General Information

We collect the e-mail addresses and names of those who sign in to forums with their Facebook social account or through Google Sign-in. Additionally, Customer Case hashes the entered passwords and stores their hashes in the database. This data is volunteered by the consumer during signup to the forum. The information we collect is used to identify users and their ideas added on different forums. This data is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes, except to provide products or services the consumers have requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

Information Gathering and Usage


Customer Case stores hashes of user passwords in the database. We use the adaptive function that increases the iteration count therefore it remains resistant to brute-force search attacks even when using the powerful computing systems.


Data Retention Policy

Our data retention policy can be found at https://docs.stiltsoft.com/display/doc/Data+Retention+Policy.

Data Storage

Customer Case uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run Customer Case. Although StiltSoft company owns the code, databases, and all rights to the Customer Case platform, you retain all rights to your data (account information and added ideas).


We use the following services:

Email address processing

Fetching email address

Customer Case uses the email address as a base for creating a user account and mapping requests / comments to the specific user.

Customer Case can get your email address in the following situations:

  1. during account creation (when you create an account or choose login with a social or Jira account). Customer Case fetches your email address and use it for account creation.
  2. during forum creation (when the administrator selects a Jira project for using as a base for the forum). Customer Case fetches email addresses of users who are Reporters of issues in the selected Jira project.
  3. during processing incoming emails sent to the forum mailbox. Customer Case uses the email addresses from the incoming emails for creating requests / comments in Customer Case and their further adding into Jira (as new issues / comments).

If the email address fetched from the incoming email is already mapped to the user account, Customer Case does not execute additional operations on it.

Using email address

I. Customer Case uses the email address for mapping requests and comments to the specific user account. Additionally, the app uses the email address to add new issues in Jira or post new comments to existing issues upon appearance of new requests / comments in Customer Case.

II. Customer Case uses the email address to notify users in the following situations:

  1. request submitted confirmation
  2. new comment added
  3. issue status changed
  4. new participant added
  5. account recovery
  6. forum access restrictions applied

III. Customer Cases uses the email address of the user when he/she comments on the issue in Jira Cloud on the Customer Case tab. The submitted comment is added as a new comment to the corresponding request in Customer Case.

IV. Customer Case uses the email address to process the incoming emails and create new requests / new comments in Customer Case itself and in Jira.

V. Customer Case uses the email address of users who submit new issues in Jira and create the corresponding requests in Customer Case with the mapping to the correct user.

The email sending/receiving occurs through Postmark (please see its GDPR terms). Customer Case passes the email address to Postmark API which further initiates the email sending to addressees. The incoming emails are processed by Postmark too. The user sends an email to the mailbox (of the forum), Postmark fetches the content of email and the sender's email address. Then it triggers a webhook and passes an email address to Customer Case. This email address is further used for mapping requests/comments in Customer Case to Jira entities (issues/comments).

Storing email addresses

The app stores email addresses in the encrypted AWS RDS database instance. The app uses this value (email address) for the correct mapping requests / comments in Customer Case and Jira Cloud.


StiltSoft company may disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas.


StiltSoft company may periodically update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address fetched from your social account profile or by placing a prominent notice on our site.
