2. Privacy Note

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices.

2.1. What information do we collect and how do we use it?

We collect your personal information automatically submitted by your web browser (IP address, browser version, referring pages etc.), which will be stored on our server logs for no longer than two months. Aggregated and anonymised data will be stored long term in our server statistics. Our server is based in Seattle, WA, USA.

We use technology to detect whether you have ad blocking software installed, so that we can optimise your user experience. However, we don't store the result of the detection.

We collect your personal information whenever you submit it to us through email or contact form (such as name, email address). We will only use it to contact you if you specifically indicate that you wish to be contacted, to confirm that we've received your message, or — if you explicitly confirm through double opt-in — subscribe you to our mailing lists. Any messages that you send to us, or that we send to you, we might retain indefinitely. We will never use your personal information for marketing, or sell it to any third party. We may reveal your personal information to others when required by law (such as to assist a criminal investigation), or by our advertising partners (such as to verify our compliance with their respective agreements).

2.1.1. Mailing lists (Free Kindle, Kindle Deals, Vyrso/Logos and Windows ISO Updates)

We keep your information on our database as long as you are a member of at least one of our mailing lists, no matter whether you are an active subscriber, or have unsubscribed from receiving list emails. We immediately delete information of users that have left all mailing list from our systems permanently.

2.1.2. Amazon and Logos/Vyrso Price Alerts

We keep your information on our database up to the point when the alert conditions are met, when the vendor removes the item from their catalogue, or your price alert expires on your indicated end date. We will send you one email for each alert that you have set up, and afterwards immediately delete your information permanently.

2.1.3. Windows ISO Downloader

The Windows ISO Download Tool connects to our servers to check for updated download lists, and to unlock some downloads on Microsoft's servers. It does not collect or transmit any data to us except for your IP address, the version of the download tool that you are using, and your browser's session ID on microsoft.com.

In return for some of the premium features of the Windows ISO Downloader, you may choose to be a peer on the Luminati network. By doing so you agree to have read and accepted the terms of service of the Luminati SDK SLA. You may opt out of the network from settings.

Joining the Luminati network as a peer is entirely voluntary, and has no impact on the tool's functionality. Your computer only connects to the network after you confirm the initial popup, or enable the service in settings. Your computer becomes a peer only after confirming your choice a second time.

Other tools that we provide for download do not collect any data or connect to our or our partners' servers.

2.2. Do we use cookies?

HeiDoc.net uses only session cookies for temporary user tracking. Closing your browser will delete these cookies. We do not use tracking cookies.

Third parties may be placing and reading cookies on your browser, or using web beacons to collect information, in the course of ads or "Like" buttons being served on our website.

2.3. Your consent

By using HeiDoc.net, you consent to our privacy policy.
