By using this web site, you accept the privacy practices contained in this Privacy Policy. 

Our Privacy Policy describes: 

  • what type of information we collect                         
  • how we use such information
  • your rights to your information
  • how we protect your information
  • our commitment to compliance for customers 

These privacy practices may change from time to time, and we will endeavor to notify you of any material changes via your scanii.com dashboard and/or email. You are encouraged to review our Privacy Policy frequently to make sure you understand how any personal information you provide will be used. 

Information We Collect and Why

In simple terms, the only personal data we truly capture is the minimum required to operate our administrative website.

Identity & Access

When you sign up for our product (scanii.com), the only personally identifying information we collect and maintain is your name, email address, company name, and the IP address used to register for our services. 

We will only use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • to deliver the products and/or services to you that you have requested 
  • to validate your compliance with our terms and conditions
  • for content improvement and feedback purposes
  • to reach you, when necessary, regarding your use of the web site or product(s). 

By submitting your email address on this website, you agree to receive email from us. You may cancel your participation in any of these email lists at any time by clicking the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option that is included in the respective email. We only send emails to people who have authorized us to contact them and never send unsolicited commercial emails, because we hate spam as much as you do. 

Billing Information

When you pay for our product, we ask for your credit card and billing address.  This information is only used to charge for the services used, calculate taxes, and send you invoices.  We do not collect any credit card information, instead we use Stripe’s payment processing system to help ensure your transactions are safe and PCI compliant.  

Voluntary Correspondence

When you reach out to us with a question or to ask for support, we keep that correspondence, including the email address, so that we have a historical record of past correspondences to reference if necessary.

Cookies

We do use persistent first-party cookies to store certain preferences, make it easier for you to use our applications and support some in-house analytics.  These settings can be adjusted within your own browser at any time.

Information we DO NOT Collect

We do not collect any characteristics of protected classifications including age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or physical and mental abilities or disabilities.  

Accessing or Sharing Your Information

In general, our practice is to not access your information and we will never sell your information to third parties.  In fact, the only times we would ever access or share your info are:

  • To deliver the products and/or services that you, our customer, have requested.  We have entered into DPAs with all third party sub-processors that support the delivery of our products and services, therefore this same personal data (email, name, company name) may also be shared with our public list of subprocessors.
  • To assist you in troubleshooting or to fix a software bug when you reach out to us for support.
  • To investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities.
  • In response to lawful requests by public authorities, for law enforcement or national security reasons, or when such action is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding to court order, or when otherwise required by law.
  • If Uva Software were acquired by or merged with another company.  

Your Rights to Your Information

We apply the same data rights to all customers, regardless of their location.  Uva Software recognizes the rights granted under some of the most privacy-forward regulations in effect at this time including the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). These rights include:

Right to know: This is your right to know what personal information is collected, used, shared or sold.  We have outlined the types of data we collect, as well as how they are used in this privacy policy.

Right to access: This is your right to access the personal information collected, stored, processed and shared about you.  We give customers full access to view their personal data at any time by logging into their account.

Right to rectification: This is your right to request changes to your personal data.  We give customers full access to make changes to their personal data at any time via a self-service privacy control center.  Click here to make any changes to your personal data.

Right to be forgotten:  This is your right to erase or redact all personal data maintained on our site. Click here to exercise your right to be forgotten from our system via a self-service privacy control center. 

Right to withdraw consent: This is your right to  withdraw a previously given consent for processing of your personal data. Upon request, we would stop the processing of your personal data.

Right to object: This is your right, under certain circumstances, to object to how or why your personal information is processed.

Right to Non-Discrimination: This right stems from the CCPA. We do not and will not charge you a different amount to use our products, offer you different discounts, or give you a lower level of customer service because you have exercised your data privacy rights. However, exercising certain rights may prevent you from using our services.

Many of these rights can be exercised by signing into your scanii.com account and updating your user preferences. 

If you need further assistance regarding your rights, please contact us using the contact information provided below and we will consider your request in accordance with applicable law. In some cases our ability to uphold these rights for you may depend upon our obligations to process personal information for security, safety, fraud prevention reasons, compliance with regulatory or legal requirements, or because processing is necessary to deliver the services you have requested. Where this is the case, we will inform you of specific details in response to your request.

Securing Your Data

To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, logical, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

We do everything we can to protect user information offline. Unfortunately, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable measures to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of the information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. 

The files that are analyzed by scanii.com are not permanently stored in our systems. We maintain no information about the files we scan outside of the file signature, type, and size. These elements will never contain any information that could identify you or your customers.If you ever have an access problem we will protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making related changes.

Processors We Use

Transferring Personal Data From the EU

The General Data Protection Regulation requires that any data transferred out of the EU must be treated with the same level of protection that the EU privacy laws grant. Since GDPR went into effect, we offered a standard Data Processing Addendum (DPA) and self-certified to both the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework.

Our Data Processing Addendum is now incorporated into our Terms of Service and includes the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) to extend GDPR privacy principles, rights, and obligations everywhere personal data is processed. An executable copy of the Data Processing Addendum, is available for you to sign online.

Privacy Shield Policy

We have certified to the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles detailed below with respect to such information.  If there is any conflict between the terms of this privacy policy and data subject rights under the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the Privacy Shield program, and view our certification, please visit https://www.privacyshield.gov.

Uva Software is subject to the investigatory and enforcement jurisdiction of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with regard to the Privacy Shield Framework.

Privacy Shield Principles

The Privacy Shield Framework uphold specific principles, many of which have been described in the section of this policy titled Your Rights to Your Information.  To further clarify, Uva Software commits to uphold the following principles for all EU, UK, and Swiss personal data transferred into the United States. 

Individuals have the right to access their personal data and to update, correct, and/or amend information that is incomplete. Individuals also have the right to request erasure of personal information that has been processed in violation of the principles. Individuals may exercise these rights by signing in and directly updating their account information.
