It’s entirely possible we haven’t met yet. Or, perhaps you’ve already dropped us a line or are thinking about doing it. Or, in some other way, shared a piece of information about you and have not come to terms with what this means. Be that as it may, we are very grateful for your trust. And promise that we will not spend a single byte of your invaluable information on anything but on making your interaction with us as valuable and fruitful as possible.
Below is the document which sheds light on how we collect information, why we do it, and what you will get. Please check it out, and then we go.
General Provisions and Basic Objectives
We understand that mutual trust is the only way to get a good thing going. That’s why PieSoft has developed this Privacy Statement. We respect your personal data and your privacy rights. And we will continue to uphold this clear vision of how to build a company-consumer relationship based on transparency, clarity, and predictability. We also inform you that we may apply new approaches to personal data processing, and all these changes will be reflected in this Privacy Note update.
Scope of this Policy
How we collect information and what we use it for
When you use our Site, we may collect the Personal Information you chose to share with us. For example, in the Contact Us section, you provide us with your contact information. Our Services may use third-party analytics and advertising cookies to understand your intentions better and organize our work to meet your expectations and business needs fully. The information collected may include, for example, time of visit, pages visited, referring site details, your country, platform type, etc. If you want to opt-out, you may download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add On for your web browser.
When you go to our contact page on the Website, you are asked to fill out the contact form and provide some basic information about yourself. This information is then stored in our CRM Database and later may be used to contact you regarding the issues you mentioned in the request or for marketing purposes (see Marketing). Contact form data come to our Sales Team.
Cookies and analytics
Before we get into that, let’s just see if we are on the same page regarding this issue. A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded to your device when you access a website. It serves as a unique identifier and helps us distinguish you from other users. When you open our Website next time, cookies stored on your device are sent back to the analytical centers (Google Analytics, Facebook, or any other sources we’d like to use) so that we can say, “Hello, nice to see you again.” Not personally, of course, because there are no personal data in cookies.
Types of cookies we use
- Analytics Cookies – these cookies collect aggregated information about user behavior on the Site and do not contain information that may lead to your identification. The data we get with the help of Analytics Cookies are anonymous and are only used to provide statistical information about our Website as a whole.

And again, there’s always the possibility to download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add On for your web browser. So, it is all up to you!
Disclosure to Third Parties
This Website is located in the US, North Virginia, and all data collection happens here. PieSoft development center is situated in Eastern Europe. The data collected by PieSoft may be transferred to our offices. PieSoft relies on derogations for specific situations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR. In particular, PieSoft collects and transfers personal data to the different offices only:
- with your consent;
- to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of PieSoft in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.
Security of your information
Piesoft maintains physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to protect the privacy of the data you choose to share with us on our Site. We continually update and test our security technology. In addition, we train our employees on the importance of maintaining the privacy and security of our users’ information.
As described earlier, PieSoft collects and uses your personal data for marketing purposes as well. Your data will be stored in our CRM Database. We will use your data to contact you regarding the issues you mentioned in the Request Form. We may use your data to inform you about PieSoft products and services we think may be of your interest and send you our newsletters. But don’t worry, we won’t be intrusive. You can always opt-out of our special attention by clicking on the “unsubscribe” or “opt-out” link in the marketing emails PieSoft sends you or by using the relevant opt-out mechanism for non-email-based marketing (addressing our contact person, for example).
For statistical purposes, we collect information about your response to our emails and interaction with you to make decisions on future marketing. Please address our contact person if you want us to stop collecting and using this information.
Data subject rights
You can always opt-out of disclosing information to us. You may change your browser settings to accept or reject cookies or open a “private browsing” / “incognito” session to avoid using cookies. In that case, you may still use our Website, but some access to functionality may be restricted.
Data storage and retention
We don’t have a retention period for your data collected from contact forms on this Website. We keep it to be able to reach you when we have something relevant to your initial request.
The retention period for our web server logs is set to 3 days.
The retention period for the collection at this Website by third-party providers (Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Analytics, etc.) is set by them. It is subject to their terms and privacy policies.
Your data protection rights
According to US data protection law, you have the following data protection rights, which you are entitled to exercise by contacting PieSoft on the contact details provided under the “Contact Details” heading below and in the right-hand side column:
- If you wish to access, correct, update or request the deletion of your personal information, you can do it anytime by contacting PieSoft.
- You have the right to object at any time to processing your personal data or request portability of your personal information by contacting PieSoft.
- You can opt-out of marketing communications that PieSoft sends you at any time using the relevant opt-out mail or non-email marketing mechanisms.

If your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, PieSoft may charge a reasonable fee to deal with the request or refuse to provide information at all. In most cases, we respond to all legitimate requests within 40 calendar days of receiving them. Occasionally, it may take longer if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of queries. In this case, PieSoft will notify you and keep you updated.
