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