Your privacy is critically important to us. We have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
(We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or
income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
- On our websites, we aim to make it as simple as possible
for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines,
kept private, and permanently deleted.
Like most website operators, we collect
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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying
information is to better understand how our visitors use our products. From time to time, we may release
non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by
publishing a report on trends in the usage of our products.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying
information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users
and for users leaving comments. We only
disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same
circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying
information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses may be visible and disclosed to the administrators of where the
comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with it in ways that require us to gather
personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information
that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For
example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in
transactions with us – by donating funds to us, for example – are asked to provide
additional information, including as necessary the personal and
financial information required to process those transactions. In each
case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary
or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us . We do not intentionally 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 activities.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our website. For instance, we may monitor the most popular areas of our site or use spam previously screened to help identify new spam. We may display this information
publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose
personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We disclose potentially personally-identifying and
personally-identifying information only to those of its volunteers, employees,
contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that
information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide
services, and (ii) that have agreed
not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, volunteers, contractors and
affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by
using our products/websites, you consent to the transfer of such
information to them. We 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, we disclose potentially
personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in
response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or
when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably
necessary to protect our property or our rights, third parties
or the public at large. If you are a registered user of and have supplied your email address, we 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 us and our products. We primarily use social media
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. We take all measures
reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use,
alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and
