GDPR compliance and Privacy Shield

For a detailed list of data sub-processors under the GDPR please see below under "Sharing of Data".

Your Data Protection Rights Under The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

If you are a resident of the EEA, you have the following data protection rights:

  • You can object to the processing of your personal information, ask us to restrict the processing of your personal information, or request portability of your personal information. You can exercise these rights by emailing
  • You have the right to opt-out of marketing communications we send you at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing emails we send you. To opt-out of other forms of marketing, please contact us by emailing
  • Similarly, if we have collected and process your personal information with your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
  • You have the right to complain to a data protection authority about our collection and use of your personal information. For more information, please contact your local data protection authority.
Right to Access, Correct, Update, or Request Deletion of Data

If you want to request an export or deletion of your personal data, and have an account with us, please contact us at support@ Please note that we cannot delete personal data in open accounts when you’re not the account owner, as this would prevent us from providing the service the account owner is paying for (We suggest that you contact the account owner of the Noko account in question to ask them to anonymize or remove your data).

In order to accommodate customers who need older data restored, we keep backups indefinitely and cannot delete personal data form them as these are stored off-site, read-only and heavily encrypted and compressed. If we do have access or restore data to our production systems or for purposes of debugging, any deletions of personal data will be applied retroactively or the personal data will be anonymized.

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.

International data transfers

GDPR includes provisions on international data transfer mechanisms. In order to comply with these provisions we have certified under the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks (please see below for details).

Data Retention and Deletion Schedules

Application Data and Backups

Backups are securely encrypted and stored as defined in our Privacy Policy.

In order to accommodate customers who need older data restored, we keep backups indefinitely and cannot delete personal data form them as these are stored off-site, read-only and heavily encrypted and compressed. If we do have access or restore data to our production systems or for purposes of debugging, any deletions of personal data will be applied retroactively or the personal data will be anonymized.

Purchase Records and Invoices for our Services and Products

We keep copies of all purchasing records for tax and auditing purposes.

Personal Metadata

We keep personal metadata, given that the user allows us to process their data, which can be controlled by going to the Privacy tab in Settings & Profile.

When a user opts-out of a type of data processing we prevent additional data from being sent to the relevant data controllers. Every quarter, we contact our data processors with a list of users who have opted out of allowing us to process their personal data in the specific manner that we use their tools.

We will also respond to Data Subject Rights Requests within the appropriate amount of time

Metadata collected by 3rd-party services

Some 3rd party services collect data independently from us, and have incorporated it as part of their service.

We do not store any copies of this data, and Data Subject Requests for this data must be submitted to the 3rd party service, since we do not control the data.

Slash 7’s Internal Business Data

We keep all internal business data as long as it’s relevant, and internal business data may include the data listed above.

Data Processing Agreement

We do have a Standard Data Processing Addendum (DPA), which meets with GDPR requirements for agreements between Data Controllers (you) and Data Processors (us). We offer this DPA to our customers that operate in the EU. The DPA offers contractual terms that meet GDPR requirements and reflect our data privacy and security commitments to our clients. To ensure no inconsistent or additional terms are imposed on us beyond that reflected in our standard DPA and model clauses, we cannot agree to sign customers’ DPAs. We're a small team so we can't offer individual changes to the DPA since we do not have a legal team on staff. Any changes to the standard DPA would require legal counsel that would be cost prohibitive, increase our prices and would put an undue burden on our other customers. The DPA is a part of our Terms of Service. By agreeing to our terms of service, you are automatically accepting our DPA and do not need to sign a separate document.

EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks

Slash7 LLC complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.

With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Slash7 is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
