Effective date: June 1, 2019
Thanks for entrusting TestResults.io with your projects and your personal information. Holding onto your private information is a serious responsibility, and we want you to know how we’re handling it.
The short version
We only collect the information you choose to give us, and we process it with your consent, or on another legal basis; we only require the minimum amount of personal information that is necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us; we don’t sell it to third parties; and we only use it as this Privacy Statement describes. If you’re visiting us from the EU, please see our global privacy practices: we are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). No matter where you are, where you live, or what your citizenship is, we provide the same standard of privacy protection to all our users around the world, regardless of their country of origin or location.
Of course, the short version doesn’t tell you everything, so please read on for more details!
What information TestResults.io collects and why
Information from website browsers
If you’re just browsing the website, we collect the same basic information that most websites collect. We use common internet technologies, such as cookies and web server logs. This is stuff we collect from everybody, whether they have an account or not.
The information we collect about all visitors to our website includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested, and the date and time of each visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
Why we collect this
We collect this information to better understand how our website visitors use GitBook, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.
Information from users with accounts
If you create an account, we require some basic information at the time of account creation. We will ask you for a valid email address and password.
“User Personal Information” is any information about one of our users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her. Information such as a user name and password, an email address, a real name, and a photograph are examples of “User Personal Information.” User Personal Information includes Personal Data as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation.
User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service.
Why we collect this
- We need your User Personal Information to create your account, and to provide the services you request, or to respond to support requests.
- We use your User Personal Information, specifically your user name, to identify you on TestResults.io.
- We will use your email address to communicate with you.
- We use your User Personal Information for internal purposes, such as to maintain logs for security reasons, for training purposes, and for legal documentation.
- We limit our use of your User Personal Information to the purposes listed in this Privacy Statement. If we need to use your User Personal Information for other purposes, we will ask your permission first. You can always see what information we have, how we’re using it, and what permissions you have given us in your user profile.
Our legal basis for processing information
Under certain international laws (including GDPR), TestResults.io is required to notify you about the legal basis on which we process User Personal Information. TestResults.io processes User Personal Information on the following legal bases:
- When you create a TestResults.io account, you provide your name and an email address. We require those data elements for you to enter into the Terms of Service agreement with us, and we process those elements on the basis of performing that contract. We also process your user name and email address on other bases. If you have a paid account with us, there will be other data elements we must collect and process on the basis of performing that contract. TestResults.io does not collect or process a credit card number, but our third-party payment processor does.
- When you fill out the information in your user profile, you have the option to provide User Personal Information. We process this information on the basis of consent. All of this information is entirely optional, and you have the ability to access, modify, and delete it at any time (while you are not able to delete your email address entirely, this information is private and not shared with other users).
- Generally, the remainder of the processing of personal information we perform is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests. For example, for security purposes, we must keep logs of IP addresses that access TestResults.io.
- If you would like to request erasure of data we process on the basis of consent or object to our processing of personal information, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
What information TestResults.io does not collect
We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information, such as social security numbers, genetic data, health information, or religious information. Although TestResults.io does not request or intentionally collect any sensitive personal information, we realize that you might store this kind of information in your account, such as in a space. If you store any sensitive personal information on our servers, you are responsible for complying with any regulatory controls regarding that data.
If you’re a child under the age of 13, you may not have an account on TestResults.io. TestResults.io does not knowingly collect information from or direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. If we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user who is under the age of 13, we will unfortunately have to close your account. We don’t want to discourage you from learning to code, but those are the rules. Please see our Terms of Service for information about account termination. Other countries may have different minimum age limits, and if you are below the minimum age for providing consent for data collection in your country, you may not use TestResults.io without obtaining your parents’ or legal guardians’ consent.
We do not intentionally collect User Personal Information that is stored in your spaces or other free-form content inputs. Information in your spaces belongs to you (and your organization), and you are responsible for it, as well as for making sure that your content complies with our Terms of Service. Any personal information within a user’s space is the responsibility of the organization owner.
TestResults.io employees do not access customer projects unless required to for security reasons, to assist the owner with a support matter, or to maintain the integrity of the service.
How we share the information we collect
We do share User Personal Information with your permission, so we can perform services you have requested or communicate on your behalf. Additionally, you may indicate, through your actions on TestResults.io, that you are willing to share your User Personal Information. For example, if you join an organization, the owner of the organization will have the ability to view your activity in the organization’s access log. We will respect your choices.
We do not share, sell, rent, or trade User Personal Information with third parties for their commercial purposes.
We do not host advertising on TestResults.io. We may occasionally embed content from third party sites, such as YouTube, and that content may include ads. While we try to minimize the amount of ads our embedded content contains, we can’t always control what third parties show. Any advertisements on individual TestResults.io Pages are not sponsored by, or tracked by, TestResults.io.
We do not disclose User Personal Information outside TestResults.io, except in the situations listed in this section or in the section below on Compelled Disclosure.
We do share certain aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how our users, collectively, use TestResults.io, or how our users respond to our other offerings, such as our conferences or events. However, we do not sell this information to advertisers or marketers.
We do share User Personal Information with a limited number of third party vendors who process it on our behalf to provide or improve our service, and who have agreed to privacy restrictions similar to our own Privacy Statement by signing data protection agreements. Our vendors perform services such as payment processing, customer support ticketing, network data transmission, and other similar services. When we transfer your data to our vendors, we remain responsible for it. While TestResults.io processes all User Personal Information in Switzerland, our third party vendors may process data inside the United States or the European Union.
We do share aggregated, non-personally identifying information with third parties.
We may share User Personal Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of User Personal Information, and we will notify you on our website or by email before any transfer of your User Personal Information. The organization receiving any User Personal Information will have to honor any promises we have made in our Privacy Statement or in our Terms of Service.
How you can access and control the information we collect
If you’re already a TestResults.io user, you may access, update, alter, or delete your basic user profile information by editing your user profile or contacting email@example.com. You can control the information we collect about you by limiting what information is in your profile, by updating out of date information, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Data retention and deletion
Generally, TestResults.io will retain User Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services.
We may retain certain User Personal Information indefinitely, unless you delete it or request its deletion. For example, we don’t automatically delete inactive user accounts, so unless you choose to delete your account, we will retain your account information indefinitely.
If you would like to cancel your account or delete your User Personal Information, you may do so in your user profile. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, but barring legal requirements, we will delete your full profile (within reason) within 90 days. You may contact email@example.com to request the erasure of the data we process on the basis of consent within 30 days.
We provide a web page on cookies and tracking that describes the cookies we set, the needs we have for those cookies, and the types of cookies they are (temporary or permanent). It also lists our third party analytics and service providers and details exactly which parts of our website we permit them to track.
Tracking and analytics
We use a number of third party analytics and service providers to help us evaluate our users’ use of TestResults.io; compile statistical reports on activity; and improve our content and website performance. We only use these third party analytics providers on certain areas of our website, and all of them have signed data protection agreements with us that limit the type of personal information they can collect and the purpose for which they can process the information. In addition, we use our own internal analytics software to provide features and improve our content and performance.
We do not currently respond to your browser’s Do Not Track signal, and we do not permit third parties other than our analytics and service providers to track TestResults.io users’ activity over time on TestResults.io. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time.
How TestResults.io secures your information
TestResults.io takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect User Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of User Personal Information.
TestResults.io enforces a written security information program. Our program:
- aligns with industry recognized frameworks;

Transmission of data on TestResults.io is encrypted using HTTPS, and SSL/TLS. Data are stored and encrypted by trusted third-party cloud providers (such as Microsoft Azure Cloud).
No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
