What Is GDPR

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It is a regulation within the EU legal framework concerning data protection and privacy for citizens of the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA). It also addresses the exportation of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas. The GDPR aims primarily to give control to individuals over their personal data and to simplify the regulatory environment for international business by unifying the regulation within the EU.

Our commitment to GDPR

Deckzero and EdBridge are committed to safeguarding the privacy and personal information of the users and visitors of our platform Deckzero. This policy applies in instances where we are acting as a data controller with respect to the personal data of our website visitors and service users; in other words, where we determine the purposes and means of the processing of that personal data.

Note: In this policy, "platform" and "website" refer to deckzero.com or deck0.com; "we" refer to EdBridge or Deckzero.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Insofar as those cookies are not strictly necessary for the provision of Deckzero, we will ask you to consent to our use of cookies when you first visit our website.

Privacy Control

Our website incorporates privacy controls which affect how we will process your personal data. By using the privacy controls, you can specify whether you would like to receive direct marketing communications and limit the publication of your information.

Information We Collect from You

1. Account information

You don’t have to create an account to view, search and run the public topics and decks. If you browse the website as a guest, we collect standard technical information as most websites such as xyz...
 

If you do choose to create an account and become a user,  we need to collect your User Personal Information to create your account, and to provide the services you request, including to provide the Deckzero service, the Content Creation service, or to respond to support requests.

We will use your email address to communicate with you, if you have given consent for the particular reason. Please see our section on email communication for more information.

The platform does not ask for detailed personal information other than a user’s full name and email address.

2. Technical information

In order to provide technical assistance and platform improvements information, the platform may collect technical information from website browsers, such as web server logs, or other log information, such as User session or activity logs, and anonymised IP addresses of users.

We collect Technical Information to better understand how our website visitors use Deckzero, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.

Users' Personal Information and Technical Information will only be used for internal purposes, such as to maintain logs for security reasons, for training purposes, and for legal documentation and compliance.

3. User content data

Our platform allows users to upload and/or create user content, including presentations, code, messages, comments, images, and results generated by the users through the use of the hosting platform and consumption of the deck contents. 

Users can restrict public access by changing the level of visibility/searchability and permission of access to topics and decks. If your content is made public, anyone (including us) may view its contents and potentially make other uses of it. If you have included private or sensitive information in your public presentation, such as email addresses, that information may be indexed by search engines or used by third parties. If your user content is shared privately, those you have shared it with may use it in a manner inconsistent with our Terms of Use, and/or inconsistent with your wishes, including disclosing it publicly.

We do not associate content information that is stored in your presentations, infographics or other free-form content inputs with personal information about you or others. Information in your decks and infographics belongs to you, and you are responsible for it, as well as for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Our employees do not access private content unless required to for security or maintenance, or for support reasons, or with your consent.

Occasionally to conduct research for the purposes of better understanding user behavior and in order to create improved experiences and new functionality, strictly on an anonymous basis, we may view access your content. The information generated from this analysis is stored in a manner which cannot be linked to the owner’s content and cannot be used to identify an individual.

4. Payment information

Browsing the public topics on our platform is free. We also provide a certain amount of computing power for casual users free of charge. In order to gain access to specific premium features and use more computing power, you must provide us with payment information, including your credit or debit card number, card expiry date, CVV code, and billing address.

 
How to Access and Control Your Information

  • Account data: you can log into your account to change your email address, password and name details at any time;

  • Content data: you can change the status of visibility, searchable, read, edit, and fork permission of each deck folder and each individual deck at the setting area. You can also delete your decks at any time. However if your deck or deck folder has been forked by other users, you will only be able to delete the version created originally by yourself.

  • Requests concerning your personal data: You have the right to request a copy of your information, to object to our use of your information (including for marketing purposes), to request the deletion or restriction of your information, or to request your information in a structured, electronic format.

  • Deactivate your account: if you no longer wish to use our services, please send us an email to request the deactivation and deletion of your account and relevant data.

Information We Do NOT Collect

We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as address, telephone, medical information, gender, occupation or regilious information.
If you store any sensitive personal information on our servers, such as in a repository or in your public profile, you are responsible for complying with any regulatory controls regarding that data.

We do not intentionally collect User Personal Information that is stored in your repositories or other free-form content inputs. Information in your repositories belongs to you, and you are responsible for it, as well as for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Any personal information within a user's repository is the responsibility of the repository owner.

Our Minors Policy

Deckzero does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 16. If we become aware that a child under 16 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information.

Deckzero does not direct any content, products, or Services at children under the age of 13. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online.

If you are a user between the ages of 13 and 16, you may only use Deckzero through an account created by a parent or guardian, with that parent or guardian’s permission – provided that in your jurisdiction there is no requirement for you or your parent to provide any consent to Deckzero for a minor’s use beyond what is already provided in Deckzero’s Terms of Use and Privacy policy.

By way of example, in some Designated Countries users as old as 16 may be required to have their parent or guardian submit their specific consent to Deckzero, and in those countries users under 16 years of age may not use Deckzero.
