Your privacy is very important to us and we believe that it is our responsibility to keep your personal data private and confidential. In this document, we outline our privacy policy and your rights. If you need more information, please contact: legal@snapt.net.

1. Purpose

In many cases, Snapt is considered a “controller” of the relevant personal information data (under EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and other similar laws) because Snapt determines how that data will be handled. Snapt, Inc. is typically the primary controller within the Snapt stable of companies and affiliates.

For certain products and services, Snapt may act only as a “processor” (not a controller) with respect to the personal data it collects.
