gipsy Products Privacy

Gipsy offers data security products and services. Our goal is to ensure information and network security by providing quality products and services in these areas while also respecting privacy and personal data of customers, Internet users and business partners.

For this purpose, we collect only that personal data absolutely necessary for the specified purposes, on a best efforts basis. For the collected information and data, we strive to apply adequate solutions to anonymize them, or at least to pseudonimyze them.

 

Our main principle applied to the data we collect is anonymization of all technical data that can be used by Gipsy only for the specified purposes below. In cases where perfect anonymization of technical data is not possible, the potential identification of a user could be possible only in very limited cases and only by highly skilled IT specialists.

Personal data according to the European legislation definition (GDPR - Regulation 2016/679) means:

any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to his physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity;

 

In this context, Gipsy processes personal data for the following main purposes:

  1. To ensure network and information security by:

    • assuring correct and efficient operation of its products and services, according to the technical specifications, and for their improvement, including analyzing the reported IT security issues, delivering and customizing the related services to the users needs and developing new technologies;

    • support or counseling services for its users of gipsy;

  2. To make statistical analysis and market studies;

  3. To perform marketing activities for Gipsy's own needs.

 

Personal data collected

Gipsy may collect personal information from its users from its Solutions in three different ways:

  1. directly provided by a user or a Gipsy Partner;

  2. indirectly provided by its products or other sources, such as:

    • technical data sent by the Gipsy products installed by users

    • publicly available information from data leaks.

 

Personal data directly provided by a user/partner

When you create an account or login in Gipsy (which is mandatory to activate and manage your services), we might ask your name, surname and/or email address for management of your Gipsy products or services and so we can contact you with updates, notices, feedback messages and other types or transactional communications or for improvement of the information security of your devices, or to provide support.

 

In certain cases, when you download a trial version of our products, we will collect your email address, in order to have a contact method with you, to receive information such as updates, notices, feedback messages and other types or transactional communications or for improvement of the information security of your devices, or to provide support. We reserve the right to verify the existence of that email address, as a security check and to prevent fraud.

Also, when you access the Support, we may ask for a valid email address or a phone number to communicate with you in providing support.. All these data are being used for contacting you, for contractual purposes, providing a specific user with a license to use our products, for solving a request or complaint you addressed to us or for offering technical support. Gipsy may also ask for other data that could be considered personal data, if those are necessary for solving the information security problem you sought help on.

 

The legal basis for processing these data is performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract. The minimum data for entering into a contract or creating an account with Gipsy are a name and email address, without them it would be impossible for us to offer you our products and services.

 

The data used for licensing information is kept for the duration of the contract, plus five years after its expiration to be able to prove or defend any legal complaints on contractual issues.

 

The data used for support services is kept for different periods of time, depending especially if the problem has been solved and the exact method of communication with the support services, but in no case the data will be kept for more than five years after the last communication took place. This period is necessary for Gipsy to be able to defend any legal complaints on contractual issues that may arise.

 

Whenever we note that we use legitimate interest as a legal basis for a specific situation, we rely on internal legal analysis on how in these specific cases we have balanced out the legitimate interest to the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. The analysis is updated if we decide to collect more data, for another purpose or there are new developments that require a new assessment.

 

We may use these data for marketing purpose for a maximum period of contractual duration, plus five years after the contract is terminated, except if the data subject has opted out from these communications at any moment in time. After this time frame expires the data will be deleted or anonymized.

Technical data sent by Gipsy product

when you use Gipsy products it is possible to share with us some technical details, such as data for identifying the device (UUID), the infected URL you reported or an IP addresses. If you use a Gipsy product that integrates with your email server, some technical data of the infected files could be send to us, including data such as sender, recipient, subject or attachment. In most cases, these technical data may not lead to your direct or indirect identification, but in some very specific cases computer specialists might be able to identify a specific user. Therefore, we treat all such information as personal data and protect it as such.

 

This information is solely used for the purpose of information and network security by correct and efficient operation of the products and services, according to the technical specifications, and their improvement, including by analyzing the reported security issues. This includes delivering and customizing related services. Also, we may use this information for statistical purposes and improving the quality of our products.

 

The legal basis for processing these data is performance of a contract to which the data subject is part of.

 

These data are is being stored for a limited period, depending on its usefulness for the current information security needs. Based on the current speed of technology, we will not need them for over 10 years from the day of the collection.

 

Collecting Data from publicly available information (data leaks).

In the recent years, an increasing number of companies' databases have been involved in incidents leading to user details becoming publicly available. We are constantly analyzing these situations and the public data leaks in order to identify if the exposed records can be used to improve the information security of our users.

 

We use this information exclusively for the purpose of ensuring information security by notifying our users that their emails, passwords or other data might have been hacked in the past, so it is not safe to use them anymore.

 

The legal basis for this collection is legitimate interest of our users, of Gipsy and of any third party to ensure network and information security, by not using credentials that have already been hacked. We do this based on Art 6 (1) f of GDPR and explanations on legitimate interest for information security in Recital 49 of GDPR. These data are is being stored for a limited period, depending on its usefulness for the current information security needs. The data subject may always ask us not to collect data about him from data leaks. Based on the current speed of technology, we will not need them for over 10 years from the day of the collection.

Access to the collected personal data is restricted only to Gipsy employees and data processors that need access to this information. All Gipsy information security policies are ISO 27001 certified.

 

Gipsy may use other IT companies to process the collected personal data. These companies are considered data processors and have strict contractual obligations to keep the confidentiality of the processed data and to offer at least the same level of security as Gipsy. Data processors have the obligation not to allow third parties to process personal data on behalf of Gipsy and to access, use and/or keep the data secure and confidential.

Any information you transmit is done on your own risk.

Additional information regarding personal data collection of certain Gipsy services and products

 

Parental control services

This chapter complements the privacy policy with specific details regarding processing information which may be personal data and which are collected by Gipsy for the Parental Control services.

Some Gipsy products include a parental control option. If you buy such products or activate this option you have the possibility to monitor your children's activity and to restrict access to certain applications, websites or Internet services. This is only possible on supported devices (for example computers or phones) for which you have installed and activated Gipsy.

 

The parental control services option settings are managed from the web interface through which you access your Gipsy account. More details regarding the functionalities of this product are available on our dedicated webpage.

 

Before you can activate the parental control services, Gipsy will ask certain data for creating a profile – name, age and sex of the person. The name will be used exclusively for device identification purposes and you do not have to give your child's full name. Age and sex are necessary only for determining the default level of online protection offered by this product, which can be also later changed or configured by the account administrator.

 

Where this Gipsy parental control product is installed and an active profile is associated with the device, Gipsy may collect, exclusively for the purpose of providing parental control services, including for display in the parent’s account, detailed information about the use of the device such as: visited websites, search engine keywords, used applications and software, phone contacts, social media monitoring and geo-localization information.

 

Some Gipsy parental control products – such as ones that include cyberbullying-prevention features - may check social media text and images in conversations of your children and may collect stored images and videos. We do that only to inform the parents that some activities are suspected to be dangerous, without sharing your children’s conversations with the parents. We employ privacy-enhancing technologies, so that we do not receive full images from the conversations, and we delete or anonymize private text conversations in a maximum of 2 hours after a conversation has ended. In certain jurisdictions, including the United States, we collect data for cyberbullying-prevention research from parental control products with or without an active cyberbullying-prevention subscription; parents may opt out from such data collection in the product control panel. We are constantly researching how to improve our technologies in order to meet the scope of the technology (flag suspicious content), and to reduce any kind of information being sent to us, by including all detection technologies in the device of the user.

 

The collected information depends on the settings configured by the parent in Gipsy. The only purpose of collecting this data is reporting to you, the parent. We do not use children information for their identification or monitoring Internet access by us.

 

We do not transmit to third parties the above mentioned information for marketing purposes or any other information which could lead to identifying your children.

 

When processing this data from your children's device, Gipsy acts as a technical intermediary. Therefore, the responsibility of a notice to your children regarding the installation of this software and the way the personal data is processed is exclusively up to you. You are the only one who may activate this option and specify which type of personal information you wish to be collected.

 

The Gipsy account owner has administration rights for Gipsy products and services which includes parental control services. As such, he/she has full responsibility in assuring that he/she can undertake the surveillance activity from a legal point of view and that he/she has the right to know the location, to block the content or applications from that device. Therefore, we recommend to activate the parental control service exclusively on your minor children's devices or where you have the legal right to do so, based on the applicable law. We inform you that any illegal monitoring of online behavior or communications may be a crime. We do not recommend activating parental control services on devices used by persons who are over 16 years old, or otherwise in circumstances in which use of the parental control services is illegal.

 

Gipsy Traffic

This chapter completes the rest of the privacy policy with specific details regarding processing information which may be personal data that are collected by Gipsy.

 

If you use Gipsy, the device will scan all the traffic in your network for malicious activity. This means that we will collect detailed technical data from all your smart devices that are connected to your network that will be used only for the purposes specified in Chapter 2.2. above.

In most cases, these technical data may not lead to your direct or indirect identification, but in some very specific cases computer specialists might be able to identify a specific user. Therefore, we treat all such information as personal data and protect it as such.

 

If a new device from other users is connected to your network, Gipsy will also analyze network traffic from that device. As a network owner, it is your responsibility to inform the other users of your network that you use Gipsy for the protection of the network traffic and therefore their traffic will also be analyzed, as described above.
