This Policy explains our practices regarding the collection, protection, use, sharing, and disclosure of information we collect when you visit our websites or use our applications.
For Google user data collected through Google Drive API, see specific restrictions on our use of that data are set forth in the section  titled Google User Data.
Services. Our Services include the Sites and the following:
DOC is a SaaS platform based on a suite of solutions to facilitate the management and exchange of digital documents while improving the processes security.
|Personal Data Subjects. We collect information from visitors to our Platform, our potential and our existing customers, usually companies (the “Customers”) represented by the authorized individuals who are registered or permitted by a Customer to access a Workspace and/or use the Services (the “Authorized Users”). For example, administrator, manager and team member, or external guest signing a document.
|Types of Information. Information about you can be divided in two groups:
|Information you provide to us: “personally identifiable information” or personal data that we can use to identify or contact you (the “Personal Data” or “PII”). See Subsection C below.
|Information that is automatically collected: “Aggregated Information” - information or data we collect where individual user identities have been removed. See Subsection D below.
|Generally, no one is under a statutory or contractual obligation to provide any Personal Data or Aggregated Information. Certain Customer Data about you has been collected automatically and, if some Customer Data such as the names and emails of the Authorized Users is not provided, we may be unable to provide the Services.
|Personal Data. Personal Data is any piece of information that can potentially be used to identify, contact, or locate a user uniquely. We need this information so we can interact with each other, to provide our Services at the highest standards and to answer to your specific needs. You provide your Personal Data, for example, by signing up on our Platform or paying for the Services. Personal Data collected by us is protected as personal data under applicable data protection laws, for example, under the GDPR.
|You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all Personal Data that you submit to us. Inaccurate Personal Data may affect your experience when using the Services and/or our ability to contact you as described in this Policy.
|Aggregated Information. Aggregated Information is non-personally identifiable/anonymous Information about users of the Platform. Aggregated Information is information that you give to us by using our Platform or the Services. Aggregated Information is used in a collective manner and no single person can be identified by the information compiled.
|For example, when you visit our Website, our systems automatically maintain web logs to record data about all visitors who use our Website and store this information in our database. These weblogs may contain information about you including the following: IP address, type(s) of operating system you use, type of device you use, date and time you visited our Website, your activity and/or referring websites and the pages most frequently accessed.
|We may de-identify or anonymize your Personal Data so that you are not individually identified and provide that information to our partners and/or affiliates. We also may combine your de-identified information with that of other users to create aggregate de-identified data that may be disclosed to third parties who may use such information to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services so that they can provide you with an optimal online experience. For example, we may use the information gathered to create a composite profile of all the users of the Platform to understand users’ needs in order to design appropriate features and tools. However, we never disclose Aggregated Information in a manner that would identify you personally and as an individual.
|Contact Information. We collect information from visitors to our Platform, our potential and our existing customers, usually companies (the “Customers”) represented by the authorized individuals who are registered or permitted by a Customer to access a Workspace and/or use the Services (the “Authorized Users”). For example, administrator, manager and team member, or external guest signing a document.
|Billing Details. When you subscribe to a paid plan version of the Services, our payment processor or bank collects your billing details. Different payment methods may require the collection of different types of information, such as your payment card number, CVC, expiration date and/or bank account number and/or a billing address.
|Please note that payment information submitted by you will be processed by our payment processor or bank. We do not intentionally receive or process your billing information.
|Information we collect automatically. Even if you do not provide information to us, we automatically collect Aggregated Information about your use of and interaction with our Platform and/or Services as described in Section 1 above. We use your Aggregated Information to troubleshoot problems, gather demographic information, customize your experience when accessing our Platform, Services and for other business purposes.
|Data from Third-Party Services. Typically, Third-Party Services refer to software that integrates into our Platform (e.g., ProximaX, AWS). The provider of a Third-Party Service may share certain information with DOC and vice versa. For example, if a storage application is enabled to permit the import of files to your Workspace, we may receive a user's name and email address, along with additional information that the application has elected to make available to DOC to facilitate the integration.
|Authorized Users should check the privacy settings and notices in these Third-Party Services to understand what data may be disclosed to DOC. We do not, however, receive or store passwords for any of these Third-Party Services when connecting them to the Platform.
|Third-Party Data. We may receive Information about you from outside sources, such as commercially available demographic or marketing information, and add or combine it with your information to provide better service to you and inform you of Services or other information that may be of interest to you. This data may be combined with the Customer Data we collect and might include aggregate level data, such as which IP addresses correspond to which zip codes or countries, or it might be more specific: for example, how well an online marketing or email campaign performed.
|The DOC platform, for security reason, is not allowing users to log in with social networks’ credentials and we will not exchange information about you with these social platforms.
|Additional Information. We receive your Personal Data when you submit it to our Platform, if you participate in an offer, program or promotion, focus group, contest, activity or event, apply for a job, request support, interact with our social media accounts, give us your business card or contact details at conferences or other events, provide feedback or otherwise communicate with our team.
Under specific laws (including the GDPR), we are required to notify you about the legal basis on which we process your Personal Data. We will only collect and process personal data about you where we have a lawful basis. Lawful basis includes:
• Consent (where you have given explicit consent);
• Contract (where processing is necessary to take steps to enter into or perform a contract with you);

• Vital or public interest, where processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest of a data subject or another person;
• “Legitimate interests”, except where such interests are overridden by the interests, rights or freedoms of a data subject.
• Where we rely on your consent to process Personal Data, you have the right to withdraw or decline your consent at any time and where we rely on legitimate interests, you have the right to object.
• If you have any questions about the lawful basis upon which we collect and use your personal data, please feel free to contact our Data Protection Officer at: privacy (at) doconchain.io.
How we use your Personal Data will depend on which Services you use, how you use the Platform and the choices you make in your settings. Personal Data will be used and processed by us in compliance with the Customer’s instructions, including any applicable contract terms, and as required by applicable law.
We use the Customer Data in furtherance of our legitimate interests in operating our Platform, delivering Services, and doing business. In determining business purposes that we have identified as legitimate; we balance our interests against the legitimate interests and rights of the individuals whose Personal Data we process.
More specifically, we use Customer Data:
To facilitate contractual and pre-contractual business relationships. We use Personal Data to enter into business relationships with prospective customers and to perform the contractual obligations under the contracts that we have with existing Customers.

To comply with our regulatory and other legal obligations, including Data Processing requirements of the GDPR and U.S.-EU Privacy Shield as well as any “Anti-Money Laundering” (AML) and “Know-Your-Customer” (KYC) obligations,
To personalize the Platform for you by understanding your needs. We use the Customer Data to customize our Services for you, including providing recommendations to integrate your templates and personalized content and the Workspace management.
To create new features, tools and products. For example, we may improve functionality by using the Customer Data to help determine and rank the relevance of content to you and make Services suggestions based on historical use and predictive models. For example, based on your platform usage history, thus we may identify organizational trends and insights based on the usages of the Platform.
For research and analysis. We conduct aggregate analysis, market research and planning, develop business intelligence, generate statistical studies that enable us to operate, protect, make informed decisions and report on the performance of our business;
For customer support. Your emails, calls and other correspondence to and from us may be recorded for various purposes including monitoring customer service quality or compliance, checking the accuracy of the information you provide us or providing training for our personnel or customer service representatives. Any information obtained from you through Customer support will be treated according to the provisions of this Policy.

For marketing and events-related communications. We sometimes send emails about new product features, promotional communications or other news about DOC, our products and services, invite you to participate in our events or surveys, or otherwise communicate with you for marketing purposes, provided that we do so per the applicable consent requirements. These are marketing messages (described in more detail below), so you can control whether you receive them.

We do not intentionally collect, store, process or transmit any other sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information or religious information. If you store any sensitive information on our storage system, you are responsible for complying with any regulatory controls regarding that data. We might erase the sensitive information that is uploaded to the Platform or otherwise provided to us without our request or consent, if such erasure is necessary for the public interest or compliance with our legal obligations.

We do not knowingly direct any of our content specifically to or collect information from children under 18. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 18, we will, unfortunately, have to close your account. Some countries may have different minimum age limits and if you are below the minimum age for providing consent for data collection in your country, you may not use DOC.
No End-User Data. We do not intentionally collect the Personal Data of Customers’ end-users that might be stored in your account. Information and content in a Customer's accounts belong to the Customer, and the Customer is fully responsible for it, as well as for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Any Personal Data within a Workspace is the responsibility of the Customer, namely the account's owner. The Customer shall be considered as the controller for the purposes of the GDPR. Please see Section 12 below for details.
|To Third-Party Services. Our Platform enables integrations with third-party software that our Customers may use. The Customer has sole discretion over whether to use these integrations. Once enabled, DOC may share certain information with a Third-Party Service provider and vice versa.

If you feel that you have not received a satisfactory response from us, you may consult with the data protection authority in your country.

Data Retention Period. We will process and store the Customer Data no longer than necessary. In general, your Personal Data will be stored during the term of our contractual relationships and after that for a maximum of ten (10) years with regard to rules of limitation. In some cases, Personal Data may be saved for longer due to laws applicable to DOC.

We take the security of data very seriously. We work hard to protect Customer Data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access or disclosure but note that no method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and safety. In the event of a data breach that affects your Personal Data, we will act promptly to mitigate the impact of a breach and notify any affected users without undue delay.
Our Platform provides the ability to connect to the websites of other Third-Party Services providers. Please see Section 6 above for details. These Third-Party Services are not owned or controlled by DOC, and third parties that have been granted access to your Personal Data may have their own policies and practices for data collection and use. Please check the privacy settings and notices in these Third-Party Services or contact the relevant provider with any questions you may have.
You may see our ads on other websites or mobile apps because we participate in advertising networks. Ad networks allow us to target our message to users based on a range of factors, including demographic data, users' inferred interests and browsing context (e.g., the time and date of your visit to our Platform, the pages that you viewed and the links that you clicked on). This technology also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts and understand if you have seen one of our advertisements.
Please see Sub-section 7.1. above to learn more about for various un-subscription options from Third-Party Services you have.
Data protection law in certain jurisdictions (e.g., the GDPR) differentiates between the “controller” and “processor” of information. In general, the Customer is the controller of the Personal Data. DOC is the processor of the Personal Data. However, DOC is deemed a controller of the Personal Data that is processed for its legitimate interests as described in Sections 4-6 above.
If you are an Authorized User or a signer for our Customer, you have the right to address your requests on the Personal Data protection directly to the Customer as your data controller.
We are a global business. Personal Data may be stored and processed in a country where we have operations or where we engage service providers. These countries may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country.
We may disclose personally-identifying information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant or similar government order, or when we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.
In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, DOC strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify Customers and Authorized Users of any disclosure of their information, unless we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in rare, exigent circumstances.
