Privacy policy

LAST UPDATED: 01/22/2020

We at Binary Studio take your data privacy seriously. So we’d like to take a moment to explain not only how we collect, share, and use personal information, but also how we secure it and care about each user who shares it with us when using https://binary-studio.com and related websites - subdomains (“websites”).

Who are we?

Binary Studio LLC (“Binary Studio”, “we”, “our” or “us”) is a boutique software development and IT consulting agency with over 17 years of experience in building world-class software (“services”) for small and medium-sized businesses all over the world.

What information do we process and why?

We only collect information about you that is necessary for us to allow you to utilize our websites and offer you our services, and only to the extent specifically provided in this policy. Our websites are a basic method for users to find us on the Internet, get in touch with us, leave a request for our services, and build business relations in general. This fully corresponds with our legitimate interests to promote, provide, and deliver services mentioned on our websites, as well as build business relations. Thus, by interacting with our websites, you give us consent to collect, use, and disclose your information in the manner provided in this policy.
We collect information provided by you on a voluntary basis (and so you expect us to collect it) and information we collect automatically with the help of third-party service providers.

As per the information provided by you:

  • If you submit an inquiry via our contact form or contact us by email/phone

We collect your full name, email address, phone number, and any additional information you submit in order to provide you with a response and the services you requested.

  • If you subscribe to our updates via the blog section on our website

We collect the email address you provide in order to keep you informed about our blog updates.

  • If you apply for a job

We collect information from your CV and any additional information you provide us by phone or/and email in order to give you feedback and see how the job fits your profile.

  • If you register for a Binary Studio Academy

We collect your full name, date of birth, email, phone number, city, university, graduation year, info source from which you received information about Binary Studio Academy, your tech skills and additional information you provide us with in order to complete the registration process and enter Academy’s course. Note, if you register through a third-party log-in/ account registration service (such as Facebook or Gmail), we collect your basic profile information from such a third-party log-in/account registration service.

Regarding information collected automatically, these include details of your interactions with our website, such as the date and time of your contact request, and if you call us, your phone number and call recordings; device IDs or other unique identifiers; device and software characteristics (such as type and configuration), connection information, statistics on page views, referring source (for example, referral URLs), IP address (which may tell us your general location), browser and standard web server log information.

Be advised, in order to reply to your request and build strong business relations we could google and collect some information about you which is publicly available on the Internet such as your job title, a company you work for, or your LinkedIn profile.

With whom do we share your data and who are the third-party service providers we use?

To ensure the security of your personal information, we carefully select the third-party services we use. We automatically collect your information with the help of (and so share with) the following third-party service providers: Google Analytics, Google Ads, Linkedin Ads, Mailchimp, Mailjet, Messenger customer chat (from Facebook). Make sure that they are compliant with GDPR and other data protection regulations and protect your data as we do by reading their privacy policies we linked above. Kindly note that we won’t make any disclosures of your personal information to any other person, company, or service without your consent.

How long do we retain your data?

We store data until it is no longer necessary to provide our services or until the moment you withdraw your consent for collecting, processing and using it by us. We would not retain your data more than it is necessary for the purpose for which they were collected.

How to withdraw your consent for collecting, processing, and using your data?

You have the right to withdraw consent for collecting, processing, and using your data at any time by sending an email to ask@binary-studio.com. If you are receiving our emails, you can unsubscribe by clicking the Unsubscribe or Update your preferences button in any email or by just replying with a request to unsubscribe.

What are my data protection rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)?

If you are a resident of the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights, covered by GDPR. - See more

We aim to take reasonable steps to allow you to correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your personal data.

If you wish to be informed of what personal data we hold about you and if you want it to be removed from our systems, please email us at ask@binary-studio.com.

What are my data protection rights under the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)?

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably, the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared and to comply with this policy. - See more

How do we secure your personal data?

We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the information you share with us. The security of your data is important to us but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

What about links to other websites?

Our website may contain links to other websites that are not operated by us. If you click a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's website.
