Our privacy promise to you in short: Our attendees are not for sale. Neither is those of you visiting our website or using any other of our electronic services.
For some services, you have to provide us with your personal information. In that case we only use it to improve your user experience and make our services better.
That’s the basic idea. We care for your privacy.
Like most website operators, Foo Café 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. Foo Café’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Foo Café’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Foo Café release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Foo Café also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Foo Café 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 also collect and use IP addresses to block users who violate our Terms of Service and/or Code of Conduct.
Certain visitors to Foo Café’s websites choose to interact with Foo Café in ways that require Foo Café to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Foo Café gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Foo Café collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Foo Café. Foo Café 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 can prevent them from engaging in certain service-related activities.
Additionally, some interactions, such as posting a comment, will ask for optional personal information. For instance, when posting a comment, this information 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.
Foo Café collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Service. For instance, Foo Café monitor the most popular parts of www.foocafe.org. Foo Café can display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Foo Café does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Foo Café 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 Foo Café’s behalf or to provide services available at Foo Café’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. By using the Service, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Foo Café 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, Foo Café discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Foo Café believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Foo Café, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Service and have supplied your email address, occasionally Foo Café will 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 Foo Café. 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.
Foo Café takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Foo Café 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 will be stored on third party storage and transmitted through third party networks.
At our sole discretion, the Privacy Promise, or parts of it, can be amended by Foo Café. Although most changes are likely to be minor, we will always inform you of any changes made to the Privacy Promise and will give you the option to terminate all or any of the Services your are involved in. Your continued use of the Service after any change in this Privacy Promise will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
