Privacy Policy

SmartUp understands that you care about how information about you is used. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect information relating to individuals and all other types of information through our website and online services (the “Site”); how we maintain, use, and share that information; and how you can manage the way information about you is handled.

From What Sources Does SmartUp Collect Personal Information?

The only data about individuals that SmartUp collects directly is the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the device used by the individual to access the SmartUp platform and any information you choose to provide us, including on completed forms. The IP address is a number assigned to you by your Internet service provider, so you can access the Internet. SmartUp may obtain additional information about you from third parties who have represented to SmartUp that they have obtained it in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations and have the legal right to provide it to SmartUp. We also collect information using cookies, as described below.  Collectively, this information is referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Personal Information.”

How Does SmartUp Use Information?

SmartUp may aggregate collected information about our users in a form that does not allow users to be personally identified for the purpose of understanding our customer base and enhancing the services that we and our strategic partners and customers can provide you.

SmartUp will use Personal Information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual to whom the information pertains. Specifically, we may use Personal Information and platform-use information to allow users easier and more efficient use of SmartUp and to understand how users use SmartUp’s platform in order to improve our user interface and detect problems and bugs.

To Whom May SmartUp Share Information?

  • Service Providers, Partners, and Customers: SmartUp may, from time to time, disclose Personal Information or other collected information to service providers and partners providing functions related to our operation of the Site and for their business related to SmartUp activities that may be of interest to users of the SmartUp platform.
  • Legal Reasons: We may disclose collected information, including Personal Information, to a third party, if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or desirable: (i) to comply with lawful requests, subpoenas, search warrants, or orders by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements; (ii) to address a violation of the law; (iii) to protect the rights, property or safety of SmartUp, its users or the public; or (iv) to allow SmartUp to exercise its legal rights or respond to a legal claim.
  • Buyer of the Company: If our company or substantially all of our assets are acquired, or in the event of a merger or bankruptcy, information about you and/or information you provide to SmartUp may be among the transferred assets. You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information. SmartUp will only consent to a review of its records in the context of a potential acquisition or merger if an appropriate confidentiality agreement is in place.

How Can You Change or Delete Your Personal Information?

At any time, upon written request to SmartUp at [email protected] or at the postal address at the bottom of this form, you can obtain a copy of all Personal Information that SmartUp may have in its database about you, correct that information, and direct SmartUp to delete it or not to use or transfer it to third parties.

Data Retention

SmartUp will retain your Personal Information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes, and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

We will also retain usage data for internal analysis purposes. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our services, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer periods.

How Do We Keep Your Information Secure?

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of Internet transmission or electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially standard means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Your interactions with each such feature are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

Transfers of Data

Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ from those of your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside Israel and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Information, to Israel and principally process it there, as well as in other jurisdictions where we may operate.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy, followed by your submission of such Personal Information, represents your agreement to the transfers described in this Policy.

If you are located in the EEA, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, your Personal Information may be transferred to – and maintained on – our computers located outside of the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom or to other recipients located in countries outside of the EEA, Switzerland and the United Kingdom which may not have data privacy laws equivalent to those in the country in which you are located. By submitting your Personal Information to us, you consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to us and the other recipients described in this Privacy Policy that are located in countries outside of the country in which you are located. You may withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal, nor the lawfulness of processing based on other legal bases.

Information For Individuals in Europe

If you are located in Europe when you access our Site, you understand that we intend to collect, process, and store your personal information in Israel, which has been determined by the European Commission to have sufficiently rigorous data protection laws as to allow for transfers of personal data between the European Economic Area (“EEA”), Switzerland or the United Kingdom and Israel pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Any transfers by us will comply with safeguards as required by relevant law.

If you are a resident of the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, the following information applies.

  • Purposes of processing and legal basis for processing: SmartUp processes personal data on the following legal bases: (1) with your consent; (2) as necessary to perform our agreement to provide services to you; and (3) as necessary for our legitimate interests in providing the Site where those interests do not override your fundamental rights and freedom related to data privacy. The very limited scope of Personal Information collected by SmartUp is within the company’s legitimate interests to operate the Site and provide services to the data subject, given the limited impact of this data on the individual’s private life. SmartUp has put in place safeguards to protect personal privacy and individual choice, including disclosures of its data processing activities, the use of consent or opt-outs wherever possible, and the ready public availability of this Privacy Policy at: SmartUpAcademy.org/privacy.
  • Right to lodge a complaint: Users that reside in the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom have the right to lodge a complaint about our data collection and processing actions with the supervisory authority concerned. Contact details for data protection authorities are available here.
  • Transfers: Personal information we collect may be transferred to, and stored and processed in, countries in which we or our affiliates or subcontractors maintain facilities. SmartUp ensures that transfers of personal information to a third country or an international organization are subject to appropriate safeguards as described in Article 46 of the GDPR.

 

Individual Rights: If you are a resident of the EEA, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom, you are entitled to the following rights.  Please note that in order to verify your identity, we may require you to provide us with personal information prior to accessing any records containing information about you.

  • The right to access and correct. You have the right to request access to and a copy of your personal data at no charge, as well as certain information about our processing activities with respect to your data. You have the right to request correction or completion of your personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete. You have the right to restrict our processing if you contest the accuracy of the data we hold about you for as long as it takes to verify its accuracy.
  • The right to request data erasure. You have the right to have your data erased from our Site if the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected, you withdraw consent, and no other legal basis for processing exists, or you believe your fundamental rights to data privacy and protection outweigh our legitimate interest in continuing the processing.
  • The right to object to our processing. You have the right to object to our processing if we are processing your data based on legitimate interests or the performance of a task in the public interest as an exercise of official authority (including profiling); using your data for direct marketing (including profiling); or processing your data for purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.
