How we collect personal data
We most usually receive Personal Data when we enter into an agreement; through the users use of the App or use of our Website; when the user contacts us by e-mail; or in connection with registration to any newsletter from us.
What personal data we collect
We try to work primarily through the principle of purpose limitation and data minimization regarding the storage of Personal Data, by only Processing Personal Data that is necessary, adequate and relevant for each individual purpose.
When a user grants the App access to its Slack workspace, the App gets access to the following Personal Data from Slack about the user: name, email, time zone, avatar and the name of the organization that owns the Slack workspace. If a person signs in using Slack on the Website, we will get information about that person (name and e-mail). This is usually done as part of the process to setup payment details with our payment provider Paddle. Name, e-mail and time zone are saved as long as the user keep the App authorized for its Slack account.
We have access to unidentified usage information about how users use the Website and the App. This is done in order to improve our services and the App through analysis of user behaviors. Our Website also uses Fathom Analytics (third party application) which analyzes the activity on the website. All data sent to Fathom Analytics is anonymized.
We don’t perform manual registrations of users. Almost all data shared by users on the Website and in the App are done by self-service, and users are clearly informed about what information they share with us before the data is shared.

We have the right to Process Personal data, based on the legal basis “Legitimate interests”, in order to for example market the App, provide good support, improve our services, the Website or the App etc. However, sensitive Personal Data is never Processed on this legal basis. The Data Subjects always have the right to object in writing if the Data Subject do not want us to use their Personal Data for marketing. We have the right to Process Personal Data on this legal basis in order to comply with applicable law, demand payment for a past due claim, report a debt or protect our rights/property and to prevent crimes.
