We may get that information from You or our partners, through contracts or other legal arrangements You have with us or our partners on behalf of us, in order to deliver contractual/legal obligations. In other cases, we will get that information from You with your permission and consent, or we may receive your Personal Data from third parties who You have given consent to pass this information on to us.

Notice to End Users
Many of our Services are intended for use by organizations. Where the Services are made available to you through an organization (e.g., your employer), that organization is the administrator of the Services and is responsible for controlling the access. If this is the case, please direct your data privacy questions to your administrator, as your use of the Services is subject to that organization’s policies.
Administrators are able to:
- restrict your access to the Services and therefore restrict your ability to edit, modify or delete your Personal Data; and
- access, modify and remove the information about you.
Even if the Services are not currently administered or made available to you by an organization, if you use an email address provided by an organization (such as your work email address) to access the Services, then the owner of the domain associated with your email address (e.g. your employer) may assert administrative control over your account and your use of the Services at a later date.
If you do not want an administrator to be able to assert control over your account and your use of the Services, please use your personal email address to register for or access the Services.
Please contact your organization or refer to your administrator’s organizational policies for more information.

How Long Do We Store Your Data
We store data for varying lengths of time depending on the circumstances:
- Information You share on the Services. (e.g., checklist item text and end-user’s Atlassian account ID, which does not constitute a Personal Data, under which a checklist item was created, added, unchecked or inserted) is stored until the end- user, who modified or created the text (or any other authorized user), deletes that text and all related information.
- If Your account is deactivated, terminated, or disabled, all data and content You have provided or that has been provided on or through your account will remain active and accessible for as long as necessary to allow Your team members or other users to make full use of the Services.
- After uninstalling the App, We store data for ninety (90) days to make sure it is there if you want to renew subscription and start using the Service again. If you want us to remove the data earlier, please follow the procedure provided below.
Data Stored In Our Apps
Our downloaded Apps store all information in the Atlassian Jira server product where they are installed. All data is located in your IT system (server or data center) that hosts the Atlassian Jira server product.
No information stored on the installation IT system is made available to Us when You download, install, or use the Apps. The Apps do not transmit data from your IT system or from the end-user’s web browser to us or to any third-party.
Data About You We Store or Transfer
In the case of SaaS/Cloud Apps, We primarily store and process the data or information you provide in the United States of America, it being understood that we do not store any of your Personal Data. Furthermore, in the case of SaaS/Cloud Apps, your Personal Data will never be transferred, out of the host application (Jira) and browser, to us or to any other third-party.
However, in the case of downloadable Apps, the information will be stored on Your systems and servers, wherever Your systems and servers are located.
What If You Chose Not To Give Us Your Personal Data?
If the Personal Data is necessary in order to supply products or services to You under a contract between You and HeroCoders, then we will not enter into that contract or provide the services or goods if You do not give us Your Personal Data.
HeroCoders will respect your legal rights to your data.
As a processor of Personal Data, we will assist our customers and end users with responding to individual rights requests that they receive under the GDPR. In many cases, customers may be able to address these types of requests by logging into the applicable product and using settings available within such product or your account.
