Privacy Policy


This privacy policy is designed to inform users of our proprietary RetroacDev tax credit calculation platform, including the web application and website available at and, respectively, all sub-sites and micro-sites controlled by us, and any related smartphone or mobile application (collectively, the “Service”) about how Zagaran, Inc. (“Zagaran”, “we” or “us”) gathers and uses personal information submitted to Zagaran through the Service. Zagaran will take reasonable steps to protect user privacy consistent with the guidelines set forth in this policy and with all applicable U.S. laws. In this policy, “user” or “you” means any person viewing the Service or submitting any personal information to Zagaran in connection with using the Service.

By accessing our website or using the Service, or by otherwise providing us with your personally identifying information, you are accepting the practices and policies described in the Privacy Policy. Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time, and any changes will be posted on this page, and if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice. If you have questions or concerns regarding the Privacy Policy, you should first contact us at

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including third party services used by Zagaran. For these third party services, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the applicable third party privacy policies.

What Information Do We Collect?

Personal Information: If you sign up to create an account, we may ask you for certain personal information for the account, including the name of the individual creating the account, business email address, business phone number, company name, and payment information such as credit card number (the “Personal Information”). In addition, if you contact Zagaran and disclose additional personal information, we may store that Personal Information.

User Data: When you use the Service, you may transmit to Zagaran certain user-specific data (collectively, “User Data”) that we use to provide the Service, including to but not limited to Import Data (as defined below) and other data relating to your operating and systems environment, your use of the Service, and any additional information that the Service allows you to input, such as data relating to your employees and contractors, questions you answer to describe your research and development projects, and any feedback or questions you send us.

Import Data: Without limiting the above, you authorize Zagaran to collect the data you import or make available from (a) the compatible online source code management platform you have provided Zagaran access to, which compatible platforms currently include GitHub and BitBucket (your “Connected Platform”), and (b) your personal computer (all such data, “Import Data”). When you link your Connected Platform account, we collect and store your username (but never your password), and the repository name and organization name of repositories you have access to. When you choose to import data from a repository, we collect and store all submitted code changes (“Commits”) including, for each commit: the author’s username and email address; the submission date and time; the Commit message; and the name of the file(s) that were changed and the number of lines added and subtracted to each file. We do not access or collect the actual source code from any repository; provided that, for BitBucket users only, we read (but do not store) the actual lines of code changed in each commit (the “commit diff”) solely for the purposes of counting the number of lines changed and of cryptographically hashing the total diff to establish whether two commits are the same.

Web Tracking Information: We, and third party service providers (including Google Analytics) that we engage to provide services to us (“Contractors”), may use web tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags and clear GIFs in order to operate the Service efficiently and to collect data related to usage of the Service. Such collected data (“Web Tracking Information”) may include the address of the websites you visited before and after you visited the Zagaran website, the type of browser you are using, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, what pages in the Service you visit and what links you clicked on, and whether you opened email communications we send to you. In order to collect Web Tracking Information and to make your use of the Service more efficient, we may store cookies on your computer. We may also use web tracking technologies that are placed in web pages on the Service or in email communications to collect information about actions that users take when they interact with the Service or such email communications, and our Contractors may also do so. We do not correlate Web Tracking Information to individual user Personal Information. Some Web Tracking Information may include data, such as IP address data, that is unique to you. You may be able to modify your browser settings to alter which web tracking technologies are permitted when you use the Service, but this may affect the performance of the Service.

How Do We Use the Information We Collect?

Personal Information: We will use and store Personal Information for the purpose of delivering the Service (including to establish or renew your RetroacDev account), and to analyze and enhance the operation of the Service. We may also use Personal Information for the internal operational and administrative purposes of the Service.

User Data: We will use the User Data (including the Import Data) to provide the Service. We may aggregate User Data across all or a subset of users to create statistical information relating to the use of the Service, as described in “Aggregate Information” below.

Aggregate Information: We will also create statistical, aggregated data relating to our users and the Service for analytical purposes. Aggregated data is derived from Personal Information and User Data but in its aggregated form it does not relate to or identify any particular client or individual or any specific user’s data. This data is used to understand our customer base and to develop, improve and market our services.

Web Tracking Information: We use Web Tracking Information to administer the Service and to understand how well our Service is working, to store your user preferences, and to develop statistical information on usage of the Service. This allows us to determine which features users like best to help us improve our Service, to personalize your user experience, and to measure overall effectiveness.

Legal Exception: Notwithstanding the above, Zagaran may use Personal Information and User Data to the extent required by law or legal process, or if in Zagaran’s reasonable discretion use is necessary to investigate fraud or any threat to the safety of any individual, to protect Zagaran’s legal rights or to protect the rights of third parties.

Except as described above, we disclose User Data only to you, the user who submitted the User Data to Zagaran, to our Contractors who are bound by obligations of confidentiality, and as described under “Permitted Disclosures” below.

Web Tracking Information: We disclose Web Tracking Information to Contractors, in order to analyze the performance of the Service and the behavior of users, and to operate and improve the Service.

Aggregate Information: We may disclose aggregated data that does not contain Personal Information that identifies any particular user or person to any third parties, such as potential customers, business partners, advertisers, and funding sources, in order to describe our business and operations.

Permitted Disclosures: Notwithstanding the foregoing, Zagaran reserves the right to disclose any information Zagaran collects in connection with the Service, without further notice to you (a) to any successor to Zagaran’s business as a result of any merger, acquisition or similar transaction; and (b) to any law enforcement, tax, or regulatory authority to the extent required by law or if, in Zagaran’s reasonable discretion, disclosure is necessary to investigate fraud or any threat to the safety of any individual, to protect Zagaran’s legal rights or to protect the rights of third parties.
