Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Slicknode, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • 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 ongoing operation of one of our services. In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team. Slicknode Inc. (“Slicknode”) operates several websites including It is Slicknode’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Slicknode 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. Slicknode’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Slicknode’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Slicknode may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Slicknode also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on services. Slicknode only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that service commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the service where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Slicknode’s websites choose to interact with Slicknode in ways that require Slicknode to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Slicknode gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an Account at to provide a username, name and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Slicknode – by purchasing a paid plan, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Slicknode collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Slicknode. Slicknode 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

Slicknode may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Slicknode may monitor the most popular services on the site or use the collected information to help detect and prevent abuse. Slicknode may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Slicknode does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Information We Collect from Other Sources

With your authorization, we may also obtain information about you from other sources. For example, if you create or log into your account through a social media service (like Google) or if you connect your website or account to a social media service, we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Slicknode 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 Slicknode’s behalf or to provide services available at Slicknode’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 Slicknode’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Slicknode 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, Slicknode discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Slicknode believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Slicknode, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Slicknode website and have supplied your email address, Slicknode 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 Slicknode 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. Slicknode takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
