  • To provide our online flipbook service to you and your viewers.
  • To bill and collect money owed to us by you.  This includes sending you emails, invoices, receipts, notices of delinquency, and alerting you if we need a different credit card number. We use third parties for secure credit card transaction processing, and those third parties collect billing information to process your orders and credit card payments. 
  • To send you system alert messages. For example, we may inform you about temporary or permanent changes to our Services, such as planned outages, or send you account, security or compliance notifications, such as new features, version updates, releases, abuse warnings, and changes to this privacy policy.
  • To communicate with you about your account and provide customer support.

  • For marketing & remarketing purposes. We may combine Personal Information with other information we collect or obtain about you (such as information we source from our third-party partners) to serve you specifically, such as to deliver a product or service according to your preferences or restrictions, or for advertising or targeting purposes in accordance with this privacy policy.

 We legally collect and process your data under the following premises:

  • When you give us explicit consent.
  • In order for us to exercise our contract (provide Paperturn’s service to you).
  • To comply with our legal obligations in Denmark and the EU.
  • For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, where necessary.


 For Users, we keep your Personal Data as described in the previous sections of this Privacy Policy as long as you have an active account with us. Once your account is deleted, we take steps to remove all of your personal data from our systems and 3rd party providers within 90 days (the “Buffer Period”). After the buffer period, all data is permanently and irrevocably deleted from our system, except for the data which is mandatory in order for us to comply with our legal, regulatory and taxation obligations. For Viewers, your personal data is permanently deleted from our system when the User deletes their account or the flipbook associated with your data input.



With some of Paperturn’s features (lead form / shopping cart), a Paperturn User is able to collect Data from their Viewers and download that collected Data in CSV format. In these instances, the Paperturn User becomes the Data Controller and Paperturn becomes the Data Processor. This is because the User exercises overall control of the purpose and means of the processing of the Data (they decide what to process from their Viewers and why), while Paperturn only facilitates the data collection from a technical perspective and acts on behalf of the User’s instructions.


As such, Users are responsible for having the appropriate permission and consent relevant to collect and process Data about their Viewers, as well as ensuring that their manner of processing the Data is consistent with this Privacy Policy.


If you are a Viewer who has voluntarily submitted Personal Data to one of our Users via these features, and wish to exercise any of your data rights (See Section 11 below), please contact the User directly. Should you contact us, we may remove or update your information within a reasonable time, after providing notice to the User of your request. 


We will only retain the Data we process on behalf of our User for as long as needed to provide our Services or to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent abuse, and enforce our Agreements.

Types of personal data Paperturn Users may collect from their Viewers: 

 The Personal Data collected depends entirely on the fields the User is requesting for the Viewer to fill out; however, examples may include: the Viewer’s email address, full name, company, address, phone number etc. It is important to note that as a Viewer, you are not required to fill out any information, but rather, that submission of your information is voluntary and at your own discretion.


As a User, you should know that your usage of the Viewer’s collected Personal Information is limited to:


  • facilitating the use of your services;

  • sending informational or promotional messages;

  • providing customer support;

  • providing, supporting, and improving the services you offer.


Additionally, usage and storage of collected Personal Information is limited to the terms set out in this Privacy Policy. Any breach of such terms may result in Paperturn suspending your rights to use these data collection features, termination of your account or in some cases, legal action.



 When we share Personal Information with third parties, we take steps to protect your information by requiring these third parties to enter into a contract with us that requires them to use the Personal Information we transfer to them in a manner that is consistent with this privacy policy and applicable privacy laws.


Paperturn’s current list of Sub-Processors used to process Personal Data can be viewed here. 


 We maintain technical, physical, and administrative security measures designed to provide reasonable protection for your Personal Data against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, and alteration.  The security measures include: firewalls, data encryption, dedicated servers, physical access controls to our data centers & offices, information access authorization controls, protection against script injection and A+ server SSL ratings.


While we are dedicated to securing our systems and Services, you are responsible for securing and maintaining the privacy of your password(s) and Account/profile registration information and verifying that the Personal Data we maintain about you is accurate and current.  We are not responsible for protecting any Personal Data that we share with a third-party - Please review their individual privacy policies for more information on their data protection efforts.



Every care is taken to protect your Personal Data from accidental or deliberate incidents that compromise security. In the unfortunate and unlikely event that a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you, we will notify both you and the relevant supervisory authority about the breach within 72 hours of becoming aware of it.  We will also inform you of the steps we’ve taken to remediate the breach at our earliest possible opportunity.

This section provides additional details about the personal information we collect about California consumers and the rights afforded to them under the California Consumer Privacy Act or “CCPA,” as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act or “CPRA”.

Although the CCPA does not officially apply to Paperturn, as we do not fulfil one or more of the conditions outlined in the law, we are still committed to compliance, as outlined below.

California law requires that we detail the categories of personal information that we collect and disclose for certain “business purposes,” such as to service providers that assist us with securing our services or marketing our products, and to such other entities as described in earlier sections of this Privacy Policy. We collect this information for the business and commercial purposes described in this Privacy Policy and we do not sell the personal information we collect, under any circumstances. 

We may also share personal information (in the form of identifiers and internet activity information) with third party advertisers for purposes of targeting advertisements on non-Paperturn websites, applications, and services. In addition, we may allow third parties to collect personal information from our sites or services if those third parties are authorised service providers who have agreed to our contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of such personal information, or if you use our sites or services to interact with third parties or direct us to disclose your personal information to third parties.

Subject to certain limitations, the CCPA provides California consumers the right to request to know more details about the categories or specific pieces of personal information we collect (including how we use, disclose, or may sell this information), to delete their personal information, to opt out of any “sales”, to know and opt out of sharing of personal information for delivering advertisements on non-Paperturn websites, and to not be discriminated against for exercising these rights.

California consumers may make a request pursuant to their rights under the CCPA, which closely mirror rights under the GDPR, by filling out this form. We will verify your request using the information associated with your account, including email address. Government identification may be required. Consumers can also designate an authorised agent to exercise these rights on their behalf. Authorised agents must submit proof of authorization.



If you have any questions or comments, if you have a concern about the way in which we have handled any privacy matter or wish to exercise your privacy rights, please contact our Data Protection Officer (DPO) at You can also send us a request via registered mail to:
