In accordance with the U.S. Data Protection Laws and GDPR version 1.1, we at ByteTuned Technologies LLC are big on data security. That is why we aim to make our Privacy Policy clear, concise, and understandable so that you know exactly how your data is being managed and respected.

Who are we?

We are ByteTuned Technologies LLC, based at 5318 Weslayan St, Houston, TX 77005, USA. It acts as the data controller for personal data we collect through our website and services. As the data controller, we determine the purposes and means of processing personal data.

ByteTuned Technologies is committed to providing a range of services to small to mid-sized firms to aid their digital transformations and turning their ideas into great software products. Driven to cultivate long-lasting relationships, we are committed to safeguarding your privacy. This website therefore serves as a marketing tool and any personal data acquired via this website is only intended for marketing purposes. This policy makes it clear the choices available to you regarding the use of, access to, and how to update and correct your personal information. Our Privacy Policy is part of the website’s Terms of Use. We regularly update our policy so please make sure to read it from time to time. If you have any questions regarding this Policy, please email us at [email protected].

What personal data do we collect?

We collect personal data necessary to offer and improve our services, to contact you, and to conduct marketing activities.

Information we obtain from you:
When you get in touch via the contact us form or email, you provide us with your name, phone number, email address, company information, communication content, and data associated with the communication. For instance, when you apply for a vacancy, you share with us your name, email, contact number, location, and any other information listed on your CV. You may also choose to provide similar details about an individual you want to refer. ByteTuned Technologies also occasionally receives information from third parties like LinkedIn if you have given them consent to use and transmit your information. We, therefore, recommend reviewing the privacy policies of such third-party websites as well before making your information public on their platform.

The following information may be gathered when you visit our website:

  • Information about your visits to and use of this Website, including your IP address, geographical location, browser type and version, referral source, page views, and Website navigation paths.
  • Information about your device(s), in particular, hardware model, and version of the operating system.

For more information on the type of cookies and how to opt-out, please continue reading.

Simply put, we may be interested in the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Your email
  • Your phone number
  • Your geographical location
  • Your designation
  • Your Company
  • Company Location
  • Your LinkedIn profile
  • The fact that you have visited our website
  • What website referred you to ours
  • Whether you have downloaded any marketing materials from our website

How do we use and share your personal information?

We process your information by way of obtaining, collecting, organizing, using, retrieving, consulting, aligning, or erasing. We may disclose your information to our subsidiaries or affiliates.

We may also share it with third-party service providers, vendors, and agents who facilitate us with website management, technical support, data analysis, and hosting. We make sure that they also abide by data protection policies like we do.

We may also disclose your personal data:

  • As required by and to the extent of the law
  • In connection with any ongoing or prospective legal proceedings
  • To establish, exercise, or defend our legal rights, including providing information to others with the aim of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk

How long is your information kept for?

We will delete your personal data as soon as we no longer have a need or a legal basis to process it. What does this mean?

  • We’ll always delete your data when we receive a request from you to do so (see below). In the unlikely event that we are still obliged under the law to keep your data, we’ll inform you about that.
  • We will not store or otherwise process your data for an “unlimited period” in other cases. If we rely on legitimate interest for processing, your data will be kept as long as we are in a business relationship with you. If we don’t start a business relationship with you, your data will be stored in our systems for some limited time for our analytics to be done. In no case, we will keep it for more than 1 year, the period which is necessary for communicating with your company as our potential client and after which we treat old analytics as outdated, so your personal data is not needed anymore.

Do we use cookies?

When you visit our website, ByteTuned Technologies may place cookies and similar analytical codes (collectively, “Cookies”) on your device, browser, or the webpage you are viewing, in order to personalize your experience, understand usage patterns, and provide, improve, and secure our website. Cookies are small pieces of text that are stored on your device when you visit a website. This allows the website to tailor its content to suit your needs whenever you visit it next. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies someone, but personal data that we store about you may be linked to the information obtained from cookies.

This may be done for a few reasons:

  • Functional: when cookies are used to tailor your experience. These Cookies make sure you can view the websites and use them in a proper way. Examples of functional cookies: SID, PHPSESSID, wp-settings-X, wp-settings-time-X, etc. For instance, cookies permit:
    • Our website to remember the details you’ve provided when filling in forms – so that you don’t have to enter the same information multiple times.
    • You to share website pages on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
  • Performance: when cookies are used to analyze how you use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to identify and fix any issues that arise quickly. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to keep track of which pages are the most popular, collect anonymous information about how visitors use our website, and “remember” what a user has done visiting other pages on the website. We might also use cookies to highlight articles or offerings that we think will be of interest to you based on how you use our website.
  • Advertising: when cookies are used to target you with our advertising. We do not allow third-party advertisements on our websites, but we do advertise our offers and services on other sites. Some of the sites on which we advertise may use cookies to store information about offers and services in which you have shown an interest as you browse the web. The information from those cookies allows the third-party site to display the most appropriate advertisements for you. Examples of third-party cookies include bcookie, sb, fr, spin, wd, xs, etc.
