Our role as data controller and data processor

We act in the capacity of a data controller and a data processor with regard to the personal data processed through the Site in terms of the applicable data protection laws, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our role depends on the specific situation in which personal data is handled by us, as explained in detail below:

  • Data controller. We are responsible for the collection and use of your personal data through the Site and we make decisions about the types of personal data that should be collected from you and purposes for which such personal data should be used. Therefore, we act as a data controller with regard to the personal data collected directly through the Site (for example, when you send us an inquiry or request a demo). We comply with data controller’s obligations set forth in the applicable laws.
  • Data processor. We act in the capacity of a data processor in situations when you submit information, files or generate data through the Site for processing (“Your Data”) and Your Data contains your or other individuals’ personal data. We do not own, control, or make decisions about Your Data. We process Your Data only in accordance with the instructions issued by a respective data controller. To ensure that Your Data is processed in accordance with the strictest data protection standards, we have drafted and offer for conclusion a data processing agreement (the “DPA”) that is available for consultation at A copy of your DPA can be received by contacting us at


This Statement covers only data collected through the Site and not any other data collection or processing, including, without limitation, data collection practices of webpages to which the Site links, or data that we or our affiliates collect offline or through webpages that do not display a direct link to this Statement.

Actively submitted personal data

Through the Site, we collect the personal data that you actively submit:

  • Demo request. When you request a demo, we collect your business email, first name, last name, company type and name, and country. We use such data to provide you with the requested demo. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘pursuing our legitimate business interests ‘(i.e., to grow and promote our business) and 'your consent'. We store such data until the demo is delivered.
  • Inquiries. When you contact us by using the “Drop us a line” functionality, we collect your business email, first name, last name, company type and name, and your country. When you contact us by email, we collect your name, email address, and any information that you decide to include in your message. We use such data to respond to your inquiries. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘pursuing our legitimate business interests’ (i.e., to grow and promote our business) and ‘your consent’ (for optional personal data). We store such data until you stop communicating with us.
  • Account data. If you have a registered user account on the Site, we collect your email address, first name, last name, phone number, company name, company address, company phone number, company website, and logo. We use such data to maintain your user account, provide you with the requested services, and maintain our business records. The legal bases on which we rely are 'performing our contractual obligations' and 'pursuing our legitimate business interests'.

Passively tracked data

When you visit the Site, we also passively track information on your computer and Internet connection, such as the IP address of your computer and/or Internet service provider, the date and time you access the Site, the Internet address of websites from which you link to our Site, the computer technology you are using and your movements and preferences on our Site. Such data does not allow us to identify you. Nevertheless, under certain laws, your IP address may be considered to be personal data. We collect passively tracked data primarily for purposes of administering, protecting and improving our Site and our systems, to better understand your preferences, to identify server problems, to compile aggregated statistics about Site usage. The legal basis on which we rely when processing such personal data is ‘pursuing our legitimate interests’ (i.e., to ensure security and proper functioning of the Site and examine the content available on the Site).

Combined data

Unless you also actively submit personal data such as your name or address, passively tracked data does not typically allow us to identify you personally (even though it can theoretically be done, we do not have the means or an interest to find out who you are, unless you identify yourself voluntarily through an active submission of data). To the extent permitted by applicable law, we reserve the right to combine passively tracked data with personal data that you actively submit. If it happens, we will treat such combined data as personal data and make sure that we have a legal basis for processing such data.

Processing of your data

When you use the Site, you may create and submit various types of personal data belonging to others. For example, when you add a new user to your account, you need to add user’s email address, first name, last name, role, and team information. When you add shipping information, it may also contain personal data. We process Your Data only for the purposes of performing our contractual obligations to you, maintaining the Site and our business records, as described in our DPA. We do not re-purpose Your Data. The legal bases on which we rely are ‘performing our contractual obligations’ and ‘pursuing our legitimate interests’ (i.e., provide the Site and administer our business).


We use technology that many other websites employ, namely, “cookies” or small data files stored on your computer’s hard drive, to collect such information. In some instances, we also use cookies to collect information in connection with future visits from that website, to recognize you as a previous visitor, or to track your activity on our Site. The lawful bases on which we rely are ‘pursuing our legitimate business interests ’(i.e., to analyse and promote our business) and ‘your consent ’(for non-essential cookies).

The newsletters sent by us may contain tracking pixels that allow us to conduct analysis of our marketing campaigns. Tracking pixels allow us to see whether you opened the newsletter and what links you have clicked on. We use such information to conduct analytics and pursue our legitimate business interests.

If we have your email address and it is necessary to do so, we may send you important informational messages, such as technical or administrative emails. Please note that such messages are sent on an “if-needed” basis and they do not fall within the scope of commercial communication that may require your prior consent.
