Collection

Is it clear why the service collects the personal data that it does? Yes

10/10

Decided May 18, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This question deals with transparency. Even if the service uses data for reasons that aren't ideal for privacy, provided they list all of those uses, the service can still receive full credit for this question. However, if they are not explicit about their uses (by employing language like "such as"), a lower score is assigned.

The information you provide when registering a domain name (or correcting or updating registration information) is required to allow the Internet to associate the domain name with your computer, to allow us to properly handle your account (including notifying you at renewal time), and to permit others operating or using the Internet to easily contact you to resolve issues that arise in connection with the domain name. It will also be stored under a data escrow program to keep the domain name operating in the event we leave the domain name registration business. When you submit a question to our site, contact information is needed so that we can respond.

Does the service allow third-party access to private personal data? Yes, not all parties specified

0/10

Decided May 18, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

The policy allows sharing personal data with third-parties (not just critical service providers), and does not explicitly list the third-parties.

This may come in the form of outright data sharing or by using local third-party analytics software (such as Google Analytics, which collects a plethora of user information).

Note that whether the policy allows sharing aggregated user data does not affect this question.

If the personal data is encrypted when it passes through the third-party, it does not count as third-party access (as the data is inaccessible to that party).

If personal data has been made public by, for example, posting it to a blog, it does not count as private personal information (and is therefore not considered by this question).

Yes, we do share information; but only as previously mentioned above and described below. Otherwise we will not provide your personal information without your consent.

WHOIS: We are required by ICANN to collect information about you during the domain name registration process. This information is then required by ICANN to be made available to the public via an interactive web page and a "port 43" WHOIS service. Please note that we are not able to control how members of the public use the WHOIS information.

Advertisers: We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.

Partners: We may partner with other parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we may share names or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.

Agents: We may engage other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include processing credit card payments, providing marketing assistance, providing customer services, sending postal mail and email to you, removing repetitive information from customer lists, and analyzing data. These persons have access to personal information needed to perform their functions. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information that you provide to Sav.com for any secondary purposes.

Service Providers: We may engage other companies and individuals to perform enhanced services on our behalf. Our service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Business Transfer: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or their assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if Sav.com, or all or substantially all of its assets, were ever to be acquired, customer information will most likely be one of the transferred assets.

Compliance: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with law; enforce or apply our agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Sav.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
