Legal Bases for Processing Information
Various global privacy laws (such as those in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, and Brazil) require that we have a “legal basis” to process your information. The legal bases on which we rely to process your information include:
- Consent. You have consented to the use of your information, for example, where legally required, to send you marketing communications.
- Contractual necessity. We need your information to provide you with the Services, for example to facilitate your registration and respond to your inquiries.
- Compliance with a legal obligation. We have a legal obligation to use your information, for example to comply with tax and accounting obligations.
- Legitimate interests. We have a legitimate interest in using your information for a business purpose that does not override your individual rights and interests. For example, we have a legitimate interest in using your information for product development and internal analytics purposes, and otherwise to improve the safety, security, and performance of our Services.
How We Share the Information We Collect
We share information with the following categories of third parties.
Service Providers. We may share any information we receive with vendors retained in connection with the provision of our Services and that process your information on our behalf. These entities may include analytics, billing, legal support, marketing, security, and fraud prevention companies.
Third Party App Integrations. If you connect a third-party application to our Services, we may share information such as code with that third party.
As Required by Law and Similar Disclosures. We may access, preserve, and disclose your information if we believe in good faith that doing so is required or appropriate to: (a) comply with law enforcement requests and legal process, such as a court order or subpoenas; (b) respond to your requests; or (c) protect your, our, or others’ rights, property, or safety. For the avoidance of doubt, the disclosure of your information may occur if you post any objectionable content on or through the Services.
Merger, Sale, or Other Asset Transfers. We may disclose and transfer your information to service providers, advisors, potential transactional partners, or other third parties in connection with the consideration, negotiation, or completion of a corporate transaction in which we are acquired by or merged with another company or we sell, liquidate, or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.
Consent. We may also disclose information from or about you with your permission.
Your Rights and Choices
Sharing Preferences. If you prefer to not have others see your code, you can upgrade to our “Hacker Plan” and, when you are creating a new repl, select the choice to make it private. If you import code from GitHub and your repository is public, it will remain public by default on Replit. If you wish to import code from GitHub and your repository is private, you can do so by upgrading to a Hacker Plan, in which case your code will remain private on Replit.
Marketing Communications. You can unsubscribe from our promotional emails via the link provided in the emails. Even if you opt-out of receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive administrative messages from us.
How to Block Cookies. You can change your browser settings to block, disable, or notify you when you receive a Cookie, delete Cookies, or browse our Services using your browser’s anonymous usage setting. However, if you use your browser settings to block all Cookies (including essential Cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our Services, or some portions of the Services may not function properly.
Your European Privacy Rights. If you are located in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, you have the additional rights described below.
- You may request access to the information we maintain about you, update and correct inaccuracies in your information, restrict or object to the processing of your information, have the information anonymized or deleted, as appropriate, or exercise your right to data portability to easily transfer your information to another company (where technically feasible). In addition, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, including in your country of residence, place of work or where an incident took place.
- You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us regarding the processing of your information, at any time and free of charge. We will apply your preferences going forward and this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before you withdrew your consent.
We take measures to delete your information or maintain it in a de-identified form when it is no longer necessary to be kept in identifiable form for the purposes for which we process it, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the specific retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of service provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, and mandatory retention periods provided by applicable law and any statute of limitations. When you request to delete your account, we delete your data within 30 days.
We use a variety of technical, organizational, and physical safeguards designed to safeguard the information we maintain. However, as our Services are hosted electronically, we can make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information.
Children’s and Students’ Privacy
FERPA protects “personally identifiable information” contained in students’ education records from unauthorized disclosure. Consistent with FERPA, we will use education records, as defined under FERPA, for the purpose of providing agreed services to a school, school district or teacher. We use or share FERPA-protected information only as directed or permitted by the school, school district, teacher, or under FERPA. If a parent or eligible student requests access to education records that are hosted on our servers, we will help facilitate such access. For more information, see our U.S. Student Data Protection Addendum and our Student Privacy Notice.
