Data protection laws distinguish between entities that control the purposes and means of processing information and entities that process information on behalf of other entities.
A. Information You Provide.
We collect information you provide to us, such as information you provide when you register an account, use the Service, update your profile, make a purchase, sign-up for our newsletters, participate in a promotion, respond to our surveys, or contact support, or apply for a job. The categories of information we collect include:

Please do not provide any information that we do not request.

E. Information We Create or Generate.

F. Google API
To access your email to be processed by us, we ask for authorization to access your Google email account(s) using Google’s OAUTH2 mechanism.
1. Who is requesting Google user data? We, Cyber Risk Research, owners of Sangu are requesting access to your Google gmail account. We hold this access token in a digital vault and always keep this information confidential.
2. What data are we requesting? We are requesting full access to your Google gmail account. This allows us to read, write, modify, and delete messages and to read, write, and modify the settings in your account. We use this access to bring your emails into Sangu, process them, and write the results back out to your mailbox.
3. Why are we requesting Google user data? We are requesting the data to be able offer our services to you. To be able to scan your emails, our software needs to be able to read the contents of your mail, run it through our system, then add banners to messages and return the modified message back to your mailbox. We also move spam and malicious emails to a Spam folder and this requires modify permission. We also ask for delete permission to be able to delete messages in your mailbox that we have modified. We will never delete a message that is not otherwise accessible. If your mailbox is a Google mailbox and we access it using IMAP, Google requires that we ask for full access permissions to use the IMAP protocol. When you use Sangu with our Google Workspace account, we access the settings of this Google Workspace account to modify the settings when you add your existing email to this account. This can be done manually but it is much easier and less error prone when we add your accounts by automation.
In all cases, the access we request are solely and explicitly used in pursuit of providing you with our service. We do not use or look at the contents of any of your mail in any way except when you report messages to us for investigation.
Notwithstanding the above, we may use non-personal information for any purpose to the extent permitted by applicable law. For details on your rights and choices regarding how we use information about you, please see the “Your Rights and Choices” section below.

If you delete your account from the service, the Email message content will be removed within 48 hours from the mailbox servers. Your linked accounts will not be further changed so any messages remaining on those accounts will remain on the linked account providers systems.
