Privacy Policy

Below is our Privacy Policy, which incorporates and clarifies these principles.

Who We Are and What This Policy Covers

Hello! ¡Hola! Olá! Salut! こんにちは!Hallo! We are the people behind this service designed to allow anyone — people, small business owners and enterprises — to take full advantage of the power and promise of the open web. Our mission is to provide useful tool for everyone who wants to make the world a bit more interesting and information accessible.

This Privacy Policy applies to information that we collect about you when you use our website: descr.be and its subdomains.

Throughout this Privacy Policy we'll refer to our website as “Service”.

Below we explain how we collect, use, and share information about you, along with the choices that you have with respect to that information.

Information We Collect

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to provide our Service, to communicate with you, or to make our Service better.

Let’s go over the information that we collect.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

Information You Provide to Us

Information We Collect Automatically

Information We Collect from Other Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through another service (like Facebook), we will receive information from that service (such as your name, basic profile information) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available. We use this information to log you in and build your initial profile, which you can later modify.

How and Why We Use Information

Purposes for Using Information

Legal Bases for Collecting and Using Information

    A note here for those in the European Union about our legal grounds for processing information about you under EU data protection laws, which is that our use of your information is based on the grounds that:
  1. The use is necessary in order to fulfil our commitments to you under the applicable terms of service or other agreements with you or is necessary to administer your account — for example, in order to enable access to our website on your device or charge you for a paid plan; or
  2. The use is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or
  3. The use is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another person; or
  4. We have a legitimate interest in using your information — for example, to provide and update our Service; to improve our Service so that we can offer you an even better user experience; to safeguard our Service; to communicate with you; to measure, gauge, and improve the effectiveness of our advertising; and to understand our user retention and attrition; to monitor and prevent any problems with our Service; and to personalize your experience; or
  5. You have given us your consent — for example before we place certain cookies on your device and access and analyze them later on, as described in our Cookie Policy.

Sharing Information

How We Share Information

Information Shared Publicly

Information that you choose to make public is — you guessed it — disclosed publicly. That means, of course, that information like your public profile with contact information, posts, other content that you make public on our website all available to others – and we hope you get a lot of views! Public information may also be indexed and cached by search engines or used by third parties. Please keep all of this in mind when deciding what you would like to share.

How Long We Keep Information

We generally discard information about you when we no longer need the information for the purposes for which we collect and use it — which are described in the section above on How and Why We Use Information — and we are not legally required to continue to keep it.

For example, we keep the web server logs that record information about a visitor to our website, such as the visitor’s IP address, browser type, and operating system up to 14 days. We retain the logs for this period of time in order to, among other things, analyze traffic to our website and investigate issues if something goes wrong.

Security

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Service for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
