How we use your information

We use the information we collect about you for the following purposes:

Providing you with the Fonto Trial Version: We use the information that you provide us to provide the service to you. This includes allowing you to request an invite to our trial.
For data analytics: We use information about you to help us improve the Fonto Website and our users’ experience, including by monitoring aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns.
To communicate with you about the Fonto Website and/or Fonto Trial Version: We use your contact information to get in touch with you and to send communications about information of Fonto. For example, we may send you emails about new releases, news articles or administrative matters.
Customer happiness: We use information about you, information that you provide to our team, and information about your interactions with the Fonto Website and/or Fonto Trial Version to resolve technical issues you experience with the Service, and to ensure that we can repair and improve the service for all Fonto users.
For matters that we are required to use your information by law: Fonto will use or disclose your information where we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (b) to enforce our EULA or to protect the security or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Fonto, our Users or others.

These are the reasons that Fonto may need to use information about you.

Legal bases for processing information under the GDPR (for users in the EEA)

For Fonto users in the the European Economic Area (EEA) Fonto processes your information in accordance with European laws and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR governs how Fonto may process your information, and the rights that EEA users have in relation to it. This means that Fonto will collect and use your information only where:

We need it to provide you the Fonto Trial Version.
It is justified because of a legitimate interest such as for research and development or marketing our Fonto products (but only where our legitimate interest isn’t overridden by your interest in protecting your data). You consent to us using your information in a certain way. It is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations.

If you have consented to our use of your information you may withdraw that consent at any time. Depending on the situation you can either withdraw your consent by emailing yourfriends@fontoxml.com. Where we are using your information because of a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use. However, if you do so it may mean that it is not possible for you to continue using the Fonto Trial Version.

GDPR, you may have heard of it? It’s been kind of a big deal.

Sharing your information

We will not rent or sell your information into third parties outside Fonto and its group companies (including any parent, subsidiaries and affiliates).
We won’t share your personal information.

Who we may share your information with

We may share your information with third-party service providers for the purpose of providing the Fonto Website and/or Fonto Trial Version to you and to facilitate Fonto’s interests, as outline above. Those service providers will only be provided with access to your information as is reasonably necessary for the purpose that Fonto has engaged the service provider, and we will require that such third parties comply with this Privacy Policy and any applicable laws.

Some of the third parties that Fonto may share your personal information with include providers who assist Fonto with functions such as:

  • Our email service: Mailchimp (GDPR compliant)
  • Our analytics tool: Google Analytics (GDPR compliant)
  • Our customer relation management tool: Insightly (GDPR compliant)
  • Our internal communication platform: Slack (GDPR compliant)
We might share some information on you with our business partners, but only as necessary to provide the service to you or to fulfil Fonto’s legitimate business interests.

How we transfer, store and protect your data

The only information we store ourselves is the information that you provide via the forms on the Fonto Website (i.e. contactrequest demotry now). The information is stored within our website database which is hosted at SiteGround (GDPR compliant).

Fonto itself does simply not store any personal information in it’s own systems. We only use third parties that comply with the GDPR rules.

We only store the information that you provided via a form on the website. This is stored at our hosting partner which is GDPR compliant.

Opting out of collection of your information

Please refer to your mobile device or browser’s technical information for instructions on how to delete and disable cookies, and other tracking/recording tools. Depending on your type of device, it may not be possible to delete or disable tracking mechanisms on your mobile device. Note that disabling cookies and/or other tracking tools prevents Fonto from tracking your browser’s activities in relation to the Fonto Website, and for use in targeted advertising activities by Fonto, including via third parties’ websites. However, doing so may disable many of the features available through the Fonto Trial Version. If you have any questions about opting out of the collection of cookies and other tracking/recording tools, you can contact us directly at yourfriends@fontoxml.com

If you want us to stop collecting information about you, there may be some settings you can adjust in your browser or device. But Fonto might be pretty boring without it.

Rights in respect of your Information

The laws of some countries grant particular rights in respect of personal information. Users in those jurisdictions may have the right to:

Request a copy of your information;
Request that we correct inaccuracies relating to your information;
Request that your information be deleted or that we restrict access to it;
Request a structured electronic version of your information; and
Object to our use of your information;
Should you wish to make a request in respect of your personal information please contact us at yourfriends@fontoxml.com.

In some circumstances Fonto may not be able to comply with a request that you make in respect of your personal data. For example, we may not be able to provide a copy of your information where it infringes on the rights of another user. We may also be required to retain certain information that you ask us to delete for various reasons, such as where there is a legal requirement to do so.

If we are unable to resolve your request, or if you are concerned about a potential violation, you may be entitled to report the issue or make a complaint to the data protection authority in your jurisdiction.

You may have specific rights in relation to your information depending on where you live.
