This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.
To further clarify. Data protection law in certain jurisdictions differentiates between the “controller” and “processor” of information. In general, the Workspace Owner is the controller of Content. In general, Smarkup is the processor of Content and the controller of Personal Data and Usage Data.
We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.
While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Data"). Personally, identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:

We may use your Personal Data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or the instructions provided in any email we send.

Workspace Owner can choose to permit or restrict Third Party Services for their Workspace. Typically, Third Party Services are software that integrates with our Services, and Workspace Owner can permit its Authorized Users to enable and disable these integrations for their Workspace. Once enabled, the provider of a Third Party Service may share certain information with Smarkup. For example, if a cloud storage application is enabled to permit files to be imported to a Workspace, we may receive a user name and email address of Authorized Users, along with additional information that the application has elected to make available to Smarkup to facilitate the integration. Authorized Users should check the privacy settings and notices in these Third Party Services to understand what data may be disclosed to Smarkup. When a Third Party Service is enabled, Smarkup is authorized to connect and access Other Information made available to Smarkup in accordance with our agreement with the Third Party Provider. We do not, however, receive or store passwords for any of these Third Party Services when connecting them to the Services.
Smarkup may receive data about organizations, industries, Website visitors, marketing campaigns and other matters related to our business from parent corporation(s), affiliates and subsidiaries, our partners or others that we use to make our own information better or more useful. This data may be combined with Other Information we collect and might include aggregate level data, such as which IP addresses correspond to zip codes or countries. Or it might be more specific: for example, how well an online marketing or email campaign performed.
We receive Other Information when submitted to our Websites or if you participate in a focus group, beta access, contest, activity or event, apply for a job at Smarkup, request support, interact with our social media accounts or otherwise communicate with Smarkup.
Content will be used by Smarkup in accordance with Workspace Owner’s instructions, including any applicable terms in the Terms of Service and Workspace Owner’s use of Services functionality, and as required by applicable law. Smarkup is a processor of Content and Workspace Owner is the controller. Workspace Owner may, for example, use the Services to grant and remove access to a Workspace, assign roles and configure settings, access, modify, export, share and remove Content and otherwise apply its policies to the Services.
Smarkup uses Usage Data and Other Information in furtherance of our legitimate interests in operating our Services, Websites and business. More specifically, Smarkup uses Data and Other Information:

We will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer periods.

Our Services display information like your name, profile picture, device, and email address to other users in places like your user profile and sharing notifications. You can also share Content with other users if you choose. When you register your Smarkup account with an email address on a domain owned by your employer or organization, we may help collaborators and administrators find you and your Workspace by making some of your basic information—like your name, Workspace name, profile picture, and email address—visible to other users on the same domain. This helps you sync up with workspaces you can join and helps other users share pages and folders with you.
Certain features let you make additional information available to others.
You can also give third-party providers access to your information and account—for example, via Smarkup APIs. Just remember that their use of your information will be governed by their privacy policies and terms.
If you are an Authorized User of a Smarkup Workspace, your Workspace Owners and administrator may have the ability to access and control your account. Please refer to your organization’s internal policies if you have questions about this. If you interact with a user from a different Workspace (by, for example, joining a shared folder or accessing stuff shared by that user), members of that Workspace may be able to view the name, email address, profile picture, and IP address that was associated with your account at the time of that interaction.
Under certain circumstances, Smarkup Limited may be required to disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in response to valid requests by public authorities (e.g. a court or a government agency).
