Privacy Policy



This statement applies to all services Darkscope operates. Modern information and communication technologies play a fundamental role in the operation of an organisation like Darkscope.

2.Confidentiality and Security


Darkscope has implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. All of Darkscope employees and data processors who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of all personal data collected by, provided to, and used by Darkscope.


Darkscope will not disclose your personal data to any government institution, authority, or 3rd party unless we are required to do so by law or other regulation.

Darkscope, its employees or data processors do not have access to the passwords used by individual users of the website.


The Service uses SSL/TLS encryption during transfer to protect any data. However, the internet is not in itself a secure environment. Where data privacy is a concern, users should at their discretion only enter data to the database within a secure environment. This means that the browser used by the person/organisation transferring data must support the encryption used in connection with the Service.
