What information do we collect

The information we collect is all automatically

This information is used to improve our products and services. We collect the bare minimum of what we need and we aim to be 100% transparent about it.

The information we collect automatically

Most modern web browsers share some information with the webservers so that the right content can be served to you.

For example, your browser will “tell” the server whether you are browsing from a desktop or a mobile device and the webserver will use this information to display the desktop website or the mobile website accordingly.

This information including your browser type, IP address, language preference, time and date of access and operating system is logged on the server in a protected log file hidden from the outside world.

RailCheck also uses analytics tools such as Google Analytics (privacy policy) to understand how users interact and use our website.

This information along with anonymous log information is stored in your browser as cookies and will be transmitted to the respective vendors and used to create aggregate data for statistical analysis.

This anonymous aggregate data is used to improve our products and services.

None of the information collected will be used either directly or indirectly (through third party vendors) to track or collect personally identifiable information or pick out individual computers or users.

Most modern browsers will let you disable cookies and enable tracking protection and we will always respect these preferences and pick third party vendors that do the same.

You can also opt out of Google Analytics using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
