Founderify Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use and share your personal information for our own purposes. Be sure to read it carefully. It is really important that you comply with data protection laws when using the services, such as when you collect others’ personal information or use cookies or similar technologies (including those we drop for you at your request, such as for web analytics).

By using the Services, you confirm that you have read, understood and agreed to the Terms of Service and this Privacy Policy. However, it is not a contractual document and we may change it from time to time.

  1. Some key terms

    In our Privacy Policy, when we refer to “Users”, we mean our customers who use our Services, including visitors to our sites. We explain who we are in the “Who is Founderify?” section below. The users, visitors and customers of, our Users’ sites are “End Users”. Any other capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meanings in our Terms of Service.

  2. How does this Privacy Policy apply?

    This Privacy Policy describes what we do with personal information that we collect and use for our own purposes (i.e., where we are a controller), such as your account information and information about how you use and interact with our Services, including information you submit to our customer support as well as certain information relating to your End Users. This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information of our employees or job applicants (except to the extent when employees or job applicants are Users).

    We use cookies and similar technologies. Our Cookie Policy describes what we do in that regard.

    We also host and process User Content on behalf of our Users. Our Users tell us what to do with User Content, and we follow their instructions. This Privacy Policy does not describe what we do with User Content on our Users’ instructions (i.e., as their service provider). If you are an End User of one of our User’s sites and want to know how a User handles your information, you should check the site's privacy policy, if applicable. If you want to know about what we do for our own purposes, read on.

  3. Personal information we collect

    We collect various personal information regarding you or your device. This includes the following:

    Information you provide to create an Account, specifically email address, first name and last name. When you sign up for Paid Services, we receive a portion of your payment information from our payment processor (such as the last four digits, the country of issuance and the expiration date of the payment card) and we ask you to select your jurisdiction.

    Your marketing preferences.

    The emails and other communications that you send us or otherwise contribute, such as customer support inquiries.

    Information you share with us in connection with surveys.

    Information from your use of the Services or Users’ sites. This may include: IP addresses, preferences, web pages you visited prior to coming to our or our Users’ sites, information about your browser, network or device (such as browser type and version, operating system, internet service provider, preference settings, unique device IDs and language and other regional settings), information about how you interact with the Services and our Users’ sites (such as timestamps, clicks, scrolling, browsing times, searches, transactions, referral pages, load times, and problems you may encounter, such as loading errors).

    Information we get from our partners to support our marketing initiatives, improve our Services and better monitor, manage and measure our ad campaigns, such as details about when a partner of ours shows you one of our ads on or via its advertising platform.

    Other information you submit to us directly or through Third Party Services if you use a Third Party Service to create an Account (based on your privacy settings with such Third Party Service).

  4. How we collect personal information

    You provide some of it directly (such as by registering for an Account).

    We record some of it automatically when you use our Services or Users’ sites (including with technologies like cookies).

    We receive some of it from third parties (like when you register for an account using a Third Party Service or when you make payments to us using our payment processor or via a mobile app store).

    Some of this information is collected automatically using cookies and similar technologies when you use our Services and our Users’ sites. We let our Users control what cookies and similar technologies are used through their sites (except those we need to use to properly provide the Services, such as for performance or security related reasons). You can read more about our use of cookies in our Cookie Policy. Some of this information is similarly collected automatically through your browser or from your device.

  5. Personal information obtained from other sources

    If you use a Third Party Service (such as Google) to register for an Account, the Third Party Service may provide us with your Third Party Service account information on your behalf, such as your name and email address (we don’t collect or store passwords you use to access Third Party Services). Your privacy settings on the Third Party Service normally control what they share with us. Make sure you are comfortable with what they share by reviewing their privacy policies and, if necessary, modifying your privacy settings directly on the Third Party Service.

    If you sign up for Paid Services directly with us, we obtain limited information about your payment card from our payment processor, such as the last four digits, the country of issuance and the expiration date. Currently, our payment processor is Stripe. Stripe uses and processes your complete payment information in accordance with Stripe’s privacy policy.

  6. How we use your personal information

    For provision of the Services. To create and manage your Account, provide and personalize our Services, process payments and respond to your inquiries.

    For communicating with you. Communicate with you, including by sending you emails about your transactions and Service-related announcements.

    For surveys. To administer surveys.

    For advertising. To analyze your interactions with our Services and third parties’ online services so we can tailor our advertising to what we think will interest you. For example, we may decide not to advertise our Services to you on a social media site if you already signed up for Paid Services or we may choose to serve you a particular advertisement based on your subscription or what we think may interest you based on other information we hold about you.

    For customizing the Services. To provide you with customized services. For example, we use your location information to determine your language preferences or display accurate date and time information. We also use cookies and similar technologies for this purpose, such as remembering which of Your Sites you most recently edited.

    For improving our Services. To analyze and learn about how the Services are accessed and used, evaluate and improve our Services (including by developing new products and services and managing our communications) and monitor and measure the effectiveness of our advertising. We usually do this based on anonymous, pseudonymized or aggregated information which does not focus on you individually. For example, if we learn that most Users of Paid Services use a particular integration or feature, we might wish to expand on that integration or feature.

    For security. To ensure the security and integrity of our Services.

    For enforcement. To enforce our Terms of Service and other legal terms and policies.

    For protection. To protect our and others’ interests, rights and property (e.g., to protect our Users from abuse).

    For complying with law. To comply with applicable legal requirements, such as law enforcement requests.

  7. We process your personal information for the above purposes when:

    You have consented to the use of your personal information in a particular way. When you consent, you can change your mind at any time.

    We need your personal information to provide you with services and products requested by you, or to respond to your inquiries. In other words, so we can perform our contract with you or take steps at your request before entering into one. For example, we need your email address so you can sign in to your Founderify account.

    We have a legal obligation to use your personal information, such as to comply with applicable tax and other government regulations or to comply with a court order or binding law enforcement request.

    We have a legitimate interest in using your personal information. In particular, to operate Founderify and provide you with tailored advertising and communications, to analyze and improve the safety and security of our Services against fraud, spam and abuse, and finally to anonymize and subsequently use anonymized information.

  8. Your rights and choices

    Where applicable law requires (and subject to any relevant exceptions under law), you may have the right to access, update, change or delete personal information.

    You can access, update, change or delete personal information (or that of your End Users) either directly in your Account or by contacting us at [email protected] to request the required changes. You can exercise your other rights (including deleting your Account) by contacting us via your Account at the same email address. Please note that we may need to verify your identity in connection with your requests, and such verification process may, if you do not have access to your Account, require you to provide us with additional information (e.g. government identification). Even if you have access to your Account, we may request additional information if we believe it’s necessary to verify your identity. If we are unable to verify your identity or request, we may not, in accordance with applicable law, be able to fulfill your request.

    You can also elect not to receive marketing communications by changing your preferences in your Account or by following the unsubscribe instructions in such communications.

  9. How we protect your personal information

    While no service is completely secure, we have a security team dedicated to keeping personal information safe. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing, of the personal information in our possession. We employ security measures such as using firewalls to protect against intruders.

  10. How we retain your personal information

    We retain personal information regarding you or your use of the Services for as long as your Account is active or for as long as needed to provide you or our Users with the Services. We also retain personal information for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, for example, to comply with our legal obligations, to protect us in the event of disputes and to enforce our agreements and to protect our and others’ interests.

    The precise periods for which we keep your personal information vary depending on the nature of the information and why we need it. Factors we consider in determining these periods include the minimum required retention period prescribed by law or recommended as best practice, the period during which a claim can be made with respect to an agreement or other matter, whether the personal information has been aggregated or pseudonymized, and other relevant criteria. For example, the period we keep your email address is connected to how long your Account is active, while the period for which we keep a support message is based on how long has passed since the last submission in the thread.

    Also, as Users may come back to us after an Account becomes inactive, we don’t immediately delete your personal information when you cancel all Services. Instead, we keep your personal information for a reasonable period of time, so it will be there for you if you decide to come back.

    You may delete your Account by contacting us at [email protected] and we will delete the personal information we holds about you (unless we need to retain it for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy).

  11. End Users's personal information

    Our customers who have created a site using our Services are responsible for what they do with the personal information they collect, directly or through third party affiliates, about their End Users. This Section is directed to such customers.

    Your relationship with End Users

    If you’re one of our Users, you will collect personal information about your End Users. For example, during checkout you may ask your End Users to provide their name, address, email address and payment information so that you can complete their orders. You may also use cookies and similar technologies to analyze usage and other trends.

    You're solely responsible for complying with any laws and regulations that apply to your collection and use of your End Users’ information, including personal information you collect about them from us or using your Sites functionality or cookies or similar technologies.

    You must publish your own privacy and cookie policies and comply with them.

    We’re not liable for your relationship with your End Users or how you collect and use personal information about them (even if you collect it from us or using your Sites functionality or cookies or similar technologies) and we won’t provide you with any legal advice regarding such matters.

    End Users payment information

    Your End Users payment information may be processed via third party eCommerce Payment Processors with which you integrate your Account, in accordance with such eCommerce Payment Processors’ terms and policies. Your Site will transmit your End Users’ complete payment information when they initially provide or update it only so that we can pass it along to the eCommerce Payment Processors you agree to use. We don’t collect or store your End Users’ payment information.

  12. Updates to this Privacy Policy

    We’ll update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes in technology, law, our business operations or any other reason we determine is necessary or appropriate. When we make changes, we’ll update the “Effective Date” at the top of the Privacy Policy and post it on our site. If we make material changes to it or the ways we process personal information, we’ll notify you (by, for example, prominently posting a notice of the changes on our site before they take effect or directly sending you a notification).

    We encourage you to check back periodically to review this Privacy Policy for any changes since your last visit. This will help ensure you better understand your relationship with us, including the ways we process your personal information.

  13. Who is Founderify?
