Privacy Policy

Pin Tools does not store any users’ data. When a user authenticates the application to interact with Pinterest, the authentication token is stored on the users computer, in their browser to be exact. If the user uses Pin Tools again in the future, that token will be read and re-used so that the user doesn’t have to authenticate the app every time they visit. If the user visits from another computer or using another browser on the same computer, they will need to authenticate again, because the authentication token is only stored in the browser that they access Pin Tools from.

The image, note and link that the user specifies when clicking the Pin button gets sent straight to Pinterest. There are no third party servers that could peek at the data.

When a pin is created in Pin Tools, there is an event that is sent to Google Analytics. This is purely an indication of a user using the application, and doesn’t have any identifiable data associated with it. This is the only custom event tracking that is occuring on Pin Tools.

Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on a user's prior visits to this, and other websites. Google's use of advertising cookies enables it and its partners to serve ads to users based on the sites the user visits on the Internet

Users may opt out of personalized advertising by visiting Ads Settings.

Google analytics is attached to the site, tracking user visits in order to gauge user interest.

Bugsnag is also attached to the site, tracking errors that occur on the site. It doesn’t capture any personal information, only information regarding a specific error, if one occurs.

This application is built as an extension to Pinterest. In no way could it replace using Pinterests’ own website and mobile applications.
