GDPR Compliance

Updated 02/05/2023

At Bounce Watch, we prioritize safeguarding the privacy and personal information of our users. The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to protect the data privacy of EU citizens and provides a framework for processing personal information. We are fully committed to complying with the GDPR's requirements and have made adjustments to our products, services, and policies accordingly.

As a global product, we may not differentiate between other geographies and the EU, and we believe our customers will appreciate our uniformity in adhering to compliance across the board.

1) Personal Information

If you need to contact us regarding any matter related to your personal information, please email us at [[email protected]], and we will ensure that your requests and preferences are honored in accordance with the GDPR.

The personal information we process is primarily due to your association with companies in our research scope. If you are a founder, investor, board member, or key person in any of these companies or the startup ecosystem in general, your information is a crucial aspect of your company's profile. We process your publicly available information accordingly.

We process information on a lawful basis and only when there is a legitimate interest in doing so, without compromising your rights or interests. If required by applicable law, we will disclose your information.

As long as your association with a company is meaningful and relevant, your information may be stored and made available to our subscribers or potential subscribers. It's important to note that we do not serve advertisements to our customers, nor do we generate any advertisement revenue directly or indirectly.

2) Your Rights under GDPR

We have outlined the rights available to you under GDPR for your convenience:

Right to Access: You can request a copy of your personal information held by [Bounce Watch] without charge, and we will provide you with the relevant details and information.

Right to Amend/Correct: If you wish to update or change any incorrect information, please let us know. We may update, append, or remove such information as we deem appropriate.

Right to Erasure or Restriction of Processing: If you want us to delete your personal information or stop processing it because the information (i) is incorrect, (ii) is not lawfully processed, or (iii) is no longer required by us, please let us know. We will delete or stop processing your personal information as per your request.

Data Portability: If needed, we will provide your personal information in a commonly used, machine-readable format.

Notification in Case of Breach: If we suffer a data breach that may put your personal information at risk, despite our best efforts, we will notify you and the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.

We gather information from various publicly available sources worldwide, and there may be instances where information requested for removal is unintentionally recaptured. If this occurs, please notify us so that we can take appropriate action.

By making adjustments to our product, services, and policies, we continue to monitor industry best practices and incorporate them as needed. This commitment ensures our ongoing compliance with the GDPR.
