This website is brought to you by TextRazor Ltd. We take the privacy of our website users very seriously. We ask that you read this Privacy Policy ('the Policy') carefully as it contains important information about how we will use personal data we collect about you.

For the purposes of the data protection legislation, TextRazor Ltd ('we' or 'us') is the 'data controller' (ie the company who is responsible for, and controls the processing of, your personal data).

We use your data to provide our TextRazor text analysis service to you, keep you informed of our services, and to meet and enforce our legal obligations.

If you agree to us keeping you informed of our products and services, we will collect from you your email address to do this. We will also collect any feedback you give us about your experiences with TextRazor products and services.


We use the personal information we collect about you for the following purposes:

  • to help us identify you and any accounts your business or organisations hold with us;
  • administration of your account and related billing and support queries;
  • research, statistical analysis and behavioural analysis (this is carried out on an aggregated anonymised basis so that the resulting analysis does not identify you personally);
  • (if you have consented to it) marketing—see 'Marketing and opting out', below;
  • billing and order fulfilment;
  • improving the products and services we provide.


If you have given permission, we may contact you by email about products that may be of interest to you. If you prefer not to receive any direct marketing communications from us, you can opt out at any time. See further 'Your rights', below.

  • We use a number of hosting partners. They host our software and store our customer information, which will include your personal data. They are as follows:
  • We also share your information with our professional advisers (such as our accountants), and with others that we use to comply with our tax and legal obligations.
  • If we sell our business, we will provide your personal information to the business that buys it.
  • others if we are under a duty to do so, or in order to enforce or apply the TextRazor terms of use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of TextRazor Ltd, our subscribers, or other third parties.


We will use technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data, for example:

  • access to your account is controlled by a password and username that are unique to you;
  • we store your personal data on secure servers; and
  • payment details are encrypted using SSL technology.

While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred from you or to you via the internet.
