Privacy Policy

Thank you for being an 8base customer. We appreciate the trust that you have shown in us. We aim to deliver superb service and product functionality.  

To assist you, you must provide us with confidential (and perhaps trade secret) information regarding your products or services.

Toward that end, this policy explains how we will use such information and protect it from dissemination.  

At 8base, we value the privacy of the information that you provide us and our AI Solution Architect, “8base Archie.”  For simplicity, references hereinafter to 8base and 8base Archie shall collectively be referred to as “8base Archie.”

Information Collection and Use
8base Archie is dedicated to maintaining the confidentiality of your innovative ideas and personal information that will likely include the following:

  • Email addresses
  • Names
  • IP Address
  • Detailed user submission data (e.g., startup ideas, venture proposals)
  • User Agents, including browser type and version
  • Usage data (e.g., pages visited, time and date of visits)

At 8base Archie, we collect this information to facilitate, customize and enhance your experience and to enable your use of our products and services. We will not use or disclose any information that we obtain from you for any other purposes unless required by law (i.e., subpoena, court order, search warrant, etc.).

Protection of User Ideas
At 8base Archie, we know that your ideas and business concepts are confidential. Therefore, we will only share your confidential information even with our service providers (i.e., employees, consultants, contractors) on a need-to-know basis. And, we also require that our consultants, employees and contractors maintain the confidentiality of your information in written agreements that we have with them. Out of necessity, we must share your ideas with providers of generative AI, who take your ideas and help us turn them into application blueprints, functional specs, technical specs, and other artifacts. Our agreements with generative AI providers, however, require that they too maintain the confidentiality of your ideas in their hands.

Use of Data
Generally speaking, we will use information collected from you for, among others, the following reasons:

  • Personalizing your 8base Archie user experience and responding to your needs
  • Improving our business through your feedback
  • Communicating with you about updates, related products or informational content
  • Analyzing your usage to optimize our services
  • Working with Third-Party Service providers

As for Third Party Service Providers, we may use them for the following purposes:

  • To facilitate the provision of 8base Archie services
  • To assist us in analyzing how our services are used

Third parties may have access to your confidential information to perform specific tasks for us but for no other reasons.  And, all such tasks pertain to allowing and enhancing your use of the 8base products and services.

Consent to Data Processing
At 8base Archie, your information may be collected, used, disclosed, and retained by us for the following reasons:

  • To aid us in providing our products and services
  • To comply with our legal obligations
  • To resolve disputes with you
  • To enforce our agreements with you, if necessary
  • To allow your use of our products and services

You may rescind your consent to our use of your information at any time.  But, please understand that recission of such consent will affect our ability to provide you with ongoing use of our products and services.

Security of Data
At 8base Archie, we know it is crucially important that your confidential information remain secure.  While we use commercially acceptable means to protect it, no information that we store and transmit for you by electronic means can ever be 100% secure, as is the case with every company, no matter how big or small. Yet, we only allow use of your confidential information to those of our employees, consultants and contractors on a need to know basis, and they may only access our systems through the use of specific user names and passwords.  We also take steps to protect our systems (which are hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS)) through industry standard measures.  Therefore, a breach of our systems would likely require a breach of the AWS systems, as well, which is unlikely to occur while not impossible.  

European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (EEA), you have certain data protection rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to which we adhere.

As such, we allow you to correct, amend, delete, or limit the use of your confidential information. And, if you wish to be informed about your confidential information (i.e., such as what we hold), please contact us.

Generally speaking, the laws on privacy and privacy polices are somewhat limited. Yet, under this Policy, you have the following rights regarding your confidential information (i.e., that we hold for you):

  • To access, update, or delete your information
  • To rectify information that is inaccurate or incomplete
  • To object to our processing of your information
  • To restrict our access to your information (i.e., meaning, you can request that we limit our processing of your information at any time)
  • To ask that we allow use of your information across different or our services
  • To withdraw your consent for our use of your confidential information at any time

Please note:  we may ask you to verify your identity before responding to the above requests.

California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
If you live or work in California, we must comply with the CCPA, which pertains to personal information (i.e., of individual consumers).  Therefore, in addition to the rights contained in the GDPR section above, you have the following additional rights:

  • To request that 8base Archie disclose the categories and specific pieces of confidential information that we collect from your customers that are individual consumers
  • To request that we delete any personal data about your customers that are individual consumers
  • To request that we not sell your customer data that are individual consumers

If you make such a request, we have one month to respond. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us.

Information Sharing
At 8base Archie, we will not sell, trade, or rent your confidential information to others.  We may share generic aggregated demographic information (i.e., not linked to any personal identification information] regarding visitors and users with our business partners, trusted affiliates, employees, contractors, consultants and advertisers.

If we are requested to disclose your confidential information under a subpoena, court order, search warrant or other such means, we will provide you with as much notice as is possible so that you may object to such disclosure if you so choose.

Service Providers
We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:

  • To facilitate the provision to you of our products and services
  • To allow you to use our products and services
  • To assist us in analyzing how you and others use our products and services

On occasion, we contract with third party service providers to ensure that they keep confidential and secure what we keep confidential and secure.  Just like us, we require that such third parties not us use or disclose your confidential information in any manner other than by providing you with the 8base Archie products and services.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We will post any policy updates on this page, or, if they are significant, through a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification).
