ReconBob Privacy Policy


Welcome to ReconBob.

We take the protection and proper use of your personal information seriously and are committed to protecting your personal information in our possession.  While ReconBob obtains various types of information from supported online marketplaces while its users shop at those marketplaces, ReconBob takes its users' privacy seriously and will NOT sell ANY of your personally identifiable data. 

ReconBob is designed to provide you with information about sellers at supported ecommerce marketplaces through the collection, analysis, and distribution of information about sellers through the experiences of other users.  It is designed to offer these benefits through without reference to or reliance upon any personally identifiable information.  We believe the benefits ReconBob provides its users are worth the sharing of shopping habits, in a non-personally identifiable way.  If a user believes the benefits are not worthwhile, please opt out by uninstalling the ReconBob browser extension.

In order to preserve your trust, we want you to understand what information we may collect from you, how we use such information, and the choices you have regarding our use of this information.  This Privacy Policy explains how ReconBob and some of the companies we work with collect, use, share and protect information in relation to ReconBob products, software, or services provided to you on, from, or through the ReconBob browser extension (collectively, the "Service").  Our Policy applies to all users and others who access the Service ("Users").


What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you install the ReconBob browser extension and when you use the browser on any online ecommerce channel. 

ReconBob collects the following types of information:

- Analytics information: We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends for the Service. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Service, including the installation of the ReconBob browser extension and information from the ecommerce web pages you visit. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other Users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual User.

- Cookies and similar technologies: When you use the Service, we may use cookies and similar technologies like pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how you use ReconBob and provide features to you.  We may ask advertisers or other partners to serve ads or services to your devices, which may use cookies or similar technologies placed by us or the third party.

- Log file information:  Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you make a request to access (i.e., visit) a web page or app. It can also be provided when the content of the webpage or app is downloaded to your browser or device.  When you use our Service, our servers automatically record certain log file information, including your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the webpage, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. The information allows for ReconBob to provide you the features of the Service and for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Service.

- Device identifiers:  When you use a mobile device like a tablet or phone to access our Service, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more "device identifiers." Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your mobile device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device's operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by ReconBob.  A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Service and may help us or others provide reports or personalized content and ads. Some features of the Service may not function properly if use or availability of device identifiers is impaired or disabled.


What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:


How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of the information collected from the Service.

Do we use cookies?

Yes (Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information). We may use cookies to keep track of advertisements and compile aggregate data about Service traffic and website interactions so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our Users. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information without your consent, except as noted in this Privacy Policy.

We may share your information (including but not limited to, information from cookies, log files, device identifiers, and usage data) with businesses that are legally part of the same group of companies that ReconBob is part of, or that become part of that group ("Affiliates"). Affiliates may use this information to help provide, understand, and improve the Service (including by providing analytics) and Affiliates' own services (including by providing you with better and more relevant experiences).

We also may share your information as well as information from tools like cookies, log files, and device identifiers, with third-party organizations that help us provide the Service to you ("Service Providers"). Our Service Providers will be given access to your information as is reasonably necessary to provide the Service under reasonable confidentiality terms.

We may also share certain information such as cookie data with third-party advertising partners. This information would allow third-party ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.

We may remove parts of data that can identify you and share anonymized data with other parties. We may also combine your information with other information in a way that it is no longer associated with you and share that aggregated information.


Third party links

We are not responsible for the practices employed by any websites or services linked to or from our Service, including the information or content contained within them. Please remember that when you use a link to go from our Service to another website or service, our Privacy Policy does not apply to those third-party websites or services. Your browsing and interaction on any third-party website or service, including those that have a link on our website, are subject to that third party's own rules and policies. In addition, you agree that we are not responsible and do not have control over any third-parties that you authorize to access your Content. If you are using a third-party website or service and you allow them to access your Content, you do so at your own risk.


What Happens in the Event of a Change of Control:

If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of ReconBob or our assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, liquidation), your information collected through the Service may be among the items sold or transferred. The buyer or transferee will have to honor the commitments we have made in this Privacy Policy.
