Privacy Policy

1. OverviewPublist values your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use, protect, and disclose information and data when you use the Publist website located at https://publist.app and any Publist mobile applications ("Site") or Publist services ("Services"). This Privacy Policy also explains your choices for managing your information preferences, including opting out of certain uses of your Personal Information (as defined below). The Site is operated by Publist, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "Publist", "we", "us" and "our"). Publist is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

2. Collection of Your Personal InformationYou may register for an Account by (a) providing certain personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) such as, and as applicable, your name, your e-mail address, and your Phone Number, or (b) by allowing us to access your name and other profile information through existing accounts you may have on sites including, but not limited to, Google, Slack, or Dropbox (collectively, the “Account Websites”, and each of your profiles on such Account Websites, an “Account Profile”)

When you create a new account to use the Services we will solicit your consent to connect your Google account to your new Publist account (using Google’s OAuth authentication method), thereby providing us with access to your Google account, including but not limited to Files and Email Attachments. Although the OAuth authentication provides access to your Google account, Publist accesses and stores a subset of data from your Google account, including name, email address, and file metadata to provide you with our Services.

Any information that can readily identify a person is considered “Personal Information.” It is your responsibility to give us current, complete, truthful and accurate information, including Personal Information, and to keep such information up to date. We will not be responsible for any problems or liability related to inaccurate or incomplete Personal Information, whether due to your failure to update such Personal Information or otherwise. If you register for an Account through the use of an Account Profile, you will not be required to directly provide us with any Personal Information as we use the information you have already provided to the Account Website in registering for an account with such Account Website and which you have allowed the Account Website to share with us, including, but not limited to, your first name, your Account Website user profile picture, and the networks to which you belong.

In addition to the Personal Information, we may additionally collect the following information from Users (collectively with Personal Information, the “Information”): (i) information from publicly accessible sources; (ii) your visit to or use of the Site and Services, such as webpages viewed, links clicked and other similar navigation action in connection with the Site; and (iii) certain standard browser information, such as your browser type, IP address, and access times.

You further acknowledge and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, maintain copies of your Information indefinitely, or delete any or all Information, at our sole discretion.

(f) In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Publist, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Publist may continue to use your Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

5. Security of Your Personal InformationThe Personal Information we collect is securely stored within our database, and we use standard, industry-wide practices such as firewalls, encryption, and (in certain areas) Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) for protecting your information. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to Publist over the Internet.
We maintain technical, physical, and administrative security measures designed to provide reasonable protection for your Personal Data against loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, and alteration. The security measures include firewalls, data encryption, physical access controls to our data centres, and information access authorisation controls. While we are dedicated to securing our systems and Services, you are responsible for securing and maintaining the privacy of your password(s) and Account/profile registration information and verifying that the Personal Data we maintain about you is accurate and current. We are not responsible for protecting any Personal Data that we share with a third-party based on an account connection that you have authorised.
