Privacy

Protecting our customers’ information and privacy is our main priority. Base’s privacy policy incorporates its employees, partners, agents, affiliates, and contractors.

We consider information about our customers, including personal information, strictly confidential and consistent with all legal and regulatory requirements. We use a synthesis of technology and standard practices to ensure that your information is secured from unauthorized access or exposure.

For additional information or to address any concerns, please contact [email protected] or refer to our Privacy Policy page.

Do You Store My Passwords?

No. The majority of third-party service providers have a secure way of authentication that does not require you to provide your credentials. Most of the time, the standardized process of OAuth 2.0 (http://oauth.net/2/) is used. We only encrypt and store the secure token that is given by the API provider when you finish the authorization process. This makes it possible for us to fetch data and generate your searches without requiring you to perform authorization every day. 

How Safe is Base?

Internet communications between Base and all 3rd party APIs use SSL encrypted HTTPS connections. We know that data confidentiality is of utmost importance to our clients and their trust in our product is dependent on our capacity to protect their data. Therefore, we are dedicated to implementing the best security practices in the industry.

Data Property

You are the owner of your data. We do not use any integration-provided data for anything else other than to display it in your dashboards. Any stored data will be deleted upon a client’s request, apart from the data we are not in control of but are only processing. The only exception to this is when Base needs to rely on a legitimate interest lawful basis and keep the record of our previous clients’ emails in a separate database, in order to prevent the abuse of our free trial program. We only keep the email address without any associated personal data we may have previously been at the disposal of.

Four Dots as a processor of User/Client Data

Depending on the context of the personal information you provide, Four Dots may be the data controller (“controller”) or data processor (“processor”) of your personal information under this policy. Four Dots is a processor of Client Data, personal information submitted to the Service or collected through the Service on behalf of or at the direction of users.

Service Users may not upload personal data without first getting consent from the subjects that data is pertaining to or without qualifying for a different lawful basis. If we find out that you have been uploading data you are not authorized to handle, we reserve the right to delete the data in its entirety.

Article 28 of the GDPR specifies that the relationship between the controller and the processor should be made in writing (electronic form is acceptable under subsection (9) of the same Article). Four Dots’ Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy serve as your data processing agreement, setting out the instructions that you are giving to Four Dots with regard to processing the personal data you control and establishing the rights and responsibilities of both parties. Four Dots will only process your Client Data based on your written instructions as the data controller unless required by law to act without such instructions.

Who Will Have Access to My Data?

You and those to whom you authorize access to your data.

Our staff might access your data for debugging any issues or to make minor adjustments with the goal of improving performance. This will be tracked in our logs, so you can revise the full extent of our interactions with your data, from the moment we receive it. Base will not reveal your data to anyone, under any circumstances.

What Happens When I Delete Data?

Everything is deleted when you cancel your account, along with your configuration, as well as any data we would have retrieved and stored and is not used by any other of your searches.
