Your privacy is very important to us. At Awards.fm we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
It is Awards.fm’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Awards.fm 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. Awards.fm’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Awards.fm’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Awards.fm may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Awards.fm also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Awards.fm 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.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Awards.fm’s websites choose to interact with Awards.fm in ways that require Awards to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Awards gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address.
Those who wish to receive Awards updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Awards collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Awards. Awards.fm 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.
Awards.fm may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Awards may monitor the most popular pages on the awards site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
If Awards.fm, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Awards.fm 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 Awards.fm may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
