Last Updated: January 2024.
Preql Inc. and its affiliates (“Preql”, “we” or “us”) respect the privacy of the visitors of our website at www.preql.com (the “Site“) and Users of our Platform, and are committed to protecting the personal information that is shared with, or made available to us. We believe that you have a right to know our practices regarding the information we may collect and use when you visit and/or use our Site or Platform.

    If we process any Customer Data, we will do so solely on behalf of, and under the instruction of, the Customer and in accordance with the commercial agreement and Data Processing Addendum. Accordingly, this Privacy Policy (which describes Preql’s privacy and data protection practices as a data controller) does not apply to such processing done on our Customers’ behalf.

Our Services are designated for businesses and are not intended for personal or household use. Accordingly, we treat all personal data covered by this Privacy Policy, including information about any visitors to our Sites, as pertaining to individuals acting as business representatives, rather than in their personal capacity.

      We collect this information directly from you, or from other sources and third parties such as our Customers (your employer) as a part of our commercial engagement.

  6. Cookies and Data Collection Technologies
    We and our Service Providers use cookies and other technologies for performance, tracking, analytics and personalization purposes. We may disclose non-identifiable / aggregated extracts of such information with our partners for our legitimate business purposes.
    Cookies are packets of information sent to your web browser and then sent back by the browser each time it accesses the server that sent the cookie. Some cookies are removed when you close your browser session. These are the “Session Cookies”. Some last for longer periods and are called “Persistent Cookies”. We use both types.
    Some cookies are necessary for the Services to function properly, and cannot be declined or disabled unless you delete and block them through your web browser settings. Other cookies, which are used for functional, performance, analytics and marketing purposes, are optional. These include web and app analytics tools and tools that provide us with insights on the performance of our ads and campaigns.
    While we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from a browser or mobile application, you can manage your cookies preferences, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them, through your browser settings. Please bear in mind that disabling cookies may complicate or even prevent you from using the Services. You may also use the “cookie settings” feature available at the bottom of our website at www.preql.com.
    We also use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool which helps us understand Users’ behavior on our Sites, including by tracking page content, and click/touch, movements, scrolls and keystroke activities. Further information about the privacy practices of Google Analytics is available at: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. Further information about your option to opt out of Google Analytics is available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
    Please note that if you get a new computer, install a new browser, erase or otherwise alter your browser’s cookie file (including upgrading certain browsers), you may also clear the opt-out cookies installed once you opt out, so an additional opt out will be necessary to prevent additional tracking.
  7. Communications
    We engage in Services and promotional communications, through email, phone, SMS and notifications.
    Service Communications: We may contact you with important information regarding our Services. For example, we may notify you (through any of the means available to us) of changes or updates to our Services, billing issues, service maintenance or changes, password retrieval notices, etc. You will not be able to opt out of receiving such service communications while using our Services, as they are integral to such use (for example, password resets or billing notices).
    Notifications and Promotional Communications: We may notify you about new features, offerings, events, and special opportunities or any other information we think you will find valuable, as our Customer, User or Prospect. We may provide such notices through any of the contacts means available to us (e.g., phone, mobile or email), through the Services, or through our marketing campaigns on any other websites or platforms.
    If you do not wish to receive such promotional communications, you may notify us at any time by sending an email to privacy@preql.com or by following the "unsubscribe", "stop" or "change email preferences" instructions contained in the promotional communications you receive.
  8. Data Security
    To protect your personal data held with us, Preql and our Service Providers implement systems, applications, and procedures to secure your personal data, to minimize the risks of theft, damage, loss of information, or unauthorized access or use of information. These measures provide industry-standard security. However, please be aware that regardless of any security measures used or implemented, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of any personal data stored with us or with any third parties.
  9. Data Subject Rights
    Individuals have rights concerning their personal data. Please contact us by e-mail at: privacy@preql.com if you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, including the EU or UK General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection, (“FADP”), the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) and other similar US State Laws. Such rights may include, each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you: the right to know/request access to (specific pieces of personal data collected, categories of personal data collected, categories of sources from whom the personal data was collected, purpose of collecting personal data, categories of third parties with whom we have shared personal data); to request rectification or erasure of your personal data held with Preql; or to restrict or object to such personal data’s processing (including the right to direct us not to sell your personal data to third parties now or in the future); or to port such personal data; or the right to equal services and prices (e.g. freedom from discrimination). If you are a GDPR-protected individual, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority in the EU or the UK, as applicable.
    Please note, when you ask us to exercise any of your rights, we may need to ask you to provide us certain credentials (e.g. in order to authenticate and validate your identity so that we know which data in our systems relates to you, and where necessary, to better understand the nature and scope of your request). If your request relates to personal data contained in Customer Data (i.e., personal data we process on our Customers’ behalf as its “data processor” or “service provider”, as further explained in Section 10 below), such Customer exclusively determines how the data may be processed, as well as if and how your request should be handled – so we advise that you submit your request directly to them.
    We may not be able to fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information that enables us to reasonably verify that you are the individual about whom we collected the personal data, and if such data is processed on behalf of any of our Customers, to which Customer it particularly relates, so that we may forward it to them for their further handling. Such additional information may be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g., as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request, or proof of request fulfillment). We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data or confidential information related to others.
  10. Data Controller/Processor
    Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the EU and UK GDPR, the FADP and CCPA, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the “Data Controller” (or under the CCPA, the “Business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor” (or under the CCPA, the “Service Provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
    Preql is the “Data Controller” of Prospect and User Personal Data. With respect to such data, we assume the responsibilities of Data Controller (solely to the extent applicable under law), as set forth in this Privacy Policy. In such instances, our Service Providers processing such data will assume the role of “data processor”.
    Preql is the “Data Processor” of Customer Data. Such data is processed by Preql on behalf of the Customer (who is the “Data Controller” of such data; and our Service Providers who process such Customer Data on our behalf are the “sub-processors” of such data). Accordingly, Preql processes Customer Data strictly in accordance with our Customers’ reasonable instructions and as further stipulated in our Data Processing Addendum and other commercial agreements with such Customer.
    Our Customers are solely responsible for determining whether and how they wish to use our Services, and for ensuring that all individuals using the Services on the Customer’s behalf or at their request, as well as all individuals whose personal data may be included in Customer Data processed through the Services, have been provided with adequate notice and given informed consent to the processing of their personal data, where such consent is necessary or advised, and that all legal requirements applicable to the collection, recording, use or other processing of data through our Services are fully met by the Customer, including specifically in the context of an employment relationship. Our Customers are also responsible for handling data subject rights requests under applicable law, by their users and other individuals whose data they process through the Services.
  11. Additional Notices and Contact Details
    Updates and Amendments: We may update and amend this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting an amended version on our Services. The amended version will be effective as of the published date. We will provide prior notice if we believe any substantial changes are involved via any of the communication means available to us or via the Services. After such notice period, all amendments to this Privacy Policy shall be deemed accepted by you.
    Requirements under US State Privacy Laws: This policy describes the categories of personal information we may collect and the sources of such information (in Section 1 above), and our retention and deletion practices (Section 4). We have also included information about how we may process your information (in Sections 2 through 7), which includes for “business purposes” under the CCPA and similar US state laws, as applicable. We do not sell or “share” your personal information for the intents and purposes of the CCPA. We do disclose personal data to third parties or allow them to collect personal data from our Services as described in Section ‎5 above, if those third parties are our Customers (with respect to Customer Data processed on their behalf), or our authorized Service Providers or business partners who have agreed to our contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of such personal data, or if you integrate the services of third parties with our Services, or direct us to disclose your personal data to third parties, or as otherwise described in Section 5 above. Please note, you may designate, in writing or through a power of attorney, am authorized representative to request to exercise your privacy rights on your behalf. The authorized agent may submit a request to exercise these rights be emailing us. Note that we will not discriminate against you by withholding our Services from you or providing a lower quality of service to you for requesting to exercise your rights under the law. If you have any questions or would like to exercise your rights under US state laws, please contact privacy@preql.com.
    External Links: While our Services may contain links to other websites or services, we are not responsible for their privacy practices, and encourage you to pay attention when you leave our Services for the website or services of such third parties and to read the privacy policies of each website and service you visit. This Privacy Policy only applies to our Services.
    Children’s Privacy: Our Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal data from minors under the age of 18 and do not wish to do so. In the event that it comes to our knowledge that a minor is using the Services, we will prohibit and block such user from accessing the Services (to the extent reasonably possible) and will make all efforts to promptly delete any personal data stored with us with regard to such user.
