However, we may collect non-personally-identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. sumApp’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how sumApp’s visitors use its website and to monitor and improve our Website and Services. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.   

We rely upon a number of legal grounds to ensure that our use of Personal Data and data collected by you is compliant with applicable law.

Disclosing Your Information    

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Security and Retention

We make reasonable efforts to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk associated with the processing of Personal Data. We maintain organizational, technical and administrative measures designed to protect Personal Data within our organization against unauthorized access, destruction, loss, alteration or misuse. Personal Data is only accessible to a limited number of personnel who need access to the information to perform their duties.

We retain Personal Data after we cease providing Services to you, even if you close your sumApp account, to the extent necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations. We also retain Personal Data to comply with our tax, accounting, and financial reporting obligations. Where we retain data, we do so in accordance with any limitation periods and records retention obligations that are imposed by applicable law.
