Description of the Services

Anecdote provides an application with the objective to simplify the collection and understanding of customers for businesses.

This enables the user and their business to prioritise product development, take action on customer pain points and get to know their customers in an efficient way. ("Services"). More information about the Services can be found on the Site and in the App. To be able to use the Services, adequate internet access is required.

You confirm that all information provided to us in the creation of your Account is correct and agree to ensure that the information is accurate at all times. We are entitled to decline or adjust an order from you or shutdown your Account in the event that you provide us with untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete information when creating your Account.

Once an Account has been successfully created, and payment has been made where prepayment is required, the Services will be available and ready to use or order, as detailed on the Site and/or in the App.Credentials for your Account must be kept secure at all times. You may only create one Account. You are not allowed to transfer the Account to another person or to share data relating to your Account with any third parties.

Limitation and risks using AI

The product produces and displays AI generated content and the User should be aware of the limitations and risks associated with an open-ended machine learning algorithm. Anecdote uses third party machine learning technology to summarise, tag and search. More specifically:

- To summarise one or multiple pieces of internal/external user feedback and/or reviews.
- To extract one or multiple insights of internal/external user feedback and/or reviews
- To improve search results by using semantic search to retrieve and display one or multiple pieces of internal/external user feedback and/or reviews.

Known risks with using an open-ended machine learning algorithm includes but are not limited to:

- Machine learning components can only be expected to provide reasonable outputs when given inputs similar to the ones present in the training data. Even if an ML system is considered safe when operated under conditions similar to training data, human operators can provide unfamiliar inputs that put the system into an unsafe state, and it is often not obvious to an operator what inputs will or won’t lead to unsafe behavior
- Machine learning components are biased. ML components reflect the values and biases present in the training data, as well as those of their developers. Systems using ML components—especially systems that interact with people in open-ended ways—can perpetuate or amplify those values.
- Safety is a moving target for ML systems. The safety characteristics of ML systems change every time the ML components are updated, for example if they are retrained with new data, or if new components are trained from scratch with novel architectures.

Anecdote cannot guarantee full safety and/or unbiased results and the User is requested to report any offensive, biased or similarly harmful machine learning generated results directly to the Company. Anecdote will take appropriate action to remove any harmful content and provide feedback to relevant service providers.

Anecdote's Processing of Personal Data
We have a responsibility to describe and demonstrate how we fulfill the requirements that are imposed on us when we Process your Personal Data. This section aims to give you an understanding of what type of Personal Data we Process and for what reasons.  

For how long do we store your Personal Data?
We will keep your Personal Data as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
Depending on the lawful basis on which we support the Processing, this may  
- be regulated in a contract  
- be dependent on valid consent
- be stated in legislation or followed by an internal assessment based on a legitimate interest assessment (LIA).  

We never store your Personal Data longer than necessary and delete Personal Data regularly. Anecdote also takes reasonable actions to keep the Personal Data being Processed updated and to delete outdated and otherwise incorrect or redundant Personal Data.

How do we get access to your Personal Data?
We collect your Personal Data in a number of different ways. We mainly get access to your Personal Data by you providing your Personal Data to us.  

Lawful basis
In order for us to be able to process your Personal Data, it is required that we have so-called legal basis for each process. In our business, we process your personal data mainly on the following grounds:

Consent - Anecdote may process your personal data after you have given your consent to the Processing. Information regarding the processing is always provided in connection to the request of consent.

6. Disclosure of personal data

In order to run our business, we may need help from others who will process Personal Data on our behalf, so-called Processors.

In cases where our Processors transfer Personal Data outside the EU/EEA, we have ensured that the level of protection is adequate, and in compliance with Applicable Law, by controlling that either of the following requirements are fulfilled:
- the EU Commission has determined that the level of protection is adequate in the third country where the data is processed;
- the Processor has signed up to the EU Commission's standard contract clauses (SCCs) for data transfer to non-EU/EEA countries; or
- the Processor has taken other appropriate safeguards prior to the transfer and that such safeguards comply with Applicable law.

We may also need to disclose your personal information to certain designated authorities in order to fulfill obligations under applicable law or legally binding judgements.

Our processors
Anecdote does not sell your Personal Data to third parties and of course we do not share your Personal Data with just anyone. However, in some cases we may need to share your Personal Data with selected third parties. If so, we make sure that the transfer happens in a secure way that protects your privacy. To follow are categories of recipients with whom we may share your data.

- Service Providers: We may need to share personal data with our service providers to meet our operational needs. Examples of service providers are hosting services, cloud services, and other technology services providers, email communication software and email newsletter services, advertising and marketing services, and web analytics services.

- Corporate transactions: We may need to disclose your personal data if we are involved in corporate transactions such as reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, or transition of service to another provider (collectively a “Transaction”). Examples of parties to whom we may need to disclose information are counterparties and others assisting the Transaction as well as successors or affiliates that are part of the transaction.

- Legal Requirements: We may need to disclose your personal data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, (ii) protect and defend our rights or property, (iii) prevent fraud, (iv) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services, or the public, or (v) protect against legal liability.

- Affiliates: We may share Personal Information with our affiliates, meaning an entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Anecdote. Our affiliates may use the Personal Information we share in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

7. How we keep your data safe

Anecdote has taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that your Personal Data is processed securely and protected from loss, abuse and unauthorized access.

Organizational security measures are measures that are implemented in work methods and routines within the organization, such as Internal governance documents (policies/instructions), training assigning a data protection responsibility and conducting a data protection impact assessment.

Technical security measures are measures implemented throughout all technical solutions including encryption, access control levels, secure networks and zero-trust design in our applications.

8. Your data protection rights

You are the one in control of your Personal Data and we always strive to ensure that you can exercise your rights as efficiently and smoothly as possible.

Access - You always have the right to receive information about the Processing of data that concerns you. We only provide information if we have been able to verify that it is you that are requesting the information.

Rectification - If you find that the Personal Data we process about you is incorrect, let us know and we will fix it!

Erasure - Do you want us to completely forget about you? You have the right to be forgotten and request deletion of your Personal Data when the Processing is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. If we are required to retain your information under applicable law or a contract that we have entered with you, we will ensure that it is processed only for the specific purpose set forth in such applicable law or contract. We will thereafter erase the information as soon as possible.

Objections - Do you disagree with our assessment that a legitimate interest for Processing your Personal Data overrides your interest in protecting your privacy? Don't worry - in such case, we will review our legitimate interest assessment. Of course, we add your objection to the balance and make a new assessment to see if we can still justify our Processing of your Personal Data. If you object to direct marketing, we will immediately delete your personal information without making an assessment.​

Restriction - You can also ask us to restrict our Processing of your Personal Data
- Whilst we are Processing a request from you for any of your other rights;
- If, instead of requesting erasure, you want us to limit the Processing of Personal Data for a specific purpose. For example, if you do not want us to send advertising to you in the future, we still need to save your name in order to know that we should not contact you; or
- In cases where we no longer need the information in relation to the purpose for which it was collected, provided that you do not have an interest in retaining it to make a legal claim.

Data portability - We may provide you with the data that you have submitted to us or that we have received from you in connection with a contract that we have entered with you. You will receive your information in a commonly used and machine-readable format that you can transfer to another personal data manager.

Withdraw consent - If you have given consent to one or several specific Processing(s) of your Personal Data, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time and thus ask us to terminate the Processing immediately. Please note that you can only withdraw your consent for future Processing of Personal Data and not for Processing that has already taken place.

How you use your rights
You may, at any time, request the information we store about you. Please note that it may take up to 30 days to provide the full information. Contact us via legal@anec.app for requests.

The services

As global regulations evolve, we remain dedicated to updating this section as needed to ensure ongoing compliance.


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a comprehensive EU data privacy law in effect since May 25, 2018, has our unwavering attention. Anecdote operates as a data processor, supporting data controllers in fulfilling their GDPR obligations. We route direct inquiries from consumers and end-users to the respective data controllers for handling.

To align with GDPR, we establish Data Protection Agreements with relevant customers and third parties, ensuring robust processing and safeguards for EU personal data. Our standardized processes and technical capabilities aid our customers in responding to data subject requests. We meticulously select and monitor third-party vendor relationships with a risk-based approach.

We address information security and data privacy through a holistic integration of people, processes, and technology. To validate the effectiveness of our internal security controls, we have engaged an independent auditor to assess our compliance with a specialized framework tailored for software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers.

Anecdote proudly holds a SOC 2 Type 2 report, confirming our alignment with the SOC 2 SSAE 18 standard. This report encapsulates our approach to information security management, risk assessment, board oversight, and third-party risks, among other guiding principles.

Our commitment to compliance is further fortified by hosting our services on Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS is a state-of-the-art data center equipped with innovative architectural and modern engineering approaches. These data centers have received validation for compliance against rigorous standards, regulations, and diverse frameworks.
