Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 10th, 2023

Your privacy is critically important to us. At PluginBits 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 on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our plugins/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 us.

Website Visitors

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

PluginBits also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. PluginBits 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 blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to PluginBits’s websites choose to interact with PluginBits in ways that require PluginBits to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PluginBits gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

We gather information about our users in the following ways:

  • When signing up for our service we ask for name and billing contact information.
  • Our sites employ analytics software including Google Analytics, Clicky.

We sell our product(s) using Freemius secure checkout, which enables secure online payments, licensing, fulfillment, and more. The service automatically adds cookies when a user opens the checkout. Those are essential cookies for security, fraud detection & prevention, and completion of a purchase. There’s no way to check out without letting the service use cookies.

Here’s a link to the Freemius privacy policy and its checkout cookie policy. If you wish to opt-out of Freemius’ cookies setting please go to their cookie policy and follow their opt-out instructions.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. PluginBits uses cookies to help PluginBits identify and track visitors, their usage of PluginBits website, and their website access preferences. PluginBits visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using PluginBits’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of PluginBits’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If PluginBits, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that PluginBits goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of PluginBits may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, PluginBits may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in PluginBits’s sole discretion. PluginBits encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a account, you should also check your blog’s dashboard for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
