Like most website operators, Open In Indy 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. Open In Indy's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Open In Indy's visitors use its website. From time to time, Open In Indy may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Open In Indy also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Open In Indy does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Open In Indy's websites (http://openinindy.com) choose to interact with Open In Indy in ways that require Open In Indy to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Open In Indy gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, Open In Indy collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with Open In Indy. Open In Indy 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.
Open In Indy may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Open In Indy may reveal how many downloads a particular version got, or say which plugins are most popular based on checks from api.Open In Indy, a web service used by WordPress installations to check for new versions of WordPress and plugins. However, Open In Indy does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Open In Indy 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 Open In Indy's behalf or to provide services available at Open In Indy'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 Open In Indy's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Open In Indy 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, Open In Indy discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Open In Indy believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Open In Indy, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a Open In Indy website and have supplied your email address, Open In Indy 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 Open In Indy and our products. We primarily use our 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. Open In Indy takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
