What Information iCloudReady Collects and Why

Information from website visitors

Like most website operators, iCloudReady automatically collects i) technical information about your device, including your device's internet protocol (IP) address; and ii) information about your visit to our website (the referral URL, the content viewed, and the content interacted with). Some of this information is collected using cookies and related technologies. See below for further information on these technologies. We collect this information to better understand how visitors use our websites, to improve their experience, and to monitor the security of the website.

For logged-in users of iCloudReady platform, iCloudReady also collects this information on to help us understand how to make the deployments more useful for different categories of users.

Usage data information from iCloudReady instances

iCloudReady automatically collects information about usage from each iCloudReady instance, We use cookies and similar technologies to collect some of this information. It is possible to opt out of your personal information being transferred, we do not track your end users at all. iCloudReady tracks the usage of these instances at an aggregate level - it is also possible to prevent this by asking us.

Personal information

You may choose to interact with our website in ways that provide us with personal information. In some instances, a User ID is generated for form and URL tracking, page views, page pings, and usage counts in order to ascertain product performance and development. The amount and type of information that iCloudReady gathers depends on the nature of your interaction with us as well as the amount of information you choose to share. For example, we ask visitors who use our support Slack group to provide a username and email address. We will also collect the information you provide to us in connection with creating an account on the Website. Certain profile information (such as your username) may be shared publicly, as well as activity under your profile. If you report a security vulnerability to iCloudReady and request public acknowledgement, then we may publicly disclose the personal information you provided to us in connection with the report, including your name, to fulfill your request for acknowledgement. In each case, iCloudReady collects such personal information only insofar as it is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with or your request to iCloudReady. We also collect certain personal information during live, in-person events and demos. We will not disclose your personal information other than as described in this Privacy Policy.

We may aggregate all information (including your personal information) collected from our websites and self-managed installations for our own statistical and property management purposes and share such aggregated information with third parties for our own promotional purposes (e.g., by publishing a report on accounting for the usage of our website).

International transfer of personal information

The website is hosted in the United States, or in Germany or in Saudi Arabia if you are an iCloudReady Cloud customer who has selected EU or Saudi hosting, and the personal information we collect will be stored and processed on our servers in either the United States or Germany or Saudi. Our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that process information for us as described above may be located in the United States or in other countries outside of your home country, which may have different data protection standards than those that apply in your home country.

Where your personal information is transferred outside of the EEA, Switzerland, and UK, and where this is to a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission or considered adequate as determined by applicable data protection laws, we will take steps to ensure your personal information is adequately protected by safeguards such as Standard Contractual Clauses ("SCCs") approved by the EU Commission or by the UK Government. A copy of the relevant mechanism can be obtained for your review on request by using the contact details in the ‘Contacting iCloudReady About Your Privacy' section of this Privacy Policy.

iCloudReady communications with you

If you are a registered user of the website and have supplied your email address, iCloudReady may occasionally send you an email to tell you about security, system information, new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with iCloudReady and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. There's an unsubscribe link located at the bottom of each of the marketing emails we send you, so you can stop receiving such emails at any time.

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 your request in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We will not publish your personal information in connection with your request.

Cookies, tracking technologies and Do Not Track


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. iCloudReady uses cookies to help iCloudReady identify and track visitors, their usage of the website, and their website access preferences. iCloudReady visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers may set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the website. Disabling browser cookies may cause certain features of iCloudReady's website to not function properly.

Certain pages on the website may set other third party cookies. For example, we may embed content, such as videos, from another site that sets a cookie. These sites set their own cookies, and we do not have access to or control over these cookies. The use of cookies by third parties is not covered by our Privacy Policy.

Tracking technologies

We do not use third party tracking services to collect information about you.

Do Not Track

"Do Not Track" is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. iCloudReady does not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time, and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our site. Because we do not share this kind of data with third party services or permit this kind of third party data collection for any of our users, and we do not track our users on third-party websites ourselves, we do not need to respond differently to an individual browser's Do Not Track setting.

Global privacy practices and your rights

Information we collect may be stored and processed in the United States in accordance with this privacy policy, but we understand that users from other countries may have different expectations and rights with regard to their privacy. For all Website visitors and users, no matter their country of location, we will:

  • provide clear methods of unambiguous, informed consent when we do collect your personal information and where required by applicable law;
  • only collect the minimum amount of personal information necessary for the purpose it is collected for, unless you choose to provide us more;
  • offer you simple methods of accessing, correcting, or deleting your information that we have collected, with the exception of information you voluntarily provide that is necessary to retain as is for the integrity of our project code, as described further below; and
  • provide website users with notice, choice, accountability, security, and access, and we limit the purpose of processing. We also provide our users with a method of recourse and enforcement.

Where our affiliate within Egypt processes your personal information or where we process personal information of individuals located in the EEA or the UK, you are entitled to the following rights with regards to your personal information:

  • Right of access to your personal information, to know what information we hold about you.
  • Right to correct any incorrect or incomplete personal information about yourself that we hold.
  • Right to restrict/suspend our processing of your personal information.
  • Right to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe your privacy rights are being violated. In the UK, this will be the Information Commissioner.

Additional rights that may apply to you in certain instances:

  • Right of data portability (if our processing is based on consent or a contract and the processing carried out by automated means);
  • Right to withdraw consent at any time (if processing is based on consent). If you ask to withdraw your consent, this will not affect any processing that has already taken place at that time.
  • Right to object to processing (if processing is based on legitimate interests)
  • Right to object to processing of personal data for direct marketing purposes
  • Right of erasure of your personal data from our system ("right to be forgotten") if certain grounds are met

These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal information about another person, or if you ask us to delete information that we are required by law or have compelling legitimate interests to keep.

Where we collect personal information to administer your accounts, your contract with us, or to comply with our legal obligations, this is mandatory, and we will not be able to manage our relationship with you without it. In all other cases, the provision of requested personal information is optional, but this may affect your ability to participate in certain Website-related activities or be able to access and use certain features and services, where the information is needed for those purposes.

To exercise your privacy rights, you can email us at the address given below in the ‘Contacting iCloudReady About Your Privacy' section of this Privacy Policy.

Data portal and deletion

If you already have an account on the website, you may access, update, alter, or delete your basic user profile information by logging into your account and updating your profile settings.

iCloudReady will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to perform our contractual obligations, provide you services through the website, comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, preserve legal rights, or enforce our agreements. Portal periods will be determined taking into account the type of information that is collected and the purpose for which it is collected, bearing in mind the requirements applicable to the situation and the need to destroy outdated, unused information at the earliest reasonable opportunity. For instance, in respect of data held for the management of customers and potential customers, we consider the lead time necessary to develop and maintain our commercial relationships and how recent our interactions with you are. We may rectify, update, or remove incomplete or inaccurate information, at any time and at our own discretion. For more information on our portal periods, you can contact us using the details in the "Contacting iCloudReady About Your Privacy" section of this Privacy Policy.

Please note that due to the complete nature of our products, services, and support, we may retain limited personal information indefinitely in order to ensure transactional integrity and nonrepudiation. For example, if you provide your information in connection with a blog post, GitHub issue, or comment, we may display that information even if you have deleted your account, as we do not automatically delete support posts. Also, as described in our Terms of Use, if you contribute to an iCloudReady project and provide your personal information in connection with that contribution, that information (including your name) will be embedded and publicly displayed with your contribution, and we will not be able to delete or erase it because doing so would break the project code.
