Privacy Policy

Last revised on April 20, 2018

Your privacy is very important to us. At DeepScan we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

The Gist

DeepScan will collect certain non-personally identifiable information about you as you use our sites. We may use this data to better understand our users. We can also publish this data, but the data will be about a large group of users, not individuals. We may also collect certain personal information about you and your use of the Service (as defined herein) which may be published and used in the aggregate as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

We will also ask you to provide personal information, but you'll always be able to opt out. If you give us personal information, we won't do anything evil with it.

We can also use cookies, but you can choose not to store these.

That's the basic idea, but you must read through the entire Privacy Policy below and agree with all the details before you use any of our sites.


This document is based upon the Automattic Privacy Policy and is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License 2.5. Basically, this means you can use it verbatim or edited, but you must release new versions under the same license and you have to credit Automattic somewhere (like this!). Automattic is not connected with and does not sponsor or endorse DeepScan or its use of the work.

DeepScan makes available services include our web sites ( (the "Site")), our blog, our API, and any other software, sites, and services offered by DeepScan in connection to any of those (taken together, the "Service"). It is DeepScan's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our Site.


Like most website operators, DeepScan collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. DeepScan's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DeepScan's visitors use its website. From time to time, DeepScan may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

DeepScan also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DeepScan does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Additionally, as part of our normal analysis, DeepScan collects information with regards to GitHub repositories from those who login. This includes email address, source code (immediately deleted from our servers right after the analysis), pull requests and webhooks.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to DeepScan's websites choose to interact with DeepScan in ways that require DeepScan to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DeepScan gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. DeepScan collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with DeepScan. DeepScan does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

To understand our users, DeepScan may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. DeepScan may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, DeepScan does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

DeepScan discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on DeepScan’s behalf or to provide services available at DeepScan’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using DeepScan’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. DeepScan will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, DeepScan discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when DeepScan believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DeepScan, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a DeepScan website and have supplied your email address, DeepScan may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with DeepScan and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. DeepScan takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the Service each time the visitor returns. DeepScan uses cookies to help DeepScan identify and track visitors, their usage of DeepScan Service, and their Service access preferences. DeepScan visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using DeepScan's websites, with the drawback that certain features of DeepScan's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If DeepScan, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that DeepScan goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of DeepScan may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Data Storage

DeepScan may use third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Service. You understand that although you retain full rights to your data, it may be stored on third party storage and transmitted through third party networks.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, DeepScan may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in DeepScan's sole discretion. DeepScan encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
