Privacy Policy

Web Risk Info ("WRI") helps our users make informed decisions while browsing the web, by way of green, yellow or red "traffic light" showing the reputation of each website they visit. The Web Risk Info Services ("Services"), offered through our browser add-on extensions ("Software"), involve the collection and analysis of data necessary for the supply of the Services.

This Privacy Policy ("Policy") is intended to make our users fully aware of the data we collect, the way it is stored, used, and shared, and our users’ rights in relation to such data and practices. We greatly value our users and their privacy rights, and we encourage all of our users to read and become familiar with this Policy so that they may understand those rights and how to protect them.

By installing the Software, you acknowledge our collection, storage and use of your Personal Information and Non-Personal Information in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. IF YOU OBJECT TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT INSTALL THE WEB RISK INFO EXTENSION.

Information collected

WRI goes to great lengths, and invests substantial resources, to avoid disclosing Personal Information. This includes the use of various state-of-the-art anonymization, data cleaning and aggregation techniques to identify and remove Personal Information from information we collect with the goal of storing only Non-Personal Information.

When you install the Software for the first time WRI automatically creates for you a random (anonymous) identifier that will be used later to connect you with the requests from the Services. Internet Protocol (IP) address irreversibly encrypted and hashed on a daily basis as well as trimmed to permanently remove specific location information other than country, city & postal code, hence we cannot trace the IP back to an individual or device. While using the Software it sends information about the identifier, the date and time of the request and the host name for each site you visit to WRI servers for identifying the visited web sites and retrieving their rating information. This information will be stored only temporarily and will be erased after a month.

Usage of cookies

WRI uses so-called "cookies" in connection with the Services. Cookies are pieces of information stored on your computer's hard drive or browser to enable WRI to identify the users. The use of cookies is a standard in this area of business.

Cookies do not enable any access to and/or inspection of other information on your computer. If you do not wish to receive cookies, or want to be notified of when they are placed, you may set your web browser to do so, if your browser so permits.

1) satisfy any applicable law and regulation,
