Privacy policy

Last updated: Nov 08, 2020

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.

We will only process personal information in accordance with the Data Protection Legislation which for the purposes of this privacy policy shall mean: (i) unless and until the General Data Protection Regulation ((EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”) is no longer directly applicable in the UK, the GDPR and any national implementing laws, regulations and secondary legislation, as amended or updated from time to time, in the UK ;(ii) any successor legislation to the GDPR or the Data Protection Act 2018 and other applicable privacy laws; and (iii) any other privacy legislation worldwide, applicable to Pringa Technologies Ltd’s business.

Where you contract with us to provide the service to you, we will act as data processor and you will act as data controller. This privacy policy forms the basis of the instructions to us, under which we will process relevant personal data, and comply with GDPR.

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

Log data

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.

Personal information

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)
  • Email
  • 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

Log data

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.

We may also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your usage data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy. We do not collect any special categories of personal data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions and offenses.

 

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.

If you are a customer, you will only be contacted if you agree to it (by agreeing to this privacy policy). In addition, if you don’t want us to use your personal data for any of the other reasons set out in this privacy policy, you can let us know at any time by contacting us at privacy@pringa.io, and we will delete your data from our systems. However, you acknowledge this will limit our ability to provide any service to you.

Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to our marketing communications. 

Slack

Pringa is an app for the Slack service and integrates tightly with it. Almost all data that Pringa collects originates from Slack. As such, you may find it useful to review the relevant Slack policies including the Slack privacy policy. You can find it at: https://slack.com/legal

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.

Age limitations

 

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.

We will ensure that any transfer of personal information from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries outside the EEA will be protected by appropriate safeguards, for example by using standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission, or the use of binding corporate rules or other legally accepted means. Your acceptance of this privacy policy shall be your consent to permitting us to store or transfer data outside the EEA if it is necessary for us to do so.

 

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

Choice and consent: By providing personal information to us, you consent to us collecting, holding, using, and disclosing your personal information in accordance with this privacy policy. If you are under 16 years of age, you are not permitted to use this service. You do not have to provide personal information to us, however, if you do not, it may affect your use of this website or the products and/or services offered on or through it.

Information from third parties: If we receive personal information about you from a third party, we will protect it as set out in this privacy policy. If you are a third party providing personal information about somebody else, you represent and warrant that you have such a person’s consent to provide the personal information to us.

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 privacy@pringa.io. 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.

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 privacy@pringa.io. 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.

7. Cookies

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.

9. Limits of our policy

Our website may link to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and policies of those sites, and cannot accept responsibility or liability for their respective privacy practices. Similarly, Pringa is an app for the Slack service and as such, you may find it useful to review the relevant Slack policies including the Slack privacy policy. You can find it at https://slack.com/legal

10. Changes to this policy

At our discretion, we may change our privacy policy to reflect current acceptable practices. We will take reasonable steps to let users know about changes via our service. Your continued use of this service after any changes to this policy will be regarded as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information.

If we make a significant change to this privacy policy, for example changing a lawful basis on which we process your personal information, we will ask you to re-consent to the amended privacy policy.
