Signal Fire, Inc. (“Signal Fire“) operates signalfireinc.com and may operate other websites. It is Signal Fire’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Signal Fire 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. Signal Fire’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Signal Fire’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Signal Fire may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Signal Fire also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on signalfireinc.com blogs/sites. Signal Fire 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/site where the comment was left.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Signal Fire’s websites choose to interact with Signal Fire in ways that require Signal Fire to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Signal Fire gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at signalfireinc.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Signal Fire are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Signal Fire collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Signal Fire. Signal Fire 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.
Signal Fire may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Signal Fire may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Signal Fire does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Signal Fire 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 Signal Fire’s behalf or to provide services available at Signal Fire’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 Signal Fire’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Signal Fire 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, Signal Fire discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Signal Fire believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Signal Fire, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Signal Fire website and have supplied your email address, Signal Fire 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 Signal Fire and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Signal Fire takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Signal Fire, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Signal Fire 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 Signal Fire may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
