A. WHAT ARE APPLICATIONS AND WHAT ARE RELATED SERVICES?
Under the term Applications we understand all Applications that are downloadable either from online stores or from our web pages. This includes, but is not limited to, the Archer Editor, the Archer Runtime and all Software Applications that are accessible and installable. Services means primarily Cloud Services such as the Archer Cloud and other non downloadable Software functionality that enables you to process data of any kind.
B. WHAT INFORMATION IS OBTAINED BY THE APPLICATIONS OR RELATED SERVICES
You may be prompted by the Applications or Services to provide personal information such as email, name or address. The Applications or Services also collect browsing data and other publicly accessible information sent from your computer in standard communication protocols such as HTTP and HTTPS. Using the Applications and Services is in some areas similar to using a web browser where information is shared with Google Analytics, facebook, twitter or other commonly used social media networks. The Applications or Services may access content on other web pages for display on your computer and potentially all access information is stored for the down or uploaded contents. An example is the Archer Editor where tutorial projects are displayed in the start window. In this case analytics data is stored when the Archer Editor is opened and you are connected to the internet, here the number of downloads is counted. Another example is the Archer Cloud where you must provide an email to log in. This email address is stored on our servers to handle the log-in process.
C. PROJECT DATA GENERATED BY YOU
Project data that you create such as drawings, configuration files, or other content that is storable as a file, is either saved locally on your computer or on another computer in the cloud. When you work with the Archer Editor the project files are stored locally on your computer. When you share the project via the Archer Cloud, then it is stored in the Cloud on our or third party servers (eg. Amazon Cloud). The Archer Host allows you to share project data publicly, restrict sharing only for defined users or no sharing at all with access for your user account only. Publicly shared projects may be downloaded or further processed by us or other users. Meta tags like ratings or favourite settings may be added to your public project by other users. By making a project publicly available you grant the rights as selected during the sharing process. Please note: we do our best in keeping your own Cloud projects secret, however be aware that you shall not upload projects where you do not have the rights (eg. customer project data) and we cannot be held liable when personal projects are made available through technical defects, this means you upload your project data at your own risk. If you choose in the Applications or Services to share your project data with a third party platform, please note that you are agreeing to that platform’s use of your content and information consistent with its relevant privacy and other policies. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party platform.
D. SHARING AND PROCESSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will not share your personal information without your consent or unless required by law. We only processes personal information for the purpose of providing, improving and ensuring the delivery new features and services to users. We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, for example statistics about Archer projects and the number of sites using Archer. Such information does not identify you individually. We restrict access to personal information to employees, contractors, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop, or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
