What information Taas collects and why
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, and a photograph are examples of “User Personal Information.” User Personal Information includes Personal Data as defined in the Russian Federal Law N152 of or 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
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.
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 Taas service or to respond to support requests.
- We use your User Personal Information, specifically your user name, to identify you in Taas.
- We will use your Telegram user name to communicate with you, if you've said that's okay, and only for the reasons you’ve said that’s okay.
- We collect Technical Information to better understand how our website visitors use Taas, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
- 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.
Our legal basis for processing information
Under certain international laws (including GDPR), Taas is required to notify you about the legal basis on which we process User Personal Information. Taas processes User Personal Information on the following legal bases:
When you create a Taas account, you provide your user 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 user name and email address on other bases.
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 contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What information Taas does not collect
We do not intentionally collect User Personal Information that is available through your authorized Telegram client. Taas considers your private Telegram data to be confidential to you. Taas will protect the contents of private repositories from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that we would use to protect our own confidential information of a similar nature and in no event with less than a reasonable degree of care.
Taas employees do not access personal Telegram data unless required to assist the repository owner with a support matter, or to maintain the integrity of the service.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
