“Personal Information” is information that you provide to us that personally identifies you, such as your name, phone number, or email address. Except for your email address, first name, last name & time zone, Conceptworld does not collect or require end-users of Notezilla.Net Service to furnish Personal Information.
“Non-Personal Information” is information that cannot by itself be directly associated with a specific person or entity. Non-Personal Information includes but is not limited to your computer’s configuration and the version of Notezilla app you use.
“Potentially Personal Information” is information that is Non-Personal Information in and of itself but that could be used in conjunction with other information to personally identify you. For example, Uniform Resource Locators (“URLs”) (the addresses of web pages) and Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (the addresses of computers on the internet) can be Personal Information when combined with internet service provider (“ISP”) records. Also license information is an example of Potentially Personal Information.
“Operational Data” means aggregated data regarding users’ usage of the Services, such as access log data (such as data about when people access the service and with what piece of software), how many records of each type users were creating in aggregate (such as how many notes & contacts users have created and synced). Conceptworld collects Operational Data to help us so that we can ensure that we have sufficient storage to meet user needs and otherwise to help with the operations of the Services.
“Usage Statistics” refers to the Non-Personal Information Conceptworld will use to understand your use of the Service. Such information may include but is not limited to the amount of data you are storing with the service, the frequency with which you access the service, bandwidth utilization, and traffic shaping.
“User Data” is the digital content stored on, manipulated, and transmitted to and from Conceptworld’s servers by means of your use of Notezilla.Net. Examples of User Data include those items that you choose to synchronize across devices using Notezilla.Net, such as your notes, contacts & preferences.
Gathering, Use and Disclosure of Transmission Data
Before you are able to access Notezilla.Net, you will be required to register. To register, the Service will require the following Personal Information and Potentially Personal Information from you: your first name, last name, email address, and password. Conceptworld will not make any of this information public. The first name & last name will be shown only to another user trying to add you as their contact. All data are transferred to Conceptworld using encryption called SSL. Your email address is used by us to provide you the services, such as allowing us to help you recover your account if you lose your password. (Feel free to use an email account set up just for using Notezilla.Net Service if you’d like.) Your password is transferred to Conceptworld using SSL encryption but is only retained by Conceptworld’s servers in a hash format (which means a low level of encryption is applied).
Once you have registered, your password is used to help prevent unauthorized access to your account.
Your data is only used to provide Notezilla.Net service and for email communication (service and promotional related).
Encrypted User Data
The Notezilla.Net Service encrypts User Data on your computer and uploads encrypted User Data over the network using SSL communication. We believe that user privacy is important, and we require that the User Data is encrypted to reside on Conceptworld’s Notezilla.Net Service servers. Those items you choose to synchronize across devices using Notezilla.Net are examples of User Data that is designed to be encrypted before leaving your computer. These can include your notes, contacts & settings.
Data Used to Provide the Services
Conceptworld receives and uses the following information for the purpose of providing and improving the Notezilla.Net Service: IP address, date and time of accessing the Notezilla.Net Service, and various operational data such as the type of client OS and Notezilla app version.
Disclosure to Third Parties
To safeguard your privacy, the Notezilla.Net Service is purposely designed so that the amount of data that Conceptworld has access to is limited, either by encryption or not collecting it in the first place. This is why User Data and your password are either encrypted before being sent to Conceptworld’s servers or not sent to Conceptworld’s servers at all. And this is also why Conceptworld doesn’t collect other information at all like gender or phone number. For that set of information that Conceptworld does have, Conceptworld only makes Personal Information and Potentially Personal Information available to its employees, contractors, and selected contributors who signed confidentiality agreements that prohibit them from using or disclosing your Personal Information other than for Conceptworld purposes to provide the Service. Furthermore, Conceptworld will not knowingly disclose Personal Information or Potentially Personal Information to other third parties unless required to do so, such as in order to comply with any law, regulation, or valid legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, court order, or if necessary or appropriate to address an unlawful or harmful activity.
What Data is Analyzed by Conceptworld?
Without your explicit approval and opt-in, Conceptworld will only use the Usage Statistics to understand your use of the Notezilla.Net Service.
How Are the Usage Statistics Used?
Conceptworld will use the Usage Statistics gathered through the operation of the Notezilla.Net Service to improve Notezilla.Net Service and other related Conceptworld products and services. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Conceptworld and its community is able to better design products and services to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use.
Where is the Operational Data Available?
Notezilla.Net Service users should expect that Conceptworld will make all Usage Statistics publicly available at some point. However, any publicly available Usage Statistics will only be reported on an aggregate, anonymous basis. No Personal Information or Potentially Personal Information will be available in any of these public reports.
European Union Residents – GDPR
The following additional provisions apply to Personally Information collected by Conceptworld from European Union residents located therein at the time the data is collected (“PI” or “data”). For EU data subjects, in the event of any conflict between these provisions and those set forth above, these provisions shall control. The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) governs the processing and protection of your PI and affords you the following rights you can enforce by contacting Conceptworld through firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You may access, update, or delete your PI via our apps / Website or by contacting us at email@example.com.

Notwithstanding the forgoing, exceptions may apply for data maintained:
- Pursuant to any legal or contractual obligation;
- In relation to resolving, defending or enforcing our rights;
- For accurate business and financial reporting.
- You may transfer your PI to another entity by contacting us at email@example.com.

How to Disable or Opt-Out of Notezilla.Net
If at any time, you decide you no longer want to use the Notezilla.Net Service, you may send an email to email@example.com requesting us to delete your Notezilla.Net account & user data.
In certain other limited situations, Conceptworld may disclose your Personal Information, such as when necessary to protect our websites and operations (e.g., against attacks); to protect the rights, privacy, safety, or property of Conceptworld or its users; to enforce our terms of service; and to pursue available legal remedies. Additionally, Conceptworld may need to transfer Personal Information to an affiliate or successor in the event of a change of our corporate structure or status, such as in the event of a restructuring, sale, or bankruptcy.
We work with third parties who provide services (like companies who allow purchasing & renewing of subscription) and content delivery networks and other services of an administrative nature. We may share Personal Information and Potentially Personal Information about you with such third parties for the purpose of enabling these third parties to provide such services, which is why we limit the nature and scope of what we collect about you in the first place.
Transfer of Data to the U.S.
Privacy laws and common practices vary from country to country. Some countries may provide for less legal protection of your personal data; others may provide more legal protection. By using the Notezilla.Net Service, you consent to the transfer of the information collected, as outlined by this Policy, to Conceptworld or Conceptworld's Service Providers in the United States, which may provide a lesser level of data security than in your country of residence.
We will retain any information collected for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required by law and/or regulations.
This policy does not apply to other Conceptworld websites, products, or services. It also does not apply to your use of third-party providers of the Notezilla app or use of non-Conceptworld servers. If you choose to use a Notezilla app or servers provided by an entity other than Conceptworld, this policy does not apply and Conceptworld assumes no liability whatsoever for such services.
If you use Conceptworld’s Notezilla.Net servers and a Notezilla app (meaning the software that resides on your computer that talks to Conceptworld’s servers) that was not developed by Conceptworld, here’s what is different: the third-party client may send different information to our servers and that information may not be encrypted. So none of the information in this policy about what information Conceptworld receives and in what format it is received applies. However, to the extent Conceptworld’s servers receive information sent by a third-party client app, we will only disclose it to third parties to the same extent as we would information that was transmitted to our servers from a Conceptworld-created client app.
For More Information
You may request access, correction, or deletion of Personal Information or Potentially Personal Information, as permitted by law. We will seek to comply with such requests, provided that we have sufficient information to identify the Personal Information or Potentially Personal Information related to you. Any such requests or other questions or concerns regarding this Policy and Conceptworld’s data protection practices should be addressed to:
