- We don’t ask for personal information unless we really need it.
- We don’t sell your personal information.
- We log some basic data (IP address, browser user-agent, session cookie) about all visitors. This information is typically discarded, but we occasionally use it for analytics and performance measurements.
- For Floobits users, we may store personal information such as your GitHub username and your e-mail address. If you delete your account, we will delete this information.
- We use third party tools such as Google Analytics and Olark. Some information-sharing with these third parties is unavoidable. For example, unless you use a privacy tool like Ghostery, Google will know your IP address, browser info, etc.
Like most website operators, Floobits 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our website. From time to time, Floobits may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Floobits also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users. Floobits only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to our website choose to interact in ways that require Floobits to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Floobits gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Floobits are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Floobits collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Floobits. Floobits 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.
Floobits may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Floobits may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Floobits does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Floobits 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 behalf of Floobits or to provide services available at Floobits’s website, 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 Floobits, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Floobits 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, Floobits discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Floobits believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Floobits, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered Floobits user and have supplied your email address, Floobits 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 Floobits and our products. 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. Floobits takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Floobits, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the event that Floobits 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 Floobits may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
