you consent to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time (but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place).
We don’t keep personal information for longer than is necessary. While we retain this information, we will protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. That said, we advise that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure and cannot guarantee absolute data security. If necessary, we may retain your personal information for our compliance with a legal obligation or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.
3. Collection and use of information
We may collect, hold, use, and disclose information for the following purposes and personal information will not be further processed in a manner that is incompatible with these purposes:
- to provide you with our platform’s core features;
- to process any transactional or ongoing payments;
- to contact and communicate with you; and
- for internal record keeping and administrative purposes.
Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to our marketing communications.
The data that you instruct Slack to pass to Pringa is stored, so that interaction with the Slack API is possible. This includes access tokens, as well as team/workspace, channel, and user metadata.
By design, Pringa has very little access to the data in your Slack workspace: Pringa cannot view any messages or activities in any of your channels or conversations it is not part of, and it also does not have access to any of your files. In addition to the team/workspace, channel, and user metadata mentioned above, Pringa only receives data when you or another user on your workspace actively engages or interacts with Pringa. This could be in the form of creating an onboarding, asking for feedback, etc. In these cases, the content of the onboarding or feedback represents data that is processed and stored by Pringa.
The use of the Pringa service is not permitted for children under the age of 16. If you are aware of anyone under the age of 16 has supplied us with personal data, please contact us so that we can take steps to delete such information.
4. Disclosure of personal information to third parties
We may disclose personal information to third-party service providers for the purpose of enabling them to provide their services, including (without limitation) IT service providers, data storage, web-hosting and server providers, professional advisors, and payment systems operators.
Pringa does not display any advertisements and does not share any data with advertisers.
5. International transfers of personal information
The personal information we collect is stored and processed in the United States, or where we or our partners, affiliates, and third-party providers maintain facilities. By providing us with your personal information, you consent to the disclosure to these overseas third parties.
Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US. For further details, see the European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
6. Your rights and controlling your personal information
Restrict: You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information. If you have previously agreed to us using your personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may change your mind at any time by opting out by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you ask us to restrict or limit how we process your personal information, we will let you know how the restriction affects your use of our website or products and services.
Access and data portability: You may request details of the personal information that we hold about you. You may request a copy of the personal information we hold about you. Where possible, we will provide this information in CSV format or other easily readable machine formats. You may request that we erase the personal information we hold about you at any time. You may also request that we transfer this personal information to another third party.
Correction: If you believe that any information we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant, or misleading, contact us at email@example.com. We will take reasonable steps to correct any information found to be inaccurate, incomplete, misleading, or out of date.
Notification of data breaches: We will comply with laws applicable to us in respect of any data breach.
Complaints: If you believe that we have breached a relevant data protection law and wish to make a complaint, please contact us using the details below and provide us with full details of the alleged breach. We will promptly investigate your complaint and respond to you, in writing, setting out the outcome of our investigation and the steps we will take to deal with your complaint. You also have the right to contact a regulatory body or data protection authority in relation to your complaint.
We rely on “cookies” for certain functionality of the Pringa service. A cookie is a small piece of data that our website stores on your computer, and accesses each time you visit, so we can understand how you use our service.
8. Business transfers
If we or our assets are acquired; or in the unlikely event that we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, we would include data among the assets transferred to any parties who acquire us. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any parties who acquire us may continue to use your personal information according to this policy.
