Many thanks for your interest in how we handle privacy and protection of your data at Demodesk GmbH (commercial register Local Court Munich number HRB 237421 -“Demodesk”, “we”, “us” or “our”).
DECLARATION OF CONSENT
Thank you for your interest in Demodesk. The protection of your personal data is of utmost importance to us.
Below you'll find details regarding how we record and use the information you provide while browsing and using our website and application.
Products and Services
The SaaS enables you to share an online browsing session (“Session”) of a website or web-application chosen by you (the“Target WebApp”) with third parties chosen by you, e.g. your customers. When using the SaaS you can upload and share your own documents (the “User Generated Content”). Sharing a Session of the Target WebApp as well as sharing User Generated Content immanently requires certain sharing of information that may include Personal Data. We collect the following information about your Session and Target WebApp:
- Session URL
- Target WebApp URL,
- screen resolution,
- names of all session participants,
- IP addresses of all session participants,
- telephone numbers of session participants using the provided dial-in audio conference line; and
- time-stamps of account registration.
Like many companies, we store all Demodesk data on Digital Ocean cloud solution provided
exclusively on servers located in the EU.
Storing User Generated Content on [AWS] may be deemed as contract data processing (the “Contract Data Processing”) depending on the information stored in the User Generated Content. Contract Data Processing will be subject to a separate agreement.
We use these information only to provide you with the best possible Demodesk SaaS. We may do this by sending a "digital fingerprint" of your Session. However, we remove any Personal Data. We store certain information regarding the URLs browsed in a Session [in an anonymized manner] and use it for debugging, statistical purposes and to improve our SaaS.
Your Demodesk Account
In order to activate and/or use some of our SaaS, you will need to create an account (“Account”). During the process of setting up your Account, we will ask you for certain Personal Data such as your
- e-mail address;
- personal name;
- company name;
- company website;
- IP Address; and
- Time-stamp of Account registration.
We need this information to allow you to activate, manage or use your Demodesk products and services. We mayassociate your email address and other Personal Data (such as name, telephone number and address) with your Account and access of our products or services. For further information, please see the User Experience and Statistics section below.
If you do not agree to such a data transfer, please use your Demodesk Account as a login instead of Google Sign-In
Inviting others to use our products or services
You can invite a third party, e.g. your customer, to try our SaaS via email, Google etc. To use the email invite feature, you will have to enter the third party’s email address (which is Personal Data). Demodesk will then send your invitation to the email address you provide. This email invitation will contain your Personal Data (including your name and the email address you entered into your Account). Please do not do this without getting consent from the third party. If you choose to share the invitation via Facebook, Twitter or Google, you will need to log in to each service. We will interface with the respective API in order to share a link inviting the third party to our SaaS.
You can visit most areas of the Demodesk website without disclosing any Personal Data. Demodesk only logs the domain name, IP address and browser type of our website visitors via our web server log files and analytics tools at irregular intervals. We use this information to log global access to our website.
For our SaaS we will ask that you provide sign-up an Account at Demodesk – see above“Account”.
In some cases, you will be unable to complete a particular step in the process if you do not want to provide the information requested. For example, we will ask for Personal Data in the following instances:
- If you use our online technical support or ask questions about our products and services using the contact form or the contact options on our website, we will ask you to give us Personal Data required for processing the support request. This can include your email address, name and address, as well as information about your computer hardware and software and the type of problem you have.
- If you have requested a test license on our website, in order to activate such license, you may have to provide Personal Data, such as an email address.
- If you request a service from us via our website.
- If you participate in a survey on our website.
- If you subscribe to a newsletter. If you signed up for a newsletter and no longer want to receive it, you can unsubscribe at any time by using the unsubscribe option provided in the email or by sending us an email using the contact information provided below.
User Experience and Statistics
We use our own technology (including soft authentication systems, storage and messaging engines, databases and big data repositories) to perform statistical evaluations using pseudonymized user profiles. We do this to optimize your experience with our products and provide relevant content and advertisements. If you utilize multiple email addresses to access your Demodesk Account, we may tie those emails to one profile. We may combine information we gather about your use of one product or service with your use of another product or service.
We also use the information we collect to offer you content, search results and advertisements that will be of most interest to you. We believe more relevant advertising provides a better Internet experience. This is also how we support our business while still providing certain products or services to you free of charge. As part of this process, we may collect information about how you use and interact with the advertisements that we offer. We may also use information about how you use our products and services across various Devices. Based on this Device-specific information (for example, the hardware model, operating system, version, device, mobile network information including your phone number) and the unique application number assigned to some of our products and services, we may be able to compile a personal profile about you.
In addition to our own proprietary technology, we use the following third-party analytics tools to better understand your interaction with our website and use of our products/services. Our ultimate goal is to create a more user-friendly experience for you:
Matomo (PIWIK) Analytics
