Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, why we collect it, and how you can manage, export, and delete your information.

When you use our services, you're trusting us with your information. We understand this is a big responsibility to protect your information and put you in control.

As with many websites, we collect the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail, aggregate information on what pages consumers access or visit, and information volunteered by the user. The information we collect is used to improve the content of our web pages and the quality of our service and is never shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes, except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or if it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.

Introduction

We build a range of services that help people to learn and discover software development in exciting ways.

Our services include:

  • Azobu Web
  • Azobu Platform
  • Azobu Account
  • Azobu Education
  • Azobu App
  • Azobu Forum
  • Azobu Jobs

You can use our services in varied ways to manage your privacy. For example, you can register for an Azobu Account if you want to create and manage content and see more relevant learning materials. Or, you can use many Azobu services when you're logged out or without creating an account at all, like reading the posts or watching the free videos. And across our services, you will be able to adjust your privacy settings to control what we collect and how your information is used.

To help explain things as clearly as possible, we will later add examples, explanatory videos, and definitions for these key terminologies. And if you have any questions about this Privacy Policy, you can contact us.

Key terminologies

Information Gathering and Usage

  • When you register on Azobu we ask for information such as your name, email address, billing address, debit or credit card information. Members who register for the free account are not required to enter a credit card.
  • Azobu uses collected information for the following general purposes: products and services provision, billing, identification and authentication, services improvement, contact, and research.

Cookies

  • A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive.
  • Cookies are required to use the Azobu service.
  • We use cookies to record current session information, but do not use permanent cookies. You are required to re-login to your Azobu account after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against others accidentally accessing your account contents.

Data Storage

Azobu uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run Azobu. Although Azobu owns the code, databases, and all rights to the Azobu website, you retain all rights to your data.

Disclosure

Azobu may disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate the Terms of Service.

Data Location

If you choose to provide Azobu with your information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Changes

We may periodically update this policy. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by sending a notice to the primary email address specified in your Azobu primary account holder information or by placing a prominent notice on our site.


Things you create or provide to us

When you create an Azobu Account, you provide us with personal information that includes your name and a password. You can also choose to add a phone number or payment information to your account. Even if you aren't signed in to an Azobu Account, you might choose to provide us with information — like an email address to receive updates about our services.

We also collect the content you create, upload, or receive from others when using our services. This includes things like the messages you write and receive, photos and videos you save, docs and posts you create, and comments you make.
