SimilarTech interacts with current and prospective clients and the general public via its Website, available at: https://www.similartech.com ("Website") or Service. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") describes our practices of processing data from visitors to the Website or from our clients and partners ("Business Partners") once they register to receive our API, analytic data, insights and filtered dashboard tool (all, collectively the "Service").

  1. Where you sign up for any of our services, we process your personal data in order to perform our contract with you;
  2. If we have a legitimate interest in processing data, such as for direct marketing or online identifiers when you access our Website; or
  3. We will also process your personal data where you have provided us with consent to do so.

What Type of Information We Collect

Depending on your interaction with us (meaning, if you are just browsing our Website, or if you have registered to our Services and opened an account, etc.), we may collect two types of information you, as follows:

  • Non-Personal Data: The first type of information is non-identifiable information which may be made available or gathered through your use of the Services. To clarify, we are not aware of your identity due to such information ("Non-Personal Information"). The Non-Personal Information which is being collected may include your aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted or automatically collected such as (but not limited to): the time and date you access our Website, your actions within our Services (e.g., registration, pages viewed, etc.) and approximate geo-location (country level).
  • Personal Data: The second type of information is individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable effort identify an individual ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes either: (i) contact information such as your name, email address, etc., which you have submitted voluntarily; or (ii) your Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses (the addresses of computers on the Internet). Note that, while IP is considered personally identifiable information in many jurisdictions (such as the EEA), there are some jurisdictions in which such data is not considered as Personal Information. Therefore, we treat such information as Personal Information, in accordance with applicable laws, however we do not attempt to analyze or determine your identity based on such information or otherwise combine it with any Personal Information such as your name or email address.

For example, if you are a Business Partner, we will not be able to provide you with access to the Platform if you do not provide us with the information required through the registration process. In the event we combine Personal Information with Non-Personal Information, the combined information will be treated as Personal Information for as long as it remains combined.
