5.1. Personal Information which relates to Permitted Users
Permitted Users are those individuals who have opened an account to use our services and use our Services on behalf of our Customers, such as Customers’ employees or contractors.

- Any Non-personal Information connected or linked to or associated with any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information, as long as such connection, linkage or association exists.
Personal Information which is provided by the Permitted Users.
- Opening an Account: Personal Information is collected from the details the Permitted Users provide when opening an account in order to use the Services: full name, business email address, position in the company (e.g., CEO, HR, manager), phone number and country of residence. Permitted Users may also, voluntarily, provide a profile picture for their account. Additional information may be requested in the future.
- Use of Social Network Accounts: alternatively, Permitted Users may sign up to the Services via one of their existing social network accounts (e.g. GitHub or Google). When registering to the Service through such existing third-party accounts, then such third-party accounts provide us with access to certain information, which is detailed and displayed in the notice which appears during the integration process, which may include the Permitted User’s name, email address, profile photo and user-id on such account. Please read such notices carefully in order to understand what information is made available to us via such third-party accounts.

In order to use Currents’s Services, Customers and Permitted Users may upload certain Personal Information pertaining to third parties, such as the Customer’s clients, to the Services (the Customer Content).

Personal Information included in the Customer Content may be recorded in the outputs produced as a result of the use of the Services, such as in screenshots, HTML files, element locate data, element locate results and runtime console logs.
Please note that the Customer Content (including Personal Information) collected as part of your use of the Services, may be accessed by our IT team, support team, customer success team, R&D team and/or by our account managers, worldwide, solely in order to provide our Services to our Customers and to fulfill our contractual obligations towards our Customers.

Note to Permitted Users located in the EU
Please note that all Personal Information included in any Customer Content uploaded to the Services is processed in order to provide our Services to our Customers and to fulfill our contractual obligations towards our Customers. However, as a ‘data processor’, Currents is not legally obligated to determine the legal basis for processing such data, and it is each Customer’s responsibility, in its capacity as a ‘data controller’, to determine the lawful basis for enabling Currents to process such data.
In order for Currents to process Personal Information relating to Permitted Users, as detailed herein, such processing must be justified by a “basis” for processing, as follows:
- the processing is necessary to comply with legal obligations – we may process your Personal Information for disclosure of information to authorities and to maintain data processing records and general administrative purposes, as required by legal obligations that apply to us; and
- the processing is in our legitimate interests – subject to your interests and fundamental rights, we shall perform the Personal Information processing activities described herein under our legitimate interest in: (i) marketing our products and services, including our legitimate interest in performing online advertising campaigns and sending advertisements, updates, notices, announcements and additional information related to Currents and the Services; (ii) offering comfortable and safe access to our Website and Services, (iii) conducting internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and statistical purposes, Services and the Currents’s AI engine; (iv) personalizing the Services and ensuring that Currents provides the best Services to its Customers, (v) ensuring that the Services are safe and secured against fraudulent and criminal activity; and (vi) managing our internal operations, maintaining records and email tracking. Where we rely on legitimate interests as a lawful basis, we will carry out a balancing test to ensure that your interests, rights and freedoms do not override our legitimate interests.
Note to non-EU Permitted Users:
BY ENTERING, CONNECTING TO, ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS SPECIFIED HEREIN.
