"User Personal Information" is any personal information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify them. Information such as a user name and password, an email address, a real name, and a photograph are examples of “User Personal Information.” User Personal Information includes Personal Data as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation.
"Technical Information" may include information we collect from website browsers, such as web server logs, or other log information, such as User session or activity logs. Technical Information may be connected to User Personal Information such as a username or an email address, or to other potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, analyze, improve, and optimize our website and service.
If you create an account, we require some basic information at the time of account creation. Your user account will be tied directly to your GitHub account and any information you have tied to your GitHub account and granted permission to Doorframe to access will be used in the creation of your Doorframe account. You also have the option to give us more information if you want to, and this may include "User Personal Information."
If you're just browsing the website, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs, to collect Technical Information. This is stuff we collect from everybody, whether they have an account or not.
The information we collect about all visitors to our website includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
Under certain international laws (including GDPR), Doorframe is required to notify you about the legal basis on which we process User Personal Information. Doorframe processes User Personal Information on the following legal bases:
We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although Doorframe does not request or intentionally collect any other sensitive personal information, we realize that you might store this kind of information in your account, such as in a repository or in your public profile. If you store any sensitive personal information on our servers, you are responsible for complying with any regulatory controls regarding that data.
If you're a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on Doorframe. Doorframe does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will unfortunately have to close your account. We don't want to discourage you from learning to code or explore engineering, but those are the rules. Please see our Terms of Service for information about account termination. Other countries may have different minimum age limits, and if you are below the minimum age for providing consent for data collection in your country, you may not use Doorframe without obtaining your parents' or legal guardians' consent.
We do not intentionally collect User Personal Information that is stored in your repositories or other free-form content inputs. Information in your repositories belongs to you, and you are responsible for it, as well as for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Any personal information within a user's repository is the responsibility of the repository owner.
Doorframe employees do not access private repositories unless required to for security reasons, to assist the repository owner with a support matter, or to maintain the integrity of the service. Our Terms of Service provides more details. Doorframe as a service will use tools that parse your repository contents for the purposes of generating and displaying requirements documentation generated through Doorstop. This process is automatic and does not involve employees of Doorframe inspecting your repository content unless to provide for the already mentioned purpose of maintaining Doorframe's service.
If your repository is public, anyone (including us and unaffiliated third parties) may be able to view its contents. If you have included private or sensitive information in your public repository, such as email addresses or passwords, that information may be indexed by search engines or used by third parties.
We do share User Personal Information with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested or communicate on your behalf. For example, if you purchase an integration or other Developer Product from our Marketplace, we will share your account name to allow the integrator to provide you services. Additionally, you may indicate, through your actions on Doorframe, that you are willing to share your User Personal Information. For example, if you join an organization, the owner of the organization will have the ability to view your activity in the organization's access log. We will respect your choices.
We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes, except where you have specifically told us to (such as by buying an integration from Marketplace).
We do not host advertising on Doorframe. We may occasionally embed content from third party sites, such as YouTube, and that content may include ads. While we try to minimize the amount of ads our embedded content contains, we can't always control what third parties show. Any advertisements on individual Doorframe Pages or in Doorframe repositories are not sponsored by, or tracked by, Doorframe.
We do not disclose User Personal Information outside Doorframe, except in the situations listed in this section or in the section below on Compelled Disclosure.
We do share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how our users, collectively, use Doorframe, or how our users respond to our other offerings, such as conferences or events. However, we do not sell this information to advertisers or marketers.
We do share aggregated, non-personally identifying information with third parties. For example in the event of a security incident, we may share the number of times a particular file was accessed.
We may share User Personal Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of User Personal Information, and we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your User Personal Information. The organization receiving any User Personal Information will have to honor any promises we have made in our Privacy Statement or in our Terms of Service.
Much of Doorframe is public-facing. If your content is public-facing, third parties may access and use it in compliance with our Terms of Service, such as by viewing your profile or repositories or pulling data via our API. We do not sell that content; it is yours. However, we do allow third parties, such as research organizations or archives, to compile public-facing Doorframe information. Other third parties, such as data brokers, have been known to scrape Doorframe and compile data as well.
Your User Personal Information, associated with your content, could be gathered by third parties in these compilations of Doorframe data. If you do not want your User Personal Information to appear in third parties’ compilations of Doorframe data, please do not make your personal information publicly available on GitHub or in your repositories.
If you would like to compile Doorframe data, you must comply with our Terms of Service regarding scraping and privacy, and you may only use any public-facing User Personal Information you gather for the purpose for which our user has authorized it. For example, where a Doorframe user has made an email address public-facing for the purpose of identification and attribution, do not use that email address for commercial advertising. We expect you to reasonably secure any User Personal Information you have gathered from Doorframe, and to respond promptly to complaints, removal requests, and "do not contact" requests from Doorframe or Doorframe users.
Similarly, projects on Doorframe may include publicly available User Personal Information collected as part of the collaborative process. In the event that a Doorframe project contains publicly available personal information that does not belong to Doorframe users, we will only use that personal information for the limited purpose for which it was collected, and we will secure that personal information as we would secure any User Personal Information. If you have a complaint about any personal information on Doorframe, please see our section on resolving complaints.
If you're already a Doorframe user, you may access, update, alter, or delete your basic user profile information by editing your GitHub user profile or contacting support. You can control the information we collect about you by limiting what information is in your GitHub profile, by updating out of date information, or by contacting support.
If Doorframe processes information about you and you do not have an account, such as information Doorframe receives from third parties, then you may access, update, alter, delete, or object to the processing of your personal information by contacting support.
As a Doorframe User, you can always take your data with you. Doorframe stores all information in your GitHub git repositories as data used by Doorstop and will follow your repository wherever you move it. Doorframe serves only as means to view, edit, and collaborate on these files in a cohesive way and does not store any data related to your actual requirements documents that can not be reconstituted from your GitHub repositories.
Generally, Doorframe will retain User Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.
We may retain certain User Personal Information indefinitely, unless you delete it or request its deletion. For example, we don’t automatically delete inactive user accounts, so unless you choose to delete your account, we will retain your account information indefinitely.
If you would like to cancel your account or delete your User Personal Information, you may do so by removing DOORFRAME.io from your Authorized GitHub Apps. Additionally if you wish to remove a repository from Doorframe you can do so on your GitHub user's Installed Github Apps page or on your Organizations Installed GitHub Apps page by either removing a specific repository or uninstalling the Doorframe App altogther.
After an account has been deleted, certain data, such as contributions to other users' repositories and comments in others' issues, will remain. However, we will delete or deidentify your personal information, including your user name and email address, from the author field of issues and comments by associating them with a ghost account.
The email address you have supplied via your Git commit settings will always be associated with your commits in the Git system. If you chose to make your email address private, you should also update your Git commit settings. We are unable to change or delete data in the Git commit history — the Git software is designed to maintain a record — but we do enable you to control what information you put in that record.
We provide a web page on cookies and tracking that describes the cookies we set, the needs we have for those cookies, and the types of cookies they are (temporary or permanent). It also lists our third party analytics providers and subprocessors, and details exactly which parts of our website we permit them to track.
We use a number of third party analytics and service providers to help us evaluate our users' use of Doorframe; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance. We only use these third party analytics providers on certain areas of our website, and all of them have signed data protection agreements with us that limit the type of personal information they can collect and the purpose for which they can process the information. In addition, we use our own internal analytics software to provide features and improve our content and performance.
Some browsers have incorporated "Do Not Track" (DNT) features that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Doorframe responds to browser DNT signals and follows the W3C standard for responding to DNT signals. If you have not enabled DNT on a browser that supports it, cookies on some parts of our website will track your online browsing activity on other online services over time, though we do not permit third parties other than our analytics and service providers to track Doorframe users' activity over time on Doorframe.
Doorframe takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect User Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of User Personal Information.
Doorframe enforces a written security information program. Our program:
In the event of a data breach that affects your User Personal Information, we will act promptly to mitigate the impact of a breach and notify any affected users without undue delay.
Transmission of data on Doorframe is encrypted using SSH, HTTPS, and SSL/TLS, and git repository content is encrypted at rest.
No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
We store and process the information that we collect in the United States in accordance with this Privacy Statement (our subprocessors may store and process data outside the United States). However, we understand that we have users from different countries and regions with different privacy expectations, and we try to meet those needs even when the United States does not have the same privacy framework as other countries'.
We provide a high standard of privacy protection — as described in this Privacy Statement — to all our users around the world, regardless of their country of origin or location, and we are proud of the levels of notice, choice, accountability, security, data integrity, access, and recourse we provide.
In particular: - Doorframe provides clear methods of unambiguous, informed consent at the time of data collection, when we do collect your personal information using consent as a basis. - We collect only the minimum amount of personal information necessary for our purposes, unless you choose to provide more. We encourage you to only give us the amount of data you are comfortable sharing. - We offer you simple methods of accessing, correcting, or deleting the User Personal Information we have collected. - We provide our users notice, choice, accountability, security, and access, and we limit the purpose for processing. We also provide our users a method of recourse and enforcement.
Doorframe may disclose personally-identifying information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant, or similar government order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.
In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, Doorframe strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify users of any disclosure of their information, unless we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in rare, exigent circumstances.
We will use your email address to communicate with you, if you've said that's okay, and only for the reasons you’ve said that’s okay. For example, if you contact our Support team with a request, we will respond to you via email.
By design, the Git version control system associates many actions with a user's email address, such as commit messages. We are not able to change many aspects of the Git system. This will not change how we contact you, but it will affect how others see you.
Depending on your email settings, Doorframe may occasionally send notification emails about changes in a repository you’re watching, new features, requests for feedback, important policy changes, or offer customer support. We also send marketing emails, based on your choices and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. There's an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each of the marketing emails we send you. Please note that you can not opt out of receiving important communications from us, such as emails from our Support team or system emails, but you can configure your notifications settings in your profile.
Our emails might contain a pixel tag, which is a small, clear image that can tell us whether or not you have opened an email and what your IP address is. We use this pixel tag to make our email more effective for you and to make sure we’re not sending you unwanted email.
If you have concerns about the way Doorframe is handling your User Personal Information, please let us know immediately. We want to help. You may email us directly at email@example.com with the subject line "Privacy Concerns." We will respond promptly — within 45 days at the latest.
In the unlikely event that a dispute arises between you and Doorframe regarding our handling of your User Personal Information, we will do our best to resolve it. If you are a resident of an EU member state, you have the right to file a complaint with your local supervisory authority.
Doorframe is subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC).
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Doorframe may change our Privacy Statement from time to time. We will provide notification to Users of material changes to this Privacy Statement through our Website at least 30 days prior to the change taking effect by posting a notice on our home page or sending email to the primary email address specified in your Doorframe account.
