INVISID - a brand of Deepsign GmbH - has made it its mission to help you improve email protection for senders and recipients. For this, we need personal information from you - there's no way around it. But we don't take this responsibility lightly. We are aware of the importance of privacy and your rights and want you to feel secure when using our services and interacting with us. We hope you love INVISID as much as we do, but if you do not agree with this policy, please do not use the INVISID website(s) or services.
Taking into account our license terms, which can be viewed here, and assuming your acknowledgment and consent, we provide further information on this topic in the following sections. We have tried to present the information as clearly as possible, but we are aware that it is a wealth of information. If you have any questions, please contact us by email.
This GDPR ("Notice") describes how INVISID collects, uses, and discloses your personal data. In this document, we will use some definitions to describe various products, roles, and relevant terms:
"Website" refers to all texts, data, information, software, graphics, photos, and more that we and our partners provide to you, as well as our websites (including the INVISID Help Center) and all services, extensions, plug-ins, software, or applications that we provide to you.
"Users" are the individuals who have created an INVISID account.
"Recipient" refers to individuals who receive a "certified" email from a user but may not be registered with INVISID.
"Reader" is a person who visits the website but may not or need not be a user or recipient.
This GDPR applies to personal data that INVISID collects when you visit or use our website, as described in the "Data Collected by Us" section of this GDPR below. INVISID is responsible for this personal data. This Privacy Notice does not apply to personal data that the user contributes when using the provided service, such as information that exists for a recipient to communicate with them via email (e.g., recipient's email address that the user owns/holds).
We process personal data as part of customer data on behalf of our customers as a processor or service provider. If you are a recipient and have questions about how your data is processed by our customers/users or if you wish to exercise your rights regarding this data, you must contact the customer/user who collected your data and uses it in our service.
If you contact us regarding personal data within customer data and are able to identify the company or user you interacted with, we will promptly inform the respective customer who collected your data about your request.
Information We Collect:
We collect information directly from you and automatically through your use of our website or application. Please note that we may not be able to provide certain parts of the services if you do not share certain personal data with us or refuse certain contact permissions. Usage capabilities will vary depending on the user (account holder) in the account settings or according to the subscription.
The service is only available to natural persons aged 16 or older (or the minimum age applicable in the respective jurisdiction). In paid subscriptions, even if you are under 16 years old and have an account from a recognized educational institution or within the family sharing.
The user may only use the service if the laws of Germany, the EU, or other applicable jurisdictions, including the laws of the country in which they are resident or from which they use the service, do not prohibit them from using the service. By agreeing to this agreement, the user assures that the foregoing has been understood and agrees to it.
Information Provided by You:A) Information Received from Third Parties: If you choose to connect your account with your account at a third-party service provider, we may receive information from this third-party service provider, including personal data, or be granted access to it. You can terminate the sharing of your information from a third-party service provider to us by removing our access to that service. INVISID processes this information on behalf of the user as a processor or service provider.
B) Users provide certain information to INVISID, including name, email address, username, age, country (of residence), and password when setting up their account. If you purchase a premium version of INVISID, we collect and store your billing address and credit card information (the last four digits of your credit card number, card type, and expiration date) for the third-party payment processor.
C) Marketing Information: Users, recipients, or viewers interested in INVISID services may contact us via the forms provided on the website and voluntarily provide information such as name, work email address, phone number, company, and position. Users, recipients, or viewers interested in our newsletter may also provide their names and email addresses to be added to our mailing list. We also receive other similar information you provide to us when participating in an event hosted by INVISID or its partners (such as webinars) and through your interactions with our social media accounts.
A) Log and Device Data: When you use INVISID, we and our authorized third parties may automatically record certain information ("log data"), including information your browser sends when you use our services or visit our website. This log data may include the web address you came from or are going to, your device model, operating system, browser type, unique device identifier, IP address, and timezone or approximate location. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on the type of device you are using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you are using a Mac or PC. To learn more about what information your device provides to us, please read your device manufacturer's or software provider's policies.
C) Usage Data: When you use our service as a user, we collect certain information about your typing behavior. For example, we collect information about typing behavior through the keyboard of your PC or MAC when you have activated the services in the browsers, so the necessary files (plugin and ADDON) are installed (legitimate interest in providing the service). We aggregate this information and use it to ensure the main functionality of the service (verification of biometric handwriting), to create the certificate, to monitor and improve the service, for example, to continuously improve the algorithms used.
How We Use Your Information:

Note on Third Party Links:
Our website may contain links to third-party websites and applications. Subject to your opt-out or consent preferences, we may also utilize advertisers, ad networks, and other advertising, marketing, and promotional companies from third parties to display advertisements on our website. Accessing and using such linked websites and applications is not subject to these notices, but rather to the privacy policies of these third parties. We do not endorse these parties, their content, or the products and services they offer, and we are not responsible for the information practices of these third-party websites or applications.
Security and Information Storage
Given the nature of communication and information processing technology, there is no guarantee that personal data is absolutely secure from access, alteration, or destruction through a breach of our physical, technical, and administrative security measures. As a cyber security service provider, we are acutely aware of this fact. For this reason, INVISID takes the security of your personal data very seriously. We work hard to protect the personal data you provide us from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, or disclosure, and we have taken appropriate steps to protect the personal data we collect. We have industry-recognized certifications and audits such as ISO/IEC 27001 in planning (not yet received);
You should also take measures to protect your device and account from unauthorized access, including choosing a unique and complex password known only to you or difficult to guess, and keeping your login and password secret. We are not responsible for lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for activities on your account due to unauthorized password activity.
We will retain the personal data we collect for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected, to comply with our contractual and legal obligations (including any legally mandated exceptions or exemptions), and for any applicable statutes of limitations for the assertion and defense of claims.
If you have any questions or comments about this notice or any other aspect of privacy, please contact us via email.
