CodeLobe.com has a few guiding principles related to privacy:
- Only the minimal personal information neccesary to provide and improve our Services should be collected.
- Personal information should only be shared when required to do so by law, to protect our rights, or in development of our Services.
- Personal information should only be stored on our servers if it's needed to provide or develop one or more of our Services.
Like most website operators, CodeLobe.com 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. CodeLobe.com's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use our Services. From time to time, CodeLobe.com may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the website.
CodeLobe.com also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users submitting content or comments to CodeLobe.com. CodeLobe.com ("we") will only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to CodeLobe.com choose to interact with our Services in ways that require CodeLobe.com to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CodeLobe.com gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to post comments to create an account at CodeLobe.com and provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with CodeLobe.com by purchasing our products are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, CodeLobe.com collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CodeLobe.com. CodeLobe.com 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.
CodeLobe.com may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, CodeLobe.com may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use content heuristics to help identify spam. CodeLobe.com may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CodeLobe.com does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
CodeLobe.com 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 CodeLobe.com's behalf or to provide services available at the CodeLobe.com 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 our Services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. CodeLobe.com 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, CodeLobe.com discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CodeLobe.com believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CodeLobe.com, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of CodeLobe.com 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 news about our Services.
We primarily use CodeLobe.com's development blog 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. CodeLobe.com takes reasonable measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If CodeLobe.com or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that CodeLobe.com 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 CodeLobe.com may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
