We are focused on protecting your personal data and doing the right thing by you in terms of your privacy rights. For the purposes of the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (“UK-GDPR”) and General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“EU-GDPR”), Canopact is the ‘controller’ and responsible for your personal data as part of using Canopact’s Website or Services (as defined below).


2. WHAT DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

This Privacy Policy supplements our Terms of Use and sets out how we collect, process, disclose or otherwise use Personal Data in connection with our website www.canopact.com ("Website") and the various products and services provided by Canopact (“Services”). Our Privacy Policy may also apply to the processing of your Personal Data in connection with Canopact’s marketing and publicity activities. This policy does not apply to the practices and processing of our customers, to companies that we do not own or control, to individuals that we do not employ or manage, to services provided by other companies but accessible through our Website and/or Services.

The categories of companies or persons who may receive Personal Data are set out Section 5 below.

A. Information You Provide to Us:

Your Personal Data: We process Personal Data you actively and knowingly provide to us. For example, we collect Personal Data such as your name and email address if you sign up for a newsletter or you request a demo of our Services. If you sign up for our Services, some information is required to create a Canopact Account, such as your position at your company. If you choose not to provide us with certain information, you may not be able to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features.

Your Company Data: We process basic data on your company which you actively and knowingly provide to us.

API Keys: In order to connect your Canopact account to a third-party software provider (e.g. Expensify) via an API, we will ask for you to input the API keys for your account with the relevant third-party provider. An API key is a simple encrypted string that identifies an application without any principal. Canopact doesn’t have the ability to view or use your API keys, but the API keys will be securely stored on our Website in order for the API connection to function effectively. If you choose not to provide us with an API key,you may not be able to take advantage of some of our features.

Travel & Expense Data: You may be using an email-based workflow in lieu of an API connection. If this is the case, we will ask for you to send travel booking confirmations and/ or expense receipts to info@canopact.com. We ensure that this data is securely processed on our email servers and is not sent to another email address or downloaded as a file. Our retention policy is to delete all travel booking confirmations and expense receipts within 7 days of them being received.
