How Do We Use Your Personal Information?
We only use your personal information to provide you the Service or to communicate with you about the Service or the Website. We employ industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorised access of data about you that we store, including personal information. We do not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent, unless: doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request; it is legally required; we believe it’s needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues; otherwise protect our property, legal rights, or that of others. Social Proofy is operated from the United Kingdom. If you are visiting the Website from outside the U.K., you agree to any processing of any personal information you provide us according to this policy. Social Proofy may contact you, by email or other means. For example, Social Proofy may send you promotional emails relating to Social Proofy or other third parties Social Proofy feels you would be interested in, or communicate with you about your use of the Social Proofy website. Social Proofy may also use technology to alert us via a confirmation email when you open an email from us. You can modify your email notification preferences by clicking the appropriate link included in the footer of email notifications. If you do not want to receive email from Social Proofy, please opt out of receiving emails at the bottom of any Social Proofy emails.

We currently use Google Analytics (traffic analysis, SEO optimisation) and Jivo Chat (live chat and in-app messaging). See listed below what data these third parties extract. Please refer to their own Privacy Policies to find out more.

Your use of these third party services is entirely optional. We are not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of these third party services, and you are responsible for reading and understanding those third party services™ privacy policies. We employ and contract with people and other entities that perform certain tasks on our behalf and who are under our control (our “Agents”). We may need to share personal information with our Agents in order to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, our Agents do not have any right to use Personal Information or other information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us. You hereby consent to our sharing of Personal Information with our Agents. We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy. Finally, we may also share your Personal Information to comply with applicable laws and regulations, to respond to a subpoena, search warrant or other lawful request for information we receive, or to otherwise protect our rights. Additionally, you can opt out of some of these services by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out portal at: http://optout.aboutads.info/. Your personal data is stored safely in our database. The databases and servers are held by us or by equivalent third-party providers within the European Union.
If you are a European resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below. Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you (for example if you make an order through the Site), or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above. Additionally, please note that your information will be transferred outside of Europe, including to Canada and the United States.
When you place an order through the Site, we will maintain your Order Information for our records for at least 25 months unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
Data Processing Agreements
Social Proofy does not provide Data Processing Agreements (DPA) at present. This is because of the way in which we process data. How Personal Data is Processed:
— Data Storage: Data collected during the use of the app is held by clients locally, and not retained on our servers.
— Data Anonymization: Personal data collected during the use of the app is anonymised before aggregation.
— Data Aggregation: Data collected during the use of the app is only used on an aggregate level.
For these reasons, a DPA is not needed.
