Privacy Policy

7 minutes read

Your privacy is very important to us. At TrustProof we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

Trust Proof Pro operates several websites including TrustProof.pro. It is Trust Proof’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Trust Proof collects non-personally-identifying 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. Trust Proof’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Trust Proof’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Trust Proof may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Trust Proof also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Trust Proof only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Trust Proof’s websites choose to interact with Trust Proof in ways that require Trust Proof to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Trust Proof gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Trust Proof updates via email, we collect their emails. For example, when you to sign up for an account, we ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. When visitors comment on our blog, we ask them to provide a username and email address. For those who wish to receive Trust Proof updates via email, we collect their emails.

In each case, Trust Proof collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Trust Proof. Trust Proof 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Trust Proof may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Trust Proof may monitor the most popular pages on the TrustProof.pro site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Trust Proof may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Trust Proof does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Information We Share

Trust Proof 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 Trust Proof’s behalf or to provide services available at Trust Proof’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 Trust Proof’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Trust Proof 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, Trust Proof discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Trust Proof believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Trust Proof, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an Trust Proof website and have supplied your email address, Trust Proof 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 Trust Proof 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.

Trust Proof takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, as discussed below.

Information Security

We work hard to protect our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure, or destruction of information we hold, in particular:

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Trust Proof uses cookies to help Trust Proof identify and track visitors, their usage of Trust Proof website, and their website access preferences. Trust Proof visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Trust Proof’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Trust Proof’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Trust Proof, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Trust Proof 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 Trust Proof may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

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 Trust Proof and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

When this Privacy Policy Applies

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by Trust Proof and its affiliates, including services Trust Proof provides on mobile devices, and services offered on other sites, but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including other sites linked to our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags, and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads.

Compliance and cooperation with regulatory authorities

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also adhere to several self-regulatory frameworks. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Trust Proof may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Trust Proof’s sole discretion. Trust Proof encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
