Introduction: At Read, we take your privacy seriously and are committed to protecting the personal information you provide to us. This Privacy Policy sets forth the types of information we collect, how that information is used and protected, and with whom it may be shared.

Digitaal Toegankelijk BV (“we”, “our”, or “us”) operates the Read Easy service, which includes an API, Word Add-in, Outlook Add-in, and a Chrome Extension (collectively referred to as the “Service”). This Privacy Policy informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information when you use our Service.

Data Storage and Processing

We use Firebase, a service provided by Google, to store user and account data. We do not store any other data in Firebase.

We use the OpenAI API to help analyze and process text to make it more understandable for people with low literacy and reading skills. The data processed by OpenAI is subject to their privacy policy, which can be found here:

  1. OpenAI will not use data submitted by customers via their API to train or improve their models, unless you explicitly decide to share your data with Open AI for this purpose.
  2. Any data sent through the API will be retained for abuse and misuse monitoring purposes for a maximum of 30 days, after which it will be deleted (unless otherwise required by law).

Use of Google Analytics on our website : We use Google Analytics on our website to help us understand how our service is being used. Google Analytics collects information such as your IP address, browser type, and the pages you visit on our site.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
