Opera VPN (Now known as “We” or “Us”) is the owner of https://www.operaVPN/ (the “Website”). We are not affiliated with the Opera browser of its VPN.
We collect minimal information about our users, necessary to improve the user experience and improve the site. We will not sell or trade your personal data without permission.
By visiting the website, you agree that we can collect this data and use it for the reasons stated below.
The Type of Information We Collect
We do not require anyone to leave personal information or identifiers when visiting the website. If you choose to leave a comment or send feedback, you will need to add your name and an email address in the feedback form. This data will be stored on our website and would be visible to our employees but never shared with outside agencies.
We reserve the right to have several different analytic platforms that collect different types of data, but none of which collect personal identifying information.
The type of data we collect and analyze includes, but isn’t limited to:
- How you got to our website, including keywords used in a search engine of the link you clicked to bring you to the site.
- The pages that you visit while on the website
- What kind of device (i.e., computer or mobile) you are using, including the operating system
- General geographic location
- Language setting of your browser
- Did you click on links or buttons, and if so, which ones
- Tracking your mouse movement
Our team uses this information to understand better how our readers react to our pages, blogs, and reviews. It helps us improve pages that don’t connect with readers and find bugs, broken links, and buttons that we might have missed otherwise.
All the data is entered into our data analysis system without any possible way of connecting it back to the original user. Meaning we can’t see the IP address of each individual user, only that a certain number of people clicked the link, visited the page, or came from a certain region.
The anonymous analytical data is stored on a secure platform and can only be accessed by specific employees in our organization. With that being said, we still will not share any of the data we collect with anyone unless required to do so by our local laws.
One of the ways that we can collect data about how you browse our site is to insert small data files, known as cookies, onto your computer. The cookies do not give us a window or entry into your computer or give us any data stored there. They are just another tool we can use to help us improve our website and see how you interact with the site. Cookies are also a valuable business tool for us, and you need to earn a commission if you click on a link.
You have the option to decline cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Check out your browser’s help guide for information on how to do this.
Use by Children
Our website is not targeted at children under 18 years old, and therefore we do not knowingly collect any type of data on them. Children under 18 who do visit the site may not provide any personal information to us without the consent of a parent or guardian. We hold ourselves to the highest child protection and privacy standard and are completely in line with GDPR regulations. If we discover that a minor has submitted personal information, we have the right to remove it from our servers.
