Unzip.dev - Privacy Policy

Please read this document carefully before accessing or using Unzip.dev.


English, not Legalese.

Most website terms and privacy documents are unreadable. They are written by and for lawyers, and in our opinion, they are not very effective.

Because we believe in establishing long-term relationships with our readers, we decided to use plain English instead, to make our terms as clear as possible.

Please don't forget that we are real people: take a look at our about page to get to know us a little. We're not perfect, but we're trying, and we genuinely care about you.

When you read “Unzip.dev” or "we" as mentioned in this document, it refers to UNZIP LTD, its affiliates, and agents.

If you have questions or concerns about this document send an email to [email protected].

About this document

This document was adapted from Automattic’s and Changelog’s privacy policies which are shared under a Creative Commons Sharealike license (No warranties are given).

We will make improvements to this document over time. By continuing to use the site, you will implicitly accept any future changes we make to it.

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

At Unzip.dev 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 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:

This document does not cover third-party sites we link to or which link to us. Each of those sites should have its own privacy policy.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please send an email to [email protected].

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Unzip.dev 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website and services. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Unzip.dev also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Unzip.dev choose to interact with it in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at Unzip.dev to provide an email address. Unzip.dev collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Unzip.dev. Unzip.dev 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 and email-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Unzip.dev may collect statistics about the behavior of our visitors. For instance, we track views and clicks on a post to determine usage and engagement. Unzip.dev may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Unzip.dev does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Unzip.dev may collect statistics about the behavior of our visitors. For instance, we track views and clicks.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Unzip.dev 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 Unzip.dev's behalf or to provide services available at Unzip.dev, 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 Unzip.dev, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Unzip.dev 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, Unzip.dev discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Unzip.dev believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Unzip.dev, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Unzip.dev and have supplied your email address, other than sending newsletter issues that you signed up for, Unzip.dev may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new changes to the newsletter or solicit your feedback. 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. Unzip.dev takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
