Your privacy is critically important to us. At Team 218 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.
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
Team 218 operates this website. It is Team 218’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Team 218 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. Team 218’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use its website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Team 218 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our website. Team 218 only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Team 218’s website choose to interact with Team 218 in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Team 218 – by purchasing items, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Team 218 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Team 218. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Team 218 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, We may monitor the Team 218 website or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.Team 218 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Team 218 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Team 218 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 Team 218’s behalf or to provide services available at Team 218’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 Team 218’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Team 218 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, Team 218 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Team 218 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Team 218, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Team 218’s website and have supplied your email address, Team 218 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 Team 218 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. Team 218 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Team 218, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Team 218 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 Team 218 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to the Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
