Data privacy and protection policy

We are committed to respecting your privacy. We recognize that when you choose to provide us with information about yourself, you trust us to act in a responsible manner. That's why we have put a policy in place to protect your personal information. Please read on for more details about our privacy practices.

What information does CKSource collect? How do we use it?

We may also store information about you in cookies (files which are sent by us to your computer or another access device) which we can access when you visit our site in the future. We may use third-party software solutions to enhance our websites, which use cookies in a similar fashion.

If you want to delete any cookie that is already on your computer, please refer to the instructions of your file management software to locate the file or directory that stores cookies. If you want to stop cookies from being stored on your computer in the future, please refer to your browser manufacturer's instructions by clicking "Help" in your browser menu. Further information on deleting or controlling cookies is available at www.AboutCookies.org. Please note that by deleting our cookies or disabling future cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of our site.

Unless specified in this document, we may never share your information with others for any purposes, except when required by law. By providing us with your fax number, telephone numbers or email address you consent to being contacted by us with information related to the specific task associated with actions you make in the website, like answering questions sent via the contact form, for example.

User content

We define user content as data, text, audio, video, or images that a user transfers to us for processing, storage or hosting by our services and any computational results that a user derives from the foregoing through their use of our services. For example, user content includes images that a user uploaded to our services. The terms of any agreement with us governing the use of our services apply to your user content.

User content ownership

Users maintain ownership of their user content. We do not access or use user content for any purpose other than as legally required and for maintaining our services and providing them to our users. We never use user content or derive information from it for marketing or advertising.

Third-party cloud services provider

Our services are structured on top of the secure and well-established Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud solutions. We do not run a custom data center, avoiding hundreds of performance, availability and security threads which have been settled down by AWS with their years of presence in the market.

Compliance with EU law

We base our services on AWS solutions, which has already obtained approval from EU data protection authorities, known as the Article 29 Working Party, of the AWS Data Processing Addendum and Model Clauses to enable transfer of data outside Europe, including to the U.S. With their EU-approved Data Processing Addendum and Model Clauses, CKSource customers can run their global operations using CKSource services in full compliance with EU law. The AWS Data Processing Addendum is available to all CKSource customers that are processing personal data whether they are established in Europe or a global company operating in the European Economic Area. For additional information, please visit the AWS EU Data Protection FAQ.

EU-US Privacy Shield

Recently, the European Commission and the US Government agreed on a new framework called the EU-US Privacy Shield, and on July 12, 2016, the European Commission formally adopted it. The EU-US Privacy Shield replaces Safe Harbor. AWS as well welcomes this new framework for transatlantic data flow.

This Privacy policy may change and therefore you should review it regularly.
