Synchronize Communities Limited (“us”, “we” or “our”) respects your privacy, and we are committed to protecting it by complying with this policy (our “Privacy Policy”).

Through our software, Synchronize (the “Software”), we enable you to engage with online
communities (each a “Community”) through certain third-party communication platforms (each a “Communication Platform” and, together with a Community, the “Integrations”).

In this policy, we explain how we collect, use, process, and share your information when you access and use the Software, facilitating your communications through the Integrations. This Privacy Policy will also apply when you use our website, (the “Site”), or communicate directly with us.

When we talk about your “information” in this policy, we are referring to information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, and is reasonably capable of being associated with your, your household, or a device of yours. It does not include information that is not personally identifiable, like aggregated or anonymous information, however.

Additionally, our Privacy Policy does not apply to the privacy practices and policies of any third parties, except to the extent we use third parties to store or process your data. The third parties you engage with should have their own privacy policies, and we are not responsible for them.

If you have any questions, concerns or requests relating to this Privacy Policy, please contact us at (our “Contact Information”).

International Processing, Transferring and Storing Your Information

We may choose to process, transfer or store your information in countries different from where you live. These countries may have different privacy laws, and their laws may be less comprehensive than the privacy legislation applicable to our relationship with you. Nevertheless, we will implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure our contractors and service providers protect your data.

By using our Site or providing your information to us, you agree to us processing, transferring, or storing your information in other countries. 

If you are resident in or a visitor from the EEA, United Kingdom or Switzerland, we will protect your information when it is transferred outside of your country by processing it in a territory which the European Commission has determined provides an adequate level of protection for personal information, or by implementing appropriate safeguards to protect your information by using Standard Contractual Clauses or another lawful transfer mechanism approved by the European Commission.

Data Security & Retention

Protecting your information is important to us. That is why we take steps to protect your information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We use various methods to protect your information, including using electronic systems and processes to maintain the security of your data. All the steps we take to protect your information will be commensurate with the sensitivity of the information we collect, and reasonable in the circumstances.

Despite our efforts, however, using the internet is never risk-free. Sharing data over the internet is rarely done securely. As a result, please remember that you use our Software, Site and the internet at your own risk. We cannot guarantee the security of your data sharing, and we are not responsible for the associated risks.

To help protect your data safe, however, we will not store your data for longer than we need it, unless you agree otherwise or the law permits us to keep the information for a longer period of time. Nevertheless, if we anonymize your data, you agree we may use that anonymized information as we choose and keep the data for longer periods of time.

  • For Legal Reasons. We may share your information if we believe that it is necessary to
    comply with any court order, law, legal obligation, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request. Likewise, we may share your information if we believe that it is necessary to enforce our rights or the rights of our customers or users, or if we believe that it is necessary or appropriate to protect our rights or safety or the rights or safety of our customers, other users, partners, or service providers.

Accessing and Updating Your Information

Privacy laws around the world typically give you the right to request access to the information we collect about you and often allow you to correct outdated information. We strive to keep the information we collect accurate and current, and we invite you to contact us when your information has changed. 

In accordance with our data retention practices and applicable law, we may destroy or limit access to certain information we collect about you. If we are unable to provide you with access to your information, we will explain why (subject to applicable law about these sorts of disclosures).

Certain jurisdictions – like the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom and California – may impose added privacy requirements when their residents engage with our Site. When applicable, we provide additional rights to those customers as follows.

Certain European Customers

In compliance with certain privacy laws, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we provide specific additional rights for certain European customers. If you are a resident of Switzerland, the United Kingdom, or a country within the European Economic Area (EEA), you may have rights under European data protection laws regarding the processing of your personal information. If these data protection laws apply to you, you may have the right to:

  1. To request information about whether and which personal data is processed by us, and the right to demand that personal data is rectified or amended.
  2. To request that personal data should be deleted.
  3. To demand that the processing of personal data should be restricted.
  4. To withdraw your consent to the processing and use of your data completely or partially at any time with future application.
  5. To obtain your personal data in a common, structured and mechanically readable format.
  6. To contact us with any questions, comments, complaints or requests in connection with our statement on data protection and the processing of your personal data.
  7. To complain to the responsible supervisory authority if believed that the processing of your personal data is in violation of the legislation.

With respect to the information that our customers collect or process using the Software, our customer is the data controller, and we are a data processor. Our customer is the data controller for the content or information that they use the Software to process. Our customer is responsible for obtaining any necessary consent and/or ensuring that the customer has a lawful basis for processing personal information.

Where we collect information for our own purposes, like when we collect information when you visit the Site or when we collect information about your use of the Software, we are the “data controller.” Our lawful basis for collecting this information is to fulfill our agreement(s) with you, our legitimate interest in providing the Site and the Software, or to comply with our legal obligations. In some instances, our lawful basis for processing your information may be your consent.

We will retain information for as long as necessary to provide our services to you, to comply with any laws or regulations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements. We may retain information longer for our legitimate business interest if retention is not outweighed by your personal rights and freedoms. However, when we process information as a data processor on behalf of our customers, our customer determines the retention period.

Any disputes arising out of or related to this Privacy Policy will be handled in accordance with the dispute resolution process indicated in your contract with us that refers to this Privacy Policy, if applicable. 

Additionally, residents of the EEA and Switzerland may file a complaint with a data protection authority.

Please contact us (using the Contact Information above) if you have any questions about exercising any of the above rights.
