GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
Canvas Planner collects personal data from users, as they have provided themselves by creating their profile. This personal data consists of: Name (Optional), Email and Password.
The personal data is stored so that users can access their Canvas Planner again at a later date. This is done using SharksMedia, which hosts the software on a server in Germany.
Canvas Planner collects information about how often users are active in the program as part of our service. This information is used to help users get started with the program. This is done using Intercom, which is being used to help with customer success.
In case of payment by debit card, we use 3 external suppliers to handle this part of the process. This is because we would like the security to be the top of the card information so we have nothing saved on our server. The information is stored, encrypted and protected using Clearhaus, Quickpay, and Upodi, each of which takes care of different parts of the process.
Users can always ask to have their profile deleted or delete their profile if they wish.
After 5 years, we delete inactive profiles in our backend on the server as well as in Upodi.
If a profile has not been active for 9 months, it will be deleted from our daily Intercom support program, which we use to help uninvited users and provide ongoing support.
To handle potential new customers, we use Hubspot as a CRM system. Leads that will not become customers will be deleted after 5 years unless we are asked to delete it before.
We send newsletters via e-mail to the users who have subscribed. This email list is stored via Mailchimp, from which we also send newsletters. Users can always unsubscribe from the mailing list.
We use Google’s following two applications: Google Analytics (GA) and Google Tag Manager to collect information about which pages on our website are being visited including. which buttons are clicked on. In this regard, GA anonymous collects information about visitor users based on their age, gender, geographical location, etc. This data is used solely to improve our website for visitors who are looking at it.
Deleting: In case a user wishes to delete his information (to be forgotten), the person himself can do this via their account. When deleting a profile nothing else is stored.
In the event that a user wishes to see our data processing agreements with the subcontractors, please contact Canvas Planner, and we will be able to assist you.
