Privacy Policy

At Atea Systems Ltd, we collect and manage user data according to the following Privacy Policy, with the goal of incorporating our company values: transparency, accessibility, sanity, usability. This document is part of Atea Systems Ltd's Terms of use, and by using ateasystems.com (the “Website”), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use. Please read the Terms of Use in their entirety, and refer to those for definitions and contacts.

At Atea Systems Ltd, we use the "Privacy by Design" approach. This means that we think of privacy implication before building a new feature, we don't ask for information we don't need, and we protect the information we have. We take pride in treating our users' privacy the way we'd like to be treated by a website like Atea Systems Ltd, as individuals.

Data Collected

We collect anonymous data from every visitor of the Website to monitor traffic and fix bugs. For example, we collect information like web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a timestamp for the request.

Minors and children should not use ateasystems.com. By using the Website, you represent that you have the legal capacity to enter into a binding agreement.

Use of the Data

We only use your personal information to provide you the Atea Systems Ltd services or to communicate with you about the services or the Website.

With respect to any documents you may choose to upload to Atea Systems Ltd, we take the privacy and confidentiality of such documents seriously. We encrypt all documents, and permanently delete any redacted edits you make to documents. If you choose to make a document public, we recommend you redact any and all references to people and addresses, as we can't protect public data and we are not responsible for any violation of privacy law you may be liable for.

We employ industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorized access of data about you that we store, including personal information.

We do not share personal information you have provided to us without your consent, unless:

doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request;

we believe it's needed to enforce our Terms of Service, or that is legally required;

we believe it's needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security or technical issues;

otherwise protect our property, legal rights, or that of others.
