D3Splint Privacy Policy

Plain Language Privacy Policy

This is the privacy policy of the D3Splint application, not of D3Tool.com.  For the website privacy policy, please see [LINK].  Because D3Tool.com uses online payment and has accounts, it’s policy is fundamentally different than the D3Splint application.

Data Collection

D3Splint collects anonymous usage data to help us understand how and how much the software is being used.  Currently, this happens automatically and there is not a way to disable it simply because the system I have set up is rudimentary.  However in version v0.6.0, an opt out setting will be available.

What Data is Collected?

  1. A “hash” of your computers MAC address.  This is a way to scramble something unique.  It allows us to asses the number of unique computers being used, without having to know “which’ computers are using them.
  2. The approximate location of your internet service provider to undertsand regionally where D3Splint is being used.  We simply use a call to ipinfo.io (a website). To see this location, you can visit the website ipinfo.io and copy the coordinates form the white box into google maps.  It should be quite far away fro m your actual location unless your internet service provider is really close to where you are using D3Splint.  (Please email me if for any reason this location matches your actual address)
  3. The Operating System – Eg, Windows 7, Mac OSX etc
  4. The version of D3Splint
  5. The operator being used, and sometimes how long it took to complete (performance data)
  6. Time and date

What Data is Not Collected

  1. Nothing linking to your name, address or credit card information.  D3Splint has no idea who is using it.
  2. Nothing linking to your D3tool.com account.  The data tracking is completely account agnostic and not connected to this website or to the e-commerce portion of this website.
  3. Nothing personally identifiable. None of the computer name, account name, user name etc
  4. Any data you manually type into Blender.  For example, when you save a file, the file name is not recorded.  Also any text from the text embossing tools which might contain identifiers.

What would happen if our tracking data was leaked/hacked?

In short, nothing.  Our rule of thumb is that we want to be responsible for as little personal information as possible.  If our usage statistics were hacked or stolen, all the thief would have is a large data set of how much D3Splint has been used.  Even if someone could reverse the hash of MAC addresses, all they would have is a list of MAC addresses linked to the city in which that computer was used.  That MAC address is in no way linked to any account information or credit card information by us.

Specifically

  • A “hash” of your computers MAC address.  This is a way to scramble something unique into something else that is unique, but practically impossible to do backwards. It allows us to asses the number of unique computers being used, without having to know “which’ computers are using them.

To see this location, you can visit the website ipinfo.io and copy the coordinates form the white box into google maps.  It should be quite far away from your actual location unless your internet service provider is very close to where you are using D3Splint.  (Please email me if for any reason this location matches your actual address and I will disable this immediately).
  • The Operating System – Eg, Windows 7, Mac OSX etc
  • The version of D3Splint
