How and why we use your data

Data protection law means that we can only use your data for certain reasons and where we have a legal basis to do so. Here are the reasons for which we process your data:

You have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose, such as providing you with updates about an application or receiving marketing emails.

Testing features and content, managing landing pages, heat mapping our site, traffic optimization and data analysis and research, including profiling and the use of machine learning and other techniques over your data and in some cases using third parties to do this.

Sending you emails and messages about new features, products and services, and content.


We need to process your data in order to comply with our obligations under a contract we have signed with you. This includes the steps we take towards signing a contract with you, even if these steps don’t actually result in the signing of a contract. This includes steps like conducting calls to understand your problem (for which we may record video or transcripts), or exchanging emails.

Legitimate interests

Processing your data is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, provided those interests are not outweighed by your rights and interests. These legitimate interests are:

  • Providing services to you that you have requested.
  • Gaining insights from your behaviour on our website or in our app
  • Delivering, developing and improving MantisNLP website
  • Enabling us to enhance, customise or modify our services and comms
  • Determining whether marketing campaigns are effective
  • Enhancing data security

In each case, these legitimate interests are only valid if they are not outweighed by your rights and interests

Your privacy choices and rights

You can change your mind!

If you have previously given consent to our processing of your data you can freely withdraw such consent at any time. You can do this by emailing us at

If you do withdraw your consent, and if we do not have another legal basis for processing your information, then we will stop processing your personal data. If we do have another legal basis for processing your information, then we may continue to do so subject to your legal rights.

You have the right to access information we hold about you

This includes the right to ask us supplementary information about:

  • the categories of data we’re processing
  • the purposes of data processing
  • the categories of third parties to whom the data may be disclosed
  • how long the data will be stored (or the criteria used to determine that period)
  • your other rights regarding our use of your data

We will provide you with the information within one month of your request, unless doing so would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others (e.g. another person’s confidentiality or intellectual property rights). We’ll tell you if we can’t meet your request for that reason.

You have the right to ask us to correct any inaccurate personal data about you

You can object to us using your data for profiling you or making automated decisions about you We may use your data to determine whether we should let you know information that might be relevant to you (for example, tailoring emails to you based on your behaviour).

You have the right to port your data to another service

We will give you a copy of your data in CSV or JSON so that you can provide it to another service. If you ask us and it is technically possible, we will directly transfer the data to the other service for you. We will not do so to the extent that this involves disclosing data about any other individual.

You have the right to be forgotten by us

You can do this by asking us to erase any personal data we hold about you.

You have the right to lodge a complaint regarding our use of your data

Please tell us first, so we have a chance to address your concerns by emailing us at

Where do we store the data?

The personal data we collect is processed at our offices in Cyprus and in any data processing facilities operated by the third parties identified below.

If you asked for a quotation from us, but we have not entered into a contract then we will delete any information obtained about you within 1 year.

Third parties who process your data

Tech businesses often use third parties to help them host their application, communicate with customers, power their emails etc. We partner with third parties who we believe are the best in their field at what they do.

When we do this, sometimes it is necessary for us to share your data with them in order to get these services to work well. Your data is shared only when strictly necessary and according to the safeguards and good practices detailed in this Privacy Policy. Where personal data is transferred to a third party in the United States we take steps to ensure we agree to the standard contractual clauses with them. We continually monitor this transfer mechanism. Any data transfers to the US are encrypted and generally consist of insensitive personal data.
