Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes how Missive, owned and operated by Heliom inc. (collectively, “Heliom”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), collects, uses, secures and shares data collected from users (“Users”) of the Missive application (“App”). The “App” means all websites, products and services offered by us, including without limitation missiveapp.com, mail.missiveapp.com and downloadable applications offered at missiveapp.com/download.

Personal Data We Collect

For Users only browsing our website, we collect the following anonymous information:

  • Browser and device data, such as anonymized Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser name, screen dimensions, device manufacturer and model, language, plug-ins, add-ons and language preferences;
  • Usage data, such as time spent on our website, pages visited, links clicked and the pages that led or referred Users to our website.

In addition, we collect the following information from Users who register to the App:

  • Account information, such as email address, password or third-party login token;
  • Contact data, such as name, mailing address and phone number;
  • Billing data, such as credit card number (stored by our payment service provider) and billing address;
  • Data imported from Users external channels, such as emails, address book contacts, calendar events, SMS and other messaging data stored in services like Gmail, Office 365, IMAP, Twilio, Facebook, Twitter, Asana, Pipedrive and Todoist;
  • Data created by Users from within Missive, such as chat comments, uploaded files and messages sent to external channels.

We collect personal data from Users only if they voluntarily submit such data to us. Users can always refuse to supply personal data, although this may prevent them from using related App features.

How We Use Personal Data

Missive does not sell personal data to third parties or use it for marketing purposes or for serving advertisements. We collect data for the sole purpose of providing an App that lets Users manage the data in question. We have no interest in collecting non-anonymized data from anyone who isn’t a registered User of the App.

We will not transfer any Users data to others unless doing so is necessary to provide and improve the App’s functionality, comply with applicable law, or as part of a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets.

Examples of how we use collected data to offer App functionality include:

  • Synchronizing data from Users external channels to be displayed in the App’s interface. Data synchronization happens continuously, regardless of Users being online (actively using the App) or offline, for purposes such as sending notifications to Users mobile devices. After a continuous period where a User does not actively use the App, we stop synchronizing their data.
  • Delivering data to Users external channels, only as explicitely requested by Users. Data delivery may happen immediately upon Users request, at a later date scheduled by Users, or automatically upon events such as an incoming message (auto-responders) in accordance with Users chosen parameters.

In addition to providing our App’s main functionality, we may use Users personal data for the following purposes:

To improve customer service

Personal data helps us respond to customer service requests and support needs more efficiently.

To influence our App’s direction and features

We may use data in aggregate to understand how our Users as a group use the services and resources provided on our App.

To improve our App

We may use feedback Users provide to improve our products and services.

To process payments

Credit card data is stored to facilitate recurring payments of subscriptions to the App. Credit card data is stored for the whole duration of Users subscriptions. The storage or credit card data is implemented by our payment service provider, Stripe.

To send periodic emails

We may use email addresses to send Users data and updates pertaining to their usage of the App. It may also be used to respond to their inquiries, questions, and/or other requests.

How We Store And Protect Personal Data

Missive being a collaborative application, Users data is stored on our servers. This allows Users to access their data from different devices or locations and also to easily share their data with other Users.

We do not allow humans to read Users personal data, unless:

  • We first obtained the User’s affirmative agreement for specific messages or data;
  • It is necessary for security purposes (such as investigating a bug or abuse);
  • It is necessary to comply with applicable law; or
  • Our use is limited to internal operations and the data (including derivations) have been aggregated and anonymized.

How We Share Collected Data

We do not sell, trade, or rent Users personal data to others. We may use third party service providers to help us operate our business and the App or administer activities on our behalf; these companies are authorized to use Users personal data only as necessary to provide these services to us:

  • Send marketing communications
  • Provide cloud computing infrastructure
  • Process payments

Right To Access

We acknowledge that Users have the right to access their personal data. Users may access, correct, or request deletion of their personal data by contacting us at the contact addresses below. We will respond to Users requests within a reasonable timeframe. In certain circumstances, we may be required by law to retain Users personal data.

Security

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of Users personal data, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our App.

Sensitive and private data exchange between the App and its Users happens over a TLS secured communication channel (also known as SSL) and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.

Web Browser Cookies

Our App uses cookies and similar technologies to keep Users logged in, remember their preferences and identify connected devices for security purposes. By using our App, you agree that we can place cookies or similar files on your computer or device. Users may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, but this will cause parts of the App to not function properly.

Marketing Communications

If Users register to our App or our mailing list, we may send them emails about company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. Users always have the right to opt out of these email communications.

Any changes will be effective from the time of publication of the new Privacy Policy. We encourage Users to regularly check this page for any changes to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal data we collect. We will notify Users by emails should any significant changes be made to this Privacy Policy.
