- User-provided Information. When you use the Service, you may provide and we may collect information from you, also including information what is generally called “personally identifiable” information, or “personal information,” which is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (the Personal Data). Examples of Personal Data include name, email address, mailing address, mobile phone number, and credit card or other billing information. Personal Data also includes other information, such as date of birth, geographic area, or preferences, when any such information is linked to information that identifies or is able to identify a specific individual. You may provide us with Personal Data in various ways on the Service. For example, you provide us with Personal Data when you register for an account, use the Service, post Client Data, sign documents, interact with other users of the Service through communication or messaging features, or send us customer service related requests.
- As part of the Service, you may provide us with Client Data, including Personal Data about your customer or a third person, to store in the System on your behalf in connection with your use of the Service. Please note that we have no direct relationship with the individuals or companies whose Personal Data you have inserted in the System as part of Client Data.

Do Not Track Settings
Your device operating system or browser may include settings, options, or add-on components to control the placement and presence of cookies and access to location information. We do not track our users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and do not specifically respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party websites do keep track of your browsing activities, including across other websites on the Internet, which enables these websites to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such websites, your browser may allow you to set a DNT signal on your browser so that third parties know you do not want to be tracked.
The Service may contain features or links to websites and services provided by third parties. Any information you provide on third-party sites or services is provided directly to the operators of such services and is subject to those operators’ policies, if any, governing privacy and security, even if accessed through the Service. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices and policies of third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through the Service. We encourage you to learn about third parties’ privacy and security policies before providing them with information.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Our Service is not directed to children under the age of 18, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 18 without obtaining parental consent. If you are under 18 years of age, then please do not use or access the Service at any time or in any manner. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under 18 years of age has obtained an account on the Service, then you may alert us at email@example.com
and request that we delete that child’s personally identifiable information from our systems.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use certain physical, managerial, and technical safeguards that are designed to improve the integrity and security of your Personal Data.
However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot therefore ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or store on the Service, and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your Personal Data has been compromised, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If we learn of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may post a notice through the Service if a security breach occurs.
We only retain the information collected from you for as long as your account is active or otherwise for a limited period of time as long as we need it to fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements as follows:
- billing information is retained for a period of seven years as of their provision to Sixfold in accordance with the German accounting and taxation laws;
- information on legal transactions between you and us is retained for a period of ten years as of provision of such information to Sixfold in accordance with the general limitation period set for civil claims in the German General Part of the Civil Code Act.
Although we may allow you to adjust your privacy settings to limit access to certain Personal Data, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on the Service. Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share your information. Further, even after information posted on the Service is removed, caching and archiving services may have saved that information, and other users or third parties may have copied or stored the information available on the Service. We cannot and do not guarantee that information you post on or transmit to the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
We may transfer, process and store Personal Data we collect through the Services in centralized databases located in Germany, or in other areas of Europe, or outside Europe, e.g. in United States. The country we are processing the information may not have the same data protection framework as the country from which you may be using the Service. We will comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of Personal Data.
The Service is hosted in Europe and is intended for visitors located in Europe. If you choose to use the Service from other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from the laws in European Union (the EU), then please note that we may be transferring your Personal Data outside of those regions to EU for storage and processing. Also, we may transfer your data from EU to other countries or regions. By providing any information, including Personal Data, on or to the Service, you consent to such transfer, storage, and processing.
