Terms of Service for PacePeek

Introduction

Welcome to PacePeek! These Terms of Service ("Terms") govern your use of the PacePeek website, services, and applications (collectively, the "Service"). By accessing or using the Service, you agree to be bound by these Terms.

Jurisdiction and Governing Law

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Finland, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Any disputes arising out of or in connection with these Terms shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Finland.

Modification of Terms

We reserve the right to modify these Terms at any time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Terms on this page. Your continued use of the Service after we post any modifications will constitute your acknowledgment of the modifications and your consent to abide and be bound by the modified Terms.

Accounts

To access certain features of the Service, you must register using your GitHub account. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account.

Use of Service

PacePeek is a service that enhances the collaboration and communication within development teams by analyzing GitHub commit patches and generating summary posts based on those changes. Users can sign up for PacePeek using their GitHub account, which allows us to access their email address, GitHub avatar, name, and user access token. This information is used to facilitate the integration with GitHub and to enable real-time updates, analysis of commit patches, and notifications.

Individual Users: Individual users can track their public repositories, and PacePeek will generate summaries from the changes. By installing PacePeek's GitHub app on their personal GitHub account, users enable PacePeek to fetch necessary commit data from their repositories. Individual users can add one Twitter account to their PacePeek account to repost every post from every repository. They can also add markdown and HTML widgets to showcase their latest posts from any repository. Individual users can follow other individual users to see the followed users' posts on their home page. PacePeek waits for a significant enough changes across commits to be made before generating a progress summary post, ensuring that the posts reflect meaningful progress.

Organizations: Users who are admins of a GitHub organization can add the organization to PacePeek by installing PacePeek's GitHub app on the organization's GitHub account. Once added, all members of the organization will be included in PacePeek, and their names will be shown on the posts they make. All repositories under the organization can be tracked, and the progress will be tracked with commit branch trees, summaries, and feature history. By default, each repository is private on PacePeek, but the visibility to people outside the repository can be toggled from each repository's settings. If a repository's visibility is set to public, an X integration can be applied to post that repository's summary posts to X (Twitter) either instantly or by summarizing daily progress. Widgets specific to each repository can be used to showcase the latest summary updates in markdown or HTML. Unlike individual user posts, which require a certain amount of significant progress in commits before being made into a post, organization repositories will generate a post for every commit.

For organizations, the generated content from their repositories, including posts created from GitHub commits, is considered to be the property of the organization. This content can be made visible to external individuals who are not part of the organization on GitHub but are allowed to view the generated posts and other generated content on PacePeek or related widgets/Twitter posts. The visibility of this content is subject to the organization's control and policies, and the organization is responsible for ensuring that the content is used in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.

All tokens, emails, organization posts, and other sensitive data are encrypted and stored securely to protect user information. Users have the right to delete their account and all associated data at any time through the service interface, subject to the policies outlined in the Privacy Policy.

User Content and Data Use

You acknowledge and agree that by using the Service, you may be exposed to user content that is offensive, indecent, or objectionable. You agree to use the Service at your own risk. We are not responsible for the content or accuracy of any generated content.

Responsibility of Organization Owners and App Installers

When an organization owner or an individual with admin rights installs PacePeek's GitHub app on an organization's GitHub account, they are responsible for ensuring that all members of the organization have given their informed consent to have their commit data analyzed by PacePeek. This consent must be obtained in a manner that complies with privacy laws and regulations, including GitHub's policies and any applicable Data Protection Agreements (DPAs).

Organization owners and app installers must clearly communicate to their members how their data will be used, including any third-party services like PacePeek that will have access to their GitHub commit data. This communication should include the purpose of the data use, the security measures in place to protect the data, and the understanding that there is no option to opt-out. The organization is responsible for ensuring that the data is used in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations, and PacePeek does not independently collect or use personal data from GitHub organizations without the explicit consent of the organization's members.

By using PacePeek's services, organization owners and app installers agree to abide by these terms and acknowledge that they are responsible for obtaining and managing the consent of all members of the organization for the use of their data. Failure to obtain proper consent may result in the termination of the organization's access to PacePeek's services and potential legal consequences. If there are disagreements within an organization regarding the use of PacePeek's services, the organization should not use PacePeek.

It is the responsibility of the organization owner or app installer to resolve any internal disagreements and ensure that all members are in agreement with the use of PacePeek's services. PacePeek does not provide a mechanism for individual members to opt-out of data analysis or to withdraw their consent once it has been granted.

Privacy Policy for PacePeek

Introduction

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and protect your personal information when you use PacePeek.

Information We Collect

  • Email Address: We collect your email address linked to your GitHub account for payment and service-related purposes.
  • GitHub Avatar, Name, and User Access Token: We store your GitHub avatar, name, and user access token to facilitate the integration with GitHub and to enable real-time updates, analysis of commit patches, and notifications.
  • GitHub App Installation IDs: When you install PacePeek's GitHub app on your account or an organization's account, we store the installation ID to fetch necessary commit data from GitHub repositories, even when you are not actively using PacePeek.
  • Twitter Access Tokens: If you choose to share posts to Twitter, we store access tokens for this purpose. These tokens are used to post content to your Twitter account(s).
  • User Preferences and Session Data: We use cookies and session data to store user preferences and manage login sessions.
  • Posts and Repositories Data: We store data related to the posts and repositories you have subscribed to. This includes information about the posts generated from your GitHub commits and the repositories you have granted access to.

Use of Information

We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, and improve our services, to process transactions, and to communicate with you. This includes analyzing GitHub commit patches to generate summary posts, sharing these posts to Twitter, and managing user accounts and preferences.

Data Security

We take the security of your data seriously and implement reasonable measures to protect it from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. This includes encryption of sensitive data like email addresses, GitHub access tokens, Twitter access tokens, and private organization content at rest and in transit, regular security audits, and compliance with industry standards.

Data Management for Individuals

You have the right to delete your account and all associated data at any time through the service interface. Please note that deleting your account will remove all your data from our servers, but it may not remove all data from third-party services like GitHub and Twitter, depending on their policies.

Data Management for Organizations

For organizations that sign up and use PacePeek, the data management process is slightly different due to the involvement of multiple users. When an organization signs up for PacePeek, the data generated from the organization's repositories, including posts created from GitHub commits, is considered to be the property of the organization. This means that the deletion of an organization's data is subject to the organization's control and policies.

If an organization wishes to delete all data associated with its use of PacePeek, including posts generated from the organization's GitHub commits, it must contact PacePeek directly. PacePeek will then work with the organization to ensure that all relevant data is deleted in accordance with the organization's data retention and deletion policies.

It's important to note that while PacePeek can facilitate the deletion of data related to an organization's use of the service, the final responsibility for data management and deletion lies with the organization. Organizations should review their own data policies and procedures to understand how data is handled within their organization.

Changes to This Policy

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.
