Privacy Policy


Last updated April 4, 2024

This Privacy Policy applies to www.ostendio.com (the “Site”) and the Ostendio software platform at www.ostend.io (the “Services”), owned and operated by Ostendio, Inc. (“Ostendio”, “we”, “us”, or “our”). This Privacy Policy describes how Ostendio collects and uses the Personal Information (as defined below) you provide to us and it also describes the options available to you regarding our use of your Personal Information and how you can access and update this information.

When registering for Ostendio you can be certain that we have implemented a comprehensive security framework to ensure that only registered users and those people who are provided authorized access can see your Ostendio account information. We respect your right to privacy and feel it is important for you to know how we handle the information we receive from you via the Site and the Service.  The use of information collected through our services shall be limited to the purpose of providing the service for which the customer has engaged Ostendio.


When registering for the Service, you provide us with “Personal Information” such as your full name, company or organization name, and email address. “Personal Information” which refers to and includes your email address, billing address, IP address, and any other personal identifiable information which you submit or make accessible to us through the registration process at the Site and/or use of the Services. In general, the Personal Information you provide to us is used to help us communicate with you. For example, we use Personal Information to contact users in response to questions, solicit feedback from users, provide technical support, and inform users about promotional offers.

When signing up for a paid plan, Ostendio may collect credit card information and use a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing. This intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use your credit card or billing information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on Ostendio’s behalf.

If your Personal Information changes, or if you no longer desire our Services, you can modify, update, delete your account information at any time by accessing your online account and clicking on the Settings icon in the navigation bar at the top right of the screen. Ostendio’s practice is not to use such Personal Information for marketing purposes unless explicitly authorized by you. Ostendio may use anonymized, aggregate information to measure the Services usage patterns and characteristics of its user base and otherwise to improve its products and services, and may include such anonymized, aggregate information about its audience in promotional materials or reports to third parties. This aggregate information will not reference any names, phone numbers, email addresses, or other personally identifiable information, and it will not be traceable to a specific recipient or user email address. As part of the Services, you may occasionally receive email, newsletters, and other communications from us. Administrative communications relating to your account (e.g., for purposes of account recovery or password reset) are considered part of the Services and your account, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving. We also may send you other kinds of emails, which you can opt-out of either from your Account Settings page or by using the “Opt-Out” link in the emails themselves. Please note that we will never email you to ask for your password or other account information; if you receive such an email, please forward it to us. This Privacy Policy does not limit in any way our use or disclosure of aggregate information and we reserve the right to use and disclose any such aggregate information to our partners, customers, and other third parties at any time and in our discretion.

If we undergo a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred. You acknowledge and consent that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of our assets may continue to access and process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If our information practices change at any time in the future, we will post the policy changes to the Site so that you may opt out of the new information practices. We suggest that you check the Site periodically if you are concerned about how your information is used.


Ostendio will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide Services to you. We will also retain personal data we process on behalf of our customers for as long as needed to provide services to our customers. Additionally, we will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Ostendio may also transmit or share your Personal Information with its third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and other technology and services required to operate and maintain the Services, which may require that your Personal Information be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of Ostendio and the authorized third parties referred to here. These companies are authorized to use your Personal Information only as necessary to provide their services to us. Although Ostendio owns the software, code, databases, and all rights to the Ostendio software application, you retain all rights to your data.


When visiting the Site or using the Services, we use session “cookies” – a piece of information stored on your computer – to allow the Site and/or Services to uniquely identify your browser while you are logged in and to enable Ostendio to process your online transactions. Session cookies also help us confirm your identity and are required in order to use the Services. Ostendio uses persistent cookies that only Ostendio can read and use to identify a user as an Ostendio customer and make it easier for you to log into the Services. Users who disable their web browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our Site, but will not be able to access or take advantage of the Services. The use of cookies by our partners and service providers is not covered by this Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over those cookies. Our partners and service providers may use session ID and persistent cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site.


As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.

We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to track users’ movements around the Site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to Personal Information.


Except as described in this Privacy Policy, Ostendio will not give, sell, trade, rent, distribute, or loan any Personal Information for marketing purposes to any third party. We may disclose such information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, regulatory requirements or governmental request, and/or any other type of legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may also share such information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, address security or technical concerns, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety or security of any person, violations or enforcement of our Terms of Service, protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of our users or the public, or as otherwise required or permitted by law. Ostendio may also provide non-personal, summary or group statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related Site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will not include any Personal Information.


The Site and the Services are not directed to or intended for anyone under the age of 18. The Site does not knowingly collect or solicit information from anyone under the age of 18 or allow anyone under the age of 18 to sign up for the Services. In the event that we learn that we have gathered Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18, we will delete that information as soon as possible. If you believe we have collected such information, please contact us at privacy@ostendio.com.


We implement security measures designed to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access. Your account is protected by your account password, and we urge you to take steps to keep your Personal Information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls, and secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Accordingly, the security measures taken by Ostendio do not guarantee that your Personal Information will be protected against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction; nor does Ostendio represent or warrant that such information will not be accessed or used in an unauthorized manner or compromised. By using our Site and Services, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks and, subject to applicable law, Ostendio will not be liable or responsible for any damages or expenses arising from or related to any breach of security.


Our Site includes links to other websites whose privacy practices may differ from those of Ostendio. If you submit Personal Information to any of those third party websites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any website you visit.


Our Site offers publicly accessible blogs and/or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request the removal of your Personal Information from our blog and/or community forum, please email us at support@ostendio.com.  In some cases, we may not be able to remove your Personal Information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.


In compliance with certain privacy laws, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other applicable privacy laws, we provide specific additional rights for individuals who interact with us such as the right to access, rectify, object, complain about, erasure, and blockage of your Personal Information. More specifically and under certain circumstances, you have the right to:

In addition to the above, we reference certain rights for European Territory citizens throughout this Privacy Policy. Pursuant to the GDPR, citizens from “European Territories” mean the European Economic Area (EEA), the European Free Trade Area (EFTA), and Switzerland. For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, the term “European Territories” shall continue to include the United Kingdom, even though the United Kingdom has left the European Economic Area following Brexit.
