3. Data Protection Measures

Smingle offers a comprehensive suite of development tools encompassing a web application, browser extensions, and desktop and mobile applications. Our data management strategy involves both cloud-based and local storage solutions, with a significant portion of our data processing occurring directly on the user's device for enhanced security and efficiency.

The cloud-based components of Smingle are powered by Firebase, a robust platform that manages user authentication, authorization, database operations, and secure data storage. Firebase adheres to rigorous standards, including ISO 27001, guaranteeing that data handling processes meet international security and privacy benchmarks.

Through our integration with Firebase, we ensure that all data, whether in transit between systems or at rest in storage, is encrypted. This dual approach to data security, combining local processing with the secure cloud infrastructure provided by Firebase, ensures that Smingle's services are both efficient and secure, safeguarding user data against unauthorized access and breaches.

For detailed information on Firebase's Privacy and Security protocols, you're encouraged to consult the official Firebase documentation and resources. These materials provide comprehensive insights into how Firebase safeguards data, including its adherence to international security standards, encryption practices for data in transit and at rest, as well as its compliance with privacy regulations. This valuable information can be found on the Firebase website under their Privacy and Security section.

4. Handling of Personal Data

Personal Data Storage:
Smingle maintains a minimal set of personal information, precisely the user's email address, name as provided during registration, and geographical details like the country and continent where the account was initiated.

User Authentication:
We employ Firebase Authentication to verify user identities, ensuring secure access to our services.

Cloud Data Storage:
We leverage Firebase Cloud Storage for housing all documents uploaded by users to Smingle, as well as for storing our data backups to ensure reliability and accessibility.

To facilitate necessary backend processing, we utilize Cloud Functions for Firebase. This processing occurs precisely where the documents are stored, maintaining efficiency and data integrity.

For managing administrative data, Smingle uses the Firebase Realtime Database, which notably does not contain any personal user information. Importantly, this database is hosted within the European Union, aligning with stringent data protection regulations.
