We inform you that Seal Metrics has appointed a Data Protection Officer in accordance with the GDPR, who is at your disposal for any doubts or queries you may have in relation to this matter, and whom you may contact via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How and which types of data are collected?
Seal Metrics obtains both information that directly identifies the Data Subject, and information that does not directly identify the Data Subject. Information about the use of the Website and the Service is also collected as “aggregated information” and is collected and processed for a better provision of the Services through its analysis.
Seal Metrics obtains information by means of the following:
a) The data you provide directly to us.
You may provide us with your data directly and manually when you create an account, use the Service, fill out forms, surveys and/or send us any type of communication or request. This information directly identifies the Data Subject, which means that it is related to an identifiable person and will be considered and processed as “Personal Information”. Such data may be:
Username and password
When you contact us through our channels, we will ask for your consent to obtain your email address, your mail, name and surname and/or other data about your professional profile and academic background in case you are applying to work with us, as necessary following applicable law.
All the required fields will be marked in the forms provided to indicate they are mandatory; the omission of any of them could lead to the impossibility of us being able to provide the requested Service. You must provide truthful information; it is forbidden to impersonate anyone or use an alias or anonymous name.
You may not, when providing any information that may be requested from you, choose expressions that are offensive, coinciding with brands, tradenames, names or pseudonyms of public figures or celebrities for whose use you are not authorized.
It is essential that you keep your reference data, passwords and access codes generated at all times. You will be solely responsible for the use of your personal account, and in this respect, you undertake to make diligent use of this information, not to make it available to third parties, and to inform us, without delay, of its loss or theft.
In order to ensure that the information provided is always up to date and free of errors, you must notify Seal Metrics as soon as possible of any changes to your personal data by sending an e-mail to: email@example.com.
Likewise, by clicking on the applicable check box / tick box (or equivalent) button incorporated in the aforementioned forms, you declare that the information and data you have provided are accurate and truthful.
Not all of this information is collected with every interaction, and it may depend on the information you decide to share with Seal Metrics. You may choose not to share some of this information; however, in case you decide not to share some of it, this could impact some of the features of the Service.
b) Data collected automatically.

Likewise, Seal Metrics guarantees that if there are suppliers located in countries outside the European Union or others that are not considered compliant with data protection regulations, the necessary safeguards are implemented to ensure that the data can be transferred securely, either because the supplier provides adequate guarantees, through, among others, the signing of Standard Contract Clauses as approved by the European Commission, or by complying with any of the exceptions set out in the applicable regulations.
If you would like more information about these data transfers, please get in touch with us at email@example.com.
We may also share the information with third parties when legally required to do so or when required by a public authority, the justice administration, or law enforcement agencies in compliance with legal obligations applicable to us.

Security and confidentiality.
Regarding User information and data security, Seal Metrics makes reasonable efforts to protect all information obtained against unauthorized access and disclosure. To this end, we use third-party software to ensure the security and encryption of information and thus protect and seek to adequately maintain the confidentiality and privacy of the User’s information and personal data. The encryption of the data shall be carried out when the data is in transit, when it is stored through our Services or when the data is stored.
Likewise, our employees have limited access to the data and only those who need to know it, according to the obligations entrusted to them, have access to it.
Notwithstanding the above, the User acknowledges and accepts that the Internet is not a secure environment and that no website ensures 100% security, despite the efforts made by any company, to prevent security breaches and/or attacks. Therefore, the User hereby acknowledges that, despite Seal Metrics’ efforts, security breaches may occur, and that information may be accessed, shared or used by any means, or malware or malicious software attacks may be introduced into our servers, without Seal Metrics’ knowledge.
Minors under 18 years of age may not use the Services. Their parents, guardians or legal representatives shall be solely responsible for all acts performed through the Website by the minors in their care, including the filling of forms with the personal data of such minors and the marking, where appropriate, of the boxes accompanying them. In this regard, and to the extent that Seal Metrics is not able to control whether or not users are minors, it shall be the parents and guardians who shall prevent minors from accessing the Website and/or providing personal data without their supervision, and Seal Metrics shall not accept any liability in this regard.
