Privacy Policy

At Acceleron, we collect and manage user data according to the following Privacy Policy, with the goal of incorporating our company values: transparency, accessibility, sanity, usability. By using Acceleron.dev (the “Website” or the “Site”), you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy governs the manner in which Acceleron Corp. collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a “User”), such as yourself, of the Website. Please read this document in it’s entirety, and refer to those for definitions and contacts.

Some sentences and ideas in this document may be redundant, but be as they may, they may also cover a nuance we chose to make explicit mention of. We address the User in the first person ("you") in some places. While this interchangeability is not ideal, and while we believe that after thousands of years of evolution of language, this issue should not be rearing it's ugly head again, it is hereby made expressly unambiguous that you are the user of the site and referred to as "the User". If a consolation, this reference to you in the third person may be deemed as flattery. Now, on to the purpose of this document.

Data Collected

We collect anonymous data from every visitor of the Website to monitor traffic and fix bugs. For example, we collect information like web requests, the data sent in response to such requests, the Internet Protocol address, the browser type, the browser language, and a timestamp for the request.

We may ask you to log in and provide certain personal information (such as your name and email address) in order to be able to save your profile and the documents and comments associated with it. In order to enable these or any other login based features, we use cookies to store session information for your convenience. You can block or delete cookies and still be able to use the Website, although if you do you will then be asked for your username and password every time you log in to the Website.
