When accessing our Website, DNSimple will learn certain information about you during your visit. How we will handle information we learn about you depends upon what you do when visiting our site.
If you visit our site to read or download information on our pages, we collect and store only the following information about you:
1. The name of the domain from which you access the Internet
2. The date and time you access our site
3. The Internet address of the website you used to link directly to our site.
If you identify yourself by sending us an e-mail containing personal information, then the information collected will be solely used to respond to your message.
DNSimple may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.
We use Google Analytics for tracking visitor and customer activity on our site. Per Google's policies, we do not send Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to Google Analytics. We may send information about the types of products purchased and the invoiced amounts for those products, however we do not include details about the purchased products (such as domain names).
For site security purposes, and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, DNSimple uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
We use third-party services for fraud detection. We may securely share with such services certain Personally Identifiable Information (PII) about transactions including email addresses, domain names, and any additional information that may help us identify fraudulent transactions.
DNSimple will not obtain personally identifying information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties without your approval at the time of collection, unless doing so is necessary to provide the services you are requesting.
Domain front-running is the practice whereby a service uses insider information to register domains for the purpose of re-selling them or earning revenue via ads placed on the domain's landing page.
We guarantee that DNSimple will never engage in domain front-running. Look-up data is never shared with any third parties and we will never register a domain name based on look-up queries.
