During your use of the services that can be accessed on our website, https://rankscience.com, later referred to as "RankScience", we may require you to provide us with personal data. “Personal data” means any data that enables a person to be identified, e.g. your family name, given name, avatar, email address, or company name, as well as any other information with which you choose to provide us.
Your personal data is collected to meet one or several of the following requirements:
We will inform you, when requesting your personal data, if certain data must be provided or if it is optional. We will also inform you of the consequences should you not wish to provide this data.
Only our employees, the services we use, and trusted third-party applications may have access to your personal data. Government agencies may also be recipients of your personal data, exclusively to meet legal obligations.
We shall not sell, transfer or lease out your personal data to third parties.
For your information, we take all necessary precautions, as well as the appropriate organizational and technical measures, to maintain the security, integrity and confidentiality of your personal data, and in particular to prevent it from being deformed or damaged and to prevent any unauthorized third party from accessing it.
RankScience takes security seriously. We take various steps to protect information you provide to us from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store, and the current state of technology.

When transferring data from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland, RankScience relies upon a variety of legal mechanisms, including contracts with our users. RankScience complies with the EU-U.S. and Swiss–U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union, the European Economic Area, and Switzerland to the United States. You can find RankScience's Privacy Shield certification here. You can also learn more about Privacy Shield on its website.
RankScience is subject to oversight by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. JAMS is the US-based independent organization responsible for reviewing and resolving complaints about our Privacy Shield compliance — free of charge to you. We ask that you first submit any such complaints directly to us via [email protected]. If you aren't satisfied with our response, please contact JAMS. In the event your concern still isn't addressed by JAMS, you may be entitled to a binding arbitration under Privacy Shield and its principles.
Within the scope of our authorization to do so, and in accordance with our commitments under the Privacy Shield, RankScience will provide individuals access to personal data about them. RankScience also will take reasonable steps to enable individuals to correct, amend, or delete personal data that is demonstrated to be inaccurate.
RankScience is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives, under the Privacy Shield Framework, and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. RankScience complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.
We may change this policy from time to time, and if we do we will post any changes on this page. If you continue to use the Services after those changes are in effect, you agree to the revised policy.
