This Policy governs our processing of your "personal data" (as defined in the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation EU2016/679 (“GDPR”)) and the way in which we deal with other data that is not personal information. The term “processing” is used as defined in the GDPR. It includes collection, storage, and all of the ways we use, and allow you to use, personal information, when we provide our services. You are the data controller under the GDPR of the personal information you provide to us as part of your Account Data (see below). Drizzle Technologies Private Limited (CIN U72900KA2020PTC133651) ("ente", "we", "us" or "our") of Flat 301, Purvi Pride Apartments, Varthur, Bangalore, Karnataka, India, 560087 is the data controller under the GDPR of all other personal information.
This Policy is divided into five sections to make it easier for you to see which provisions apply to different types of data. Words and phrases which are defined in our Terms of Service (“ToS”) have the same meanings when they are used in this Policy.
The sections of this Policy are:
3.1 This Introduction section.
3.2 The “Your Files” section. This covers the actual encrypted files that you upload, access and share using our services.
3.3 The “Account Data” section. This covers the metadata that is collected and generated by our systems when you use our services, and the information that you provide to us when you register and communicate with us.
3.4 The “Website Usage Data” section. This covers the data that is collected and generated by our systems when anyone browses our website.
3.5 The “General Terms” section, which applies to all our services and all types of data.
5.1 When you upload a file, it is already encrypted at your device, so we do not know whether it is personal to you or someone else, relates to a business or some other organisation, or what it contains. We also generate and store encrypted previews of images, videos and certain other types of file.
5.2 All Your Files remain encrypted at all times while they are on our system. They are never received, stored or otherwise dealt with by us in unencrypted form because any decryption takes place only on your device or that of another user to whom you have provided the file/album/folder/collection keys or links that are created when you give them access.
5.3 We collect Your Files because that is necessary for us to provide our end-to-end encrypted cloud storage and collaboration services that you contract for when you agree to our ToS.
5.4 Although Your Files are not personal information within our system because you have encrypted them, you should know that we store Your Files and make them available from servers in secure facilities in Europe or in countries that the European Commission has determined to have an adequate level of protection under Article 45 of the GDPR, depending where you are based.
5.5 We keep Your Files while you are subscribed to our services but this is subject to our suspension and termination rights set out in our ToS. You should download Your Files prior to termination of services.
5.6 If you forget your password you will lose access to all Your Files.
5.7 When you delete one of Your Files it will be made inaccessible, marked for deletion and removed when the next appropriate file purging process is run, subject to any retention specifically allowed under this Policy or our ToS. After account termination, all Your Files will be marked for deletion and removed when the next appropriate file purging process is run, subject to any retention specifically allowed under this Policy or our ToS.
5.9 We may, but shall not be obliged to, keep Your Files after your account has been suspended or terminated. In particular, we may, but shall not be obliged to, keep Your Files where we consider it necessary for evidential purposes relating to a breach of our ToS or with respect to current or anticipated action by any competent enforcement authority or other third party. With respect to release of Your Files to competent enforcement authorities and third parties, see our Takedown Guidance Policy.
