Promotion of our Services.  We may use de-identified PI in order to market our Services, products and platforms, including delivering promotional materials, recommendations and other non-transactional commercial communications via email, post, telephone, SMS or push notifications.

Protection of our Services.  We may use your PI as part of our efforts to keep our Site safe and secure (for example, for fraud monitoring, identity theft and fraud prevention).

Aggregated Statistics.  We may use your PI to combine and anonymize information about your interactions with DCoding to create aggregate, anonymized statistics for use in research and for marketing, promoting, improving and developing our Services.

Enforce our Terms and Policies.  We may use your PI to protect our Services against misuse or abuse of our Services and ensure compliance with our Terms, including in relation to content our customers send or display through DCoding.

Respond to user inquiries/offer support to users.  We may use your information to respond to your inquiries and solve any potential issues you might have with the use of our Services.

Research and Development.  DCoding also will share de-identified data with select partners for research and product development.

Sending Promotional Communications.  We and our third-party marketing partners may use the personal information you send to us for our marketing purposes if this is in accordance with your marketing preferences. For example, when expressing an interest in obtaining information about us or our Site, subscribing to marketing or otherwise contacting us, we will collect personal information from you.

If you do not wish to disclose any or part of your PI to us, you may still be able to use some of the functionalities of our Site and Services, though we will not be able to guarantee that you will be able to enjoy them at their fullest if you elect not to disclose it to us.

  1. Information provided by Third Parties:

DCoding is designed to help your business connect with third parties in order to improve your ERP processes.  These integrations include accounting, tax filing, points of sale, manufacturing, logistics, customer lists and customer relations management.

Upon the case where you elect to input information about third parties onto DCoding, you must only do so if you have first obtained appropriate consent and authorization from such third parties, including having an appropriate legal basis for doing so as required under applicable law.

We may use your PI and the information of the companies or platforms you work with when you elect to sync a non-DCoding account or third party service with your DCoding account, and in such case we will receive information from that account/service according to your settings with that account/service.

In addition, we may use your PI and the information of the companies or platforms you work with when you elect to collect, process, store or disclose such information from other users using DCoding (e.g., your accountant, bookkeeper, tax preparer, affiliates and agents, your employer or other business customers).

  1. How We Disclose Personal Information:

For Machine Learning and Automated Processing

From time to time we may process your PI using automated and manual (human) methods.

Our automated methods include artificial intelligence (AI) and a range of technologies commonly called machine learning.

We provide you with personalized Services, and also recommendations and experiences designed to have our Services “learn” and “reason” to improve our ability to personalize and enhance your experience with DCoding.

To Business Successors

If our business is sold or merges in whole or in part with another business that would become responsible for providing our Services to you, we retain the right to transfer your PI to the new business.

The new business would retain the right to use your PI according to the terms of this Policy as well as to any changes to this privacy notice as instituted by the new business.  We will also retain the right to transfer your PI if our company files for bankruptcy and some or all of our assets are sold to another individual or business.

Lawful Disclosure

We reserve the right to disclose any or all gathered PI and/or data, when the following circumstances arise: (i) if necessary under an applicable law; (ii) in reply to a legal demand, warrant or subpoena from an agency of the law; (iii) to protect ourselves and our affiliates from any legal third party claims and procedures that may be brought to us (inclusive of takedown notices); and/or (iv) to prevent or cause cessation of any undertakings that may be construed by us as having the ability to be or cause a predicament or hazard to us.

This includes government agencies such as tax agencies, or as required institutional risk control programs.

We, or our affiliates, clients, contractors, licensors, officers, agents and/or representatives, will reserve the right to allow access to any of your PI when we think it is reasonably important or when you breach the terms mentioned in this Policy.

Vital Interests

We may disclose your PI where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding potential violations of our policies.

We may investigate suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person and illegal activities, or use PI as evidence in litigation in which we are involved.


  1. Disclosure to Third Party PI Processors:

In order to provide our Services, we use third-party platforms and tools that are governed by their own terms, policies and personal data collection practices and policies.  Accordingly, by acknowledging your consent to this Policy, you are also acknowledging being subject to the applicable terms and conditions of such third party platforms, which provide functionalities that include aggregated statistics.  Upon any conflict among our Policy and those of our sub-processors, the terms of them will prevail only insofar as the conflicting term(s).

In certain circumstances, there may be more than one data controller processing your PI.  In these situations, we act as an independent data controller over our PI processing activities – meaning that we make determinations over how your personal information will be processed independently from those of third party data controllers. 

Said other data controllers have their own obligations under applicable information privacy laws, and DCoding is not responsible for the processing of third party data controllers (including our own end-users) and you should contact them directly for any queries on how they process your personal information and for exercising your privacy rights in relation to such processing.

  1. Your Choices as Our User:

  1. Commercial Message Communications Authorization:

Occasionally, we will ask you for express permission and approval to receive electronic messages in electronic format which are then sent to an electronic address and that contains a message asking recipients to participate in commercial activities such as newsletters, purchase of products, services and invitations to participate in surveys.

We will send you service-related announcements on occasions when it is necessary to do so.  For instance, if our Service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, or a new enhancement is released, which will affect the way you use our services, we might send you an email notifying you.  Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are neither commercial nor promotional in nature.  

You have the right to object to the processing of your PI if grounds for said objection are to direct marketing.  You also have the right to opt out of receiving promotional communications at any time by: (i) contacting us; (ii) when we may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences if you instruct us to provide further the features and functionality of our Services; (iii) if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business.

We hereby remind you that you may have specific legal rights under we may, under HIPAA and HITECH rules, such as: (a) the right to request certain restrictions on uses and disclosures of your PHI; and (b) the right to inspect your PHI, with limited exceptions; and (c) the right to amend your PHI that you believe is incorrect or incomplete.
