Your privacy is critically important to us. At OpenCompany we have a few fundamental principles:
Like most website operators, OpenCompany 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. OpenCompany's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how OpenCompany's visitors use its website. From time to time, OpenCompany may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
OpenCompany also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on OpenCompany.me topics and resources. OpenCompany 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 blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to OpenCompany.me choose to interact with OpenCompany in ways that require OpenCompany to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that OpenCompany gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at OpenCompany.me to provide a username and email address. OpenCompany collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with OpenCompany. OpenCompany 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.
OpenCompany may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, OpenCompany may monitor the most popular topics and resources on the site. OpenCompany may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, OpenCompany does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
OpenCompany 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 OpenCompany’s behalf or to provide services available at OpenCompany’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 OpenCompany’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. OpenCompany 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, OpenCompany discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when OpenCompany believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of OpenCompany, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an OpenCompany website and have supplied your email address, OpenCompany 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 OpenCompany and our products. 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. OpenCompany takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If OpenCompany, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the event that OpenCompany 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 OpenCompany may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
