Types of Information You May Provide to Us:

If you submit any Personal Data to us relating to other people, you represent that you have the authority to do so and permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. By submitting Personal Data, you grant CoderPad the right to transmit, monitor, retrieve, store and use your information in connection with the operation of the Site.

Types of Information We Collect Through Technology:

When you use our Site, we use technology and Google Analytics to gather information on how visitors are using the Site and Services. Specifically, we use technology to gather information about the following:

An IP address is a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. IP addresses allow computers (including mobile devices and tablets) and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. We collect IP address information so that we can properly manage our system and gather information about how our site is being used. This includes the device type and browser you are using, location data, the pages you are viewing and your interactions on the page. Your IP address may be associated with records containing Personal Data. We collect details of visits to our Site, including the volume of traffic received, logs and the resources that you have accessed. We may also collect certain location information such as your mobile device’s GPS signal, or information about nearby WiFi access points and cell towers. (Please also see our Cookies Notice)

Types of Information We May Collect From Third Parties:

Our Subscribers electronically submit (or cause to be submitted) Personal Data to the Services, which may include names, email addresses, and/or notes about an interview. Our Business Partners may submit analytics and/or enhancing data.


We only collect the information reasonably necessary to respond to inquiries about our Services, to provide you the Services, to carry out our operations, as required by law, and for the other legitimate business purposes, under applicable laws, as provided below:

We do not monitor or profile visitors to our Site or collect, in any automated manner, any special categories of sensitive Personal Data about you. No automated decision-making, including profiling, is used when processing your Personal Data.

Additional Uses of Personal Data:

In addition to the uses described above, we may use your Personal Data for the following purposes if you become a Subscriber or authorized user. Some of these uses may, under certain circumstances be based on your consent, may be necessary to fulfill our contractual commitments to you, or are necessary to serve our legitimate interests in the following business operations:


We may disclose aggregated information that does not identify any individual (and therefore, is not deemed to be Personal Data) without restriction. We share Personal Data with the following categories of recipients:

CoderPad keeps Personal Data on file, but does not share, sell, license or transmit this information to third parties or external vendors unless required to do so by legal, judicial or governmental proceedings, or to provide the Services.


We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to maintain the privacy and security of your Personal Data within our organization. Accordingly, we prevent unauthorized access by a secure firewall and use of security technologies to protect the integrity and privacy of any Personal Data you provide. Although we work hard to protect your Personal Data, CoderPad cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us through online forms and applications, and you do so at your own risk. The Site is not designed to store sensitive personal information such as financial, health or educational records and you should not use the site for that purpose. Please note that email is considered a nonencrypted (and therefore nonsecure) form of communication, and it can be accessed and viewed by others without your knowledge and permission. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information that you consider confidential. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be secure at all times. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below. We will let you know promptly if a breach occurs that may have compromised the privacy or security of your information.

We are not responsible for any outcome if you circumvent any privacy settings or security measures. You are responsible for choosing a password of appropriate strength, not reusing or sharing passwords used on other websites, and keeping your password confidential. CoderPad employees will never ask for your password.


We will retain your Personal Data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy and in order to provide you the Services, and for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you Services. We will also retain your information to comply with our legal obligations, to conduct audits, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.


This Site is only intended for individuals who are at least 16 years of age. We do not knowingly encourage or solicit visitors to this Site who are under the age of 16 or knowingly collect Personal Data from anyone under the age of 16 without parental fiduciary consent. If we learn we have collected or received Personal Data from a child under 16 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 16, please contact us in accordance with the How to Contact Us section below.

We are committed to complying with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Our Service is not directed to children under the age of 13 and children under the age of 13 are not to use the Site or provide any information to our Service without express parental consent. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we receive personal information that we discover was provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly destroy such information.


CoderPad uses Stripe to process online payments made to us (or we may use a similar online payment processor). We may also receive payments directly from you. In connection with the processing of online payments, we do not retain any personally identifiable information or any financial information such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is submitted directly to the payment processor. Any account information received from your direct payment by check or wire transfer to us is kept confidential.


We may periodically send you relevant alerts and newsletters by e-mail. To help improve our Marketing Activities, we often receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail or click on a link included in one of these emails, if your computer supports such capabilities. Instructions on how to unsubscribe from these alerts and newsletters are included in each e-mail.

We will respond to your access request within 30 days. Please note that we may retain certain information, including cached or archived copies, as required by law or for legitimate business purposes.

Certain Exceptions to Deletion Request Rights: You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

Choice and Opt-Out:

Exercising Access, Data Portability and Deletion Rights: To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

Verification of Your Identity: Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. You must:

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Where you have provided consent to process personal information, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. You may do this by contacting us as set forth in the How to Contact Us section below.


We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within thirty (30) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.


What are cookies and why are cookies used: A cookie is a piece of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your computer as a tag that identifies your computer. While cookies are often only used to measure website usage (such as number of visitors and duration of visit) and effectiveness (such as topics visitors are most interested in) and to allow for ease of navigation or use and, as such, are not associated with any personal information, they are also used at times to personalize a known visitor’s experience of a website by being associated with profile information or user preferences. Over time this information provides valuable insight to help improve the user experience.

How we use Cookies: We use cookies and related technologies (“Cookies”) to provide Services, gather information when users navigate through the Sites to enhance and personalize the experience, to understand usage patterns, and to improve our Sites, products, and Services.

Cookies on our Sites are generally divided into the following categories:

How to Control Cookies: You can review your Internet browser settings, typically under the sections "Help” or “Internet Options,” to exercise choices you have for certain Cookies. If you choose to block all cookies, you may not have access to our Site, our Services will not function as intended, and you will not be able to log in. If you have blocked all cookies and wish to make full use of the features and Services we offer, we recommend enabling at least first-party cookies. Rather than blocking all cookies, you can choose to block only third-party cookies. This will allow CoderPad Services to function as intended. To learn more about the use of Cookies by Google for analytics see

As of January 1, 2020, under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), California Residents have the right to request the following information from CoderPad by emailing and CoderPad will provide the following information to you upon verification of your identity:

Consumers (as defined in the CCPA) may opt out of any marketing by us and from the disclosure of your Personal Data to third parties. In addition, please refer to the following section of this Privacy Policy: TYPES OF PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT, HOW AND WHY WE USE YOUR INFORMATION, HOW WE SHARE AND DISCLOSE PERSONAL DATA, and CHILDREN’S PRIVACY.

You agree that in accordance with the CCPA, CoderPad may combine Personal Information for the purposes of detecting data security incidents or protecting against fraudulent or illegal activity. This combined Personal Information may include IP addresses, preferences, web pages visited prior to coming to your or another Business’ website, information about browser, network or device (such as browser type and version, operating system, internet service provider, preference settings, unique device IDs and language and other regional settings), and information about how other users interact with you (such as timestamps, clicks, scrolling, browsing times and load times).

Non-Discrimination: If you elect to exercise any of your rights under CCPA, CoderPad will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless otherwise permitted by the CCPA, we will not: deny you goods or services, charge you a different price or rate for our goods or services, or provide you a different level or quality of goods or services because you exercised such rights. Under the current definition of CCPA, CoderPad does not sell your Personal Data.


Your personal information will be treated in a secure and confidential manner in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). CoderPad is a processor of personal information submitted to the Site or collected through the Site on behalf of or at the direction of our Subscribers. CoderPad does not control or own the data submitted by its Subscribers to the Service. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate personal information should first direct his or her query to the CoderPad Subscriber (the person or company that requested that you participate in an interview using the Service). CoderPad will provide assistance with requests that Subscribers are not able to complete. If the Subscriber requests that CoderPad remove the personal information, we will respond to the request within 30 days.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy or our privacy practices, including the processing of your personal information, if you would like to exercise your data rights under applicable laws, or if you believe your privacy rights have been violated, please contact us as provided in the section How To Contact Us below.


CoderPad is certified by and complies with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personally identifiable information transferred from the European Union to the United States. Please see our Privacy Shield page page for further details on our Privacy Shield compliance.

On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union issued a judgment declaring as “invalid” the European Commission’s Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. As a result of that decision, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer a valid mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States. This decision does not relieve CoderPad, as long as it is a participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, of our obligations under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.

As an alternative to the Privacy Shield, CoderPad adopts the Standard Contractual Clauses as part of our commercial Terms of Service.CoderPad has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please visit JAMS Privacy Shield Dispute Resolution for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.

Occasionally we may provide links to other sites for your convenience and information. These sites operate independently from our Sites and are not under our control. These sites may have their own privacy notices or terms of use, which you should review if you visit any sites linked through our Sites. We are not responsible for the content or use of these unrelated sites.


CoderPad may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at CoderPad’s sole discretion. CoderPad encourages visitors to frequently check this Privacy Policy and its effective date for any changes.
