Patchstack

This notice applies to https://patchstack.com/ (“Site”) owned and operated by WebARX OÜ (Company Registration Number 14331217) located in the Republic of Estonia. The policy specifically explains how we, our partners and users of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them. For further information on how we use, store and keep your personal data secure, see our Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).

How we use cookies?

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience, and some allow the display of advertising from selected third-party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action.

Our Site uses cookies to identify you, so you don’t need to log in each time you visit our Site. The cookies are linked to your customer identifier, which is associated with the information in your account. Within our Site, we and our partners, affiliates, and/or analytics or service providers use technologies such as cookies, beacons, tags, and scripts to analyze trends, administer the Site, track visitors’ movements around the Site and to gather demographic information about our visitor base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual or aggregated basis.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and/or clickstream data. We use this information gathered about you from our Site to help personalize search results, diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Site. We also gather broad demographic information from this data to help us improve our Site and make your browsing and purchasing experience more enjoyable. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information, except as necessary to prevent fraud or abuse on our system.

We also use tracking technologies such as CI codes (click tracking), ISC (source tracking), and ITC (item tracking codes, attached to purchases at an item level, used to determine where within the application a product was added). We report this data back to our Patchstack web services. These results are not shared with any third parties and are used solely for deciding when to retire SDKs/OS versions and to identify characteristics of major visitors so that we may optimize our applications and services for those visitor types.

Cookies we use

Strictly Necessary/ Technical – these cookies are necessary to allow us to operate our Site so you may access it as you have requested. These cookies, for example, let us recognize that you have created an account and have logged into that account to access Site content. They also include cookies that enable us to remember your previous actions within the same browsing session and secure our Site.

Analytical/ Performance – these cookies are used by us or third-party service providers to analyze how the Site is used and how it is performing. For example, these cookies track what pages are most frequently visited, and from what locations our visitors come from. If you subscribe to a newsletter or otherwise register with the Site, these cookies may be correlated to you. These cookies include, for example, Google Analytics cookies.

Functionality – these cookies let us operate the Site in accordance with the choices you make. These cookies permit us to “remember” you in-between visits. For instance, we will recognize your username and remember how you customized the Site and services, for example by adjusting text size, fonts, languages and other parts of web pages that are alterable and provide you with the same customizations during future visits.

Third-Party Advertising – these cookies collect information about your activities on these and other sites to provide you targeted advertising. We may also allow our third-party service providers to use cookies on the Site for the same purposes identified above, including collecting information about your online activities over time and across different websites. The third-party service providers that generate these cookies, such as Google and Facebook, have their own privacy policies and may use their cookies to target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to our Site.

The data collected by the Site and/or through cookies that may be placed on your computer will not be kept for longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes mentioned above. In any event, such information will not be kept for longer than one year.
