Privacy Policy

This is a supplement of AVG Privacy Policy for AVG PrivacyFix and should be read in conjunction with the AVG Privacy Policy.

AVG PrivacyFix does not transmit browser data

AVG PrivacyFix is engineered not to transmit or share your browsing history or browser cookies. All of our ratings and calculations happen inside your browser, using generic formulas and data sent from our server.

AVG PrivacyFix only collects data necessary to serve you

When you install and use our browser extension or app, we identify your computer or device using a unique code that is stored by the extension or app. We use this unique code to save your AVG PrivacyFix selections, and to understand usage patterns that help us monitor and improve the service.

Your Facebook® data stays under your control

If you choose to connect to AVG PrivacyFix with your Facebook account, your Facebook ID is transmitted securely and used to make your experience consistent across your computer and mobile apps as well as other AVG Products. If you choose to have AVG PrivacyFix monitor your privacy on Facebook, we store and use only the information necessary to do so. If you later decide to revoke our access to your Facebook account, we promptly delete this information from servers.

We work hard to make AVG PrivacyFix really useful for you. Here’s what we need from you:

1. Play fair. Please ask for permission before you use or re-distribute any of the code or data that we’ve developed or curated. We’re very open to free licensing for non-commercial privacy applications (our data powers half-a-dozen open source projects). Contact us and we’re happy to collaborate for free. If you are developing commercial applications, you can buy access to our API, which we guarantee will be cheaper than curating the data yourself. We reserve our copyrights in our work, as well as our trademarks, including PrivacyFix, PrivacyChoice and Privacyscore.

2. Mistakes will be made. AVG PrivacyFix is free and offered “as is,” without warranties or guarantees of any kind. There may be errors in our services or in our assessment of your privacy status and settings. We cannot guarantee that this service will eliminate or control the collection, use or sharing of your online information. We don’t provide legal advice, and you shouldn’t rely on our service for legal matters.

3. No promises. Privacyfix is provided as is, without any representations or warranties, express or implied, including any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title and non-infringement. We will not be liable to you (whether under the law of contract, the law of torts or otherwise) in relation to this website for any direct, indirect, special or consequential loss; or for any business losses, loss of revenue, income, profits or anticipated savings, loss of contracts or business relationships, loss of reputation or goodwill, or loss or corruption of information or data.

4. These rules also apply. These terms and your use of the service are governed solely by California law. Any action relating to your use of this service may be instituted only in Santa Cruz County, California. Minors are not eligible to use the service and we ask that they do not submit any personal information to us. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone and to terminate access to our services at any time.
