Your privacy is important to us. At Diggit-plantshare we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don't ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don't share your personal information with anyone, except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don't store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, Diggit-plantshare 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. Diggit-plantshare's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Diggit-plantshare's visitors use its website. From time to time, Diggit-plantshare may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of Diggit-plantshare's website.
Diggit-plantshare may also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Diggit-plantshare 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 Diggit-plantshare choose to interact with Diggit-plantshare in ways that require Diggit-plantshare to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Diggit-plantshare gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account at Diggit-plantshare.com to provide identifying information like a username, an email address and a password. Diggit-plantshare collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitors' interaction with Diggit-plantshare. We also request from a visitor who wishes to give a plant the physical address where the plant is made available (a public location or the visitor's personal address). This address will of course be disclosed on Diggit-plantshare's website since this is necessary to fulfill the purpose of this particular visitor's interaction with Diggit-plantshare. Other than this address, Diggit-plantshare does not disclose personally-identifying information, except as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Diggit-plantshare may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Diggit-plantshare may monitor where plant releases occur and at what time of the day. Diggit-plantshare may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Diggit-plantshare does not disclose personally-identifying information, except as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Diggit-plantshare 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 Diggit-plantshare's behalf or to provide services available on Diggit-plantshare's website, 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 Diggit-plantshare's website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Diggit-plantshare will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Diggit-plantshare shall disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information when required to do so by law, or when Diggit-plantshare believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Diggit-plantshare, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Diggit-plantshare's website and/or have supplied your email address, Diggit-plantshare may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with Diggit-plantshare news. We primarily use our blog or other services like facebook and twitter 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. Diggit-plantshare takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
