Privacy Policy

Our privacy policy is based on the principle that your data is your property - not ours. You have trusted us to hold it and we will protect it to the best of our ability, but we will not use, sell or give it to anyone else without your express permission.

In particular:

We believe our privacy policy meets the requirements of all major privacy legislation in the contries we operate in. This includes:

Cookie Consent Exemption

EU users may notice that despite using a cookie, we do not ask you to accept it. This is because our cookie is strictly necessary to provide our service - we could not provide a secure personalised service without it. This means we satisfy Criterion B of Article 5.3 of Directive 2002/58/EC as amended by Directive 2009/136/EC, and are exempt from providing the right to refuse a cookie.

Server Location

Our services are used by customers in over thirty countries. It would be impractical and expensive to set up and manage servers in each country, so we use centralised servers based in the in the USA.

We use Google Cloud Platform, which provides far better security, scaling and availability than any system we could afford to build. Google employs the best system engineers in the world, and everything these engineers do to protect Google properties also protects MessageMyWay. In-depth analysis here.

Our use of Google Cloud Platform doesn't give Google Search any special access to MessageMyWay data. We don't use Google authentication or tracking cookies, so there is no way Google can use MessageMyWay data to identify or track you.

Google's security and privacy arrangements have been independently certified:
