Codota ("Codota", "we", "our") is committed to maintaining the privacy of its users ("user", "you"). The following information describes how Codota collects and processes information about you when you use its website (the "Website") and Services (as defined below).
Codota, based at the heart of Tel-Aviv, helps developers build software smarter and faster. To do that Codota runs machine-learning algorithms over code and discovers practices that form the de-facto coding standards. Codota then formulates unwritten rules that serve developers as the ultimate source of coding insight ("Services"). Technically, Codota uses two kinds of models: (1) public models trained on reputable public source code with permissive licenses, and (2) private models trained on the user′s code. Private models never leave the user′s local machine, unless the user takes explicit action and asks to share them with team members.
Information from which you can be personally identified may also be collected, including but not limited to your email address and the location of the computer through which you used the Website and Services (hereinafter: "Personal Information"). Personal Information shall be collected only if received voluntarily by you, including, without limitation, when you download Codota′s plugin, use Codota′s Services via the following methods:

We may as well share your Personal Information with our affiliates, subsidiaries or any third party service providers and individuals to facilitate our Services or any portion thereof, such as marketing, data management or maintenance services. We use zendesk and customer.io for user communication and support which enables us to provide you with efficient technical support service.
We also share your information for analytics purposes with third parties who provide us with analytics services such as Google Analytics, Mixpanel and HotJar. These technologies enable the analytics providers to set or read their own cookies or other identifiers on your computer, through which they can collect information about your usage of Codota′s Services across applications, websites or other products. This helps us compile aggregated statistics about the effectiveness of our Website and Services.

Furthermore, information about you may also be released in order to comply with any valid legal obligation or inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if you use the Website or Services to perform an unlawful act or omission or take any act or omission that may damage Codota, its property and goodwill, or if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Website, Services or a physical or property threat to you or others.
