We are committed to respecting your data privacy and we avoid collecting information from our products that could identify you as an individual wherever possible. Please note, however, that using our licensing feature does result in us collecting Personally Identifiable Information.
We are Diffblue Limited, AI for Code. We are a company registered in England and Wales number 09958102, with our registered office at Diffblue Ltd, 16c Worcester Place, Oxford, OX1 2JW, UK. We are the controller of the data described in this notice.

Diffblue collects optional, anonymous telemetry data about your usage of Diffblue products to improve them. The data is sent to Diffblue over an encrypted HTTPS connection. It is enabled by default and you can turn it off as described below, though we hope that you will agree to share the data to help us build a better product. We do not sell the data or make it available to third parties – it is only ever used internally at Diffblue.
Please note that if you migrate from a version with telemetry to a version without telemetry, it will be automatically turned off. If you migrate from a version without telemetry to a verison with telemetry, it will be enabled by default (and you can turn it off as described below).

While we cannot guarantee the security of the data, we have implemented generally accepted technical and organizational measures to protect all data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure and unauthorized access, taking into account the nature of the data and the associated risks.
