When we refer to “we” and “us”, we mean Enhancv R&D. which controls the information collected when you use our services on the Enhancv platform (also called "service", “product” within this document) to create your resume (or, as better known in other parts of the world, a CV) or any other document.
Keep in mind we never share the information you provide with third parties, except for chosen partners that are used for the purpose of providing you with a stable and enjoyable experience when using Enhancv. We have tried to outline here the main points of how these partners and third party services collect and use data, but for the most detailed and up-to-date information you should review their own privacy policies.
You always remain in control of your data. You may edit or erase your data from our services at any time or ask us to update or erase information we store, as long as this erasure is not in conflict with any legal obligations we may hold to national and international regulators.

Depending on your relationship with Enhancv, we’d collect different types of information, as outlined below.
What is it?
When visiting one of our domains, we will collect information about your interaction with the site, like pages you visit and specific actions you take like signing up or sharing one of our resume examples.
When using the Enhancv platform for creating your resume, we will collect information about the way our platform is used, including features used, resume sections used, number of resumes created, design elements used, etc. All information you knowingly include in your resume, including email, address, telephone number, is also stored in our database.
This information is collected in combination with data like user location, Internet browser type, device, operating system, your language preference, or the referring website you came to us through.
If, during the usage of Enhancv, you decide to take advantage of our Invite Friends feature and decide to invite friends by email, we will collect and store the email addresses of those friends in order to show you whether they have subscribed through your link or not, to provide you with the option of resending the invitation and to remind you which of your friends you’ve already invited. In all other cases when using the feature (e.g. sharing the link on social media or as a link in direct messaging platforms), we will only collect referral data, showing us a person came through your invite link, so that we can assign your earned credit.
How do we use it?
Usage information is used primarily in aggregate for statistical purposes. It helps us understand which parts of our product are of greatest interest and also provides information used to improve our platform and develop exciting new features. This information is shared with our third-party analytics services (including Google Analytics, Amplitude, Intercom and Attribution App). Those services operate either within the EU or in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield, ensuring the secure transfer of information.
Resume content is stored for the purpose of providing you with the primary service of Enhancv - creating, storing, displaying, and rendering your resume. This information is stored in JSON format in mLab database hosting.
Resumes uploaded through the Resume Checker feature and the generated reports are stored for 90 days if you don't have an account with Enhancv. If you have an account, the data is stored until the account is deleted. You have the option to delete the reports, which will instantly remove all data associated with them, including the resumes, from our database.
Information about your invited friends is sent to Mandrill for the purpose of sending out the email invitations.
Usage information stored in Google Analytics is kept up to 26 months after your last visit and afterwards used only in aggregate reports. Usage information in Amplitude, Intercom, and Attribution App is kept for an indefinite period of time and used only in aggregate to analyze usage patterns.
Resume content is stored for the duration of that resume being kept on our platform. If you delete your resume or delete your account, all resume content is instantaneously removed from our database.
Information about invited friends is kept within the Mandrill platform for 30 days after email sendout.

How do we use it?
Log data is used to analyze platform usage, improve performance and eliminate any bugs. We primarily look at this information in aggregate, but we might review individual logs when looking for the cause of a specific issues.
