Thank you for using 1Flow!
1Flow is a US company and our data infrastructure is based in Germany covered by the EU’s strong data privacy laws. Processing and storing data in a secure, fair, and transparent way is extremely important to us.
This Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”) is an addendum to the Terms of Service between 1Flow and the customer.
If you are accepting this DPA on behalf of your customer, you warrant that: (a) you have full legal authority to bind your customer to this DPA; (b) you have read and understand this DPA; and (c) you agree, on behalf of your customer, to this DPA.
These service terms incorporate the 1Flow Data Processing Agreement” (“DPA”), when the General Data Protection regulation (“GDPR”) applies to your use of 1Flow services to process visitor data as defined in the DPA. We protect and secure your visitor data to the high standards set out in the agreement.
- “You” or “customer” refers to the company or organization that signs up to use the 1Flow to analyze website and mobile app users.
- In the course of providing the 1Flow service to customer pursuant to the agreement, 1Flow may process visitor data on behalf of customer.
- In this Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”), “Data Protection Legislation” means the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/279), and all other applicable laws relating to processing of visitor data and privacy that may exist in any relevant jurisdiction.
- “data controller”, “data processor”, “data subject”, “personal data” and “processing” shall be interpreted in accordance with applicable Data Protection Legislation.
- The parties agree that the customer is the data controller and that 1Flow is its data processor in relation to visitor data that is processed in the course of providing the service.
Privacy and security of your visitor data
We take many measures to protect and secure your data through backups, redundancies, and encryption. When you use our service to measure your website stats, 1Flow will collect information about your visitors.
You entrust us with your site data and we take that trust to heart. You agree that 1Flow may process your data as described in our data policy and for no other purpose. We do our best to deserve that trust by being open about who we are, how we work, and keeping an open door to your feedback.
You own all right, title, and interest to your user data. We obtain no rights from you to your website data. We do not collect and analyze personal information from web users and use these behavioral insights to sell advertisements. When using 1Flow, you 100% own and control all of your website data. We don’t sell or share your site data to any third-parties, and we don’t abuse your visitor’s privacy.
Even though the purpose of 1Flow is to track the usage of a website, this can still be done without tracking, collecting or storing any personal data or personally identifiable information (PII), without using cookies and while respecting the privacy of your website visitors.
By using 1Flow, all the site measurement is carried out absolutely anonymously. Cookies are not set and no personal data is collected. We do not generate any persistent device identifiers. We never store IP addresses in our database or logs. The data we process cannot be used to identify any single individual.
We minimize data collection in general. We measure only the most essential data points and nothing else. All the metrics we do collect fit on one single page.
All of the data that we do track is kept fully secured, encrypted and hosted on renewable energy powered server in Germany. This ensures that all of the website data is being covered by the European Union’s strict laws on data privacy. Your visitor data never leaves the EU.
1Flow is fully open source software which means that our source code is available and accessible on GitHub so anyone can check it out and audit it. You can read it, inspect it and review it to understand how it works and to ensure it keeps the data private and secure. This gives you and everyone else full transparency on how we handle the website traffic data. It is this transparency and openness that means that open source products can be more trustworthy than proprietary and closed source products.
The group of data subjects affected by the processing of their data under this agreement includes end-users of the controller’s websites which make use of the service provided by the processor.
