Privacy Policy

Last updated: May 25, 2018 

Our Privacy Policy is critical to establishing and maintaining trust with you and our customers. At Opal, we believe you should know what data we collect, how we use it, and have meaningful control over both. 

This Privacy Policy describes how we collect and use your Personal Data when you visit our website (the “Site”) or use the Opal Platform as a licensed subscriber. By “Personal Data,” we mean data that relates to you as an identified or identifiable natural person. For example, Personal Data may include your name, your address, your telephone number, or your email address. By “Opal Platform,” we mean the cloud-hosted Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) software platform offered by Opal, including all desktop and mobile applications, Opal adapters, API, SDK, or any other application we license to you. 

Who We Are 

As used in this Privacy Policy, “we,” “us” or “our” means Opal Labs Inc., an Oregon corporation with principal offices located at 1060 NW 9th Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97209.

Data protection laws in certain jurisdictions differentiate between a “controller” and “processor” of Personal Data. In general, the company you work for is the controller of your Personal Data, and we are the processor of your Personal Data relating to your use of the Opal Platform. 

If you have questions or complaints regarding our Privacy Policy or practices, please contact us at legal@workwithopal.com or by mail to Opal Labs Inc., ATTN: Legal, 1060 NW 9th Avenue, Portland, OR 97209. We will respond to your questions or complaints within 30 days or as otherwise required by law. Following receipt of a complaint, if necessary, we will investigate the issue and provide you with information regarding investigation and the resolution of the complaint.

You may contact our Data Protection Officer at dpo@workwithopal.com.

Personal Data We Collect 

We collect Personal Data on the Site and within the Opal Platform as further described below. 

The Site 

We may use tracking technologies like cookies, clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs, or similar technologies. Cookies are used to identify which areas of the Site you visited and your actions on the Site. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages or emails. 

You may find a list of the cookies used and their respective purposes at workwithopal.com/cookies.

As is true of most web sites, we gather certain Personal Data automatically and store it in log files. This Personal Data may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We may combine this automatically collected log Personal Data with other Personal Data we collect about you. 

The legal basis for this processing of Personal Data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) to provide you with our services and keep our website running safely.

If you apply for employment with us via the Site, we will collect your name, email address, location, phone number, work experience, and qualifications, as well as gender, race/ethnicity, and veteran/disability status.

The legal basis for this processing of Personal Data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) to solicit employment applications through our Site and to comply with related legal obligations.

Opal does not require that you provide Personal Data through our Site. If you do not wish to provide the Personal Data requested, we may not be able to service you properly or provide the benefit for which the Personal Data is requested.

You may control cookies by configuring the privacy settings within your browser (please refer to your browser’s help function to learn more about cookie controls). Setting your cookie settings within our Site will not alter the cookies used by third parties. The use of cookies by third parties is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

The Opal Platform

The Opal Platform allows our users to upload digital assets and other data and interact with this data and other users. Content may include photos and images, videos, gifs, sketches, retail site diagrams, designs, logos, or channel data, and copy for emails, texts, websites, social media messages or posts, and other forms of data or electronic communications (“Customer Data”). Customer Data includes data about our Customers, and the third parties they correspond with.

We also collect information about individuals involved in our Customers’ marketing creation process, including employees, agents and contractors, and those outside of their organizations (“User Information”). User Information may include Personal Data related to the individual’s department, name, job title, job duties, profile photograph, work location, work email address, work phone number, personal social media account, or similar kinds of information.

The legal basis for this processing of Personal Data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) to perform under our contract with our respective Customer.

We collect Personal Data automatically about how our users interact with the Opal Platform, including username, password, IP address, device and browser information, and access location (“Automatically Collected Information”). We do this via data collection technologies such as cookies, web beacons, gifs, or other tracking technologies. We collect this information to monitor, support, and improve the Opal Platform or to provide our Customers and end users with certain tools or features. We may use Automatically Collected Information to tell us how you interact with the Opal Platform, to improve the Opal Platform, or to develop new products, services, or features. We may combine this information with other information we collect.

The legal basis for this processing of Personal Data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) to develop our product and enable us to enhance your user experience.

Where We Collect Personal Data

For Customers or users located in the European Economic Area (the “EEA”), we process your Personal Data in accordance with the privacy rights and regulations under the GDPR. We will take steps to ensure that your Personal Data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which we process it. We provide adequate protection for the transfer of your Personal Data to countries outside of the EEA through agreements based on the Standard Contractual Clauses authorized under the EU Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and the GDPR.

A list of third countries to which we transfer Personal Data can be found here: workwithopal.com/sub-processors.

To request a copy of the respective safeguards, please contact us at: dpo@workwithopal.com.

How Long We Keep Personal Data

We will retain Personal Data we process on behalf of our Customers for as long as permitted by law, or for the period of time requested by a particular Customer.

We will retain the Personal Data which is processed by us as a controller for as long as it is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

How We Use Personal Data We Collect

In general, we process Personal Data only when you consent to the processing of your Personal Data for one or more specific purposes, for the performance of a contract with our Customer, when processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, or based on our legitimate interests, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of you which require the protection of your Personal Data.

We do not use automated decision-making, including profiling.

The Site

We may use tracking technologies like cookies, clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs, or similar technologies. Cookies are used to identify which areas of the Site you visited and your actions on the Site. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users.

We may combine this automatically collected log information with other Personal Data we collect about you.

We use clear gifs to determine whether our education, outreach, or marketing campaigns are successful, such as to see whether you opened an email we sent or if you clicked on a link within the email we sent. Generally, we use these technologies to manage content, analyze trends, monitor page visits and content downloads, administer the Site, track users’ activities around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our Site user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.
