2.1 The Information on Users is divided into personally identifiable (PII) and non-personally identifiable information (Non-PII) depending on whether information, alone or with other information, can identify the User as a specific person. Information about legal entities does not fall within the scope of personal information.
Every piece of information we collect about you can be categorized into two types: 1) information which can be used to recognize you as an individual person such as your name, address, phone number... and 2) information that is completely anonymous and we can’t figure out who it belongs to, such as your browser type, version of operating system you use...
3.1 We may obtain some personally identifiable information about Users in order to provide Services.

- Other information which you choose to provide
We will only collect what we really need, no more, no less. For every piece of information we collect we have a compelling reason to do so. Depending on how you use our website and software we may collect your full name, email address, information about your use of the website and our software, and where you work. You may at some point also tell us more about yourself but don’t worry, we will keep it between us.
3.2 When entering into a contract for using our Services you have to provide your first and last name. Onify will only use this information to create an account for you and to address you whenever we contact you.

We need to know who we are entering into business with and who will sign agreements with us. For this reason we will collect your full name and use it to prepare the agreements and address you properly. You may also introduce yourself when you contact us even if you don’t use our services and we will address you by name when responding. We may learn about your name from the website of the company you work at, but only if you are listed as a contact person.

We need your email address to contact you. Whether we need to respond to your request when you contact us, send you information about our Services when you subscribe to our newsletter or if we found out about your email address from the company you work at and want to approach you about an offer, we will collect your email address and use it only for the specific purpose for which the information is obtained. If you only sent us a question to our email we will not respond by sending you hundreds of marketing emails. We are very strict when it comes to emails and don’t want to bother you unless you expect us to.
(C) Log files and usage data
3.6 We integrate security systems on our website to prevent malicious attempts and exploits of the website. We scan IP addresses and ban IP addresses that show malicious signs such as seeking exploits and similar. We process this information in the interest of protecting the integrity of the website and of the databases connected with it. We collect your IP address on the basis of a legitimate interest to maintain the integrity and safety of our databases.
3.7 The website and the software collect a series of general data and information when a person accesses the website or when they choose to send us software log files. Information that is collected may include (1) the software and browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the date and time of access to the Services, (4) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (5) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
3.8 We collect this information for breach investigation purposes and for providing customer support. When using this information, we may connect specific log files with specific Users. This information is needed to (1) troubleshoot problems and correct system bugs, (2) deliver the content of our website and Services correctly, (3) optimise the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (4) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (5) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.

How you use our website is very important to us. Some people may try to ‘hack’ our website; others may have a problem viewing the content while some may experience issues with the functionality. In each of these cases your machine is communicating with the server where the website is hosted and the server is keeping track of those communications. We can use this data to protect us from attacks, to fix bugs and issues, and to display the appropriate content to your browser. You may also experience issues with the software and we can only fix them when we know what’s “under the hood” and what happened that caused the issue. Sometimes, although not always, these pieces of data may contain personal information such as your IP address.
(E) Other Information
3.9 You may at some point choose to provide other information which is not required for the proper functioning of the Services. In all such cases we will use this information only for the purpose for which you disclosed it. If we are not sure as to why you are providing such information we will contact you wherever possible. Otherwise we will delete such information.
It is possible that when we communicate you may disclose some personal information that is not listed in this document. Maybe you want to tell us about the school project that was similar to our software or that you have a birthday coming up. We promise that we will not misuse this information.
3.10 Some Services will not be available to you if you do not provide the requested Information. We may keep records of any questions, complaints or compliments made by you and the response, if any. Whenever you contact us, we shall collect any information which you choose to provide. We shall store and use this information only for the purpose of responding to your enquiries. Information contained within the enquiry, free from any personally identifiable information, will be stored on our servers for the purpose of improving our Services and providing the best customer support possible.
If you don’t tell us who you are, we can’t enter into an agreement with you. Similarly some services can’t function if we do not have your information. On the other hand we will not ask for your information unless we absolutely need to have it. If you send us something we will only keep it if we can remove any trace of your personal information.
3.12 We may disclose your personal information to our partners, agents and operators under confidentiality or similar agreements, including data processors who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information: (i) to provide Services per your request; (ii) to administer our business or the website; (iii) to provide customer support; (iv) to update account information; (v) to forward updates, announcements, and newsletters; (vi) to respond to your communications, and communicate with you about the website and other activities related to the Services; (vii) in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or disposition of all or any portion of Onify’s business or operations (including without limitation in connection with bankruptcy or any similar proceedings); or (viii) as otherwise authorized by you.
We only use your information for us. We will not sell it, rent it, publicly display it or do anything else that will lead to your information getting into the wrong hands. However, we may share your information with our contractors and subcontractor but they may only use your information under our control and only for the purposes you allowed or knew about.
3.13 We have implemented security procedures and measures in order to ensure appropriate protection of the information we process, against any misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification.
3.14 We acknowledge that the safety of your information is one of the highest priorities and therefore only authorized processors have access to your information. Although we take all appropriate measures in respect to keeping your information secure, you understand that no data security measures in the world can offer 100% protection. If we ever find or suspect a personal data breach we will without delay, within seventy-two (72) hours after becoming aware of it, notify the appropriate supervisory authority about the breach and Users where necessary.
We do our best to keep your data secure. Unfortunately, no security system is 100% secure so just in case we had prepared an “emergency plan” if we ever get breached. We will also notify the authorities as soon as possible about any suspected data breach. We will also aim to notify you if we have your contact information.
3.15 The processing of the information is being performed automatically, without human intervention. However, whenever you contact us through email, the information within the email will be handled and processed by a real person in order to provide you with the answer to the email.
We process your information automatically. A real person will process your data only when we need to communicate with you. We do this to minimize possible data leaks.
4.1 Information will be stored on secure servers hosted by Onify AB, Intercom R&D Unlimited Company or by ReadMe.io Co. depending on the Services used. We aim to keep all the information on servers located in the EU but sometimes our data processor may host information on servers located outside of EU in countries deemed adequate by the European Commission, or in countries which the European Commission has not deemed inadequate, provided that such countries implement appropriate and suitable safeguards regarding the security of personal information. In any event, hosted servers are controlled and maintained in accordance with sufficient privacy safeguards.
We will keep your data within EU and transfer it to other countries only if we need to use subcontractors from such countries. Before we send data to anyone we make sure that they will handle it securely and that no additional risks are involved with such transfers.
