We use certain automatic data collection technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and other technologies to collect data, including Personal Data, when users or customers visit the Websites or Dashboards, use the Products and Services or interact with us, and may share this data with our third-party marketing vendors (including for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services and analytics tools). We explain these technologies below.
Cookies are small text files placed on a computer by a web server when browsing online and are used to store user preference data so that a web server doesn't have to repeatedly request this information. A user may block cookies by activating the settings on the browser that blocks all or some cookies. However, if a user blocks all cookies (including strictly necessary cookies), a user may not be able to access all or parts of our Websites or Dashboards. We use the following cookies:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are required for the operation of our Websites and Dashboards. They include, for example, cookies that enable a customer to log-in to secure areas of our Websites and Dashboards and use e-commerce.
- Analytical and Performance Cookies. These cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of users visiting our Websites and Dashboards and see how those users navigate our Websites or Dashboards. This helps us to improve our Websites and Dashboards.
- Functionality Cookies. These cookies recognize a user that returns to our Websites or Dashboards. This enables us to personalize our content, greet the user by name and remember preferences, for example, choice of language or region.
- Targeting Cookies. These cookies record visits to our Websites or Dashboards and the links followed. We use this information to improve our Websites or Dashboards and ensure the advertising displayed is relevant to users.
A web beacon is a small pixel incorporated into a web page or email to keep track of activity on the page or email. A web beacon helps us better manage the content of our Websites by informing us of what content is effective.
We may use third-party cross-device tracking. For example, a user may use multiple browsers on a single device, or use various devices, which can result in the customer having multiple accounts or profiles across various devices. Cross-device tracking may be used to connect these various accounts or profiles and the corresponding data from different devices.
The Websites and Portals may contain links to third-party websites that BackupSheep does not control or maintain. BackupSheep is not responsible for the privacy practices employed by these third-party websites. BackupSheep encourages users to read the privacy statements of such other websites before submitting any Personal Data.

BackupSheep AS A DATA CONTROLLER AND PROCESSOR
BackupSheep and its global third-party cloud storage providers have reasonable and appropriate technical and organizational security measures in place to protect against unauthorized processing, loss, misuse and alteration of Personal Data under its control, including: (a) pseudonymization (such as where data is separated from identifiers so that linkage to an identity is not possible without additional information that is stored separately) and encryption, (b) ensuring the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services used to process Personal Data, and (c) ensuring a process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organizational security measures. Please be advised that we cannot, and we do not believe that anyone can, genuinely guarantee or warrant absolute security of Personal Data disclosed or transmitted via the Internet to us or a third-party. As a result, absent BackupSheep’s gross negligence, customers and users agree to not hold BackupSheep responsible for the theft, destruction, loss, damage or inadvertent disclosure of Personal Data or other data provided to BackupSheep.
