Struct Chat uses information collected to provide Struct Chat Services. We retain all the information that we collect until we no longer need the information. Struct Chat will process and transfer information within and to the U.S. and other countries and territories from which Struct Chat or its authorized third parties may operate, which may have different privacy laws from your country of residence.

Cookies are text files with small pieces of data that are used to identify your computer as you use a computer network. When a cookie is exchanged between your computer and the network server, the server reads the ID and knows what information it should specifically serve you. As cookies are regularly used by several websites, users will be prompted to accept cookies or decline them. Disabling cookies may limit certain features of the Services. In our case, we do not set and access our own cookies, but we do use third-party cookies – like Google Analytics, cookies needed to integrate with platforms like Slack and cookies added by users to sites powered by us.
