Data protection and privacy
Keeping customer data safe and secure is a huge responsibility and a top priority for PromoPrep. You can download our data protection and privacy overview here.
Our primary data centers are in the United States, hosted on Amazon AWS. All data is backed up daily and backups are stored for 35 days. Files customers upload are stored on servers that use modern techniques to remove bottlenecks and points of failure. Our software infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches.
Encryption in transit and at rest
Over public networks we use SSL certificates issued by R3. The connection uses AES_128_CBC for encryption, with SHA2 for message authentication and ECDHE_RSA as the key exchange mechanism. You can check our currently supported ciphers here: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=app.promoprep.com
Any files you upload to us are stored and encrypted at rest. Our storage system uses AES-256/ SHA-256 encryption. Files are encrypted with AES-256.
Our backups of your data are encrypted by AWS KMS CMKs and are protected by hardware security modules (HSMs) that are validated by the FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module Validation Program. Amazon S3 server-side encryption uses one of the strongest block ciphers available to encrypt your data, 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256)
Security Policies and Standards
Our application runs on Amazon’s AWS cloud infrastructure. Publicly available documentation of the AWS System and Organization Controls 3 (SOC 3) report can be found here: https://d1.awsstatic.com/whitepapers/compliance/AWS_SOC3.pdf.
Amazon AWS meets the standards set by the ISO, complying with ISO/IEC 27001:2013:
- Systematically evaluate information security risks, taking into account the impact of threats and vulnerabilities.
- Design and implement a comprehensive suite of information security controls and other forms of risk management to address customer and architecture security risks.
- Have an overarching management process to ensure that the information security controls meet our needs on an ongoing basis.
Amazon’s ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification can be found here: https://d1.awsstatic.com/certifications/iso_27001_global_certification.pdf
We utilize a third party credit card payment processing provider to collect payment information, including your credit card number, billing address and phone number. The third party service provider, and not PromoPrep, stores your payment information on our behalf.
We submit a self assessment (SAQ A 3.2.1) for PCI compliance, which is good for one year each time. A copy of our PCI compliance certificate is available upon request, after completing an NDA.

When you use our Services that connect to the Internet, including, but not limited to, when you access the Services via our websites, your mobile devices, and PromoPrep software/applications, we automatically collect certain information as described in this Section. As discussed further below, we and our service providers (which are third party companies that work on our behalf to provide and enhance the Services) use a variety of technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist in collecting this information.

3. Information We Collect From Third-Party Integrations
If you choose to use third-party integrations (e.g., Google Analytics, Shopify, etc.) through the Services or are required to do so by a Customer, such providers may allow us and our service providers to have access to and store additional information about your interaction with those services and platforms as it related to use of the Services.

5. Collection of Information Across Devices
Sometimes, we may use the information we collect — for instance, usernames, IP addresses and unique mobile device identifiers — to locate or try to locate the same unique users across multiple browsers or devices (such as smartphones or tablets), or work with service providers that do this, in order to save your preferences across devices and analyze usage of the Services.

COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
To collect the information in the “Information We Automatically Collect” section above, we and our service providers use Internet server logs, cookies, tags, SDKs, tracking pixels, and other similar tracking technologies. A web server log is a file where website activity is stored. An SDK is a section of code that we embed in our applications and software to allow third parties to collect information about how users interact with the Services. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site, that enables us to: (i) recognize your computer and login session; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand which web pages of the Services you have visited; (iv), enhance your user experience by delivering and measuring the effectiveness of content and advertising tailored to your interests; (v) perform analytics; and (vi) assist with security and administrative functions. Tracking pixels (sometimes referred to as web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny electronic tags with a unique identifier embedded in websites, online ads and/or email, and that are designed to provide usage information like ad impressions or clicks, email open rates, measure popularity of the Services and associated advertising, and to access user cookies. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather information through other methods.
Please note that you can change your settings to notify you when a cookie is being set or updated, or to block cookies altogether. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information (e.g., Internet Explorer; Google Chrome; Mozilla Firefox; or Apple Safari).

PromoPrep may view and share your Content only as necessary (i) to maintain, provide and improve the Service; (ii) prevent or address technical or security issues and resolve support requests; (iii) if we have a good faith belief, or have received a complaint alleging, that such Content is in violation of our terms; (iv) as reasonably necessary to allow PromoPrep to comply with or avoid the violation of applicable law or regulation; (v) to comply with a valid legal subpoena or request; and (vi) as set forth in our Subscription Agreement with the Customer or as expressly permitted in writing by the Customer. We may also analyze your User Content in aggregate and on an anonymized basis, in order to better understand the manner in which our Service is being used.
Combined Information. You consent that, for the purposes discussed in this Policy, we may combine the information that we collect through the Services with information that we receive from other sources, both online and offline, and use such combined information in accordance with this Policy.
Aggregate/De-Identified Data. We may aggregate and/or de-identify information collected through the Services so that such information can no longer be linked to you or your device (“Aggregate/De-Identified Information”). We may use Aggregate/De-Identified Information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes, and may also share such data with any third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners, sponsors, event promoters, and/or others. By using the Services, you consent to such use.
ONLINE ANALYTICS AND ADVERTISING
We use third-party web analytics services (e.g., Google Analytics) on our Services to collect and analyze the information discussed above, and to engage in auditing, research and reporting. The information (including your IP address) collected by various analytics technologies described in the “Cookies and Similar Technologies” section will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers, who use the information to evaluate your use of the Services, including by noting the third-party website from which you arrive, analyzing usage trends across PromoPrep products and mobile devices, assisting with fraud prevention, and providing certain features to you. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.
If you receive email from us, we may use certain analytics tools, such as clear GIFs to capture data such as when you open our message or click on any links or banners our email contains. This data allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns.
2. Online Advertising
Third parties or affiliates may administer PromoPrep banner advertising programs and other online marketing on non-PromoPrep websites and services. To do so, these parties may set and access first-party cookies delivered from a PromoPrep domain, or they may use third-party cookies or other tracking mechanisms. For example, a third-party provider may use the fact that you visited the PromoPrep website to target online ads for PromoPrep services to you on non-PromoPrep websites. Or a third-party ad network might collect information on the Services and other websites to develop a profile of your interests and target advertisements to you based on your online behavior. These parties that use these technologies may offer you a way to opt out of ad targeting as described below. You may receive tailored advertising on your computer through a web browser.
If you are interested in more information about tailored browser advertising and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link or the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, you can visit the Google Ads Settings page. Please note that we do not control any of the above opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.
3. Notice Concerning Do Not Track.
There is no uniform or consistent standard or definition for responding to, processing, or communicating Do Not Track signals. At this time the Services do not function differently based on a user’s Do Not Track signal.
HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
PromoPrep will share your information in the following ways:
- Service Providers. We may provide access to or share your information with select third parties who perform services on our behalf. These third parties provide a variety of services to us, including without limitation billing, sales, marketing, provision of content and features, advertising, analytics, research, customer service, shipping and fulfillment, data storage, security, fraud prevention, payment processing, and legal services.
- Third-Party Integrations. When you initiate a connection with a third-party integration through the Services, we will share information about you that is required to enable your use of the third-party integration through the Services.
- Public Forums. The Services make it possible for you to upload and share comments or feedback publicly (i.e., outside of the PromoPrep mobile and web app) with other users, such as on the PromoPrep blog. Any information that you submit through such public features is not confidential, and PromoPrep may use it for any purpose (including in testimonials or other PromoPrep marketing materials). Any information you post openly in these ways will be available to the public at large and potentially accessible through third-party search engines. Such information can be read, collected and/or used by other users, and it could be used to send you unsolicited messages. Accordingly, please take care when using these features of the Services.
- Aggregate/De-Identified Information. From time to time, PromoPrep may share Aggregate/De-Identified Information about use of the Services, such as by publishing a report on usage trends. As stated above, this Policy places no limitations on our use or sharing of Aggregate/De-Identified Information.
- Consent. We may also disclose your information to third parties with your consent to do so. For example, we will display your Profile Information on your profile page and elsewhere on the Services in accordance with the preferences you set in your account. You can review and revise your Profile information at any time.
– Through your account interface, you may opt-out of receiving categories of Services-related notices that are not deemed by PromoPrep to be integral to your use of the Services.
– Depending on whether you are using our free services or are a user of a paid account that belongs to a Customer, you will have certain choices regarding how to make tasks, projects, and teams private. For more information on how this works, please see our help guide.
THIRD PARTY LINKS AND SERVICES
The Services contain links to third-party websites such as social media sites, and also contain third-party integrations. If you choose to use these sites or integrations, you may disclose your information not just to those third-parties, but also to their users and the public more generally depending on how their services function.
Because these third-party websites and services are not operated by PromoPrep, PromoPrep is not responsible for the content or practices of those websites or services. The collection, use, and disclosure of your personal and other information will be subject to the privacy policies of the third party websites or services, and not this Policy. We urge you to read the privacy and security policies of these third-parties.
The Services are intended for general audiences and not for children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have collected personal information (as defined by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from children under the age of 13, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as practicable.
We may transfer information that we collect about you to third party processors across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world. If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring information to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.
If you want to learn more about the information collected through the Services, or if you would like to access or rectify your information and/or request deletion of information we collect about you, or restrict or object to the processing of your information, please contact us using the contact information below.
Where you have provided consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing that was carried out prior to withdrawing your consent. If you are dissatisfied with the way we process your information, you may lodge a complaint with the data protection authority (“DPA”) in your jurisdiction. If you are a resident of France, your DPA is the Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertes (“CNIL”).If you are a resident of Germany, please see the DPA located in your particular state. If you are a resident of France, you may provide us with instructions regarding the manner in which we may continue to store, erase and share your information after your death, and where applicable, the person you have designated to exercise these rights after your death.
HOW LONG WE STORE YOUR INFORMATION
We will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. You may contact us at any time to request permanent deletion of personal information.
We reserve the right to amend this Policy at any time to reflect changes in the law, our data collection and use practices, the features of our Services, or advances in technology. We will make the revised Policy accessible through the Services, so you should review the Policy periodically. If we make a material change to the Policy, you will be provided with notice and we will seek your consent to the updated Policy in accordance with legal requirements.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
PromoPrep takes technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, and no means of electronic or physical storage, is absolutely secure, and thus we cannot ensure or warrant the security of that information. If you have any questions about security on our Services, you can contact us.
Paid Account Agreement
Last Updated August 1, 2018
This Paid Account Agreement is between PromoPrep, a Limited Liability Corporation (“PromoPrep”) and the organization agreeing to these terms (“Customer”, “You”). This Agreement describes the platform capabilities available when You use PromoPrep’s Premium Account or Enterprise Account (“Paid Account”), via web-based applications that link to this Policy (the “Services”). This Agreement permits you to create and configure a Paid Account and invite other Users to join.
If you have been invited to a Paid Account created by a Customer, you acknowledge and agree that the Customer owns all content that you submit or upload to the Services and controls your use of the Services in accordance with applicable local laws, including but not limited to adding or removing you from an Account, enabling or disabling third-party integrations, managing permissions, and accessing, modifying, or removing content that you submit or upload to the Services.
BY CLICKING THE “I ACCEPT” BUTTON, COMPLETING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS, OR USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE REVIEWED AND ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT AND ARE AUTHORIZED TO ACT ON BEHALF OF, AND BIND TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE OWNER OF THIS ACCOUNT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICES.
In consideration of the foregoing, the parties agree as follows:
PromoPrep may update or modify the Services from time to time. If, in PromoPrep’s reasonable judgment, any such modification to the Service materially reduces the Service’s functionality, PromoPrep will inform Customer via the email address associated with Customer’s account no less than thirty (30) days prior to such change. We provide certain platform features and software applications (the “Software”), at various levels of Service based on the selected Paid Account.
This Software is updated automatically and, if such Software is designed for use on a specific browser and/or device, then a compatible browser and/or device is required for use. If Customer has engaged a third-party purchasing agent to purchase the Service on its behalf, such purchasing agent is not the Customer, and Customer agrees that Customer is still solely responsible for compliance with this Agreement.
By subscribing to the Service via a Paid Account, and providing payment account information, Customer agrees to these payment terms and conditions. If Customer subscribes to the Service under any promotional subscription fee, some additional restrictions may apply. These restrictions, if any, will be provided to Customer before Customer signs up for the Service that is subject to the promotion. Free or discounted introductory offers are only available to new users of the Service, except where expressly stated
Fees are non-refundable except as required by law or as explicitly set forth herein. Customer will pay all applicable fees when due and, if such fees are being paid via credit card or other electronic means, Customer authorizes PromoPrep to charge such fees using Customer’s selected payment method. By default, customer accounts are set to auto-renew and require recurring payments. Fees will be charged on a monthly or annual basis based on Customer’s payment subscription.
PromoPrep may automatically charge Customer for such renewal on or after the renewal date associated with Customer’s account unless Customer has terminated the Service or PromoPrep terminates the Service. Customer must cancel the Service prior to its renewal date in order to avoid billing of the next period’s fee. If Customer chooses to cancel the Service, Customer may use the Service until the end of the current period but will not be issued a refund for the most recently (or any previously) charged fees. Customer can cancel Service anytime online by going into the Customer’s account settings prior to its renewal date.
PromoPrep may revise fee rates and/or the billable amount structure for the Service from time to time and will provide Customer’s designated administrator(s) with email notice of any changes in fees at least thirty (30) days prior. Customer is responsible for providing complete and accurate billing information to PromoPrep. Customer will be billed for the appropriate plan. Customer is responsible for all taxes (excluding taxes on PromoPrep’s net income) and PromoPrep will charge tax when required to do so by law.
Term and Termination. This Agreement will remain in effect until Customer terminates its subscription to the Service or until this Agreement is otherwise terminated as provided for herein. Customer may terminate this Agreement at any time. In addition, either party may terminate this Agreement if: (a) the other party is in material breach and fails to cure such breach within twenty (20) days following receipt of written notice from the non-breaching party; (b) the other party ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 90 days. In the event that this Agreement is terminated, (i) the rights granted to Customer pursuant to this Agreement (except as specifically set forth in this section) will cease immediately; and (ii) any paid account features provided to Customer will cease to be provided.
