Categories of personal information

"User Personal Information" is any personal information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify them. Information such as a user name and password, an email address, a real name, country or origin, and a photograph are examples of “User Personal Information.” User Personal Information includes Personal Data as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation.

"Technical Information" may include information we collect from website browsers, such as web server logs, or other log information, such as User session or activity logs. Technical Information may be connected to User Personal Information such as a username or an email address, or to other potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, analyze, improve, and optimize our website and service.

Information from users with accounts

If you create an account, we require some basic information at the time of account creation. You will create your own user name and password, and we will ask you for a valid email address. You also have the option to give us more information if you want to, and this may include "User Personal Information."

Information from website browsers

If you're just browsing the website, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs, to collect Technical Information. This is stuff we collect from everybody, whether they have an account or not.

The information we collect about all visitors to our website includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

Information we collect from third parties

From time to time, Ohbubble receives personal information about individuals from third parties. This may happen if you sign up for a training or to receive information about Ohbubble from one of our vendors.

Why we collect this information

  • We need your User Personal Information to create your account, and to provide the services you request, including to provide the Ohbubble services or to respond to support requests.

  • We use your User Personal Information, specifically your email address, to identify you within Ohbubble’s system.

  • We use it to fill out your profile and have your information available for support requests or to identify you.

  • We will use your email address to communicate with you, if you've said that's okay, and only for the reasons you’ve said that’s okay. Please see our section on email communication for more information.

  • We use User Personal Information and other data to make recommendations for you, such as to suggest new services you may want to purchase or take part in.

  • We collect Technical Information to better understand how our website visitors use Ohbubble, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.

  • We collect personal information from third parties for the purposes for which it was authorized to be collected. For example, you may authorize Ohbubble to contact you for marketing purposes via a third party's platform. If we need to use your personal information for other purposes, we will ask your permission first.

  • We use your User Personal Information and Technical Information for internal purposes, such as to maintain logs for security reasons, for training purposes, and for legal documentation and compliance.

  • We limit our use of your User Personal Information to the purposes listed in this Privacy Statement. If we need to use your User Personal Information for other purposes, we will ask your permission first. You can always see what information we have, how we're using it, and what permissions you have given us in your user profile.

Our legal basis for processing information

Under certain international laws (including GDPR), Ohbubble is required to notify you about the legal basis on which we process User Personal Information. Ohbubble processes User Personal Information on the following legal bases:

  • When you purchase a plan from Ohbubble, you provide your name and an email address. We require those data elements for you to enter into the Terms of Service agreement with us, and we process those elements on the basis of performing that contract. We also process your name and email address on other bases. Ohbubble does not collect or process a credit card number, but our third-party payment processor does.

  • If you decide to participate in a Ohbubble research project or survey, you may choose to provide User Personal Information or other personal information to us for limited purposes. We process this information on the basis of consent. All of this information is entirely optional (while you are not able to delete your email address, you can request from us to do).

  • Generally, the remainder of the processing of personal information we perform is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests. For example, for legal compliance purposes or to maintain ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of Ohbubble’s systems, website, and service, we must keep logs of Technical Information; and, in order to respond to legal process, we are required to keep records of users who have sent and received DMCA takedown notices.

  • If you would like to request erasure of data we process on the basis of consent or object to our processing of personal information, please us.

What information Ohbubble does not collect

We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although Ohbubble does not request or intentionally collect any sensitive personal information, we might request you to identify yourself to protect the integrity of our own data and the services we provide to you.

If you're a child under the age of 13, you’re not allowed to obtain any services from Ohbubble. Ohbubble does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will unfortunately have to terminate any service we provide to you including any data we may have stored about you. Please see our Terms of Service for information about account termination. Other countries may have different minimum age limits, and if you are below the minimum age for providing consent for data collection in your country, you may not use Ohbubble’s services without obtaining your parents' or legal guardians' consent.

We do not intentionally collect User Personal Information that is stored in your repositories or other free-form content inputs. Information in your repositories belongs to you, and you are responsible for it, as well as for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Any personal information within a user's repository is the responsibility of the repository owner.

Repository contents

  • Ohbubble employees do not access private repositories unless required to for security reasons, to assist the repository owner with a support matter, or to maintain the integrity of the service. Our Terms of Service provides more details.

How we share the information we collect

We do share User Personal Information with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested or communicate on your behalf. Additionally, you may indicate, through your actions on Ohbubble, that you are willing to share your User Personal Information. For example, if you join an organization, the owner of the organization will have the ability to view your activity in the organization's access log. We will respect your choices.

We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes, except where you have specifically told us to (such as by buying an integration from Marketplace).

We do not host advertising on Ohbubble. We may occasionally embed content from third party sites, such as YouTube, and that content may include ads. While we try to minimize the amount of ads our embedded content contains, we can't always control what third parties show. Any advertisements on individual Ohbbuble Pages or in Ohbubble’s repositories are not sponsored by, or tracked by, Ohbubble.

We do not disclose User Personal Information outside Ohbubble, except in the situations listed in this section or in the section below on Compelled Disclosure.

We do share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how our users, collectively, use Ohbubble, or how our users respond to our other offerings, such as our conferences or events. For example, we may compile statistics on the usage of open source licenses across Ohbubble. However, we do not sell this information to advertisers or marketers.

We do share User Personal Information with a limited number of third party vendors who process it on our behalf to provide or improve our service, and who have agreed to privacy restrictions similar to our own Privacy Statement by signing data protection agreements. Our vendors perform services such as payment processing, customer support ticketing, network data transmission, and other similar services. When we transfer your data to our vendors under EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, we remain responsible for it. While Ohbubble processes all User Personal Information in the United States, our third party vendors may process data outside of the United States or the European Union. If you would like to know who our third party vendors are, please see our page on Subprocessors.

We may share User Personal Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of User Personal Information, and we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your User Personal Information. The organization receiving any User Personal Information will have to honor any promises we have made in our Privacy Statement or in our Terms of Service.

Third party applications

  • You have the option of enabling or adding third party applications, known as “Additional Services,” to your account. These Additional Services are not necessary for your use of Ohbubble. We will share your User Personal Information to third parties when you ask us to, such as by purchasing Additional Services from the website; however, you are responsible for your use of the third party services and for the amount of User Personal Information you choose to share with it. 

  • Ohbubble Applications

  • You can also add applications from Ohbubble to your Service. These applications each have their own terms and may collect different kinds of User Personal Information; however, all Ohbubble applications are subject to this Privacy Statement, and we will always collect the minimum amount of User Personal Information necessary, and use it only for the purpose for which you have given it to us.

How you can access and control the information we collect

If you're already a customer, you may access, update, alter, or delete your basic user profile information by contacting our support team. You can control the information we collect about you by limiting what information you give to us or by requesting certain information to be removed from our database.

Data retention and deletion of data

  • Generally, Ohbubble will always retain User Personal Information for the sole purpose of building analytical data regarding purchases made to us or to verify the authenticity of any purchases made to us.

  • We may retain certain User Personal Information indefinitely, unless you delete it or request its deletion. For example, we don’t automatically delete inactive user accounts, so unless you choose to delete your account, we will retain your account information indefinitely.

  • If you would like to cancel your account or delete your User Personal Information, you may do so upon request from our support team. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, but barring legal requirements, we will delete your full profile (within reason) within 365 days. 

  • After an account has been deleted, certain data, such as purchase data or data provided by third party payments systems will remain. However, we will delete or de-identify your personal information, including your account information. The email address you have supplied to Ohbubble will always be associated with your purchase history.

Our use of cookies and tracking

  • Ohbubble uses cookies to make interactions with our service easy and meaningful. We use cookies (and similar technologies, like HTML5 localStorage) to keep you logged in, remember your preferences, and provide information for future development of Ohbubble. For security reasons, we use cookies to identify a device. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your computer or device. If you disable your browser or device’s ability to accept these cookies, you will not be able to log in or use Ohbubble’s services. On certain areas of the website, we may also use cookies to identify you and/or your device to advertise Ohbubble products and services to you on third party sites.

Tracking and analytics

  • We use a number of third party analytics and service providers to help us evaluate our users' use of Ohbubble; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance. We only use these third party analytics providers on certain areas of our website, and all of them have signed data protection agreements with us that limit the type of personal information they can collect and the purpose for which they can process the information. In addition, we use our own internal analytics software to provide features and improve our content and performance.

Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Ohbubble responds to browser DNT signals and follows the W3C standard for responding to DNT signals. If you have not enabled DNT on a browser that supports it, cookies on some parts of our website will track your online browsing activity on other online services over time, though we do not permit third parties other than our analytics and service providers to track Ohbubble users' activity over time on Ohbubble.

How Ohbubble secures your information

Ohbubble takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect User Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of User Personal Information.

Ohbubble enforces a written security information program. Our program:

  • aligns with industry recognized frameworks;

  • includes security safeguards reasonably designed to protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and resilience of our users' data;

  • is appropriate to the nature, size, and complexity of Ohbubble’s business operations;

  • includes incident response and data breach notification processes; and

  • complies with applicable information security related laws and regulations in the geographic regions where Ohbubble does business.

In the event of a data breach that affects your User Personal Information, we will act promptly to mitigate the impact of a breach and notify any affected users without undue delay.

Transmission of data on Ohbubble is encrypted using SSH, HTTPS, and SSL/TLS. While our data is not encrypted at rest, we manage our own cages and racks at top-tier data centers with excellent physical and network security, and when data is stored with a third party storage provider, it is encrypted.

No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Ohbubble’s global privacy practices

We store and process the information that we collect in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Statement (our subprocessors may store and process data outside the United States). However, we understand that we have users from different countries and regions with different privacy expectations, and we try to meet those needs even when the United States does not have the same privacy framework as other countries'.

We provide a high standard of privacy protection — as described in this Privacy Statement — to all our users around the world, regardless of their country of origin or location, and we are proud of the levels of notice, choice, accountability, security, data integrity, access, and recourse we provide. We work hard to comply with the applicable data privacy laws wherever we do business, working with our Data Protection Officer as part of a cross-functional team that oversees our privacy compliance efforts. Additionally, if our vendors or affiliates have access to User Personal Information, they must sign agreements that require them to comply with our privacy policies and with applicable data privacy laws.

In particular:

  • Ohbubble provides clear methods of unambiguous, informed consent at the time of data collection, when we do collect your personal information using consent as a basis.

  • We collect only the minimum amount of personal information necessary for our purposes, unless you choose to provide more. We encourage you to only give us the amount of data you are comfortable sharing.

  • We offer you simple methods of accessing, correcting, or deleting the User Personal Information we have collected.

  • We provide our users notice, choice, accountability, security, and access, and we limit the purpose for processing. We also provide our users a method of recourse and enforcement. These are the Privacy Shield Principles, but they are also just good practices.

How we respond to compelled disclosure

Ohbubble may disclose personally-identifying information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant, or similar government order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.

In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, Ohbubble strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify users of any disclosure of their information, unless we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in rare, exigent circumstances.

How we, and others, communicate with you

We will use your email address to communicate with you, if you've said that's okay, and only for the reasons you’ve said that’s okay. For example, if you contact our Support team with a request, we will respond to you via email. 

Ohbubble may occasionally send notification emails about changes new features, requests for feedback, important policy changes, or offer customer support. We also send marketing emails, based on your choices and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. There's an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each of the marketing emails we send you. Please note that you can not opt out of receiving important communications from us, such as emails from our Support team or system emails, but you can configure your notifications settings in your profile.

Our emails might contain a pixel tag, which is a small, clear image that can tell us whether or not you have opened an email and what your IP address is. We use this pixel tag to make our email more effective for you and to make sure we’re not sending you unwanted email.

Resolving complaints

If you have concerns about the way Ohbubble is handling your User Personal Information, please let us know immediately. We want to help. You can email us directly at priority@ohbubble.com with the subject line "Privacy Concerns." We will respond promptly — within 45 days at the latest.

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Ohbubble may change our Privacy Statement from time to time. We will provide notification to Users of material changes to this Privacy Statement through our Website at least 30 days prior to the change taking effect by posting a notice on our home page or sending email to the primary email address specified in your Ohbubble account.
