Privacy & legal notice
No one likes to feel their information might be made public. Well, you trust that we will never do that to you. If you subscribe to our mailing list, our irregular updates is all you will get. No third party emails, no selling of email addresses. That’s just anti-social behaviour. So, without further ado, here is our official Privacy & Legals, for those of you who like reading long copy.
Like most website operators, Ponderance Collective 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. Ponderance Collective’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Ponderance Collective’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Ponderance Collective may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Ponderance Collective’s websites choose to interact with Ponderance Collective in ways that require Ponderance Collective to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Ponderance Collective gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Ponderance Collective are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Ponderance Collective collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Ponderance Collective. Ponderance Collective 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.
Ponderance Collective may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Ponderance Collective may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Ponderance Collective may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Ponderance Collective does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Ponderance Collective discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Ponderance Collective’s behalf or to provide services available at Ponderance Collective’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Ponderance Collective’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Ponderance Collective will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Ponderance Collective discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Ponderance Collective believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Ponderance Collective, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Ponderance Collective website and have supplied your email address, Ponderance Collective 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 Ponderance Collective 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. Ponderance Collective takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Ponderance Collective, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Ponderance Collective 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 acquiror of Ponderance Collective may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
