Roles and Responsibilities
Please note that certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR or the CCPA typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Information: the “Data Controller” (or under the CCPA, “Business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor” (or under the CCPA, “Service Provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller (or Business). Please see the below explanation where we elaborate on how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
Appgrade is the “Data Processor” of the Personal Information of users which we process on behalf of our Customer (who is the “Data Controller” of such Personal Information). Our service providers who process such user Personal Information on our behalf are the “Sub-processors” of such Personal Information.
For the avoidance of doubt, each Customer is solely responsible for providing adequate notice to the users whose Personal Information may be processed by Appgrade for the provision of the Services. This includes, to the extent required, sufficient reference to the processing of their Personal Information via the Services, and any other information necessary to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws and obtaining all approvals and consents from individuals as required under the applicable laws.
You have the right at any time to request to access or modify your information. To exercise these options, please contact us at email@example.com.
In some jurisdictions, in particular those located within the European Union (the “EU”) or within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), you may be afforded specific rights regarding your Personal Information. Subject to such eligibility, you may have the following rights to:
Request a rectification of your Personal Information where the information we hold about you is incorrect or incomplete.
Object to the processing of your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes.
Object to the processing of your Personal Information where our legal basis for that processing is that such processing is necessary for our legitimate interests.
Object to an automated decision-making (including profiling) in certain circumstances.
Request the erasure of your Personal Information in certain circumstances, such as where processing is no longer necessary for the purpose it was originally collected for, and there is no compelling reason for us to continue to process or store it.
Receive your Personal Information, or ask us to transfer it to another organization that you have provided to us, which we process by automated means, where our processing is either based on your consent or is necessary for the performance of a contract with you.
Generally, with regard to information collected on our Website, Service App is a “Data Controller”. Therefore, if you wish to exercise the above mentioned rights, please contact us, and we will make our best efforts to fulfill your request.
If we are a Data Processor with respect to your Personal Information, we will notify the relevant Customer about your request, and make our best efforts to enable them to allow you to exercise your rights.
If you wish to file a request regarding any of the above, you may contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Links to Other Websites
