Thank you for using Ironforge. We are committed to protecting your privacy and have adopted this Privacy Policy to explain our data collection, use, and disclosure practices for the Ironforge services (collectively, the "Services"). The Services are owned and operated by Ironforge, Inc. ("Ironforge", "we", "us" or "our").

European Economic Area and Switzerland Residents

To the extent that there is a conflict between this Privacy Policy and the Privacy Notice for European Residents, the Privacy Notice for European Residents will prevail with respect to European Residents (as defined below) only.


This Privacy Policy applies to information Ironforge collects through the Services, as well as other information provided to us online or offline by third parties, when we associate that information with customers or users of the Services. However, it does not apply to information collected from our employees, contractors, or vendors. It also does not apply to information that you ask us to share with third parties or that is collected by certain other third parties whose software or services are featured or included in the Services (as further described below).


This Privacy Policy describes, among other things:

  1. Personal and other information we collect about you;
  2. How we use your information;
  3. How we may share your information with third parties; and
  4. Your choices regarding the personal information we collect about you.

By accessing or using the Services, you consent to this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not access or use the Services. Information gathered through the Services may be transferred, used, and stored in the United States or in other countries where our service providers or we are located. If you use the Services, you agree to the transfer, use, and storage of your Personal Information (as defined below) in those countries. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. You agree that all transactions relating to the Services or Ironforge are deemed to occur in the United States, where our servers are located.

Collection of Your Personal and Other Information

When you register for or use our Services, we collect Personal Information. By "Personal Information" we mean information that can identify or reasonably be linked to an individual, such as:

  • Names;
  • Email addresses;
  • Street addresses;
  • Phone numbers;
  • IP addresses, device IDs, and similar unique identifiers;
  • Location data;
  • Credit card information (which you submit for payment purposes); and
  • Information contained in any image, photograph or profile you submit to us.

Our Services may integrate with certain third-party services for purposes of authentication, including Bitbucket, Github, Gitlab, and Google. When you authenticate using such a third-party, we may collect certain information as described in the connection process. You acknowledge and agree that Ironforge is not responsible for the data collection or use practices of any such third-party service. You should read each such third-party service's privacy policy before using it for authentication purposes.

We also collect user experience video recording, which includes a graphical representation of your interactions with the Services, including session times, inactivity, user screens, mouse movements, page scrolling, and information you type (which may include Personal Information). We use these recordings to help us understand how users interact with our Services and to design a better user experience for you. By accessing or using the Services, you consent to the collection and processing of such user experience information.

You may choose not to provide Personal Information (subject to the controls offered by your mobile device's operating system), but this may prevent you from receiving certain features of the Services.

We also collect non-Personal Information relating to the Services, that is, information that does not personally identify an individual. The non-Personal Information we collect includes how you interact with the Services, information generally collected or "logged" by Internet websites or Internet services when accessed or used by users, and information about your web browser or device accessing or using the Services.

Examples of the non-Personal Information we collect are:

  • The pages of our website that you viewed during a visit;
  • What information, content or advertisements you view or interact with using the Services;
  • Language preferences;
  • The city and state in which you are located (but not your precise geographic location); and
  • Unique identifiers that are not connected and cannot reasonably be connected to your identity.

We will not use non-Personal Information to try to identify you, and if we associate any non-Personal Information with information that personally identifies you, then we will treat it as Personal Information. As discussed in more detail below, we sometimes use cookies and other automatic information gathering technologies to gather Personal Information and non-Personal Information. Information collected by the Services may be collected by us or one of the third parties we utilize in providing the Services (as further described below).

Use of Your Information

We may use the information we collect to:

  • Assist us in providing, maintaining, and protecting the Services;
  • Set up, maintain, and protect accounts to use the Services;
  • Improve our online operations;
  • Process transactions;
  • Provide customer service;
  • Communicate with you, such as provide you with account- or transaction-related communications, or other newsletters, RSS feeds, and/or other communications relating to the Services;

Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties as described below.

We may disclose Personal Information to provide the Services, or when you authorize or instruct us to do so, for example, when you use the Services to submit content or profile information. We may also disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to Service Providers. By "Service Providers" we mean companies, agents, contractors, service providers, or others engaged to perform functions on our behalf (such as processing of payments, provision of data storage, hosting of our website, marketing of our products and services, and conducting audits). When we use a Service Provider, we require that the Service Provider use and disclose the Personal Information received from us only to provide their services to us or as required by applicable law.

We may also disclose Personal Information and non-Personal Information to Online Tool Providers. By "Online Tool Provider" we mean a licensor of software that we include in, or use with, the Services, including an API or SDK, that provides a specialized function or service to us and that requires the transmission of Personal Information and/or non-Personal Information to the Online Tool Provider. Online Tool Providers may have the right to use Personal Information and non-Personal Information about you for their own business purposes. Use and disclosure of Personal Information and non-Personal Information by an Online Tool Provider is described in its privacy policy. See Section 5 below for some of the key Online Tool Providers we use.
