Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us.

Mergify knows that you care how information about you and your customers is used and shared. We appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly.

We put in place measures to ensure that any personal information or data that we obtain from you is processed in accordance with the accepted principles of proper information handling.

This policy gives you information about how we treat personal information received from our website visitors and customers.

Information collection and use

We collect visitors information in the following ways:

  • Mergify 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. Mergify collects this to better understand how visitors use its website.

  • Mergify uses cookies to store information on your computer --- see the Cookies section.

If you authorize Mergify to access your GitHub account, we'll use your account information to act on your behalf to conduct automation as configured for your repositories. We'll use your GitHub email address to contact you about significant changes regarding Mergify that concerns you. We respect your privacy and will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies without your express permission.

How does Mergify access my GitHub account?

When you sign up for Mergify, we collect an OAuth token from GitHub, which allows us to request data from the GitHub API on your behalf. This OAuth token is stored encrypted and securely in our database and is protected from unauthorized access.

How does Mergify access my source code?

Other than reading your Mergify configuration file to determine the actions to execute, the only time Mergify accesses your repository directly is when checking out the source code on one of our engine machines. This data is not stored for longer than required by the operations. Source code is only accessed via HTTPS.

Mergify 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 to process it on Mergify's behalf or to provide services available at Mergify'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 the Service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

Mergify discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Mergify believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Mergify, third parties or the public at large.
