At Orbicule your security and privacy are our priority. We use a design based on data minimisation and will only ask the most basic information for your account creation. We are transparent in the gathering and processing of your personal data. Consequently, we have decided to adhere the highest standard of privacy by complying with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and making those rights available to all of our users, regardless of their location, so you can know that both your Macs and your data are safe with us.
If you have any concerns about how we protect and process your data, please do not hesitate to contact us at

1. The information we receive and how we use it

Undercover anti-theft
We only request the minimum amount of data to create your account; however, it is important to highlight that the only way for us to identify you as a user is through the e-mail you used to register, which will be the official channel of communication between us. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the basis for us processing personal data is the provision of a service.

Once the software is installed on your Mac, we need your express consent to initiate the tracking functionalities. Also, you will have full remote control of the device's location tracking, camera and screenshot functionality, using the Privacy settings that can be found in your account at A device marked as 'stolen' sends technical identification data to our servers along with the geo-localisation, images and files you decide to retrieve from it.

Currently, we have one mailing list for commercial information for clients. This list is intended solely for our exclusive use and we do not disclose any information to third-parties. You can unsubscribe by going into your account settings at

2. Third-party services and whom we send information to

At Orbicule, we work with renowned international organisations to offer a better service and an enhanced user experience; thus, we must transfer some data to third-parties. Such transfers are specific and regulated as per the terms and conditions of each of such organisations that are obliged to provide the same level of security and protection we do, and report any issue to us.

We use the services of Google Analytics and Google Adwords to obtain anonymised information about surfing our website. No personally identifiable information is sent, except for your IP address.

3. Authorised use and multi-user accounts

Undercover is a security application aimed at facilitating the search for and access to lost devices of our users. The purpose of Undercover is not to register or track people down, and according to our terms and conditions, you agree not to use it for that purpose. Likewise, you may only install Orbicule in devices you are legally authorised to do so.

In the case of our multi-user accounts, you should be aware that all administrators may enable your devices as lost. At any time, you can know who the administrators of your account are by checking your account's information in the application's panel. If you have any problems with this functionality contact us within your panel account to be removed.

4. Exercise of your rights

At Orbicule, we respect your ownership over your personal data; therefore, you can exercise your right to access, modify and remove it easily from the Undercover HQ portal. If you wish to cancel the processing of your personal data, you only have to uncheck your devices as stolen because Orbicule does not perform passive tracking of your devices, unless you expressly require it. If you decide to remove the personal data associated with your Orbicule account, you can do so in the Undercover HQ portal. If you wish to request the removal of all your personal data, you can request a full data deletion by sending an email to privacy(at) Such requests can only be made once every two (2) months.

You have the right to data portability so we send to you all the personal data you may have shared with us in a machine-readable format. You can exercise this right once every two (2) months; to do so click here.

If you decide to close an account, we delete all your data. Nevertheless, we keep a record of payment history, data deletion and portability requests as a backup for legal reasons. The lawfulness of these backups is based on the compliance of a legal obligation.
