Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. We have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can't stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don't store personal information on our servers.

Website Visitors and App Users

Like most websites and applications, PickaxeChat collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. PickaxeChat's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PickaxeChat's visitors use its website and applications. From time to time, PickaxeChat may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website and applications.

Aggregated Statistics

PickaxeChat may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites and applications. PickaxeChat may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PickaxeChat does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

PickaxeChat discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on PickaxeChat's behalf or to provide services available at PickaxeChat's websites and applications, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using PickaxeChat's websites or applications, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PickaxeChat will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, PickaxeChat discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PickaxeChat believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PickaxeChat, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a PickaxeChat website and have supplied your email address, PickaxeChat may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with PickaxeChat and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. PickaxeChat takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. PickaxeChat uses cookies to help PickaxeChat identify and track visitors, their usage of PickaxeChat website, and their website access preferences. PickaxeChat visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using PickaxeChat's websites, with the drawback that certain features of PickaxeChat's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If PickaxeChat, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that PickaxeChat goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of PickaxeChat may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
