Changes to this privacy policy

GDPR compliance

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) took effect May 25, and we are fully behind the spirit of these regulations for a safe and secure Internet. We aspire to embrace privacy by design and, whenever possible, to not collect and store personally-identifiable information.

Our Privacy Policy contains mentions of the few instances where personally-identifiable information is required. Typically this will include an email address in order to log in to our APPs or website.

Overall, we aim for privacy by default: if data collection is not integral to the way our product works, then we won’t collect it. This approach has felt very much in line with the spirit of GDPR, and we’re fortunate that a lot of these data collection practices have been in place at Acaia for some time. As such, you may see few banners or forms requesting consent for us to collect personally-identifiable information for tracking or other purposes. We don’t deem this information necessary to provide Acaia's service to you, and we choose not to engage in activities and strategies that make this data relevant.

At any time, you may request your information to be sent to you for review, and we honor any requests by you to have your information deleted and forgotten.
