Some cookies are removed when you close your browser session. These are the “Session Cookies”. Some last for longer periods and are called “Persistent Cookies”. We only use “Session Cookies”.
Whilst we do not change our practices in response to a “Do Not Track” signal in the HTTP header from a browser or mobile application, you can manage your cookies preferences, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them, through your browser settings. Please bear in mind that disabling cookies may complicate or even prevent you from using the Services.
Please note that if you get a new computer, install a new browser, erase or otherwise alter your browser’s cookie file (including upgrading certain browsers), you may also clear the opt-out cookies installed once you opt-out, so an additional opt-out will be necessary to prevent additional tracking.
We may engage in service and promotional communications, through e-mail, phone, SMS and notifications.
We may contact you with important information regarding our Services. For example, we may send you notifications (through any of the means available to us) of changes or updates to our Services, billing issues, service changes, log-in attempts or password reset notices, etc. Customer Users may also send notifications, messages and other updates to End Users regarding their or the End Users use of the Services.

9. Data Subject Rights
Individuals may have rights concerning their Personal Data. If you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, such as the right to request access to, and rectification or erasure of your Personal Data held with Qwak, or to restrict or object to such Personal Data’s processing, or to port such Personal Data, or the right to equal services and prices (each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you) – please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com.
Please note that when you ask us to exercise any of your rights under this policy or applicable law, we may need to ask you to provide us certain credentials to make sure that you are who you claim you are, to avoid disclosure to you of personal information related to others and to ask you to provide further information to better understand the nature and scope of data that you request to access. Such additional data will be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g., as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request), in accordance with Section 4 above.
We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data related to others.
If you would like to make any requests or queries regarding Personal Data that we process on our customer’s behalf, please contact the administrator of such customer’s account directly. For example, if you are a Customer User, and wish to access, correct, or delete data processed by Qwak on behalf of our customer, please direct your request to the relevant customer (who is the “data controller” of such data – see Section 10 below). Note that if you do contact us, we may share your communications with our customer; and that we may also share the contact details of the account administrator with individuals who sent us such a request or query relating to this account.
10. Data Controller/Processor
Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR or the CCPA, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Data: the “data controller” (or under the CCPA, “business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “data processor” (or under the CCPA, “service provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the data controller (or business). Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
Qwak is the “data processor” or ‘service provider’ of Customer Data, which we process on behalf of our customer (who is the “data controller” of such data); and our Service Providers who process such Customer Data on our behalf are the “sub-processors” of such data.
Accordingly, Qwak processes Customer Data strictly in accordance with such customer’s reasonable instructions and commercial agreements with such customer. The customer, as controller of such data, will be responsible for meeting any legal requirements applicable to data controllers (such as establishing a legal basis for processing and responding to Data Subject Rights requests concerning the data they control).
For the avoidance of doubt, each customer is solely responsible for providing adequate notice to its Users, customers and any other individual whose data may be contained in Customer Data – including sufficient reference to the processing of their Personal Data via the Services, and any other information necessary to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws; and to obtain all approvals and consents from such individuals as required under such laws.
