Your privacy is critically important to us. At codebeat we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We too dislike services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what's visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

codebeat sp. z o.o. ("codebeat") operates codebeat.co. It is codebeat's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

This Privacy Policy covers codebeat's treatment of personal information that codebeat gathers when you are on the codebeat website and when you use codebeat services. This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that codebeat does not own or control, or to individuals that codebeat does not employ or manage.

The column on the right provides a short explanation of the paragraphs and is not legally binding.

Basically,

codebeat is a service created by developers, for developers. We know how important privacy is to you, because it's important to us.

That's why we're committed to ensuring the information we collect from you - and that we ask that you provide to us from time to time - is both necessary and reasonable to provide you with the best services possible.

Website visitors

Like most website operators, codebeat collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available - e.g. browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We do this for purposes of understanding and improving our users' experience. While we may, from time to time, make certain aggregate user information available (e.g. releasing information on our site regarding user trends and site analytics), we will never release any information identifying any individual site visitor or sell or transfer any of this information other than as described below.

Basically,

We collect information to make codebeat website useful for you.

Gathering of personally-identifying information

Certain visitors to codebeat's websites may elect to sign up to use codebeat's services offered via one or more sites. In these instances, we are required to verify that you are indeed an actual person, and that you are (and will continue to be) in compliance with codebeat's Terms and Conditions. In order to do so, we may ask that you provide us with certain personally-identifying information for such purposes. The amount and type of information that codebeat gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at codebeat.co to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with codebeat - by purchasing access to the premium features - are asked to provide additional information, including (as necessary) personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, codebeat collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the interaction. codebeat does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

codebeat discloses personally-identifying information (actual or potential) only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations (i) that need to know that information in order to process it on codebeat's behalf or to provide services available at codebeat's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using codebeat's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. codebeat will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, codebeat discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when codebeat believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of codebeat, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a codebeat website and have supplied your email address, codebeat may occasionally send you notices to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up-to-date with what's going on with codebeat and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. 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. codebeat takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Basically,

We collect your registration and user profile data. Our servers also collect log information used to make the website faster and better. Our servers need to enter third party apps in order to provide you with a service you want us to deliver. If you sign up for codebeat services we need to collect certain data to ensure you are human and you can pay for the services requested. We do not sell your information to anyone. However, we may release other information to authorities where required by law.

E-mail Communication

codebeat is very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission, as detailed in the "Sharing Your Information" section below. codebeat may send out e-mails with codebeat-related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions. You may also receive notification e-mails from codebeat, which inform you of actions (e.g. team member actions) that have been performed on the site. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us, please visit the Email Preferences section of your User Profile and/or follow the instructions contained in the unwanted e-mail message. However, please note that in all cases you will continue to receive all system e-mails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.

Basically,

We will send you emails based on your profile settings. From time to time we may need to send emails to all our users.

Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. codebeat cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or e-mail address is.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. We recommend that you leave the cookies activated because cookies allow you to use some of codebeat's coolest features.

Basically,

To remember you, our system will give you a cookie. It's safe.

Business transfers

If codebeat, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that codebeat 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 codebeat may continue to use your personal information so long as it complies with the custodial obligations in this policy.

Basically,

We expect to be around for a long, long time. But in case codequest ceases to operate (or in the event the business is acquired), you acknowledge that any successor may continue to operate according to the service provider obligations in this Privacy Policy.

Keeping Information Secure

Your codebeat account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. Protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.

Only employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to it. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices.

Basically,

Your account is protected by an encrypted password. We keep it secure, you must also keep it safe. Our employees may not access your account unless required to do a specific job.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by codebeat and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Basically,

We may, from time to time, place ads on the website from third parties. Please be aware that some of our ad partners may set cookies that allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time you receive an ad. These cookies are not generated by codebeat. Again, if you don't want to allow third party cookies please adjust your browser settings accordingly.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

codebeat may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time, at its sole discretion. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If we make changes to the Privacy Policy, we will notify you by posting an announcement on the codebeat website so you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances if any, it is disclosed.

Basically,

Privacy policy may change.
