The Retro Search


The Retro Search is committed to safeguarding the privacy of its website visitors and the webmasters of indexed web sites. This policy sets out how The Retro Search will treat your personal information.

Site visitors and search

The Retro Search tracks searches conducted on The Retro Search. This data is limited to:

  • the search term(s),
  • the date and time of the search,
  • the Retro Search does not collect personal data related to site visitors.

Indexed site owners

Personal information submitted to The Retro Search will be used for the purposes specified in this privacy policy or in relevant parts of the website.

The Retro Search may collect, store and use the following kinds of personal information:

  • information that you provide to The Retro Search for the purpose of registering your web site for indexing by The Retro Search,
  • any other information that you choose to send to The Retro Search.

The Retro Search may use your personal information to:

  • administer the website,
  • improve the browsing experience by indexing sites you ask us to,
  • send you infrequent,  non-marketing commercial communications about the operation of The Retro Search and maintenance or quality issues,
  • send you email notifications which you have specifically requested,
  • provide third parties with statistical information about site use – but this information will not be used to identify any individual user (third parties are limited to webmasters who have asked The Retro Search to index their web site in The Retro Search – we do not on-sell any information under any circumstances - we hate SPAM too), and
  • deal with inquiries and complaints made by or about you relating to The Retro Search.

Where you submit personal information for requesting inclusion of your site in The Retro Search, The Retro Search will publish and otherwise use that information in accordance with the license you grant to The Retro Search.

The Retro Search may disclose information about you to any of its employees, officers, agents, suppliers or subcontractors insofar as is reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy.

In addition, The Retro Search may disclose your personal information:

  • to the extent that we are required to do so by law,
  • in connection with any legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings,
  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention or illegal web based activity in any form in any country),
  • to any person who we reasonably believe may apply to a court or other competent authority for disclosure of that personal information where, in our reasonable opinion, such court or authority would be reasonably likely to order disclosure of that personal information.

Except as provided in this privacy policy, The Retro Search WILL NOT provide your information to third parties.

In addition, personal information that you submit for publication on The Retro Search will be published on the Internet and may be available, via the Internet, around the world. This is limited to the name of your site and it’s URL including a link to your site in our Site List and links via search results. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others. All other information you provide is only available to The Retro Search administrators.

The Retro Search will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.

The Retro Search will store all the personal information you provide on our hosting provider's secure (password- and firewall- protected) servers.

Of course, data transmission over the Internet is inherently insecure, and The Retro Search cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the Internet.

You are responsible for the accuracy of information you provide.

The Retro Search may update this privacy policy from time-to-time by posting a new version on this website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes.

You may instruct The Retro Search to provide you with any personal information it holds about you.
