Welcome to Akkroo! We ask that you read this privacy notice carefully as it contains important information on who we are, how and why we collect, store, use and share personal information, your rights in relation to your personal information and on how to contact us and supervisory authorities in the event you have a complaint.
We use your data to provide the Akkroo service to you, to promote the service, and for the purposes of running our business.
We delete your data when it is no longer needed for these things.
Generally, we do not otherwise give your information for anyone else to use for their own purposes, but we use a number of external service providers to power our operations – some of these are outside Europe.
We are happy to answer your questions about any of this – email us at email@example.com.
This policy is for customers and users of the Akkroo service. If you are someone who has given their contact details to one of our customers using the Akkroo service, please see the Use by our Customers section below.
Akkroo Ltd collects, uses and is responsible for certain personal information about you. When we do so we are regulated under the General Data Protection Regulation which applies across the European Union (including in the United Kingdom) and we are responsible as ‘controller’ of that personal information for the purposes of those laws. Data may be processed by Akkroo Ltd and its group of companies.
We collect the following personal information when you provide it to us.
We may obtain some basic user account data about you from the business you work for: company location, office address, company name, your email, job title, first and last name, phone number, mobile phone number, salutation, and any LinkedIn, Twitter or other relevant social media information which might help us improve our services to you.
This section tells you what uses we make of your information.
We use your information in the following ways:
To allow us to operate the Akkroo service, and the business operations we engage in to that end, including facilitating your use of the Akkroo dashboard and mobile app, and supporting any operational or technical queries you may raise. We process this information to perform a contract with you or on the basis of legitimate interest.
To use data analytics to improve our website, products/services, marketing, and user relationships and experiences. We process this information on the basis of legitimate interest.
To administer and protect our business. We process this information on the basis of legitimate interest.
To deliver relevant website, blog and webinar content and promotional emails we send to you and measure or understand the effectiveness of them. We process this information on the basis of legitimate interest and where applicable, your consent.
We use your Marketing and Communication Preferences to make sure we don’t send you anything you have asked not to receive. We process this information on the basis of your consent.
We will also use your information in the event that we need to enforce our terms of service, or to help us defend any legal claims against us. We process this information on the basis of legitimate interest.
The GDPR requires all organisations that process personal data to have a “Lawful Basis” for doing so. The Lawful Bases on which we process your personal data are as follows:
Legitimate Interest: means the legitimate interest of us, and our customers, in our conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service and the best and most secure Akkroo experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Performance of Contract: means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract between us and you or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Legal Obligation: means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.
Consent: your affirmative consent to particular instances of our processing personal data.

In order to have Akkroo work with Integrated Services, you may need to log in to your account with the Integrated Service. We store your authentication credentials for the Integrated Service solely to enable your use of the Integrated Service. The Integrated Service providers are not our data processors – they’re appointed by you or your organisation to process data on your behalf. We cannot therefore make any promises about how they will use your data. For more information on the privacy and data protection practices of the providers of Integrated Services, please view their respective privacy policies.
