What type of information do we collect?
Upon joining the waitlist or requesting access to Flowrite, we collect your email in order to notify you when you become eligible to use the service. We may also send you progress updates and/or newsletters from which you can opt-out of at any time.
After joining the waitlist or when registering to use Flowrite, we may ask you to provide further information beyond email – for example, your name and your current role in your workplace. We may also ask about your current usage of other similar tools and other general questions that will help us to personalize your experience and improve our service.
After having used Flowrite, we may ask you to provide feedback about your experience. We may ask, for example, about the things you liked and disliked about Flowrite, and whether you would recommend it to others. Your feedback will be stored securely and removed when no longer needed.
We may collect other information you knowingly provide to us on 3rd-party platforms, such as Flowrite's social media channels.

- You have the right to verify the accuracy of your information and to ask for it to be updated or corrected;
- You have the right to restrict the processing of your information – however, in that case, the services may not be available to you;
- You have the right to obtain the erasure of your personal information from us;
- You have the right to receive your information in a structured, commonly used format and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance.
