1. Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information from you are to provide you with the products and services made available through the Service, to communicate with you, and to manage your registered user account, if you have one.
We may also use your information to operate, maintain, and enhance the Service and its features, and to provide customer support to users.
2. Information Collected Upon Registration
You provide us with information when you use the Service, register for an account, make a transaction on the Service, or send us customer service-related requests. If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Site, you will be required to become a registered user, in certain cases pay a fee, and to submit certain personally identifiable information to Deta. This happens in a number of instances, such as when you sign up for Deta, or if you desire to receive marketing materials and information. Information that we may collect in such instances may include your IP address, full user name, password, email address, city, time zone, credit card and other billing information, preferences, telephone number, and other information that you decide to provide us with. We may link such information with other information you provide about yourself.
3. Use of Contact Information
In addition, we may use your contact information to market to you, provide you with information about our products and services, or otherwise communicate with you, including but not limited to our Service. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such information or communications from us, please unfollow us, send your request to us by email at [email protected], delete your account, or follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.
4. Log Data
When you use our Service, including visiting the Site, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type or the domain from which you are visiting, the web-pages you visit, the search terms you use, and any advertisements on which you click. For most users accessing the Internet from an Internet service provider the IP address will be different every time you log on. We use Log Data to monitor the use of the Site and of our Service, and for the Site’s technical administration. We do not associate your IP address with any other personally identifiable information to identify you personally.
5. Cookies and Automatically Collected Information
Like many websites, we also use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve the Site and our Service. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk. Deta may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with the Site and our Service, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on the Site, and to improve our Service. A session cookie enables certain features of our Service and is deleted from your computer when you disconnect from or leave the Site. A persistent cookie remains after you disconnect from or leave the Site and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept cookies from Deta, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Deta Services to their fullest potential. Deta does not process or respond to web browsers’ “do not track” signals or other similar transmissions that indicate a request to disable online tracking of users who use Deta.
We may also use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.

Deta is very concerned about safeguarding the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information, as well as other data you decide to provide or store in our Service. Private data access is only allowed to selected authorized employees, and we only access it after explicit permission from the user or when we deem it necessary to protect the integrity of our Service. No sensitive data (secret tokens, keys, etc.) is stored in plain text. They are either encrypted at rest or only their hashed values are stored. However, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot and do not guarantee that information about you will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our administrative, physical, and electronic safeguards. We will make any legally-required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored personal data to you via email or conspicuous posting on this Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.
Your personal data may be transferred, stored and processed in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), United States (“US”) or any other country in which our service providers maintain facilities. By using our domains, you consent to any transfer, storing or processing of personal data outside of your country of residence and outside the EEA. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this policy.
To ensure the continuous operation of our Service, we will store your personal data until you decide to delete it in the Service, or request us to delete it. To request the deletion of your personal data, please follow the instructions on how to delete your account, in your account settings.
