In order to analyse your use of the Products, we collect and use third-party analytics services to automatically collect certain technical non-personal data about your use of the Products. Such data does not allows us to identify you in any manner. The non-personal data collected by us and third-party analytics providers includes the following information (list non-exhaustive):

    • Internet service provider
    • Country

IP address

Whenever you visit a website (including cancode.io), the computer from which the web pages are served needs to know your computer’s public network address so that it can send the pages you request to your browser. The public network address associated with your computer is called its “public IP Address” and is sent automatically each time you access any website. From a computer’s IP Address, it is usually possible to determine the general geographic location of that computer but often not the specific computer and if multiple people use the computer not the specific user (although if your IP Address is unique to you and is published somewhere or if you later identify yourself while using the same IP Address, it is possible that IP Address could identify you).

 

In many jurisdictions (including California, the EU and Australia), your IP Address is considered to be personal data, and we treat it accordingly.

Our website may contain hyperlinks to other websites by third parties. We do not control these third party websites or any of the content contained on those websites. Once you have left our website, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide.

You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement for the websites you visit.

We will use non-personal data for the following purpose:

    • To investigate and help prevent security issues and abuse
    • To develop and provide additional features to the Products
    • To personalise the Products for your specific needs

3.4 Combined with personal data and de-identified data

In case your non-personal data is combined with certain elements of your personal data in a way that allows us to identify you, we will handle such data as personal data.

If your personal data is de-identified in a way that it can no longer be associated with an identified or identifiable natural person, it will not be considered personal data and we may use it for any business purpose.
