This page provides information about how your use of a BEE service relates to the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR (GDPR – Official page, GDPR – Wikipedia page).
Some frequently asked questions are included at the bottom of the page.
BEE is a service of BEE Content Design, Inc., a Delaware corporation. BEE Content Design, Inc. acts as a Data Controller under the GDPR (for more information about data controllers & data processors, please click here). Specifically, below please find a description of how your personally identifiable information is handled when our services are used.
The entire BEE system infrastructure is hosted on Amazon Web Services (Ireland region), using multiple instances propagated inside multiple availability zones. The service has been built to scale and support a high number of concurrent sessions. Security of the hosting facilities is managed directly by Amazon (see https://aws.amazon.com/security/).
BEE Content Design, Inc. – which provides the BEE service – does not directly manage the AWS account, which is instead managed by its parent company. Specifically, BEE Content Design, Inc. is a business unit within Growens, which is publicly traded on the Italian stock exchange. Everything from internal security policies to the AWS account is managed directly by Growens. As a EU-based company, Growens is particularly committed to GDPR compliance: you can read more about its infrastructure and focus on GDPR compliance at https://www.mailup.com/gdpr-infrastructure/
When you use BEE Free – the free version of our drag-n-drop email and landing page editor available at https://beefree.io – we process as Data Controller your email address and message content when you use the “Send a test” feature. Please note that said feature is only intended for you to test the effectiveness of the e-mail template you created and shall not be used to send a test email to a recipient who is not you.
When you use BEE Pro – the email and landing page creation suite available at https://beefree.io/bee-pro/ – we process your name, your email address, your email message content, and your IP address. Additionally, we may also process additional users’ IP addresses and credentials to allow your collaborators to join your projects. Please note that the ‘Send a test’ feature included in the BEE Pro service is only intended for you to test the effectiveness of the e-mail template you created and shall not be used to send a test email to a recipient who is not you.
When you use BEE Plugin – i.e. you embed our visual editor inside your software applications – we may access and process as Data Controller your end-users’ IP addresses when they use the editor’s features within your application, to protect the security of our infrastructure.
In the provision of our services (BEE Free, BEE Pro, and BEE Plugin), we don’t process any of your personal data on your behalf. In fact, all data processed through the provision of our services are processed for our primary purposes and through our means and, therefore, according to the Guidelines 07/2020 on the concepts of controller and processor in the GDPR, we act as Data Controller, as explained in the previous sections of this page.
No, because we act as Data Controller. Please see the answer to the question immediately above for details.
