Summary (or “The Gist”)
WE KEEP YOUR DATA SAFE AND PRIVATE
When it comes to protecting your private information, we’ve got it locked down tighter than Alcatraz. We partner with Amazon Web Services, use 128-bit SSL encryption, and create daily backups. And we never, EVER disclose any data to third-parties without your permission. Rest easy, nothing’s getting out of here alive.
Your privacy is really important to us. If you have any concerns that aren’t covered here, please contact us
Below are the highlights of this policy:
- We will never sell, rent, or share your personal information without your explicit consent, with or without personally identifying information. That includes any government (foreign or domestic) unless we are compelled by law. If we are required by law to disclose any of the information collected about you, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email. We will independently object to overly broad requests for access to information about users of our site.
- We may share information about user behavior in the aggregate only. For example, we could share information like, “which day of the week do people spend the most time in front of their computer?”
- You can delete your data at any time — all of it, or just a part of it. You can also delete your account at any time. Deleting your account deletes all your data from our database.
- We won’t spam you, ever as it is prohibited by law. We might occasionally send one-time messages about important Yaware Solutions Corp news. We will likely continue to introduce ways that you can optionally have Yaware Solutions Corp contact you with data that you care about, but you will always be able to turn this on or off.
- For individual accounts, no other user can see any of your data or personal information.
- For team accounts, sharing of data is controlled by the administrator of the account. No one outside of your organization will have access to any of your data.

Excert from AWS privacy shield FAQ:
“AWS customers can already transfer personal data from the EU to the US in a compliant way; The EU-US Privacy Shield aims to enable the compliant transfer of personal data from data controllers in the EU to data controllers (or processors) in the US. AWS offers customers a Data Processing Addendum, including Model Clauses (Data Processing Addendum) that was approved in 2015 by the EU data protection authorities, known as the Article 29 Working Party. This Data Processing Addendum enables Amazon customers, when using AWS to transfer personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA), to any country, including to the US. For this reason, the EU-US Privacy Shield does not affect the way customers use, or work, with AWS. Customers can continue transferring their content from AWS’ EU regions to the US regions with the knowledge that AWS is compliant with EU data protection requirements.”
Yaware respects the principles of each Privacy Shield with respect to personal data transferred from the European Economic Area and Switzerland. If third-party agents process personal data on our behalf in a manner inconsistent with the principles of either Privacy Shield framework, we remain liable unless we prove we are not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
10. Data Retention
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data and collected data by the service is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary.
