The Gist

FeatureSwitches will collect certain non-personally identify information about you as you use our sites. We may use this data to better understand our users. We can also publish this data, but the data will be about a large group of users, not individuals.

We will also ask you to provide personal information, but you’ll always be able to opt out. If you give us personal information, we won’t do anything evil with it.

We can also use cookies, but you can choose not to store these.

That’s the basic idea, but you must read through the entire Privacy Policy below and agree with all the details before you use any of our sites.

Reuse

This document is based upon the Automattic Privacy Policy and is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike License 2.5.

Automattic is not connected with and does not sponsor or endorse FeatureSwitches or its use of the work.

FeatureSwitches makes available services include our web sites (http://featureswitches.com/), our blog, our API, and any other software, sites, and services offered by FeatureSwitches in connection to any of those (taken together, the “Service”). It is FeatureSwitches’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Visitors

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

FeatureSwitches also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. FeatureSwitches 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. We may also collect and use IP addresses to block users who violated our Terms of Service.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to FeatureSwitches’s websites choose to interact with FeatureSwitches in ways that require FeatureSwitches to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FeatureSwitches gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. FeatureSwitches collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with FeatureSwitches. FeatureSwitches 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 Service-related activities.

Additionally, some interactions, such as posting a comment, may ask for optional personal information. For instance, when posting a comment, may provide a website that will be displayed along with a user’s name when the comment is displayed. Supplying such personal information is completely optional and is only displayed for the benefit and the convenience of the user.

Aggregated Statistics

FeatureSwitches may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to and users of the Service. For instance, FeatureSwitches may monitor the most popular parts of the http://featureswitches.com/. FeatureSwitches may display this information in the aggregate publicly or provide it to others. However, FeatureSwitches does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

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

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the Service each time the visitor returns. FeatureSwitches uses cookies to help FeatureSwitches identify and track visitors, their usage of FeatureSwitches Service, and their Service access preferences. FeatureSwitches visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using FeatureSwitches’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of FeatureSwitches’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Data Storage

FeatureSwitches uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Service. You understand that although you retain full rights to your data, it may be stored on third party storage and transmitted through third party networks.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, FeatureSwitches may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in FeatureSwitches’s sole discretion. FeatureSwitches encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
