Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us.

The operators of this website and its content have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • 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.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

The operator of this website (“The Website Operator”) operates several websites including,,,, and others. It is The Website Operator’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Website Operator 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. The Website Operator’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Website Operator’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Website Operator may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Website Operator also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on posts. The Website Operator 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 blog 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 The Website Operator’s websites choose to interact with The Website Operator in ways that require The Website Operator to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Website Operator gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with The Website Operator – by purchasing products, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Website Operator collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Website Operator. The Website Operator 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.

Aggregated Statistics

The Website Operator may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Website Operator may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Website Operator does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Website Operator 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 The Website Operator’s behalf or to provide services available at The Website Operator’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 The Website Operator’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Website Operator 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, The Website Operator discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Website Operator believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Website Operator, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Website Operator website and have supplied your email address, The Website Operator 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 The Website Operator 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. The Website Operator takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Website Operator uses cookies to help The Website Operator identify and track visitors, their usage of The Website Operator website, and their website access preferences. The Website Operator visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using The Website Operator’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of The Website Operator’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If The Website Operator, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Website Operator 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 The Website Operator may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by The Website Operator and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, The Website Operator may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in The Website Operator’s sole discretion. The Website Operator encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
