No one likes to feel their information might be made public. Well, you trust that we will never do that to you. If you subscribe to our mailing list, our irregular updates is all you will get. No third party emails, no selling of email addresses. That’s just anti-social behaviour. So, without further ado, here is our official Privacy & Legals, for those of you who like reading long copy.
Like most website operators, Republic of Everyone 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. Republic of Everyone’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Republic of Everyone’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Republic of Everyone may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Certain visitors to Republic of Everyone’s websites choose to interact with Republic of Everyone in ways that require Republic of Everyone to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Republic of Everyone gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Republic of Everyone are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Republic of Everyone collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Republic of Everyone. Republic of Everyone 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.
Republic of Everyone may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Republic of Everyone may monitor the most popular blogs on the WordPress.com site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Republic of Everyone may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Republic of Everyone does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Republic of Everyone discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Republic of Everyone’s behalf or to provide services available at Republic of Everyone’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using Republic of Everyone’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Republic of Everyone will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, Republic of Everyone discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Republic of Everyone believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Republic of Everyone, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Republic of Everyone website and have supplied your email address, Republic of Everyone 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 Republic of Everyone 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. Republic of Everyone takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Republic of Everyone, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Republic of Everyone 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 Republic of Everyone may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
