Third Party Vendors

Data Storage

DeckDeckGo uses third-party vendors and hosting partners for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run DeckDeckGo. By using DeckDeckGo Services, you authorize DeckDeckGo to transfer, store, and use your information in the United States and any other country where we operate. All service providers and third-party vendors are required to meet our data protection standards.

Site monitoring

DeckDeckGo uses a variety of third-party services to diagnose errors and improve the performance of our site. We aim to minimize the amount of personal information shared, but the information may include your IP address or other identifying information. All service providers and third-party vendors are required to meet our data protection standards.

Third-Party Embeds

Some of the content that you see displayed on DeckDeckGo is not hosted by DeckDeckGo. These “embeds” are hosted by a third-party and embedded in DeckDeckGo. For example: YouTube videos, Giphy Gifs, Twitter tweets, or GitHub code that appear within a DeckDeckGo presentation. These files send data to the hosted site just as if you were visiting that site directly. DeckDeckGo does not control what data third parties collect in cases like this, or what they will do with it. Third-party embeds on DeckDeckGo are not covered by this privacy policy; they are covered by the privacy policy of the third-party service. Be mindful when interacting with these services.

Tracking & Cookies

We use browser cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you return to our Services. Third-party vendors may also use cookies for various reasons.

Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account.

Administrative Emails from DeckDeckGo

Sometimes we’ll send you emails about your account, service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of this type of “transactional” email (unless you delete your account).

When you interact with a transactional email sent from DeckDeckGo (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction.

Non-administrative Emails from DeckDeckGo

Upon creating a DeckDeckGo account, you will be opted into the DeckDeckGo Newsletter and other non-administrative email. Your email address and user profile information may be stored by a third-party email provider such as MailChimp or Sendgrid. You can opt out of non-administrative emails such as digests, newsletters, and activity notifications through your account’s “Settings” page and at the link of the footer in any non-administrative email you receive from us.

When you interact with a non-administrative email sent from DeckDeckGo (such as opening an email or clicking on a particular link in an email), we may receive information about that interaction.

Deleting Your Personal Information

You may request deletion of your personal information and account by emailing hello@deckdeckgo.com.

To protect information from accidental or malicious destruction, we may maintain residual copies for a brief time period. But, if you delete your account, your information and content will be unrecoverable after that time.
