Your Web browser automatically sends information to every website you visit, including ours.

Ipregistry offers an API available to its customers via api.ipregistry.co. Where a Ipregistry customer uses the API, Ipregistry collects IP addresses and other information (e.g. HTTP headers, User-Agent) provided via api.ipregistry.co on behalf of the customer, and logs such information only for the purposes of monitoring, alerting, and internal reporting for the specific customer for up to 30 days.

As stated above, Ipregistry uses information such as your first and last name, telephone number, email address, postal address, billing information, or other contact information we obtain from you, our customers, or our business partners, for the purposes of providing, enhancing, or improving our IP geolocation, fraud detection, demographic targeting, databases, and other services and products.
Ipregistry maintains one or more contact lists (with email addresses and other information) to allow Ipregistry to communicate with individuals who do business with Ipregistry or who have expressed an interest in the Services.

Ipregistry uses the information we collect about you for a variety of website administration and customization purposes.

Some of our lawful bases for processing your information stem from our customers on whose behalf we provide services.
Ipregistry uses information that does not identify you for any purpose except as prohibited by applicable law. For information on your rights and choices regarding how we use your information, please see Section 6 below.
We provide your information to our service providers, contractors, business partners, and advertisers, for the purpose of delivering services to you as well as for purposes related to Services administration and operation, including conducting analytics. When sharing information for the purpose of providing you with the services you request, we will share your information only as necessary for the service provider working on Ipregistry's behalf to complete its work for us. For example, if you use a credit or debit card to complete a transaction on the Services, we will share your credit or debit card number with a payment processing and/or a fulfillment company in order to complete your transaction.
One aspect of Ipregistry's products and services is the provision of databases to our customers and other third parties, including our business partners and resellers. These databases include information such as IP addresses and corresponding data pertaining to such IP addresses, such as geolocation data, fraud analysis data, and related information. Such databases are compiled using numerous data sources, including information we receive from our customers when individuals make purchases or conduct other transactions with our customers. In addition, we respond to API queries from our customers.
We share your information with our customers in connection with us processing your information on their behalf. For example, we share your information with our customers to provide them with our products and services, respond to your questions and comments, fulfill your requests, and otherwise comply with applicable law.
We may share your information with vendors and other parties for purposes of providing you with tailored advertisements (e.g. ads on our blog), measuring and improving our Service and advertising effectiveness, and enabling other enhancements. Vendors may act as our service providers, or in certain contexts, independently decide how to process your information.
We reserve the right to disclose your information to appropriate third parties if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary in order (a) to comply with a legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (b) to protect the company's rights and property; (c) to investigate reports of users sending material using a false email address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages; (d) to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Website or Services; or (e) to respond to emergencies, such as when we believe someone's physical safety is at risk. Ipregistry may be required to disclose information in a life-threatening emergency or in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We may share your information for any other purpose disclosed to you and with your consent.
Without limiting the foregoing, in our sole discretion, Ipregistry shares information that does not identify you with third parties, including our customers, for any purpose except as prohibited by applicable law. For information on your rights and choices regarding how we share your information, please see Section 6 below.
Ipregistry does not control the information collection, use, or sharing practices of such parties, and we encourage you to consult their online policies. Some other parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use the Services.

Some of the advertisers and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us and our partners may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about the DAA and how you can exercise certain choices regarding interest-based advertising, visit https://www.aboutads.info/choices. Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI"). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of interest-based advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain interest-based advertising to you, but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). Ipregistry is not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties' opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to websites and online services you visit; however, there is no consensus among industry participants as to what "Do Not Track" means in this context. Like many websites and online services, unless and until the law is interpreted to require us to do so, the Website does not alter its practices when it receives a "Do Not Track" signal from a visitor's browser. To find out more about "Do Not Track," you may wish to visit https://www.allaboutdnt.com.
While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect your information against unauthorized access or alteration, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as keeping software up-to-date, restricting access to internal services and using state-of-the-art authentication and encryption methods. However, no physical or electronic security system is impenetrable. Ipregistry cannot guarantee the security of the Service's servers or databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
The Services are not intended for use by children under the age of thirteen years old. Ipregistry does not knowingly collect information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are a parent or guardian, and believe we have collected information about your child in violation of this policy, please contact us at the address set forth in Section 11 below. We do not knowingly "sell" as defined by the CCPA the personal information of minors under 16 years old who are California residents without their affirmative authorization.
