At Not Quite a Developer, accessible from https://notquite.dev/ (collectively, the “Service”), one of our main priorities is the privacy of our Members and Site Visitors. This Privacy Policy document contains types of information that is collected and recorded by Not Quite a Developer and how we use it.

If you have additional questions or require more information about our Privacy Policy, do not hesitate to contact us.

Members / Site Visitors

This section applies to the personal information we collect and process from a Member or Site Visitor through the provision of the Service. If you are not a Member, other sections of this policy may be more applicable to you and your data. In this section, "you" and "your" refer to Members and Site Visitors.

A. Information We Collect

The personal information that we collect depends on the context of your interactions with Not Quite a Developer, your Not Quite a Developer account settings, the products and features you use, your location, and applicable law. However, the personal information we collect broadly falls into the following categories:

(i) Information you provide to us: You (or your organization) may provide certain personal information to us when you become a member and consult with us, send us an email or communicate with us in any other way.

This information may include:

  • Business contact information (such as your name, job title, organization, location, phone number, email address, and country);
  • Marketing information (such as your contact preferences);
  • Account log-in credentials (such as your email address when you sign up to become a member);
  • Troubleshooting and support data (which is data you provide or we otherwise collect in connection with support queries we receive from you. This may include contact or authentication data, the content of your chats and other communications with us related to your help inquiry); and
  • Payment information if applicable at some point in the future (including your credit card numbers and associated identifiers and billing address).

(ii) Information we collect automatically: When you use the site, we may automatically collect or receive certain information about your device and usage of the site (collectively “Service Usage Data”). In some (but not all) countries, including countries in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), this information is considered personal information under applicable data protection laws. We use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect some of this information.

B. Use of Personal Information

We may use the personal information we collect or receive through the Service (alone or in combination with other data) for the purposes and on the legal bases identified below:

  • To send you email notifications about new posts, comments and/or related material.
  • To send you system alert messages in reliance on our legitimate interests in administering the Service and providing certain features. For example, we may inform you about temporary or permanent changes to our Service, such as planned outages, or send you account, security or compliance notifications, such as new features, version updates, releases, abuse warnings, and changes to this privacy policy.
  • To communicate with you about your account and provide customer support to perform our contract with you for the use of the Service or where we have not entered into a contract with you, in reliance on our legitimate interests in administering and supporting our Service.
  • To enforce compliance with our Terms and Conditions and applicable law, and to protect the rights and safety of our Members in reliance on our legitimate interest to protect against misuse or abuse of our Service and to pursue remedies available. This may include developing tools and algorithms that help us prevent violations. For example, sometimes we review the content our Members send or display to ensure it complies with our Terms and Conditions. To improve that process, we have software that helps us find content that may violate our Terms and Conditions. This benefits all Members and Site Visitors who comply with our Terms and Conditions because it reduces abuse and helps us maintain a reliable platform. Please do not use Not Quite a Developer to send or display confidential information.

  • To prosecute and defend a court, arbitration, or similar legal proceeding.
  • To respond to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
  • To provide, support and improve the Service in reliance on our legitimate interests in administering and improving the Service and providing certain features. For example, this may include sharing your information with third parties in order to provide and support our Service or to make certain features of the Service available to you. When we share your personal information with third parties, we take steps to protect your information in a manner that is consistent with our obligations under applicable privacy laws.
  • To provide suggestions to you and to provide tailored features within our Service that optimize and personalize your experience in reliance on our legitimate interests in administering the Service and providing certain features. Some of these suggestions are generated through analysis of the data used in our data analytics projects, as described below.
  • To personalize the Service, content and advertisements we serve to you in reliance on our legitimate interests in supporting our marketing activities and providing certain features within the Service. We may use your personal information to serve you specifically, such as to deliver marketing information, product recommendations and non-transactional communications (e.g., email, telemarketing calls, SMS, or push notifications) about us, in accordance with your marketing preferences and this privacy policy.

  • Similarly, if personal information is collected or processed on the basis of consent, the data subject can withdraw their consent at any time.
