Privacy is paramount to us. We protect and respect your privacy. We only use your data to provide you good service. We do not sell your personal data to other companies or use it for the purpose of advertisements
What data we collect
We collect personal and non-personal data. Personal data include your name, email-address, newsletter preferences and location. These data are collected directly from you during the registration process.
Upon accessing CountryRisk.io, your browser transmits certain data. This information is saved in log files and includes: used operating system, information about your web browser, referrer-URL (URL of your previously visited web page), hostname/IP-address and date and time of your access.
How we collect data
Functional cookies enable you to navigate our webpage and application and allow us to remember your preferences. This information is not used for any other purposes.
Performance cookies from Google Analytics help us to understand your interests and to improve our webpage and application. We aggregate and analyse this information for statistical purposes (e.g. average time spent on sub-pages).
Where we store your data
We store data on a server that is located in Frankfurt, Germany. The server is hosted by Robhost GmbH; all details including certifications and compliance regulations of the data centre can be found here (available in German only).
What we do with your data
We do not, and will not, sell, rent, publish or share your data to any third party. Your data stays with us. The only exception is if we are forced by law to provide information to authorities. We use any collected data solely for internal use to improve our service and product. We aggregate data from all users and calculate statistics (e.g. number of ratings completed over a certain time period or average number of ratings completed per registered user).
CountryRisk.io is a community driven platform
The CountryRisk.io community is a key element of the platform. And with CountryRisk.io's quest to be open and transparent, all rating analysis made by registered users on the platform will be visible to other users. This includes the rating analysis, uploaded datasets, comments and ratings. The only exception relates to users who have opted for the premium package, which keeps activities (e.g. rating analysis, datasets) private or allows it to share only with a designated group in CountryRisk.io.
We use Google analytics on the public CountryRisk.io page and within the application to learn more about visitors in our page. This information helps us to improve our page and how to best present CountryRisk.io to you. Here is a standard text that explains Google Analytics:
