Our browser extension only works on the blank page of a new tab. Therefore, we do not see or collect any of your data or behaviour outside of our tabbing page and website. What you do online is your business and yours alone.
OpenTabs is a privacy friendly non-profit that only collects the data needed to run and improve our service. We do not create user profiles depending on web behaviour and will never sell your data to anyone. We do not use any cookies, and with the exception the email address you provide to create an account, do not store any user-specific sensitive information such as IP addresses. We use Google Analytics to collect anonymous aggregate data. This means that we can measure our traffic and metrics such as how many users we have, but we cannot tell who you are or link any data back to a particular user.
When creating an account, we collect and securely store only the following information: name, email, number of tabs opened, and whether or not you are logged in. If you chose to not create an account, we temporarily save your name and number of tabs opened on your local storage, which you can remove at any time by clearing your local storage in your browser settings.
We do not collect any data regarding what you search online. The search bar on our extension simply provides a shortcut to your preferred search engine. If you wish to know more about how your data is being collected and used, we suggest you visit the privacy policy page of the specific search engine you are using. If you are looking for a privacy friendly alternative, we recommend using DuckDuckGo.
If you would like a copy of your data or if you wish to delete an account and any information associated with it, please email us at contact@opentabs.org. If you wish to prevent Google Analytics from collecting and using your data, we recommend using Google’s opt-out browser extension.

Children's Information

The Services are not intended for children under 13 years of age. OpenTabs does not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, do not provide personal information to OpenTabs without providing us with consent from your parents. If we discover that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information and we do not have parental consent, we will immediately delete that child's information. If you believe that company has been provided with the personal information of a child under the age of 13 without parental consent, please notify us immediately.

Sharing of Data

We do not share information you have provided to us without your consent, unless:

  • doing so is appropriate to carry out your own request.
  • doing so helps us provide our Services.
  • we believe it's needed to enforce our Terms of Service, or that it's legally required.
  • we believe it's needed to detect, prevent or address fraud, security, or technical issues.
  • otherwise protect our property, legal rights, or that of others.

To provide our Services, we may share data with third-party companies (for example, software providers and cloud storage services) with whom we've contracted. These companies are restricted from using the data in any other way than to provide services to us.

We employ industry standard techniques to protect against unauthorized access of data that we store.

We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, if we, or substantially all of our assets, were acquired, or if we go out of business or enter 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 us or our assets may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. A user is bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the Services after such changes have been first posted.
