We NEVER sell your data to anyone.
Seeda considers data protection and privacy to be of paramount importance. We never sell Personal Data and we carry out all processing operations in compliance with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) (specifically but not limited to Article 6(1)(b) to (f) and Article 28) and other applicable global privacy and data protection laws including the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) (collectively, the “Applicable Law”).
Responsibility for Processing Personal Data
Seeda bears the responsibility for lawfully processing your data as carried out on our site.
What kind of Personal Data is collected and/or processed, and for what purpose?
When you visit our site, the website from which you visited us, the parts of our site you visit, the date and duration of your visit, and information from the device (device type, operating system, language, the country you are located in, and web browser type) you used during your visit. While we process your IP address during the duration of your session, the IP address is completely deleted before it is ever written to disk on our servers.
We process this usage data to facilitate your access to our Services (e.g. to adjust our Services to the device you are using) and to recognize and stop any misuse which is in our legitimate interest. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. We also process usage data in an aggregated or de-identified form for statistical purposes and to improve our site.
Seeda's tracking technology is free of cookies.
Contact us via email
On our site, you have the opportunity to contact us to ask us questions, for example via the contact form, where we ask you for your contact information (e.g. email address). We use this data solely in connection with answering the queries we receive. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
You may deactivate your Seeda account and/or unsubscribe from receiving content or offers from us at any time. Following termination of your account, we may retain your personal data (in part or in whole) in order to meet any regulatory and reporting requirements for the timeframes stipulated by law and in order to be able to address customer service issues. Any other personal data we would have been processing on your behalf would be deleted permanently within 30 calendar days.
Use of De-Identified and Aggregated Information
We may use Personal Data and other data about you to create de-identified and aggregated information, including de-identified demographic information, de-identified location information, information about the computer or device from which you access our Services or other analyses we create.
Your data is protected under Seeda's and our tool partners' privacy policies, with complete rights to the collected data.
Access and Disclosure to Third Parties
Seeda does not sell and has not sold, consumers’ Personal Data at any time. Except as provided below, we also do not share or disclose your Personal Data.
We use a select number of trusted external service providers for certain technical data analysis, processing and/or storage offerings (e.g., IT and related services). These service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and security standards. We only share information with them that is required for the services offered and we contractually bind them to keep any information we share with them as confidential and to process Personal Data only according to our instructions. In addition to services providers, other categories of third parties may include:
To the extent that this is necessary in order to make use of certain services requiring special expertise (such as legal, accounting or auditing services) we may share your personal data with vendors of such services or public institutions that offer them (e.g. courts). The legal basis of this data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
Disclosures to Protect Us or Others.
We may access, preserve, and disclose any information we store associated with you to external parties if we, in good faith, believe doing so is required or appropriate to: comply with law enforcement or national security requests and legal processes, such as a court order or subpoena; to protect your, our or others’ rights, property, or safety; enforce our policies or contracts; collect amounts owed to us; or to assist with an investigation or prosecution of suspected or actual illegal activity; depending on the concrete issue, the legal basis for such processing may be Art. 6(1)(b), (c) or (f) GDPR.
Disclosure in the Event of Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers.
If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, purchase or sale of assets, or transition of service to another provider, then your information may be sold or transferred as part of such a transaction, as permitted by law and/or contract. The legal basis for such processing would be Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR as such processes are in the legitimate interest of Seeda.
Other than the cases mentioned above, we will only pass your data on to third parties without your express consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR or if we are obliged to do so by statutory law or an instruction by a public authority or court as outlined in our Terms of Service.

All other data as specified above will be retained for as long as is necessary for the purpose(s) for which we originally collected it or to provide our Services, resolve disputes, establish legal defences, conduct audits, pursue legitimate business purposes, and enforce our agreements. We may also retain information as required by law.
