Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. At Hungerball we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

  • 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 our site

It is Hungerball’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Hungerball 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. Hungerball’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Hungerball’s visitors use its website.

Hungerball also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Hungerball only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Hungerball’s websites choose to interact with Hungerball in ways that require Hungerball to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Hungerball gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive Hungerball updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, Hungerball collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Hungerball. Hungerball 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.

Aggregated Statistics

Hungerball may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its website. For instance, Hungerball may monitor the most popular pages on the website or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Hungerball may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Hungerball does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Hungerball 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 Hungerball’s behalf or to provide services available at Hungerball’s website, 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 Hungerball’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Hungerball 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, Hungerball discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Hungerball believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Hungerball, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the Hungerball website and have supplied your email address, Hungerball 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 Hungerball and our products. We primarily use our 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. Hungerball takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised 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 website each time the visitor returns. Hungerball uses cookies to help Hungerball identify and track visitors, their usage of Hungerball website, and their website access preferences. Hungerball visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Hungerball’s website, with the drawback that certain features of Hungerball’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If Hungerball, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Hungerball 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 Hungerball may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Hungerball may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Hungerball’s sole discretion. Hungerball encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
