At Quantyst®, we are committed to protecting the privacy of your personal information. It’s yours, it matters to you, and we get that. This Privacy Policy is to let you know what information we use and collect from users of quantyst.com and other Quantyst URLs and websites (collectively, the “Sites”), the Quantyst software platform (“Quantyst Platform”), any of our services (“Services”), and on behalf of our clients. The Sites and the Quantyst Platform shall be included in the definition of Services for purposes of this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy applies to Personal Information that is processed by Quantyst in the course of offering and operating the Services. This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Quantyst Terms of Service (“the “Terms”). By using our Sites or Services, you expressly agree to Quantyst’s collection, storage, use, processing and disclosure of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.


Quantyst has taken steps in an effort to comply with the EU GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (“GDPR”) as set forth by the Council of the European Union and European Parliament, which becomes enforceable May 25, 2018, regarding the collection, use, transmission, processing, and retention of personal identifiable data of natural persons from European Union member countries. The GDPR is meant to strengthen the security and protection of personal data and to harmonize data protection laws throughout the EU.

What this means is that we at Quantyst are committed to protecting your data in a secure and transparent manner. Quantyst processes, uses, and exchanges personal data for our legitimate business purposes only in the limited uses described herein.

The Quantyst Platform only requires basic personal information from our users, such as name and email address, to facilitate user management, usage monitoring and provide our Services. Such data is stored in the Quantyst Platform infrastructure as well as with external vendors to the extent necessary to provide Quantyst’s Services. Quantyst does not use personal information for any purpose outside of providing the Services as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Please include your full name, email address associated with your Account, and a detailed description of your data request. Such requests will be processed in line with local laws.

Although Quantyst makes good faith efforts to provide Individuals with access to their personal information, there may be circumstances in which Quantyst is unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the Individual’s privacy in the case in question, where the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, or where it is commercially proprietary. If Quantyst determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, Quantyst will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your personal information.


Quantyst retains the personal information we receive as described in this Privacy Policy for as long as you use our Services or as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected, provide our Services, resolve disputes, establish legal defenses, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes, enforce our agreements, and comply with applicable laws.


We take your security seriously and take reasonable steps to protect and secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure, including through secure sockets layer, password protection and, for certain transmissions to our Services, encryption. Any information collected by Quantyst is stored on servers that Quantyst manages, using standard security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information. Although we take reasonable security measures to protect your personal information, please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, Quantyst cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Sites or Services and you do so at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Services.
