Any and all capitalized terms used in this Privacy Policy that are not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Terms and Conditions.


The categories of information we collect can include:

· Information you provide to us directly. We may collect information, such as your name, phone number, payment information, location information, e-mail address, software code, and other data when you register for or otherwise use DevInsight. We may also collect any communications between you and us and any other information you provide to us. By using the DevInsight Services, you consent to the recording, storage and disclosure of such communications you send or receive for these purposes.

· Data collected through the use of the DevInsight Services. We collect information about how you use the DevInsight Services, your actions on the DevInsight Services, and content you post to the DevInsight Services, including the groups you belong to, your interaction with others on the DevInsight Services, and any submissions you import, post, submit, or otherwise make available on the DevInsight Services (“User Submissions"). Please remember that we may, but have no obligation to, monitor, record, and store User Submissions in order to protect your safety or the safety of other users, to assist with regulatory or law enforcement efforts, or to protect and defend our rights and property.

· Information we collect from third-party services. When you interact with the DevInsight Services through various third-party services, including without limitation Facebook, Twitter, and Github, we may receive information from those services that you permit the third-party service to share with us. The data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the third-party service. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our website or DevInsight Services.

· Location Information. When you access the DevInsight Services, we may – with your permission - access, collect, monitor and/or remotely store “location data,” which may include GPS coordinates (e.g. latitude and/or longitude) or similar information. Location data may convey to us information about how you browse and use the DevInsight Services. Some features of the DevInsight Services, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if use or availability of location data is impaired or disabled.

We use this information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Merico Services, as well as to communicate directly with you, such as to send you email messages and push notifications. We may also send you DevInsight Services-related emails or messages (e.g., account verification, change or updates to features of the DevInsight Services, technical and security notices). For more information about your communication preferences, see “Control Over Your Information” below.


We, and our third-party partners, automatically collect certain types of usage information when you access or use the DevInsight Services, read our emails, or otherwise engage with us. We typically collect this information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, Flash objects, web beacons, file information and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”). For example, we collect information about your device and its software, such as your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, platform type, device type, operating system, date and time stamp, a unique ID that allows us to uniquely identify your browser, mobile device or your account, and other such information. We also collect information about the way you use the DevInsight Services, for example, the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave our website, the pages you visit, the links you click, how frequently you access the DevInsight Services, whether you open emails or click the links contained in emails, whether you access the DevInsight Services from multiple devices, and other actions you take on the DevInsight Services. We may collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the DevInsight Services and to understand more about the demographics of our users. We may also work with third party partners to employ technologies, including the application of statistical modeling tools, which attempt to recognize you across multiple devices. Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our users, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track signals set by your browser at this time.

We use or may use the data collected through tracking technologies to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the DevInsight Services; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information, including targeted content and advertising; (c) identify you across multiple devices; (d) provide and monitor the effectiveness of the DevInsight Services; (e) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns on the DevInsight Services; (f) diagnose or fix technology problems; and (g) otherwise to plan for and enhance the DevInsight Services.
