Privacy Policy

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

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand 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 may share anonymous information with affiliates, but it won’t include any sort of information that can identify you.

  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

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.

Code Branch operates several applications, products and services including codebranch.co, https://estimate.codebranch.co/, and others. It is Code Branch's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our products, applications and services.

Users

Like most website operators, app developers and product owners, Code Branch  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. Code Branch’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Code Branch’s users use its website. From time to time, Code Branch may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

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

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users to Code Branch’s websites, applications and services choose to interact with Code Branch in ways that require Code Branch to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Code Branch gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who sign up for a blog to provide a username and email address. To provide phone numbers, addresses, names in order to be contacted by our sales department. Those who engage in transactions with Code Branch are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Code Branch  collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the interaction with Code Branch. Code Branch does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain activities.

 

 

Aggregated Statistics

Code Branch may collect statistics about the behavior of users to its websites, applications or products. For instance, Code Branch may monitor the most popular feature of a product, site or use a spam detection tool or service to help identify spam. Code Branch may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Code Branch does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Code Branch 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 Code Branch’s behalf or to provide services, 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 Code Branch ’s websites, products, applications or services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Code Branch 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, Code Branch discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Code Branch believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Code Branch , third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Code Branch website and have supplied your email address, Code Branch 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 Code Branch 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. Code Branch takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
