DataHack Privacy Policy

1. General Information

This policy sets out our privacy practices and explains how we handle the information we collect when you visit and use our website ( and our registration system (our “Services”).


2. What We May Collect

We may collect information about what DataHack pages you access, information about your device (such as browser type), and information you input on the site (such as your email address during the account creation process).


When you use DataHack Services, we may collect and store your Internet Protocol address. We may use this information to fight spam and other abuse or to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use DataHack Services.


3. Email from DataHack

Sometimes we’ll send administrative emails about account or service changes or new policies. You can’t opt out of these emails.


We won’t email you to ask for your password or other account information. If you receive such an email, send it to us so we can investigate.


4. Disclosure of Your Information

As a rule, we don’t share your personal information outside DataHack.


We won’t sell your personal information.


We may share your personal information with third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) to event sponsors for recruitment purposes with your consent; (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process.


If we’re going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you advance notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited from doing so by law or court order. We will object to requests for information about users of our site that we believe to be improper.


5. Cookies

We use cookies and similar technologies such as local storage to recognize you when you return to our Services. We use them in various ways, for example to log you in and remember your preferences.


We respect Do Not Track (“DNT”) settings in browsers. If you’re logged out of our Services and have DNT enabled, we will not set cookies. By logging in you are opting to allow DataHack to ignore the DNT setting and to use cookies in order to provide you a personalized experience.


Some third-party services that we use may place their own cookies in your browser. This Privacy Policy covers use of cookies by DataHack only and not the use of cookies by third parties.


6. Data Storage

DataHack uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run DataHack Services. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs.


7. Data Security

We use encryption (HTTPS/TLS) to protect data transmitted to and from our site. However, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure, so we can’t guarantee security. You use the Service at your own risk, and you’re responsible for taking reasonable measures to secure your account (like using a strong password).


8. Changes to This Policy

We may periodically update this policy. We’ll notify you about significant changes to it.
