Last modified: 19.05.2020

Here at Newoldstamp, we are committed to being fully transparent with you in regard with our privacy practices. For this reason, we developed this Privacy Policy to inform you about how we may process your personal data. 

We tried to write this Privacy Policy in clear and plain language for your better understanding of the complicated legal stuff. By doing so we hope you will get all needed details to be assured your personal data is safe with us.

In this document, we will explain you the following issues:

  • what data we process, how we process it and for which purposes; 
  • who have access to each type of your data; 
  • for how long we retain your data;
  • what are our protection measures to keep your data secure; 
  • what are your rights in respect of the processing of your data under GDPR and CCPA;
  • what are the last changes to this Privacy Policy (if applicable).

Our contact details are provided at the bottom of this document so you may always contact us and ask for clarifications or request the exercise of your rights. 

What is personal data?

Personal data (or data) is any information relating to you and that alone or in combination with other pieces of information gives an opportunity to a person that collects and processes such information to identify you as an individual. It can be your name, address, your location data, or information related to your physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity. Personal data also includes such technical information as a Media Access Control address (MAC-addresses), International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), Unique Device Identifier (UDID), the Identity for Advertisers (IDFA), Internet Protocol address (IP-address), browser and system information.

Processing of the personal data means any action with it, for example, collection, recording, organizing, structuring, storage, use, disclosure by any means and so on.

Other terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meaning as in our Terms of Use, European General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act. 

What data we collect, how and for what purposes

Data you voluntary provide us 

Account data 

Scope:

When registering an account on our Website, you will need to provide us with your email address, first and last name, and email client. You will also need to create a password. Without these data we will not be able to provide you with our main Services, so we will call it ‘necessary data’. 

When you sign up through a third-party social media account such as Google, Facebook or LinkedIn account, you give us consent to extract from such an account your first and last name, your email address and your profile picture. 

While registering an account or filling your account information afterwards, at your own choice you may submit to your profile data about your industry, company name and your position in company, mobile phone. We will use this data to enhance your experience as it is detailed below, but it is not strictly required for the Services provision. We will call these data  ‘additional account information’.

Lawful basis

Necessary data enable us to provide you with the Services as it is detailed in our Terms of Use. Thus, the basis of contract performance serves as a lawful basis for processing in this case. Sometimes, we may process these necessary data on the basis of our legitimate interest, e.g. for direct marketing purposes.

As regards the additional account information, we may process it only if you voluntarily provide us with it. Where applicable, we will treat this clear and affirmative action as a request to provide you with some additional services (e.g. to customize your account) meaning the contractual basis will apply to such processing. In some cases, we may also process the relevant data on the basis of our legitimate interest will ask you for a consent to process your data for the specified purposes, for instance, for direct marketing purposes or to run analytics so to improve our Services. In other cases, we will process the relevant data on the basis of our legitimate interest.

Processing and purposes: 

We process personal data that is required for the account registration to provide you with our main Services, including creating and maintaining your account, ensuring that everything works smoothly within your preferred email client, communicating with you at your request and identifying you when you want to publish information in our blog or forum. 

At your own discretion you may supplement your account information. We will process such data only to let you customize your account at your own choice. 

Sometimes we may process your email and name on the basis of our legitimate interest to send you newsletters and other communication. We may do so to provide you with some useful information, notify you on any updates regarding our Website or Services and inform us about our or our partners’ offers. In no case we will overwhelm you with hundreds of letters, but, at any time, you can choose to stop receiving our emails. If you want to cease this type of communication, simply use the “Unsubscribe” button. 

Please take into account that the “Unsubscribe” button  which is present in each of our emails, except the transactional emails notifying you of significant changes in your account, reminding you of the upcoming payments and providing you with the required payment details. Those transactional emails are an essential part of the services we provide. They are also necessary to prevent fraud and other illegal acts. The processing of personal data in this case is carried out on the contractual basis. Without the right to such processing, we won’t be able to protect your account and charge you with fees for our Services. 

Company size and industry tell us more about our customers, their needs and interests. With the help of this information, we can improve and customize our Services to enhance your user experience. At your choice, we may use such data to run analytics and/or for marketing purposes. Keep in mind that these data are not necessarily required. Without such information, you will still be able to use our Services, but we will appreciate it if you share it with us as it helps us to grow. 

Retention period: 

We will store all your account data as long as you keep your account active. We will also store your account data within 30 days after the account deletion to be able to reactivate your account if you change your mind, and to be able to reach you in case of any dispute. 

Data from email signatures

Scope:

When creating email signatures, you may share with us your company name, department name, your position as well as your mobile phone, your photos, links to your social media accounts and other data at your own choice. 

Lawful basis:

We will use this data only to provide you with our main Services as it is described in our Terms of Use. Thus, the contract performance serves as a lawful basis for this type of processing. Only in some cases we may process such data on the basis of our legitimate interest for marketing purposes.

Processing and purposes: 

We will process such data only to let you create email signatures and further embed them into your (or your colleagues’) emails. 

In some cases, we may use your email signatures for our marketing purposes as it is detailed in our Terms of Use. For instance, we may post email signatures created by you as examples for other users. In such cases we will blur or otherwise hide your personal data so not to infringe your rights.

Retention period:

We will store these data as long as you keep your account active and 30 days after its deletion unless you erase these data from the account earlier on your own. 

Automatic collection

We may collect some of your personal data automatically with the help of cookies and other similar technologies. We invite you to check our Cookies Policy for further details.

Other processing

Please note that sometimes we may process your data for the period longer than indicated in the sections above. Such processing could be carried only for statistical purposes and subject to the appropriate safeguards in accordance with applicable data protection laws. 

What are statistical purposes? Statistical purposes mean any collection and processing of personal data necessary for statistical surveys or to produce statistical results. The statistical purpose implies that such statistical results do not include personal data, but only aggregate data. The statistical results may further be used for various purposes, for example, to assess our business development, understand the market demands and improve our Services. 

In most cases, we will anonymize your data before starting processing it for the statistical purposes. As a result, such data will no longer be considered personal and its use will be not governed by data protection laws.

Additionally, we may process your data: 

  • for the compliance with our legal obligations;
  • to protect your vital interests or vital interests of another natural person;
  • for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Newoldstamp or by a third party (e.g. to prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Website or to protect ourselves, our subcontractors, partners and affiliates against damages of any king).

If we decide to change the purposes of processing specified above, we will inform you on such changes prior to the use of your personal data within the newly set purposes. Where applicable, you will have to provide your consent for the amended purposes (unless additional purpose of processing is compatible with those listed above).

Please note that we do not sell your data or make any decision based solely on automated processing that may produce legal effects or similar significant effects. 

Access to personal data

You probably understand that our Website doesn’t work autonomously. In order to provide high-quality Services, we hire people, enter into agreements with independent contractors as well as cooperate with other service providers, companies and organizations. For those reasons, some of your personal data can be shared with the mentioned persons.

In all cases, we adhere to all the requirements of applicable data protection laws and do our best to ensure the security of data processing at all stages.

Our employees and contractors

Among our employees, there are only Customer Support, Sales and Marketing departments, as well as Development team who can access your data from our databases. They are exactly those persons who are responsible for achieving the declared purposes of data processing and that is why they need to have access to your data. 

When we lack the internal capacity to deal with some tasks, we may engage both companies and individual entrepreneurs to help us to provide you with the Services. When we transfer data to the country not recognized by the European Commission as ensuring an adequate level of data protection, we will secure such transmission by including standard contractual clauses compliant with the EU data protection laws into our data processing agreements or by implementing other safeguards. 

Third party services

Apart from our employees and sub-contractors, we engage the following third-party service providers:

If you are interested in more details about how these third-party services process personal data, please refer to their privacy policies available on their websites. However, we want to reassure you that due to their residency of headquarters or affiliates companies (USA and European Union) they all are subject to the best worldwide standards of data protection. We care about your data security and choose only reliable partners.

How we protect your data

We use Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) for keeping your data secured and your communication with the Website encrypted. 

We store your data with DigitalOcean LLC and process it with the help of MySQL and +PostgreSQL  relational database management systems which are widely known for their reliability.

For emergency cases we also regularly backup data to be able to restore it when it is needed. 

We require all our employees and subcontractors to enter into non-disclosure agreements and data processing agreements (if applicable). 

We also will inform users and the respective agencies of personal data breaches should there be high risks of violation of your rights as data subjects. We would also do our best to minimize any such risks.

Your rights under GDPR

If you are an EU resident, you have the following rights regarding your personal data Newoldstamp collects and processes:

Right to access to your personal and right to data portability

This means that you can ask Newoldstamp what personal data of yours is processed. You may ask us if we process your personal data or not. You may also ask for the clarifications on the information described in this Privacy Policy, i.e. purpose of collecting and processing, categories of data processed, period of processing, the list of third parties which have access to information, and information on protection measures we implemented. We may also provide you with your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format to enable you to transmit that data to another party or service provider. 

Right to rectify your personal data

You can request all the inaccurate personal data concerning you being corrected. You may also request to complete your personal data if you consider that something is missed. 

Right to be forgotten

You can request us to erase personal data from our records and records of our third-party services if its processing is no longer necessary to achieve purposes for which it was collected. You may also request so if there are no legal grounds for the processing. In most cases, we will erase it unless otherwise required by legislation.

Right to restrict the processing of your personal data 

In some cases, prescribed by law you will also be able to restrict the processing of your data. For example, if you contest the accuracy of your personal data being processed or if we are not interested in our processing of your personal data any longer, but you want us to do this for other reasons, for example, to bring some claim against somebody – then, instead of the erasure of information, its processing will be just restricted.

Right to withdraw your consent

You can withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data at any time by simply contacting us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on the consent before its withdrawal. After receiving such a withdrawal request from you, we will process it in a timely manner and will no longer process your personal data unless otherwise set by law.

Right to object to the processing

In some cases, prescribed by the applicable laws you can object to processing of your personal data.

You can object to the processing of your personal data when the processing is related to the performance of our task carried in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us; or if we process your data to pursue our or third party’s legitimate interests, and you believe that such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

If you make a request objecting to processing, we will no longer process the personal data unless we are able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing.

Right to complain

If you have doubts as to our reply or reaction, or absence of such, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, empowered to resolve such complaints in your country.
