Privacy Policy


Website Visitors

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

Collabedit also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for website visitors. Collabedit only discloses user IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.


Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

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


Statistics

Collabedit may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to it's website.


Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Collabedit 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 Collabedit's behalf or to provide services available at Collabedit'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 Collabedit's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Collabedit 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, Collabedit discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Collabedit believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Collabedit, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Collabedit website and have supplied your email address, Collabedit 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 Collabedit and our products. 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. Collabedit takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
