Privacy Policy: General notes

Monday March 11th, 2019

Keynote: We do not share or sell any of your personal data. We are proud to say that we are one of the fighters for users privacy and we are strongly committed to this principle and to being as transparent as possible.

Who We Are

Qikfox Cyber-Security Systems (“We”, “Our” or “Us”) collects and processes your phone number and Analytics Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and in compliance with the applicable data protection laws. This Policy provides you with the necessary information regarding your rights and our obligations, and explains how, why and when we process generic data collected from your browser. Our general principle is to collect only the information that is necessary to provide you with full functionality of our products and services. We avoid collection of any personal data other than your phone number (which is used as your login Id) and to send alerts and messages from qikfox team.

What We Consider “Personal Information”

We follow EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) which defines personal data as: “…any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”. When we use terms “personal data" or “personal information”, we mean exactly that.

How We Collect Personal Data

Other than your phone number, we do not collect any other personal data from the browser that can identify you as the user. At the time of registration, the user is requested to use their phone number as his/her login ID. A 6-digit two factor authentication code is sent to customer’s phone via SMS and the user is successfully registered. The phone number is also used to track user’s subscription and to send them alerts. Further, qikfox team reserves the right to use the phone number or the email id (if shared by consumer) to send alerts, product updates and promotions. We do not share any customer information with third parties.

What Personal Data We Collect

We collect the following user information:

1. User’s Phone Number

2. User’s Email ID

Note: Unlike most web extensions we do not send browsing history of the user to our servers. We respect user’s privacy and restrict all customer information on a need to know basis to ensure smooth functioning of the qikfox extension.

How We Use Your Personal Data

Your privacy is the highest concern for us. We take it very seriously and we never disclose, share or sell your data, unless required to do so by law. The only purpose of collecting and storing your limited Personal Data is to provide you with our products and services at their full potential.

We retain Personal Data for as long as necessary to continue providing you with these products and services, or until you revoke your consent to share this information.

Your Rights

You have the following rights when it comes to Personal Data:

Request information about what data about you we store and for how long, and if we didn’t collect it directly from you, information about the source;

Request to correct any incomplete or inaccurate data about you. We will do so as quickly as possible, unless there is a valid reason not to, in which case you will be notified;

Delete all your Personal Data. You can do this by sending a request to privacy@qikfox.com. We may ask you to verify your identity before fulfilling the request.

If you disagree with our Policy or any of its parts, you can bring it to our notice by sending a request to privacy@qikfox.com with reasonable questions and we will respond in kind. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority.

Safeguarding Measures

As stated in our keynote, your privacy is the highest concern for us. We make every possible effort to protect you and your Personal Data from unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. We implement and maintain the following technical and security measures:

System Access Controls: We take reasonable measures to prevent Personal Data from being used without authorization. These controls shall vary based on the nature of the processing undertaken and may include, among other controls, authentication via passwords and/or two-factor authentication, documented authorization processes, documented change management processes and/or logging of access on several levels.

Data Access Controls: We take reasonable measures to ensure that Personal Data is accessible and manageable only by properly authorized staff. Direct database query access is restricted and application access rights are established and enforced to ensure that persons entitled to use a data processing system only have access to the Personal Data to which they have privilege of access; and that personal data cannot be read, copied, modified or removed without authorization in the course of processing.

Transmission Controls: We take reasonable measures to ensure that it is possible to check and establish to which entities the transfer of personal data by means of data transmission facilities is envisaged so personal data cannot be read, copied, modified or removed without authorization during electronic transmission or transport.

Input Controls: We take reasonable measures to make it possible to check and establish whether and by whom personal data has been entered into data processing systems, modified or removed.

Data Backup: Back-ups of the databases are made on a regular basis, are secured, and encrypted to ensure that personal data is protected against accidental destruction or loss when hosted by us.

Logical Separation: Personal Data is logically segregated on our systems to ensure that Personal Data that is collected for different purposes can be processed separately.

Consequences of Not Providing Your Personal Data

You are not obligated to provide your Personal Data to us. However, as this information is required for us to provide you with our services or respond to your enquiries, we will not be able to offer some or all our services without it.

Age Limitations

To the extent not prohibited by applicable law, we do not allow use of our Services, Products and Website by anyone younger than 16 years old. If you learn that anyone younger than 16 has unlawfully provided us with Personal Data, please contact us and we will take steps to delete such information.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Laws, regulations and industry standards evolve, which may make those changes necessary, or we may make changes to our business. We will post the changes to this page and encourage you to review our Privacy Policy to stay informed. If we make changes that materially alter your privacy rights, we will provide additional notice via email.
