Privacy Policy

This privacy policy was adapted from Automattic, and is licensed under a Creative Commons Sharealike license.

Your privacy is critically important to us. At PubNiche we have a few fundamental principles:

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data, please contact our support team.

PubNiche, LLC ("PubNiche") makes available services include our web sites (http://pubniche.com/), our blog, our API, and any other software, sites, and services offered by PubNiche in connection to any of those (taken together, the "Service").

It is PubNiche's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Visitors

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

PubNiche also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our websites. PubNiche 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 where the comment was left.

We may also collect and use IP addresses to block users who violated our Terms of Service.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to PubNiche's websites choose to interact with PubNiche in ways that require PubNiche to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that PubNiche gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with PubNiche are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, PubNiche collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with PubNiche. PubNiche 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 Service-related activities.

Additionally, some interactions, such as posting a comment, ask for personal information.

Aggregated Statistics

PubNiche may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to and users of the Service. For instance, PubNiche may monitor the most popular parts of the Service or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. PubNiche may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, PubNiche does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

PubNiche 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 PubNiche's behalf or to provide services available at PubNiche'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 Service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

PubNiche 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, PubNiche discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when PubNiche believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of PubNiche, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of the Service and have supplied your email address, PubNiche 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 PubNiche and our products. We primarily use our website and 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. PubNiche takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

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 Service each time the visitor returns. PubNiche uses cookies to help PubNiche identify and track visitors, their usage of PubNiche website, and their Service access preferences. PubNiche visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using PubNiche's websites, with the drawback that certain features of PubNiche's websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Data Storage

PubNiche uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Service. You understand that although you retain full rights to your data, it may be stored on third party storage and transmitted through third party networks.

Business Transfers

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

Ads

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 PubNiche and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, PubNiche may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in PubNiche's sole discretion. PubNiche 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.
