Effective Date: December 5, 2016

Thank you for working with us on this open source project and for entrusting us with both your code contributions and your personal information. Holding onto your private information is a serious responsibility, and we want you to know how we are handling it.

The Short Version

We only collect the minimum amount of personal information that is necessary to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us. We do not sell your information to third parties. We do not share your information with third parties. We only use this information as this Privacy Policy describes.

This short version does not tell you everything, so please read on for more details.

What Information We Collect and Why

Information from Web Browsers

If you are just browsing this website, then we collect the same basic information that most websites you visit collect. This includes the use of common internet technologies such as cookies or web server logs. We collect this information from everyone, whether they have an account or not.

The information we collect about all visitors to this website may include the following: (1) the visitor's browser type, (2) language preference, (3) referring site, (4) additional websites requested, and (5) the date and time of each visitor request. We may also collect potentially personally-identifying information such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

Why Do We Collect This?

We collect this information to better understand how visitors to our website use the information and services this website provides, and to monitor and protect the security of the website.

Information from Users with Accounts

If you create an account on this website then we require basic information at the time of account creation. You will create your own user name and password, and we will ask you for a valid email account. You have the option to provide us more information if you wish, and this may include "Personal User Information."

"Personal User Information" is any information about one of this website's users which could, alone or together with other information, personally identify him or her. Information such as a user name and password, an email address, a real name, or a photograph are examples of "Personal User Information."

Personal User Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. We may use aggregated, non-personally identifying information to operate, improve, and optimize our website and service.

Why Do We Collect This?

  1. We need your Personal User Information to create your account and to provide you access to the services you request from this website.
  2. We use your Personal User Information, specifically your user name, to identify you and your contributions on this website.
  3. We will use your email address to communicate with you.
  4. We limit our use of your Personal User Information to the purposes listed in this Privacy Policy.

What Information This Website Does Not Collect

We do not intentionally collect sensitive personal information. This includes social security numbers, national ID numbers, passport numbers, birth dates, genetic data, health information, or religious information. We do not collect any sensitive personal information, and you MUST NOT post or store this kind of information using your account. If you do store any sensitive personal information, even though you should not do so, you are consenting to our storage of that information on our servers, which are in the United States.

Do not post confidential or otherwise sensitive information to this website. This website is public and visible to the entire world.

If you are a child under the age of 13, then you may not have an account on this website. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. We do not knowingly direct any of our content specifically to children under 13. We will close your account if we learn or have reason to suspect that you are a user under the age of 13.

How We Share the Information We Collect

We do not share, sell, rent, or trade Personal User Information with third parties for their commercial purposes.

We do not disclose Personal User Information outside of this website except in the situations listed in this section or in the section below on "How we respond to compelled disclosures."

We do not share aggregated, non-personally identifying information with others about how this website's users are interacting and using this website. We do not sell this information to advertisers or marketers, and we have no intention of doing so.

We do not host advertising on this website. Embedded content from third party websites may include ads. This includes embedded content from places such as YouTube. While we try and avoid having advertising on this website, we cannot always control what third parties show.

We may share Personal User Information with your permission so that we can perform services you have requested.

We may share Personal User Information with a limited number of third-party vendors when we use said vendors to improve our services and when those third parties have agreed to privacy restrictions similar to our own Privacy Policy. Our vendors may perform services such as payment processing, customer support ticketing, network data transmission, and similar services.

We may share your Personal User Information if we are involved in a merger, sale, or acquisition. If any such change of ownership happens, we will ensure that it is under terms that preserve the confidentiality of Personal User Information. The organization receiving any Personal User Information will have to honor any promises we have made in this Privacy Policy or in our Terms of Service.

How We Respond to Compelled Disclosure

We may disclose personally-identifying information or other information we collect about you to law enforcement in response to a valid subpoena, court order, warrant, or similar government order, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our property rights, or those of third parties or the public at large.

We will make a reasonable effort to notify users of any disclosure of their information when permitted, such as if we are prohibited by law or court order from doing so, or in other rare, exigent circumstances.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will provide notification to Users of material changes to this Privacy Policy by posting a notice on our home page.
