Where do we store data?
We host our website using the platform Wix. Wix.com is an international web services provider. You can use it for creating and managing websites and related services like hosting contact forms, processing the contact forms and storing the information. The company is based in Israel. According to the European Commission, Wix provides adequate security and protection for personal data of European Union citizens. According to the information given on the Wix website, Wix.com stores its data in data centers in Europe, the USA and Israel.
We are using newsletter management services including Wix Ascend. Hence, when you subscribe to our newsletter, your email address (and other details that you submit) will also be stored on one of their servers (or wherever they store multiple copies of the server data). Your information will be stored as long as you don't unsubscribe.
We also maintain a copy of all the email addresses off-line so that in case we want to switch any service, we are not stuck. We store our information in the Google Cloud.
As per their declared policies, Wix, and other service providers mentioned here, do not have the right to use the data that they have stored in their systems to market themselves or to make the data available to other parties. This is a binding legal agreement between them and their users. Neither are they allowed to combine or link the data with information they aquired otherwise on you.
How long do we keep your data?
As long as we are communicating with your consent. If you have submitted your email ID and your name so that we can regularly send you our newsletter including marketing messages and blog post updates, your data is retained unless you explicitly inform us that you don't want to hear from us. Anyway, whenever you receive an update from us, there is an option in every message to unsubscribe. You just need to click the link and you can unsubscribe yourself without anyone's involvement.
