By visiting our site, accessing our software or using any of our services, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy. This website privacy policy complements the Blob application’s privacy policy and statement of European Union GDPR compliance.

 
The short summary of our privacy policy is:

  • We will collect the bare minimum personal information that we absolutely need.
  • We will use the collected information only for the stated purpose. We will never use your personal information for any marketing use.
  • We will never sell your personal information to anyone.

 

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you visit our site

When you visit our site, we use “Google Analytics” to collect information about your visit. However, we’ve configured Google Analytics to not collect any personally identifiable information about you. Google Analytics will collect non-personal information like your anonymized IP address, the pages you visit on our site, the browser and operating system you use, your screen resolution etc. We do NOT attempt to track your use of our website across different devices (phones, laptopes etc.) and times. We do NOT attempt to combine non-personal information we collect on our site with personally identifiable information from any other source. We do NOT share the information we collect with anyone – we use it only to improve our website.

Google Analytics will place a cookie on your browser. Google’s privacy policy is available here and information about what information Google Analytics collects is available here. You may opt out of this collection by disallowing the Google Analytics cookie.

 

When you leave comments

When you leave a comment on our site, we collect the data you enter in the comment form. We provide the information you enter, your IP address and browser information to a spam checking service. This is solely for the purpose of detecting spam. We retain your comments indefinitely or until you request its removal. We do not use this information for any marketing purposes and do not share it with anybody.

 

When you contact us

When you contact us using the “Contact Us” form on our site, we collect your name, email address, the message subject and the actual message you type in. We also collect your IP address and browser information and provide it to a spam detection service. We use this information only to respond to the message you send us. We do not share this information with anyone. We retain this information indefinitely, or until you ask us to remove it.

 

When you read a blog post or article on our site

Blog posts and articles on this site may include linked or embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) that resides at other sites. If you click on such links or view such embedded content from our websites, this is identical to visiting that other website to view it. These other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content. We do not control the behavior of such sites. We try hard to never link to known malicious websites, but cannot guarantee that any external links you follow from our website will be safe.

 

When you purchase or download our software

When you purchase our software, we collect your name to associate it with the license key and your email address to email the license key to you. We retain this information indefinitely, unless you uninstall our software and request us to delete it.

We use external payment processors (PayPal, Stripe and Amazon Pay) to process your payments. These payment processors ask you to enter payment information to complete the purchase. The payment information you have to provide depends on the method of payment you use. For example, PayPal will ask you to log into your PayPal account. Stripe will ask you to enter your credit card information and billing address. Our website and servers never see your payment information, so we cannot and do not store it on our servers. The privacy of your payment information is managed by the privacy policy of the payment processor. Stripe’s privacy policy is available here, PayPal’s privacy policy is available here. Amazon Pay’s privacy policy is available here.

When you download our software (free or purchased), we generate a Google Analytics event to indicate this, as described in “when you visit our site”.

 

When you activate or install our software

When you purchase any software we sell, you get a license key that needs to be activated. When you activate your license key, we communicate with our license servers to ensure this is a valid key that hasn’t already been used before. To do this, we collect and transmit the license key, your IP address, computer name and product name & version for the software you are installing. We keep this information in our license server forever, unless you uninstall our software and request us to remove it. We use this information only to validate your purchased license key and to provide you support in case of problems.

When you install our software (free or purchased), we generate a Google Analytics event to indicate this, as described in “when you visit our site”.

 

When you use our software

Our software accesses and indexes your digital storage locations on your behalf. This may include local storage devices and web based accounts that contain your personal digital content. The privacy policy of the Blob application itself is documented separately here, but the short summary is that nothing about your content is ever sent to our servers.

 

When you update our software

Our software has a built-in mechanism to check for and install updates that fix problems and add new capabilities. By default, we enable the option to check for updates. You may disable it by using the “Help” and “Updates” menu option. If you are running a paid version of our software, we will validate the license key before updating it. To do this, we will transmit the license key, computer name, software name & version and your IP address to our license server. We do this only to validate your license key and to provide you support in case of problems.

When you request or install updates for our software (free or purchased), we generate a Google Analytics event to indicate this, as described in “when you visit our site”.

 

Collection and Use of Children’s Personal Information

Who we share your data with

How we protect your data

We store personally identifiable information (e.g. for license validation) in databases stored on the server that hosts our website. We use standard industry-wide practices such as firewalls, website safety monitoring tools, encryption and the most secure version of Secure Socket Layers to protect it. However, we acknowledge that despite our best efforts, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases and cannot guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to our site over the internet.
