Security and Privacy
We take your privacy and security very seriously. When you choose to use our site or our products, you're entrusting us with something important to you. We're going to do everything we can to make sure that your information stays safe and private. The legalese below basically says that we do actually collect your personal information, that we'll be very careful with it and that if somebody tries to mess with us or you, we can do what we need to to stop them and make sure it doesn't happen again.
Our lawyers are somewhat old-school and believe strongly in the power of dense legalese to protect everybody involved. If anything on this page makes your spidey-sense tingle, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do whatever we can to improve the situation.
Collection and use of non-personal information
We collect non-personally-identifiable (anonymous) information about you, such as the server your computer is logged into or your browser type. Other examples of non-personally-identifiable information include:
- Your IP address (a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web; many Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address).
- Standard information included with every communication sent on the Internet, such as browser type, operating system, browser language, service provider, and local time.
We collect data from the Web logs of the servers -- the computers that "serve up" Web pages - delivering content on this website. This includes information about what you view and, along with information gathered from our other users, we create "aggregate data" reports that we may disclose to third parties. We may also study aggregate data in order to enhance our existing services or develop new services.
Like many other companies, we use a variety of services hosted by third parties to help provide our Services, our blog, customer service system, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics and Kissmetrics. These services may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP request. We use a third-party provider for the majority of our email communications with you. You will always have the right to opt out of email communications from us and we will never sell your email address. See the discussion under "With whom your information may be shared" below concerning the circumstances under which certain of your information may be disclosed to third parties.
With whom your information may be shared
We do not sell trade or rent your personal information to others. As discussed above under "Collection and use of non-personal information," we may provide aggregate statistics about our users, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties or for other marketing and promotional purposes. In these situations, we would not disclose any information that could be used to personally identify you.
Retention of information
Any information we collect may be retained for an indeterminate period of time.

We may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
