6. Cookies and Data Collection Technologies

We and our Service Providers use cookies and other similar technologies to enable and improve the Services we provide, to track the performance of our Sites, perform analytics and gain insights on the use of our Services and the performance of our activities, and for personalization purposes including personalization of ads if we have obtained your consent.

Cookies are packets of information sent to your web browser and then sent back by the browser each time it accesses the server that sent the cookie. Some cookies are removed when you close your browser session. These are the “Session Cookies”. Some last for longer periods and are called “Persistent Cookies”. We use both types.

Some cookies are necessary for the Services to function properly, and cannot be declined or disabled unless you delete and block them through your web browser settings. Other cookies, which are used for functional, performance, analytics and marketing purposes, are optional. You may opt-in to or opt-out from the use of optional cookies through the “Cookie Settings” feature available on our website, depending on your location and activity on our Services, as applicable. If you choose to opt-out of certain cookies, this will typically generate a new cookie which will preserve your choice, and indicate it to our Services in your next visits so that the cookies you opted-out of will not be utilized. You can also manage your cookies preferences, and accept, remove or entirely block cookies, through your browser settings.

Please note that certain web browsers may transmit “Do Not Track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates, telling the website not to follow its online movements. Because of differences in how web browsers interpret this feature and send those signals, and lack of standardization, we currently do not respond to such “Do Not Track” signals.

We also use the web analytics tool Google Analytics. This tool helps us understand users’ behavior on our Services, including by tracking page content, and click/touch, movements, scrolls and keystroke activities. Further information about the privacy practices of our analytics service provider is available at: Further information about your option to opt-out of this analytics service is available at:

Please note that if you get a new device, install a new browser, erase or otherwise alter your browser’s cookie file (including upgrading certain browsers), you may also clear the opt-out cookies installed once you opt-out, so an additional opt-out will be necessary to prevent additional tracking.

7. Communications

Service Communications: Salt may contact you with important information regarding our Services. For example, we may notify you (through any of the means available to us) of changes or updates to our Services, billing issues,service maintenance or changes, password retrieval notices, etc. You will not be able to opt-out of receiving such service communications while using our Services, as they are integral to such use.

Notifications and Promotional Communications: We may send you notifications concerning new features, offerings, events, and special opportunities or any other information we think you will find valuable. We may provide such notices through any of the contacts means available to us (e.g.,phone, mobile or email), through the Services, or through our marketing campaigns on any other websites or platforms.

If you do not wish to receive such promotional communications, you may notify us at any time by sending an email to or by following the "unsubscribe", "stop" or "change email preferences" instructions contained in the promotional communications you receive.

8. Data Security

Salt and its Service Providers implement systems,applications, and procedures to secure your personal data, to minimize the risks of theft, damage, loss of information, or unauthorized access or use of information. These measures provide sound industry-standard security. However,please be aware that regardless of any security measures used or implemented,we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of any personal data stored with us or with any third parties.

9. Data Subject Rights

Individuals have rights concerning their personal data. Please contact us by e-mail at: if you wish to exercise your privacy rights under any applicable law, including the EU or UK General Data Protection Regulation(GDPR), the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP), or the CCPA as amended from time to time. Such rights may include, to the extent applicable, the right to know/request access to (specific pieces of personal data collected; categories of personal data collected; categories of sources from whom the personal data was collected; purpose of collecting personal data; categories of third parties with whom we have shared personal data), to request rectification or erasure of your personal data held with Salt, or to restrict or object to such personal data’s processing (including the right to direct us not to sell or share your personal data to third parties now or in the future, as described below), or to port such personal data, or the right to equal services and prices (e.g., freedom from discrimination) (each to the extent available to you under the laws which apply to you). If you are a GDPR-protected individual, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority in the EU or the UK, as applicable.

To the extent applicable to you, you may also designate an authorized agent, in writing or through a power of attorney, to request to exercise your privacy rights on your behalf. The authorized agent may submit a request to exercise these rights by emailing us.

When you or an authorized agent ask us to exercise any of your rights, we may need to ask you to provide us certain credentials to make sure that you are who you claim you are, to avoid disclosure to you of personal data related to others and to ask you to provide further information to better understand the nature and scope of data that you request to access. If your request relates to personal data contained in Customer Data (i.e., personal data we process on our Customer’s behalf as its “data processor” or “service provider”, as further explained in Section 10 below), such Customer exclusively determines how the data may be processed, as well as if and how your request should be handled. In such circumstances, we advise that you submit your request directly to them. We may not be able to fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information that enables us to reasonably verify that you are the individual about whom we collected the personal data, and if such data is processed on behalf of any of our Customers, to which Customer it particularly relates, so that we may forward it to them for their further handling. Such additional information may be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g., as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request, or proof of request fulfillment).

We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data or confidential information related to others.

10. Data Controller/Processor

Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the EU GDPR, UK GDPR, and CCPA, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the “Data Controller” (or under the CCPA, the “Business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor” (or under the CCPA, the “Service Provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.

Salt is the “Data Controller” of its Visitors’, Partners’ and Users’ Personal Data. With respect to such data, we assume the responsibilities of Data Controller (solely to the extent applicable under law), as set forth in this Privacy Policy. In such instances, our Service Providers processing such data will assume the role of “data processor”.

Salt is the “Data Processor” of Customer Data. Such data is being processed by Salt on behalf of the Customer (who is the “Data Controller” of such data; and our Service Providers who process such Customer Data on our behalf are the “sub-processors” of such data). Accordingly, Salt processes Customer Data strictly in accordance with our Customer’s reasonable instructions and as further stipulated in our data processing addendum and commercial agreement with such Customer.

Our Customers are solely responsible for determining whether and how they wish to use our Services, and for ensuring that all individuals using the Services on the Customer’s behalf or at their request, as well as all individuals whose personal data may be included in Customer Data processed through the Services, have been provided with adequate notice and given informed consent to the processing of their personal data, where such consent is necessary or advised, and that all legal requirements applicable to the collection, recording, use or other processing of data through our Services are fully met by the Customer, including specifically in the context of an employment relationship. Our Customers are also responsible for handling data subject rights requests under applicable law, by their Users and other individuals whose data they process through the Services.

11. Opt-Out of Sale/Sharing

Under some US data protection laws, like the CCPA, our disclosure of certain internet activity and device information to third parties through cookies may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of personal information. We do so in pursuit of the business and commercial purposes described in Section 2 above.

For the purposes of the CCPA, in the last 12 months we have"sold" or "shared" Internet or other electronic network activity information, Geolocation data, and Commercial information with our analytics and advertising partners and service providers. Salt has not knowingly sold or shared the personal information of individuals under the age of 16.

You may opt out of all Cookies that may result in a “sale” and/or“sharing” of your personal information in the following ways:

  • Click the “Your Privacy Choices” button (available in our website’s footer), move the toggle switch next to “Share or Sale of Personal Information” to grey (disabled), then click the “Confirm my Choices” button.

    Please note: If you visit us from a different device or browser, or clear cookies, then you need to return to this screen to re-select your preferences.

Set the Global Privacy Control (GPC) for each participating browser system that you use to opt out of the use of third-party Advertising or other cookies (instructions on how to download and use GPC).

12. Additional Notices and Contact Details
