Like most website operators, Akaunting.com 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. Akaunting.com's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Akaunting.com's visitors use its website. From time to time, Akaunting.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Akaunting.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Akaunting.com does not use IP addresses to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Certain visitors to Akaunting.com choose to interact with Akaunting.com in ways that require Akaunting.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Akaunting.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a name and email address.
In each case, Akaunting.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Akaunting.com. Akaunting.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities, like purchasing an app from the App Store.
All of the information that is collected on Akaunting.com will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
