Pixelscan follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and a part of hosting services' analytics. The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Like any other website, Pixelscan uses "cookies". These cookies are used to store information including visitors' preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users' experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors' browser type and/or other information. If you wish to opt-out from enhancements enabled by cookies technology, simply disable them in your browser.
Google is one of a third-party vendor on our site. We are using Google Ads occasionally to bring new users to our service. We also use Google Analytics as the only free (and therefore affordable to us) web analytics solution. If this concerns you, we recommend using Google Analytics Opt-out Add-on (by Google) extension as a way to opt-out from Google Analytics tracking and AdBlock — best ad blocker extension to opt-out from Google Ads trackers. Don’t forget to disable “Show acceptable ads” option in AdBlock settings. These two extensions won’t interfere with our tests.
No Honeypots Policy
Most publicly available IP, proxy, and browser fingerprint tests are, in fact, honeypots created by anti-fraud companies. We hate them as much as you do.
Will never sell your data to anti-fraud systems, period. This encompasses all our existing products and tools, likewise those that will be developed in the future.
Data We Store
We store store browser fingerprint information and IP addresses of our visitors. This is to analyze where they succeed or fail with our test and improve test quality.
We may also share these details in an anonymized way that does not include IP addresses with our partners. This is to indicate to them when their end-users are passing or failing our tests. This data is shared in a strictly anonymized way to avoid tracking specific users. Our partners are web bot and anti-detect browser developers interested in improving quality of their services. They have no vested interest in any kind of anti-fraud or anti-bot systems. All collaborations are strictly monitored.
Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.
Pixelscan does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
