Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At World Backup Day, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

614a ltd. (“614a”) operates World Backup Day and the domain. It is 614a’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.


Like most website operators, 614a collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. 614a’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how 614a’s visitors use its website. From time to time, 614a may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.


Certain visitors to 614a’s websites choose to interact with 614a in ways that require 614a to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 614a gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for the newsletter to provide an email address. In each case, 614a collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with 614a. 614a does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


614a may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, 614a may monitor the most popular pages on the site. 614a may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, 614a does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.


614a discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 614a’s behalf or to provide services available at 614a’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using 614a’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. 614a will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 614a discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when 614a believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 614a, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an 614a website and have supplied your email address, 614a may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with 614a and our products. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. 614a takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. 614a uses cookies to help 614a identify and track visitors, their usage of 614a website, and their website access preferences. 614a visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using 614a’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of 614a’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


If 614a, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that 614a goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of 614a may continue to use your personal information only as set forth in this policy.


Although most changes are likely to be minor, 614a may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in 614a’s sole discretion. 614a encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
