Privacy Policy

Hey there! We are Figureight, the team behind Propsy, and this is our Privacy Policy, effective as of August 30, 2021. It applies to information that we collect about you when you:

  • Use our Website.
  • Communicate with us directly via email or other (public or private) channels.
  • Use Propsy in your Slack workspace.

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Information We Collect

We collect information in two ways:

  1. Automatically through operating our Website.
  2. If and when you provide information to us directly.
  3. When you use Propsy.

Information We Collect Automatically

When you interact with us through the Website, we may automatically collect Personal Information, Potentially Identifying Information and other Non-Personal Data, as further described below:

We do not collect and do not require you to provide Personal Information when you simply view our Website. If you choose to interact with the Website or our team, we collect Personal Information when you:

  • subscribe or sign up to receive a newsletter or similar communication; and
  • comment on the Website.

Like most online service providers, we collect Non-Personal Data and Potentially Identifying Information that web browsers, mobile devices, and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, IP address, unique device identifiers, language preference, referring site, the date and time of access, operating system, and mobile network information.

Additionally, we collect Potentially Identifying Information using cookies and other technologies like pixel tags. This information allows us to identify and track visitors, usage, and access Website preferences.

In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Information except with your permission.

Information You Provide to Us

It should come as no surprise that we collect and store information that you provide to us, for example when you:

  • send a question directly to our team;
  • respond to a survey hosted on our Website or a social media account controlled by us.

This information may include Personal Information and Potentially Identifying Information. It may also include potentially confidential or proprietary business information that you share with us without taking any reasonable steps to protect it prior to disclosure. Please keep this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

Information We Collect through Propsy

When you use Propsy, we collect and store the following information, which is vital in providing our services to you:

  • The sender, recipient, and content of every “props” command sent in your workspace.
  • The user ids, user group ids, and public channel ids of your workspace.

None of this information is stored in a way that personally identifies the users in your workspace.

How We Use the Collected Information

The information we collect from you is used to:

  • Keep Propsy and its services in working order.
  • Monitor and prevent any problems with our Website or services.
  • Further develop, improve and personalize our Website and services.
  • Respond to your requests and questions, and in general to provide you with the interactions that you request.
  • Protect your security, detect and prevent fraudulent transactions and other illegal activities, fight spam, and protect the rights and property of Figureight and others.

Note that, periodically, we may conduct research by analyzing information on an aggregate basis. Aggregated data cannot be used to identify you personally.

The information stored in the app’s database will not be used to contact users in your workspace in any way.

Who We Share Information With

We do not sell or rent any of the Collected Data or data that you provide to us to any third party. We use the Collected Data in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Information for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Information in connection with the reason for which it was provided.

We may disclose any of the Collected Data without notice to:

  • Independent contractors and organizations who process this information on our behalf, or who provide services to us, such as web/email hosting, mailing list hosting, and fraud/security screening. These third parties will not use your Personal Information for any purpose other than providing us with the products or services for which we contracted, or as required by law.
  • Third parties in a good-faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to take action regarding suspected illegal activities; comply with the law or legal process; or protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users or the public.
  • A third party as a result of an acquisition, reorganization or similar transaction. Upon such transfer, the acquirer’s privacy policy will apply.

Information Shared Publicly

If you choose to comment on the Website, your name (or alias), your URL and your email address may be displayed publicly.

Any unsolicited information you post to the Website, or any other public area will be deemed to be non-confidential and free to reproduce, use, disclose, and distribute to others without limitation or attribution.

Additionally, we may publicly share aggregated or reasonably de-identified data for marketing, hiring, or other purposes.

Public information may also be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.

Where and How Long We Store Your Data

Information collected via our website, through direct interactions with you, or from publicly available services may be stored in our own secure servers, or in secure servers owned by third parties referred to herein. Stored data may be viewed and hosted anywhere in the world, including countries that may not have laws of general applicability regulating the use and transfer of such data. To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, by using any of the above, you voluntarily consent to the trans-border transfer and hosting of such information.

All Collected Data, including information that you provide to us may be stored for future reference until such time as you contact us to request that we delete it.

How We Protect Your Data

We take reasonable steps to protect all Collected Data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Your information is protected and encrypted both at rest and in transit though secure connections. However, no online service is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from us may not be secure. Please take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.

Additionally, no website can fully eliminate security risks. Third parties may circumvent our security measures to unlawfully intercept or access Collected Data or private communications. If your personal data is exposed to an unknown 3rd party we will notify you within 72 hours of the incident being reported. We will post a reasonably prominent notice to our Website if any such security breach occurs and notify you and any relevant regulators or authorities of any security incident that may have resulted in unlawful interception of Personal Information.

Your Rights Over Your Data

If you are located in certain countries, including those that fall under the scope of the European General Data Protection Regulation (AKA the “GDPR”), data protection laws give you rights with respect to your Personal Information, subject to any exemptions provided by the law, including the rights to:

  • request access to your Personal Information;
  • request correction or deletion of your Personal Information;
  • object to our use and processing of your Personal Information;
  • request that we limit our use and processing of your Personal Information; and
  • request portability of your Personal Information.

You may contact us with a request to exercise any of these rights.

Your Choices Over Your Data

To the extent that we collect your Personal Information for the purpose of newsletters and similar communications, we provide you with the means to update or correct your Personal Information.

Additionally, most browsers allow you to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies when using our Website, with the drawback that certain features of it may not function properly.

If you uninstall Propsy from your Slack workspace and would like us to delete your data from our database, please reach out to exercise your right.

Personal Information and Children

We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Website and Propsy are not designed for or directed at children under the age of 13. We will never knowingly request Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13. Any person who provides their Personal Information to us through the Website affirms that they are 13 years of age or older.

Third-Party Websites

The Website may include links to other websites. You should consult the privacy policies of these third-party sites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to other websites, and we cannot control their activities.

Amendments to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will also revise its Effective Date. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the Personal Information we collect.
