Like most website operators, Efficient Foundations 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. Efficient Foundations’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Efficient Foundations’ visitors use its websites. From time to time, Efficient Foundations may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its websites. Efficient Foundations also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our websites. Efficient Foundations 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 are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the website where the comment was left.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Efficient Foundations’s websites and users of Efficient Foundations’s products and services choose to interact with Efficient Foundations in ways that require Efficient Foundations to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Efficient Foundations gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, Efficient Foundations collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor or users’s interaction with Efficient Foundations. Efficient Foundations does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors or users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities or products and/or services.
Efficient Foundations may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites or users of its products or services. Efficient Foundations may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Efficient Foundations does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Efficient Foundations 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 Efficient Foundations’ behalf or to provide services available at Efficient Foundations’ 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 Efficient Foundations’ websites, products or services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Efficient Foundations 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, Efficient Foundations discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Efficient Foundations believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Efficient Foundations, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Efficient Foundations website, product or service and have supplied your email address, Efficient Foundations 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 Efficient Foundations and our products and services. 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. Efficient Foundations takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Efficient Foundations, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Efficient Foundations 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 Efficient Foundations may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
