Privacy Policy

EdgeSpot ("we", "us" and "our") highly respect your privacy. This Privacy Policy provides information about our privacy practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of your information. We hope you will take the time to read it carefully.

Information we may collect and why we collect when you use our service

The information we collect when you use our services can be divided into two types:

  • "Sample" or "Samples", this is the file(s) you upload for analyzing.
  • "Personal information", this include:
    • Details about your computers, devices, applications, and networks (including IP address, browser characteristics, device ID and characteristics, hardware model, operating system version, system language, and preferences).
    • Details about Internet or network usage (including URLs or domain names of websites you visit, referral URL, standard HTTP request headers, or traffic data).
    • Cookies and Local Storage: We use cookies and similar technologies to collect and store information when you visit the website, in order to remember user preferences and to maximize the performance of our website and services. We may also collect and store information using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML5) and application data caches.

We use the information we collect to provide, maintain, protect and improve our service, including using data to improve and personalize your experiences and conduct security research and trend analysis. For example, we need to store some personal information to help users who mistakenly upload samples and want to delete them later.

Information we may share with third-party

Our policy regarding sharing information with third-party is based on the types of information we collect.

  • For the Sample, as stated in our "Terms of Services", you grant EdgeSpot and its affiliates a worldwide, royalty free, irrevocable and transferable licence to modify, use, store, display, perform, reproduce, transmit, and distribute contents on the sample. We may use the samples for various research and testing efforts. Also, the Samples may be stored and shared with our partners and/or the security community, expecting to lead to a safer internet and better end-user protection.
  • NOTE: You should not upload files or any contents at if you do not have authority to or you do not want to share it.

  • For Personal information, we do NOT share your personal information with any third party except in the following circumstances:
    • With your consent
    • To enforce our terms and conditions, such as to protect our operations, rights, privacy, security, and safety
    • Required by law or to respond to legal process
