Privacy Policy

Effective date: March 03, 2019

Ivica Letunic ("us", "we", or "our") operates the website (the "Service").

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.

We use your data to provide and improve the Service. By using the Service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible from

Information Collection And Use

We do not collect any personally identifiable information information for any purposes.

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data

While using our Service, we do not ask you to provide any personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Data"). However, if you send me an email, I guess I'll receive some Personally identifiable information which may include, but is not limited to:

  • Email address
  • Your name

Usage Data

We do not care how the Service is accessed and used ("Usage Data"), so we do not collect any Usage data.

Tracking & Cookies Data

We do not use cookies and similar tracking technologies to track the activity on our Service and hold certain information.

Cookies are files with small amount of data which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a website and stored on your device. Most websites use tracking technologies such as beacons, tags, and scripts to collect and track information and to improve and analyze their Service. I do not care about any of that, it just slows down user's browsers and has some useless marketing person creating silly graphs on their "click-through-rates" or some other buzzword of the day.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, I do not send any cookies, so that would be quite useless with this particular web site.

Examples of Cookies we do not use:

  • Session Cookies. We do not use Session Cookies to operate our Service.
  • Preference Cookies. We do not use Preference Cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.
  • Security Cookies. We do not use Security Cookies for security purposes.

Use of Data

iTOL annotation editor does not collect any data, which therefore cannot be used for various purposes that most other web sites do:

  • To provide and maintain their Service
  • To notify you about changes to their Service
  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of their Service when you choose to do so
  • To provide customer care and support
  • To provide analysis or valuable information so that they can improve their Service
  • To monitor the usage of their Service
  • To detect, prevent and address technical issues

Transfer Of Data

Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside Germany and choose to provide information to us (i.e. send me an email), please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to Germany and process it there.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

I will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Data will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other personal information.

Disclosure Of Data

Legal Requirements

I may disclose your Personal Data (i.e. the email you sent) in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:

  • To comply with a legal obligation
  • To protect and defend the rights or property of iTOL annotation editor
  • To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service
  • To protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public
  • To protect against legal liability

Security Of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Service Providers

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service ("Service Providers"), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

Links To Other Sites

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 18 ("Children").

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.

We will let you know via email and/or a prominent notice on our Service, prior to the change becoming effective and update the "effective date" at the top of this Privacy Policy.

You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
