Last Updated on December 23, 2019

Introduction

This Privacy Policy is designed to help you understand (i) what information we collect from visitors to our websites or through our marketing channels; (ii) how we use such information at Ginko Solutions, and (iii) the choices you have associated with that information.

When we refer to "Ginko Solutions," "we," "our," or "us" in this policy, we are referring to Ginko Solutions, Inc., and its subsidiaries and affiliates, as the "controller" (and/or a "business" under the CCPA) or the equivalent legal construct under applicable law of the information we process when you visit our websites and/or we interact with you through our marketing channels for business purposes. This Privacy Policy covers the digital properties listed here. When we refer to "personal information" in this policy, we are referring to personal data, personally identifiable information, or the equivalent of each under applicable law.

It is important to note that where Ginko Solutions handles personal information on behalf of or at the direction of its customers through their use of our Services, Ginko Solutions is the "processor" (and/or "service provider" under the CCPA) or the equivalent legal construct under applicable law of that data and Ginko Solutions’s use, processing, and handling of such data is done pursuant to the written instructions of its customers in the form of the Terms of Service, Data Processing Addendum, and/or any similar written agreement between the parties. In these cases, our use of information collected through our Service shall be limited to the purpose of providing and operating the Services for our customers. As used herein, the "Service(s)" refers to the applications, services, and websites (marketing and product) provided by Ginko Solutions. Ginko Solutions may, from time-to-time, introduce new products and services. To the extent that any new products and/or services affect this Privacy Policy, we will notify you as further described in Section 8 below.

Personal Information
You provide personally identifiable information when you sign up for our service. When you sign up via a third-party authentication provider (like Google or Dropbox), our service retrieves and saves some information about you from the provider. The specific information is controlled by the authentication provider and by the permissions you approve when you sign up. In particular, our service retrieves your email address.

In addition to the information we collect when you sign up, you may voluntarily provide us with additional personal information. For example: Your place of employment, when you complete a sales form on our website.

Addresses, telephone numbers, additional email addresses, and other personally identifiable information you provide to us through any sales and marketing forms available on our website. This type of information helps us improve our business relationship with you.

Your personally identifiable information will not be sold or rented to third parties in a way that identifies you as an individual. In the event that we are acquired by another company, your personally identifiable information may be part of the assets transferred to the acquiring party.


Application Data
The data that your applications collect and use reside in a third-party storage provider (e.g., Google Accounts, YouTube Accounts, Dropbox, etc.). Our service does not persist this data. However, in order to improve performance, we may temporarily cache data, images, and other files.

In order to interact with your data, our service maintains authentication (OAuth) tokens that allow our software to act "on your behalf" to read and write data to Google/YouTube. These tokens are securely stored along with your personal information.


Usage Data
Our service uses browser session cookies and browser local storage to maintain user session state. This helps to speed up user login. You can set your browser to disable cookies and local storage, but this will significantly compromise or disable product usability.

Our service logs usage information in encrypted log files, including the features you accessed on our site and standard browser-provided information. We use this information not only to debug issues and problems, but also to learn aggregated patterns across all our users and thereby improve our service.

Our service may send notifications via email and other notification mechanisms. We may employ clear images to track the effectiveness of our emails.



1. Information We Collect and Receive

what we have done with your personal information;
to whom we have communicated your personal information;
where your personal information has been stored, processed or transferred;

Depending on which laws apply to your personal information, we may only be able to fulfill some of the above requests for you.

EU-U.S. and Swiss Privacy Shield

TRUSTe
Ginko Solutions has self-certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss Privacy Shield with respect to Customer Data. For more information, see our Privacy Shield Notice.

8. Security

Ginko Solutions follows generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. However, no security measure is perfect. We recommend safeguarding your password, as it is one of the easiest ways you can manage the security of your own account – remember that if you lose control over your password, you may lose control over your personal information.

9. International Data Transfers

Ginko Solutions is headquartered in the United States of America and maintains a global infrastructure. Information that we collect and maintain may be transferred to, or controlled and processed in, the United States and/or other countries around the world. Although these countries may have different data protection laws to the laws of your country, we will protect the privacy and security of personal information we collect in accordance with this Privacy Policy, regardless of where it is processed or stored. Where Ginko Solutions processes European Union personal information outside of the European Union in countries not declared to have adequate protections, it does so in compliance with Chapter 5 of the GDPR (e.g., under the E.U.-US and Swiss Privacy Shield Framework(s) and/or Standard Contractual Clauses) and applicable law.

To learn more about the locations where Ginko Solutions may process your personal information through its affiliated companies or third-party Sub-processors (when Ginko Solutions acts as a data processor, service provider, and/or the applicable legal equivalent), please visit the Product Resources section of the Ginko Solutions Trust & Privacy Center.

10. California Privacy Rights

California Consumer Privacy Act

Additionally, the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA, which takes effect on January 1, 2020, is intended to provide California residents with expanded rights to access, delete and control their personal information. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this Privacy Policy.

For personal information collected by us during the preceding twelve (12) months that is not otherwise subject to an exception, California residents have the right to access and delete their personal information. We will not discriminate against those who exercise their rights. Specifically, if you exercise your rights, we will not deny you access to our Services, charge you different prices for Services or provide you a different level or quality of Services.

The CCPA additionally requires businesses to provide or make available certain disclosures in the event a party sells your personal information to third parties, however because Ginko Solutions does not receive any personal information as consideration for any Services or other items provided or performed by Ginko Solutions, these disclosures do not apply. Ginko Solutions does not collect, retain, share or use any personal information except as necessary for a business purpose pursuant to a written contract (i.e., to provide and operate the Services) and subject to the restrictions specified in Section 1798.140 (v) of the CCPA. Additionally, Ginko Solutions refrains from taking any action that would cause any transfers of personal information that qualify as "selling personal information" under the CCPA or other similar applicable privacy laws.

California residents may exercise the rights specified in this Privacy Policy or request information from us regarding whether we share certain categories of your personal information with third parties by contacting privacy@Ginko Solutions.com.

California Shine the Light

Residents of the State of California, under California Civil Code § 1798.83, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed personal information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that if the company has a privacy policy that gives either an opt-out or opt-in choice for use of your personal information by third parties (such as advertisers) for marketing purposes, the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

Ginko Solutions qualifies for the alternative option. We have a comprehensive privacy statement and provide you with details on how you may either opt-out or opt-in to the use of your personal information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your personal information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.
