Privacy policy

Last updated: May 2019

This Policy describes the following:

  • What information we collect and how it is collected
  • How we use the information
  • With whom we may share information
  • Legal basis for processing the information
  • Your rights and choices
  • Security and storage of the information
  • Third party websites; and
  • Changes to the Policy and Contact Information.

Throughout this document, we will define a few terms to describe various roles within Diggle. Diggle Users are people using the service we provide in some capacity. They may be further classified into three categories: Diggle Account Owners who legally pays for the services, Diggle Creators who create content on Diggle and host a session, and Diggle Participants who participate in sessions created by Diggle Creators. Every Account will have one Account Owner, but may have several Diggle Creators (as agreed upon with our representatives). Because Account Owners are also Diggle Creators within their respective accounts, everything in this document that applies to Diggle Creators also applies to Account Owners.

Privacy and GDPR


Your data is your data

At Diggle, we value your privacy and we will only collect information that we need to deliver the service to you, and continue to maintain and develop the service.The following is a list of data we collect, process or store, with the purpose and legal ground listed for each item through the General Data Protection Regulation –

  • User account information. Users that choose to register, will have to provide a valid email address and username. The information may be used for the purposes of operating our website, providing our services, ensuring the security of our website and services, maintaining back-ups of our databases and communicating with you. This is required to deliver the Service to you as user, by taking steps, at your request, to enter into such a contract (Terms of Service) cf. GDPR art. 6 (1) b.
  • Transaction information. Customers that have purchased a paid version of the Services provide Diggle (and our payment processors) with billing details such as credit card information, billing email, banking information, location at the time of transaction and/or a billing address. The transaction data may be processed for the purpose of supplying the purchased services and keeping proper records of those transactions. This data may be used for the purpose of delivering the Services to you. Collecting this information is required for performing the contract we entered into with you, at your request (our Terms of Service) cf. GDPR art. 6 (1) b.Additionally, this information needs to be retained in order to comply with accounting and tax regulation cf. GDPR art. 6 (1) c.
  • Technical log data. Like most digital services, our servers automatically collect information when you access or use our Websites or Services and record it in log files. This log data may include the Internet Protocol (IP) address, the address of the web page visited within the Services, browser type and settings, the date and time the Services were used, information about browser configuration, plugins and language preferences.
  • Device information. We may collect information about devices used to access the Services, including type of device, what operating system is used, device settings, application IDs, unique device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information depends on the type of device used and its settings.
  • The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interests cf. GDPR art. 6 (1) f, namely using this data for the purpose of ensuring the proper administration of our website and business, analyzing the use of the website and services, monitoring and improving our website and services, improving the user experience, preventing abuse, and assisting users with support inquiries.

  • Service and transactional notifications. Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of “service or transactional” emails (unless you delete your account). The legal grounds for collecting this information is that it is required for performing our commitment about communicating changes in plans and pricing to you in the contract we entered into with you, at your request (our Terms of Service) cf. GDPR art. 6 (1) b, and our legitimate interest of communicating important information about your account to you, cf. GDPR art. 6 (1) f.

Your responsibility

  • If you, as an Account Owner or Diggle Creator, store any personal data in Diggle, for example as a result of creating a survey, you are seen as responsible for that data.
  • With Diggle you have full control over your data. A common scenario is that you want to retain the aggregated responses for a session, while removing identifying data. We want to make this easy. You can download an excel report with the click of a button, then download displays for the sessions and you have all the data for the session. Then you can simply delete the session, and, except for our database backups and logs, we will have no records of the session ever occurring.

Database backups

  • Our database is backed up daily and the backups are removed 120 days after the next backup is made.
  • If you require information to be completely deleted from the system in a shorter time frame, you can send us an email and we will speed that up.
  • You are responsible for managing the data provided by participants in your Diggle sessions and complying with GDPR and local law.
  • You are free to distribute the images of the answer displays and excel reports generated from your Diggle sessions to anyone. By distributing such images or excel documents, you are responsible for complying with regulations and laws regarding distribution of personal data.
  • If you decide to cancel your account subscription, Diggle will not delete your content, or account data. You can, however, request an account deletion. Diggle will then delete your account, and all its data and content from our servers. After 120 days, the data will also be automatically and permanently deleted from our backups.

Information You Provide Voluntarily

  • Contact data. When you create an account on Diggle, you provide us with some information to contact you, such as an email address. In certain cases, you may also choose to share your phone number for support purposes. If you participate in a session, you may also need to provide an email address if you wish to receive your customized report at the end of the session (not yet available on publishing date).
  • Content data. This includes any content that you create or upload on Diggle such as exercises (title, choices, url’s, pictures..), demographics and information. As a participant, this corresponds to the information you send such as your answers or inputs.
  • Billing data. If you purchase a predefined subscription plan (not a custom made plan), our third-party payment processor (Stripe) will collect and store your billing address and credit card information. We do not store any parts of your credit card number, card type or expiration date on our servers. We may store your name, email and other data we may need in communication with you.
  • Profile data. Diggle Users may give us permission to access their information in other services. For example, with your consent, you may want to get newsletters from Diggle to your email. As this process is partially handled using a third-party marketing and email managing tool (ActiveCampaign), the third party is given access to parts of your personal information, such as username, email, subscription plan and possibly more, depending on the situation. The information we get from those services help us manage our users and grow Diggle, effectively making it possible for us to provide and improve our services.

We have taken reasonable steps to help protect the personal information we collect such as using SSL encryption everywhere. Unfortunately, no measures can be guaranteed to provide 100% security. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your information in all circumstances.

You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.

Subject to your opt-out preferences (see Your Rights and Choices), we may also use third-party advertisers, ad networks, and other advertising, marketing, and promotional companies, to serve advertisements on our websites. Any access to and use of such linked websites and applications is not governed by this Policy but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. We do not endorse these parties, their content, or any products and services they offer, and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites or applications.
