Privacy Policy

October 5, 2020

Myota, Inc., (“Myota”, the “Company”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) has created this Privacy Notice so you can understand how we will collect, use, disclose and protect information about you.

I. Scope of Privacy Notice:

Myota provides: (i) secure data storage; and (ii) monitoring and control of the stored data (the “Services”) in a Pre-Production Environment (“PPE”). The Services consist of two components: Myota Client and Myota Console. While using the PPE, users will store data in Myota’s Cloud Storage Environment (the “Storage Environment”).

Myota Client, which is an application installed on an employee’s device(s) enables a business to store data created by the employee with full encryption and distributed among multiple storage environments through use of proprietary “shred and spread” methodology.  Myota Console is a web-based service that allows the business organization to control and monitor backend storages from its employees. The Services in the PPE can be used by either a business (a “Business User”), who will provide access to Myota Client to a maximum of five (5) employees (“employee” or “End User”), or an individual subject matter expert (an “SME User”) that is testing the Services in either in the PPE.

This Privacy Notice describes how and when we collect, use and share your information related to the Services. For example, you send us information when you use our Services. When using any of our Services, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Privacy Notice. This includes any information you choose to provide that is deemed sensitive under applicable law.

This Privacy Notice applies to the use of the Services. By using the Services you consent to the privacy practices described in this Privacy Notice.

When this notice mentions “we” or “us,” it refers to Myota. When this notice mentions “you” or “your” it refers to the Business User, and its employees using the Services, and the SME User. You alone control and are responsible for how you use and share your information and other content you submit through the Services, as provided in the Terms of Use (“ToU”).

You authorize us to transfer, and store your data files in the United States, and any other country. In some of these countries, the privacy and data protection laws and rules regarding when government authorities may access data may vary from those in the country where you live.
