Privacy Policy

Last Updated: January 23, 2017 (AccountMover), is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website. AccountMover has established this Privacy Policy to explain what information we collect through our websites and how it is used.

In this policy, "AccountMover" refers to AccountMover developers, volunteers, and consultants, all of whom are bound by law or contract to keep confidential information they receive as part of their assistance to AccountMover.

AccountMover does not sell or rent website visitor information under any circumstances, and we do not share visitor information without prior consent except as compelled by law. (See discussion below.)

Information Gathered


For visitors to our website (, we generally log requests. Circumstances in which AccountMover may need to log and retain technical information for longer than one hour include when we believe it is reasonably necessary for AccountMover's mission and functionality, including situations such as:

  • Site testing
  • Website usage analytics
  • Diagnosis of technical problems
  • Defending against attacks to the site
  • Handling a spike in traffic or other abnormal, short-term circumstances, or
  • Research projects ( in anonymized form ) that serve our overall mission.

Reddit Account Access Credentials

AccountMover must be granted tokens to access a Reddit account using OAuth 2 authentication. The returned tokens will be valid for one hour from the time they are granted, and give AccountMover the ability to perform operations on the Reddit account. These tokens are retained for use by AccountMover while transfer and backup operations are underway. When operations by AccountMover have ceased, these access credentials will usually be revoked automatically.

Reddit Account Information

AccountMover will generally delete all account information retreived from a Reddit account from our caches within one hour. We retain the right to keep random subsets of extracted data for testing purposes. Reddit account data that has been retreived by AccountMover will never be released to the public.


We use persistent ID cookies on this site for account sessions and to ensure that visitors do not receive notifications - such as first-visit sign-up lightboxes - more than intended. We use session cookies on certain portions of the website. Session cookies expire when you close your browser. You can use Tor if you wish to keep your connection information anonymous.

Third-Party Service Providers to AccountMover

Portions of AccountMover sites may be operated by a third-party service provider or providers. These service providers may place session cookies on your computer. AccountMover's service providers may also log standard technical information, such as the numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. Our service providers may also store and organize the personal information collected through this site on our behalf.

AccountMover also may use a third-party hosting provider. For all of AccountMover's service providers, hosting providers and and any other providers we may use in the future, the information collected from AccountMover users remains under our control.

AccountMover may change the specific third-party providers from time to time, and will transfer stored information to any new provider. From time to time, AccountMover may work with third-party consultants or other service providers who may have access to Reddit account information. In such cases, we will restrict their use of Reddit account information in accordance with their assigned tasks.

AccountMover's websites may also provide links to a wide variety of third-party websites, including interactive links to sites like Twitter or mapping services. AccountMover is not responsible for, and does not have any control over, the privacy practices or the content of such third parties.

Changes to Our Policies

AccountMover's Privacy Policy may change from time to time. However, any revised privacy policy will be consistent with AccountMover's mission. If we make any substantive changes to our policies, we will post notice of changes on this page.


AccountMover employs industry standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control.

Although we make good faith efforts to store information collected by AccountMover in a secure operating environment, we cannot guarantee complete security. Information collected by AccountMover will be maintained for a length of time appropriate to our needs.
