Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Simple File Upload, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
  • We store personal information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
  • We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
  • Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles. By visiting the Simple File Upload website, registering with Simple File Upload, or using any Simple File Upload services, you are accepting and agree to comply with this policy. The column on the right provides a short explanation of the privacy policy and is not legally binding.

Information We Collect
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
Basically
We collect information to make Simple File Upload useful for you.
Information You Provide to Us
We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example we ask you to provide an email address and password - and that’s it. You may also provide us with information when you respond to surveys and/or communicate with our Engineers about a support question. When you communicate with us via form, email, phone, or otherwise, we store a copy of our communications (including any call recordings as permitted by applicable law).
Basically
We collect your registration and user profile data. We also collect any information you provide while interacting with any support engineers.
Information from Cookies
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. Simple File Upload cookies do not collect personal information. Simple File Upload utilizes third-party services like Google Analytics to help analyze how our site is used. These services, including Google Analytics, also use cookies to collect information about visitors to our site (including IP addresses) in an anonymous form that does not include personal information. The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. We recommend that you leave the cookies activated because cookies make your browsinig life easier.
Basically
To remember you, our system will give you a cookie. It's safe. We also use third-party services that help us analyze how our site is used and we also use cookies to collect information about visitors to our site.

Simple File Upload uses services like Google Analytics to help analyze and understand how our site is used. These tools capture data about how individual users are using our site and mobile applications. This includes event logs, device type, and device configuration settings such as language, crash data, and other data but never personal information. These third-party services treat the analytics data in accordance with this privacy policy and Simple File Upload does not disclose your personal information to any third parties through our use of these services.
Basically
We use Google Analytics
Purposes for Using Information
We use information about you for the following purposes:
  • To provide our Services. For example, to set up and maintain your account, provide customer service, process payments and orders, and verify user information.
  • To ensure quality, maintain safety, and improve our Services. For example, by providing automatic upgrades and new versions of our Services. Or, for example, by monitoring and analyzing how users interact with our Services so we can create new features that we think our users will enjoy and that will help them create and manage websites more efficiently or make our Services easier to use.
  • To protect our Services, our users, and the public. For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with our legal obligations; and protecting the rights and property of Simple File Upload and others, which may result in us, for example, declining a transaction or terminating Services.
  • To fix problems with our Services. For example, by monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues.
  • To communicate with you. For example, by emailing you to ask for your feedback, share tips for getting the most out of our products, or keep you up to date on Simple File Upload;
Basically
We may use information about you to provide, improve, or troubleshoot our services. We may also occasionally email you from time to time.

  • (2) The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
  • (3) The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or

How We Share Information
Legal and regulatory requirements: We may disclose information about you in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request. We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Simple File Upload, third parties, or the public at large. For example, if we have a good faith belief that there is an imminent danger of death or serious physical injury, we may disclose information related to the emergency without delay. In connection with any merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company, or in the unlikely event that Simple File Upload goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would likely be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. If any of these events were to happen, this Privacy Policy would continue to apply to your information and the party receiving your information may continue to use your information, but only consistent with this Privacy Policy. We may share and disclose information with your consent or at your direction. We may share information that has been aggregated or de-identified, so that it can no longer reasonably be used to identify you. For instance, we may publish aggregate statistics about the use of our Services. If you send us a request for assistance (for example, via a support email or one of our other feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish that request in order to clarify or respond to your request, or to help us support other users. We have a long-standing policy that we do not sell our users' data. We aren't a data broker, we don't sell your personal information to data brokers, and we don't sell your information to other companies that want to spam you with marketing emails.
Basically
We don't sell your information under any circumstances. We will disclose information about you in reponse to certain governmental requests or if we think you did something illegal. We may share support requests publicly to help other users with similar issues.
