Privacy Policy.

Last updated on: January 12th 2020

As part of our mission to help make e-business, business management, business scaling, and marketing management easier and better for everyone, Krepling Inc. and its affiliates, (collectively, “Krepling”) collect and process a lot of information. This Privacy Policy is intended to help you better understand how we collect, use and store your personal information—whether you are a business or end-user that uses Krepling’s products, applications or services (together, the “Services”), a customer that shops at a website, blog or store using our technology, a participant in Krepling’s “Affiliates” program, or whether you’re simply visiting this website. By using any of Krepling’s Services, or by dealing with a business using Krepling’s Services, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and, as applicable, the Krepling Terms of Service

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our privacy practices or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will give you notice of such changes by posting the revised policy on this Website or in the Latest News tab in the Client Area, and where appropriate, by other means. By continuing to use this Website or the Support Service after these changes are posted, you agree to the revised policy.

1. Information from Businesses and Users

 

Privacy matters! If you are a business or user using Krepling, your customers or visitors need to understand how you (and how Krepling) collects and processes their personal information as the data controller. Accordingly, if you use the Services, you agree to post an up-to-date and accurate privacy policy on your website, blog or store that complies with the laws applicable to your business. You also agree to obtain consent from your customers for the use and access of their personal information by Krepling and other third parties. In addition, if you are collecting any sensitive personal information from your customers (including information relating to medical or health conditions, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or sexuality), you agree to obtain affirmative, express consent from your customers for the use and access of sensitive personal information by Krepling and other third parties.

2. What Information Do We Collect From Users and Why?

 

We collect your name, company name, address, email address, phone number(s) and payment details (for example, your credit card information).

We use this information to provide you with our Services; for example, to confirm your identity, contact you, provide you with advertising and marketing, and invoice you. We also use this information to make sure that we comply with the legal requirements.

We use this information to give you access to and improve our Services; for example, to make our platform interface easier to use. We also use this information to personalize the Services for you. Finally, we may use this information to provide you with advertising or marketing.

 We collect personal information about your customers that you share with us or that customers provide while shopping or during checkout.

We use this information to provide you with our Services and so that you can process orders and better serve your customers.

 Where we need to verify your identity (for example, if there are concerns around identity theft, or if you call into support and we need to authenticate your account), we may request that you provide us with government-issued identification information.

 We use some of the personal information you provide us to conduct some level of automated decision-making — for example, we use certain personal information to help us screen accounts for risk or fraud concerns.

 We will also use personal information in other cases where you have given us your express permission.
