Data service management

  • This section sets out how GrabzIt handles data across our four main services and tools, this includes:
    • An API, which is designed to allow applications (so computer-to-computer communication) to convert URL’s or HTML into an image, PDF document, Word document, CSV, Excel Spreadsheet, JSON, or rendered HTML document. To do this the desired input is loaded into an automated browser and any transforms the user desires are applied after which it is converted. The result is then automatically returned to the application, via a web hook, a download after the conversion is complete or an automatic transfer to a third party such as DropBox or Amazon S3. Depending on the physical location of you or the nominated receiving party, this automated action could mean that personal data is transmitted across international border and beyond the United Kingdom and/or the European Union. Captures are cached on the server that created it. How long the capture will be cached for depends on the user’s package. Free user’s captures are cached for thirty minutes, Entry users three hours, Professional users six hours, Business and Enterprise users twelve hours. However, the user also has the option of altering this length from the maximum defined for their package down to zero minutes. We also give the users the ability to encrypt their captures.
    • A Screenshot Tool, this is designed to regularly take and archive screenshots, of URL’s that the user would like to track this can then be stored in image, PDF document, Word document, CSV, Excel Spreadsheet, JSON, or rendered HTML document format. The result can then be sent to a third party or the user emailed when the screenshot is taken, or only archived. Free users’ captures are cached for thirty minutes but are not archived. Users with an Entry package are cached for six months, users with a Professional package are archived for one year Business two years and Enterprise three years all archiving is done on a backed-up bucket provided by Stackpath, in the US. Metadata about the screenshot tool task is kept in a database in the UK.
    • A Web Scraper, this is designed to scrape a URL extracting data from a website, that the user is interested in. This can then be sent to a third-party location, the user emailed or the data passed to an application. The results of a web scrape are kept on the server in a zip file on the scraper server for 48 hours, before being deleted. Metadata about the web scrape is kept in a database in the UK.
    • A Website Analyzer, this tracks the performance of a URL keeping data on how the URL is performing, such as load time, website issues etc., along with a screenshot of the URL. The statistics on the website are stored in the database in the UK, along with a small screenshot of the website. This is kept until the website is deleted from the tool by the user.

Retaining and deleting personal data

  • This section sets out our data retention policies and procedure, which are designed to help ensure that we comply with our legal obligations in relation to the retention and deletion of personal data.
