How we handle your data

Ownership

If you use our platform as a basis for your devices and their measurement data (and all other data), the data remains completely in your ownership.

Access Control

If you create a workspace on Our Platform, as it happens automatically the first time you log in, then only you will have access to this workspace. Neither employees of Datacake nor any other person can view the data of your workspace.

If you want to share access to your workspace with other people, you must explicitly invite those people to your workspace. This also applies if you ask a member of the Datacake support team for advice and assistance. This person will only have access to your workspace if you add them as members of that workspace.

Scope

This behavior (ownership and access control) applies to all things within your workspace, including

  • All devices in your workspace.

  • All sub-workspaces and their data / devices.

  • Simply everything within your workspace.

How we handle the data coming from your Devices

You can use the following integrations to connect your devices to the Datacake Portal:

  • MQTT

  • REST-API

  • The Things Network

  • Particle.io

Anonymous data transmission

The following description applies equally to all integrations and describes how the data flows from your devices into the portal and how we handle this data:

If your device plays data into our systems via integration, this is always done anonymously. This means that no personal or workspace-related data is transferred during transmission.

For the allocation of the measurement data to your device and its workspace, an ID number is used, which has a high entropy and therefore cannot be decoded.

When you open the portal via the front-end or the smartphone app on your mobile device, the ID number of your workspace is transferred to the server as a request. The server then transmits a list of all devices. The data in this list is still anonymous.

This information is then combined in a table in the frontend. This assignment does not take place on our servers, it is only implemented using the graphical arrangement of the front-end.

All data of your devices and their measurement data are always anonymous and do not show any personal information.

FAQs

Do you share my data?

No. The data on your equipment remains your property and Datacake will never share this data with any third party.
