  1. Retention of Personal Information:

CPHLR saves collected information in the database. Passwords are encrypted using sha512, so only the encrypted sha512 code from the password is saved. CPHLR also saves a token in a session cookie. The token is a code generated after authorization. This session cookie is for the browser to remember if a user is logged in, and it expires in 30 minutes.

  1. Third Parties and Data Collection:

CPHLR uses Google Analytics, Stripe, and Loggly, all of which are third-party sites that may use and store your information.

CPHLR uses Google Analytics to measure and report user statistics. Google collects first-party cookies, data related to the device/browser, IP address and on-site/app activities. CPHLR does not save any user information or customized data other than that collected by Google’s default settings. For more information on the information collected by Google Analytics, click here. CPHLR has no control over and assumes no responsibility for how Google uses and processes user data, but users can disable Google Analytics from using their information here.

CPHLR may use Stripe to process and manage payments for subscriptions. Stripe receives all transaction information. The information they collect may include payment method information, such as credit or debit card numbers and bank account information; the transaction amount; and the transaction date. For more information on what Stripe may be collecting and how it uses the data, view its Privacy Policy under the section "Personal Data We Collect."

CPHLR uses Loggly to monitor activity and analyze trends on the Service. Loggly sends users browser error to a Loggly-hosted portal so CPHLR can log in to check what kind of errors we have from the user-side so we can fix the errors.

  1. Third Party Links:

Our Service includes links to other websites, whose privacy policies might be different than that of CPHLR. If you submit any personal information to any of those websites, your information will be governed by their privacy policies.
