Your privacy is incredibly important to us. Our number one rule is to not ask you for any personal information unless we really need it. PheedLoop doesn’t need your personal information to function, but we do expect you to play fair.
This Policy explains how PheedLoop collects, uses and discloses personal information concerning you. It is PheedLoop’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, PheedLoop 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. PheedLoop’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how PheedLoop’s visitors use its website. From time to time, PheedLoop may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
PheedLoop also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and anonymous voters. PheedLoop only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Certain visitors to PheedLoop’s websites choose to interact with PheedLoop in ways that require PheedLoop to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PheedLoop gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a name and email address. In each case, PheedLoop collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with PheedLoop. PheedLoop does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
PheedLoop may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Note that PheedLoop uses Google Analytics to acquire basic data about visitors to the website. PheedLoop may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PheedLoop does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PheedLoop 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 in order to process it on PheedLoop’s behalf or to provide services available at PheedLoop’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 PheedLoop, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. PheedLoop will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, PheedLoop discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PheedLoop believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PheedLoop, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of PheedLoop and have supplied your email address, PheedLoop may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with PheedLoop and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. PheedLoop takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If PheedLoop, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that PheedLoop goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of PheedLoop may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
