Date of Last Revision: August 22nd, 2018

This Privacy Policy sets forth Spext’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from visitors to the Site and Services.

Identity and contact information of the Data Controller:

We are the data controller and this means that we determine the purposes for, and ways in which, we collect and use personal information. Spext Inc. is incorporated in Delaware, USA and has offices in California and India.

Information We Collect:

When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Services:

We collect Personal Data from you only when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you sign up, contact us with support or use certain services. Wherever Spext collects Personal Data we make an effort to provide a link to this Privacy Policy.

In addition, we may have access to your Personal Data if such data is included in any audio files you send us for transcription services. We only use such Personal Data solely to provide the automatic transcription services to you and to improve our algorithms. Without your authorization, we never sell, lease, or otherwise provide access to such Personal Data to our employees, contractors, agents or other third parties. At no point during the upload and transcription process, do employees, or third parties have access or authorization to view the files.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Spext and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Other Information:

Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with spext through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Spext may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Spext affiliates, agents or service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.

In operating the Services, we may use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that helps provide additional functionality to the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately. For example, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Services without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Service features.

In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section how to turn cookies off if you so desire.

Aggregated Personal Data:

Spext often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us to service users better. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and Spext may share this aggregate data with its affiliates and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. Spext may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:

Spext uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. If you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to the Services, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to such services and to monitor your use of such services. spext and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Related Companies”) may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Services to help us improve the content and functionality of the Services, to better understand our users and to improve the Services. Spext and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services that may be of interest to you.

If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future marketing communications. If at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.

Where we store your personal information and how we keep it safe:

The personal data that we collect from you will be transferred to and stored at a destination outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). We use best-in-class third party service providers to store data.

Below are some of the methods we use to keep your data safe:

Data encryption:

We encrypt all data that goes between you and Spext using field-standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). Your data is encrypted when transferred between data centers for backup and replication.

Secure data centers:

Spext’s servers are located within enterprise-grade hosting facilities that have robust physical security controls to prevent physical access. These controls include 24/7/365 monitoring and surveillance, on-site security staff and regular ongoing security audits. Security monitoring: Security teams continuously monitor security systems, event logs, notifications and alerts from all systems to identify and manage threats.

Consultants and Related Third Parties:

Spext sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. If and when we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
