We do not sell or trade your personal information to third parties.

We share your personal information with our website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and therefore adhere to this Privacy Policy, in the following limited circumstances:

  • The information strictly related to the execution of your service request is shared with our interpreter appointed to the task, such as your name, your telephone number, the telephone numbers of your counterparts in the call. Our interpreters may be independent contractors of our companies, therefore for the purpose of this Privacy Policy they may be considered as “third parties”. The protections of this privacy policy apply to the information we share in these circumstances: all our interpreters are bound to maintain strict confidentiality about your information and any information discussed during their interpreting sessions. For more information, please see our Standard di comportamento.
  • We may share your personal information with third-party service providers (“processors”) to permit such parties to provide services that help us with our business activities, which may include assisting us with the marketing, advertising our product/service offerings, or providing, maintaining and improving the features and functions of the offerings, among other things. For example, we may provide personal information to our service providers for direct emailing of our newsletters or notifications of our product/service offerings (such as MailChimp), for handling several customer relationship functions like instant chatting (such as Intercom), for handling our cloud telecommunications (such as Twilio). These third-party service providers are just data or meta-data processors of the information and the protections of this Privacy Policy apply to the information we share in these circumstances, as also described in such providers own Privacy Policies (for MailChimp: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy. For Intercom: www.intercom.com/terms-and-policies#privacy; for Twilio: www.twilio.com/legal/privacy/developer).
  • We may share your personal information when we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, enforce a Customer Agreement, including investigation of potential violations thereof, or protect against imminent harm to our rights, property or safety, or that of our users or the public as required or permitted by law.

6. How we store and secure information we collect

We use data hosting service providers in the United States and Germany to host the information we collect, and we use technical measures to secure your data.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain a variety of appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to protect your personal information. We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. Further, we have implemented reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to protect personal information about you. When you enter sensitive information (such as your password), we encrypt that information in transit using industry-standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption technology. No method of transmission over the Internet, method of electronic storage or other security methods are one hundred percent secure. Therefore, while we strive to use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. For more information, please see our Security Policy

You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion or restriction of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format.

Below, we describe the tools and processes for making these requests. You can exercise some of the choices by logging into the Services and using settings available within the Services or your account. Where the Services are administered for you by an administrator (see “Notice to End Users” below), you may need to contact your administrator to assist with your requests first. For all other requests, you may contact us as provided in the Contact Us section below to request assistance.

Your request and choices may be limited in certain cases: for example, your billings and invoices related to the purchases you did so far cannot be deleted since we need to keep records of transactions for administration and tax compliant purposes for a certain number of years.

  • Access and update your information. Our Offerings give you the ability to access and update certain information about you from within the Service. For example, you can access your profile information from your account and search for content containing information about you.
  • Deactivate your account. If you no longer wish to use our Services, you or your administrator may be able to deactivate your Services account by sending a request by email at support@ablio.com.

  • Communication Preferences. If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included on such communications. Please note, however, that you may be unable to opt-out of certain service-related communications.
  • Blocking Cookies. You can remove or block certain cookies using the settings in your browser but the Offerings may cease to function properly if you do so. For more information, please see our Cookie Policy.
  • Data portability. Data portability is the ability to obtain some of your information in a format you can move from one service provider to another (for instance, when you transfer your mobile phone number to another carrier). Should you request it by sending a request by email at support@ablio.com, we will provide you with an electronic file of your information.

If you have unresolved concerns, you may have the right to complain to a data protection authority in the country where you live, where you work or where you feel your rights were infringed.
