Information We Collect Through the Website

This Website does not collect personally identifiable information from your computer when you browse the Website and request pages from our servers. This means that, unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with personally identifiable information, we will not know your name, your e-mail address, or any other personally identifiable information.

When you request a page from our Website, our servers log the information provided in the HTTP request header, JavaScript or similar technical tools, including the IP number, the time of the request, the URL of your request and other information. We collect this information in order to make our Website function correctly and provide you the functionality that you see on the Website, as our servers use this information to deliver to you the pages on this Website. We also use this information to better understand how visitors use our Website and how we can better tune our Website, its contents, and functionality to meet your needs. However, this information is not associated with any personally identifiable information of persons browsing the Website.

For additional information and resources on COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Website. The Oxygen Forensics Website and any Software or Services available on that site are not directed at children under 13 years of age and, therefore, COPPA does not apply.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Notice

Oxygen Forensics does not track users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does use do not track (DNT) signals, however we do not respond to DNT requests. However, some third party sites may keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your web browser may allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.

Oxygen Forensics does not authorize the collection of personally identifiable information by third parties and third parties cannot collect this information unless you provide it to them directly.

Cookies and Web Beacons

The Website uses “cookie” and “web beacon” technology. “Cookies” are short pieces of data generated by a web server that a website stores on a user’s computer. Certain pages on our Website may require the use of a cookie for purposes of keeping information you enter on multiple pages together. Cookies also enable us to customize our Website and offerings to your needs and provide you with a better online experience with us. In addition, cookies are used to:

  • measure usage of various pages on our Website to help us make our information more pertinent to your needs and easier for you to access;
  • identify and categorized the internet webpages from which the visitor came to the Website and in order to observe browsing patterns; and
  • provide functionality such as online orders, Oxygen Forensics services and other functionality that we believe would be of interest and value to you.

The types of cookies that we use are referred to as “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted once you leave the Website. Persistent cookies remain on your computer hard drive until you delete them. We do not use cookies to gather information concerning your visits to other websites, nor ascertain any personally identifiable information about you apart from what you voluntarily provide us in your dealings with Oxygen Forensics. Cookies do not, under ordinary circumstances, corrupt or damage your computer, programs, or computer files.

In addition, the service providers we use to serve and host our advertisements, and/or deliver our e-mails use session and persistent cookies, to track the number of times the Website is accessed and whether the site was accessed from an advertisement.

Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A web beacon is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a website. As opposed to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. These web beacons are not tied to personally identifiable information. The use of a web beacons allows the site to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the web beacon. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website. Oxygen Forensics uses the information provided by web beacons to develop a better understanding of how the Website’s visitors use the Website, and to facilitate those visitors’ interactions with the Website. Oxygen Forensics may make the aggregate data obtained from web analytics (including from our third party analytics providers, if applicable) publicly available. If this data is made available, none of the information will be personally identifying information or potentially-personally identifying information.

Disclosure of Information to Third Parties

We will only do so if we have a good-faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) comply with laws, regulations, or government requests or (2) to investigate or protect against harmful activities to our guests, visitors, associates, or property (including the Website or Services), or to others. If we are required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide your personally identifiable information, we will only do so upon receipt of appropriate documentation. We may also disclose your information to investigate violation of and enforce our Terms of Service. Please know that we do not take this responsibility lightly. Your privacy is of paramount importance to us.

Oxygen Forensics does use the services of third parties, such as e-mail service providers, purchase, shipping and order processing merchants and marketing companies that act as independent contractors on behalf of Oxygen Forensics. These parties are contractually prohibited from using personally identifiable information for any purpose other than for the purpose Oxygen Forensics specifies and are expected to provide the same level of protection for personal information as required by the Data Privacy Framework Principles. We do provide non-personally identifiable information to certain service providers for their use on an aggregated basis for the purpose of performing their contractual obligations to us. We prohibit Oxygen Forensics’ affiliates from selling personal information. We prohibit Oxygen Forensics’ affiliates from transferring personal information to outside entities without your approval.

Securing the Transmission and Storage of Information

Oxygen Forensics operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our users. Oxygen Forensics takes steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or from the Website or Services. Your use of the Website and Services is at your own risk.

We treat the information you provide to us as confidential information; it is, accordingly, subject to our company’s security procedures and corporate policies regarding protection and use of confidential information. After personally identifiable information reaches Oxygen Forensics it is stored on a server with physical and electronic security features as customary in the industry, including utilization of login/password procedures and electronic firewalls designed to block unauthorized access from outside of Oxygen Forensics. Because laws applicable to personal information vary by country, our offices or other business operations may put in place additional measures that vary depending on the applicable legal requirements. Information collected on the sites covered by this Privacy Policy is processed and stored in the United States and possibly other jurisdictions and also in other countries where Oxygen Forensics and its service providers conduct business. All Oxygen Forensics employees are aware of our privacy and security policies and are required by Oxygen Forensics to abide by these policies. Your information is only accessible to those employees who need it in order to perform their jobs.

Change of Control

In the event that all or substantially all of Oxygen Forensics’ stock and/or all or substantially all assets are transferred or sold to another entity, Oxygen Forensics may transfer personally identifiable information to the acquiring entity. If, as a result of such a business transition, your personally identifiable information will be used in a materially different manner, you will be given notice and the opportunity to give consent pursuant to our policy regarding notification of changes.


Opt-In and Disclosure

You can always choose whether or not to disclose personally identifiable information and that choice will not prevent you from using the Website and having limited access to the Website and Services. Please note, however, if you should choose to withhold certain requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the Services dependent upon the collection of this information and you will be given an opportunity to “opt-in” and make your preference choices for any items that are optional and which are not a prerequisite for our rendering such Services.

Opt-Out Options

You can choose at any time to opt-out of receiving emails from Oxygen Forensics by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email you receive from Oxygen Forensics or by contacting Oxygen Forensics directly at If you elect to opt-out, we will not, as applicable, share your personal information with third parties or send you emails. However, we may continue to use your personal information for internal purposes, to enhance your user experience or as necessary to administer the site or comply with applicable law.

Registration Email and Contact by Oxygen Forensics

We reserve the right to send a one-time registration confirmation email, and infrequent service alert messages to users to inform you of specific changes that may impact your ability to use a service that you have previously signed up for, regardless of email contact opt-in status. We also reserve the right to contact you if compelled to do so as part of a legal proceeding or if there has been a violation of any applicable licensing, warranty, or purchase agreements.

Oxygen Forensics is retaining these rights because in limited cases we feel that we may need the right to contact you as a matter of law or regarding matters that will be important to you. These rights do not allow us to contact you to market a new or existing Service if you have asked us not to do so, and issuance of these types of communications is rare.

User Account Preferences

When you create a User Account with Oxygen Forensics and/or provide your email address and other personal identification information, based on your personal preferences, we may periodically contact you via email and provide information about special offers and promotions that may be of interest to you. These communications will relate to Oxygen Forensics’ offers and/or the promotions of select, reputable third parties with whom we have a strategic marketing relationship because they offer products or services that Oxygen Forensics believes would be of interest to you. We may use a third-party email service provider to send emails to you. This service provider is prohibited from using your email address for any purpose other than to send Oxygen Forensics-related emails. If you do not wish to receive emails with updates and information please unsubscribe by sending an email to In addition, every time you receive an email, you will be provided the choice to “opt-out” of future emails by following the instructions provided in the email. You may also opt-out online by updating your User Account as described under “User Account” in Section A above.

If you wish to opt-out of receiving emails, the sharing or retention of any personal identification information, or otherwise change your personal preferences, you must contact Oxygen Forensics at

To ensure that your request is honored, you must provide Oxygen Forensics with information sufficient for us to accurately identify and access your records. The information we require is your full name, address and the email address you provided to Oxygen Forensics when you requested Services or Software. Oxygen Forensics reserves the right to contact you to verify that we have accurately identified your record.


Oxygen Forensics complies with the principles of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council “On the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (“GDPR”). If you are a natural person (“Qualified Individual”) of the European Union within the meaning of the GDPR, you are afforded certain additional rights by the GDPR as further described within this Section D.

Data Controller

When and if Oxygen Forensics receives your personal information directly from you through its Website, it performs the functions of a Data Controller, as defined by the GDPR, and has the ability to determine how personal data is collected, for what purposes, and how this data is to be processed. As the controller, Oxygen Forensics has implemented many technical and operational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through its Website, and Services. Contact information for the Data Protection Officer can be found in Section E, below.

Data Processor

Oxygen Forensics processes your data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Oxygen Forensics uses industry standard safeguards to secure your information. When and if Oxygen Forensics acts as a Processor for you (you being the Controller), it shall be done pursuant to a separate written agreement.


If you are a Qualified Individual, consents concerning your personal information are handled in compliance with the GDPR. Where and if consent requirements under this Privacy Policy conflict with the GDPR, the GDPR prevails if the regulation applies to you.

Legal Basis for Processing

Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary to provide a service, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(b). The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1)(c). If the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect your vital interests or of another natural person, then the processing is based on Art. 6(1)(d). Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1)(f), if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms under the GDPR.

GDPR Rights:

1. Right of Confirmation

You may obtain confirmation of whether or not your personal data is being processed. If you wish to exercise your right of confirmation, you may contact Oxygen Forensics and/or its Data Protection Officer.

2. Right of Access

You may obtain information about your stored personal data at any time and a copy of this information. If you wish to exercise your right of access, you may contact Oxygen Forensics and/or its respective Data Protection Officer.

3. Right to Rectification

You may request the rectification of inaccurate personal data. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, by means of providing a supplementary statement. If you wish to exercise your right of rectification, you may contact Oxygen Forensics and/or its respective Data Protection Officer, as outlined in Section E below.

4. Right to Erasure (Right to be Forgotten)

You may request the erasure of your personal information by contacting Oxygen Forensics and/or its respective Data Protection Officer. Furthermore, you may delete your User Account information by accessing your User Account settings page on the Application(s). Please note that while any changes you make will be reflected in active user databases within a reasonable time, we may retain all information you submit for the prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so, such as for archiving purposes within the public interest.

5. Right of Restriction of Processing

You have the right to restrict processing where one of the following applies:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the Controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to processing pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

6. Right of Data Portability

You may request to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the right to transmit this data to another controller without interference. Furthermore, you may have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

7. Right to Object to Automated Decision Making

You may object to decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects or similarly significantly affects you, as long as the decision is not necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and Oxygen Forensics; or is not authorized by European Union or Member State law to which you are subject; or is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

8. Right to Object to Processing

You may object to the processing of your personal data by contacting our Data Protection Officer outlined in Section E below, unless there are legitimate grounds for the processing within the public interest, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If Oxygen Forensics processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to Oxygen Forensics to the processing for direct marketing purposes, then we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

Retention Policy

We only retain personally identifiable information about you for as long as your User Account remains active or for a limited period of time as long as we need it to provide you with Services or otherwise fulfill the purposes for which we have initially collected it, unless otherwise required by law. We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, archival purposes, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

Cross Border Data Transfers; Storage

If and when sharing of information involves cross-border data transfers, for instance to the United States of America and other jurisdictions, Oxygen Forensics uses EU Standard Contract Clauses and other suitable safeguards to permit data transfers from the EU to other countries. Where the Applications allow for users to be located in the European Union, their personal information may be transferred to countries outside of the EU. The Standard Contractual Clauses commit companies transferring and receiving your personal information to protecting the privacy and security of your data.

As a necessary part of Oxygen Forensics Services, any information you provide may be transferred to and stored on servers that may be outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). Oxygen Forensics’ current server infrastructure is provided by Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), A2Hosting, and Bluehost. Respectively, these partners’ servers are located in Virginia, USA; Michigan, USA; and Utah, USA, though these locations may change from time to time. Oxygen Forensics uses these partners’ hosting services because they all participate in the Data Privacy Framework, and we trust their operations will always hold your personal information securely. As always, whenever Oxygen Forensics transfers or stores your data it takes steps to help ensure that your data and privacy rights continue to be protected in accordance with applicable laws and this Privacy Policy.

Should there be a conflict between Oxygen Forensics’ Privacy Policy and the Framework, the Framework shall govern.

In compliance with the Framework, Oxygen Forensics is committed to resolve complaints about your privacy and its collection or use or your personal information. As outlined in Section A, above, Oxygen Forensics may use some third party services in order to provide You with functionality and services pertaining to Your use of the Website and Services. In the case of onward transfers to these third parties, Oxygen Forensics may be liable for breaches of personal information regarding such transfers.

Should you be a Qualified Individual and have an inquiry or complaint concerning Oxygen Forensics’ Privacy Policy or use of your personal data, you should follow the procedures as outlined in Section E, above.

Under certain limited conditions, you may be able to invoke binding arbitration as provided under the Framework to address an otherwise unresolved complaint.
