We collect limited information.
Registration Data. If you sign up for privacyscore services, you
may provide personal information such as your name and email address. We do not
associate any of this information with information about your activities through
No Log Files. We do not log individual clickstream data, such as your IP address, when you use our services.
Cookies. When you use our services, our systems may set a "cookie"
(a small text file) in your browser, which includes a unique number that helps us recognize your computer from
Information collected through browser add-ons. If you use a privacyscore
browser add-on in the default mode, your browser will ask our server to provide
a privacyscore for each page that you visit. Your request may transmit the URL of
the page you are viewing, but this is not stored by us. No cookie or other identifier
is placed on your computer, and your IP address is not stored.
You have the option to participate anonymously in the privacyscore panel and send tracking data
to us to make privacyscores better. When this option is enabled, the add-on will
scan each page that you visit for tracking companies, and send data relating to
tracking interactions to our database. No cookie or other identifier is placed on
your computer. Our system may receive an IP address when the add-on requests scores
or transmits tracking data. We use IP addresses to screen out invalid transmissions,
so we can ensure the quality of privacyscore results. Our systems are designed so
that IP addresses cannot be associated with browsing history information. The add-on
does not operate and does not send data when you are in incognito or private browsing
Third-Party Data Collection. We do not allow any other company
to collect information through our services for their own use. We may link to third
Analytics. We use Google Analytics, which Google provides as a
free service. Although Google processes and stores usage information about the use
of this site (all the same information described above), it does so strictly as
our agent. Google has agreed to refrain from
any other use or sharing of this information, and Google obscures (or "anonymizes") IP addresses they collect in order to prevent the association of your IP address with your activities on our service. Read Google's policy. Visit this page to opt out of data collection by Google Analytics.
We use your data only to provide the services that you request.
If you use a PrivacyChoice service that requires registration, we use the information
you provide solely to process and fulfill the services we provide. If you have provided
your email address, we will use your email address to send you updates and alerts
about our services.

about any individual user, computer or device. To operate the service, we also may make your information
