1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy establishes the conditions for the processing of personal data when you use our services (“User”) by Mailtrack, as well as the conditions for the processing of personal data by Mailtrackon behalf of the Users (“Recipient”).

Mailtrack will process personal data in accordance with European Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“GDPR”), Organic Law 3/2018 of 5 December on the Protection of Personal Data and the Guarantee of Digital Rights (“LOPD”) and other applicable data protection laws.

We recommend that before using our services, you read this Privacy Policy carefully.

2. Processing of Users’ Personal Data by Mailtrack (as Data Controller)

2.1. This Section explains the processing of Users’ personal data by Mailtrack as controller, i.e. when Mailtrack decides on the purposes and means to carry out the processing of personal data.This only occurs with respect to the User’s data used by Mailtrack for the purpose of providing the Service (maintenance of your account, billing...).This does not include communications sent by the User through the Service and related data, which will only be processed in accordance with the Third Section.

Mailtrack will process your personal data in your capacity as controller to provide you with the Service, as well as to manage and improve it, including sending communications regarding the Service or with information about the Service.

2.2. For the provision of the Service, Mailtrack may process the following personal data of Users, such as:

  • name;
  • e-mail address;
  • language preferences;
  • current location for correct price/currency display;
  • payment data;
  • other personal data provided by the User in the context of the provision of the Service.

2.3. The personal data indicated above may be used by Mailtrack for the following purposes:

  • develop commercial actions and carry out the maintenance and management of their contractual relationship;
  • manage and improve the Service;
  • respond to your requests, suggestions or complaints made by you concerning the Service;
  • send him the information he has requested from us;
  • comply with the rules applicable in each case; and,
  • to respond to requests or requests from public authorities.

2.4. The legal basis for the processing of Users’ personal data is the contractual relationship between the User and Mailtrack for the provision of the Service, as well as Mailtrack’s legitimate interest in informing registered Users about the Service, unless the Users inform Mailtrack who do not wish to receive commercial communications.

2.5. Duration of processing: The personal data of the Users will be processed by Mailtrack during the contractual relationship and, subsequently, during the legal period required by the applicable regulations depending on the case.

2.6. The processors of Mailtrack, that is, our service providers, may have access to your personal data when necessary and for the purpose of managing the provision of the Service. To ensure that personal data receive an adequate level of protection, Mailtrack will enter into agreements with third parties with whom it shares personal data, to ensure that your personal data is processed by those third parties in a consistent and respectful manner with data protection regulations.

2.7. In general, the User’s personal data shall be stored in the European Economic Area (i.e. the Member States of the European Union, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein or ‘EEA’). However, Mailtrack may share personal data with service providers located outside the EEA, in which case it will ensure that the personal data is stored and transferred securely.These transfers would be made, depending on the case, on one of the following bases:

  • by means of a data transfer agreement incorporating existing standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to processors and processors in jurisdictions that do not have adequate data protection legislation; or
  • transfer your data to a country where the European Commission has found its adequacy with respect to the data protection levels of that country through its legislation; or
  • where necessary for the conclusion or execution of a contract between the undertaking, you and a third party and the transfer is in your interest for the purposes of that contract (e.g. if we need to transfer your data to a service provider based outside the EEA); or
  • when the User has consented to the transfer of data.

However, it is important to bear in mind that when personal data is stored in a third country, it is possible for the authorities of those countries to access their personal data in compliance with the domestic regulations of that country.

2.8. The User may exercise at any time his or her rights of access, rectification, cancellation and opposition of data processing and portability as provided for in the GDPR and the LOPD, by contacting Mailtrack at the following address: Calle Corcega, nº 301, Attic 2ª, 08008, Barcelona (Spain) or, by sending an email to privacy@mailtrack.io.

The User may also seek the assistance of the Spanish Data Protection Agency at www.agpd.es.

If at any time the User wishes to stop receiving commercial communications from Mailtrack, he or she may request it by sending an email to privacy@mailtrack.io.

3. Processing of personal data of Recipients on behalf of the Users by Mailtrack (as Data Processor)

3.1. This section details the processing of personal data by Mailtrack on behalf and following the Users’ instructions as processor, that is, when the purposes and means for the processing of personal data are decided by the User and Mailtrack only accesses the data at the User’s request and to provide the Service. Mailtrack does not act as responsible for the processing of the Recipient’s data.

3.2. The provision of the Service in favour of the User may imply the access and processing by Mailtrack of personal data of the Recipient, for the purposes established by the User. Mailtrack will have access to the following data:

  • Information needed to identify emails sent through the Service::
    • address;
    • purpose of e-mail;
    • content of the message, only when necessary to provide the Service and as described below;
    • date and time at which the e-mail was sent; and,
    • file name attached (File Tracking Service).
  • Information provided by the Service:
    • confirmation of receipt;
    • confirmation of opening;
    • content of the message, only when necessary to provide the Service and as described below;
    • time mark of each e-mail opening;
    • history of the hours (number, date and time) to which the recipient has opened the received e-mail;
    • browser and operating system used by the recipient who opened the email;
    • number of links included in the e-mail;
    • text and URL of such links;
    • number of clicks made on each of them by the recipient;
    • timemark of each click on the email;
    • download and open the attachment (File Tracking Service); and,
    • browser and operating system used by the person who has clicked on the email.

The personal data stated is the only information Mailtrack will have access to provide the Service. The authorisations for Gmail and the connection to your Google account detailed in the Terms and Conditions of Service are technically necessary for the provision of the Service by Mailtrack and to provide the Service (e-mail tracking service (Campaigns) or attachment opening service (File Tracking), but do not imply Mailtrack’s access to any data or information from the Recipient.For your best understanding, this is the breakdown of Mailtrack’s use of the above permissions:

  • Basic permits: access to your email metadata, such as tags and headings.The Service needs this permission to identify your emails and correctly assign the opening status of the mail (double check mark).
  • Insert the email into your inbox: this permission is necessary to add email alerts to your Gmail inbox when your emails are opened.
  • Review and manage your basic email settings: the Service needs to know its configuration (e.g. aliases, design style) to work properly.
  • Manage the labels of mailboxes: double-check marks on mobile devices are added as labels. The Service needs this permission to add tags (check marks) to your emails and update them when they open.
  • Read, send, delete and manage your email: The Campaign servicemakes a copy of your email for each recipient and uses “send permission from the Gmail API” to individually send and track a copy of this email. The Service needs to remove the tracking pixel from your emails sent, so when you open your own emails you don't produce a self-opened email. No one in email will read your emails, email will never send emails on your behalf and will never share the content of your emails.
  • Review and update your data on various websites (all usergooglecontent.com sites, all mailtrack.io sites, Inbox.google.com, mail.google.com, mailtrack.io): the Service modifies the Gmail and Google Inbox websites in order to display double check marks as well as Mailtrack’s website.

As detailed in the above permissions, some of them are never used by Mailtrack, but Google’s permission system does not have enough granularity to select only those that email really needs.

Mailtrack guarantees that:

  • only automated software uses the above permissions;
  • no one on Mailtrack reads their emails;
  • Mailtrack will never send emails on your behalf;
  • Mailtrack will never share the content of your emails with third parties;
  • Mailtrack will never share your browsing data with third parties;
  • Mailtrack does not store the content of the message.

The processing of the aforementioned personal data is carried out only for the provision of the Service within the terms and duration indicated in the Terms of Service and always, under the User’s instructions.

3.3. As a result Mailtrack:

(i) will not process the personal data of the Recipient for purposes other than the provision of the Service requested by the User and will not transfer such data, even for storage, to unauthorised third parties;

(ii) will process your personal data as Recipient following documented instructions from the User. When Mailtrack is aware that the instructions given by the User violate the data protection regulations, Mailtrack shall immediately inform the User;

Consequently, the User must comply with the applicable obligations under the data protection regulations, including the obligation to obtain the consent of the data subjects to give third parties access to third parties of their personal data to third parties.The User, and not Mailtrack, shall be solely responsible for fulfilling these obligations.
