Description of sumApp Services

Greater than the Sum ("sumApp", "we", "our", "us") developed the sumApp website ("Website", "Services") to help you solve complex problems by gathering the data needed for visualizing and tracking key relationships and connections. However, be responsible in what you add to sumApp. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items listed below appear on your account or get linked to from your account (things like spam, viruses, or hate content). If you find material on sumApp that you believe violates our terms of service, please contact us at christine@greaterthanthesum.com.

sumApp (“we” or “us”) provides two types of Services:

“Subscription Services”, which are the series of proprietary computer software programs developed by us as delivered to you that facilitate and automate the process of conducting surveys, polls, intercepts, and reports (“Software”), products and related systems, security, updates and improvements thereto, and support services accessed by you using a web browser and the Internet. Subscription Services are specified in a valid ordering document executed by you and sumApp (an “Order”) and are purchased on a monthly or  annual basis as set forth in an Order; and“Professional Services”, which are Services other than Subscription Services that we perform or provide, including the development and delivery of certain deliverables (“Deliverables”) specified in an Order. Professional Services are purchased on a project basis.

For purposes of these Terms, data includes all survey responses, reports, and any other information input or generated on your behalf in connection with the Services (“Data”).

Subject to your compliance with these Terms and your payment of any applicable fees, effective upon the execution of an applicable Order, sumApp gives you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software that is provided to you by sumApp as part of the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling you to use and enjoy the benefit of the Services as provided by sumApp, in the manner permitted by these Terms of Services.

sumApp reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

Prices of all Services, including but not limited to monthly subscription plan fees to the Services, are subject to change upon 30 days notice from us. Such notice may be provided by sending email or by posting the changes to the sumApp website.

sumApp shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties.

All paid plans must enter a valid payment account. Free accounts are not required to provide payment account information.

You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation. You can cancel your account at any time by clicking on the “My Account” link in the navigation bar at the left of the screen. The “My Account” screen allows you to either downgrade your account to the free, Tier I plan or to ‘Freeze’ your subscription.

Automatic Renewal. Unless you notify sumApp before the end of the applicable subscription period that you want to cancel a Tier II-Tier III Account, your Account subscription will automatically renew and you authorize us to collect the then-applicable annual or monthly subscription fee for such Account (as well as any taxes) using any credit card or other payment mechanism we have on record for you. 

Your Data

Copyright and Content Ownership. We claim no intellectual property rights over the material you provide to sumApp. Your projects, profile and other materials uploaded remain yours. However, by sharing sumApp data in a map publicly, you agree to allow others to view your Content. By granting others access to your project or by setting your projects to be viewed publicly, you agree to allow others to view, download and replicate your project. You consent for your project and its data to be viewed by us as needed to run the Services. You give us the permissions we need to do those things solely to provide the Services. This permission also extends to trusted third parties we work with to provide the Services.

We may not monitor or control the content posted via the Services and, we cannot take responsibility for such content. However, we reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce the Terms of Services, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of sumApp, its users and the public. Please note that, even in such case, sumApp shall not disclose personally identifying information to third parties except in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

Use of the Services

You are responsible for controlling access to your account, including by creating a strong password, protecting that password, and preventing unauthorized account usage.

You are responsible for creating backups of your Data.

If using the Services to email third parties, you will ensure that the third parties have validly consented to receive communications from you or you have a valid legal basis for contacting such third parties.

Portability and Migratability 

You may obtain a complete copy of your entire dataset at any time in either .csv or .json format via the Data Download page of your account.

sumApp structures and exports the data you’ve gathered in sumApp in such a way that you can link it directly into Kumu.io, however it is possible to aggregate more data within sumApp than can be migrated through a browser or than will load into Kumu. If your link to Kumu consistently causes your browser to time out, or if Kumu takes so long to load your dataset that the browser freezes, you will need to take actions to reduce the data-load. Actions may include reducing the number of time-frames you are using for time-tagging, or removing inactive members or others. sumApp is not responsible for ensuring that your dataset will migrate or for guiding you in taking action to mitigate the issue.

Third-Party Platform Compatibility

sumApp data will make every reasonable effort, but cannot guarantee that the data gathered through sumApp will all show up in the intended way in Kumu or that Kumu will handle it the way you expect. To this same effect we cannot guarantee sumApp data will appear as intended on any future service that is compatible or partners with sumApp software. 

Responsibility of Website Visitors

sumApp has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the Website, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects.

Information We Collect, and How We Use It

Website Visitors

To simply browse our Website, you are not required to provide any personally-identifiable information. However, we may collect non-personally-identifiable information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. sumApp’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how sumApp’s visitors use its website and to monitor and improve our Website and Services. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Registered Users

When you register for sumApp, we collect personal information including name, username, email, account password, account name and date of registration. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, information about user’s computer, geographic location, and other standard web log information. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.   

We rely upon a number of legal grounds to ensure that our use of Personal Data and data collected by you is compliant with applicable law. We use Personal Data to facilitate the business relationships we have with our Users, to comply with our financial regulatory and other legal obligations, and to pursue our legitimate business interests. The following list sets out the business purposes that we have identified as legitimate. In determining the content of this list, we balanced our interests against the legitimate interests and rights of the individuals whose Personal Data we process. We:

  • Respond to inquiries, send service notices and provide customer support;

  • Promote, analyze, modify and improve our products, systems, and tools, and develop new products and services;

  • Analyze and advertise our products and services;

When we collect business contact details through our participation at trade shows or other events, we may use the information to follow-up with you regarding an event, send you information that you have requested on our products and services and, with your permission, include you on our marketing information campaigns.   

Aggregated Statistics

We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Website. However, sumApp will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.         


When paying for an account subscription, sumApp uses a third party payment processor, Stripe, to assist in processing your personally identifiable payment information. We do not receive or store credit card information into our servers. These transactions and Stripe's use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy (available at stripe.com/privacy) .

Where We Store Your Information

If you are located outside the United States, the information that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored and processed at, a destination in the United States. By submitting information, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Disclosing Your Information    

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

sumApp discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to         those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on sumApp’s behalf or to provide services available at the Website, and (ii) that contractually commit to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Data they process on our behalf. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using sumApp, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. sumApp will not sell any data gathered by sumApp to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, sumApp discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when sumApp believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of sumApp, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of sumApp and have supplied your email address, sumApp may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with sumApp and our services. You can opt-out of receiving these email communications from us by contacting us at christine@greaterthanthesum.com . If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. sumApp takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.   

Business Transfers

If sumApp, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that sumApp goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of sumApp may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Your Rights and Choices

Your Data Protection Rights.

Depending on your location and subject to applicable law, you may have the following rights with regard to the Personal Data we control about you:

  • The right to request that sumApp rectifies or updates your Personal Data that is inaccurate, incomplete or outdated;

  • The right to request that sumApp erase your Personal Data in certain circumstances provided by law;

  • The right to request that sumApp restrict the use of your Personal Data in certain circumstances, such as while sumApp considers another request that you have submitted (including a request that sumApp make an update to your Personal Data); and

  • The right to request that we export to another company, where technically feasible, your Personal Data that we hold in order to provide Services to you.

Where the processing of your Personal Data is based on your previously given consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. You may also have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data on grounds relating to your particular situation.

Communications Preferences

We offer those who provide personal contact information a means to choose how we use the information provided.

An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccuracies in personal information stored or processed by us should direct his/her query to the account owners (the data controller). We will retain personal information that we store and process on behalf of our account owners for as long as needed to provide the Services to our users. We will retain and use this personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received.

If you are an account owner or otherwise provide us with personal information in connection with your use of our Websites or Services, we will delete this information upon your request, provided that, notwithstanding such request, this information may be retained for as long as you maintain an account for our Services, or as needed to provide you with our Services, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

Security and Retention

We make reasonable efforts to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk associated with the processing of Personal Data. We maintain organizational, technical and administrative measures designed to protect Personal Data within our organization against unauthorized access, destruction, loss, alteration or misuse. Personal Data is only accessible to a limited number of personnel who need access to the information to perform their duties. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of your account has been compromised), please contact us immediately.

If you are a sumApp User, we retain Personal Data as long as we are providing the Services to you. We retain Personal Data after we cease providing Services to you, even if you close your sumApp account, to the extent necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations. We also retain Personal Data to comply with our tax, accounting, and financial reporting obligations. Where we retain data, we do so in accordance with any limitation periods and records retention obligations that are imposed by applicable law.

Privacy Policy Changes    

Although most changes are likely to be minor, sumApp may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in sumApp’s sole discretion. sumApp encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
