Privacy Policy

General Provisions

At Virola, we respect your need for online privacy. We take all reasonable and appropriate measures to protect your personal data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Our Privacy Policy is designed to explain how we collect, store, use, disclose, process, and transfer this personal information.

Self-hosted Virola Messenger

Data stored on a self-hosted Virola server is fully controlled by the server owner. No data from the self-hosted Virola server or Virola client applications is disclosed to third parties, or available to Virola developers. Server owners bear responsibility for data storage and integrity.

If push notifications for mobile Virola clients are enabled on the server, encrypted push notifications about new messages and calls are sent from the server to Apple APNs or/and Google Firebase services and then to Virola mobile clients. However, these push notifications can be decrypted only on the server or on the client. If necessary, push notifications can be fully disabled for the server.

Cloud based Virola Messenger

Cloud-based Virola server stores account registration email and workspace data you provide when creating, updating and using your server in Virola cloud. This may be your server users' names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers and other contact details, job descriptions, company name, text messages, files, etc. It's up to you which data to provide. The only required data for each user profile is the nickname and the password to login to Virola client.

In no case will we disclose this information to third parties unless forced to do so by law.

International Data Transfer
