OctoLinker 4.13.0

Privacy Policy

This privacy policy applies to the browser extension and all related services offered by OctoLinker. For simplicity we use the term OctoLinker for both, the browser extension and the service available at githublinker.herokuapp.com.

What we collect

We do not collect any personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with the OctoLinker.

We do collect non-personal identification information about Users whenever they interact with the OctoLinker. Non-personal identification information include the package requested, the file requested and the registry requested so that interaction with third party APIs such as registry.npmjs.org, bower.herokuapp.com, packagist.org and rubygems.org is possible.

How we use collected information

OctoLinker and its services collect and use information for the following purposes:
  • To improve the OctoLinker

When do we share your information with others?
  • We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer any information to others.
  • For processing or providing products and services to you, but only if those entities receiving your information are contractually obligated to handle the data in ways that are approved by OctoLinker.
  • For processing or providing products and services to you, but only if those entities receiving your information are contractually obligated to handle the data in ways that are approved by OctoLinker.
  • We may publish aggregated statistics based on this information online.
  • When the law requires it. We follow the law whenever we receive requests about you from a government or related to a lawsuit. We’ll notify you when we’re asked to hand over your personal information in this way unless we’re legally prohibited from doing so. When we receive requests like this, we’ll only release your personal information if we have a good faith belief that the law requires us to do so. Nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party’s request to disclose your information.
  • When we believe it is necessary to prevent harm to you or someone else. We will only share your information in this way if we have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of you, our other users, OctoLinker or the public.
  • If our organizational structure or status changes (if we undergo a restructuring, are acquired, or go bankrupt) we may pass your information to a successor or affiliate.
