Who is Mandala?

We are Ocean Sky Network Company Limited, and we trade as Mandala (“we”, “us” or “Mandala”). 
Our registered office address is at Summer Lasalle unit A521-5, 846 Lasalle Road, Bangna-Tai, Bangna, Bangkok 10260, may also act as a data controller from time to time at [email protected] We act as the data controller of the Personal Data that we process about you.

Mandala is a provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) AI-Powered solution for social media marketing, search engine analytics and offers a suite of social media management and online listening analytics that are accessible via our websites and mobile applications. These tools allow you to bring together all of your social media accounts and search engine data for easy to access and management through a single online portal. Through this portal, you can listen, analyze and monitor public mentions including the ability to manage your social media, marketing, and advertising campaigns; engage with your audiences; schedule and publish messages; and analyze the results of these activities. The analyzed data is use for research, statistical analysis, both in terms of quantitative and qualitative research and measurements, this also includes analytical works and processes, benchmarking and rating of public channels and data. The data collected and analyze by Mandala are public data and/or set by the users/owners as public which allow us to perform complex analysis such as online behavior. The data we process is predominantly public data permitted access by the social media platforms, which the owners and users set as public, or consent Mandala to analyze. Despite all the data are public, we still treat any public data such as user public profiles and content as anonymous and do not trace back to the original users, such data are to innovate new technological services and perform complex AI procedures such as persona mapping that does not relate to the unique and actual user. As a general rule, we do not process and sell private data unless consented by the owner.

All functions, objectives, and features described, we refer to these tools as our “Services”. Furthermore, any collection, use, and management of personal information by the social networks, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter (collectively, the “Social Networks”) and Search Engines, Google, YouTube, Web Domains, Web Forums (collectively, the “Web sites and Search Engines”) are governed by their respective privacy policies and terms. When using Social Networks, Websites and Search Engines, you are required to comply with their privacy policies and terms. We recommend you carefully review their privacy policies and terms, as Mandala is not responsible for the Social Networks, Web sites and Search Engines privacy policies and terms. Our Services are not intended for use by children and should only be accessed by individuals who are at least 18 years old and are using the Services for business purposes.

We may collect personal data from our customers and users of the Services (which includes employees of our corporate or institutional customers) for our own purposes, such as to provide and administer the Services, and to protect our legal rights. In this regard, we are the data controller of this personal data.

In order to provide our Services, we analyze user profiles and other information that we receive directly from the social media platforms and other online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others, via these platforms’ APIs. Such data include both non-personal data which is considered as Public Data by the platforms, and/or set by users as public such as various statistics and metrics and personal data of the platforms’ users (Personal data that is agreed by the users). Where we source the data directly from the relevant platforms, via these platforms’ public APIs, we determine the purpose of processing, which is developing and constantly enhancing our Services and offering them to our customers on a world-wide basis, via our web platform. Despite the relevant APIs from major platforms may allow us to collect and manage personal data such as personal profile, we have no interests to collect and operate on these personal data, such as user name, email address, time, phone number, etc. We only access public profiles and its content set by the owner as “Public” that the platform provide, which allows us to access, collect, and process. We believe what the user and owner set as “private” must be treated privately, and Mandala never cross this line. We only use public data (or set by the user as Public) to perform analytical functions, as a result we may access public profile, public pages and channels and its content to perform analytical function such as persona function, the studying of interactions for examples. In such cases, we always treat user id as anonymous and do not identify or trace back to the actual user. Thus, we may access personal details from personal profiles that is only set by the owner as ‘public’. Therefore we only operate and collect data that are “public”. We do not penetrate or indirectly access personal information that are private by nature, either by APIs or by other means. We do not access personal information despite the user logged in via their own social media account or given a user token to our platform. Most of all we do not sell social media data and/or use or send user data to advertising companies, targeting marketing services, or advertising network. In such cases, we are the data controller with respect to such data.

We also process personal data on behalf of our customers as a data processor; this is when the provision of certain Service or specific feature requires that our customers give us a permission (such as, for example, an access token or other administrative permission), within the Service, to access and manage any information that our customers monitor or collect from social media sites; this may include information that is not publicly available. When we access customer’s data with respect to which the customers are the data controllers, we act in accordance with the instructions of our customers (which they give us through the Services) as their data processor. This will be, for example, when we access Facebook Insights, perform post publishing and scheduling or facilitate and organize the communication (e.g. Facebook messages) between the customer and its end users within our product feature of Mandala.

We operates only in Public data, so what is public data?

Public information can be seen by anyone. This includes website content, channels content, user or channels profile names, posts and interaction such as like, comments, or share. Thus, public information can also be seen, accessed, reshared or downloaded through third-party services such as search engines, APIs, and offline media such as TV, and by apps, websites and other services as long as the owner set the content as public. On the contrary, private data means information that the owner is kept or set as private. For example if the data owner set profile name, location and email address as public, then the data is considered as public. On the contrary, if the user set email and phone number as private then the data is completely private and shall not be collected and processed without permission even the APIs allow to do so. Public content also applies to others who share or reshare about you in the public space. We may only operates in public data provided by relevant platforms via APIs.

Mandala as a third-party app that operate with social media platforms, search engines, and web sites may only gain public data such as key statistics, mentions, or interactions. We can only access public profile on social platforms such as Facebook, and any information that you share with them. Apps and websites you use may receive your list of Facebook friends if you choose to share it with them. Mandala offers analytic services, and we provide aggregated statistics and insights that help people and businesses understand how people are engaging with their posts, listings, Pages, videos and other content on and off the social media platforms. For example, a user of Mandala who is also a Facebook page admins may receive information about the number of people or accounts who viewed, reacted to, or commented on their posts, as well as aggregate demographic and other information that helps them understand interactions with their Page or account. We also use public data to provide information and content to research partners and academics to conduct research that advances innovation that support their business or mission, and enhances discovery and innovation on topics of general social welfare, technological advancement, public interest, health and well-being.

Such measures may include, without limitation, taking reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of employees having access to your data and providing for limited access rights and access controls; authentication; personnel training; regular back up; data recovery and incident management procedures; restrictions on storing, printing and disposal of personal data; software protection of devices on which personal data are stored; etc.

We have also implemented Information Security Management in accordance with the requirements of information security standard – ISO 27001, including penetration tests, vulnerability scans, secure development frameworks access management, supplier management and compliance processes.

Data collected from you may be transferred to, and stored and processed in, The United States (US), Singapore, Thailand or any other country in which Mandala, its affiliates, subcontractors, suppliers or other third party vendors maintain facilities. While we reserve the right to change our business partners and /or data locations, when we transfer any personal data to the USA or any other country outside the EU or EEA or Asia in which Mandala, its affiliates, subcontractors, suppliers or vendors maintain facilities, we will implement such appropriate legal mechanism as are required by Thailand law and EU law to ensure an adequate level of personal data protection by such third parties receiving your personal data (for example, Thailand’s Personal Data Protection Act, and European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses).

We may transfer your Personal Data to, and store it in, a country other than your own. That country may not provide the same level of data protection as your own country. Whenever we transfer your information outside of the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, we will take steps to ensure that adequate safeguards are in place to protect your Personal Data and to make sure it is treated securely. You may contact us for a summary of the safeguards which we have put in place to protect your Personal Data and privacy rights in these circumstances.

Our platform and Services (including any personal data contained therein) are hosted in the
AWS cloud. Legally, this means that data are transferred to and stored and processed by Amazon
Web Services, Inc., 410 Terry Avenue, Seattle, WA 98109 (“AWS”). Mandala and AWS have signed the
controller-to-processor Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission (2010/87/EU) to ensure regulatory compliance for data transfers from Europe to the USA. The specific AWS Data Processing Addendum incorporating these model clauses has been approved and validated
on EU level by Article 29 Working Party in 2015 as ensuring an adequate level of protection. See AWS_EU_Data_Protection_Whitepaper_EN.pdf
 for more details.

In general Mandala does not permanently store content from Social Networks. Rather, when you login to the Services, we retrieve data from Social Networks in real time so that it is displayed in the portal for viewing during your session. Aggregated data is used by Mandala for analysis, product improvement, and troubleshooting purposes. Hence, we may only store relevant public data that is necessary to provide functional Services and allow analyses of data for new Service features and product development. We also store other content that you produce (such as draft Content for publication on Social Networks) so that you can easily access this material on the Services. Messages in Inbox are stored for 48 weeks to enable you to take any action required, such as replying to messages. Mandala Analytics products will store mentions related to our customers for up to
 36 months to allow our customers to conduct trending and analysis.

In some cases, content may continue to exist on the Social Networks even after you or we delete it from our Services, and you will need to contact the relevant Social Network directly if you want it to remove this content.

We retain your information only as long as required to provide the Services requested by you, for record keeping purposes, to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce the terms for the Services.

After it is no longer necessary for us to retain information about you, we will dispose of it in a secure manner or anonymize the information.
