Your privacy is critically important to us.
Like most website operators, 9to5Linux collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, the date and time of each visitor request, as well as the pages you visited throughout the site. 9to5Linux’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 9to5Linux’s visitors use its website. However, we never store any non-personally-identifying information.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. 9to5Linux does NOT collect, store or share your Personal Information to third parties.
