Since we provide many different Services, some of them may have additional terms of use and restrictions, including those related to the age of the user. Such terms are given in the relevant Services and, in the case of the latter, are part of your agreement with CodeBits.

These Terms do not grant you any rights to use any branding elements or logos of our Services. You must not remove, hide or modify the legal notices displayed on the Services pages.

The Services may be represented by content created and / or uploaded by third parties. The latter bear full responsibility for it. Sometimes we check the content for compliance with the law and our rules. In case of serious violations we can remove or block it. However, this does not mean that we necessarily check all the materials.

If you use our Services, we can send you notifications, messages from the administrator and other information materials. In some cases, you can refuse to receive them, if necessary.

Some of our services can be used on mobile devices. However, if you are driving, this can distract you and lead to a violation of traffic rules, so be careful.

Your CodeBits account

Some services require a CodeBits account. You can create it yourself, or in some cases you will be provided by an administrator, for example, an employer or an authorized employee of an educational institution. If you received a CodeBits account from an administrator, it has the right to view or block your account, and you may be subject to other or additional conditions.

You are responsible for all the actions that are performed in our services with your CodeBits account, as well as in yourself.

Technologies and principles

CodeBits implements many ideas and products that extend the limits of existing technologies. As a responsible company, we strive to strike a balance between innovation and the appropriate level of confidentiality and safety of our users. The principles of confidentiality are taken into account when making decisions at each level of the company, which allows us to ensure the safety of users and help them, while fulfilling our ongoing mission to organize information on a global scale.

Principles of confidentiality

Use of information to improve the quality of products and services.

The user in the center of attention is the first of the principles of CodeBits. Using personal information allows us to create products and services that meet the needs of a variety of people. In addition, this approach requires the development of new information security systems. As a result, we offer our audience innovative, convenient and safe products.

Develop products in accordance with strict standards of confidentiality.

CodeBits is committed to creating technologies that are ahead of their time. This applies, inter alia, to privacy protection tools that enable easy and accessible management of personal data. When creating our products, we fully take into account the requirements of legislation in the field of information security. In addition, we cooperate with regulatory organizations and IT companies, participating in the development and implementation of the latest standards for the security of user data.

Transparent collection of personal information

We provide all the necessary instructions for configuring our services. We also strive to inform our clients about what information we have about them and how it is used.

Choice of means of protection of confidentiality

The requirements for confidentiality are different for all people. To meet the needs of users, CodeBits aims to offer them a range of options for working with their personal information. We believe that it should not be a dead weight, and we want to create products that allow users to export their personal data to other services. We do not sell personal data of users.

Responsible management of the information received.

We very much appreciate the trust placed in us. Protection of personal data is one of our most important tasks, and we are fully aware of the responsibility entrusted to us. CodeBits collaborates with users, developers and experts in the field of information security to make the Internet safer and more reliable.

How CodeBits use cookies

A cookie is a small piece of text that is sent to the browser from the site you visited. It helps the site to remember information about you, for example, in which language you prefer to view it. This will be useful the next time you visit the same site. Thanks to cookies, browsing sites becomes much more convenient.

Cookies are used for a variety of purposes. For example, they allow you to save settings for advertising preferences and search, to select users interests and count the number of visits to the page. They are also required when registering with CodeBits services and ensuring the security of personal data.

Location data types used by CodeBits

The CodeBits services use different types of data about the location of the user.

Implicit location information does not tell you the exact location of the device, but suggests that you are in a location or are interested in it.

Information about Internet traffic , such as an IP address, is usually associated with the country as a whole and allows you to determine the language and regional settings in the search. This information is always transmitted when you use the Internet.

Some functions, such as navigation in the CodeBits service or its mobile service providers, require accurate location information. In this case, services are used that, based on GPS signals, device sensor readings, data from Wi-Fi access points and cell tower identifiers, determine where you are. You can enable and disable the transfer of such geodata, and in some applications and devices, advanced settings are available. For example, sometimes you can choose whether to save locations in the history of the service or your account.

How CodeBits uses credit card information

To process payments made using CodeBits services, including purchases in stores and services of our company, we save your entered credit and debit card data. It also allows you to identify fraudulent activities. The Privacy Notice for these services describes how the system collects and uses account information. We disclose your data to third parties only under the conditions described in this document. The services listed in your account that use your credit and debit card details are stored in encrypted form on secure servers.
