GrapheneDB only collects such Personal Data that is necessary for you to access and use our Services:
- Account Information
- This information may include your username, first and last name, email address, mailing address, and phone number.

We use a third-party service for secure credit card transaction processing, and we send billing information to that third-party to process your orders and credit card payments.

GrapheneDB will not sell or rent your Personal Data, but we do disclose your Personal Data to a limited set of trusted Third Parties in the situations explained below, for which you, by using Our Services, hereby explicitly consent.
We may disclose your Personal Data with a small number of Third Party Service Providers which provide important functions to us that allow us to provide you with a better service. For example, amongst others, we have providers that process our credit card transactions and support our internal support system, and manage Our marketing communications. By using GrapheneDB, you explicitly consent to, and authorize us to sub-contract in this manner.
We will obtain assurances that all third-party service providers will safeguard your personal data in accordance with this policy and European privacy laws.
We may disclose Personal Data if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on us, to protect or defend our rights or property or the rights or property of users of the Products, or to protect against fraud and reduce credit risk.
GrapheneDB’s primary data and servers are hosted at AWS data center in Frankfurt (EU).
GrapheneDB takes strong measures to protect any data that you have submitted to us, especially data that is personal in nature, including profile and financial information. We strive to protect data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

Under certain circumstances, you may have rights under applicable data protection laws in relation to your Personal Data.
Where applicable, you may have the right to:
- Request information about how we collect, process, use, and share your Personal Data (commonly known as a “right to know request”).
- Request access to your Personal Data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
- Request correction of the Personal Data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
- Request erasure of your Personal Data (commonly known as a “request to be forgotten”). This enables you to ask us to delete or remove Personal Data. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your Personal Data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your Personal Data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply in full with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
- Object to processing of your Personal Data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
- Request restriction of processing of your Personal Data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your Personal Data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
- Request the transfer of your Personal Data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your Personal Data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
You can exercise your data protection rights directly from our Services or by reaching out at firstname.lastname@example.org. We respond to all requests in accordance with European data protection laws.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as long as needed to provide you with our Services. We may also retain and use your information in order to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our Agreements.
At any time, you may exercise your rights of access, rectification, cancellation, and opposition to the processing of personal data by sending an email to the contact information below.
GrapheneDB’s primary data servers are hosted in AWS data centers, located in Frankfurt (EU).
We may share your personal data with a very limited number of third-party service providers in countries outside the EU to permit such parties to provide services that help us with our business activities.
As we do with all our third-party service providers, we will obtain assurances that they will safeguard your personal data in accordance with this policy and European privacy laws.
