Your privacy is critically important to us. At Tracklr we have a few fundamental principles:
- We do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can not stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We do not share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- You can update your profile information and preferences at any time.
Tracklr knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. This is how we want to be treated, too.
Like most website operators, Tracklr 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. Tracklr's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Tracklr's visitors use its website. From time to time, Tracklr may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Tracklr also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Tracklr does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Tracklr's websites choose to interact with Tracklr in ways that require Tracklr to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Tracklr gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who decide to use our services to provide an email address or OpenID. Tracklr collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Tracklr. Tracklr 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.
Tracklr may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Tracklr does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Tracklr 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 Tracklr's behalf or to provide services available at Tracklr'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 Tracklr's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Tracklr 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, Tracklr discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Tracklr believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Tracklr, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Tracklr website and have supplied your email address, Tracklr 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 Tracklr 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. Tracklr takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
