Your privacy is critically important to us. At Jigsoar 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.
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, Jigsoar 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. Jigsoar’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Jigsoar’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Jigsoar may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Jigsoar also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Jigsoar 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 Jigsoar’s websites choose to interact with Jigsoar in ways that require Jigsoar to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Jigsoar gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a site at Jigsoar.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Jigsoar are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Jigsoar collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Jigsoar. Jigsoar 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.
Jigsoar may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Jigsoar may monitor the most popular sites built on Jigsoar. Jigsoar may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Jigsoar does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Jigsoar 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 Jigsoar’s behalf or to provide services available at Jigsoar’s websites, 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 Jigsoar’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Jigsoar 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, Jigsoar discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Jigsoar believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Jigsoar, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Jigsoar website and have supplied your email address, Jigsoar 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 Jigsoar and our products. We primarily use our 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. Jigsoar takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Jigsoar, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Jigsoar 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 Jigsoar may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
