Note that the vast majority of this Privacy Policy has been cobbled together from bits and pieces of the Wikimedia Foundation Privacy Policy.

"We" and "our" are meant to mean Robert Baruch, who is the owner and operator of this site. For the protection of this site and other users, if you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, you may not use this site.

We do not share your information, and we keep it confidential, except as specified below.

The information we receive

Because of how browsers work and similar to other major websites, we receive some information automatically when you visit this site. This information includes the type of device you are using (possibly including unique device identification numbers, for some beta versions of our mobile applications), the type and version of your browser, your browser's language preference, the type and version of your device's operating system, in some cases the name of your internet service provider or mobile carrier, the website that referred you to this site, which pages you request and visit, and the date and time of each request you make to this site. We also receive the IP address of the device (or your proxy server) you are using to access the Internet, which could be used to infer your geographical location.

We also use Google Analytics to analyze the use of this site. Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on user interactions on this site. These cookies are used to store non-personally identifiable information. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains. See also the Google Analytics Privacy Policy.

The use of your information

We use this information to administer the site, provide greater security, and fight vandalism; optimize mobile applications, customize content and set language preferences, test features to see what works, and improve performance; understand how users interact with this site, track and study use of various features, gain understanding about the demographics of the site, and analyze trends.

The protection of your information

We strive to protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, but we are at the mercy of our hosting provider, FastComet. They use a variety of physical and technical measures, policies, and procedures (such as access control procedures, network firewalls, and physical security) designed to protect our systems and your personal information. Unfortunately, there's no such thing as completely secure data transmission or storage, so we can't guarantee that our security will not be breached (by technical measures or through violation of FastComet's, or our, policies and procedures).

The retention of your information

Once we receive personal information from you, we keep it for the shortest possible time that is consistent with the maintenance, understanding, and improvement of this site, and our obligations under applicable U.S. law. Non-personal information may be retained indefinitely.

Legal reasons we might be forced to share your information

We may access, preserve, or disclose your personal information if we reasonably believe it necessary to satisfy a valid and legally enforceable warrant, subpoena, court order, law or regulation, or other judicial or administrative order. However, if we believe that a particular request for disclosure of a user's information is legally invalid or an abuse of the legal system and the affected user does not intend to oppose the disclosure themselves, we will try our best to fight it. We are committed to notifying you via email at least ten (10) calendar days, when possible, before we disclose your personal information in response to a legal demand. However, we may only provide notice if we are not legally restrained from contacting you, there is no credible threat to life or limb that is created or increased by disclosing the request, and you have provided us with an email address.

Nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal objections or defenses you may have to a third party's request (whether it be civil, criminal, or governmental) to disclose your information. We recommend seeking the advice of legal counsel immediately if such a request is made involving you.

Changes to this policy

Because things naturally change over time and we want to ensure our Privacy Policy accurately reflects our practices and the law, it may be necessary to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time. We reserve the right to do so in the following manner:

  • In the event of substantial changes, we will provide the proposed changes to our users on this page at least thirty calendar days prior to implementing the changes.
  • For minor changes, such as grammatical fixes, administrative or legal changes, or corrections of inaccurate statements, the changes will be made immediately and without notice.

We ask that you please review the most up-to-date version of our Privacy Policy. Your continued use of the site after this Privacy Policy becomes effective constitutes acceptance of this Privacy Policy on your part. Your continued use of this site after any subsequent version of this Privacy Policy becomes effective, following notice as outlined above, constitutes acceptance of that version of the Privacy Policy on your part.
