Privacy Policy

We at Peakware.com respect the privacy of anyone who visits this website. The current page describes any information we—or our third party vendors—collect during your visit, how that information will be used, and how you can control it.

What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website?

We collect no personal information about you unless you create an account. If you create an account, we ask for your first and last name, email address, and location (city, state/province, and country).

Both (c) and (d) are optional, and can be changed via the settings menu.

The information that comprises your location is collected (a) so we have a better sense of who our users are and where they're coming from, and (b) so users can search for other users who live in their same country, state/province, or city. Users can search for other users via the People on Peakware page. All of the information we collect related to your locaation is optional, and can be changed via the settings menu.

We collect additional information about your preferences, all via the settings menu. All of the data we collect is used solely to customize and improve your experience on Peakware.com.
