Read the Firecamp Privacy and Policy
Your privacy is critically important to us. At Firecamp, we have a few fundamental principles:
- We try to collect as little personal information as possible.
- We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share your personal information.
- We are thoughtful about the personal information we ask you to provide and the personal information that we collect about you through the operation of our services.
- Our websites;
- Our applications (for example the Firecamp app);
- Our other products, services, and features that are available on or through our websites/application.
We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so — for example, to provide our Services, to communicate with you, or to make our Services better. We collect this information from three sources: if and when you provide information to us, automatically through operating our Services, and from outside sources. Let’s go over the information that we collect.
It’s probably no surprise that we collect information that you provide to us directly. Here are some examples:
- Basic account information: We ask for basic information from you in order to set up your account. For example, we require individuals who sign up for a Firecamp account to provide an email address and password (if no third-party login is used), along with a username or name — and that’s it.
- Business Profile: Some of our products collect additional information from you as part of creating a user/customer profile. we use the information you provide us like your timezone and location information, your company and team information, and your contact information, to set up your account and power the Service’s features.
- Communications with us: You may also provide us with information when you respond to surveys, communicate with us about a support question or post a question in our public forums. When you communicate with us via email, public forum comments, or otherwise, we may store a copy of our communications.
2.2 Use of Permissions for a chrome-extension
Firecamp chrome-extension needs a couple of permissions from users to enable certain features in Firecamp.These all necessary permissions are listed below
- activeTab : to set app icon, badges and it's text colors.
- allHost : to allow users to test their end-points in APIs/WS/GraphQL like testing GUI clients.
- identity : to let you sign-in/sign-up via Google directly from the extension.
- storage : to save offline data locally
2.3 Information We Collect Automatically
We also collect some information automatically:
- Log information: Like most online service providers, we collect information that web browsers typically make available, including the browser type, language preference, the date and time of access. We collect log information when you use our Services — for example when you create or make changes to your Firecamp account.
- Transactional information: When you make a purchase through our Services, we collect information about the transaction, such as product details, purchase price, and the date and location of the transaction.
- Telemetry data: We collect anonymized telemetry data in our Firecamp app. For more details, read our telemetry documentation.
2.4 Information We Collect from Other Sources
We may also get information about you from other sources. For example:
- Third Party Login: If you create or log in to your Firecamp account through another service (like GitHub) we’ll receive associated login information (e.g. a connection-token, your username, your email address) The information we receive depends on which services you use or authorize and what options are available.
3.1 Purposes for Using Information
We use information about you for the purposes listed below:
- To provide our Services. For example, to set up and maintain your account, provide customer service, process payments and orders, and verify user information.
- To ensure quality, maintain safety, and improve our Services. For example, by providing automatic upgrades and new versions of our Services. Or, for example, by monitoring and analyzing how users interact with our Services so we can create new features that we think our users will enjoy and that will help them create and manage websites more efficiently or make our Services easier to use.
- To protect our Services, our users, and the public. For example, by detecting security incidents; detecting and protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity; fighting spam; complying with our legal obligations; and protecting the rights and property of Firecamp and others, which may result in us, for example, declining a transaction or terminating Services.
- To fix problems with our Services. For example, by monitoring, debugging, repairing, and preventing issues.
- To communicate with you. For example, by emailing you to ask for your feedback, share tips for getting the most out of our products, or keep you up to date on Firecamp ; texting you to verify your payment; or calling you to share offers and promotions that we think will be of interest to you. If you don’t want to hear from us, you can opt out of marketing communications at any time. (If you opt out, we’ll still send you important updates relating to your account.)
We do not intentionally collect "Sensitive Personal Information", such as personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, and the processing of genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person's sex life or sexual orientation.
