GDPR and Privacy Policy

What is GDPR?

GDPR is a European law that gives people within the EU a significantly greater level of control over their data and how it is processed. For more information, refer to this useful guide.

Although our small business is based in New Zealand and not all of our customers are within the EU, compliance with GDPR is an international standard and is generally good practice. As such, we've taken steps to ensure our own compliance with this law. Our legal status according to GDPR is that of a Data Controller.

Why do we collect data?

We collect and store data for the following purposes:

  • To enable communication between ourselves and our customers
  • To allow our customers to post support requests in our product support forum, and to post comments on our blog
  • To allow us to sell NCrunch licenses to our customers
  • To allow our customers to safely store their NCrunch licenses on our system for future retrieval
  • To allow our customers to upgrade their licenses when they want to use newer versions of our software
  • To allow us to maintain the secure and safe operation of our systems
We do not:
  • Sell your data
  • Send marketing email of any kind
  • Share your data with any other party without your informed consent

What data do we collect?

We collect and store the following:

  • Basic data that you submit to us when creating an account on this website. This is limited to: username, password, email address, first name, surname, country. Passwords are hashed and stored according to industry standards.
  • Summary details on orders you have placed with us for NCrunch licenses, limited to: company name, quantities, pricing and license keys.
  • Details for any quotes we have offered you, limited to: contact person name, company name, physical business address, email address, pricing.
  • Publicly visible posts that you place on our support forum, and comments you place on our blog, with your IP address logged when you do so.

How long is this data retained?

As this data is required for us to be able to provide legal sales and support for our product, we retain this data indefinitely unless you ask us to remove it.

What other parties do you engage with when handling data? (Data Processors)

We engage with the following third parties and exchange data with them for the purposes of accepting payment for NCrunch licensing:

Data is not shared or exchanged with either of these providers unless you make purchases through this website.

We also have a contract with Uservoice to accept feature requests from our customers. We don't have any direct integration with Uservoice and we don't directly share data with them. However, they do store data on our behalf in the form of features you request from us. See here for their GDPR compliance statement.

Where do we store data?

All data is stored within a US-based Amazon Web Services data centre. This data centre is under the EU/US privacy shield agreement.

Who is the Data Protection Officer for this site?

As we are a very small business and our core business does not involve large scale handling of data or systematic monitoring of data subjects, appointment of a DPO is not necessary under GDPR. For privacy and data related requests, please contact Remco Mulder via our support contact form or through our blog.

What rights do I have under GDPR?

GDPR gives you the right to request access to your data. You can also request for it to be rectified or erased. You effectively retain control of your data. Please see here for detailed information.
