Website visitors and Cookies
When you visit our website, we’ll place tracking cookies on your device for a number of reasons.
Sapper Platform users
If you have expressed an interest in our products or platform, or you have signed up for an account, we may use the contact information you provided to better understand how we can tailor the service to you and better inform our sales team.
- Your contact information may be shared with 3rd party services for the purpose finding additional public data about you to aid our sales team or to provide a more tailored service. These 3rd parties act as data processors and will only be allowed to process this data based on our instructions for the purposes stated above.
- If you create an account with us, we may need extra personal data to ensure the security of your account. You may be asked to create a password which will not be viewable by us or provide an access token which won’t be usable by us.
- We may use your phone number or your email address to send direct or marketing emails in order to contact you about the use of the service or to promote services that we feel you will be interested in.
- Phone calls may be recorded for staff training or sales quality purposes.
The lawful basis for processing the personal data of Sapper Platform users is for the legitimate interest of our business. We will only process personal data in ways that our customers would expect of us in order to provide the service they’ve expressed interest in.
If you do not continue to become a customer of ours, then we will delete your data 1 year after signing up or expressing interest with us.
Sapper Platform customers
If you’re a customer and have a contract with us or are potentially going to become one, in addition to using your data in the ways mentioned above as a Sapper Platform user, we’ll need to collect data to process payments, provide support and monitor your usage of our services.
- This is to ensure you’re receiving the level of service you expect, to help us develop our platform even further or to do what’s necessary for you to become a customer of ours.
- 3rd party services may be used to aid this, such as customer support services like Intercom, payment services like Stripe, or Mixpanel to learn how you use our services.
- Whilst using our services, you may transfer personal data into our platform so that you can take advantage of our API automation. In order to do this, we’re likely to require authentication data like usernames, passwords, tokens. Authorised support staff are only able to view and use this data, with your permission, to provide support to your service.
The lawful basis for processing the personal data of Sapper Platform customers is for the performance of the contract we have in place, or in order to enter into a contract.
Most personal data will be deleted 1 month after you end your contract with us. However other non-sensitive personal data may be stored for up to 1 year after you end your contract with us. Data required for legal purposes, such as accounting data, will be stored for as long as legally required.
Sharing of data with 3rd parties
Like many companies, we use a number of 3rd party services to help us provide the service you expect. Whilst these services may require your personal data, we only allow these services to use it under strict conditions and we perform adequate due diligence on these companies and the countries they operate in.
