Last updated May 3rd, 2024

Crescat is committed to safeguarding the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to us while ensuring a best-possible experience of using our Products. This Privacy Policy (this “Policy”) explains what information Crescat AS, a Norwegian company, and its subsidiaries and other affiliates (together, “Crescat” or “we” and sometimes “us”) collect about you and why, what we may do with that information and how we handle your personal information and User Content.

The Scope of This Privacy Policy

This Policy is incorporated into Crescat’s Terms of Service located at crescat.no/terms (the “Terms of Service”), and applies to the information obtained by us through your use of the web pages available at www.crescat.no, www.crescat.io and all subdomains thereof (collectively, the “Site”), the Services, the Software (together, “Products”) and other Crescat products and services, as well as any future Software or Services provided by Crescat. This includes, without limitation, our applications, support, mobile applications and billing information.

Changes in the Privacy Policy

Please note that the continuation of your Crescat account after any change means that you agree with, and consent to be bound by, the new Policy.

Information Access and Disclosure

Does Crescat Share My Personal Information or User Content?

Crescat is not in the business of selling or renting user information, and we only disclose information when:

We have your explicit consent to share the information. We need to share your information with affiliated and unaffiliated service providers to fulfill your product or service requests.

We believe it is necessary to investigate potential violations of the Terms of Service, to enforce those Terms of Service or where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected illegal activities.

We need to do so in connection with the sale or reorganization of all or part of our business, as permitted by applicable law.

Some third-party applications and services that work with our Products may ask for permission to access your User Content or other information about your account. Those applications will provide you with notice and request your consent in order to obtain such access or information. Please consider your selection of such applications and services, and your permissions, carefully.

We do not share your information with third parties for the purpose of enabling them to deliver their advertisements to you.

Does Crescat Review User Content?

As a rule, Crescat employees do not monitor or view your Personal Information or User Content stored in or transferred through our Products, but it may be viewed if we believe the Terms of Service have been violated and confirmation is required, if we need to do so in order to respond to your requests for user support, if we otherwise determine that we have an obligation to review it as described in the Terms of Service, or to improve our algorithms and Products.

Does Crescat Ever Make Any of My Personal Information or User Content Public?

No, except as otherwise described in this Policy.

Data Storage and Transfer

Where Is My Data Stored?

When you use our Products, User Content you transmit will be stored on the servers our Server Provider Digital Ocean in the EU. When you use the Software on your computing device, User Content you save will be stored locally on that device and sync with our servers.

Please be aware that Personal Information and User Content submitted to Crescat will be transferred to a data centre in the EU under GDPR regulations. If you post or transfer any information to or through our Products, you are confirming your consent to such information, including Personal Information and User Content, being hosted and accessed in the EU.

Data privacy laws or regulations in your home country may differ from those in the EU, but Crescat complies with the applicable law regarding the collection, use and retention of Personal Information collected from all our users, hereunder the GDPR.

How Secure Is My Data?

Crescat is committed to protecting the security of your information and takes reasonable precautions to protect it. However, Internet data transmissions, whether wired or wireless, cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and as a result, we cannot ensure the security of information you transmit to us, including Personal Information and User Content; accordingly, you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk.

Once we receive your data, we protect it on our servers using a combination of security safeguards. We use industry-standard encryption to protect your data in transit, commonly referred to as secure socket layer (“SSL”) technology. The security of the information stored locally in any of our Products installed or used on your computing device(s) requires that you make use of the security features of your device(s). We recommend that you take the appropriate steps to secure all computing devices that you use with our applications and service.

If Crescat learns of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you and provide information on protective steps, if available, through the email address that you have provided to us or by posting a notice on the Site. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive such notices in writing. All dealings with breaches will go through the Chief Data Privacy Officer (CDPO) of Crescat - Matteo. He can be found at contact @crescat.no.

Third Parties and Subcontractors

Crescat utilizes the services of other companies in the work we do, both to deliver the Products, but also for other parts of our business, as following up on customer requests, billing and such. Personal Information on Users will never be shared with third-parties unless otherwise agreed upon with the User, or is in the nature of the service (e.g. sharing account information with the payment service or emails with the newsletter-distributor). If files are ever sent outside the EU area, services are certified according to GDPR regulations.

We use the following subcontractors

  • Paddle (payment)
  • Google Drive (documents) - We use Google Drive to customize documents and share them with you.
  • HubSpot - We use HubSpot to communicate with our users.
  • Amazon Web Services - We use Amazon Web Services, to host our services.

Information deletion

What Happens If I Want to Stop Using Crescat?

You can stop using our Products at any time. Residual copies of your Personal Information and deleted User Content may continue to exist on Crescat’s back-up and archiving systems for up to one year due to the nature of those systems’ operations.

What Happens If Crescat Closes My Account?
