restylethis is based on a simple bargain: if you tell restylethis your preferences for how you would like websites to be displayed, it will transform sites to suit those preferences.
We have been careful to make sure that restylethis does not ask for any information which isn’t necessary to personalise your website experience. restylethis stores your settings for how you wish to view and use websites. It does not store settings on any abilities or disabilities you may have.
However, some people may be concerned that their choice of theme might allow people to infer information about their abilities or disabilities if they get hold of this information.
As we value the privacy and security of your preference information highly we have done two things to make sure you can trust restylethis with this information:
Firstly, you are in complete control of where your preference information is stored. If you choose to store your themes on your device, they are stored in a local-storage object on the device. If you choose to store them in the cloud, they are stored in a secure database on our cloud servers, accessed through your restylethis account username and password.
Secondly, if you store your themes in a restylethis user account so you can access your themes on any device, your themes are stored in our cloud database in a way which is secure and anonymous. Your username and password information will not be shared with third parties. We ask you to choose a username which is different from your real name, to ensure that information in our user database isn’t linked with your real identity but the username that only you know. This ensures that you are the only person who will be able to connect your real identity with your preferences.
To enable restylethis to work on the sites that include it, your preference information is communicated with websites in two ways:
restylethis passes your preferences anonymously to the site’s servers to enable pages to be transformed before they are displayed on your device
restylethis passes your preferences anonymously to the site’s analytics engine, enabling the site’s owners to count the number of people who are using different themes while browsing the site’s pages, but never to track individual people’s usage of the site via your username and password.
If you have any questions about how restylethis assures your privacy, please Contact Us and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you.
