Data storage and transfer
When you use the Products on your computing device, user content you save will be stored locally on that device and synced with our servers. If you post or transfer any information to or through our Site and/or Products, you are agreeing to such information being hosted and accessed on our servers.
The collected personal data may be transferred by FoneDog to recipients which are located outside the European Union and such destinations may not have laws which protect a user's personal data to the same extent as in the European Union.
Data deletion and retention
You can remove your information from FoneDog at any time by emailing us with the respective request: [email protected]. In general, user content stored locally on users' devices will be removed once the Products are uninstalled from the computers. At the same time, our server will stop synchronization and delete all related data. However, we may keep some of your information for as long as reasonably necessary for our legitimate business interests, including fraud detection and prevention, and to comply with our legal obligations including tax, legal reporting, and auditing obligations.
All breaches will be reported to the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours, unless the data was anonymized or encrypted or if it has a particularly high risk. Breaches of this policy by staff, contractors, officers of FoneDog will be dealt with under the company's grievance and disciplinary policy and may lead to a disciplinary sanction.
If FoneDog learns of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you and provide information on protective steps, if available, through the email address that you have provided to us or by posting a notice on the Site. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive such notices in writing.
FoneDog uses, processes, and stores information, as necessary to perform our contract with you, and based on our legitimate interests in order to provide the Products and Services.
