Inquiries about the register and the data contained should be directed to the above addresses.

Name of the register

Code::Stats (later "the service") user database.

Location of the register

The user database is stored on a server hosted by Online SAS in France.

The purpose of data collection

Data is collected about the users of the service to enable and improve the service's functionality. User data is not used for any other purpose.

Data contained in the register

The service collects the following data from the users:

Data sources

All data is provided by the user. No data is collected from other sources.

Sharing of data with 3rd parties

Data is never shared with 3rd parties, except in the following cases:

Transfer of data to outside the EU or ETA

Data will not be moved outside the EU or ETA, except in the following cases:

Security of the register

Logins and communication with the server are secured with SSH. On the server, the database is protected by a further login known to only the register holder. Passwords in the database are hashed using Bcrypt with a randomized salt to prevent their decryption in case of a data breach. If a strong password is used, it cannot be feasibly decrypted.

Physical security of the server in the datacenter is managed by Online SAS.

Register data requests

All users of the register have a right to request a copy of the data stored about them. To make such a request, send a free-form written request to the contact details provided above.

Note about analytics

The service uses Google Analytics to gather statistics about its use. The data is not used to track any single user. If you wish to prevent such data collection, you can use an extension such as Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on or uBlock Origin in your browser to block Google Analytics. Please refer to the Google Analytics data safeguarding page for more information.

Google does not have access to the data register itself.

Note about advertisements

The service may contain advertisements. These advertisements are handled by 3rd party advertisement providers. The advertisement providers may use the advertisements to collect certain information about the user. This collection of data and the behaviour of the advertisement providers are not under direct control of the service. If you suspect abuse from an advertisement provider, please contact the service administrators for assistance.

Advertisement providers are never given access to the data register itself.

Note about email

Emails from the service are sent using either Mailgun by Rackspace Inc, a US based company, or Gmail by Alphabet Inc, a US based company. This means user details contained in the emails (such as the user's email address) are sent to the email service as a necessary part of the email delivery process. If you do not wish to have your email address sent to either of these services, you can remove your email address in the preferences.

Changes to the privacy policy

This page holds the most up to date version of the privacy policy. We ask that you check this page for changes regularly. In the case of major changes to the policy, all users that have given their email address will be notified by email beforehand.

This privacy policy was last changed on the 2nd of August 2016.
