Privacy Policy

The Developer Connect Community is managed and operated by FactWorks GmbH and its subsidiaries (“FactWorks”, “we’, “us”, or “our”), an independent market research and analytics company founded in 2002, with offices in Berlin and San Mateo.

Privacy and confidentiality of your personal information is always a top priority at FactWorks. All individual information you provide to FactWorks will remain strictly confidential and be used for market research purposes only. The Developer Connect Community Privacy Policy below outlines the information we collect, the usage and sharing of collected information, and opt-out policy.

The information we collect:

To become part of the Developer Connect Community, you will be invited to complete a brief survey for qualification. It may include basic personal questions and some work-related questions (e.g. the type of company or organization you are working for). We also collect your name, email address, phone number and home address for further research invitations and delivery of incentives and rewards. Depending on research purposes of the projects, further surveys or interviews may ask for specific work-related information such as the platform or software you use for app development. However, FactWorks does NOT ask for or collect your private information such as social security, bank account or credit card numbers.

Usage and sharing of collected information:

The information you provide is used only for the purposes of better understanding your work, interests, activities and profile. We respect your privacy and keep your name, address, email or any other personally identifiable information completely confidential. Your answers will be reported in an anonymous form, thus no inference about your personal data can be made. We may share data with trusted partners to help us code open-end responses. Your personal information will be removed prior to data sharing.

The Developer Connect Community participant personal information is stored in our proprietary database and can be accessed only by employees of FactWorks. We maintain appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect information. Your personal information is used only to communicate with you as a community member. We do not sell, rent, or trade your information and no one will ever try to sell you anything as a result of your participation in the Developer Connect Community. FactWorks will disclose your personal information, without notice, ONLY if required to do so by law

Opt-out Policy:

If you decide to opt-out from participating in the Developer Connect Community, please email Contact@Devconnect.org with “Opt-out” in the subject line. Please allow 3 to 5 business days for us to remove your information from our database.

Notification of changes:

FactWorks will absolutely make sure to obtain your consent if we need to use or share your information in a different manner than stated in this Privacy Policy. We will notify you 15 days before we make changes in this policy and give you the opportunity to review and comment on the revised policy before continuing to use our services.
