Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us!

We collect email addresses from those who communicate with us and/or login to use bitHound services. We also collect information with regards to your Bitbucket and/or GitHub repositories as part of our normal analysis. This includes but is not limited to source code, commit history, issues, pull requests, webhooks, collaborators, and user activity. bitHound securely clones your repositories in order to do a complete analysis on your codebase.

bitHound will use your provided OAuth credentials to provide a list of repositories for you to analyze. bitHound will not clone, inspect, or analyze any of your repositories unless analysis or pull requests were explicitly requested by you, or via another user with appropriate permissions to said repository. Permissions are determined based on the access settings that are set on by the provider.

bitHound uses both Read and Write access that are provided by your provider's OAuth credentials. While most of bitHound only uses Read access, some features require Write access. This includes but is not limited to Pull Request creation. For more information on Bitbucket's authentication scopes please see here. For more information on GitHub's authentication scopes please see here.

bitHound will use your email address to contact you about product updates, notifications and important news relevant to our product and service. We will not share your email address(es) with third parties.

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Web pages and the quality of our service, and is not shared with or sold to other organizations for commercial purposes, except to provide products or services you've requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

  • It is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Terms & Conditions, or as otherwise required by law.
  • We transfer information about you if bitHound is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, bitHound will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

bitHound uses the Demographics and Interests feature of Google Analytics that allows us to better understand our users and improve the services we offer. The information gathered is non-personally identifiable. At any time, you may opt-out or customize your Google ad settings. bitHound will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable data with non-personally identifiable data previously collected without notice and the user's consent.

Please note that this Privacy Policy is subject to change.
