Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). We use the anonymised data collected to analyse the use of the website and improve our content and user experience accordingly. By using our websites, you consent to the transfer of your data by Google to servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify users and your IP address will not be associated with other data held by Google.
How to manage existing cookies?

Once you have purchased a license for one of our products, you will be automatically subscribed to our mailing list and we will keep you informed of important updates for the product you have purchased. It is essential to communicate with our users about new features or the discontinuation of a particular feature. You can of course unsubscribe at any time: all the emails we send you include an Unsubscribe button. We will never forward your email address to third parties for marketing purposes.
Application crash reports are sent up to our servers without individual data so that we can study them and make fixes.
- Environmental data (operating system version, system status).
- Events within the application (does not include user data).
Our websites and software products may contain links to other websites not related to ChimeraTool. While we make every effort to link to high quality resources, we shall not be liable for the content of such websites or the privacy practices of third parties who operate them. Make sure to check and familiarise yourself with the privacy policies of these service providers before providing them with your personal information.
We would like to inform you that as from 25 May 2018, our company acts according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union.
Please note some of our main aspirations to protect our customers’ security and personal data. We have always paid special attention to user data and the way we process them, but let us show you some examples:
We provide the option to delete your profile
You can initiate this on the https://chimeratool.com/#user-settings page.
You can always check where else you are signed in from to the site, and if that is not you, you can sign out that browser. https://chimeratool.com/#user-sessions
As a first line of defense, your data is protected by security systems specialized in preventing hacking attacks, but our other self-developed security solutions and our ever-running monitoring systems enable us to declare with great certainty that we do everything to prevent unauthorized users from acquiring any sensitive data.
In case of a potential unauthorized physical access to any of our servers, the data stored there is useless, as our storage media are protected by sector-level AES encryption.
All passwords we store are unknown to us as well, since only the passwords’ hash values are stored, randomized with “salt”. This minimizes the risk of any leakage of actual user passwords in case of a potential database leak.
