THE TYPE OF DATA WE COLLECT
We collect your personal data when you (i) register a user account, (ii) use our Service, (iii) sign up as a Freelancer, (iv) interact with us e.g. in technical support matters, via marketing activities or events, and/or (v) visit our website. Such personal data will include your name, company name, e-mail address, telephone number, payment details, IP address, and other information that you voluntarily provide us. For more specific information on what type of personal data we collect in each processing activity, see below.
Your use of the Services will generate reports, dashboards or files containing information regarding your web application, website, API Endpoint, mobile application, source code, etc (i.e. the target that you choose to scan with our Services). All such information generated as part of the Service will be stored by CyberSSS for the purpose of making the data available to you. The information may be deleted by you at any time. Such data may include personal data, if the Service gets access to such data during security testing. On such occasions, CyberSSS acts as a data processor, acting on your behalf (and thus not as a data controller).
