Our Commitment to Privacy

Our Privacy Policy has been developed as an extension of our commitment to combine quality products and services with integrity in dealing with users. The Policy is designed to assist you in the understanding of how we collect, use and protect the personal information provided to us.

What Information Do We Collect?

When you visit our site, we collect two types of information: personal information you actively choose to disclose ("Active Information") and Use information collected, in a way not visible to you, on an aggregate anonymous basis as you and other users browse our site ("Passive Information").

Personally Identifiable Information

This refers to information that lets us know specifically about you i.e. profile information.

  1. Registration

    When you register, we will collect Personally Identifiable Information (such as name, email address, and telephone number). This Personally Identifiable Information is securely stored and may be accessed on our website. You are assigned an identification number and select your own password – both are needed to enter the Site and to access your Contact Information. Please safeguard your password in a secure location as we are not responsible for breaches into the system when access is willingly provided. Personally Identifiable Information is only retrieved when you authorize our app to do so via GitHub OAuth protocols.

  2. Authorizing a Repository

    Repository information will only be acquired when you authorize us to do so. When you authorize a repository to be scanned by our system, we will acquire data regarding the commit logs, issues, issues comments and Repository Contributor Information. Repository Contributor Information will only be accessible to other repository contributors respectively. Under no circumstances will we retrieve any repository code, or commit diffs.

  3. Surveys and Promotions

    Occasionally, you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information to complete surveys and questionnaires or to participate in user polls. We use this information to improve our products and services and to ensure that we’re providing accurate disclosures. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide you newsletters and other marketing information that coincide with your preferences. You may customize your marketing preferences, or let us know if you do not wish to receive any promotional materials, by adjusting your Subscriptions & Email options on the Site.

Active Information You Choose to Provide

In order to gain use of the site (become a "user"), we require GitHub on your behalf to disclose the following information: Name, Email Address, Image. This information is passed between servers using TLS/SSL with no interaction from the browser. The information you provide to us is stored securely.

Passive Information Collected

Analytics Information

We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your browser, including the pages you visit and other information that assists us in improving the Service. We collect and use this analytics information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.

Commercial and Marketing Communications

We use the information we collect or receive to communicate directly with you. We may send you emails containing newsletters, promotions and special offers. If you do not want to receive such email messages, you will be given the option to opt out or change your preferences. We also use your information to send you Service-related emails (e.g., account verification, purchase and billing confirmations and reminders, changes/updates to features of the Service, technical and security notices). You may not opt out of Service-related e-mails.
