Privacy Policy

Who I am

My name is Michael Farrell, the developer of IntelliWebSearch. You may contact me concerning your personal data at this email address:
My website address is:

What personal data I collect and why I collect them

If you install IntelliWebSearch you will be asked to accept the terms in the licence agreement and this privacy policy. If you do not accept them, you will not be able to use the software.

As a software developer, I store and use your personal data only in order to grant you a licence to use the IntelliWebSearch software, to provide you with information you request about the IntelliWebSearch software, or to comply with legal requirements. I do not use your personal data for marketing purposes.

The personal data I collect when you install the software consist of an encrypted code number that identifies your computer (based on certain features of your computer hardware), your licence activation code, your IP address and your email address. When you buy a licence from 2Checkout (formerly Avangate BV), I receive your name, company name, VAT number, postal address, phone number, fax number and email address, if you provide them, plus your IP address. I do not receive your credit card, bank, PayPal or other payment-means-related data. I do not collect or receive any sensitive personal data.

What third parties I receive personal data from

As a software developer, the only third part I receive personal data from is 2Checkout (formerly Avangate BV), as detailed in the paragraph above.

Legal grounds

The legal basis for processing your data is to grant you a licence to use IntelliWebSearch or to take any necessary steps prior to and following fulfilment of your request (“performance of a contract”).

Who I share your personal data with

For administrative purposes, other parties, including the providers of my cloud backup, website and email hosting services, may have access to your personal data. All these parties are compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679, like me.

What automated decision making and/or profiling I do with personal data

I do not use automated decision making or profiling.

How long I retain your personal data

I will keep your personal data for a maximum of five years in order to prevent unauthorized use of the IntelliWebSearch software.
I delete email communications after five years.

What rights you have over your personal data

You may contact me at any time to request a copy, rectification or erasure of your personal data. I will take action without undue delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request. Bear in mind that if I erase your data while you still have a valid licence you may no longer be able to use that licence.
Should you have any concerns about how I process your personal data, please contact me. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in Italy or in the country where you live.

How I protect your personal data

I store and process all of the personal data I hold in strict compliance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679.
The personal data I receive from the IntelliWebSearch software is encrypted with SSL technology, provided you install version or later. The encrypted code number that identifies your computer is, by definition, also encrypted by legacy versions of the software.
Your personal data will be securely stored in my database and in electronic files, hosted within the EU. I use an up-to-date operating system, antivirus program and firewall. I do not keep hard copies.
