Privacy Policy

OptOutCode is a fully decentralized Universal Opt-Out Mechanism, and the Service does not collect any information reasonably linkable to individuals (“Personal Data”). One of the best features of OptOutCode is that it does not require to build, maintain, query, or secure a central database of opting-out users, devices, or apps. The signal is detected locally: either by the programs and apps running on the device that has OptOutCode turned on (e.g., an app on a smartphone), or by other devices that connect to the device of the Consumer that has OptOutCode turned on (e.g., a SmartTV connected to a Wi-Fi router with OptOutCode on, a fitness watch connected to a smartphone with OptOutCode on). This architecture makes it privacy-preserving, more secure, without a single point of failure, cheaper, and faster. If fact, Controllers may not need to maintain a database of OptOutCode users at all, since the ‘0$S” prefix can be read every time and trigger action (or not) with every instance. We also want to point out that device names are not unique identifiers of devices (as opposed to, for instance, the Bluetooth MAC address of a device or the IMEI of a phone) and they are broadcast anyway,consequently adding the OptOutCode would not be effective in creating a digital fingerprint. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) applies to the data practices of (the “Site”), which is the website concerning the OptOutCode universal opt-out concept (the “Service”). The Site is currently operated by Privacy4Cars, Inc. (“We,” “Us” or “Our”).
