This is fundamental to the way we work and we’re committed to providing a secure environment for you to store your personal information.

THIS IS WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We use the information you provide to us to:
• enable us to provide the Services;
• ensure that content from our Website is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your device to achieve the most user-friendly navigation experience;
• defend our servers against malicious attacks.
Where we propose using your personal information for any other uses we will ensure that we notify you first. You will also be given the opportunity to withhold or withdraw your consent for the use of your personal information for purposes other than those listed above.
All users of the InChorus Platform are only ever identified for verification purposes, to prove that you are an employee, agent or consultant at a client organisation. Once we have verified that is the case your information is stored in separate tables, and databases, when necessary, from any Personal Data you input. The link between your Personal User Data and the identifying email address is hashed and encrypted.
Due to our strict adherence to the EU’s stringent GDPR legislation we hold the email identifier for your benefit; should you ever decide you would like to delete any data you have inputted, we can do that by decrypting the link between your email address and Personal Data - this link can only be made when you correctly answer questions about the specifics of the data originally entered, i.e. only you can unlock the encryption, were it ever necessary. Clever hey!
Your anonymity was our priority, and we built a system that ensures that. We are a solution that has not added security layers and strict data policies to existing software, we were designed and built with those considerations as instrumental cornerstones of what we went on to build.
All data is encrypted using OpenSSL to provide AES-256 and AES-128 encryption. We use 2 factor authentication for any access to the product, either as a User or Client, and, finally, we continuously work with experts to test our technology in order to find & address any security vulnerabilities.
OUR USE OF AGGREGATED AND ANONYMISED INFORMATION
We may share anonymised usage data which does not identify you specifically with third parties. We may combine your data with those of other users of our Website and share this information in aggregated and anonymised form with third parties to help us improve the design and delivery of our software tools, increasing the effectiveness for all users.
Our Services allow you to anonymously tag incidents of bias that you may have experienced in your organisation. We may share anonymised data with your organisation on the type of incident including where it occurred, what occurred, when it occurred, but we do not share your name or other personal identifiers.
The purpose of anonymously sharing the data is to allow your organisation to improve upon and kick off data-driven initiatives, ultimately resulting in a happier, healthier and more successful organisation.
We will never share your work email address, nor any part of your name that is within your work email address, for they are encrypted and stored completely separately from the anonymous, aggregated, and broad data we share with your employers. And of equal importance, we never take the names of the perpetrator, and therefore this can never be shared, completely maintaining your safety and security in the workplace when utilising the InChorus Platform.
